An open letter to my mother

openlettermum-thelittleblackrose.png

Because you’re super amazing and I love you, like really.

Dear Mum,

Let me start by telling you that you’re the best mother in the whole world. Ever since I was little, you have been my role model and my mentor, never in my life have I seen someone as strong as you are. Mentally, physically, or emotionally. Honestly, I feel so proud when someone says I’m just like my mother, because there isn’t anyone else I’d rather be like.  I really do appreciate you even though I may not show it very often.

Thank you for always supporting my dreams and decisions, and for staying by my side through everything, whether it be good or bad. Thank you for making me the person I am today, without you I don’t know where I would be. Thank for for all the sacrifices you make to keep us happy, I understand that it isn’t easy. Thank you for working countless hours in a week just to provide for the four of us, we truly are blessed to have a mother like you. Thank you for the laughter and the smiles, all the lessons, and for loving me for who I am. Thank you for knowing when I was wrong and spanking me when I was being a brat. Of course I hated it then, but looking back I’m so grateful that you did.

Thank you for teaching me the importance of hard work, for making me independant, for passing down some of your best qualities. You’ve taught me to always stand up for myself, to never let anyone belittle me. I am a better person beacause of you. There’s nothing that I want more than to make you proud. Thank you for always being super amazing, and for accepting my friends instead of telling me I don’t need friends like someone had said.

I know I haven’t always been the best sport and that I’m not very good at communicating with you – or anyone – properly, I get angry very easily and argue on really silly things, and for that, I’m truly sorry. Sometimes I tend to lose sight of the things that are most important to me. You are so important, so special, you mean everything to me, and I don’t want to take you for granted. I’m sorry for always arguing, for not immediately listening when you ask me to do something, and for alwayss being lazy. Like extra lazy.

Lastly, I promise to try my best to change and to be a better (and more helpful) daughter. I want you to know that I (as well as the other three) will always be here for you no matter what. You need to know that we love you so so soo much, and we always will. You are our best friend, one we can always laugh or cry with, someone we can always count on.

I love you mommy.

Love, your eldest.

One of those nights

It feels like one of those nights where I have no will to do anything. Those nights where everything seems dull and I just want to sleep. You know, those kinda nights where I feel a little melancholy.

All I want and all I need right now is you.

It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry. 🙈 But I’m going to have to talk about myself anywayss. 😂 I know I know, I said I wouldn’t make Adele references anymore but I just haaad to because it fit in so perfectly there. Another thing, I’m superrr sorry for not posting consistently like I used to. I’ve been busy studying so I haven’t been able to post daily and in addition to that, I still have a massive writer’s block 😭

Hey peeps! 🐥 Soooo.. it’s 2016.. It doesn’t feel like it though, does it? It’s like you just blink and then boom! It’s a new yeaaar. 🎉 I wonder how many times I’ll accidentally write 2015 instead of 2016 in my notebooks..

How was last year for you guys? I know for a fact that it was a bit tough for us directioners, but we made it through and I couldn’t be prouder of us as a family ❤️ Keep smilinggg (like the smileys on my leggings 😂). Shout out to all of you directioners out there, love you guys.

Apart from that, I think 2015 was a pretty decent year for me compared to the previous ones and I know I’m going to make 2016 even better. This year is going to be amazing for all of us.

This year is a fresh start for everything, make it good. Start over. Create a new beginning.  Smile so much more than you did last year, I know you can. This is your story to be written. ❤️

Here are some of my new year’s resolutions:

  • Stress less
  • Treasure my treasures
  • Love more
  • Organize myself
  • Study harder
  • Eat cleaner
  • Spend more time with friends and family
  • Grow my blog
  • Live the life I want
  • Overcome a fear
  • Learn another language
  • Continue being Queen 👸🏼

Those are just a few, I’ve got moreee. So yeah, have a great year ahead!
