February 14!

15 Feb

Well, did you all survive Valentine’s Day? 

Sure hope so!

Some people hate the day. To them it’s about failed expectations, it magnifies being alone and/or unhappy relationships. Or some say it’s just a Hallmark holiday to guilt us into parting with our money.

For me this could not be the furtherest from the truth.

I want to say it loud and say it often

I LOVE Valentine’s Day!

To me it’s not what I’m supposed to receive (the “perfect” gift), it’s not about the “perfect” romantic evening or anything else that has to do regarding “perfect” narcissism.

Rather, February 14 is about being:

Kinder

More forgiving 

To make someone else feel loved/special

Letting them know they truly matter to you

To invite friends to come together and laugh

It’s about the beautiful opportunity to focus on others.

And personally….I find nothing wrong with a day that gives people so many wonderful and amazing oppotunities…

AND the icing on the cake, is to smile, look someone in the eye, and say…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

On February 14, you can have your cake and eat it too!
