Valentine's Day: Spirit of Giving

I know a lot of people think Valentine's Day is a holiday meant for "couples" but I am definitely not one of them. I am not one of them who feels the need to go out with single girlfriends and celebrate our "freedom" because we all know the real motives behind this. Today, I sent a mass email (a meaningful mass email) out to the people that matter in my life. Hallmark really needs to step up there game. Valentine's Day is about love and not just the romantic love but the love we have for everyone in our life. It's about the spirit of giving. The time I share with my friends, my sister, my family, my co-workers...what really makes my life special. So of course, we all know that I am single ha-ha. BUT, I say this with love, I am happy. And I want everyone out there in my life to know that they make my life happy. Of course, a boyfriend adds that "special" kind of love. But overall, everyone just wants to be loved and I truly know I am. All these talk shows that try to console single people and say "the 15th is right around the corner"? Well, I'm happy, on the 14th. And I have all of you to thank for that. Happy Valentine's Day!
