Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is just as important to me as it is to you. I know what’s playing on your mind! “What will I wear?” “What shoes will go with my ensemble?” “Will accessories be a little too much?” “Do I tie my hair into a bun, braid or let it loose?” “What about makeup?”
Amidst all these questions that target your mind like missiles you are forgetting something really important!-ME!
You don’t realize that I want to be at my best too; I want to feel alive, soft and radiant. I want to make you look beautiful. I want you to win his heart. I want us to be celebrated. Why wouldn’t you put as much effort in making me feel good as you did while picking out that dress and those shoes? Am I not important to you?
I feel I am. I take a toll on myself but protect you. I fight pollution, stress and the ever-changing weather. These conditions make me dull, flaky, papery and rough; yet I never complain. You hydrate yourself with cool, thirst-quenching water every hour but seldom treat me to a nourishing moisturizing lotion. (Or never sometimes)
Don’t put me through this. I love you. Please take care of me. I’m a part of you. Replenish me every hour. Nurture me every day. And give me special care for special occasions. That’s all I need.
A special occasion like Valentine’s Day calls me to be extraordinary. But you don’t make me feel so.
D-Day has almost arrived. Please help me. I shall help you have the best Valentine’s ever.
I’m glad that at least some of you do take the effort to keep me soft & supple. I want to say thank you to those caring women! I am happy from within. I feel like celebrating. I feel like making it happen. I feel like conquering the world. So, let’s wear our hearts on our sleeves and make this Valentine’s Day a day to remember!
