is it just a day?

On the 14th day of the 2nd month each year comes a very special day to each and every individual. It is a day to celebrate love, and dwell in romance. It is none other than Valentine's Day. A day for the married, to once again renew their love and dedication to one another. A day for the boyfriends and girlfriends to spend time with each other, partaking in "inflated"  meals, specially thought up by the food and beverage industry to burn a huge hole in their pockets; mainly those of the male gender. However, it is day for the singles, as they also call this day, aptly named "Singles Awareness Day" and yes, it is a day that they become "aware" of their single-ness and one of two responses will happen. Either the lovey-dovey feeling will go around like a bad case of the flu bug, thus causing them to start pining for their "soul-mate" to come along, or, they stand by with pride, about how being single is the best thing that could have ever happened. 

Well, from my view-point, as I have a girlfriend that I cherish, love and adore, it is a day whereby one will go the extra mile to make this day special, not that we don't try to make each day spent with each other special, but really being able to put aside all business of the day and just enjoy each others' company. And yes, it is just a day, and there are 365 days every year to make your loved ones feel special, but this is the day that people always focus on. This is the day that people stop and remember, that they are not just living for themselves,  but also for the special people in their lives. 

Never fail to remember how special that wonderful person is in your life. Keep in mind, that we have every day, for the rest of our lives to make he or she feel loved. In spite of how busy we may be, stop to breathe and appreciate life and all that is special in yours. Think of the times when the love of your life made you go "aww" and when they make you think how lucky you got when they became yours. Never go a day without appreciating everything he or she has done for you. Learn to live everyday without regret, and with love and appreciation. 

For the singles, until you find the one you call "soul-mate", don't stop looking. Always know that, that person might just be the one you're having a conversation with and not know it yet. Keep your heart open, learn to take things slow, and live life as it is. Girls, keep your "walls" up, because your knight in shining armour is going to be that guy who is willing to do what it takes to climb that "wall" of yours, to be able to see you for all you are, to see how beautiful you really are. Know that keeping your heart open and your "walls" up are not the same, because if you close your heart to every guy out there, you limit yourself the chances of meeting that special guy. Yet, learn to be wise and be wary, thus keeping your "walls" up. 

Guys, learn to be a gentleman if you don't already know how. I don't want to sound like a "know-it-all" but I for one believe that girls are touched by the smallest and sweetest things. Chivalry is not dead, I repeat, NOT dead. Please, prove this phrase to be true. Treat every girl like a princess, and you might just be their prince. (All the best guys)

I love this quote "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." - Dr Seuss

So to those that think it's just an ordinary day, it isn't. It is not just a day, it is a gentle reminder. 

Shalom and tons of love.
