SHE Confession #3: Valentine’s Day…Not So Much!

Well it’s Valentine’s Day again and I don’t have a Valentine. Part of me is okay with that and part of me is a tad bit….I don’t know. I don’t know because, having or not having a Valentine to me is not that big of a deal. It is actually what not having one signifies that gets me a bit. The reality that I don’t have someone to love and someone to equally love me back.

Honestly, I’m in the middle on this whole Valentine’s thing. A part of me dislikes the fact that a vast majority of us run around on one day a year only and make a big deal about lust, romance and love. We go through great measures just to show a person one day a year that we care about them. How corny is that! I’m just saying, really…. If you truly have these enormous feelings for them why does one have to fall victim to commercialism and show love on one day because everyone else is doing so? Doesn’t it demean the whole idea?

Don’t get me wrong since I’m all for the “Love Movement” and better relations between men and women, anything that promotes love I co-sign. I’m not some Valentine Scrooge just because I’m Valentineless. I just want to know what’s up with showing your love, care or concern daily? If someone has my heart, HE does not have to wait until “V”day to know I care. HE will have numerous love letters, emails, text and simple daily acts of love from me to show for it. “Why wait for tomorrow, with what you could do today?” For tomorrow is not promised or guaranteed. You may never have the opportunity to do it again, say it again or be with that person again. Cherish each moment as though it were your last. Don’t fall in sync and do what’s expected for one day and then go back to whatever it was you weren’t doing before….and no I’m not amped because I’m Valentineless…..yes, I made up a word.
Lastly, while I’m just saying…SHEs if you are going to celebrate Valentine’s Day then understand that it is a two-way street. It is not another “SHE” holiday quite to the contrary popular belief. If you are expecting and hoping to receive thoughtful gifts, plans or gestures then I would hope you would represent the SHEs well and have the very same itinerary on deck. Happy Valentine’s Day to all my SHEs and HEs. May you have all the love your heart desires. May you have love all year through.
