It's Just Another Day

We're like peanut butter and jelly, ham and grits, biscuits and gravy. We're best friends. We have a relationship unlike most others and I think it's the years that we've had together that makes the difference. We're totally comfortable with each other. We have a way of arguing that I've been told is ridiculous, but it works for us......kinda like two kids trying to settle their differences opposed to two adults.

For the past couple of years, I've seen the flaws in my ways. The things that I do or don't do that don't ever get me the ultimate outcome I want. SO, I've worked hard to change part of my core, part of someone that I have always been, to be more adult about things. I've learned to shut up and not say everything that comes to mind. I've learned to listen to things I have no desire to listen to. I've learned to go with the flow more. I've learned to do things I have no earthly desire to do. There are times that slip, I'm only human (and a pretty irritated one at that!). It's been hard work, but I've done it. You do things like that for the person you intend to spend the rest of your life with.......because you love them.

Right?

It sucks when that's one sided. My Valentine's Day sucked. Can you tell? I, like so many others think Valentine's Day is a nothing more than a contrived day made up by retailers so they could push more Hallmark cards and more flowers, diamonds and chocolates. Lame. As lame as I think it is though, I'm tired of men saying "It's just another day". The men who have women in their lives and say that are just fuckin' lazy and self possessed. I don't ask for shit. I don't need flowers, diamonds or even a card, but seriously..... It's the same thing every year. Nothing.

How hard is it to think of something nice and out of the ordinary to do for the person you love just to really show them you love them. Sure, you can say "I love you" a thousand times a day, and even though you really mean it, it's words that are said more out of habit. It doesn't even need to be done on Valentine's Day....it could be ANY day, but when it's never, and the world is giving you a day to do, just fuckin' do it. How fuckin' hard is it? Quit thinking of just yourself......

I know it's stupid and girly, but really, I don't ask for much. Why can't you ever.......

It's just another day.
