The Day of Love

Hello my loves and dear friends,

Today is the day we show the special ones in our lives just how much we love and cherish them. We usually do this in the form of gifts and special meals.

I, being the former cynic that I used to be, was not fond of this day. Not because I was alone, in fact sometimes I was not and I still could not stand when this day came around. It was because I was a rebel without a cause basically. Being against something just to be against it. One could argue consumerism and of course you could, but why not instead just enjoy a day that celebrates love?

I personally LOVE love and in the past I have chased that fairy tale ending. I wanted those big romantic gestures that you see in the movies and those expectations probably blinkered me from appreciating true little moments.

Times have changed and so have I. Whilst still loving love, I now recognise the love that is around me, whether that be from my significant other, family or my friends. I even feel the love from you guys and it is wonderful.

I think there is a line in a song that states that love is all around (My mind is blank to that song right now) and it certainly is. You do not need to be with someone to be loved. Of course that is what a lot of us want and never give up finding the one for you, but in the meantime appreciate the love that is already around and aimed at you, it might be from your mother, grandmother, your great uncle Marty, your pets, even your hamster.

If you really feel like you are unloved, just know that I love the fact you are here right now, reading this and I well and truly appreciate you. You may be making somebody’s day and not even know it. That is how truly great you are.

So whether you celebrate with your partner, your friends, your dog Scooby, or you decide to go it alone, love what you are doing. Love that you are alive and love love, because it is a truly remarkable feeling in any form.

And remember that every day should be filled with love, not just today. So don’t forget to show the people you love that you care about them as often as you can.

Until next time, lots of love

-Sara

  2. hello sarainlaland …. this is kurt struble I’m the guy who writes that you like … some whacky stuff?? wull, I think so. and so must you ….so thanks again … anyway, I wanted to weigh in on valentines day because it is my favorite ‘special day’ … is it a ‘holiday”? whatever. I’ve been celebrating valentines day in my own special way and I always tell people what I think should be done on valentines day.

    First of all, I think that valentines day is not a man’s or bi-equal holiday.

    You can buy a Valentine for your man but primarily this is a holiday in celebration of the women in men’s lives. this is YOUR day to feel loved since, you love every day but men … well, you know. on valentines day the tables are turned! The woman … should feel adored or celebrated on this very very special day.

    as to my celebration, I send cards to women I know who are single and probabily not get a valentine card, I put together the most fantastic valentine boxes of absolutely fun stuff for my two grandchildren girls becky and Khloe … I want to spread as much love around to the women in my life even if she’s a cashier at Walmart!

    Jodi and I spent a romantic evening at our favorite restaurant. It was sweet and beautiful and I will always be eternally grateful to her for being the mother that she has been, a towering figure, in our family, of knowledge and common sense, strong in character; a person one could trust explicitly. .

    Men have much to be grateful for women because, we wouldn’t be who we are without women! it’s just that simple.

    It’s only fair that we men devote one single day to recognize … not just the people you are but the ‘beings’ that you are.

    I’m not sure if I added enough “I thinks” to this comment. I know I started out saying “I think”. Point is these are just my thoughts I’m sharing.

    there are no rules! it’s all about love, that’s all … With Love kurt
    (and thanks again for the ‘likes’.) .. ks
