Today is a day of mixed emotions for a lot of people. Some dread Valentines Day and others live for it. I’m kind of in the middle. When I was growing up I used to think, every year, that it would my year. Someone would drop a card through the letterbox or leave me an anonymous gift. It happened once and it made my day/week/month.
However, as I’ve gotten older I’ve worked out that this one day of the year is completely unnecessary and has become as commercialised as any other peak marketing day of the year. I believe that you should express love to those closest to you every time you see or speak to them. I never hang up the phone to Mr B or my family without letting them know that I love them. I will even ring back if I don’t say it as it has become so important to me. Little acts of kindness should not be reserved for one day a year.
Don’t get me wrong….it’s lovely to get that extra little sign of affection on Valentines Day, but it is not something I have come to expect as I did as a younger woman. I love all of those close to me and appreciate them hugely, especially the ones I’ve had to fight to keep in my life. Maybe we should all stop being glum or expectant on this one day of the year and spend the rest of the year being nice and appreciative to those around you.
Sorry for the lecture and have an amazing day, whatever you choose to do with it. I’ll be posting some reviews soon.
Light and love, people. Mimi Cat xox
