Today Valentines day is a bit..more like a lot difficult.. as my life is transitioning and the person and the people who I love are not with me today.
For all the commercialism of this day and boy.. hallmark cards and any kind of chocolates, florists are smiling all the way to the bank, there are those of us where this day does have a meaning and there are those who go pffft!
Is there anyway to keep everyone happy?
Heck don't ask me, I'm the one who is sobbing to songs and reading mushy cards because there is something about sharing a love openly and being in a relationship that begs to be celebrated and lol I'm a romantic pure and simple.
I think I envy those who blow raspberries to this day as it must be a lot less stressful and yet I wonder!
I think that for Valentines day to have any kind of real meaning means having a good relationship with yourself, to appreciate those in your life that you love and to know in your heart that there are those who truly love and care about you.
Because I am a romantic and because there are those that I would love to be near to today, here are are some cards, quotes and songs ( be prepared, some of them will not be what you expect lol)
Regardless of what you choose to do enjoy the day and Have a happy Valentines day. Laugh, enjoy, share or do nothing, whatever it is..do it well!
If you live to a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you. – ~Winnie the Pooh
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever. – The Notebook
"You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip."
