I. Am. Passion.

As we approach Valentine's Day, I cringe.....there will be no flowers this year, no sappy "I Will Love You to the Depths of Eternity" cards, no chocolates, stuffed bears or other miscellaneous paraphernalia.  And it makes me sad.  This will be the first time in 17 years that I have not had someone to kiss and say "I love you" to.

But even though those years are gone, the passion still remains deep within me.  I am determined not to let my flame be extinguished.  I have so much love to give, it lives in my every pore.  Surely someday, I will find someone who will love me back the way that I DESERVE to be loved.

So for now until that day arrives, I am harnessing a different type of passion.  A passion for re-discovering myself.  Embracing what I have been dealt and moving forward.  Sometimes to do this, we must re-arrange our lives to be able to see more clearly.  I am looking out for myself now, and myself only.  It may seem selfish to some people, but if I don't do it, no one else will.  

So for those of you who have someone to love and hold on this upcoming Valentine's Day, unleash your passion.  Take a good look at the person in your life and appreciate them, because life is too short to not have passion it it.
