For many, Valentine’s Day is a lovely day to celebrate their love for their partner. It is also a day that is filled with pressures: finding the right gift, going to the right restaurant, planning the perfect night.
For others, it is a reminder that they are once again single and they throw themselves a Pity Party.
NOT THIS GIRL!
I think Valentine’s Day is wonderful. I think the L-word is beautiful. Why not have a day that is all about the people you love and telling them that you care about them. Love is an incredible thing, if you have it, you’re lucky and you should know that!
That said, there are many kinds of love. Love for your friends, love for you partner, love for yourself, love for your pet, love for the world… really, love is a many splendid thing, love lifts us up where we belong – all you need is love.
This year, when a girlfriend suggested we stay in and watch romantic comedies, I declined and suggested something else. I’m taking myself on a date (well with others) – we’re going to look pretty, eat fondue and enjoy each others company. Recently I read a blog post that gave tips on revolutionizing your thoughts on Valentine’s Day that made me realize that I was in fact taking myself on a date. You should read it, she’ s pretty funny.
Anyway – Happy Valentine’s Day to ME!
I have a great life, filled with great people, a great job, a great cat and the best family a girl can ask for. All the other stuff, will just fall into place. This Valentine’s Day is about loving myself. Taking care of myself, appreciating myself and just being happy. It only took 29 years to get here, but GOD it feels good!
Hope you all treat yourself to a wonderful Valentine’s Day too!
