It’s Valentine’s Day! If you have a significant other, enjoy the romance of today, post those cute and sappy pictures, and remind your person how much you love and appreciate them. If you’re single, do not hate those that are celebrating and do your own thing. This holiday is all about love; love for your family and friends counts too! My friends brought me flowers, chocolate, and a note. It was something simple and yet it made my day, so today can be about reminding anyone that you love them. Make your friends’ day! Bring your mom or grandma flowers. Just because you are not in a relationship or it’s complicated right now doesn’t mean you have to miss the fun. Get your friends to have a girl’s night or a bros night, you don’t have to treat the day like anything out of the ordinary if you don’t want to. My plans include watching “To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You”, eating chocolate-covered strawberries, drinking some wine, and then going out with my friends.
I listened to a podcast this week from Barstool, Schnitt Talk. Ellie and her co-host Alana discussed Valentine’s Day and I agreed with their thoughts. One of her big points was to not be a hater during this holiday, it’s supposed to be fun and to let people be happy. She also points out that you do not need to feel sorry for yourself because you’re single every other day of the year so you don’t need to make this day special. Do what makes you happy but don’t ruin the day for others and just have fun today.
