Happy Valentine's Day! What's that, sweetheart? You're not happy about it? I don't understand why not; handwritten cards are sweet, chocolate is delicious, flowers are beautiful, and love is just about the most wonderful thing there is.In all honesty though, I get it. Some of us are hurt, lonely, bitter even, and today has that special something to emphasize the fact. But how about we change that? Why don't we choose to view today not as an over-commercialized, sappy, insincere exaggeration of romance, but as a lovely reminder of how loved we are? We are, you know. Whether it's by family, friends, a significant other, or all three.
Need some convincing? Just call you dad, your grandma, your brother, or your best friend. Re-connect with your favorite college roommate by email or open up those signed high school yearbooks again. There's love in your life, kind of a whole lot, and today is the day to embrace it.
Spread it, too. I just published an article on Pravassa with five ways to do so. Loving love, and sharing it with others, is a lot more healthy than you'd think.
