Happy Valentine’s Day!
I didn’t want to use the normal greeting because well uhmmm it’s common. I have done a couple other Feb. 14 posts and I was running out of title ideas. Really an indication that I shouldn’t write about it anymore. Come @thecraigreeder for the best V-Day greeting ever!
Valentine’s Day is among a handful of days that highlight one’s relationship status. Even at work, we’re asked to dress our status. Green for Single. (Why green?!? Eco-friendly?) For most, it can be depressing. Not for me. Whatever is my status during this day, I always am happy.
How is that you might ask. It’s because I don’t think of Valentine’s day as just a day for romantic love. This day is about love. All types of love. And it can be celebrated in a lot more ways than what is commercially packaged. If one realizes this, then there is never a reason to feel anything but happy on this wonderful day. Love is all around. Let’s bask in it. :)
Sure, roses and chocolates and cards are sweet and make one feel giddy inside. But roses wilt, chocolates digested and cards can be torn. Lol. I am not bitter. Just being realistic.
So if you’re single and in a corner crying because you’re not on a date, don’t despair. Go out with your family. No family around? Ask your other single friends out and party. No single friends available? Love yourself. Treat yourself. Go out to the gym/spa, go shopping, do whatever it is that makes you happy on a normal day.
Valentine’s day is a good day to express your love and gratitude to all the people you love including oneself. Let’s take this opportunity to do that.
This is the perfect day to share this absolutely wonderful short by Disney. It’s probably been shared a million times but I still wanted to post it so when I grow old and read my past writings, I’ll be reminded of this gem.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aTLySbGoMX0]
