I was pretty upset about being called in to work all effing day, that I didn't appreciate anything that happened today. Then, a little seven-year-old girl who is the daughter of one of my customers made her dad go buy me a box of chocolates so that she could hand it to me and say, "Happy Valentine's Day!"
I put the little girl to the back of my head, and went about my day at work. It wasn't until I came home and realized that I was so busy spending the day being ungrateful, I forgot to be sweet to my boyfriend. I forgot about being how grateful that I am with such an awesome and wonderfully sweet man. I actually made him feel sad because of the way I was acting. It was then that I remembered this girl who took the time and went out of her way to be sweet to me, even though she doesn't know me at all! I just spent the last couple of hours crying to myself over my ungratefulness. I really need to keep myself in check from now on. Today was a day of me being a SUB (Straight Up Bitch). No more SUB days for me. I need to start appreciating the people in this world. Everyone. Because even people who barely know me at all, are wonderful enough to be sweet to me.
Holidays are essentially holy days. If I can't even appreciate the special days that are meant to stand out, how am I ever going to truly appreciate the normal days? How will I ever appreciate life???
This box of Ferrero Rochers will serve as a reminder to me that unnecessary kindness in strangers can sometimes be the most crucial.
There is still a little over an hour left of Valentine's Day. I'm going to finally go enjoy the dinner that my amazing boyfriend cooked for me.
