Can’t really think of a more appropriate title for this one and this hashtag ‘blessed’ whatnots has been in my news feed for some days now. Didn’t really get the hullabaloo for it but anyway, I guess this time, I really am. 🙂
This guy has a habit of surprising me with flowers for no special occasion. Even more, he has a habit of surprising me with sweet nothings during his low moments. So he came to my office yesterday after a job interview and was whining how bad a 1% commission could get; but he bought some chips I was secretly craving for (PMS) and a small, cutesy bouquet to which he proudly mentioned he personally chose the colors, flowers and arrangement. He was feeling down with his unsuccessful attempt (again) in finding a more decent job and channeled his feelings instead into buying something that he knew I would like (+ keeping in mind things that I am very particular about. Case in point: a floral bouquet). I do love flowers but never really asked anyone to buy me one. The mere thought of asking anything for my betterment is usually the last thing on my list because I felt the need to be independent and responsible for my own happiness. But one thing I learned from our 2-year relationship is that I should give my SO the chance to be responsible for me as I am with him. That I should not stop him from doing things (for me) that makes him feel good. That I should stop fighting the feeling of being guilty and uneasy whenever he surprises me with his thoughtfulness. That I should start being appreciative with his efforts instead. For all I know, some women out there would trade for anything just to be with a guy who will honor them for who they really are.
And finally, wait on the man who smacks your booty when he walks by, who hugs you for a full 60 seconds when you need him to, and who gives you amazing massages, even though you’re quite possibly the world’s worst masseuse and will never be able to repay him!!
If there’s anything I’m praying for, I hope this is really IT.
