Aries: You’re trying to do so much in such little time, but darling take a breath it will be okay. Time is still time you can’t change it even if you waned to. Everyone’s fighting for something, but you’re fighting yourself. Don’t do that because everything will be alright in the end
Taurus: Love is tough, love is rare to find but when you find that special someone s/he’s going to be like finding a diamond on the street: unexpected, inconvenient, but something you will never let go of
Gemini: You’re scared about the future. You’re scared you’re not enough. BUT YOU ARE. BABY YOU ARE. Don’t try and be someone you’re not because you can only be the best version of yourself
Cancer: The past tends to hold onto you. You scream of high hopes and sweet dreams. It’s the best thing about you, but baby don’t let it hurt you. Keep moving forward because things that are meant to be will work out eventually. Work for what you want but don’t hurt yourself more than you have to
Leo: You’re busy getting your life together. You want to party and socialize but you life is taking a toll on you. Balance in your life is important. Make sure to cherish yourself and others equally. Even when life is tough, you got this. I believe in you
Virgo: School and work, school and work, that’s what your life revolves around. What’s a bath? You don’t know. How do your pamper yourself? No idea. Live a life that you want! Don’t be afraid to take risks. Nothing is a bad as it seems
Libra: You socialize and smile but on the inside you feel isolated and sad. Don’t surround yourself with negative people. People who are supposed to be in your life will be there. Not everyone and everything is permanent. Some are there simply to help you grow
Scorpio: You want things to work out but you’re scared! You’re not used to vulnerability, and you’re scared to let people see you for who you truly are. You’re wonderful and beautiful cutie, don’t let anyone else think otherwise
Sagittarius: You think that everyone is distancing themselves from you because you’re distant from them. All you want is to be loved. Don’t worry. You’re funny, and witty and the life of the party. People will love you as long as you tell them you love them too
Capricorn: You’re so confused all the time. People think you know what you’re doing but you’re so frustrated all the time. Don’t think about other peoples opinions because your life is yours so live it. Don’t worry about what others think
Aquarius: Do you ever feel like you’re ahead of your game but behind everyone else at the same time? You feel like you’re missing SOMETHING but you’re not sure what it is. What you’re missing is confidence babe! You’re doing great and you’re gonna keep doing great things i promise xo
Pisces: What you want to do seems so unattainable right now. You feel like no one supports you, not even yourself. Everything will work out as planned if you keep going though. Love is something you should fight for, not back away from even when it gets hard. You got this darling
Hey! I’m Izzy, I’ve been alive for 19 years and I live on an island called New Zealand. I’m a bit of a hippy, obsessed with the ocean and beware I’m a Scorpio. I’m looking for anybody across the world to have an amazing yarn with because handwritten letters are gorgeous things. I’m extremely open minded, lover of adventures and love listening to other peoples experiences in life. I love painting, writing and reading books. I study Event Management in Auckland and hope to work a conservation job saving the environment and animals when I graduate. I love the 1975, John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and G-Eazy is my husband. If you’re looking for a pen pal who sends Polaroids, drawings and random artwork then you’ve found the right girl!
Preferences: Anyone and everyone, spread the love!
Journaling is an incredibly powerful tool for many things, including self-love. It can be a daily practice you turn into a habit or ritual where you consistently build up your feelings of self-worth, esteem, and confidence. It’s an amazing feeling to have a notebook full of words that are generally positive about your mind, body, and life which can remind you of your awesomeness just by looking at it!
I made a list of different kinds of self-love writing prompts which can be used in any way you decide. You can answer them in a notebook, in an art journal, on a Word document, or in an Instagram caption. The possibilities for how you express your thoughts and feelings to these concepts and questions are endless, and I’m really excited at the thought of you using them!
Dear would be love,
Here’s a letter to you. The day you will enter my life maybe I’ll understand this four letter word ‘love’. What I can make out of this silly word is that maybe it is a habit that you practice for twenty one days and it gets difficult to remove or maybe it is just an abstract. Whatever it is or whatever I believe it is, doesn’t matter what matters is 'you’ and 'I’. Two proud words joined together to form 'us’. Together we have a different meaning and when drifted apart we have a different meaning. May I respect you, care for you and not suffocate you. May you do the same and not deceive me or your heart. May we still be a bit of 'you’ and 'I’ even when we are 'us’. May this 'us’ behold equal place in our heart as much as others. May our heart still be spatial. Unleashing each tiny fragment of our soul and true being, may we walk together through thick and thin, frost and warmth. May their be as much as fire in our bodies that can be extinguished if need be. May there be as much of 'you’ as there is 'I’. May this 'us’ never get selfish. Let us my love, present a toast to this beautiful two letter word 'us’.

I came out to my parents when I was 18 years old. I left a letter under my mother’s pillow, gave her a kiss goodbye and then embarked on my first tour ever. I remember sitting in the back of a van headed to the abyss of the open road, fearing for my life. Ever since, my time has been swept up by life on the road performing with my band as an openly gay front woman. At the time, I never realized how impactful something as simple as being my authentic self and true to my heart would be for thousands of others out there.
Over the past few years it’s been the most powerful and humbling experience to watch the PVRIS fanbase become such a safe place for people of the LGBTQ community. We have witnessed countless proposals, been a part of coming-outs, read hundreds of letters and have heard so many incredible stories. Thank you for all the love, support and courage you have all given to me to be myself on this journey thus far, and thank you for the love, support and courage you have given yourselves and others around you. I want nothing more than for you all to feel the utmost love and freedom in being yourselves. You are all exceptionally magic.
For Gay Pride Month, Billboard asked numerous pop culture luminaries to write ‘love letters’ to the LGBTQ community. Above, PVRIS’ lead singer Lynn Gunn shares hers.
not at all !! i believe you need to actually know a person for their strengths and weaknesses as well as their likes and dislikes bc honestly, if all you’ve got is some feelings going for you then how will any of it work??
romeo and juliet is one of my least favorite plays because of this topic, actually. did you know that romeo and juliet knew each other for only three days? they killed themselves over three days of ‘love’.
i have so many questions i want to ask you but just don’t know how. and because i know for a fact that my voice would break and tears would start streaming down my face if i were to ask you in person, i am writing you this letter. furthermore, i don’t think that you would even listen to me. these days you seem to be ignoring me as if i’m your worst enemy.
how? that would be my first question.
how was it so easy for you to go? to just leave me and not even look back.
why would you leave and why would you leave like that? no explanation. no real goodbye. nothing.
was it even real? what we had, i mean. was it? because i’ve been dreaming so much about you lately that it seems like i can’t tell what’s real and what’s not anymore.
love, i wish you didn’t shatter my heart. i wish you didn’t make all these promises just to break them. i wish that you could have been honest with me from the beginning. honest about your intentions and your feelings for me.
the last time we were standing in front of each other, looking into your brown eyes made my knees go weak and my heart beat faster. how can someone feel so much and the other just not? i guess i’ll never know because i tend to give people all of me. always. with you it was no different. i gave you all of me, made you my favourite person in this shitty world and hoped that i would be your favourite too.
but this is farewell, my love. i hope that a part of you never forgets me. no matter how important i really was to you. i hope that wherever life takes you, it takes you someplace happy. you deserve it, i’m sure of that.
I don’t get it.. everyone’s running around and burning through people in an attempt to find the, ‘right one.’ Why don’t people take the time to BE the, 'right one?’ The kind you yourself could fall in love with?
