Happy Love Day!
I have always been enthralled with love ever since I discovered the word and its meaning as a little girl.
The thought of people behaving with kindness and patience, and speaking words that support and uplift each other always makes me feel good inside. That is why Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. On this day I get to exploit my love for my man and still be genuine, and it’s all good!
There is something exhilarating about thinking of your significant other as you browse shelves of eye-catching cards filled with love proclamations (think Hallmark); being mesmerized by the sights and smells of chocolate as you walk through the door of a candy shop (think Fannie Mae), and squeezing teddy bears to make sure the fluff is just enough (think of any store that sells cards and candy). And flowers. Can’t forget the flowers. Red roses are my favorite!
Not everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day, and that’s fine. Do you.
But for those of us who bask in the ambiance of punch drunk love on this day, I say dive deeply into it. Embrace it. Wrap yourself in it. Wear it with the attitude when donning your most prized accessory or treasured attire.
Sistahs, pout your ruby red lips. Bat your eyelashes. Flip your hair. Strut in your stilettos.
Brothas, sport your fresh haircut or shaved head. Flex your muscles. Flash your pearly whites.
It’s LOVE day! Do whatever makes YOU feel good.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
