Yes it’s cold. Deal with it!
A couple of weeks ago I felt warm, fuzzy, and full of love.
Valentine’s Day was a great opportunity to think about the people, places, and things that I love. Sure it was snowing again but this is New England so that is to be expected. Well guess what? My disposition, much like the weather, has changed for the worse.
Saturday is the first day of March and I have to say that I am sick of this weather. I am annoyed, fed up, done with the snow. Unfortunately, the snow is not done with me. I believe that we are expecting another storm in two days. I was listening to internet radio in Chicago, Illinois and they will have it worse. That is no solace to me and makes me feel bad for them.
I find myself wondering what happened to the kid that enjoyed snow and the young adult who thought that snow was so romantic? Oh, I know where she went…hey she’s older and wiser and having a harder time shoveling all of the snow!
So welcome to my world and indulge me in my negativity just this once. When Spring comes I will be very happy. March, 20, 2014- I am counting the days….
Wake me when it’s over!
Yes, it is that time of year again when we all think about love. For some of us there is much happiness, for others there may be sadness and pain.
I am on the side of happiness. I have had plenty of emotional pain in my life. I understand how that pain can be exacerbated during the week of Valentine’s Day. I remember the games and one-upsmenship that used to be played in my office: who got flowers, who’s flowers came first, who’s dating, etc. I finally got wise and understood that our commercial culture pushes those ideas so that we will buy things to make us feel better. Now I’m all about buying things if you can afford them and want to, but I don’t think that “things” are proof of love.
Once I realized that I can choose to control how I feel about this or any other holiday, I realized that I can also choose to enjoy or be upset. I choose happiness. First of all, I believe that I am loved by God. Secondly, I love God. Lastly, but no less important, I choose to love many people and I am loved by them!
So Valentine’s Day does not have to be about romantic love alone it can be about love. My God, my family and friends, my cats, birds, turtle, flowers, creativity, etc. There is much for me to love. Am I thinking about love? Always!
