Today is February 14, better known as the day everyone feels that they have to proclaim their love to SOMEONE. Honestly, there are 365 days in the year! So, to say that this one day is the day to be nice, romantic, and show your that special person that you care is just sad. Why aren’t we being all those things Every. Single. Day.?
In any case, I haven’t looked forward to this day in a very long time. I am a romantic person by nature but the men in my life- old boyfriends and my future-ex have been the exact opposite. It seemed like the more I hoped or even tried to organise a spectacular V-Day moment, it nine times out of 10 turned to shit! I mean shit of epic proportions…
Fast forward to this year, and I was trying to figure out a day to see my dear friend Alexandria, and she was like, “Wednesday is Valentine’s Day”! I had forgotten, so I asked her if she wanted to be my date and like any good girlfriend, she said yes. We are finally going to check out this restaurant she has been telling me about for ages. I cannot wait, because the speciality is lobster.
What are you doing today to love yourself? I hope you buy yourself flowers, drink champagne, eat chocolate, get a massage, go to the movies, or whatever it is that you want to do. I also wrote this post today because I want to give you a little gift. Promise me you will listen to this incredible remix of an old classic, I Love Myself and DANCE. No need to thank me.
The most important relationship you can have is with yourself. So, go on love yourself today and every day of the year for that matter!
