Happy Love Day!!! So today is not only my birthday, but also one of my favorite holidays. I know a lot of people out there think today is dumb and shouldn’t be a holiday, but let me explain to you why I love it so much, and maybe I can change your mind.
Growing up I never had Valentine’s. Yep, my birthday is on Valentine’s Day, but I’ve only had 2 Valentine’s in my life, one was my boyfriend junior year of high school and the other one is Ninja. Did that ever upset me? Sure, maybe as a kid, but as I grew older, it didn’t, and here’s why.
Today is not about couples. Sure, that may be how the world perceives it, but it is actually about so much more.
It’s about love. And not just a love between couples. It’s about loving everyone you can and showing them love in anyway that you can. Why should you have to be excluded from today just because you don’t have a significant other? Get over yourself and go out there and show someone else some love. Stop sitting around and moping and hating on today just because YOU don’t have someone to give YOU chocolate or flowers. So?! Do people without mom’s hate Mother’s Day? Do people without dads hate Father’s Day? No, so why should you get to hate today simply because you don’t have a significant other?
Here’s an idea, instead of making today about yourself, go out there and make it about loving others. Buy your teacher a card. Get your parents some candy (or better yet do the dishes). Write your grandparents a poem.
Simply show love to people. It doesn’t have to be in the form of hugs and kisses. Love can be shown in so many ways.And by the way, even though you don’t have a significant other to be your Valentine, you always have Jesus! He showed the greatest love of all for you, by DYING on a cross, for sins he did NOT commit. He did it for you, and He did it for me. What more powerful love is out there than that?!
Alright, mini rant over. Now like I said, today for me is all about love, so I decided to share some of that love with you all today by having a little giveaway! I love you all, and want you guys to feel that love today, so how about some goodies?
