This one day- Valentines Day…It’s one day out of 365 days in the year. Wow does it hold a lot of expectations. A lot of weight. A lot of emotions…are you with me?
For some it’s a day of dread.
For some it’s a day of romance.
For some it’s a day of sadness.
For some it’s just another day.
I have found that “these days” aren’t always happy days. These days aren’t always easy. These days aren’t always what they are made up to be.
Personally I can relate to the idea of the day of dread…I was that single girl and this is the day that so vividly reminds you that you are single with no one around and no on in sight…and you feel like you’re the only one. You always reminded yourself it was “single awareness day”. The day you avoided public places i.e. restaurants as you watched what you thought was the sweet couple having dinner…the day you avoided the card aisle at the store or even the day you just avoided the social media because really lets be real…everyone really only posts the happy moments of relationships and life…deep down you know it’s just the happy posts.
I can relate to the day of sadness…you know that Valentine’s Day that you just broke up with that guy…yeh, you are glad about it… but boy does it bring back memories and honestly emotions of sadness because here we stand again- single.
Oh what about the day of romance…yep happily married now and I love getting a sweet note from the mister as well as giving a sweet note. We don’t go all out for Valentine’s Day because we like to celebrate and remember that our marriage and love isn’t just boxed up in one day…spread the love out over 365 days…I’d rather get surprise flowers a different day rather than the expected flowers on the expected day.
Oh that year it was “just another day”… The year I really pumped myself up to dote on others…like my students and my fellow single girlfriends…this year on this day it did wonders for my life!
So no matter where you are at on this Valentine’s Day I want to challenge you to look past your circumstances and look to others and encourage them. It does wonders…it helps with expectations and emotions and dread and pain and hurt and love and joy and the list goes on. Who is that someone you can send a note of encouragement to that you know this certain day of the year won’t be easy on? I challenge you to take the leap because you won’t regret doting on them. Whether they are near or far 1-800-Flowers.com has you covered. It’s got options for anyone, not only flowers!!!
PLUS I love getting a potted plant that will last them and help the memory linger to encourage them for a long time! I am such a practical gift giver!!!!
