Happy Valentine’s Day to Everyone!
“Enjoy the special day celebrating life as a living, breathing, human being. No matter how screwed up things may seem, know that there are millions of others who’d love to trade places and to have your problems. That is something I have to remind myself of when disgruntled because the world isn’t working according to Wayne.”
The above quote comes from a previous post, two actually, because on February 13, 2019, I reposted the last Happy Valentine’s Day message that I sent out to my publisher in 2018 to post for me while still living in the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons. #Happy Valentine’s Day | STRAIGHT FROM THE PEN.
When I posted the other blogs and wished everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day, I would not have believed that on Valentine’s Day in 2021 that I would be single and without a Special Someone to spend precious time with, celebrating each day filled with gratitude for having her in my life.
Well, the world just won’t work according to Wayne on most days, and that is okay with me today, because even though things don’t always turn out the way I hoped, the main thing is that I have continued to do the right thing and have succeeded at doing many good things throughout my life.
I do feel blessed for having people in my life who love and care for me and who are always willing to help me to accomplish some of my goals.
Okay, maybe that’s not completely true because I still cannot get friends and loved ones to use links for Amazon.com from WonderfulThingsDone to begin their search for gifts or product so that I get paid a small commission as an Amazon affiliate, if they order within twenty-four hours. But if I was in serious need of something, I know that I can count on most of them to help if possible.
Before ending this blog, I must confess that I don’t have a Sweetheart by choice to a certain extent, as I have resisted the urge to get involved with quite a few women interested in me.
Right now I am focused on trying to become financially secure and have a long way to go. And even though some of the women interested in me could have helped in many respects, I feel that my love and attraction to someone would make it more difficult for me to stay focused on doing what I need to do to leave behind a legacy.
If I could get Google to pay me just one dollar for each of my magnificent photos and reviews (7.4 million views), I could retire and ride off into the sunset with that Special Someone I know awaits me. Pay Up Google!
I reckon I need to be grateful for being in a position to help others, and for being a free man, because I know of millions of others would love to trade places with me.
