A day to love

Happy Valentine's Day! 

I have heard some v-day scrooges say that today is a manufactured holiday that doesn't represent anything or that it is a quick fix for people who don't show their love any other day .  I would like it to be noted; being negative about Valentine's Day doesn't make you a more perceptive romantic and it certainly doesn't make you any better at expressing your love the other days of the year.  Setting your partner up to understand that you aren't going to go out of your way today doesn't mean that deep down somewhere they aren't hoping for a little sumthin' sumthin'!  I understand where people are coming from with this, don't get me wrong, but I think it is perfectly harmless to celebrate today.  Go buy your love some chocolates, a pink gorilla, and lay on some sweet nothings.  There is nothing wrong with people taking a day to get a little sentimental and celebrate love!! 

In my book, Valentine's gestures need not be large or expensive.  They need to be from the heart.  So don't forget to express yourself, somehow, to the one you love.  Sentimental expressions of love is what today is all about. 

And don't forget...love starts inside of you.  You cannot truly love another unless you explicitly love yourself.  And NEVER settle for anything less than amazing.  If you are single, chin up, and appreciate today because being solo on Valentine's Day just means that your door is still open, waiting on the perfect partner to walk through, and that is exciting stuff.
