I am single. And I know there are a lot of other girls out there as single as I am! On February 14th.. everything is about love. Roses and chocolate, hearts, hugs and kisses.. Depending on your viewpoint, you might think it adorable and dream about the future possibilities....or all of the romance in the air could send you into depression! I am somewhere in the middle. While I refuse to mope around dressed in black and call it single awareness day, I'm also not the type to sit around day dreaming about my future Prince Charming! I think this day can be a lot of fun, even if you are single...and here are some ideas of how you might like to spend it this year.
You are beautiful, special and loved by God. Of course you deserve to treat yourself once in a while! Go get a manicure in your favorite shade, or splurge on lunch at your favorite restaurant. Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers, or visit a new museum you've been dying to go to. Whatever you do, go out and enjoy yourself and remember how blessed your life has been thus far! Keep a thankful and positive attitude. No moping about past regrets and failures. Life is a beautiful journey, cherish every moment!
Know of someone lonely and going through a hard time? Why not take the day to make them feel loved and special! Treat a friend to lunch, or donate time to a local charity. Giving to others is one of the most fulfilling things you can do to ensure a happy and contented life! You will never regret it. ^_^
If you have a bunch of single buddies...why not plan to host a party? From a pampered spa themed sleepover to a formal dinner, the options are endless! If parties aren't really your thing, you can still get together with some friend to go see a movie or to enjoy pizza and bowling. Whatever you decide, it is bound to be a lot of fun with your friends!
~Write letters to all the important people in your life, letting them know how special they are and how much you love that they are a part of your life!
~Do you have a bucket list? Try to check off one or a few today! If you don't have one yet, why not write one out today? :)
~Start a prayer journal to hold all of your heart's inner most requests, desires and love to God.
~Make a specialized photo album for a family member or friend. Write little notes and add fun doodles and decorations to make it something they will treasure in the years to come.
How do you feel about Valentine's Day?
