It’s a given logic that we want to make every moment special with our only one. But few are the days of the year that others think and feel of the unusual. Let me mention of birthdays, weddings, valentine’s day, and different kinds of parties ….do they ring a bell? Indeed! First, when we talk of people, it’s the same old story, everyone takes part to host and see his guests around. The presence of a relative, a colleague, and a friend are truly valued. Second, let’s consider the gift. Are you the type of person who usually meander through the mall, drop a posh shop, buy a thing that looks so dear and have it wrapped? Well, the process ends in just a nick of time and give it to your special someone. It’s hassle- free actually.
Celebrations……. have you thought of the most important among all? It may sound public but private in its real essence. It’s the only moment of the year when others are not invited as guests because it’s only meant for the two of you. It’s your anniversary.
Anniversary of a relationship is sometimes considered a common occurence. As the famous adage says, “Different strokes to different folks”, some people associate it with classy jewelries, fancy outfit, chic dinner, and pricey stuffs.
Your anniversary is actually a time to celebrate your love and bond together as it grows with time when love is shared for another year. A day to take back down memory lane and cherish.
Most women on this day dream of happy endings and knights/princes with white horses. It’s a phenomenon called fairytale syndrome. In contemporary days only few people appreciate the stories of Cinderella, works of Shakespeare, poems of the Blind Poets, etc. Why? Because to write even a letter or a simple note these days is taken for granted. With the comforts right at our feet, no one bothers to sit down, put some serious thought as to what message to convey to make it truly meaningful.
Be grateful for the cards, letters, and simple notes you receive from someone because they mean the words they put into writing…
