I'm going to refrain from calling February 14th by the name of the official holiday because that doesn't apply to everyone. I also don't like calling it Single's Awareness Day, sometimes shortened to S.A.D. which just makes everything worse, because it's not nice. So from here on out, I am going to call it Treat Yo Self Day, a term we all know and love from Donna Meagle and Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation. Just look how fabulous he is.
Anyways, there are a million and one things you can do to make yourself feel all warm and fuzzy and absolutely delighted today. Don't let the lovers bring you down. Here's what I suggest:
According to Aboutflowers.com, last year 12% of people bought flowers for themselves. Be part of the special 12%. You're independent and amazing, you deserve flowers. You don't need someone to do the deed for you. Flowers also don't have judging eyes.
Round up all your guys and/or gals who know how to have a good time and make a night of it. Sip a little booze and dance some. You're going to forget about everything that is heart-shaped because you're having a ball.
Forget necessities - it's time to treat yo self! Have you been eyeing a pair of shoes? Buy them. Wanting those new headphones? Yours now.
You might as well take the day to indulge in your favorite food or foods because why not? TREAT YO SELF.
You're a diligent worker, so I know that may cause stress. Go to the spa and get a facial, a massage, a mud bath - whatever your heart desires.
I don't know about you, but I always have a list of new restaurants I've been wanting to try. They range from $ to $$$, but today, pick the one you've been really wanting to go to and go. I don't care if you go by yourself (which is a very relaxing experience, might I add) or find some friends to join you, just go! While you're at it, dress to the nines if the place warrants it. Look good for yoself!
Regardless of how you celebrate (or don't celebrate today), I hope you have a day that fills your heart with rainbows and butterflies and puppies because everyone needs a day like that. Happy Treat Yo Self Day!
