Three Ways to Celebrate Yourself on Valentine’s Day

On February 14, on Valentine’s Day, there will be quite a bit of celebration. Why February 14? Have you ever wondered? “Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine,[1] is celebrated annually on February 14. It originated as a minor Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. It has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world through later folk traditions: the bow and arrow cupid.”

On Valentine’s Day, there will be some happy hearts and some not so happy hearts. Some women will wait to dear life contemplating if they will be treated special on that Day. Some will recite pleasantries, and others are going to experience sadness.

Some men will tell you about a human-made holiday and how they don’t celebrate, and some women’s hearts will sink. However, whether you are celebrating it with someone or not, you matter, and what I have learned about building myself up and when I focus my attention on someone else builds my esteem.

How can we prepare our minds to Own our Power? It starts with how we feel about ourselves. “In psychology, self-esteem is a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. In other words, how much you appreciate and like yourself. Self-esteem is seen as a personality trait, which means that it tends to be stable and enduring.”

Three positives about yourself:

1. Make a list of the beautiful things about you and celebrate you. You matter.

2. Create your own Valentines’ Day by inviting a group of friends to a virtual call. If you have someone and you have some single friend’s in your life, celebrate them. You set up a virtual call, send a card, but spread some love on this Day.

3. Treat yourself to a meal a feast. If you don’t want to go out, cook a special meal, light candles, smell goods, and watch your favorite movie. You can even watch a particular film with someone virtual.

Call to Action: Celebrate one thing you did to build you and someone else.
