Valentine's For Your Besties
Feb. 14th isn't just about 'lovers' - it's about (all the) people we love!
Sure, some folks inherently, full-scale resist a national dia de amor - and I get the angst-ridden emotions. Lots of us have experienced Valentine's Days that don't match the movies.
- receiving chocolates hastily grabbed from a pharmacy selection on the way to pick you up
- a dinner somewhere (normally) nice that felt rushed and cold from start to finish
- no date on the horizon whilst your office mates are receiving double-dozens of roses
Ugh! Been there for each of those! It's enough to make you wonder 'Cupid, what were you thinking?' or "I had my nails done for THAT?'
What's changed in my heart over time: an awareness that Valentine's Day s whatever I/YOU want it to be!
A pampering night in for one, complete with luxurious candle, fine chocolates and a book for planning future adventures? Sure!
A day to show love and appreciation for your besties? That, too!
Feb. 14th, when you think about it, can be the MOST inclusive, fun-and-kindness-filled day of the year - like most things, it's all in your approach and mindset!
Make a list of your close friends - both single and coupled up; those you talk to all the time, and those you miss and have fallen out of touch with lately - and send them words and gifts of love and affirmation.
They won't necessarily expect a Valentine from you, which makes your efforts - and their affects - all the sweeter!
You'll have the best time putting together their cards and gifts, and they'll have the best time unwrapping! Cheers to that!
When celebrating amigas, do have your pick of 2/13 (officially Galentine's Day) or 2/14 (Valentine's Day) - let's just make it grand together, and bless some lives! : )
