Single?? How you can get the most out of Valentine’s Day
If you don’t love yourself, nobody else will. Not only that – you won’t be good at loving anyone. Loving starts with the self. Dr. Wayne Dyer
Instead of finding someone for Valentine’s Day, why not focus on the things you love – it’s guaranteed to make you feel great! Avoid the mistake of taking the first person that comes along so you’re not alone on Valentine’s Day (which may lead you to feeling lonely, empty and unfulfilled – even when they’re in the room), by filling the void discovering the things you love. In doing this, you will meet people with similar interests and before you know it – you could have the man/woman of your dreams!
The easiest way to find out what you love (or what makes you happy) is to start a list of things that make you feel good. For example:
– Smelling perfume in a department store
– Taking my dog for a walk
– Setting and achieving goals
– Making people laugh
– Sitting in the sunshine
– Keeping a journal/blog
– Host a dinner party.
Once you have your list together, you could arrange to do some of the things you love on Valentine’s Day. It will make you feel great!
Another way to really discover yourself is to write out nine of your values on nine different sheets of paper. Then prioritise them in order and look at each one carefully. Ask yourself why you selected that value, why it’s so important to you and why you put it where you did.
You could also make a list of things that you love about being single. Think about all the things you can do with your freedom, that your now taken girlfriends can’t be doing. Write a list of all the things you love about being on your own.
The key is to keep yourself busy by trying to discover yourself and the things you love. Trust me – before you know it, it’ll be 15 February!
