Every year around Valentine’s Day, some of us get a bit upset and melancholy with all of Cupid’s vibes. Between the red roses and chocolate hearts, this day meant to celebrate love, can leave us with nothing more than a heart-hangover from Cupid’s misguided arrows.
"There's absolutely nothing to celebrate," some will say, when they may actually be feeling “there’s no one to celebrate with…” V-day definitely highlights singleness.
It’s time to turn those feelings around! Did you know that there is a special day to celebrate the awesomeness of being single?!
Singles Awareness Day or Singles Appreciation Day is celebrated each year on February 15th ~ the unofficial holiday to embrace the joys of being single!
If you love being single, you’re probably already nodding your head and ready to start the party!
Of course some of us don’t particularly like our single status. Let us help you reframe that.
Today is a day to focus on YOU! Use this holiday as a reminder that you do not need to be in a relationship to have a happy life right now. You’re significant all on your own, without a “significant other.”
Keep on celebrating yourself every day of the year. You don't need any particular day. It’s already beyond exceptional to be you.
One day I was walking on the beach early in the morning listening to a podcast that said, "We all have goals in our lives, but have you ever thought of the emotions you want to feel when you achieve them?”
We expect to feel happy finding the right person, right? But what if you find somebody incredible with you but still feel unhappy and empty?
That question changed everything for me and I began to ask “What do I need to do to celebrate the fantastic experience of being myself?”
I've realized how important it is to practice self love before finding the ONE.
It’s all about the simplicity of choices I make every day. Like walking on the beach, drinking coconut water, making myself something special and nutritious to eat, enjoying a long shower or luxurious bath, taking myself out for a coffee, and lying down on my Bed of Nails acupressure mat for a 10 minute BON session. All of these activities help me focus on loving myself in the present moment.
