I know, I know there are plenty of people out there who can not stand, shall I dear say it. Valentines day. There are so many negatives that are associated with the V word. Cheesey, exploitation, money, etc. For others, they like to take this day as a day of fun, happiness and a reason to go all out, when in normal circumstances, they probably wouldn’t have. Some people like to go the extra mile or two and others will spend their time moaning and groaning and giving out negative energy as to why they don’t celebrate V day. I mean who cares. If you don’t celebrate it and you don’t like it, then don’t celebrate it, but please stop moaning. No one needs to hear that type of negativity.
I myself do not care either way. I see it as fun and at times needed. Not everyone is good at letting others know how much they mean to them. Why? Not because they don’t but because they tend to get caught up with the everyday grime of life and when it comes to going out not much effort goes into it. Others on the other hand are great at this at any time of the year.
Besides all of the above, no matter what, you can not escape it. All you need to do is walk into your local shop or go out shopping and displays of pinks and reds are right there in your face. Love it or loath it. Anyway, besides all this lovely scent of love in the air and loving your partner, and treating them to dinners and gifts and flowers. Not much talk goes to loving yourself. As human beings we get into a habit of neglect and the practice of not giving much thought in or to ourselves. We all know why, too busy dealing with life, self-hatred, self-doubt, self-belief being non-existent and the list goes on. It can be hard to love ourselves or remind ourself to love ourself.
KEEPING IT POSITIVE
If you are one of those who forgets about how important you are, how great you are and how valued you are. Use this month or this day to remind yourself. Remember it takes 21 days to form a habit so why not start today. Love is not just about being in a relationship with someone, it is about loving your friends, and telling them, your family and most importantly loving yourself.
Watch out for the month of love daily series. 28 days of love.
Happy V day peeps.
