Two weeks ago from today was Valentine’s Day; a day of love for many couples and a day of chocolate M&M’s and hard-A for many singles.
I recently had a conversation with a friend about if Valentine’s Day is overrated or not. I guess it depends on how one celebrates V-day.
So, here are my guidlines to celebrating a not-so-overrated V-day:
1) You don’t need a lover!
If you have a significant other, then great! But if not, then don’t fret.
Now, I should hate V-day considering I had my heart broken the day after Valentine’s Day two years ago by my ex. The story is a little tragic, but it didn’t make me hate the holiday.
2) Don’t hate.
Being a negative noodle doesn’t do much to boost your spirits on V-day or any day. Choose something you like to do and do it.
3) Surround yourself with love.
If there isn’t a lover in the picture, then celebrate this day with people who make you feel good.
4) Spread the love.
Tell or show your loved one(s) how much you care. For example, I make my mom a card or craft every Valentine’s Day.
5) Express love every day.
My ultimate guideline for a not so overrated V-day is that it’s essential to show love and appreciation towards loved ones on days that aren’t just reserved for special treatment.
C’mon, don’t be a dummy!
