Cheer up singles!

There is no holiday more controversial than Valentines Day. Some people love it, some people absolutely despise it.  The haters claim it's a commercialized Hallmark holiday that is more about making the single people of the world feel bad, than promoting love.  The people that love it see it as a chance to be closer with their signifigant other and celebrate their love for one another.  Most view it differently depending on their relationship status.

I say celebrate Valentines Day no matter what your  status is.  Why is it that suddenly everyone who isn't in a relationship is worse off? Look, relationships can be great and being in love is one of the best feelings a person can have. However, there is nothing wrong with being single. If you're single, why not celebrate the freedom you have and your independence? Sometimes being unattached is the best thing you can do for yourself to gain perspective.

Instead of moping around or throwing I hate Valentines Day status messages on your Facebook wall, go out with friends or chill out and watch a funny movie. Appreciate the fact that you can do whatever you want whenever you want.  Keep a positive outlook. Everyone is going to find someone eventually, it just happens at different times.

People are in such a rush to get everything done these days. There seems to be a timetable that we as a society feel we need to follow.  Relax, it will happen when it is supposed to. Until then enjoy the ride that is life. Remember your Valentine will come when you least expect it.
