Valentine's Day Is For The Right Person

I was always an anti-Valentine’s Day advocate.

Valentine's Day Is For The Right Person

I was always an anti-Valentine’s Day advocate, but this was because I never had anyone to share it with. It was always “galantine’s day,” just me and my friends sharing our loneliness through dinner and drinks. We would go somewhere nice and make fun of all the couples. I loved it.

This year is a different story for me. This year I have finally found someone to share it with.

My views have completely changed, just by one person. A person who makes me excited about this stupid day to express how fond we are of each other. This came as a shock to me because I have always been the single friend, the third wheel, or the wing-woman. I have always though that this day was the stupidest holiday there is, but now I get it.

I have found myself scrolling through Pinterest, looking for the cutest, most gay shit I could find to craft for a boy. I have found myself stuck in the card section at Target, trying to pick the cheesiest, most perfect card I could find.

This year, Valentine’s Day is for me.

I am excited to share the share the day with someone I feel so strongly about. I am one of those annoying girls who is stressing about what to buy and even wrote my name down on the request-off form at work weeks ago to ensure our plans would not be ruined. Last year, if someone told me how next year’s Valentine’s Day would be like this, I would tell them they have lost their mind, no one would want to stick around for this avoided holiday.

I am now the girl who constantly talks about someone, even though I absolutely know that no one gives a shit. And the thing is, I don’t even care that they don’t give a shit, because I am so blinded by love that I will go on and on. It makes me fall harder knowing that he is planning things to surprise me with and is talking to his family about the perfect kind of flowers and candy to give me.

What I am getting at is, never think that you will always hate Valentine’s Day and that it will never be a big deal. Never think that even if you meet someone that it will be just another day, because now that I have found someone to share it with, and that has the best attitude about it, I am absolutely over excited about this overly advertised stupid holiday.

Yes, I am now a believer that Valentine’s Day is for true love and that it would not be the same if you shared it with someone who half-ass cared about you. If you share it with the right person, then you will definitely enjoy this day.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
