Let me premise this post by saying that if you are in a relationship this Valentine’s and celebrating with your love – good on you. I hope you have a lovely time because the message of this post is for everyone – including you love birds!
It is assumed that because Valentine’s day celebrates love, that it is a day for couples and couples only. This simply isn’t the case at all. Valentine’s is a day to show all of the people in your life that you love them. This includes friends, family, significant others, and pets – don’t forget about your furry loved ones! We tell our loved ones we love them all throughout the year, but Valentine’s is special day celebrate that love.
Valentine’s is also a day to celebrate the love you have for yourself. You shouldn’t set your worth on your relationship status on this one day of the year. Instead, you should take the time to remember all of the things you love about yourself and celebrate them. Do you love flowers and chocolate but you don’t have anyone to buy them for you? Heck – go out and treat yo self! Take a nice relaxing bubble bath and read that book you haven’t found the time to read. Snuggle up on the couch with some popcorn and binge watch your favourite show. Whatever you do, take advantage of this day to do something you love and do it just for you.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s and shows all their loved ones just how loved they truly are – especially themselves.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
