Valentine’s Day: A Day for Love and Gratitude

On this Valentine’s Day, whether you are happily or unhappily single, completely certain that you love the one you’re with, doubly doubtful that you love the one you’re with or still looking for the one that will be the finishing piece in the puzzle of your life, focus on love and gratitude this Valentine’s Day.

If you are happily single, avoid feeling lonely and left out. Instead be grateful for the fact that you are single and for all of the privileges and pleasures of singledom: freedom, solitude, independence, flexibility, to name a few.

If you are unhappily single, then decide that you are going to make it a personal priority to find someone to spend your life with and give this goal the time, effort, energy and attention that it deserves. Be grateful for every opportunity that you have to meet someone and be aware that it takes time to find love and it is definitely worth it. Be patient with yourself.

If you are completely certain that you love the one you’re with, then rather than spending money on a gift or card, write a letter of gratitude to the one you love. Tell them all of the reasons that you love them and thank them for loving you and allowing you to love them.       If you still want to give them a gift, give them the gift of an experience that you can share together with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime rather than giving them chocolates that will be eaten or sending them flowers that will only last a short time. 

If you are doubly doubtful that you love the one you’re with, take some time to think about whether you have doubts about the love you feel for yourself or the other person. You may be unhappy with your own life and blaming the other person for this unhappiness. If you do not love yourself, what can you do for yourself? If you have doubts about the other person, be grateful for who they are and what they do for you. If you can’t think of anything, maybe it’s time to have an honest talk about your relationship and see what can be done by both of you to improve it.  Be certain that you have done everything you can before you walk away.

If you are still looking for the one that will be the finishing piece in the puzzle of your life, he/she may be closer than you think either at home or in your workplace. Be grateful for every invitation, introduction, adventure, possibility and opportunity. Stay positive and keep believing.  You may ask: what do you know? Three and a half years ago, I met the love of my life at the coffee shop across the street from my home. Thank you, darling, for what has been the most amazing and wonderful time of my life! Happy Valentine’s Day!
