To be honest, Valentine's Day is not my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I love a good card and any excuse to eat candy and spread the love--but I think the holiday itself is purely commercial.
HOWEVER, I do think all the hype is a good nudge for us to remind those we love--friends, family, boyfriend, girlfriend etc.--how much we appreciate them. There can never be enough of that, right? Who knows, even a little text could make someone's whole day.
I found a quote the other day that really rang true with me. Oscar Wilde wrote, "to love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance." I don't know about you, but this is something I need to remind myself of frequently. Sometimes my Type-A personality takes over and I tend to be pretty hard on myself and my worst critic. I guess sometimes we forget that before we can love others we have to love ourselves, too.
SO, this Valentine's Day I want to let my friends, my guy and my family know how special they are to me AND try to give myself a little love. The more ya got, the more ya got to give, yanno?
Are you planning to celebrate Valentine's Day? How do you show yourself love?
