The month of love has come and gone but love is forever. February has been a great opportunity for everyone to get in touch with the people they love and make them feel special. It has been a fantastic month to celebrate friendship, romance and the amazing feeling of being single or whatever complications you’re in. And yet, all these celebrations of love shouldn’t end there!
Celebrating Valentines’ Day hasn’t been easy for me because Mix is far away in Doha. The least we could do is buy chocolate cakes and eat them separately, on a damn Facebook video call. I’m still grateful though.
We may not have been together physically last Valentines Day, but the spiritual ribbon that binds us together is still there. I’m grateful that despite the distance, we’re still keeping in touch and brightening up each others’ day, every single day.
Besides, the truth is we don’t regularly celebrate Valentines’ Day. Yikes.
I know, we’re weird. Not that we’re non-conformists or anything, but from the start of our relationship we sort of have this mentality that Valentines Day should be celebrated every day.
Like, why celebrate love on one day when we can celebrate it every day?
This way, not only will I stop torturing myself looking forward to having anything special happen on the 14th. I’ll also be on a special lookout for sweet surprises the whole year round. Not that I’m fond of surprises but, coming from him, it feels extra special.
