TO MY VALENTINE(S)….

TO MY VALENTINE(S)….

Back in the days when love meant a bunch of flowers(that I never got) or a chocolaty proposal (that never came my way) valentine was the day of sadness and disappointment. Then mammaaaa came to my rescue and said I’ll always be your valentine…

From there on the meaning of love began to change. The transition from a school girl’s fairytale definition of love to the purest form of love happened. |
Years passed by and God smiled at me yet again and sent ‘HIM’ in my life!  My Mr Not so perfect, he showed a new kind of love to me, the kind that makes me smile, the kind that annoys and irritates the hell out of me and I want to punch and hug him in the same breath, the kind that I didn’t know existed and most importantly the kind that made me forget the concept of stereotypes…

Today I have grown up to believe love is in the little things people do for you, the hidden care, the visible anger when you don’t look after yourself, the credits that you get even when you did nothing at all, the casual hugs, the stolen kisses and all of it with no expectations in return…

We often spend years, fighting, cribbing crying over the disappointment we feel when the fairytale love and romance don’t come our way, in the process what we overlook is the real love, real compassion and the real people who are the real heroes of our stories. Its saddening and disheartening that so many people don’t value the real gems of love in the quest to attain the material possessions. Gifts are important, flowers are important, diamonds, hell ya why not…but let them be the cherry on the cake and not the cake..

I’m writing this today to say ‘I love you and I would be nothing without you’ to each person who stands by me when I lose faith in myself and my journey…

This Valentine day, take a moment to bring a smile on each person’s face who brought love, strength, depth and meaning in your life in some form or the other and give them their special valentine experience, the true VALENTINE!!!!
