No matter how much I don’t want to hear about it, I can’t escape the fact that today is Valentine’s Day.
It’s not that I’m single. It’s not that as a child, we didn’t celebrate holidays.
It’s just. The same way I feel about Christmas.
I can’t understand why people place so much emphasis on JUST ONE DAY.
The weeks leading up to V-DAY and X-MAS are fully of buying frenzies and the retailers are the ones who derive the most benefit.
What if there were 300 Steps initiatives leading up to Valentine’s Day or Christmas?
My point is, you don’t need a day to profess your love or to celebrate the love God showed in sending his Son to earth to die for us. It takes more than that.
I think the day cheapens the true meaning behind each of the days and I would rather KNOW that I am loved every day of the year, than to have ONE DAY hinge on that knowledge.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m a romantic at heart, but, romance is an ongoing thing. Not a switch that comes on February 14 and then is turned off throughout the year.
So, if you love someone – let them know tomorrow and the day after and so on and so on…..
My goal for today is to get organized for this week. I need to do a press release and my partner and I have a new project launching that I’m VERY excited about.
Oh, and I need to check out the freelance writing job postings!
If you don’t hear it from anyone else today – I love you and appreciate you for who you are. Not just today, but, always! Thanks for being you 🙂
