Today is a day both celebrated and hated, but most can agree that the opinions held regarding February 14th are anything but neutral. I woke up this morning feeling as if it were any other day--which, honestly, it is. I used to worship this holiday, wearing red and pink and obsessing over anything pink and sparkly--those of you who have followed this blog since the beginning remember that phase, unfortunately. Shortly after followed the period of romantic mourning where I publicly declared my disdain--I was miserably single and I wanted everyone to know it.
This morning, however, I woke up and said hello to another Tuesday. I would be lying if I said that I didn't have my moments, but at the end of the day, I'm happy. I can say that with absolute certainty. I am at a time in my life where I have finally achieved balance. I am surrounded by the people I love most. I am surrounded by love.
Saturday evening I got all dolled up with these wonderful people and ate dinner in the city, followed by a night of karaoke and laughter. To be honest, it was one of the greatest nights of my high school career thus far. I am in love with my friends, my future, my life. I am happy with who I have become and who I am growing into.
Today, I can say with confidence and absolute sincerity: Happy Valentine's Day, readers. I wish you love and happiness in all aspects of your life.
