Happy V-day

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”

~Judy Garland

It’s Valentine’s day, “heart’s day”, as someone I knew was calling it. I like to call it a V-day. It happens that for good or bad, this year I am not in love, at least not truly in love, not right now, not today.  My ex-boyfriend called last night at 12:05 a.m., to say Happy Valentine’s day, he said, he wanted to be the first to wish me about love and happiness.

What can I say? I didn’t expect it. Maybe the idea of me is still in his brain, maybe he still dreams about all our nights together, having conversations, giggling and in love. I sometimes remember these nights too, but in general trying to avoid going back to the past. I expressed my appreciation about the call, but made it very clear I have nothing to celebrate as love hasn’t been around me since we two followed separate ways and then the conversation ended up.

When I woke up in the morning and remembered the phone call, I realized how wrong I was. Of course I have a reason to celebrate! It might not be so obvious a reason, but I have and not only one, but million reasons. I can celebrate the existence of my heart, the courage and the sparkles of this tiny, invisible organ, hidden in my chest, which makes me feel so fully alive, which never leaves me alone or betrayed.

I can celebrate the love and the support of my family and friends, that I will always have, no matter what kind of day it is. I can celebrate the fact that even not in love today, I still believe in having a hope and I dream of a new love with someone who will know how to treasure and comfort me, who will appreciate all simple gifts of nature and my smile and my happiness will become a purpose of a life. I can today celebrate my faith in love and romance, which I honor every single day, not just on the 14th day of this month …because I know, love is what makes us go!

So dear all of you, in love or not, alone or with your other half, happy or heartbroken … honor love and its beauty and have faith, love is always around, not only today, you just need to let it in! Happy Valentine’s day!

Love& Hugs

    That was truly beautiful, Blaga. Allow me to wish you a Happy V-day and for all the happiness you can stand. For it is in every day that we are allowed on this earth that we are given a chance to love in so many different ways and to show it to so many different people.

    Love & Hugs to you, my sweet friend


    We meet and part in ways unfathomable
    reasons unknown ,moments divine
    In the end ,it all turns out to be fine
    leaving our heart etched with love lines.
    Happy V -day

    Love comes from within us… it’s a feeling that emanates from our heart – much like a dog chewing on a bone and drawing blood from its gums due to the hard chewing – the dog thinks the taste of the blood is coming from the bone, but it’s really coming from the dog itself. So it is with love, we experience our own love, which is really a tap into universal love, in another person and we think the love is due to them, when it is actually our own love awakened by that person. And as you say… love is available in many forms.

    Happy V-day!

    That is a lovely quote. And it’s wonderful that you ended up celebrating today :) Happy Valentine’s!

    Much wisdom in this, dear Blaga. I believe we can’t really love until we’ve learned to be alone with ourselves. And even when we are with someone, we are ultimately alone. Don’t mean to sound grim, but this is an (older) lady talking. :0)

    Bravo, Blaga. Some people never learn this lesson.

    Celebrate the gift of you for yourself … That is the best thing, something you will always have.

    Hugs and Happy Valentine’s day …

    Well, I see it is 4:35 a.m. Tuesday already by you. You will be getting up soon, having coffee, and Valentine’s Day will be over … But I hope love will spring eternal in your heart.

    Blessings of the day …

    Happy belated Valentine’s Day Blaga. I hope yours was wonderful and your words are very inspirational – as usual!

  12. Cherlyn Says:

    This was very beautiful :) And it is very true! A lot of people look at Valentine’s day and think it only has to be about “romantic” love, but some love is stronger than that, like the love between two friends, or family, and it’s great that you celebrated that!:)

    Beautiful, very well said! Love is around us everyday, our family and friends care for us a lot, we should appreciate that. Good to see that you had positive thoughts after all :)
