Why are we only celebrating Valentine’s Day once a year? What makes us wait a whole year to tell others we love them? Shouldn’t Valentine’s Day be celebrated every day?
We were to take those Valentine’s Day rituals; those conscious acts of giving of ourselves; and that feeling of love into every day.
My husband and I made a conscious decision a few years ago not to focus on Valentine’s Day. Yes, it does sound rather extreme.
Rather than get caught up in the marketing hoopla that Valentine’s Day has become, we choose to celebrate it every day by our words and actions. It is consistent action throughout the year, as opposed to a big shebang one day a year. Sometimes those displays of affection are small moments to cherish. Other times you can be swept away by the sheer enormity of it all. Either way, it is the intention behind the act.
And so it can be for you too…
What’s stopping you from spreading those Valentine Day rituals out across the year? What about celebrating your love on the 14th of every month? What about choosing a spontaneous way every day to show your love.
Don’t wait a year to build up the courage to tell someone you love them.
Every day presents an opportunity to show someone you care.
