On Valentine’s Day, there seemed to be a lot of drama.
The prevalent dressing turned out to be fairly more colorful than usual.
Most had a touch of red while others were simply at their best.
Amusement parks and malls were crowded, yet it was noticeable that majority were in pairs.
Most quiet corners and paths seem to have one or two couples clinging to each other like love birds.
In as much as I was a good observer, I didn’t want to end up being a spectator when I could be an actor.
I sent myself home to be by my wife and my lovely kids.
We couldn’t be together elsewhere because the younger of my Two kids was only Seven days old; obviously a new born requiring extra attention and care due to her fragility.
My wife on the other hand was still recuperating from the process of childbirth and couldn’t have been able to maneuver any outdoor activity requiring the prevalent costume or the pairing roles in quit corners.
We had to be ourselves and enjoy our moments together as responsible parents even though there was no other viable option considering the circumstances.
By the following day, there were videos of fights involving either struggle over a partner or an attack on a cheating partner that was caught.
There was so much on social media to amuse, excite, annoy, confuse and even enlighten surfers.
I began to ask questions like; why all the drama, who are we trying to impress?
The sad part is that a lot of people feel miserable or unfortunate when their circumstances don’t avail them the opportunity to play the prevalent pairing role.
What does not having a date today take way from you when you can have one tomorrow?
What harm will not hanging out do you when there are important tasks to handle?
Your own story may still be beautiful even though it is different from others.
Comparing yourself to others may only be robbing you of the opportunity to recognize your reasons to be grateful.
You need the best mindset and attitude to attain the highest heights.
Don’t settle for less by doing the common things that every other person is doing.
Be responsible in your own corner and be celebrated when the fruits are ripe.
