‘Tomorrow is not promised.’
So I try my best to live each day with a heart full of love.
It’s not always easy to do that especially when we encounter negative situations or people. Sometimes, we just want to curl up in a ball under the covers and just stay there forever. I’m starting to learn that I should never let those negative experiences get me down for very long. I always get back up and seize the day because I know that life is too short.
I believe that everyone should show their love and appreciation for their loved ones every single day of the year instead of waiting to celebrate their love for them on special occasions. I don’t know why some people choose to save their loving sentiments for the people they care about for special days of the year instead of making an effort all the time.
Why wait for a day like Valentine’s day before you tell someone you love them?
Many people who have lost their loved ones have the same stories and regrets…
‘I didn’t get to show how much I love them.’
‘If only I could turn back time, I would let them know how much they mean to me.’
I never told them everything I wanted to say’
‘I wish I showered them with more love.’
These are only some of the regrets people have when they lose someone they love. This is why I believe that we shouldn’t wait to tell people how we really feel. I didn’t mean for this blog post to be a sad one. I just want to remind everyone about how special each day is. Everyday is a gift given to every one of us and so we must make the most of it.
I am truly grateful for every single day that my fiance and I get to share our love, care and support for each other; from the little things to the big things. We don’t really wait for special occasions to spoil each other. We spoil each other all the time and I think that every one should too! It doesn’t matter what your relationship status is; whether you’re single or not, I think that it’s great to spread as much love as possible because what could be greater than loving and feeling loved in return? When my fiance started planning our Valentine’s date this evening, we both realised that going on a dinner and cinema movie date with each other are things we do most of the time anyway so it felt like we had already run out of ideas on how to make this day special. We realised that it’s because we already try our best to make every single day that we spend together special. We even agreed on getting ourselves a box of 12 Krispy Kreme donuts instead of exchanging Valentine’s day cards. We realised that to share a box of amazing donuts while we reminisce and talk about our wonderful experiences is so much better (a little greedy, but so much better).
I do the same for my parents. I don’t wait for special occasions to spoil them and show them my love. As a family, we always make sure we send each other messages with lots of heart emojis <3 and I try to give my parents all the help that I can give all the time. I don’t wait for birthdays or Christmas days before I give them gifts. I give them gifts all throughout the year and I make sure that I make them feel my love at all times.
That’s what love is all about… being there for each other…no matter what the circumstances, no matter what time of year, no matter what happens. Love is about the small things we do to make our loved ones feel special every day of the year.
So don’t wait for Valentine’s day.
Spread the love now.
