Hello! How are you? 💕💕
So it’s that time of year again where all you see is flowers, chocolates, perfume and lingerie all around. The smell of love. Greattttt! Ahah! I mean I have never been a fan of Valentines Day mainly because I have never been in a relationship so i have never experienced the excitement of it. If you are in a relationship and feeling all loved up today then i am happy for you and enjoy it. If you are a single Pringle like me then please continue reading…
Most Valentines I spend the days leading up to it feeling some sort of pressure that I am single. Feeling inadequate and a real sense of FOMO. Then I realised: It’s okay to be single. Please read that again. No pressure, no missing out on nothing. It is okay to be single. More than okay. It’s great! You have plenty more years to fall in love and break up with people and fall in love again so one more Valentine’s Day single is okay!
In fact if you are single on Valentine’s Day why not focus on loving yourself? After all how can you fall in love with someone if you don’t love yourself? Self love is more than posting a selfie of yourself that you really like. It is about taking care of your body and mental wellbeing whether that be eating good, exercising, meditating or surrounding yourself with the people that you love.
And on that note. Why does Valentine’s Day have to be about a boyfriend/girlfriend ?? You can spend the day sending love to the family and friends around you. Showing them how much you appreciate them. I LOVE the whole Galantines Day idea. You can show love in so many ways on V day.
The day is all about love after all. So instead of feeling all alone and crying into a bowl of ice cream watching Sex and the City. Why not spend the day sharing the love with your family and friends or yourself?
I am going to spend the day at work (amazing distraction) sending all my family and friends lots of love and treating myself to a relaxing evening. A good face mask, some good food and maybe one episode of Sex and the City….hehe!
Have a beautiful week my loves, speak soon xxxx
