Advantage of Not Having a Valentine

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

When I was first single, Valentines Day was a celebration of self. I just felt so good to be unfettered, unattached, and did not feel a need to "belong" to someone. I still feel good about myself, and I do not feel that I am "incomplete" for not "belonging" to someone. The difference between then and now is only that I am actually willing to be in relationship should I meet the right person.

I do know that I am not doing much to meet another partner, but I'm not adamantly opposed to it as I was before. And I am in a much better place now, I am peaceful within myself. I've learned to think differently about many things (including food and men and relationships) than I have in the past. It's a good change.

Now I give my love to all those in my life, though there is no mate. I'm kind to everyone at work. I love my kids, my friends, my siblings. That is what being a Valentine is all about--showing love.

Happy Valentines Day, fellow Sparkers. May every day brighten for you with the glow of love.
