Happy Valentine’s Day Friends!
(I recently started watching LOST again from the beginning and the Penny/Desmond story line remains my favorite.) So yeah, I woke up this morning expecting to feel at least a little bitter and sad, but surprisingly I’m pretty OK. Just because I’m not in a relationship currently, doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of people in my life that I can celebrate loving on this day. Sure if I take the time to think about the fact that I spent the V-Day holiday/President’s Day weekend out in WI last year looking at houses and putting offers on houses with my ex, it fucking sucks but that’s life. Life sometimes sucks.
Instead of dwelling on what I don’t have today, I’m choosing to focus on what I do have. I have awesome friends and family, which has really been made clear to me over the last 7 months, fun trips and vacations to look forward to, and the awesome possibility of falling in love again. Despite all the malfunctioning relationships in my life, the one’s I’ve been in and the one’s I’ve seen fail, I still believe in love, and can hope that it’s out there for me again.
Despite having no significant other, I do have a lovely date planned with my roommate. We’re going for manis/pedis tonight, and maybe stopping for an adult beverage or two. I’m also currently sitting in running clothes, so I may even take advantage of the warm temps today and hit the pavement for a bit.
So single or not, I hope you all take the time today to appreciate who you have in your life to love and who loves you!
