Valentine’s Day. A day filled with heart shaped boxes, jewelry, chocolate, dreams, and expectations.
Some people may have been married on this day and celebrating a special occasion, others may have had their hearts broken, and others just may not relate at all. I used to have expectations for the day just like everyone else but over the years I’ve become tired of the commercialization that stores and television put on Valentine’s Day. It forces expectations on people instead of letting it happen naturally and spontaneously. It takes the unknown out of life and makes people have to react that is why I am more inclined to just have a quiet retreat and spend a day, other than Valentine’s with my husband somewhere. No frills, no candy, no hoopla- no expectations.
