‘Valentine’s Day’…You mean ‘Single Awareness Day?’
For those of us that are single, today is the biggest reminder of such status, right? …Quality time with my chicas is very important, so this month’s girl talk has been listening to their plans and gifts for their loves, like…
- “Guess what I got us at the toy shop?”
- “I wont be home for the weekend because I am getting away with my boo!”
- “Oh I got roses at work!”
- “My parents are sitting the kids for our special date!”
And I could easily say “blah, blah, blah” However, I won’t because I love these girls and it truly makes me happy to see them In Love!
On the other side, I also have friends that self pity themselves this month; for that, I wanted to take the time to write about this important topic.
Singleness is definitely not a synonym of loneliness, but all these stories of love could make us somewhat lonely…the commercials, the hearts, the love songs, the chick flick marathons, all the love and happiness of so many love birds can be a constant reminder that something is missing in our lives on this day!
With that being said I wanted to give you 5 ideas to celebrate this beautiful day with self love, with your family and friends!
1. Date night with your boyfriend, ‘GYM’
Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get any action on Valentine’s Day… in the gym, that is. Exercising is a great way to blow off steam, clear your mind, and feel good about yourself!
2. Pamper yourself
Who says you need a king to make you feel like a queen? Time to indulge in all your guilty pleasures. Get a mani and a pedi. Give yourself a facial at home (my favorite :http://www.herbalifeskin.com/) get rid of all the damage that winter has done to your skin while listening to your favorite Pandora station and sipping on a glass of wine! Do whatever you want to do because this Valentine’s Day you can have your cake and eat it too—and go back for another slice.
3. Have a movie marathon
Invite over your other single friends, make some popcorn, sit back and relax!
4. Have a girls’ night out
Nice restaurant, your favorite bar, concert, dance club, movie theater, coffee shop—your options are endless. However you and your friends like to have fun, make the most of Valentine’s Night by dressing up and going out. Try a new place you’ve been meaning to go to, or look online to find out if anything exciting is going on in the area. You may even get some free drinks out of it; single guys get lonely on this holiday too! 5. Love your singleness
Think about all the marvelous benefits of being single, no time for self pity! You have your whole life to find love—take the time you have now to discover yourself, have new experiences, grow and be independent, and make amazing friends. Recognizing all the reasons you love flying solo will remind you that it’s nothing to mope about.
How will you be spending your single Valentine’s Day?
