Valentine’s Day is not something I have ever really celebrated. As far as the commercialization of it, I’m not really a fan. Doc and I became engaged on February 23rd, and often celebrate our “Engagemaversary” instead.
However, lately I’ve been thinking a lot about expressing love for others. I don’t think I’m necessarily that good at it. I certainly don’t tell the people I love that I care about them often enough. I also think I could improve at showing my appreciation for people as well.
So this year, I’m thinking of Valentine’s Day as Love Day: a day to express love to those you care about.
I thought I’d share this idea with those of you who may be looking for a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day apart from simply celebrating your romantic relationship (or feeling like your lack of one is being pointed out).
This year I am mailing letters to people I care about. I want to show them that I appreciate them, even if I suck at showing it most of the time.
Does one day and one card make up for it? No. But it’s probably a good start.
