Ways To Have The
Happiest Valentine's Day Ever!
(Even When You're Alone)
thought of Valentine’s Day conjures up romantic evenings, a candlelight
dinner, and long walks with your loved one. It is, without a doubt
the most romantic day of the year. So how could you possibly be
expected to enjoy Valentine’s Day when you’re alone? Well, while
it might not be all hearts and flowers, you can still spread the
message of Valentine’s Day: Love.
Over the years, I’ve interviewed numerous people and asked them
what their favorite Valentine’s Day memory was. Surprisingly,
very few couples actually mentioned a gift or a special night
out. In fact, most of the people I interviewed remembered their
special Valentine’s Day by things they did for others. Gifts they
gave, whether they were store bought or home made, gave them an
unforgettable feeling of joy and happiness.

someone happy (especially when it’s unexpected) has a euphoric
effect on you too. It’s happiness shared twice.
Is it possible
to have a happy Valentine’s Day even when you are breaking up?
If you have a sister like Linda, you can. Linda’s sister was going
through a divorce in February, and she was heartbroken and distraught.
On that Valentine’s Day, Linda secretly sent her flowers at her
office, and signed the card, “From your Secret Admirer.”
As soon as
her sister received them she called Linda and said, “Oh my God,
you will never believe what just happened, I got these beautiful
flowers today, but I have no idea who they are from!” Linda had
all she could do to keep from laughing, and giving away her little
secret. Linda’s sister went on to say that the entire office was
trying to figure out who her secret admirer could be. Linda was
happy that she could give her sister a happy Valentine’s Day even
when she was facing unhappy times.
Yes, it is possible to have a great Valentine’s Day, even when
things are looking a little dismal. Here are a few ways you can
share your love this holiday.
