love and a love heart written in the sand

Life Wouldn’t Be the Same Without You

Imagine if there was one person who wasn’t in your life anymore. Someone who shows you the true meaning of love. Can you think about how it would completely change everything? I can and it’s a thought that would make things unbearable if it ever happened. But it also came to me that, as much as I know what people and things mean to me, writing about them reveals just how much.

Thinking about the past, in a good way

Looking back is a big thing for me. This isn’t to dwell on sad times or the wrongdoings. When you think about it, every single mistake you think you’ve ever made, along with the things you could’ve done better, they have made you who you are. Looking back helps me to see how I’ve shaped and grown into the woman I am today. Every single decision no matter how big or small plays a huge part. Thinking about who’s been there along the way make it all the more important.

When they just get you

There’s no one other than Danny who gets me and can figure everything out right to the core when it comes to how I’m feeling. He’s also a pro at knowing what I can achieve and just how far we can make it together. Aside that he’s the most caring, generous and kind hearted person in my life. Every day he does something to show that he is each of those qualities and so much more.

You know when Lilo screams into her pillow after arguing with her sister? Well Danny is my pillow during all of the times I want to let my feelings out. He also gives the most amazing hugs when you want to say nothing at all. He is my everything all in one. And he shows me the best meaning of love.

Life wouldn’t be the same

I can’t imagine accomplishing half of the things I have without Danny by my side. And it’s not just that. Wondering where I would be without him in my life is very difficult to imagine. He says its something I’ll never have to face though. Some might say it’s soppy but if I didn’t get the chance to tell Danny I love him every day and vice versa or know just how much we mean to each other, loving someone wouldn’t be as meaningful.

Since the moment we became closer than friends, he changed my life forever.

Message of this short and sweet post: never take people for granted. Live for the small moments as well as the big ones. Be there for others as much as they are there for you. And don’t ever let go of the people who love you just as much as you love them.

Everyone has their own meaning of love and Daniel has shown me what mine means to me.

You’ve Got This, Together You Can Face Anything

Trust in whatever will be. Will it be everything you want? I think if you really know, you just know. But if not there’s always time to get back up again and fight for the things you do want. If someone has 100% given their heart to you and you trust them completely, your bond can only get stronger.

Exciting times can come with opinions, buts, what ifs etc.

You never know exactly what’s going to happen in the future. But being around the right people and thinking positively can make a huge difference. The energy can be so uplifting. But to be honest even if it’s only you and one other person, you can both make a great difference in each other’s lives.  If you have someone who you love unconditionally, show them your love every day. Even a simple reminder can make all of the difference.

You can constantly be annoyed at the little things that bug you from whoever in either of your lives. Or you can choose to put those annoyances aside and spend more time on the things that make you the happiest version of yourselves. Together is when you’re the happiest.

There’s someone in your life who you could never replace

Not that you would ever try anyway but just think about this for a minute. He has taken you on the biggest adventures, been the reasons behind most of the biggest smiles on your face, stood by you in all of your decisions and compliments every inch of you.

You’ve always thought he’s too nice. You tell him all of the time. But maybe you just have to accept that’s part of his nature. You’re loved by such a kind-hearted man. He never wants you to feel alone. And well, you never have to because he’s always there for you. Seeing you happy is what makes him happy.

The two of you have a different kind of love

It’s not about being perfect. It’s how you both devote yourselves to one another and want the best for each other, that makes it so special. From the tears he’s wiped from your eyes, being there through times you don’t even understand, to the many magical moments you’ve shared – listen to him when he says, “You never need to worry about a thing.”

Right now you’re both feeling something that you never have before.  A massive amount of excitement. You’re facing a huge commitment. But guess what? It isn’t scary and there’s no need to worry because it’s going to be amazing. You know why? Together you can face anything. You both deserve to go out there and find the greatest happiness there is. Give each other the best life you possibly can and always be there for each other as you always have been.

Be the best for each other

It doesn’t matter about what others have got, how they look or what they think of you, this is your lives. You think he hasn’t got everything he needs but he tells you that you’re more than he imagined he could ever have. You think the same about him too so quit it with that worrying head of yours and “keep your head up high” just as your mum has always told you to since being a little girl.

No amount of people who come in and out of your lives, new scenery or life adaptations can change a thing between the both of you. Together, you can face anything.

