Happy Valentine's Day!

Eight months ago I thought I would be in the same boat as a lot of our readers and be in an anti-Valentine’s Day frame of mind. Don’t get me wrong. I do think it is such an over- commercialized day and that there is no reason why this day should be the only time you express your love and feelings for another. But I also can’t help but to get caught up in happiness that the day brings to people. The way a girls face lights up when she has a dozen long stem red roses delivered to her workplace. The thought that goes into presents to see that smile on your partners face when they open it. The public displays of affection and love between two people. Of course there is another reason why I’m not in the anti-Valentine’s Day boat but out of respect I intend to keep references to him at a minimum at this stage. He knows about the blog and is OK if I write about him but for now I think I will try and keep him out.

I understand that this day can be rather depressing to many people out there. Remember I’ve been through a broken relationship too. But one thing that I maintained throughout the whole process was that being negative was a waste. A waste of time, a waste of energy, a waste of emotions. I don’t think enough can be said about the power of positive thinking. For starters you feel an amazing change in yourself. It can be very uplifting. I can tell you from experience that having a smile and being positive is a great start to meeting a guy. In my newly single days I didn’t get any attention from guys. Why? Because I wasn’t happy. And that’s what I was putting out there. I didn’t realize it but obviously guys picked up on it and didn’t come anywhere near me. Then there was a change. Guys started noticing me. I was happy again and they must have picked up on that. You need to be comfortable and confident with yourself and If a guy has to pick from the girl who looks like her puppy just died or the girl who is smiling and looks happy who do you think he will choose? The next question is which girl do you want to be?

So this Valentine’s Day instead of feeling down because there isn’t someone buying you roses. Go out and do something for yourself. Do something that will make you happy and smile. Do something to show that you love yourself. Don’t you deserve it?
