Ah, Valentine’s Day. One day a year when lovers across the country stop what they’re doing and show that special someone just how much they love them.
But what if you don’t have anyone to love? What if you don’t have a “special someone?” What if you’re one of the millions of men and women who are single. Then what?
Then it’s time to focus on your friendships.
For decades, single men and women have been spending every February 14th alone. Most of the single women would curl up under a blanket with a pint of ice cream and watch a romantic comedy. Most of the men would drown their lonesome sorrows–either in suds or sports.
These days, single men and women are coming together to claim Valentine’s Day for themselves. They are approaching the day with a positive attitude. They’re finding ways to show their friends how much they mean to them. They’re accepting that a Valentine’s Day dinner doesn’t have to be romantic. They are spending the day with friends–and they are loving it.
You see, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a burden for the single. It can be an opportunity to celebrate your life and all that you love about it. But you have to keep a positive attitude. Those things you think you’re supposed to hate about being single? Flip the script on them and view them as positives:
- You eat dinner alone = You get to eat whatever you want, whenever you want–every night of the year.
- You only get to go out when your friends are free = You actually get to go out with your friends.
- You haven’t found your true love = Everyone you meet–even your friends–could be your true love.
See how that works? Keep a positive attitude. Own your circumstance and appreciate that you have freedom, endless opportunities to have fun and friends. Then you spend February 14, Valentine’s Day, with friends–celebrating yourself and celebrating each other. Love the day. Own it. Take it back. That’s what knowing you’re Sentenced2Life and living life with passion is all about.
