To be honest, I’ve kind of been dreading this day. Turns out, I forgot it was Valentine’s Day for about the first half of it.
Then, I was so busy doing other stuff, I didn’t really care. But now, I’m sitting here, and I’m no longer trying to ignore the obvious. I’m single this Valentine’s Day.
I also don’t seem to care today! Yay!
I’ll say one thing about this roller-coaster moodiness I’ve been experiencing, sometimes the “Whatever” mood hits just perfectly and my whole week is saved!
I read this quote from C.S.Lewis awhile back, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since:
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” C.S. Lewis
Becoming bitter, angry, guarded is really the easy way out. I don’t want to miss out on all the really cool things about loving someone with your whole heart, just so I can miss what bad things may possibly happen.
In short, I’m no coward. :-)
Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Frankly, it wasn’t that bad!!
