When you don’t have a ‘valentine’ to love on Valentine’s Day it can feel awkward, especially if in years past, you did have someone whom you loved, but for whatever reason, you are not together anymore. Separations can be due to a variety of reasons which makes it hard when it seems like the whole world is celebrating a day of love with their sweetie.
But, I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a holiday for cherishing the relationships we have with others! It doesn’t need to be only romantic love that we celebrate that day! Not at all! For me, since my circumstances have changed, I celebrate Valentine’s Day with gratitude for my children, my family, my soul family and my friends who have filled my life with love. In fact, let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day together as you’re a part of my blogging family filled with love! Thanks for being here with me. I celebrate our connections today too!
So tomorrow, when the heart rises to meet the day, smile! Greet the hearts and flowers day with gratitude for all of the love you have shared on your life’s journey! Give thanks for the past loves, the present loves and look forward to the future loves! But above all, enjoy the present love which envelopes your heart and soul today! Enjoy the little kindnesses that are shown to you and smile to pass along those kindnesses as well. We could have a lovefest here on Planet Earth if everyone, for just one day, loved all humankind. Wouldn’t that be the very best Valentine’s Day ever?
So how about you? How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
