Valentine's Day 2018

     Hello Dear Readers,
On this day of love, I would have to say that more often than not my heart has been hardened. I usually hate this day, and oh let me tell you the ways...
-couples-of which I am still not one
-I viewed it as Singles Awareness Day-I'll explain more in a bit...
Okay so maybe that's why I hated it, wow, I thought I'd be able to come up with more...But yes, like the majority of you out there reading this the day I publish it, instead of spending time with that or those special someone/s in your life, I flat out hated the day.
     But this year is different. I have a blossoming social life, yet am still that same adorable introvert you all know and love, just with bursts of outgoing-ness goodness...I have friends that I see regularly, I get out more on my own, do what I want to do, I even Zumba when my poor, old, aging car does not have other plans for me. I recently even joined a missional community, to help my spiritual growth at my church, and also, be a better friend to people I know, and have more close ties in my life. I have taken some decent selfies of none other than yours truly. Through this I have seen that I can clean up quite nice, have social media creepers and while I am not a classic beauty, have been able to see my beauty through my own eyes, and have come to the realization that even though I may not be where I want to be physically, let's face it, I am one of the pretty people after all, that tries to generally be a kind person, if given the opportunity...And that will shut down those creepy followers on social media, and cherish the friendship and loved ones I have in my life. Yes, to the portion of you readers out there that make make up the people that I know in my life, this year, you are appreciated, and loved, by me, at least, and that, my friends, family, and readers, is truly all that matters.
     Now about this Singles Awareness Day bit...Yes, I've bought into it several times. What I realized is that the view of Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.) should not be seen as a detriment in your life, but rather a day to show your love to those friends and family in your life, a day for self-care, and yes, self-love. If you haven't found a special someone in your life, I haven't either, so know that you are not alone, you are never truly alone, if you have love for others in your life. Yes, S.A.D./Valentine's Day should be seen as a day of empowerment, created by the greeting card companies...Tee-hee...
