Chocolates, Flowers, Holidays & Proposals
“They do not love that do not show their love” by William Shakespeare
He could not have summed it up better, this modern type of love. I wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day to you and hope that you will surely make it one to remember.
Love needs to be expressed, it can not be suppressed.
When it remains in diaries or phone chats, that is where it will remain.
You need to say it out loud, you need to show it big and you need to feel it with each other.
Valentine’s Day should be the best day to express because for the shy ones, the busy ones, the pretenders, it is the time to get away with love. Make sure you shop in advance, for the chocolates, flowers and even a surprise getaway. Do not wait till the last minute, because the only thing that can save you then is to kiss like you mean it and is the last time you will ever be together.
Yes romance is beautiful, it does make the world go round so do the same for someone you are in love with you. Yes, she needs to hear you say, yes he needs you to accept. But wait what if?
Yes there will be what ifs, that is why the same day can be used to express love to others. Start off with your mum and dad or siblings, take time to take them out to make them feel extra special and leave all the family gossip for the car ride back home after dinner. Then move on to making it extra special for a colleague or more, if you are the boss, surprise your staff with a delicious lunch or actually cut a chocolate cake and share the love. If you are a school teacher, hug every child and make them feel special. If you are a doctor, take a rose for every patient of yours. If you are nobody then hug somebody but smile and make sure you keep expressing love for that one special day.
Why this one day? Well it is easy to join the hype and participate. It takes guts to enjoy love otherwise. You are always worried about the other person, society, your dog or boss. So be free you have the permission from cupid to be a cupid or be stung. It is worth the drama. Then you can go back to the boring daily life of sending smileys, love hearts and laughs that end up in the trash mail section. Nope, do not waste your love for a moment, you must use it all up on this day.
But do not fall victim to this type of situation:
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe
She may have been the most beautiful woman, but getting to know someone at their worst is the end of all. So if you are going to break up with someone, be gentle but make room for the best to come. St Valentine did not waste time in making time for love, so why should you.
Dedicate the day to the lonely hearts, because they deserve a moment of your attention, but hey just a moment. You are lonely only if you have no love to share, so stop being a Scrooge and just be like a Mama, unconditional love baby.
