I sit on the soft a sandy beach alone with my thoughts, on this beautiful Valentine’s Day. knowing the journey I have been on has taken me to
extraordinary places in my life, I still feel a little lonely today. the couples walking hand in hand on the beach seem to be coming out in droves or am I just noticing them, because I don’t have any ones hand to hold?
They stop for a moment and give each other that loving kiss, that says, “I’m glad you are part of my life.”
I miss that. But I have come to realize I never had it to begin with; not really. I was the romantic one. I put together those special days those special nights. But my out-pouring love was not reciprocated. No one looked lovingly into my eyes and said, “I love you.” Oh yes, they wrote it in a card, but words are just words if there is no action behind them.
So… to be sitting on the beach alone in a place that’s not my home maybe isn’t so bad. I don’t have to feel the hurt from someone who doesn’t know how to appreciate and respond to my loving gestures.
So, I will sit here and enjoy the peacefulness of the waves as they go in and out attempting to touch me with their salty presence. The beauty and love I have found within myself is enough. Happy Valentines day to me and to all of you out there.
Keep hiking to the top,
Kimberley Rae 🙂
