My husband has been away for the past couple of weeks, and will be away for Valentine’s Day, and I started to get pretty depressed at the thought of not celebrating with him. Then, my ‘single’ voice popped into my head.
“What? Are you serious? We did Valentine’s Day stuff for ourselves LONG before you were married!”
And you know what? The relationship you have with yourself, and more importantly, how YOU treat yourself is so very important. So, I’m not waiting to treat myself well for Valentine’s Day. You can’t sit and wait for others to make you happy, that’s YOUR job to do. It’s nice to have someone to do it with, but it’s not mandatory. Do things that you’ve always wanted to, but never been able to – get that massage, go to the museum or the movies, volunteer to help others, but for the LOVE of Heaven, please do something to show that YOU love YOU! It’s your first, last and best relationship.
