THIS IS ME

jeskaalee

This is me: I'm not perfect, there is no such thing.

I'm the kind of woman who when I love, I love big. I put my whole heart into things and I care a whole freakin’ lot. Some people think this is naïve and dangerous and some think it's admirable and beautiful. That's just what they think. The most important thing is being happy with who I am and what I stand for.

This year has been full of so many amazing things it makes me so happy to think back on all the special memories I've been able to make and I am so fucking grateful to have made them with some amazing humans. Some days I wonder how I got so lucky to have the people in my life who love, care and support me through so many things.

It hasn't been all love, special moments and happiness. I have had some fucking shitty moments too. Nights where I lay awake wondering if I'll ever be able to stop the hurt and moments where I've realized I'll never be able to hug someone ever again. They were shit moments but they were just moments.

But that's life, it's all just moments. 

Through all of the things I've been through this year I have never stopped learning. I've never stopped believing in myself. I've never stopped loving others and myself. I've learnt that holding in how I feel is never heathy. I've pushed myself to try new things. When I've fucked up I've said sorry. I've learnt that I may not always say the right thing but my heart is always in the right place. I've learnt that I can't please everybody. I've learnt that compromise is essential. I’ve learnt to judge less and show more compassion. I've learnt to stand up for myself and never to settle for mediocre. When I've made a mistake I've tried my best to make things right. I haven't always gotten what I wanted but I've made the most of what I do have. I've learnt to be dependent on myself to pick myself up but I've also learnt it's okay to ask for support.

I am forever grateful for the good days and the bad days. They taught me to love not only the good but the not so good things which were redirecting me. Just remember you are imperfectly perfect and you should always embrace every moment.

HOW TO WRITE A LOVE LETTER


"LET ALL THAT YOU DO BE DONE IN LOVE".


We live in a very digital world nowadays and I feel that can be a good thing & a bad thing depending on how you look at it. I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes in this modern day we aren't expressing ourselves in person nearly as much as in the past before the world wide web came into our lives. We are texting, calling, emailing, tweeting, instagraming (the list goes on) our thoughts & feelings with each other.

Yes there are totally positives to the fact that we are expressing ourselves & this is a wonderful thing to be able to express ourselves freely & so convinently but I think sometimes it is really nice to say, feel or do something in person or in an old fashioned way, in the moment so you have a real understanding of the sentiment or words being expressed to you.

I have decided this Valentine's Day to write a love letter to Jays.. and actually write it pen to paper and express how much he means to me in the ye old fashioned way. I absolutely love receiving letters.. I think back to my high school days and remember writing sneaky notes at school, posting letters to my friends (even though I saw them every day) & even having a pen pal in England.

This coming Valentine's Day or whenever you like I think you should write a letter, speak to someone in person & tell them how you feel about them. Write or speak to a friend, a lover, a family member or for something different write yourself a letter saying everything you love about yourself & open it in a years time.


HOW TO WRITE A LOVE LETTER

A few tips on how to hand write a love letter this Valentine's Day.

Tip #1:
Write your letter on some nice stationary that may suit the person you are writing to. 

Tip #2: Find a quiet, peaceful place to write the letter so you think about all the things you want to include in your letter. You could also write a list of the things you want to express in your letter so you have them in front of you.

Tip #3: The basis of your letter should include reasons why you love the person you are writing to, what makes them so wonderful to you & why you appreciate them. You could bring up when you first felt love for this person, how they affected your life in some way or even a moment that reminds you of why you love them.

Tip #4: Don't be too concerned about what your handwriting looks like if you haven't put pen to paper in a while just remember It's all about the meaning of your words. If you need to write a practice letter or two thats okay too.

Tip #5: Most importantly don't be afraid to write about how you really feel. You want your letter to be meaningful, real & from your heart.

"LOVE IS MORE THAN THREE WORDS MUMBLED
BEFORE BEDTIME. LOVE IS SUSTAINED BY ACTION, A PATTERN OF DEVOTION IN THE THINGS WE DO FOR EACH OTHER EVERY DAY". – NICHOLAS SPARKS

TO ME LOVE CAN BE FELT, HEARD & SEEN.. WE FEEL LOVE FROM A WARM HUG, WE HEAR IT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS "I LOVE YOU" AND WE SEE IT BEING SHARED AROUND EACH AND EVERY DAY BY PEOPLE, TAKING OUR PETS FOR A WALK IN THE PARK OR TAKING SOME TIME OUT TO DO SOMETHING FOR OURSELVES. LOVE IS A UNIVERSAL & BEAUTIFUL THING.. IT BRINGS US TOGETHER..WHETHER IT BE A RELATIONSHIP, A FRIENDSHIP, COMPANIONSHIP OR SELF LOVE.. LOVE IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES LIFE WORTHWHILE.


WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN TO YOU?


OKAY ENOUGH OF THE SOPPY STUFF FOR NOW! ONTO SOME FASHION..NOW I AM NOT GOING TO GO TOO FAR OFF TOPIC HERE AS IN THIS POST I AM SPEAKING ABOUT DATE NIGHT DRESSING. GETTING DRESSED FOR DATE NIGHT CAN SOMETIMES FEEL DAUNTING AS WE WANT TO LOOK OUR BEST WHETHER IT BE A FIRST DATE OR THE 50TH DATE, WE WANT TO FEEL OURSELVES, LOOK BEAUTIFUL & BE COMFORTABLE.

FOR ME ON DATE NIGHT I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT WHAT THE OCCASION IS SO I KNOW WHETHER IT IS A HEELS & DRESS KIND OF DATE OR IF IT'S A SANDALS AND SKIRT KIND OF DATE.. ONCE YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE & YOURSELF.. THERE IS NO NEED TO DRESS NOT LIKE YOURSELF AS GOING ON A DATE YOU WANT THEM TO GET TO KNOW THE REAL YOU! SO ALWAYS OPT FOR YOUR OWN STYLE & WEAR SOMETHING YOU KNOW YOU'LL FEEL GREAT IN.
