Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I’m sure you’re excited and filled with anticipation of what the day (or night) will bring, right? No? If not, then chances are you one of the many unmarried or single people who wish that February 14 would quietly disappear from the calendar, because of all the focus on couples and romance. What’s a girl or guy to do when there is no significant other? While everyone is making plans for romantic candlelit dinners and ordering roses for their sweetheart, there’s no reason why you can’t do the same and treat yourself! Don’t you think you deserve to be treated well! Who has your best interest at heart better than you?
I am happily married, but I thoroughly enjoy Me Time! While I’m quite comfortable sitting in a restaurant and enjoying a meal alone or going to the movies solo, I realize that everybody is not comfortable doing the same. If you want to celebrate yourself, but feel uneasy about doing so by yourself on Valentine’s Day, go ahead and make it a group effort. Make plans with a few confident and fun-loving single friends and make the day memorable! Here are a few ideas: 1) Mani’s/pedi’s, massages and facials are always more fun with others. You can catch up on one another’s life and chat while being pampered, 2) Take a dance class and dance the blues away! Most classes offer dancing afterwards, 3) Show love by volunteering to help those who are less fortunate or by taking an elderly family member to dinner. Chocolate will melt and flowers wilt, but giving of yourself leaves an impact forever and that is really what LOVE is all about…
Take action now: Meditate on 1 John 3:1a – Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God. (NKJV)
Embrace this truth: You are loved!
