Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
Valentine’s Day has become one of the most commercial holidays around, but still despite that, I still enjoy seeing the love in the air. Men carrying flowers and chocolates home to their wives. Red hearts everywhere. I love all that.
It is the perfect excuse to think about old friends and reach out and say hi and I love you. I have done that. I reached out to some friends and wished them a great holiday!
I don’t have a Valentine tonight but still I am so happy and full of love. Life is beautiful! I have so many reason to be grateful!
My plan for tonight is to go get a massage, then have something exciting for dinner. Which I am not sure what that is yet, but it will be followed by something sweet.
D., the man I have written about before, the one that asked me to be patient while he untangles his life texted me today. Honestly I was not sure he would think of it. He doesn’t text often and doesn’t text long. He will send one or 2 texts every 2 or 3 days.
I am surprisingly okay with that. He mentioned wanting to go real slow. It is better this way, then to be bombarded with texts while he cannot really make any commitment. This is really different that what I am used to. It is worth a shot, specially since it doesn’t really require an investment from me. What have I got to lose?
Today he just wished me a Happy Valentine’s Day and said he is looking forward to seeing me soon. He also talked about the weather. He is not in town at the moment. He is on business trip on the West Coast. Perhaps he just doesn’t know how to make conversation lol
“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.” ― Bob Marley
I am still online dating, but decided not to have any dates tonight. I have a couple of dates scheduled for the weekend but I am seriously thinking about canceling. I am not that excited about either one, so it all seems like a waste of time fro them and for me.
Also, I am having yet another dental surgery tomorrow, so I will probably not feel like talking too much over the weekend. This is a repeat of the laser surgery I had done before. I thought it had worked, but the area didn’t improve and the x-rays actually say it is worst.
This time it will be even more painful as he will attempt to go even deeper and clean more the area around the implant. At least it will not be painful in my pockets as he offered to do this again for free. It is likely that it will not work again and that in 3 to 6 months I will have to go in cut one implant out and do a bone graph in the area in an attempt to save the other 2 implants attached to this troublesome one. But I need to do all I can to try to save this one implant before I give up on it.
Fingers crossed. I am asking you all to please send me angels and prayers. The surgery is scheduled for 12 pm NY time.
Thank you and until then love, love, love and say so!
I leave you with some great words to read and live by:
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
