Valentine’s Day was yesterday, February 14, and for those of you who don’t know, this day is usually dedicated to “lovers” and those who have “romantic interests.” For many couples it was a day of romantic tradition and adventure. For many others it was a day of disappointment for the expectations that were never met. While this day should be a celebration of love, most should not forget about the other days of the year. Truth be told, Valentines Day should be celebrated “every” day, and so much emphasis should not be placed on the one particular day of the year. Many will celebrate by going to dinner, or to a movie. While this is a great idea, trying to accomplish this fete might have been a difficult task because many of those places were crowded. For those who felt disappointed, please note that real love is based on how you feel about someone “every day of the year.” Of course your friends are going to ask that infernal question “What did you do for the day?” While most will feel compelled to answer this question out of pressure the real question is about what you are doing for the rest of your life. Valentine’s day is absolutely special, but no where near as special as the love that should be exhibited on a daily basis. It should not be about “anyone else” other than the 2 of you. When you start living up to the expectations of others then it is no longer about “just you and your partner.” As long as it is only about you both then that should be the formula for a great relationship. I hope your Valentines Day was special, and if it wasn’t, then I hope your day after was special (or the day after that, of the day after that). When you spread your love around to every day, then that love usually “lasts longer.” Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as usual I wish the very best to you that life has to offer.
