Over the years Valentine's Day is becoming more and more about consumerism. However it should be about appreciating the ones around you; whether they are romantic, family or friendships. Valentine's Day is more about appreciating the little things in life, rather than counting the amount of roses you get.
Personally, I've always preferred celebrating Valentine's Day as a singleton compared to being in a relationship as it reminds me to practise self-love and self-care. This Valentine's Day I am going to be spending the evening with a group of friends and going for a lovely meal. It gives us all a chance to dress up extra nicely and remember that it is completely normal to spend Valentine's Day single. I highly recommend meeting up with your friends on Valentine's Day, maybe treat them to a cuppa and just let your loved ones know how much you appreciate them.
If distance makes things a little harder to tell your loved ones, then give them a phone call. You never know by letting them know that you are grateful for them, it could maybe make their day. If you can't spend valentine's day with anyone, maybe treat yourself to a takeaway and have a well deserved beverage.
"You carry so much love in your heart. Give some to yourself."
