Valentine’s day is about love. And not necessarily about loving a partner. Love for yourself, your family, and your friends! While you are not in a relationship, you have time to focus on yourself and other people & things that matter to you. Take advantage of it. Just because you don’t have a partner at the moment, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the holiday that honors love.
