Who said Valentine’s Day is just for cute, lovey dovey couples? It can be for YOU TOO! Girl (and Guy), Treat Yo Self!
Here comes February 14, Valentine’s Day, the day of love! For those cute couples, it is time to get all mushy gushy and buy their significant others flowers, giant teddy bears, and go eat somewhere fancy. It is a day to romance the other and to show that love is in the air! But what about for us single folks? Well, we usually spend the day sobbing at all the sappy love posts and drinking our way into misery.
KIDDING! We don’t do that. Sure, we do see all the sappy love posts and I am sure deep down, we wish we could have some of that sweet romance but a lot of us surround ourselves with others we love as well. And for some, we use it as a day to treat ourselves, spend money on us and do something special to show we love ourselves. For the single peeps who have yet to find their fish in the vast ocean, self love becomes vital on a new level, even more so after a break up.
So, I believe Valentine’s Day for my single people should be a day to treat yo self. Go buy you something nice. Take yourself to your favorite restaurant. Spend the evening with a glass of wine and your favorite book or movie. Make yourself feel special because you do not need someone to make you feel loved. Loving others starts with loving yourself. Self love and self care is important. It should be done every day but sometimes we just need a day where it is set in stone.
And for those in a relationship, do not hesitate to practice self love as well. Just because you have a significant other does not mean you should stop loving yourself. Also take this day to treat yourself and show yourself you love you. It just isn’t for you and your lover to show affection and love. So show yourself some loving, too!
I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s Day! Whether you were loving it up with your lover or enjoying the single life, I hope you took a little (or a lot) of time to practice self love and to treat yo self! 😀
