Make Time and Space to Love YOU

Happy Valentine’s week, friend.

This week I’m sharing three, beautiful pieces of writing that moved me, written by Bianca Sparacino, @rainbowsalt on Instagram. This week I hope you make time and space to love YOU.


This year, I hope you learn how to let go of everyone’s opinion of your life.

I hope you start to see, from a place that lives deep within you, that there is no universally correct way to life a life that is solely your own.

Every human being has different goals, has different concepts of what happiness looks like, has a different concept of what it truly means to be alive.

And because of that, people will judge you—the world will try to change you, but you must continue to move in your own direction, you must continue to go at your own pace, because if you allow for that to alter your path you’re going to end up living someone else’s life.

I hope you learn how to make your life your own.

I hope you learn how to make your time here something you are proud of.


This year, I hope you learn how to let go of a love that won’t love you back. I hope you learn how to let go of the stories you tell yourself, of the ways in which you have let all that has hurt you, all that has bruised your soul, convince you that you needed to settle for less than what your heart desired.

I hope you learn how to let go of the parts of yourself that make you feel like you are not worthy of the kind of love that teaches you, and hopes for you.

But above all else, I hope you learn how to let go of the idea that you cannot be this person for yourself.

You are your own safe place. Make your alone a beautiful place to be.


This year, I hope you learn how to let go of the idea that it’s too late. It is never too late to change your life. It is never too late to become the person you have always hoped you could be, or to love the way you have always wanted to love.

We often forget that we are not bound by our past. We don’t have to be who we were a year ago, we don’t have to make the same mistakes we did when we were younger; we can want different things, we can grow.

We have to believe that we are never too old, never too jaded, and never too broken to take our first steps towards change. We wake up every single day with the ability to start fresh—it is never too late to take advantage of that. It is never too late.


One more time for the people in the back…

People will judge you—the world will try to change you, but you must continue to move in your own direction, you must continue to go at your own pace, because if you allow for that to alter your path you’re going to end up living someone else’s life.

It is never too late to become the person you have always hoped you could be.
