Many of my Single girlfriends dread Valentine’s Day.  They feel either disappointed, embarrassed or just sad that they don’t have a special man to share the day that celebrates love.  I wish they could see Valentine’s Day the way I do… a day to celebrate all types of love-anyone you love, anyone who loves you, and of course, the love you have for yourself.

I spent this Valentine’s day calling up family and friends to wish them a ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ and that I love them.  I also took some time to relax and pamper myself.  Finally, I hit the town with some of my best gal pals for dinner, drinks and lots of laughs.  It was one of the best Valentine’s Days ever.

Like many Single women, I too would enjoy having the right man in my life for Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year.  I hope I meet him, but there is a chance I may not.  In the meantime, I refuse to put being happy on hold.
