Valentine's Day has come to be known as the day for lovers. Though I have expressed repeatedly that everyday should be an opportunity for ROMANCE, St. Valentine's Day is the holiday for ROMANCE to show off! For me, Valentine's Day is like Christmas for Lovers. Our families honor Christmas in observance of Jesus Christ and come together with family and friends and exchange gifts. Valentine's is the same thing between two people who adore and enjoy each other.
Valentine's Day can be a beautiful holiday filled with love, fun, excitement, and future dreams and plans! This is the top date nationally that couples become engaged and start planning a future together. This is the day that all the great candy, novelties and jewelry go on sale for you to afford something extraordinary for your special someone. Valentine's is full of love songs, wining and dining and so much more. For one day everyone loves each other even among strangers. Even if you are Scrooge on Valentine's, its kind of hard to ignore the blushing, smiling, and tears of bliss on Valentine's Day.
So on Valentine's Day ignore your temptation to go on like its another day and do something spontaneous or plan something more special than the norm. Do something you don't normally do, go somewhere you've never been, try something again that you tried once before and loved and just enjoy this day of EXTRA SPECIAL ROMANCE with your special someone.
This day is also great to acknowledge your mother, sisters, mother of your children, and grandmothers even you don't have a special someone currently in your life. Or you can do something special for You! Go get a massage, get your hair and nails done, buy a new dress or suit, take off and rest for the day, take a trip or just treat yourself to that something you saw in the store that you walked away from (and I bet its on sale).
Enjoy Valentine's and get caught up in this day for lovers and just love the one your with and if you're not with anyone, love yourself more!
