Happy Valentine's Day?

My son hates Valentine's Day.  It's the worst day of the year for him.  Why?  He has no one special to spend it with.  I told him he could come to our house and hang out, eat chocolate, and watch movies, but he's determined to be miserable on Valentine's Day.

But as everyone knows, sometimes it's better to be alone than in a bad relationship for Valentine's Day.  So if you are alone, and you're depressed, let me give you a bit of advice.  Date yourself.  Treat yourself like you'd like someone to treat you.  Buy yourself flowers.  Go out to eat or make yourself a wonderful meal.  Eat dessert.  Watch the funniest or sappiest movie you can find and let yourself laugh or cry.  Read a book and realize your life's not that bad, after all the things the character in the book has to deal with.  Date yourself and enjoy the time alone.  When you find out you can be your own best friend is usually the time someone walks into your life and interrupts that self-love awareness, which can be annoying.  LOL!

So Happy Valentine's Day, even if you are alone.  There's no time like the present to be your own best friend.

May you have a heartfelt and wonderful Valentine's Day!
