I love Valentine's Day.
I love the hearts, the chocolates, the overpriced flowers, the parties....
I love that there is a day to celebrate love.
As I was scrolling through my newsfeed this morning, I read the typical posts that "Valentine's Day haters" post.
Here's the two common themes...
"I hate Valentine's Day! It's such a commercial holiday!"
"I show my (so and so) that I love them every day of the year! I don't need Valentine's Day to show them."
To me, Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate the idea of love.
We go through life every day busy with work, kids, school, family...
Life is busy!
It's nice that there's a day in the year to remind us that without love, this world would really suck!
It doesn't have to be romance today.
Since becoming a mom, I always do something special with my kids today.
I want to celebrate our love for them!
I completely agree that this holiday is totally a commercial holiday meant to make money, etc. etc. etc.
But I'm an optimist, and to me, that means it's a day for people to spend money and stimulate our economy! BOOM! HOW ABOUT THEM APPLES (or chocolates)?!?
Your negativity is not needed on a day most people like to celebrate love.
Do ME a favor and stay off Facebook today if you don't want to see everyone's "cheesy" Valentine's day posts and photos.
I have noticed most (I said MOST) of the people who are negative about today tend to be either my very pessimistic friends, single friends, or friends in bad relationships.
And if you aren't gonna stay off social media, maybe you can find a little bit of positivity and LOVE in your heart, and tell someone on Facebook that you love them!
Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!!
