It's a day to celebrate the loves in your life, whoever they may be. If, for whatever reason, you don't have romantic love in your life, then celebrate the love of family, the love of good friends, the love of God, and most of all, the love of self.
I've celebrated many a Valentine's Day, with no significant other in my life. Whether or not there was a special someone had absolutely no bearing on whether I observed the holiday. I've always had my family to honor, if no one else. Stuffed animals and trinkets for my children, flowers for my mom, cards and gifts for Dad.
Lately though, I hear folks saying that if you aren't attached, it's a miserable day. I don't really understand why. Perhaps it's a reminder that you are single. Single ain't so bad--single could mean drama free. Single could mean that you are in a "loving myself" mode--where you may be going to school, starting a business, or simply discovering who you are and where you are going. I think it's all in what you make of it. But then again, for the last few Valentine's Days, I've been happily married.
I'm interested to know what you will do for the holiday--please also say if you're single or attached. And if do happen to be one of those who feel's miserable because you are without a mate--let me be the first to say, "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!"
