With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and everyone in the spirit of celebrating that day, I wanted to share with you my thoughts about it and hear your opinion on this topic.
I guess most of us all know the feeling: we like to feel loved, cherished and to spend our time with someone we genuinely care about. Also, probably a lot of us felt like needing to spend Valentine’s Day somehow differently than every other day just because society wants us to make it a special day.
I get that and I’ve been there, trust me.
A few years ago, I also insisted on celebrating Valentine’s Day – with my boyfriend, at that time – and make it a special day with presents and going out or just preparing something special for my significant other. With time passing, I changed my mind and I started seeing things a bit differently.
In the past few years, I’ve been asking myself – why do we feel the need to show love on a specific day other than on any other day? Why not show someone that you love them every time you get the chance?
I doesn’t matter if you’re having a partner, a crush – or if we are talking about your family or your best friends. Love shouldn’t be something we give on a specific day because we’re supposed to. It should come naturally every time we spend time with our loved ones, whoever that may be.
Love can mean so much – it’s not a word or a present and it is most certainly not one day per year. Love is wanting to share your thoughts with someone, it is a good morning text message just showing that you are thinking about someone, it is a surprise with his favourite dish after a long day. Love is surprising your significant other with spontaneous plans on your days off, taking care of each other when you’re not feeling well, and sharing your body and soul with the right person. Love can also mean having nights that turn into mornings with your best friends, talking about everything on planet earth for hours without stopping, spending time with your family to reconnect or having your friends on speed dial to call when you’re feeling down.
Love can be so much more than just one day per year so let’s celebrate each day whatever type of love you feel for people you care about.
Show the people around you that you care about them and let’s celebrate love in every possible way! ♥
What about you? Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day or is it just like any other day for you? If you do celebrate, is there something specific that you do with your significant other? Let me know, I’m curious to hear your thoughts ;)
