Love has different forms, and it need not be romantic all the time. Sometimes there is a lot of love in friendships and platonic relationships too. Valentine’s Day week has started, and a flurry of activities is happening around you. Supermarkets and stores are flooded with goodies and gifts, and you can see shades of pink, red, and white dominating these stores and supermarkets. Heart-shaped gift items, stuffed toys, and flowers in Valentine’s Day colors are all around you.
What can make you a bit low this week is if you are single, and do now have anyone to shower love on you. Your friends and family members are all spending time with their loved ones celebrating Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day, and Valentine’s Day, and it makes you wonder, is Valentine’s Day meant only for couples? Why cannot single people also celebrate Valentine’s Day as it is all about love?
Though Valentine’s Day is often associated with love and romance and is considered to be a day for lovers, it is always not the case. You need not have a partner or a lover to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Express your love to your parents, siblings, cousins, friends, colleagues, and even pets, and make the day memorable.
Create happy and loving thoughts this Valentine’s Day even though you are single by indulging in a few things like:
Be grateful for all that you have and thank God for everything
Do not think of the things you do not have, instead be grateful for your friends, family, pets, health, and job. Thank God for all that you have in your life and make your Valentine’s Day special.
Call a friend with whom you have not spoken in ages
Make a call to a friend or a relative with whom you have not been in touch for a while. Catch up with them, and share what is happening in your life. You will feel good talking to someone you have not called in a long time. They are also going to be happy to hear from you and will enjoy the chit-chatting session after a long gap.
Go out with your friends
In case you have been busy and have not met up with some of your friends, plan an outing. Go out for a meal to your favorite restaurant, or you can call them over for lunch/tea/dinner. Catch up with what is happening in their lives. To make the outing exciting, choose a color theme or wear a symbol of Valentine’s Day. It is time to have fun, and go ahead and do it.
Make someone feel special
There might be some friend, colleague, or relative who might be going through a problematic phase in their lives. Reach out and make them feel loved and valued. There are so many ways to do it, send them a gift, send them flowers, take them out, or invite them over. Let them know they are in your thoughts and prayers.
Pamper yourself and feel special
Valentine’s Day is a special day and instead of feeling sorry for yourself that you are single and feeling sad, pamper yourself. Book yourself for a spa session, get a manicure and pedicure done, buy yourself a gift, or book a table at your favorite restaurant and go for dinner on your own. Dress up according to the Valentine’s Day colors, and you surely are going to feel special and loved.
Remember and appreciate the people who care for you and love you
It is not every day we remember friends, family, colleagues, and others who have helped us, cared for us, and given us their time when we needed it. Be thankful for their presence in your life.
Send a gift to your parents
Valentine’s Day is not about love and romance, you can shower love on your parents too. Get them a gift this Valentine’s Day and surprise them. They are going to appreciate your loving gesture and feel happy. Go ahead and get them a gift or take them out for dinner to their favorite restaurant.
