Make it count

Hello beautiful people ! How are y’all doing?
I hope your holiday preparations are going better than planned.

Since it’s Christmas season, watching some good old holiday movies is definitely a MUST. It’s become some sort of tradition to watch the Grinch, Elf, Love actually, The holiday etc etc..
But one movie truly never gets old… HOME ALONE. *the originals, 1 & 2 *
Yup, don’t argue me on this.

I’ve been watching this movie since forever, funny thing is, each and everytime i watch it, i laugh as if it was my very first time.

As a matter of fact, i watched Home alone 2 yesterday… it was a blast.
As i’m watching the movie, one scene actually caught my eye, and i was surprised for not noticing it before.

Here’s how it goes;

  • Bird Lady: I’m just afraid if I do trust someone, I’ll get my heart broken.
  • Kevin McCallister: I understand. I had a nice pair of Rollerblades. I was afraid to wreck them, so I kept them in a box. Do you know what happened? I outgrew them. I never wore them outside. Only in my room a few times.
  • Bird Lady: A person’s heart and feelings are very different than skates.
  • Kevin McCallister: They’re kind of the same thing. If you won’t use your heart, who cares if it gets broken? If you just keep it to yourself, maybe it’ll be like my Rollerblades. When you do decide to try it, it won’t be any good. You should take a chance. Got nothing to lose.
  • Bird Lady: Little truth in there somewhere.
  • Kevin McCallister: I think so. Your heart might still be broken, but it isn’t gone. If it was gone, you wouldn’t be so nice.

You see, i went through the same thing, i think we all have. We fall in love, REAL HARD, and maybe it doesn’t go so well… so you end up getting hurt. What do you do next? you decide to never open up to anyone ever again, you close your heart, and decide to keep it to yourself.

You pass by many great opportunities to fall in love again but you just don’t have the courage to go for it. Your faith in love is broken, and you don’t let anyone in to somehow try and fix it.

It might not be a lover, you might get your heartbroken by a close friend, a family member… the person doesn’t really matter, it’s the outcome.

But really, think about it. We spend the rest of our days in the dark, fearing to get out of our shell and give love another try. It becomes a part of us, we just don’t feel *love* again, we don’t *trust* again. While we’re avoiding loving and trusting others, from what i’ve noticed, we stop loving ourselves. We stop trusting our gut. We become so empty on the inside that it starts eating us alive.
Believe me, if we get stuck in this, it’ll become much harder to step out of our comfort zone, ( or at least this is what we decide to call it, COMFORT ZONE, where there is actually no comfort ) we become trapped.

Beautiful people, I know it’s scary to love again. Who in the world would want to get their heart broken? who desires to get hurt? NO ONE.
But it happens, as it does, we shouldn’t let it control us. We should learn to learn from the pain and the hurt and the suffering.
It’s okay to be sad, to grieve, to cry, to scream sometimes. But what truly matters is how we move on, how we hold on to what will makes us stronger and wiser to face our next challenges in life.

If you’re reading this and by any chance do you feel heartbroken, empty, hurt, unable to trust, devastated, sad…  This is the sign you’ve been waiting for to FINALLY face your fear. Face it. Don’t let your heart become a pair of rollerblades that you outgrow and end up not using! The world needs people who are capable of love. Love yourself first, love your bruised heart, and watch it become the greatest part of you.

The holidays are just around the corner, don’t spend them being *fake* happy. It would be such a waste, instead, tell yourself you ARE GOING TO ACTUALLY BE HAPPY. You’re going to gather the strength you have, and build it up so you come out of your shell. Spend the holidays with your loved ones, love and cherish them…

There’s nothing wrong in opening up again to the world, believe me… I suffered and i was able to take heart in this, trust me when i say; It’s been the greatest decision i made all year. Now, i’m surrounded with amazing people who love me right.

I hope you’re able to do the same and make the most of it!

Happy holidays my dearest ones.
