So while working on what was supposed to be this week's story, I had to stop and slap myself. Out came a poem as a reminder. Almost every time I get in this mindset, I end up disappointed by what I thought I wanted. So much of our current culture, through social media, is infused with "look at me!" (she says just before she pushes this post out on it - gack!)
Still, writing the poem was cathartic. It was a good reminder that at the top of my Valentine's Day list should be remembering to love myself, and check that proverbial glass - remembering to note the part that is full, not just the other bit.
