So this year I didn’t write a Valentine’s Day post. Not because I’m bitter, not because I actually have a Valentine, but because I’m kind of…well, nothing over it.
As it turns out this past year things have been up and down…because, well, that is life. I had a brief international fling, a ridiculously busy Christmas and a fairly relaxed January. Since glowing about how much I love unemployment, I have now found myself fully employed again and am running myself ragged to maintain all that I’ve taken on. Funny how that works, but finances run the world (even though Beyonce may have referenced ‘girls’) and time is once again at a premium.
Either way, I’m pretty okay with or without a Valentine. Two years ago I was just learning to be independent, last year I was knee deep in health scares and this year, well, I barely noticed it even came. I didn’t see many store fronts, am now chocolate-free, I’m happy for my taken friends and very few of my single ones are bitter or planning sad nights in. Single or taken, busy or relaxed, male or female, rich or poor…Valentine’s Day comes and goes and so we close the door on Valentines 2014.
But….I really do love those old vintage cards…and I really love this post by a fellow blogger. We are the same age, have the same poor spacial awareness and funnily enough sometimes pick the same titles for our blogs. www.jentalkstoomuch.com/2011/02/happy-valentines-day-to-me
I think not just this year, but every year, you should feel this way. Happy Valentines to you, your family, your friends, your pets and most importantly, YOU!
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. – Lucille Ball
