It’s a few days before Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. For some reason, I am not dreading VD the way I used to. In fact, I’m excited that there is so much love and ooey-gooey stuff in the stores. Perhaps it is because I’m feeling good these days.
Tomorrow night I’m giving a big speech at a gala and while I’m excited, I’m also nervous. I had all the finishing touches on my outfit, but couldn’t decide what bracelet to wear. So I stopped at the fabulous T.J. Maxx on my way home from work to check out their merchandise.
I wandered to the jewelry case and THE bracelet spoke to me. It said “love me, buy me, take me home.” And I did. It looks a lot shinier and fun in person than in the photo, but you get the gist.
The woman behind the jewelry counter took the bracelet to the register so I could pay for it when I was done shopping. I headed to the register and said, “There is a bracelet waiting for me.”
The cashier opened the box and said, “Are you buying this for yourself? It’s so fun!”
I responded, “Yes. If you don’t first love yourself, then no one else will love you. Or something cliche like that.”
She laughed and told me to enjoy my purchase.
I can’t wait to wear it!
