I saw this picture on the Post Secret app (back when Post Secret had an app) and it really resonated with me. I took a screen shot, set it as wallpaper on my phone, uploaded it to my Facebook, and even broke my "Why is your profile picture not of YOU?" rule and set it as my profile pic for a while.
And today, on Valentine's Day, I really realize how true this is. My heart is full. It is. I don't think I even knew how full it was until yesterday, but it really is. I have the best friends a girl could want (even better ones than when I've said that before), a family that loves me (and makes me laugh) and a life that somewhere out there, someone is envying.
I'm happier than I have been in a while (exponentially happier than I was this time last year) and I have learned more about myself in the last year than maybe in the previous 30+ combined. I know what I want and what I don't want. And I am okay if I find it or if I don't.
So my big Valentines plans are to watch the Princess Bride with Andi (who by the way has never seen it--how is that possible!?!).
Those of you who find yourself with a valentine this year, don't feel sorry for me, because there's no reason to (and because it will piss me off faster than basically anything else).
And don't waste your time telling me it's going to be okay, because it already is.
My ring finger may be empty, but my heart is not. Love comes in all forms.
