GOOD MORNING MY LOVES!
Today is February 14, 2017, a day that either many people dread or many people are obsessed with, depending on your perspective and outlook on life. Today is Valentine’s Day. It is a day of mushiness, sappiness and love. The history of how Valentine’s Day began is obscure and confusing to many. The tradition was started in the days of the Roman’s and St. Valentine is said to be the perpetrator of all the festivities and activities that go along with the day. There are many different stories about this holiday and it’s patron saint, so I won’t go into the details. I want to talk about how this day can be just as important as other major holidays throughout our yearly calendar.
Try to not have a hardened heart. Everyday should be a day of love, but today is a day to show your kindness and love a little extra onto those who hold a special place in your heart. I have so much to be thankful for in my life; I am so loved and don’t know what I did to deserve that love. I want to go out into the world and show those who may not have someone special and is feeling lonely, that they are loved. Whether you are single, or have a significant other, today is more than just chocolates, candy, flowers, and hearts. It’s about showing the people around you how much you appreciate them and that you do care. So, rather than feeling sorry for yourself or making excuses for having a terrible Valentine’s Day, go tell someone you love them; your mom or dad, your grandma, or a best friend. I promise you that it will not only make them smile, but you will feel good on the inside knowing that you just made someone’s day.
There’s this song that I absolutely love called “Look Like Love”. It’s about how even when we have a bad day, when we don’t have time for anything it seems, we need to stop and look at all the things and people that help us get through all those hardships and why we are here today.”I want to look like love, be more than just enough, for the hearts that are broken, coming undone. It’s up to you and me, to leave a legacy. If we’re all they ever see…I want to look like love.” ~Britt Nicole
So, make today “One of those days” where you reflect on what makes you happy and who you want to show your love to just a little extra today! You never know what a smile and a few words can do for a person. Love always unconditionally yourself, your friends and family, and the world!
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE!!!
