So obviously today should be an absolute crap day. First Valentine’s day that I’m on my own in 24 years. But more and more I have to ask – was I ever with somebody?
Anyway – I’ve decided not to dwell on romantic love today. I’ve got my most beautiful sexy little black number on, killer heels, make-up and big earrings. And I’m doing my utmost best to have a smile to go with this.
I’m struggling – my lower back has been giving me problems for about 4 months now – absolutely stress related – it has moved into my sciatic nerve and into my bum muscles – it hurts ALL the time. The stress has now also moved in my shoulders and neck so I can’t move without hurting. But that will also go away.
But today – today I’m celebrating all love except for romantic love. I’ve realised that other love is so much more important. So tonight I’m making dinner for my mom, Zoe and my friend E – my sister by choice and not by blood. So celebrating sibling love, parent love and child love and now that I think about it – I may just invite my brother and his kids as well. And lets not forget my dogs – where can you get bigger more unconditional love than that.
And it will be a great celebration.
Have a wonderful Valentines day – regardless if you are alone or lonely or surrounded by people that you love.
