“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.” ~Victor Hugo
I don’t have a problem with Valentine’s Day, I’ve just never been a huge fan of the day itself, but don’t go off on my just yet. I’m not really a huge fan of the day because I believe that expressions of love shouldn’t be reserved for just one day or two days in the year if you count Christmas when there are 363 other days to shower your significant other with gifts of love and adoration.
Here are 4 lessons in love we can learn from Holly…..
1.The grass always looks greener on the other side
Sometimes that ‘thing’ you’re looking for is right in front of your face. Every girl’s dream is to find a man that could give her everything she wants and Holly was no different. Don’t spend a lifetime looking for Mr Right who may be living just next door.
2. Find happiness in the little things
Don’t wait for something paramount to happen to claim your happiness. Happiness can be found in a kiss, having a croissant and coffee, or in my case indulging in some decadent Belgian Chocolate truffles with that special someone.
3. A gift doesn’t have to be expensive to be meaningful
Maybe you won’t get a gift from Tiffany or 100 roses for valentines but little things often mean a lot, especially when given from the heart.
4. You can’t run away from your problems
Holly refuses to take responsibility for and tries to avoid her problems but they eventually catch up with her and she’s forced to face them. Facing your problems and move on, you never get anywhere carrying additional baggage.
