Two weeks from today is the day of love. It is the day set aside for lover's to celebrate their love for each other and treat each other like kings and queens. This is a big day for restaurants and florists and card companies. It is also a day of stress for many who are trying to figure out the perfect gift for the occasion. For some people it is just another day.

For many Valentine’s Day is nothing to celebrate. It can bring back memories of love gone wrong or loneliness or other less than pleasant feelings. You can get sick of hearing everyone talk about their sweethearts and what they got. Let’s face it, this day can just plain suck for some.This doesn’t have to be a day about love but rather about celebrating what you love.

I say make it a day of celebrating YOU and all that is awesome about you. Treat yourself. Be your own Valentine. Tell yourself you are special and treat yourself that way because believe me…you are special and you matter in this world. Spread some smiles and buy yourself an extra large coffee drink, buy yourself your favorite dessert, watch your favorite movie, do something that makes you feel good and pamper yourself. You deserve it. Flowers die and chocolates get eaten but finding a way to make yourself happy will help you for the rest of your life. You Rule!!! Let your light shine this Valentine's Day and be your own Valentine.
