Last Night

I have to say, yesterday was a really great day.

I was really worried that I was going to have a low day, what with it being Valentine’s Day and it being the first time in four years that I was single during it. I was concerned that I was going to have a set back. That I was going to get sappy, think about old times and reminisce over something i don’t want anymore. Because that’s what over-thinker’s do. We overanalyzed every little thing that we do even when we know we have made the right decision for once.

But yesterday wasn’t like that. I spent the day at work, which was surprisingly relaxed, and then I went out to dinner with some friends and we just talked and laughed for three hours straight. The best part was, we didn’t feel the need to document the night either. None of us reached for our phones to take pictures, to go on social media or even to answer a text we received. It was just us

It was a really good night.

Then I got home around 9:30, sat down and wrote some for my story and then just watched a rom-com with my grandma (that part sounds super lame but I don’t care). In case anyone was wondering we watched Someone Like You. Cute movie.

I’m still waiting for the moment I panic and send myself down a spiral of crazy, but for last night, it was really peaceful. And I am so beyond grateful for that. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday.

Until next time…

To Settle or To be Selfish?

Why is it that now a days people are settling in their lives? Why is that the common thing now? I mean, I know things have changed, things are very different from what they were before, but why do people give up on their dreams? If one dream isn’t attainable anymore, why don’t people search for a new one? Fear definitely plays a factor in all this. Convenience as well, it’s easier to settle for something you have then reach for something that you really want. I don’t want to wake up one morning and realize that I settled for something that just was convenient at the time. Instead I want to wake up and realize I have all that I have ever needed and fought for what I wanted. Continue reading “To Settle or To be Selfish?”
