Whether you are someone that cares a lot about your significant other planning out a special Valentine’s Day, or someone that is at the complete opposite side of the spectrum or someone that is, well, just single…there is still some importance to be celebrated during this day.22013 103 Happy Valentines Day!

 

It is one day out of the year that love is thrown into your face all around you, where it takes much more negative energy to boycott it than accept it.  You deserve to acknowledge the love in the air and selfishly soak it all up, at the very least, for yourself!  So whether you are with someone or not or just flat out don’t care…I challenge you to acknowledge the love you have for yourself that day.

 

Here are some ways to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day!

 

-Treat yourself to a bubble bath.  Taking the time out of your day to do something for yourself as well as decompressing gives you the energy to love the rest of the day.

-Cook yourself or someone you love dinner or dessert.  They say when you cook with love your food tastes better!

-Fill your day with guilty pleasures.  No need to hide them today, do or experience as many of your guilty pleasures as possible.  Free yourself and fall in love with them again.

-Make your own lotion or oil to massage in your body or someone else’s

-Take some extra time to do something for yourself that makes you feel beautiful, just remember you are doing it for yourself.  If you do it for yourself then it is that much more important to where others around you will notice as well!

-Make home made cards or a small gift for those you love in your life

-Light some candles around the house and read a romantic novel

Whatever it may be…just take the time and do something to show your love.  Taking time out of your days that you may otherwise say you don’t have time to do things, goes a long way.  It shows that you are important to yourself and others are important to you!

 

 

Specific Grand Rapids Activities:
