Don’t Spell Love…..Just Feel It!!!
Last night, as the clock struck 12’o clock …..My Husband wished me ,”Happy Valentine’s Day My Love”. I wished him back the same. He then looked at me and asked , “So where is my gift ???”. I told him, ” Hon…Aren’t I am your biggest gift??? I laughed and questioned him back. “You are and you will be always my biggest gift…par “Dil Toh Baccha Hain Ji “He replied back.
Valentine’s Day, The most controversial day of the year in my opinion. To brings happiness, warmth and love to some people and at the same time it brings sadness and feelings of loneliness to the others.
Love is NOT the highly commercialized circus we see on Valentines Day. It is much deeper and much profound than sending someone a dozen roses at hugely inflated prices. It is much more than candle light dinners and fancy chocolates.It seems we are madly glamouring for this special day of love, as if all it takes to prove and validate our love is just one day of being nice to our partner. It is amusing to see so many people rushing around to prove their true love for that “special” person in their life. But what happens when the roses have died and the chocolates have all been gobbled up ?
No doubt that love is the most amazing thing in our lives . It what makes life worth living. Nothing else truly matters. Love is much greater than what we feel romantically. Its that time of the year when the entire world is split into three different groups. I am sure that each of us has been a member of one of these three groups at a certain point of life. Each group deserves its own plan for V- Day.
Group A – People who are happy with their partners.
Their biggest problem now is how to come up with the most romantic plan for V Day or how to buy the best present. It is even more likely that they do not even have this problem because they match each other so perfectly that they have already planned the most amazing day of the year. They love each other and they do not need any artificial and material signs that will prove their feelings for each other. They are happy in their present state.
Group B – The couples who have lost the spark.
Valentine’s Day for them is the day that brings a lot of headaches. They are together but at the same time they are not really together. They have lost the initial spark that brought them together and now they are just two people living with each other. V Day is an occasion for them to apologize or to try to patch up their relationship. A lot of times this day brings only more misunderstandings because he forgot to buy flowers, he didn’t make reservations and all the restaurants have at least a 2-hour wait now. These couples need some help and creativity to make their Valentine’s Day a happy day by remembering those old days or may be grateful to your partner for little thing she or he does for you.
Group C – Singles.
Single people usually have two reactions to V – Day. The first one is “What is all the hype about? It is just a day that is not even a real holiday.” The second reaction is “I am so miserable and lonely. Nobody loves me and never will.” Even singles can have a great time on Valentine’s Day and they do not need to be sad this day. It’s all about love so all you can do is share some love for yourself or probably do something which you have been dreaming for very long time may be mini retreat or pamper yourself or cook amazing dinner for yourself. Forget about …..Valentine’s Day has been popularized just to spend money on flowers, cards, gifts etc. Just ignore them and think about how much money you are saving this year.
I happily belong to the first group and I am planning to stay there happily ever after. So what group do you belong to???
Whatever group you may be in always remember, Love is not meant to enjoy that one grand day in year its much more than that, it lies in small appreciating moments that we do for each other everyday.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Always Stay Happy and Blessed.
