Why is it that a holiday celebrating love leaves so many people feeling more unloved than ever? Some people are sad because they're single, some people are sad because their partners don't make them feel special today and others are just pissed off at the commercialization of love.
Love belongs to US ALL.
Valentine's Day has a lot in common with New Year's Eve - it's one of those days you have to make a decision about - Are you going to learn from last year's debacle with the edible underwear? Or will you desperately try to recreate your serendipitously fabulous party? Or are you determined to pretend it's just like any other day?
Like New Year's Eve, for Valentine's Day there's lots of hype, huge expectations are built up, people get dolled up and spend too much money on things that cost half the price any other day of the year. There are tons of drunken hookups and there are those who sit home wallowing in sorrow, counting the minutes til the cursed day is over. And then there are those who are praying for a marriage proposal… Yep, New Year's and Valentine's are getting more similar every year!
But just like New Year's Eve for those who party all year long, Valentine's Day is amateur hour for lovers! Real lovers (no relationship required) love all year long. Lovers choose love everyday, not just one day a year.
So today, my love bug, I send you love. I hope you're sending it right back to me and to all those you're lucky enough to have in your life - your best friend, your girlfriend, your mom, your beagle - love is love is love is love! Make love your way of life!
