Single on Valentine's Day? Do this.

Single on Valentine’s Day? Me too! No matter how you feel about it, I encourage you to do this…

Make a list of every single person you’re grateful for. What relationships do you have that light you up and make you smile? Who are you excited about in your life? It could be family members, pets, friends, coworkers, that person at your favorite coffee shop who knows you by name…anyone!

Give gratitude for these relationships, and remember that one person does not complete you nor define you.

When I was going through my divorce, I kept it a secret for several months…including on Valentine’s Day. It was the most awkward moment when I ran into a coworker outside of Whole Foods at 7pm, prime time for a romantic, overpriced dinner. When she asked why I was there, I lied…and I’m not a liar! It was one of the hardest Valentine’s Days for me to say the least. I wish I had known then what I know now.

It’s going to be OK. 

You are going to be OK. You are not alone. You are going to look back on this day, this month, this year, and think WOW. I was so strong! And look at me now! I’m stronger and happier than ever before!

From one single gal to another, have a beautiful day celebrating yourself and all the people that you allow in your inner circle. 

I love you.