Looking Towards the Future Is Such an Exciting Thing

October will soon be coming to be an end. Once Halloween is over, Bonfire Night will soon be here and then before you know it, it’ll be Christmas. With preparations for the house kicking in, looking towards the future has never been so exciting.

Earlier me and Danny were talking about how we can wish the week away wishing it was Friday as soon as Monday arrives. We all wish for a longer weekend, right? It’s not so good to wish your life away but of course, it’s always nice to have things to look forward to.

We’re using small milestones to reach our goal of getting the house. The excitement is killing us inside but we want to wait until we’re further into the process so we know for sure that, without a doubt, it’s really happening.

While I’m on a positive trade of thought towards the future, there are a few things that have been on my mind recently.

I’m in one of the happiest places I’ve ever been

You know when you’re sat there thinking “I’m really happy where I am right now?” Well, that’s how it is at the moment. And it’s only going to get better. If we both keep working hard and stay motivated, the journey we’re sharing is going to become even more incredible.

The worrier I used to be doesn’t exist as half as much as it used to. Being yourself is the best way forward and having someone who loves every inch you inside and out, is my version of perfect. The reality is, he goes above and beyond everything I’ve ever dreamt of.

Having patience really does help

Sometimes you want things to happen right here and now. But looking towards the future is so much better, as you can see how worthwhile it really is. If everything happened exactly when you wanted it to, surely you’d run out of things to look forward to? I think it leads to more excitement when you’re closer to such an important event in your life.

Patience helps you to be healthier mentally. You’re not stressing about what’s to come. You simply live in the moment and know that time will take its course. Good things are coming, you have to keep believing that they will.

There’s no one else on earth I’d want to share my future with

I couldn’t be more sure about this one. He’s the one person I want to experience the same old things with and all of the new. Danny has taken me on the biggest journey of my life and it’s only going to get more amazing. How does he put up with my weird, random antics? We’re a right pair! Just the other day we were both in stitches in public and laughing together is one of my favourite things to do.

Count your lucky stars when you have someone and something to hold onto forever. Use each experience to go from strength to strength. Together, you can get everywhere you want to go regardless of what anybody else thinks.

What have you been feeling excited about recently as you’re looking towards the future?

The Moment You Start to Feel Like You Again

Do you have a period in your life where you wish you could feel like you again? Of course you do. That’s because we all do. It’s called being human. There are times where we feel like we might have stopped making an effort, or making the effort is what drains you.

Remember to not lose sight of the things that make you happy and make you feel your best.

How amazing is the feeling when you start to feel like you again?

Last weekend was the first time I’ve had my hair done in three months. I went for the full pamper – highlights, cut, blow dry and treatment. And wow I feel as if I look like me again! I couldn’t stop feeling my hair to feel how much healthier it was. I didn’t care if no one noticed because I felt amazing!

Maybe I’ll get round to painting my nails some time soon as I keep saying I will…

Back to the things I love

Today is the first time in two weeks that I’ve posted on Instagram. I usually have stock of photos ready to upload multiple times in the week. But I finally got around to editing a few this evening. And with Amsterdam coming up at the end of next month, there’s bound be loads more new travel shots coming your way.

And here I am writing a blog post. You hear of many people saying that they’re “neglecting” their blog. But in my eyes, I post when I have the right motivation to do so. I don’t believe the whole “bad blogger” thing.

Exciting things are happening

Very serious times now. No more nipping in that shop to see what cute top is on offer. It’s all about keeping extra money aside for our future. Me and Danny are finally hitting an exciting step in our lives. There are months to go but we can’t wait to make a house our home if all goes to plan. As Danny said the other night as he ran and kissed me good night, “Tasha… it’s happening!”

Anyone who knows me understands how long I’ve waited for it all the start happening. I’ve been buying kitchen utensils, bathroom furnishings, and new bedding for the past two years. Yeah we’ll see different sides to each other considering we’ll be living together but I don’t doubt for one minute that we’ll ever grow to hate each other.

Being happy in the moment and looking forwards the future

I’ve learnt to ignore anyone’s comments that are nothing but positive. The future will be amazing because we’re going to make it amazing, having each other, just as we always have. We have worked so hard to head in this direction stepping closer to something we’ve dreamt of for years. No one is going to change that.

Is there anything that’s happened recently to make you feel like you again? Have you got any exciting news? Tell me in the comments below.

