I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in 2015.
I would just like to take some time to say ‘Thank you.’ Thank you for sticking with me, thank you for reading, for your comments and your support. I am so so grateful for each and every one of you, you will never know what you mean to me!
I wanted to share this song with you today. It has been one of my favourites since I was a little girl, and my cousin had a keyboard guitar thing that played this.
Last year this song felt very real to me, for obvious reasons the lyrics struck a chord and it may have brought tears to me a few times. It was my go to song when I needed a good cry. However, this year it has also been my go to song for a completely different reason.
“Last Christmas I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away”
Giving over your heart to someone is a big deal. Receiving someone heart is an honor and it should not been so carelessly disregarded and thrown away (yes, I am talking from personal experience.)
Having been heart broken I know how scary it is to give your heart again, but to all of you who have been broken hearted I want to encourage you to try again. Don’t give up on love. It is out there, and when the time is right you will find it. I know that isn’t an easy thing to hear, especially at this time of year, but it will happen when it is mean to. I strongly believe that.
However, your heart is an important thing. Don’t give it to anyone who is not deserving, don’t be in a rush to give it to the first person who comes into your life. Again, I know this is easier said than done, but I want to encourage you all to know your worth. You matter. Your heart matters. Don’t give it to someone who doesn’t deserve it. Hold onto it and nurture it yourself until you find that person, and only then give them everything. Fall in love and enjoy the ride.
And to those of you lucky devils that have already found your someone special (no, I am not green with envy!) this Christmas spare a few moments to remember how truly lucky you are. To have found love. To have someone who is keeping your heart safe for you, don’t take that for granted. So spare a moment, in between all the hustle, noise and materialism, to focus on the true message of Christmas… which is love!
