Let me save you my long apology for going MIA on the blog because it’s beginning to happen too often. Life happened and sincerely, I wish I could do better.
If you follow me on Instagram, You are probably aware I recently just moved and truly before moving, that was everything I could think of and work on. Getting a new home isn’t easy and cheap. Also, making it feel like “HOME” comes at a high cost both financially and mentally.
Valentine is fast approaching and I ask myself why I am already overwhelmed with all the reds and roses going on [Duhhh, I am also on that table]. I mean, can everyone chill for a minute. I, personally have a few questions to ask: Who even started Valentine’s day celebration, how did they decide on the colour red and why is it associated with love or February 14th? [
This is my first Valentine’s day celebration with the “status: In a relationship” in a long time, actually since 4/5 years ago and it’s great to know it will be celebrated with the same person from 4/5 years. Although, we are not in the same country or continent, so we won’t actually be “Celebrating”. Sincerely, I am not forced or bothered because I find Valentine’s day soooo cliche because love should be shown daily and you shouldn’t wait for a particular day to give your partner a significant gift to show how much you appreciate them.
Loving From A Distance: It wasn’t planned but somehow, I found myself in a long distance relationship. Guys, it is tough and sincerely, I don’t understand how people spend years apart from their other half. I keep telling myself this is the longest I will stay away from ‘Mr A’ in this life because life shouldn’t really be this tough, especially during this period when I feel like I am settled on my own, however, I still feel incomplete. Nevertheless, we will be seeing each other soon: count-down and I can’t keep my excitement because I know this long distance chronicle/struggle will vanish when we finally get-together. So, this year, we won’t be celebrating Valentine’s day/together. Rather than sending a long-love poem/letter/SMS, I think I will just send a long prayer to him straight from my heart. I personally believe there is power in praying for your partner or taking time out to pray for him/her cos their happiness and well-being will surely affect you too. So, that is my plan for Valentine’s day & that will be my gift to him this year! [+ We will both be at work anyways]
And please, if you are stepping out tomorrow, don’t be like this my “uncle and aunty” below [Wear other colours than red, if you can]:
