I feel like I haven’t been on here in decades! So, I know yesterday was Valentine’s Day and love was in the air but I wanted to share my thoughts on that day. I feel like the thought of Valentine’s Day is very sweet. It is a day set aside for people to express their love for one another rather that being husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, parent/child, or just friends!
Like I said I love the idea but at the same time think that it is just another way to get people into stores and spend their money. Which can be a good thing as I will explain later. But back to my main point. There is 365 days in a year and only one day set aside to show love??? Um, No! That should not be the case. Everyday should be a day that you tell a love one that they are loved and show them that they are appreciated. It doesn’t have to be over the top like Valentine’s Day is but its the simple things that count. Telling someone thank you for making dinner, offering to help clean up, when you wash your car, wash your significant other car as well, tell them you love them, etc! Those are a few things that can be done all year around and doesn’t need a special day set aside to do it.
Also for those who don’t have a Valentine, treat yourself! You have to love yourself first before someone else can. Get dressed and go out to a nice restaurant. You will be surprised how good you will feel afterwards! You don’t always have to have company around to make you happy. Once you learn that, Valentine’s Day wont seem so lonely for those of you who are single.
Oh yea! Having a day like Valentine’s Day stimulates the economy and boi do we need a stimulating! LOL!
Peace, Love, and Happiness!
