The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Have Your Cake & Eat It, Too!
Quote of the Day:
“You don’t need a lover in your life to have love in your life.” ~Jenny McCarthy
The Single Woman Says:
So it’s that time of year again. The holiday that has a way of making those of us without a significant other feel less than significant. The day that we all have wished, at some point or another, would fall right off the calendar and stop reminding us of just how single we actually are.
Yes, February 14th sneaks upon us every year with its stuffed bears and chocolate hearts and toy monkeys wearing red boxers that sing “Wild Thing” in the drugstore until you want to hunt down the person that just pressed the “Try Me’ button for the 10,000th time and show them the real meaning of a “Wild Thing.” The holiday of love, as it’s commonly referred as, yet there’s nothing about it that makes us feel the slightest bit loving. What’s a girl to do with herself on a holiday that is meant for two? Well, lots of things, actually. And the first thing on your to-do list is to drag yourself out of the blues and get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, because as the quote above says – you don’t have to have a lover by your side to make life a fabulous ride.
Just because you don’t have a significant other on Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the most significant person in your life – YOU! Yes, you. The fearless, fabulous female staring back at you in the mirror. What better excuse than the official “day of love” to treat yourself to a little pampering, a great movie, or a good old-fashioned Girls Night Out? After all, if YOU can’t love you, how can you expect anyone else to?
Today: Don’t forget to take a moment to celebrate yourself, your life, all the people you love, and all the people who love you. Remember – as romantic as that line from Jerry Maguire might have been, you don’t need anyone to “complete you.” You are already complete! You be the cake and let a relationship be the icing. Because after all…there’s no better day than Valentine’s Day to have your cake and eat it, too. J
