3 Things They Don’t Tell You About The Days After Valentine’s Day
  1. Disappointment is Inevitable:  Ladies, I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but there are a multitude of ways that we potentially disappoint ourselves the day after the holiday of “love.” We’re either irritated by the fact that the girl in the adjacent cubicle for some reason refuses to take that giant bouquet of flowers home (the ones that her boyfriend hand-delivered as though he himself has no job -_-), or we’re sad that our significant other isn’t acting exactly as he did yesterday, or we’re irritated that he or she didn’t get yesterday right, or we have no significant other, and we’re chastising ourselves for where we are in our lives. Here’s what they don’t tell you: Everything is exactly as it should be. Valentine’s day is a holiday perpetuated to provide bumps in consumerism. It’s great as a reminder of love. But honestly, the type of love you have inside, the type of love you desire from another, it should be strong and sustainable … it has very little to do with a 24-hour period.
  2. Whatever You Gave Yourself Yesterday … GIVE IT EVERY DAY: We have a way of only loving ourselves in action on days when government mandated holidays tell us it’s OK to do so. Why?  Do you want to relax every day?  Do you want to watch your favorite movie? Burn candles? Cuddle up with a book or the person you love?  Why aren’t you giving yourself a piece of that every day? Here’s what they don’t tell you: If you’re not allowing yourself a piece of what you love, a portion of what fulfills your spirit EVERY SINGLE DAY, you’re enabling your own burn out. You’re starving yourself and your spirit.  CUT IT OUT.
  3. Whatever You Gave Your Significant Other … GIVE IT EVERY DAY: The easiest way to build feelings of resentment or disappointment is by selling someone a dream you intend to jolt them from, or writing a check you don’t intend to cash, or, more simply, trickin’ when you ain’t got it … and don’t intend to get it.  WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU: It’s easy to be the best lover on Valentine’s Day. You’re a the most gangster of lovers when you’re the best every day. Here’s how to make that happen —> Only promise someone (whether it be love, money, emotional availability, etc) what you are willing to work to give them every day. And I say work because sometimes, it won’t be easy.  If they are worth it, whether it’s easy or not. You make the sacrifice to love them wholly and fully every day.

So with that said, I hope you bonitas and bonitos had a beautiful holiday … but more than that … I hope you have a beautiful every day filled with SUPREME BLISS and INFINITE LOVE and LOVING.

In the meantime, BE YOUR OWN GIRLFRIEND,

kholi. <3.
