Happiest Valentine's Day ever, alone!

Friday, February 01, 2013

The thought of Valentine's Day conjures up romantic evenings, a candlelight dinner, and long walks with your loved one.

So how could you possibly be expected to enjoy Valentine's Day when you're alone? While it might not be all hearts and flowers, you can still spread the message of Valentine's Day.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our daily chores, that we often forget that children need to be remembered too.

Geoff was working on a resort property trimming trees, and noticed there were two smitten teenage girls sitting on the balcony watching him while he was working. Geoff knew he would be finished on February 13, and thought he would surprise them with a dozen red roses on Valentine's Day, and signed it,

"The Tree Trimming Guy."

The girls were thrilled, and were still talking about it four years later! Geoff ranks that day as his all time favourite Valentine's Day.

Making someone happy, especially when it's unexpected, has a euphoric effect on you too. It's happiness shared twice.

Is it possible to have a happy Valentine's Day even when you are breaking up?

If you have a sister like Linda, you can. Linda's sister was going through a divorce in February, and she was heartbroken and distraught. On that Valentine's Day, Linda secretly sent her flowers at her office, and signed the card, "From your Secret Admirer."

As soon as her sister received them she called Linda and said, "Oh my God, you will never believe what just happened, I got these beautiful flowers today, but I have no idea who they are from!" Linda had all she could do to keep from laughing, and giving away her little secret. Linda was happy that she could give her sister a happy Valentine's Day even when she was facing unhappy times.

You can:

* Send a heartfelt Valentine Card to someone who has really inspired you and tell them how much they mean to you.

* Make a home-made Valentine Card and send it to your favourite relative you haven't seen in a while.

* Make a Valentine's basket and send it to a family that has gone through a difficult time and sign it, From Your Guardian Angel.

nTake your little niece, nephew, or cousin out for icecream.

Giving is the fastest way to feel good about yourself.
