February 14th

What a day.  I don’t know of many other days that, in themselves, cause such strong emotion in people.  I’ve seen people on cloud 9 because they have a significant other, or because that significant other got them the perfect present.  I’ve seen people sad because they’re lonely and for some reason the red and pink heart throw-up everywhere reminds them that that’s supposed to be a bad thing.  I’ve seen people angry because the boy or girl of their dreams didn’t do or say just the right thing to make the day “perfect”.  And, in my life, I’ve been all of these people.  Valentine’s Day used to be my favorite holiday.  It meant candy and stuffed animals and pink and love.  And that my birthday was only a week away.  It’s funny how things change as you grow up.

It’s not that I don’t appreciate Valentine’s Day.  I do.  I love that my 11 year old little brother calls me specially to tell me he loves me because his teacher told him that’s what today is all about.  I still love candy :).  I just love more that life is meant to be lived in love everyday.  Everyday in my life is focused on love, and how I can show that love to other people.  I hope that never changes, because every single person I love is worth my attention. Everyday, not just one day a year.  And for the record, money does not equal love.  What a stupid, silly concept.  Although the economy does appreciate your contribution 😉

And, in honor of love, here is my official “LOVE” playlist, straight out of my iTunes.  Some of them aren’t love songs at all.  Some of them remind of specific events, some remind me of when I got over it,  some remind me of you.
