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.


  1. Oh Wanda. This made me cry. I spent so many Valentine's Days alone before I met Spike after 28 years. I also spent some with a few guys who I thought loved me ...wrong. Just know that all of this that you are going through is going to change someday. Sometimes I think ( ..power..spirit whatever you refer to it as..) let's us have those painful days to make future love THAT much more appreciated when it happens next time with a super special person. You will look back and smile. I know you will. xo

  2. Wanda I have learnt to be careful of what you wish for.... I love my "Mikey' he is wonderful and loves me ssssooo much! With that being said his belief of Valentine's Day- Quote " The world's stupidest holiday" Unquote! The last 2 years I decided that Valentines does mean something to me so I have bought him a gift and I know not to expect anything in return( otherwise suspicion would be raised). I gloriously go through my day knowing to expect nothing in my world but I have a nice surprise for him! Why not spend this valentine's doing something special for youself- mmmm a pedicure?! massage?! what better than getting yourself something special?!

  3. Wandie, you know I am all about the unleashing, so I was happy to see your choice of words.

    Life is sad at times. But the thing is we need some sadness to truly appreciate the great things when they come along.

    I believe everyone has passion within them for so many things. You find the passion or it is exposed at whatever point in your life YOU alone are at. That is the true testament.

    Even if the fire is simmering all it takes is the right person, thing, or event to come along to feed that fire and make it burn hotter and brighter than ever before.

    It is NEVER selfish to find yourself. You have to be at peace and happy with yourself FIRST before you can share that with anyone else. Your time will come. And we will celebrate it when it does!
