Every year on the week or two leading up to Valentines Day & the actual day itself my social media feeds fill up with posts about being lonely, single or posts of what people in a relationship have received or are doing. I am all for sharing the love don't get me wrong, but I think keeping it simple & not over sharing is the way to go about it.. spend the time in the moment without thinking you have to share it on social media.
So I'm bringing Valentines Day up in a positive light in the hopes of helping anyone out there that might feel negatively about the day & if you do thats totally okay too.. but just listen for a sec and if it's still not for you, thats okay too, no pressure!
The past couple of Valentines Day's I haven't been able to spend with Jays as he's been away for work..the first time I was a little bummed, but then I turned my thoughts around & thought about the day as just sharing the love day (& not just on the internet). I feel sharing the day telling your loved ones you love them, spending time with a friend or family member you haven't in a while or just taking some time in the day for yourself to get a massage or do something that makes you happy!
