Ahh, the day after Valentine’s Day? Anyone have a love hangover? LOL
Lots of emotions run high, lots of love, lots of pressure for many to get the right gift, give the right gift, prepare or have the most romantic dinner at home or restaurant, you all know the drill. Former Valentines Day I have received beautiful gifts, expensive gifts, flowers of all types, romantic dinners the whole thing from some pretty wonderful men. But not this year. Yesterday, my furry Valentine, Pierre woke me up with a big paw in my face telling me it was time to get up and let him out.
Hmmm, very romantic indeed. I am not currently dating anyone but that did not diminish the day of love for me. In fact, I try to make every day a day of love even it isn’t romantic love. Sometimes it is not easy. I am not saying or trying to convey to you that ” oh my life is nothing but koala bears and lollipops” everyday because I am soooo metaphysically and spiritually evolved! ha ha. Nor, did I dream some psychic dream telling me when and where I am going to meet my forever man. Scratch that, man of the hour, day or month either of those three would be a good start for me!
What do I do everyday to make my day a love filled day? Well, I do wake up to that fuzzy cute face every morning and that makes me smile right away. Then I really try and keep in that positive energy flow by focusing my thoughts throughout the day on all things, people and places in my life, even the smallest things that make my life sweet and lovely. For example, I really don’t like my hour commute each way to and from work. Instead of focusing and bitching about that drive and its negative aspects I shift my thoughts and choose to think good things about it. Such as: I get to drive to work in an SUV that I LOVE! I love how luxurious and comfortable it is inside and to ride in and that it is beautiful outside with a powerful engine to move fast when needed or wanted! I also love that my long drive takes me through beautiful neighborhoods lined with trees, flowers, fountains in front of big beautiful homes and nice roads. And I love that the time it takes me to drive to work, lets me listen to my favorite music and or motivational cd’s that maybe otherwise I would not have the time. And before I know it I am at work, in a good mood.
No, I did not get flowers or perfume, or a romantic dinner or a mushy card yesterday from a significant handsome romantic man. But, I did get a card from my mom, (thanks mom) and I got to give my grandma a Valentine card in the morning before leaving for work, I got to wish many people at work a happy Valentines day while helping a few look fabulous for their special dates last night. And what was really cool about my Valentine’s Day yesterday was that it was really close to what my day is like everyday. I love and am grateful for the choice that I make to make my every day Valentines’ Day for me – no matter what.
