Loving Love

By Danielleabroad @danielleabroad
Happy Valentine's Day! What's that, sweetheart? You're not happy about it? I don't understand why not; handwritten cards are sweet, chocolate is delicious, flowers are beautiful, and love is just about the most wonderful thing there is. loving love In all honesty though, I get it. Some of us are hurt, lonely, bitter even, and today has that special something to emphasize the fact. But how about be change that? Why don't we choose to view today not as an over-commercialized, sappy, insincere exaggeration of romance, but as a lovely reminder of how loved we are? We are, you know. Whether it's by family, friends, a significant other, or all three. 
loving love If you need to be sure, just call your mom, your dad, your sibling, or your best friend. Re-connect with your favorite college roommate over email or open up those signed high school yearbooks again. There's love in your life, kind of a lot, and today is the day to embrace it. 
Spread it, too. I just published an article on Pravassa with five ways to do so. Loving love,  and sharing it with others, is a lot more healthy than you'd think.
Also, please celebrate. If you're in a relationship, engaged, or married, I take it you've got your plans covered :) but if you're not, make some. This special lady is my lunchtime Valentine, and I'll be margarita-ing with three great friends tonight. Then again, you may not wish to dine out. So, consider Glamour's advice: Invite a few people over for board games or have a spa night all to yourself. And no matter what you end up doing or not doing, read this poem I wrote last year's Valentine's Day. Revel in each and every opportunity that only single life can bring.
