Hmm today is a special day, what’s it called again? ‘V’ something, v-v-v-vvvv, ummm ahhhh, ohhh that’s right – VALENTINES DAY!
How do I know? Oh, you know, because it’s just everywhere!!
Bitter and twisted single cat lady? Nope. Actually quite the opposite in fact (minus the cat factor, which I have just inherited).
A handful of peeps in my immediate circle, along with many I am connected to on social media, including myself, are actually super duper happy flying solo this V Day, shrugging off the day with a roll of the eyes and “Meh. It’s just another day!”
When I asked them why/who/how/what most replied something along the lines of… “Well I just haven’t met that special someone yet”, “There’s no one that wows me right now”, “I haven’t met the one – they’re still out there…”.
And I freaken love that! How these people know that although they are not with anyone right now, that he or she is still out there AND that there is no point in settling if you haven’t found that special someone (all the flowers and chocolates and spinning restaurants in the world can’t make you love someone more if you’re not digging them already).
Yes I always loved the ‘surprise’ flowers at work, fancy dinner booking, usually followed by some form of bedroom-bandit action in the PM, but I tell you what:
The feeling of knowing in my heart that I am exactly where I ought to be right now and that I am not meant to be with anyone in this moment, outweighs those V-Day perks ten fold.
When the Universe wants to bring me my man, the Universe shall do so. I know he is out there; I have faith. And I also know that it’s gonna take a damn special man to pin this free spirit down. In fact I know I will be able to be my beautiful free spirit when I am with him. :):) That’s how I will know.
Meanwhile, however, I am on my own personal mission and I have things constantly unfolding all around me like further study in the sex field. My yoga workshops like Womenergy (see flyer below). Guest blogs. An online shop etc. I’m a busy chicken, and to be honest relationships absorb a substantial amount of energy. So when the time is right, the time is right.
Shower yourself with divine self love, found only from within. ~ Rosie
To the loved up couples – GO YOU WILD THINGS!! Kiss on the street and make everyone jealous. Pinch her bottom. Make him laugh. Flirt for Gods sake. Wear your red lippy & lingerie. Make love more than once tonight. Hire a babysitter ASAP. Tell your partner how much you adore them. Worship your other half. Put all the shit/fights/grudges to the side and forgive them. And remember that V-Day can be everyday. Hmm, perhaps not flowers and all as that could get expensive, but you know what I mean. Worship your significant other every day with compliments. Shower them with love. The honeymoon stage never has to end – it’s in your hands pal.
Singles. Be strong. You are exactly where you need to be right now. Fill yourself up with divine self love and know that you are love and you are loved. Be your own valentine – treat yourself. Pamper yourself. LOVE yourself. Go buy some flowers for your room or house. Have a glass of bubbles or Kabucha. Get a romcom and enjoy a day/night of self love.
Crushing? Tell them. Just tell them. Do it. This is your day, your moment, to let go of your inhibitions and take a risk, grow some balls, have courage. Put your name on it! Usually good things only come out of those situations anyway. Besides, what’s the worse thing that can happen? They can say no. Oh well. NEXT!!!!
And remember, I love you.
You are beautiful.
You are special, and totally supported and looked after.
Yours Rosie x
