No need to hate the day of love or pretend that you do. There is no other love more important than the love you have for yourself. So whatever you would do with a significant other – if you had one – do it. Make it all about you! Treasure your time. What does Valentine’s Day mean to you – flowers, chocolates, romantic dinner, or cards?
Buy yourself your favorite flowers, they don’t have to be roses. Since giving is one of the best things you can do for yourself – buy a bunch of flowers for someone that you appreciate.
Buy yourself those chocolates! In fact, buying your own chocolates guarantee you will get the ones you really enjoy.
Put on your favorite CD, playlist or try something new ( old school – Billie Holiday, Etta James, Barbara Streisand ) pour a glass of wine or your favorite bubbly and prepare that delicious three course meal. Yes, because you are that special!
Give Valentine’s Day cards to your co-workers, in fact go out and buy the children’s cards, similar to the ones you once gave to your friends when you were eight years old. Your co-workers will get a kick out of it and you will have fun preparing and handing them out.
