I have decided this is my day, not 520 or 521, Chinese funny traditions that I liked as lots of other Chinese stuff. But this year I got no one that would accept love from me so those two days were useless. Or worse! Since as people always tell me, I do think too much.
So I decided that my day is, “paraphrasing” the Chinese, 525: wu er wu – wo ai wo, ie. I love myself. Not in that way, you yellow mind!!!
A day though to dedicate to yourself, and try to do something special for you, even if you are in a place you don’t like or doing a job you hate, or you cannot be with the person you miss and want the most.. try to find something good to enjoy, something that can make your day a little more positive than it would otherwise be.
It can be as easy and simple as enjoying a good sunset from your window:
I am traveling today from Norway back to the Netherlands after a good seminar with Roberto Martucci sensei in Stavanger. For tonight I decided just to fix myself a good dinner at home, maybe get a pizza and a couple of beers and from now to celebrate this day, but try to not forget my own value in every day life!
And do not set this value in reference to other people or to other people feelings. From my personal experience, you end up hurt! Just value yourself! I forget this quite often! When there are many other things I should forget..
