At some point chivalry shifted from opening car doors for your dates, to sending a two letter text message: “Good Morning”. Women seem to swoon over this text, and say that there is nothing better than getting a good morning text, because that means that he is thinking of you as soon as he wakes up. It’s “so romantic”. Great. Somehow our romantic lives have become dependent on a text message. Well I say enough is enough. I want more.
I Want More Than a Good Morning Text
I want to come home from work to a surprise candlelit dinner.
I want forehead kisses.
I want sweet words to be whispered in my ear, as I drift into slumber.
I want to have my hand held – even when it’s sweaty.
I want “just because” gifts.
I want in-depth conversations about our lives.
I want to talk about the universe and fate, and everything in between.
I want to lay in the wet grass and stare up at the stars.
I want to fall asleep while watching the stars, and wake up beside you.
I want to get excited about books, and share them with you.
I want to hear “I saw this and thought of you”.
I want to feel warm and bubbly all of the time when I think of you – not just when I get a text from you.
Don’t Settle For The Games
Allow yourself the dignity and respect that you deserve, and walk away from relationships that no longer serve you. If somebody decides you aren’t worth the effort, then you need to walk away and never look back. Even if they have a temporary lapse in judgement, and think because they have you, they don’t have to try – walk away. You’re a goddess, and if somebody stops appreciating you, remember that somebody else will. At the very least, YOU should appreciate you, and the longer you stay in unhealthy relationships, the longer you spend diminishing a healthy relationship with yourself. Demand respect from those you are in a relationship with – even if that means with yourself.
Manifest greatness. Set your intentions, and make sure they include “being happy”. Be happy, and don’t apologize for it. If anybody gets in the way of your ability to live your best life – tell them to step aside.
