Last year, Valentine’s day was absolutely shitty because my then boyfriend didn’t acknowledge the day at all. I put too much hope in someone who just disappointed me when all I wanted was “Happy Valentine’s Day”. But I also noticed that I only looked at Valentine’s day as being solely focused on romantic relationships. This year things were different. Things were better.
First and foremost, for me valentine’s day isn’t just a day to acknowledge romantic relationships anymore, but instead it’s an opportunity to remind everyone that holds significance in my life (friends, family, and special people) that I care about them.
Family – my mom was super cute this year and got me and my brothers cookies. She always does something small and that’s a tradition that I hope to carry on when the time comes. She also got a huge chocolate chip cookie that said “Happy Valentine’s Day” on it, but naturally I can’t find a picture of it at the moment. I know what you’re probably thinking, was it any good?! The answer: hell yes. delicious. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
Friends – From previous posts, you can tell that my friends are my absolute world. They keep me sane on a daily basis and are one of my main sources of happiness. This year, a few of them sent me super cute messages that ultimately made me smile and just think I love these people with my entire life. Needless to say, I have more than one valentine this year and I blame my friends for that
Someone special – The answer is no, I currently do not have a boyfriend. But I can say is that there is someone that makes my days that much better. I don’t need an extravagant VDay, all I ever really wanted is a form of acknowledgement. And guess what? He acknowledged me first thing this morning. Something as simple as “Happy Valentines day ❤️” made me the happiest person. To be honest, I wasn’t even expecting him to say that to me, to really say anything at all, but he did. And it made my entire day. We are going out again soon. I’m taking him to my favourite restaurant and I seriously can’t wait. Here comes a feeling I thought I had forgotten…happiness.
Overall, Valentines Day 2019 was a pretty good one for me. I hope that all of you were reminded that there are people that love you unconditionally. But more so, I hope you all recognize that we don’t need one single day throughout the whole year to remind those closest to us that we love and care for them. May you all have a fantastic rest of your valentines day!
