With Valentine’s week in full swing, we can find a lot of people drunk high on love. I am not here to judge anyone but I honestly do not understand what’s not to like in this day.
The world could always use a little more love, after all who doesn’t loves love.
No matter how many times your heart has been broken before; love will find its way. It always had, it always will.
Too many people who know me well, tell me that I have a very idealistic picture portrayed of what love looks like and reality is often a bitch. Sure enough, I make my own castles and rule like a queen because even if my depiction of love is just a dream, I am at least happy; I’ve no nightmares to haunt.
So, whether or not, you’re romantically involved with anyone, I would love to see you falling in love with love. Who knows, the adorably fat cupid might cull you the best pick you could ever hope to have!
Now that we know what my thoughts are on Valentine’s Day and how strongly I resonate for love, it is no surprise that my joy knew no bounds when I heard about this fascinating activity where I was to pick a person to whom I could send a lunchbox with a love note!?!?!?!?
Seriously?!?!? I’ve been pinching myself ever since I read this.
I often tell that some of the best people I’ve met are the ones, I’ve never met.
The ones you meet daily, they can read it in your eyes, see it in your gestures, feel it in that one hug you give whenever you both meet, but then I’ve got
friends good friends extra good friends, I’ve never had the chance of meeting and unless our stars have something really glorious up their sleeve, our eyes may never meet eye to eye.
So, I chose the person I chose because sometimes, in a busy life, with a never ending work life, too much on your mind, it is tiny little gestures like these which end up bringing a smile and saying every single thing a live meeting would.
The guy I picked is tantalizingly shy! (I know the two adjectives do not really go with each other but trust me, when I say he takes being shy to another level which sometimes make me feel tantalizingly manly, which okay I am!)
So, Cheeni (I know, it’s Cheenu, but I shall call what I want )
This one is for you! (I know you’re busy aww-ing because like always, you do not know how to react- dumb as me)
I picked you up because
You’re you 🙂
We may never meet.
The clock is ticking a bit too fast.
I am the wackier of the two of us.
Friendship- a little less and a lot more!
I could perhaps write a lot more reasons, but it is not needed because sometimes choices are not made for a reason, but the reason is your choice!
I hope the food finds your tummy (which btw will grow an inch by the end of 2015) and the note finds your smile!
Talking of his favorite food, uhm this is what I know is your fave one.
Oreo. ( I love them more, esp thick Oreo shakes. )
Maggie (The only thing you know to cook, but you made omelet, I hate when you kill cute chicks 😦 )
There’s one more but I guess two works fine after all one of the two of us should stay thin!
I had a lot of fun writing this as it makes me feel all mushy inside. The whole concept of sending over a love note in a lunch box has been used in the award winning movie
LUNCH BOX which you can catch up on &Pictures
They’ve woven a very beautiful story which makes an excellent watch. I am not a movie buff, but I am so infected with happy love that I am going to take a look very soon!
Regardless of where you are and how burnt or blossoming your heart is, share it with someone because sharing is caring and you always care for the ones you love, even when people are complete jerks ( Yes, you’re too!)
Valentine’s Day is more than being with someone who will be your husband/wife.
Love is not an emotion, it is who we are, what the heart is!
As long as you live, LOVE! You never know who might be dying to hear that one love filled poem made for them, that one glance which tells love happened, that one message that changes the meaning of the word!
Don’t have to date, love LOVE and love shall find you!
Did you get diabetic with all the sweetness I poured?
Catch ‘The Lunchbox’ Premiere on Valentine’s Day at 8 PM on &pictures
You’ll fall in love with love and life shall feel a lot less lonely and much prettier!
To all of you reading this, smiling, wondering, crying, recalling, dreaming,
A very happy Valentine’s day because someone told me
There’re all kinds of love and never the same love twice. Share love because Valentine’s day celebrates the spirit of love and does not marks the absence of a date 🙂
Here’s the note I sent over because poetry always cuts down the mile.
We haven’t met
But we felt
The tug of the bond
That will last so long
33 years down you shall say
Come what may
Every hiccup is another bend
Our middle outlived the end 🙂
For me, there is no bigger gift than being written for. Costlier than diamond because diamonds may rust/break; the imprints of a poem never fades!
And YES, I’m a girl and I shall still pick poem over sparkling jewels because memories stay, when people don’t.
As we were talking of gestures of love and gifts, I must add a special shoutout to Al Forbes because he sent me a birthday card, all the way from England and we do not really rank gifts, but trust me, the card means the world to me.. From continents apart, my birthday got a whole lot happier. Another shoutout to Lacie Jay who too sent me a birthday card, all the way from Florida.. it didn’t reach me 😦 because of my customs (ICKY CUSTOMS SERIOUSLY) but like we say, it is the gesture that counts, right? Finally, the third shoutout to Bhavya Kaushik for writing me a poem and the only co-authored story yet.
These are three people I’ve never met and yet some gestures last longer than diamonds; which, as the advertisements say, lasts forever!
Visit their blog, if you haven’t yet and you won’t be disappointed.
There’re too many names I could name because a bond is so much more than a present, but once in a while, we could make someone feel special with special shoutouts. Plan to do a lot more of them! After all, the world feeds on LOVE!
HAPPY V DAY
