Happy Valentines Day

Valentines Day is a point of contention for a lot of people, most say its a made up holiday, where the hell do you think the other holidays came from. I will admit that it is highly commercialized like most of our holidays and puts a lot of pressure on people if they are single or not.  To me some good can come from this holiday no matter what your feelings or relationship status is.  To me the day is a gentle reminder to show love and sometimes we all need that reminder.  I try to express love 365 days a year but it isn’t always easy and sometimes we forget.  I do feel that opening doors for a lady and saying nice things should be a part of everyday life, if your grateful for the relationship you have show it more than just one day a year.  Even if you are single this day can be used as a reminder to express love towards friends and family.  One need not be in a romantic relationship to express love to others.  I might feel this way because growing up my mother, every year like clockwork gave me and my siblings chocolate hearts and back then that’s where it was at, that’s for sure.  I was also shown early on by my mother to love myself even if nobody else did, it was a hard lesson to learn and I did not grasp it for many years but I believe that seed was planted firmly in my early years.  So even if you are all alone on Valentines Day love yourself and have a great day.


Peace Love Das
