I love Valentine’s Day. I always have. It’s one of those holidays that can sometimes feel so commercial and corny, but I totally get sucked in because I think nothing is sweeter than making the people around you feel loved.
I know Valentine’s Day is a holiday for lovers, and although I appreciate the romantic side of things, I have to admit that it’s never felt like just a romantic holiday to me. When I think about Valentine’s Day, I think of my friends, my family and the kids exchanging valentines at school. I think it’s a day to express love to anyone in your life who brings you joy.
Whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, I hope you embrace Valentine’s Day this year. Like me, I hope you realize that it’s really not about cupid and romantic love (okay, maybe it is a little bit). But seriously, I just think we should all take some time to enjoy the day, regardless of what is going on in our personal lives. Life is too short. Here are 5 reasons to celebrate that are not romantic at all. I hope you take some time to have a little fun this Valentine’s Day.
