Be careful with who u give parts of your heart and your trust. Because your giving them the power to crush your heart when it’s already quite broken.
L. O. V. E. Four letters one syllable that can make Or break a person. It’s like oxygen you need it to survive no matter how much you deny it. Especially when Valentine’s Day is round the corner this four letter word becomes a game.
A business one for eateries and novelty shops , a fun one for youngsters,a serious one for parents and life for the old. Personally I think Valentine’s Day is a tad bit overrated. Do we really need a day to show our significant other how much we care for them. I might sound so predictable (I mean I’m not above a few gifts and cupcakes my self BUT wen your single people constantly gushing about their love life is the last thing anybody wants to hear )
For some people spending this day alone is a CHOICE for others it’s a lack of the right person and the right time .., for a few its denial. For me it’s the first. A choice to be the best form of happiness alone till I feel the need of sharing my sparkle with someone else. No offence to the ones heads over heels over others.
So this is my survival guide to this Valentine’s
1. Ignore alll the gushing happy couples
2. Who said you need others to buy you presents? Go ahead and buy a gift or better gifts.
3. Go out with your real loves Your parents or your best friends ( DO NOT third wheel. You might commit homicide or suicide )
4. At night cosy up and realise how amazingly amazing you are with or without someone
5. Lastly kiss your Harry Styles poster at the back of your room. Cause secretly we all wish we had him on Valentine’s Day as our Valentine right ? ( don’t worr your secret is safe with me ) TMI I’m a Niall girl 😝
Ps. After posting this my cousin said he doesn’t want to kiss Harry so for the guys out there it’s Better if you keep your cooties to your self 😂😂😂
So what’s your plans this Valentine’s?
Love you all.
I’m not sure if today’s sunny or cold ..I’m not sure if you will pass in your test that you forgot you had tomorrow heck I’m not even sure what I had for breakfast this morning (still secretly wishing my mom had made pancakes)But I’m definitely sure your parents , teachers or someone out there must have told you this one thing. And if that was not enough I’m gonna repeat it once more for you You have no idea about the sacrifices we make
When we are in a bit of a fix we definitely think of our situation as the worst. I surely did. My life is so unfair … this only happens to me …. I’m the unluckiest (is that a word ? ). I’m sure you guys have thought that too. But then one day while casually cycling down the street I saw a bunch of homeless kids. They were wearing clothes next to rags .. sharing a single ball and didn’t even have the comforts of a roof but they were so happy. The brightness in their eyes shined so bright as if the sun came out only for them. The way they smiled when they saw me was so innocent and honest. No jealousy.. it wasn’t forced or fake.
Then it struck me hard like Miley Cyrus wreaking ball hard that we all have problems and difficult times. But if people with next to nothing can be so happy then I ,You ,We can surely be happy with more.
We do NOT need Gucci or Armani to make us feel lucky we just need it to make us realise that we bring out the Essence in each of them.
If your sad about a game you can’t buy think about the ones that Make games out of thrash. If your upset about a dress you can’t fit into then think about the ones who are dying of malnutrition.
I’m not assuring you 100% bliss. You will have days when you feel absolutely shit but after a day of moaning try to get out of it.
Try to make the best out of your situation cause in life there are gonna be times when you can’t see the light then you have to harness your own inner sunshine.
The title of this post is my favourite song.,.tell me which ones yours in the comments.
Keep that sparkle shining bright ✨
Pressing rewind….. when I was little I hated shopping with my mom. My legs used to hurt and trial rooms felt more like a workout what with trying a 100 dresses. Fast forward a little… ya , right here stop. There came a time where I adored looking through the glass window and wondered how I would look in each one of them. Time lapse to now there’s no other way I would like to spend my day. Cruising the lanes with my mates or my mom to buy little things that made me feel satisfied.
For each one of us this little rewind, forward, time lapse might be different but I distinctly remember an era when I was obsessed over heels. Those louboutins on the shelf were like candy to the diabetic. After lot of convincing my mom bought me my first pair on my thirteen birthday. I quote her “Now your a teenager you can handle some height ”
Of course I thought I was ready. The first time I wore them for 4 hours and I felt perfectly fine in fact I felt like I was on top of the world LITERALLY. The next time I wore it on a day out with my mom. But as the hours stretched my legs felt like jelly and my head like a pudding.
My point being each facade, each alteration comes with an expiry. I was eying those pair of heels for ages which would be a complete no no for my best friend.( She thinks they are ghastly.)But at the same time she was eying something else.
We all are on a strange lookout for things to make us feel less insecure and more confident but the sooner we realise that all we have is ourselves the more beautiful those things will look on you.
Don’t get me wrong I still love heels heck I own a dozen of them. I have gotten better in faking my self to be completely effortless in them but I feel the most comfortable when I come home and take them off. Like a weight off my shoulder.
Please stop lying to yourselves and maintaining a facade. Cause the day you come in terms with your problems is the day you start finding its solutions. Don’t look out for that extra something instead search inside for that sparkle you were born with.
Its easy too look at a person and say ‘”Oh she is so happy. The world has spared her from the terrors of life.”
But only she knows behind closed doors that it’s all a facade. She can stop pretending cause there is no one to see … To judge the scars she wears proudly.
Only she knows how hard it is to look happy each day. To make the world believe that her life is as they say
Wear your scars proudly so that scarf on your shoulder or that watch on your hand isn’t hiding the cuts but showcasing your guts
I’m sure you all have something special about you. Let me know what it is ? What’s that one thing that you love about you that you never have to fake ??