Valentine’s Edition: 20 Reasons I’m So Glad You’re Mine

You don’t need me to tell you that its Wednesday 14th February – Valentine’s Day. I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Oh here we go again. That day of the year where couples are devoting their love to one another.” Go back over 5 years ago, Valentine’s Day was just an ordinary day to me. I wasn’t one of those people who felt depressed because I was single on this one day of the year as well as the rest.

I never had a boyfriend, a date, a bouquet of flowers, a card etc. on Valentine’s Day. I wasn’t even one of those kids where their parents would write a card out for them. I probably wouldn’t have understood why if they ever did. So what’s changed since?

As I’ve already told you, I remember the first time someone wished me a happy Valentine’s Day. And even more so, it was so special to me. It wasn’t a random kind of text message. It wasn’t just a “Aww thanks!” moment. Ever since me and Danny got together there have been so many things I wish could’ve happened. But we just have to be glad that we are where we are today and we made it happen through believing in each other and the love we have for one another.

Here’s why I’m so glad your mine, not just on Valentine’s Day but for the rest of our lives.

I know you’re someone I can count on

You’re my rock whenever I’m at my lowest or just need a little push

You see me in a way that nobody else does

We can’t argue – we prefer a bit of silence that lasts about half an hour

We tackle challenges together

You’re the easiest person to laugh and joke with, even if it is at me

You look at me like nobody else does

Whenever someone asks me about the future, you’re there

Because you make me happy in every single way

We get the chance to miss each other

And we also get the chance to feel excited

We look forward to things together

We want to help each other chase our dreams

We motivate each other, because we both want nothing but happiness for each other

The one person I always wanted, wants me to

If we made it to where we are today, we can make it anywhere

You can make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world

I know that I can confide it you with no need for embarrassment

I’ve got you and you’ve got me

There’s nowhere else on earth I’d rather be

It’s amazing to think that I didn’t think you’d want me for more than two weeks. But when I look back, you asked me several times about being in a relationship. To the compliment you paid me back in 2010 to the many, many more along the way, you’ve everything and more that I’ve ever dreamed of.

I’ll Love You Forever

What does love mean to you? It’s always nice to talk about love. The one that’s true. A wonderful, long-lasting feeling. Some people experience the kind where they’re hurt by the ones they love the most. But I like to think about the people who really love me too.

He’s my ‘kind of person’ because he’s like no other

The kind of people who accept me for me, are the people I want to be around. I also want to be the person who surrounds others in accepting who they are. The people close to me know certain things about me. But it takes a special kind of person to really know you. Do you know who that person is in your life?

If you’ve read my blog before, especially the love or relationships tag, you’ll probably know who that person is for me. You’ll have read about someone named Danny quite a fair bit! If you haven’t, once you do, you’ll probably get it. He creates all kinds of happiness for me. Especially when I’m feeling at my lowest.

The kind that can always put a smile on my face

Some people don’t see why certain people need to be unhappy. But it’s not that we need to be. Mainly, it’s because we care too much about the little things. Being with Danny has helped me grow into someone who needs to let go of certain things. He helps me to believe in myself like no one else can. We speak to each other on a level that sometimes only us might understand. But that’s for us and no one else to worry about.

Often he’s wondered if he’s a rubbish boyfriend whenever I’ve had something on my mind. He just wants all the worry in my mind to be taken away. But no matter how much things crawl back or new things that appear, he’s there throughout it all. And likewise, I’m there for him too.

To have someone when you achieve something is great. As with having someone there when you’re sad to comfort you, is even better. When that person is someone who you see in your life forever, makes it all the more great. Without a doubt, it’s something you’ve got to hold onto.

Because it’s a love forever

I want to hold onto him. He wouldn’t get rid of me very easily anyway!

I remember the beginning, well one chapter of the beginning. Those moments where we used to chill doing absolutely nothing. Just being with each other. It’s just as amazing now as it was then. Having that kind of someone tells me that my life is made. Through of life’s serious, silly, and whatever things may come our way, we’ve got each other.

There’s so much more to come our way. And when that starts to happen, these past years will be another chapter completed. Things will get better and our lives together will begin for real. Ah I can’t wait for the day where we have our own home. Picturing that day is what keeps us going as we aim towards that very moment.

Danny, you know it already, but I’ll love you forever.
