When you think about Valentine's Day, do you feel pleasure? Grief? Anger? If you are single, Valentine's Day, along with New Year are the most hated two holidays. Very simple many say they "hide" on 14 February.

Valentine's Day however, is not of lovers, but love. It has become commercialized for lovers, but it's really a time to connect with people you care. Amid the hearts and flowers that been associated with this day, the origin of the festival has been lost.

In fact, no consensus about its origin. There are many stories about man and Valentine party love. Ranging from Roman times in honor of the god Lupercus, the Emperor Claudius forbidding marriage, the Pope become a game Gelasium pagan romance in a game of saints.

You can choose the version of the origin of the festival is preferred, in the same way that you can choose how to relate to Valentine's Day. Can be a day of shame because they love and are loved by someone special, or you can honor today to recognize those who make life better. Day Valentine's Day is not about love, about love.

Here are some tips on how to make this a special day.

  1. Send letters to everybody I love you, men and women, young and old. Not only beneficiaries feel loved, he remembered what he is blessed to have special people for many in his life. For a fun flashback his school days, buying a package of colored cards that used to pass classmates or do it yourself.
  2. Honor the service people that make life better. Give cards to people in their daily lives, showing how much we appreciate them. It might be the person you Short hair or clean his house. It could be a bank teller that helps when you leave your checkbook balance. You do not have to wait for Christmas to mail him know that you appreciate the effort to bring 30 mail order catalogs a day. Think of the people who make your life easier, which is the day to remind you it (and them) that do not take for granted.
  3. Spent with friends. Specifically choose February 14 to spend with people I appreciate, but do not tell often. Take a colleague favorite work or office assistant for lunch. Or have a Valentine's dinner for friends.
  4. Send flowers to himself. Instead of being depressed or feel sorry for yourself that no man in her life to send flowers, send them to yourself. Flowers are love letters from Mother Nature.
  5. Monitor your music. If you are likely to have difficulty on February 14, make sure that during the days prior to 14 you are not listening to love songs or songs about desire for love or a broken heart love.
  6. Do not hide. Do not pretend it's not Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day to all you Di sees. Use a pin to the heart or at least wear red and white.
  7. If you are blue, not the fight. Give yourself permission to be sad is not a man of love your life. Give yourself an hour, even two, for "Pity Party." Then stop. Go ahead. Be careful not to drown his sorrow in alcohol abuse, drugs or food. There is no reason to be self-abusive just because you're lonely and sad.
