People say that Valentine's day is for lovers, but I'm celebrating another Valentine's day loving myself. Afterall, if you don't love yourself, you can't really love someone else.
So while I wait for the love of my life to come into my life, I enjoy my life. I choose to pamper myself rather than pout about another Valentine's day with no one to share it with.
My Valentine's day consists of getting my hair done, getting a massage, getting a manicure and a pedicure. Then I buy a cute outfit and shoes that goes well with the color of my freshly painted fingernails.
My next move is going to a nice restaurant where I see all the loving couples together, but I confidently and unashamedly sit my single self down and enjoy a lovely meal. I figure if you can truly enjoy a Valentine's day alone, how much more enjoyable it will be when you can one day share it with someone.
Even with one guy dropping to his knees to propose to his Valentine, I am not intimidated by all the love I feel around me, but I embrace it and genuinely clap in celebration of two hearts becoming one. So despite the tears in my eyes, my heart is yet hopeful for my own love story.
I end my evening at the movies. One year I had the entire movie theater to myself. I prefer to watch an action movie rather than a love story one on Valentine's day. So playing that Valentine's day was Daredevil. It had the action I wanted and yes, a little bit of love : )
So you're single, but can you enjoy Valentine's day too? Yes you can!!! So all my single people, what are your plans for Valentine's Day?
