My Valentines Day

With Valentine’s Day coming tomorrow I tend to get introspective and can’t help sharing my thoughts about this day.

Anyone close to me knows that I am a total sucker for nostalgia. Old fashioned ideas of handmade cards, sweeties and suitors leave me longing to be a damsel of simpler times. At this stage in my life, Valentine's Day do not appeal to me anymore as a particular day to make a fuss over anyone. It instead created a place for me for other things like memories of a first date or a first kiss, or simply just a day to reflect on my love and appreciation for my friends, amazing family and myself.

One more thing, I think Valentines Day is a Hallmark Holiday; a corporate concoction that plays on our deepest feelings for the purpose of selling us stuff.

But why not set aside a day to celebrate love? Yes, I know. I understand it and I agree with it: But I believe that we ought to celebrate our love and the love of our life on a daily basis. I write under my nom de plume and offer up a light-hearted look at all things romantical yet tre's simple.

All these sweet things people do on this love day means a lot, but to me what really matters most is to take time everyday…in words or deeds…don’t let another minute slip by without saying I love you those who matters so much in my life not only on days like Feb. 14 but every chance I get.

Happy Valentines to you all!!!
