Oh Monday...I was hoping you'd be a snow day. We were supposed to get a lot of snow over the weekend, so I decided to stay at my apartment for the weekend, so traveling wouldn't be an issue. It did snow, but nearly as much it was supposed too. I had such a quiet and low key weekend but I could still use another day of rest and relaxation. I think I'm still recovering from my event 2 weeks ago; it was a 12+ hour work day and the end to my 70+ hour work week.
Even though today is not a snow day, I still have a short work week ahead of me; I have Friday off and next Monday is Family Day (another holiday). I don't have any plans for the long extra long weekend. I am hoping to be out of town for all of it, but no plans besides that.
I usually start the week with a quote for inspiration. Since Valentine's Day is on Saturday, I thought I would share two of my favourite quotes about love.
We all have at least one person who greatly influenced our lives. I've had a couple of people like this, but one person significantly changed who I was as a person and I know without them, I would be a completely different- not necessarily better- person. I know this person made me who I am today, changed my life and inspired me in the best way possible. We had our ups and downs, things weren't perfect...but they added so much to my life. Am I curious who I would be if I hadn't met them? Of course. But I'm happy who I am now, because I met them, and I wouldn't change that for the world.
There are few things better in the world than someone who loves and believes in you unconditionally. Again, we had our ups and downs, but I was cared for, loved and had someone who always, always, always believed in me. I fell in love for many reasons, but the way I was supported and cared for- despite what I was doing, how I was acting or what I was putting them through- was one of the main reasons I fell in love. That, and I knew I was loved when they drained my blister...if someone is willing to do something that gross for you, they must really care about you.
We all know that not all relationships are meant to last. We know that there are some loves that are only once in a lifetime. And we know that people fall in and out of love...things happen. But there is always that one person...the one who got away...the one who will always be 'unfinished business'...the one who is our forever love or our soul mate...the one person we can't let go of or forget about or, for some, move on from. Regardless of whether or not the relationships last, these are people who shaped us, who added value to our lives and who we made memories with. They are special people who will always hold a special place in our hearts.
"Words fall short every time I want to tell you how special you are to me, but all I can say is that my world is full of smiles whenever I think of you."
