Valentine’s Day is almost here. Are you going to be the one sitting around waiting for roses to be delivered to your door or desk? I’m going to need you to stop looking and wishing. Darling, you’re already a rose!
So yes, it’s nice to receive roses. Roses are beautiful flowers that come in a variety of colors and have their own distinctive scent. There is a high demand for them every Valentines Day. Even bro from down the block is selling them out his car or slanging them on the busiest street corner in town! It’s really that serious!
It doesn’t matter if they are long stemmed or short, we want roses because they are the supposed international sign of love. We go as far as hanging them upside-down to dry. Place them in-between book pages. Or even frame them as if this will prove we are loved. It’s the truth that I’m am even guilty of! But baby guess what you’re already a rose. So why go through all of that to keep one?
Are You One Of Them?
I used to be that girl who looked on in awe as roses were delivered to the a co-worker after co-worker’s desk. Sitting there looking from the corner of my eye, hoping and wishing the next delivery would be to my desk or doorstep next. I know I’m not the only one! Each time the the delivery person walked by, my feelings would turn more and more sour. Then negative self-talk took over. Am I not worthy of such a gift? What’s wrong with me? Did I not leave enough hints? Doesn’t he know roses would make me feel special? The list of questions in my head grew longer and longer each year.
You Are A Rose
Listen, you are already a rose. Before negative feelings begin to pop up in your head, I am going to need to need you to start working on changing your way of thinking. The roses you wish for are already within. So try telling yourself this instead:
- God is love and He placed love in my heart before birth.
- I am one-of-kind and no one can duplicate this fabulousness.
- My life is a blessing to me, and those I allow to be in it.
- I woke up today. It’s God’s way of telling me I still have another day to blossom.
Darling You’re Already A Rose
