I am not big on celebrating Valentine’s Day. I scolded Shane the first year we were married and he brought home a rose from the City, knowing he was swindled for a romantic notion which ultimately angered me. Love is not flowers and buying in to cultural ideals. Love is something we create and cultivate with special people in our lives. Love can look like so many things, and is unique to each connection we forge. I had a lovely and insightful conversation recently which has me looking at my life and all else with new light. My emotions begged a new line of sight. Amazing what perspective can do for human spirits. I feel empowered today by truth and by loves of all sorts. May this be a year of well-match forging in emotional health and genuine living.
