Karen Milen on Valentine's


It's nearly that time of year again, Valentines Day. We tend to celebrate love as a fluttery emotion with roses and chocolates (which are always lovely to receive!) but if we really push ourselves to go deeper, we realise love is an action, we choose to love. I think we all have a responsibility to try and understand each other, myself included, I am definitely not perfect.

I find the world can be so overwhelming with all of its problems. Most of the problems we face will be dependent on where we live, who we are, what type of environment we were born into and how we deal with life. A person does not choose their initial circumstances, we simply just do our best do make them better and sometimes life throws curve balls that we could never have anticipated. We all have heart ache and worries, I think we all really just need to come together.

Valentines Day can be more than a money making opportunity for big businesses. It can be an opportunity to spread random acts of kindness and for us to consider the needs of the people around us. Could someone benefit from some support? What can we do this year to spread a little love? Can we make an effort with somebody who has been having a hard time? Could we arrange to do something with someone that has been feeling lonely? How can we show others how much we appreciate them? Sometime's it can be hard to know where to start but surely even little things can make a big difference?

Building real relationships requires each of us to open up and be vulnerable again. And if we are then met with acceptance even with our insecurities and imperfections, this is when we are fully encouraged and in an environment that I believe is best for our personal growth. To feel that acceptance is a wonderful thing, and a necessary thing. We all need to feel loved, it is not good for us to be lonely. When we give this love and in return receive this type of love, amazing things can happen. x

  14. You looked absolutely stunning in your Valentine's outfit. Your winged eyeliner and lipstick were both perfectly applied and looked gorgeous! That Karen Millen dress is beautiful and you looked amazing wearing it.
    Perhaps I should have read your post before Valentine's Day came and went. I spent it alone, but love what you wrote.
