Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I don’t really have any special V-Day plans but I did receive flowers from the guy that I am seeing. They are beautiful but I was disappointed that I didn’t receive the extra “bang” with them. I wasn’t sure why but then when I spoke to my dad about it he knew exactly what the problem was….I didn’t hear the words “I love you”. Didn’t read them either although the card that came with them said “Love ______” it’s not the same. I wanted the romantic fairy tale ending like I see in all my favorite movie(especially the Disney ones) but my father asked me why I was looking for love from someone else when I should find it within.
I always say that the man is the icing on the cake and not the cake itself but I guess on Valentine’s Day, I wanted the strawberries and whipped cream on top. This is not to take away from the thought of the actual gift itself because I do appreciate it but the issue is that I have been looking for validation from outside sources when it should come from within.
When I am disappointed, I can’t place total blame on the other party, I have to acknowledge my role and handle things. Most importantly. I have to be honest with myself and what I want out of life….and be thankful for the little things….like beautiful roses:)
