I haven't had much time to reflect lately because the Spring season just seems to be so crazy. This is always the time of year when I feel like I don't have time to have a job, LOL! We've been on the go with baseball and camping and just all the things that come with life. I was thinking back on the last time I was actually able to relax and be at one with my thoughts and that was our recent girl's trip to Florida a few weeks back (seems like a too long ago now). I wrote about this trip in a separate post weeks ago but there was a part of that trip that just seemed to have earned a whole post on it's own.
The Villages, FL, the place where my girlfriends and I were often the very young ladies at each establishment we entered. It was quite entertaining to see the stares and reactions of the "locals" when we walked in. If you ever want to feel young and sexy again just visit The Villages, they sure do show their appreciation for it. ;)
One night while visiting, we made a pit stop via golf cart for a pre dinner cocktail. We headed straight up to the bar where we were planning to plant ourselves. Sitting alone at the end of the bar was a single man who admittedly didn't "have the strength in his heart to handle being approached by so many beautiful women", his words not mine. We took our party outside onto the patio once we got our desired beverages and after a few minutes we were pleasantly joined by the man from the bar. We learned quickly that his name was Kevin and that he very much wanted to buy us all the next round. Typically when a guy wants to buy you drinks you assume that it comes with ill intentions. Not Kevin though, Kevin stood there and gushed about his wife and how he is the luckiest man on the planet and how he hopes that our husbands appreciate us. It was clear that he absolutely adored her, worshipped her really, and it felt like relationship goals. It was so refreshing to hear a man just go on about the woman he loved and that he was a better man because of her.
Isn't this what we all want? To be adored, loved, gushed about and treated like the queens we are? I am fortunate enough to have someone who does appreciate me and love me a whole heck of a lot. I am not so sure he gushes about me though, not because he doesn't want to but just because that's just not him, he's way too modest to gush about anything honestly.
We all deserve to be treated like the queen that we are and to see our man's (or loved one's) eyes light up when we walk in the room or to be our greatest fans when we are accomplishing our goals. We all deserve to have that cheerleader who fully believes that we can do anything and who appreciates whole heartedly what we already do or have done.
Kevin left us that night with some words that truly resonated with life, words that pertain to not only our significant others, but all of those who we share our lives with. These words are what make Kevin unforgettable to us and what earned him a post in his name. He said so simply to us "if your world isn't worthy, then change your world." That's it, it's just that simple. Those basic and matter of fact words were actually very impactful and lasting to us. They were words we spoke about for the rest of our trip and words we still think about now that we are back to reality. "If your world isn't worthy, then change your world." YOU ARE WORTH IT!
