It’s the kick-off to Valentine’s Week, the week of leading up to the day of love all around the world! Yes, for some, it is a day driven by commercialism, but I’m such a romantic. I can’t help but love this day, so I, in my own way, celebrate all week long!
To get you in the mood of all things heart-shaped and rosy, I thought this week’s MMMM pick would be an upbeat love song. I chose Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are.” To me, love is accepting that person for who they are, and letting them know how you feel. This song does just that. This has to be my favourite verse from this song:
Oh you know, you know, you know
I’d never ask you to change
If perfect’s what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same
So don’t even bother asking if you look okay
You know I’ll say…
I just love this part of the song. Just the simple act of acceptance by a loved one, to me, is one of the most best feelings in the world.
This song also gives me that cheesy, fuzzy feeling and puts a smile on my face, which also helps me get into the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Finally, this song has a great beat, and it has me signing the lyrics, even after the song has finished playing!
I hope that “Just The Way You Are” gets you into the Valentine’s Day frame of mind this week, and has you in a good mood on this mundane Monday morning!
Until my next post, Readers!
