14 Reasons to Celebrate Your Singleness This Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is upon us, and few things send single women running for the Ben & Jerry’s faster than the thought of spending another February 14th alone. From the obnoxious singling gorillas in silk boxers (I mean, c’mon…what self-respecting man (or ape) still wears silk boxers?!?) that assault our ears at Walgreens to the obnoxious “I love my hubby soooooooo much!” posts that wage war on our Facebook feeds…let’s face it: Valentine’s Day is not an equal opportunity holiday.
That’s why I wanted to flip the script a little bit this year and provide single ladies everywhere with a little positive motivation for the next two weeks. If Valentine’s Day is the “Holiday of Love,” isn’t this the perfect time to love yourself a little more fiercely? To remind yourself of how strong, and spirited, and independent you are? To celebrate yourself and your life a little? So if you’re sad and mopey and struggling with the fact that another Valentine’s is dawning and you’re not yet a party of two…here are fourteen reasons why no one deserves your love more than YOU! (Every day I’m going to replace each reason with a quote image. Feel free to grab & share!)
And if you’re STILL struggling to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day…take a second to pre-order MY BRAND NEW BOOK, I’ve Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has: Mishaps & Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After, in stores March 11th. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and remind you that Happily Ever After is a journey – a wild, beautiful, colorful journey – not a destination.
