Valentine's Day


Valentine’s Day is one of those funny holidays. Some people love it, some people hate it, and then there are those who feel it is just another day. Depending on the year, I have found myself to be on both ends of the spectrum, however deep down I tend to like it more than sometimes I think I would like to admit. Call me a hopeless romantic, but Valentine's Day is a holiday I have always admired. Not for the superficial reasons that turn many people off, but instead because I admire the idea that it portrays. It is a day about love - not just romantic love - but all love. I feel that this is something that people tend to forget.

Valentine’s day isn’t a day just for those who are dating or married, but a day for everyone who loves somebody. It is a day to reflect upon all the love you have in your life, whether it be for a friend, a sister, your parents, or even for the love you have for yourself. Life is crazy, no one is going to tell you otherwise, and it can be easy to forget just how much love you have for the people in your life.

So today, February fourteenth, I challenge you to tell the people you love just how much you do love them. Send your parents a little love note telling them how much they mean to you. Send your sister some beautiful flowers just because. Grab all your single friends, go out to dinner, and just have fun. Or even just do something special for yourself. 

Life is short. None of us know how much time we have left. And as cliché as it may sound, the truth is at the end of it all all we have is each other & the love we share. So go celebrate Valentine's Day & be thankful for all the love in your life. 

Wishing you all a very love filled Valentine's Day!
