Create Your Own Spontaneous Valentine’s Day

Perhaps it’s because no matter what stage of my life I was in, I was usually single on Valentine’s Day.

This is not a pathetic plea for empathy.

Life just worked out that way.

  • I’ve never been married
  • When I was dating, more often than not, we split by V-Day

Hmm, do you think that was a strategic, money-saving tactic of boyfriends past?

Anyway, I digress.

I never felt like I needed flower and candy vendors to dictate holidays for me.

Why not create your own spontaneous Valentine’s Day?

When You Care

Who says we need a sanctioned day for feeling the love?

Being someone who hates to follow the crowd, I vote for spontaneity.

  • Say I love you to friends and family just because
  • Send flowers to cheer someone’s day
  • Use snail mail for an actual, handwritten note
  • Send a treat (or tweet) of thanks

Do it whenever – wherever – and however – you choose.

Now, that’s something to celebrate.

Good plan, Cathy – every day is a good day to show someone they’re appreciated.
