Where are my single ladies? Don’t be ashamed, speak up! I’ve been single before. As the good old saying goes, “that’s because I’m alone, doesn’t mean I’m lonely.”
When I was single, I would be the first to jump up at the wedding reception when it was time for the bride to throw the bouquet. As a matter of fact, and this is a fact, I attended two weddings within months of each other and guess who caught the bouquet…both times? Yep, it was me!
While your “booed up” friends are celebrating their love, you’re happily celebrating YOU!
One of my favorite daytime shows is The Real on FOX. On one of their Valentine’s Day-themed episodes, the co-hosts introduced a segment called “5 Days of Love” to countdown to the BIG day and to help others express their feelings for their significant others, like making surprise proposals and reuniting couples who were somehow disconnected.
Loni Love, co-host, and comedian, constantly and proudly admits she is a “satisfied single.” What does that mean? Simply put – she is satisfied being a happy, single woman.
You see ladies and gents – being in a marriage or relationship does not define you. You define yourself. Build your own self-esteem. Confidence. Courage.
You should not be reliant on another person to “complete” you. Make yourself complete. I admire the fact that Loni Love is confident with being single and satisfied with her decision.
Growing up, looking at others around us and on TV, we learned that Valentine’s is all about love, kisses, chocolates, hopeful engagements and other dramatic ways of expressions. What I was happy to see discussed on The Real was to simply…LOVE YOURSELF! Love you! If you desire to be in a relationship one day, how can you expect to be loved if you are not truly satisfied and confident in yourself?
So, for all my “satisfied singles” out there, what do YOU have planned for Valentine’s?
Glitz, Glam, Glow = Galentine’s Day Celebration!
Loni Love made a great suggestion – while couples are out celebrating, you can hit up a nice, conservative club, or lounge where there is a strong possibility that other single people will be there, too! Awesome idea, right? No harm in mingling.
Not into the bar and lounge scenes? Round up your single gals or guys pals and make it a great night! Hang out, watch movies, play a game of pool, etc. The possibilities are endless.
Heard of Galentine’s Day before? It’s day celebrated on the day before Valentine’s, February 13, for all single gal pals. You get together and party like it’s 1999!
Get dressed up, glitzed, glammed and glow! A way to achieve this are some glowing accessories to accompany your showstopping outfit.
Now, on to the people who want love and prefer not to be single, what are you doing to celebrate? Please tell me you will not be home in your PJ’s, with a box of chocolates, wallowing in your misery.
No, no, no! Get dressed and go out and have fun. Head to a lounge and meet new people. You never know…your future mate awaits!
Now that I gave you a lesson about Valentine’s and loving yourself, again, how will you be celebrating? Have any ideas you want to share? Leave your comments below! I read and reply to all my readers!
