V-Day is normally the time where I let my cynicism hat out of it's box, put up the sarcasm bunting, and give free reign to everyone's favorite fictional detective Dan Landis.
But today is different. Today, I want to share with you some ways you can make Valentine's Day a successful day.
Whether you're single, in a relationship, about to be out of a relationship, or have no interest in letting society define you, this post is for you.
Five Ways To Win At Valentine's Day!
5) Talk to somebody
I know today will be busy, you're either planning an intricate outing with someone special, trying hard not to cry yourself to sleep tonight in a flurry of ice cream and reflection or grumbling about how even Waffle House is booked and you wanted waffles.
But, how about taking a moment and remembering the special people in your life. Your folks aren't getting any younger, grandma and grandpa won't be around forever, and if you're like me, there's several aunts and uncles (and great aunts and great uncles) who were always there for you. So, how about giving them a call. Maybe sending them a text or email. What about taking a moment to reach out make someone's day with the sound of your voice and a sincere "I love you!"
4) Warm Hugs
You just can't go wrong with giving a nice warm hug. Unless you don't like touching people, or people touching you. Or you're hugging a porcupine. But, just remember kids, porcupines need love too.
