The Day After the Break-up

The day after the break-up is usually the hardest.  You cried yourself to sleep the night before and woke up with a heavy heart and that disconnected feeling.  Like your head is somewhere else floating and you are trudging through your day barely making it.

Last night I broke up with my makeup and this break up was different.

Before the break up, I used look in the mirror almost disgusted picking apart the flaws and lines on my face and hoping that the concealer would cover those dark circles.

Today I felt rested and refreshed and happy about the fact that I did not have to hassle or stress about whether or not the concealer would work today.

It saved me time and I could see the sparkle in my eyes shining through.

You may have noticed that I have been talking a lot about relationships and break-ups lately.  No, I am not broken up and am thankfully and happily in an amazing relationship, but many of my friends are going through break-ups and heartbreak.

This year more than ever I have been reflecting on that one spring when I found love then experienced the most painful break-up and heartache ever.  There were times when I thought I would never recover, but as the heart-breaker himself once said, “time heals.”

That is not really fair of me to say.  Back then the break up was my idea and we mutually parted, but it did hurt like a mofo.  Do I regret that break up?  I did for years and years and cried so many tears, but now I don’t.  Now I am thankful that things happened the way they did because they brought me to today.

Besides, that break-up and my heartache and pain lead to the birth of this blog so I definitely would not change it and like I always love to say:

The sad times give us soul.


I like your smile
I like your vibe
I like your style
But that’s not why I love you

And I, I like the way
You’re such a star
But that’s not why I love you
Do you feel, do you feel me?
Do you feel what I feel, too?
Do you need, do you need me?
Do you need me?

You’re so beautiful
But that’s not why I love you
I’m not sure you know
That the reason I love you is you
Being you
Just you
Yeah the reason I love you is all that we’ve been through
And that’s why I love you

I just wanted to take some time to remind you that you are beautiful no matter what you are going through.  And if you are in the middle of a break-up or are trying to heal your heart, I feel you.  I am so sorry that you are going through this right now.

Hang in there.  It is okay to cry and feel your feelings.  Make sure you spend time with family, friends, and people who uplift and inspire you.  Once you have felt your feelings and taken some time to mourn don’t stay there.

Pour your heart and soul into your passions, interests, and bettering yourself.  Take this opportunity to reflect on what went well and what you want in the future.

Be Real. Be True. Be-YOU-tifully YOU.

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana xoxoxo
