Well it’s that wonderful day again, Valentine’s Day. It’s been a day like any other here. My partner and I love each other very much but we don’t really feel the need to have a special day for expressing it. I suppose it’s nice to have that one day where you’re shown appreciation but I think those things should happen every day. Doing things like making each other a coffee or scratching their back are very simple yet very intimate. I think these small things are what make up the every day of a relationship and it’s these things that are the glue to any relationship. When you’re upset or angry you should be able to count on your partner to move outside of that and provide what they can by way of comfort and joy. This is not to say that you can’t ever be at polar opposites of an issue and just can’t seem to find the middle ground but if you are still doing the small things for each other than the big stuff doesn’t seem quite so big.
My partner is fabulous. She is very nurturing and caring, yet also very down to earth and states what she thinks in no uncertain terms. There are things that we don’t agree on and when that happens it seems like it’s just a lot of work to get to a point where we can coexist in this melee of opinions. But then she’ll get me a glass of juice and I’ll put her favourite show on and the other stuff just melts away because we are where we belong. Together.
We are getting married this year. I am very much looking forward to celebrating the small things. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I wish you peace and connection with your loved ones.
