life in all its glory

feeling content

on February 14, 2013

As we all know, it’s valentine’s day and I’m surprisingly okay with it. No, I don’t have a guy in my life. No, I don’t have a hot date tonight. 

Every year…I’m usually hating life on valentine’s day. I get into a major funk and become a ball of emotion with a “bitter betty” stamp on my forehead. I also always tell myself…maybe next year I’ll actually be with somebody and when that next year rolls around I’m disappointed in myself for spending another valentine’s day as a single woman. I’ve never had a valentine. I mean, a real valentine. I’ve hung out with my girl friends or gone out with one of my gay guy friends but never a real date. 

The past year (or so) has come with a lot of transformation. I’ve battled depression for a very long time but I made the commitment that I would make a very conscious decision to be more positive and to live a positive lifestyle. I cut a lot of people out of my life that needed to be cut out. It hasn’t been easy and I still have my “down in the dumps” kind of days but my general outlook on life is now pretty damn positive. 

Anyways, being single sucks sometimes but I’m not hating life today and that feels SO good to say. 

I feel like I’m going back to how I used to be. Just happy, bubbly and outgoing. Also, speed dating is happening tonight maybe that’s contributing to my non-depressing outlook on v-day. I’m not expecting to meet the man of my dreams but I’m looking forward to doing something out of my comfort zone. 

 

With that being said….HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Hope everyone has a fantastic day! 😀

    Yes! It’s always better when you’re happy with yourself. Other people should be more like seasoning, not a missing ingrediente 🙂

  4. Great attitude. I agree, being single isn’t so fun on days like today but at least we have our friends, family and awesome fellow bloggers to help get us through it!! Looking forward to hear how speed dating goes.

  5. I love the attitude! I hope you are having a blast right now speed dating!

    I decided to celebrate not having a partner to share it with. I bought a bottle of my favourite beer and I played on the XBox all night!
