Happy Valentine’s day! I wish you a day filled with love and happiness. Not just for today, but truly, every single day of your life!
You know for some people and maybe this was you at some point, we live a life of expectations. Many times we don’t even realize that’s what it is. We have this idea on how we think life should be from what the world shows us through movies, perfect social media posts, and the illusion of a perfect life.
It’s so easy to spend Valentine’s day wishing and having expectations that no one can truly live up to. It’s not about all the stuff, it’s about being loved and quite honestly, GIVING love.
I used to be one of those people that had all these expectations on what life was supposed to be like and did not realize that was unhealthy for me and my husband! I thought it was a way of life that the guy should do certain things.
But I married a guy that is not the crazy romantic type and heck neither am I. So what the hell was I conjuring up?
A disaster, that’s what!
Don’t get me wrong, we both love special tokens and do something special for each other on Valentine’s day, but it was the “he got me this and I thought I deserved that” kind of attitude.
The truth is, if I wanted something, I could go buy it myself.
The man I married is an amazing man that does so much those other 364 days, that Valentine’s day looks like a joke. We can’t sum up our entire year and life based on what happens or doesn’t happen on one particular day!
I had to be transformed 100% to become closer to the person God created me to be. To get rid of my little “worldly” mindset and step over to the other version of myself that was waiting. Full of wisdom, truth and light.
It wasn’t easy and I am always evolving. But the key here is this, don’t become jaded and start comparing your life to the social media film reel, but realize that in order to reach your potential in life, we must be transformed. And truthfully, some the hardest times in life to go through is when you are transitioning from one version of yourself into another.
Everything is okay and you were created to be great. But you were NOT created to dwell on what someone else is getting and what YOU are not. Let us truly LIVE each day of our life 💕
