Happy Valentine’s Day Babes!
Also Happy Self Love Day!! (honestly, I’m celebrating this today because ya girl believes in all things self-love)
So, a show of hands who is single today!?
Me and I don’t care!
This will be my second year being single on v-day and for me this is just another day. Even when I was with my ex I didn’t really give two shits about Valentine’s Day. You should show love to your partner every day, not only on this day.
Today I’m sharing why I could care less I’m single on Valentine’s day and you shouldn’t either.
Every Day Should be Valentine’s Day
So your single today and you feel blah because of the love flowing around.
My opinion – so what.
It’s one day out of the year that has become so commercialized people aren’t showing their love for the right reasons anymore.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day has become something you have to do as a couple instead of being something you want to do. There is so much pressure to have the “perfect” Valentine’s day instead of just showing true affection.
Every damn day should be Valentine’s day – not just today.
Single Girl Status
The main reason I give to shits about being single today is because I don’t mind being single.
Ya, I said it, I don’t mind being single.
Don’t get me wrong last year was my first single Valentine’s Day and I was sad. It had been yeearrs since I was by myself and I’ll admit it was weird. But, I realized I shouldn’t be sad because I was no longer in an unhealthy relationship.
Now – I appreciate my single girl status.
I appreciate being single because I:
Learned how to love the F out of myself
Figured out how to stand on my own two feet
Decided to go after my dreams
Took my power back
There has been so much I’ve gained by being single it’s insane. I do not look at my single status as a bad thing but a blessing.
Celebrate Being Single
Take today and celebrate your single girl status! Do something you love and celebrate you today.
You are a strong, beautiful confident woman who does not need one day out of the year to feel special. You should be treated that way every damn day even if you are doing it for yourself.
