Day 127: Loving What Is

This is the first Valentine’s Day that my fiance and I have been able to spend together and I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the day.  Life always has a way of throwing curveballs when they are least expected and this morning, I got hit with a few big ones.  I think most women would agree that if they could choose one day a year to feel smokin’ hot, they would probably choose Valentines’ Day or an anniversary.  Now I am going to give you way too much information, but I would like to let it be known that life isn’t perfect…it never is, it’s how we handle the imperfections that make us who we are. 

This morning I woke up with horrible cramps, a pimple that could be mistaken for part of the Rockies and a feeling of sadness for a day meant to be romantic.  How can I turn on the romance when I feel like womanly induced crapola?  Oy, I had to get aboard the thought work train and FAST!  I chose to do everything today with intention.   By thinking through every small thing that I did, I made myself happy…even while putting clean sheets on a bed and scrubbing the floors.  After I cleaned the house, I spent some well deserved time on myself, including; an hour of yoga in my living room, a home manicure and pedicure, a facial mask made with honey and tea to calm my cramps.

Tonight I will make lobster and chocolate lava cake while I bask in happiness of just being with the one that I love.  Although it’s not the night I had planned, it’s quickly becoming what it is meant to be.   It’s not just about how smokin’ I can make myself appear.  It’s a day about love and companionship.  For that I am one happy, fulfilled, lucky woman.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!  I hope your day is cramp free and filled with an abundance of love, smiles and chocolate!
