Makes you feel
If you have a lover or a beloved, you probably like Valentine’s Day. It’s a good day for feeling smug. But only if s/he gives you a card or flowers, or dinner or chocolates or a diamond. If they forget: not a good day.
If you don’t have a lover or a beloved, Valentine’s Day makes you feel like a loser. You feel less than. And who needs that
shit? Not a good day.
And yet, every year we go through the same feelings of triumph or desolation.
My Mother used to pooh pooh Valentine’s Day. “It’s a merchant’s holiday.” She was right. A sales opportunity to pick up the lull between Christmas and Mother’s Day (another merchant’s holiday).
I do not have a beloved in my life. But I have lots of love. I accept and give love in whatever form it comes. A smile is everything.
How about loving yourself for a start. Being gentle with yourself. Treating yourself. You are the best Valentine you could ever hope for.
If you do find yourself feeling unloved, unappreciated, overwhelmed with life, loss, or lack: stop. You have a Valentine. ME. I’ll definitely be your Valentine. Will you be mine?
Here’s a bouquet for both of us to seal the deal.
P.S. Please share your thoughts about Valentine’s Day.
