Seeing Valentine’s Day decorations everywhere even before February 14 reminds us it is time to focus and do extra mile things for our special someone. It may sound cheesy but couples will be busy choosing the perfect gift like a piece of jewelry, chocolates, and flowers. Also, everyone’s busy booking for the most romantic places and restaurants in the city, and many other things just to make their valentine’s day the most unforgettable one.
And so, it would end up on a great question on our efforts regarding the remaining 364 days of the year.
Empty your headspace- to re-validate your ideas
During this day, it encourages lovers to show different efforts and gestures of love. It takes time and preparation to ensure everything will be seamless to happen because obviously, the fairy godmother of your own story is you.
As modern life is evading the present world, it is now becoming a hindrance in order not to channel your romantic side.
Things like hectic working schedules, family commitments, kids, and bills are coming in your way. Sometimes it is rarely to pop up in your mind the thought “What would be the best thing to do on February 14?” and you may also Google the “perfect gift for her”. But time is running out to come up with the best result, but despite all the efforts, we sometimes ended up on a poor gesture and the worse is, February 14 is almost knocking, yet you got nothing.
No more “I’ll make it up to you next Valentine’s Day,” mindset
Yes, you have read it right. Your daily activities may exhaust you literally, but it should not be the reason to forget your special someone during the day. You can still show your gestures by sending greeting cards or a bouquet to the right at their home or office, especially nowadays there are apps available online to do the job for you, and make things convenient.
Love is a risk worth taking
Quoting the Chinese philosopher Lao TZU: “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone gives you courage.”
Loving is being vulnerable
Showing your love for someone that is very special to you, showing how important they are to your being makes us all vulnerable. Making a romantic commitment to another being is how it makes us off guarded to all the risk of being hurt, and let us able to experience other feelings like jealousy, fear, and euphoria- which is very normal to a human. All the risks we might eventually try to keep away from.
CS Lewis summarizes the best in his book The Four Loves when he quotes: “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken.”
No matter how simple or lavish your plan will be on that day. Remember to enjoy Valentine’s Day and pour as much love upon your loved ones as you can. Above all, when you wake up the next day let it become a reflection that Valentine’s Day must celebrate every single day.
Love is a continuous verb to last forever.
