Fuck You, Valentines Day!

Alas, the dreaded Valentines Day has snuck up again.  A time good men forget, and then rush out last minute to buy their women gifts.  A time when singles resent every couple they come in contact with.  I ask, “why is there so much pressure on this holiday?  Why do we torture ourselves?”  Even I’ll admit I’ve let this holiday get the best of me. 

The love of my life happens to be in NYC for the week. Thus, I am alone today.  As soon as I woke up, I went right into sulk mode, feeling bad for myself.  I didn’t even want to get out of bed.  But then I had a short meditation break (I know so “Zen” of me) and I decided to own this holiday with or without my boyfriend.  I am making a conscious decision to look as hott as possible today. Today, I’m going to fall for myself and be my own valentine.  I’m going to get my nails done - possibly go buy myself some sexy perfume.  I’m going to flirt with everyone I see and speak to. I’m going to make this day as pleasant as possible.  Disclaimer: This is not about making my fabulous boyfriend jealous. This is about feeling alive and sexy.  I’m talking about innocent flirting…

The point is, I refuse to let this day get the best of me.  I wish men and women would make everyday like Valentines Day.  The world would be a better place if we constantly surprised our lovers, had some wild sex (with someone or alone) and shared our love with everyone. That’s what life is all about…right?  So why put all the pressure on one day?  Sexy outfits, surprise gifts, awesome dates and passionate sex can happen any day of the year!
