Happy Valentine’s Day.

Single or taken, it seems that Valentine’s Day tends to get a bad rap. If you’re in a relationship and smothered with gifts on the day, you may question why you don’t receive attention/care like that daily. If you’re in a relationship and don’t celebrate the day, you have to repeatedly explain why to others. And if you’re single, you’re sometimes left feeling on the sidelines watching others receive adoration or praise.

Let’s change this cycle. If you’re in a relationship, single, celebrate, or don’t, Valentine’s Day is still a day. A day full of wonder and possibilities, just as every calendar day is. Treat yourself to something nice, pamper yourself when you get home from work, whatever it may be… make this day great for you.
