Valentines weekend just passed and I hope all of you guys spent it well with your loved ones or friends. While my Instagram feed was flooded with so many Valentines themed posts, I didn’t dedicate a blog or social media post to Valentines Day this year. (Haha..) In fact, I was pretty much home all night in my jammies with my boyfriend Netflixing like it was any other night, but I was just so complacent of how far our relationship has come in the past 4 and a half years.
I’ve always been more of a person that celebrates love on a daily basis in the small things, rather than the grand gestures of love displayed on Valentine’s Day. The way everyone wants to be loved is different. I think it’s important to communicate what your emotional needs are in a relationship cause it really comes into play on how well your partner will know how you want to celebrate Valentines Day or be proposed. Whether in the small things vs. the grand gestures or intangible gifts vs. material gifts, find out how your partner wants to be cared for and what makes them happy.
For me, Valentines Day this year was a day of reflection. Although at some point your relationship feels like it stops growing with the person you’ve been with for a long time, you as individuals are constantly growing and changing. Having seen him blossom to become the person he is today, it feels like it’s been a journey experiencing our twenties together, tackling the same struggles and uncertainties and taking up on new challenges.
That will be the extent of my spiel about Valentines Day this year. 😛 On another random note, I’ll be attempting to reboot my YouTube Channel this year so stay tuned for that. I’ve always been pretty shy, but I’m starting to finally face my fear, which is why I would love to do some more video content for you guys.
