As I enter another Valentine's Day..as single gal I am in a weird place. I happily send or remark to friends Happy Valentines but inside I feel ..sad. I love everything about celebrating love, I know that this was created as just another way to make money off a day which initially honored a Catholic saint but I don't really care. Whats wrong with a day that celebrates the one that makes your heart sing, if your lucky. I think its lovely to send a note to the people you care about and say, hey bestie I am glad I know ya, love ya. We take the time to notice taxes, Presidents, why not the emotion that makes the world go around. It's also a marker of what is not present in your life. Whether its family, friends or that special someone you want to be entwined with.
When any part of of your love life is lacking, this holiday can really exacerbate those sensitive areas you would rather have untouched . If you are surrounded by people who are doing extremely well in all those areas of their life, it can either make you hopeful or homicidal with hateration. This is not a post of resolve but just the myriad of emotions this holiday can evoke for the single or attached individual. There are people who can hurt their union by not having the right present, no present or not enough verbal sentiment. There can be so much pressure to make this the best day, when its a day of acknowledgment but not necessarily magic. I do envy those with that special someone who will celebrate the wonderfulness of their significant other but no matter how things are in your life, there is nothing that can be the magical salve like a demonstration of love. Whoever and however it is expressed it takes the ordinary and makes a just a tad bit more extraordinary. For those who fortunate to be in the womb of love, enjoy and for the rest of others we will womb it up for ourselves. Happy Valentines!!!
