The Anti Valentine's Day Woman

Pin It
No, I'm not single.
Nor bitter.
Nor an anti-love person.
I'm a very happy in love,
soon to be wife,
to a man I've been in love with for over 7 years.
But, honestly, I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day.
Ever since I can remember, Valentine's Day was a day where the single were miserable or the committed were let down due to high expecations, or the pressure to outdue everyone was beyond exhausting.
Now, due to social media, it's become one day of bragging right...
who got the best flowers
who got the best jewelry
who has the sweetest hubby
So and and so forth...
It's just become so flat out unnecessary.
LOVE is not a competition people!
Why do we need one made up holiday to tell the person in your life how much you love them?
Shouldn't this be going on year round?
I digress...

However, that being said...
I think Valentine's Day could and should be used as a time to let the people you love most in the world just how important they are.

A simple
I love you...
you mean the world to me
or you're my life.

Or maybe
an extra long hug...
major cuddle time on the couch
or a long and classic teenage makeout sesh.

Because, let me tell you...
I'm very much looking forward to doing all 6 above with my future husband tonight!

I can't believe how much I've neglected my blog. Every time I find myself keeping up with it, I feel better. I've found putting my thoughts, inspirations, whatever it may be, out there...I have a sense of calmness...almost a de-clutter of my inner self. Unfortunately, when life gets chaotic, I feel that it's very easy to ignore myself and focus on everything else. The other unfortuante part is that when life does get crazy, the last thing I want to do is focus on yourself. And so the circle of internal struggle continues...
That being said, I'm making an effort to keep up with my blog again. I don't even know if anyone reads this, but ultimately I do it for me. It's my own piece of time I set aside for just me and my thoughts.

So, here I am....
