Valentines Day

Yes I am participating in a Boycott V-Day Challenge. I don't hate Valentines day... I hate the way that people treat this day. And I have to say my fellow women are the main to blame. To me the thought and meaning is what matters. But some women tend to think the amount of love they have is measured by the cost, amount, or size of certain things. So of course flowers, chocolates, stuffed animals, and the drumroll....... jewelry! Dude love is a simple yet complex thing, you don't need to make it any more confusing.

I don't have a man in my life right now. But I still just love the simple things. I have received one piece of jewelry and it was a complete surprise... it was because he wanted to, not because I wanted him to. Big difference. I am happy with simple joys.... just like thought to go into them. The thought always shows that you care, not a box of chocolates. I rather have a nice engraved silver band as a engagement ring. I don't need any stone to have him show how much he loves me.

So if today you are spending time with loved ones doing things you love.... then great! But if your sitting at home pissed because your man ordered lilys and not red roses... then you have issues. Relearn what love is.... your the ones I think about when this day comes around with all the commericals of chocolates and jewelry.
