Considering it is Valentines Day tomorrow, I thought it would be appropriate to do a post about the day, specially for my gorgeous single girlfriends who are at a stage in their lives where they are now yearning to be in an amazing relationship 🙂
I know a lot of single people dread this day as it seems to be an evil reminder from the rest of the ‘coupled-up’ world that they are flying solo, the forever third-wheel and there is no one to love them ha ha 😀
Well I’m here to tell you today that it is not true! In my eyes, there is nothing sexier than a woman who knows her worth, the type of partner that complements her and is willing to wait for the right man. Having said that, if you still think this day is just plain evil, let’s look at various ways we can approach this day without feeling depressed about our ‘single’ status 😉
1. Love should be a constant act. Right?
If you are in a great relationship, then you are not going to wait for that one day of the year when you can show your love. Yes it may not be roses every single day but the expression of love should be a constant act in your relationship, not just limited to a day.
2. Valentines Day is about celebrating LOVE
Love comes in all shapes and forms. So make an effort to celebrate love that already exists in your life. This could be your family, friends or even a pet. Let them know how much you love them. The Universe picks up on good vibes and sends them back to you in one way or another.
3. Valentines Day is about self-love too
Do you love and accept yourself unconditionally? If you even hesitated to answer that with a big smile and a loud Yes, there is some serious work to do on yourself. How will someone else love you if you don’t love yourself? Make this day about showering some love on yourself. Buy something you have wanted for yourself for a long time, read a beautiful book, have a soothing bubble bath, go get a relaxing massage, go on a coffee date with your girlfriend/s – whatever floats your boat! 🙂
4. Valentines Day is about having fun
You would think you need a partner to spoil you on this day and even though that might be a lot of fun when you find that special person, for now why limit the fun? Why not catch up with a single guy/girl friend of yours and go watch a movie or book a nice restaurant for dinner and have some fun or have a girls night out on the town or stay in with some champagne (or kombucha) and put on Magic Mike 😉
5. Valentines Day gratitude
Find yourself a nice quiet space on Valentines morning with a green smoothie or a coffee and journal your heart out about the things you feel grateful for in your life.
If you’re at a point in your life when you don’t need a relationship or don’t feel ready to be in one, find gratitude in all things that you can do so easily which otherwise would have been hard with a partner.
If you’re yearning to be in a loving relationship, find gratitude in all forms of love that are already present in your life. Describe your dream girl/guy in words – not dot points – but rather feelings. Write a loving letter to them. Write about how you would feel when you finally meet him/her. Write about how it feels when they’re around you, when he/she touches you, how he/she treats you and so on. Visualize. It is a lot of fun! 🙂
6. Valentines Day sometimes can be just another day
For the ladies who don’t really care about this day – good on you. There’s really nothing wrong in just forgetting the whole fuss around Valentines and just going about your day as just another day so give permission to yourself to do just that.
I hope you enjoyed reading my views on how to spend Valentines day without feeling miserable about being single.
