Girls would often say, “I’m not your typical girl…” But as for me, well I’m not really sure.
I am someone who thinks about romantic love on Valentine’s day. I want to feel love–the head over heels, lucky-i’m-in-love, joyful-happy love. But ever since I have known the meaning of this day, my valentine’s day has always been sad.
There were times that I was single, sometimes in a relationship, with celebration, without celebration. But no matter what status I was in, I was still sad on this day like something or someone is still missing.
I wanted love on valentine’s day but I never really celebrated it. Is that typical?
This valentine’s day, my thoughts linger on romantic love. I tried listening to love songs just because Feb 14 is coming. I also think about what I would want this valentine’s day. And I just realized what I want.
I want to feel like nothing is lacking in my life. I want to acknowledge the completeness I have in God. That with God in my life–I am joyous, complete, and happy with who I am. This time around, I want to feel happy this Valentine’s day–not with the typical kind of love that people seek on Valentine’s day but with the love that comes from the Lord.
