15 Quotes to Lift You UP When Valentine’s Day is Bringing You Down.

February 5, 2019

The ever so looming VDay is right around the corner. If we could go back in time, let’s say three years ago, that Abby would be needing a swift kick in the rear. So here it is for anyone else who may need it.

Being single isn’t EASY around this time of year. Why? Because society has told us that Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate your sig. other and if you don’t have one, you must be a sad and lonely person. But fear not! Society is WRONG. VDay is here to celebrate YOU! And you are strong, beautiful and the opposite of lonely, because you have US!

SO, don’t go hiding from Valentine’s Day, like Bart here!

Embrace the day. The day is for you to give yourself some much needed love. And don’t forget about everyone else you love. The only thing that not having a sig. other on VDay means is you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a present. (Not saying you HAVE to if you do have a significant other but you get it!) Use this day to appreciate those around you. And to practice a little Self-Care, because February is all about Self-Care!! ♥
