It’s that time of year in which everyone asks you: ‘what are your plans for Valentine’s?’
And I just want to reply in a grumpy mood: ‘staying home watching Netflix’… but I prefer replying the exact same thing with a smile on my face… it’s not their fault in the end of the day and there’s nothing they can do about it. I’m actually going to an Anti-Valentine’s Party… it’s the new trend around here!!
(I wonder why?!)
I have nothing against Valentine’s Day… I just think that you can make Valentine’s Day any given day and don’t need a specific reason to celebrate Love, whether it’s a beautiful gift, a vivid moment or an unforgettable experience.
As I said in some of my previous posts I do wonder why is it myself and most of my friends are single. Modesty aside, we are independent, smart and beautiful women (sorry to sound presumptuous here).
Although we are career driven, there’s enough space within to accommodate Prince Charming (or frog!)… He’s definitely taking his time!!
But on this particular post, instead of reiterating my Fears about being single (which you can find in ‘Is This It?’), I want to focus on my Hopes.
I made a decision of not looking for Love anymore and so far I’m being able to keep my promise (more effectively than The Diet promise, at least).
The fact that I’m no longer looking for it doesn’t mean I don’t believe in it anymore. I still Believe. And I do Want it. But it’s not going to happen just because I want to, so better to get used to that and deal with it.
If on one hand I lead a pretty normal life, on another hand I’m a daydreamer. And I dream of everything, including Mr. Prince Charming!
I dream of little things: chilling on the couch over popcorn and movies, cooking (whatever little I can! He’ll cook better than me!) and enjoying a glass of wine. Going to the beach, to the movies, to the park. I’m a simple but versatile girl. If he wants to surprise me with dinner at a super fancy place, by all means, go ahead. I can take it. Travelling, exploring new places: it can be the new burger joint or the new hottest spot in town, can be a new country! It can be anywhere!
And then I dream of the big things (check also ‘The One’)!
I do dream of the one who will see through me. With no fears. With no lies.
The one who will see fire in my eyes and passion in my soul.
But most importantly, he’ll be able to ignite them. And he’ll be able to handle it all.
The one who will grow with me, keep up with me and will allow me to keep up with him.
Above all, I hope for truth. I hope for connection. I hope for complicity. I hope for committed freedom.
On this Valentine’s I celebrate setting myself free from my Fears and embracing my Hopes&Dreams.
I celebrate the trust in Myself. I celebrate my Strength and my Spirit.
And I’ll celebrate it with a bunch of tough ladies with soft hearts.
