13 Feb Alone on Valentine’s Day
Tomorrow is February 14th! Yes, you know, the dreaded holiday in which unattached people like myself are reminded of our “singleness”. The day in which many of us tend to sit around moping and complaining about being “alone”. Even if we try not to think about it, we can’t avoid it since stores every where are stocked with the latest cupids and heart shaped chocolates as early as a month before, as a constant reminder of, dare I say it… Valentine’s Day!
Though some may claim that day doesn’t bother them, let’s be honest, it kind of does. At least I know I’ve been guilty of feeling like this, you know, the typical pity party of 1. However this time around, I’m glad to admit, I haven’t felt as bad about it. I guess time and life experience has taught me to see things in a different light. Instead of focusing on what I don’t have, I’ve learned to focus on the abundant blessings that fill my life. To be grateful instead of bitter, and enjoy the day with she who lightens up my world, my Valentine, my Isabella.
It’s really all about changing your perspective. I know I won’t be alone forever. I know “someday my prince will come”. Till then, I will enjoy this precious ME time and grow to be the woman I’m called to be. To focus on all the good and he who really loves me… my God.
For those fortunate enough to spend this day with a loved one, enjoy every minute of it and don’t take it for granted. And to the women out there… don’t forget to hook your man up, if you know what I mean.
