I admit, I’m hard to shop for and I’m not the easiest to buy for Valentine’s Day. I really never think that I am hard to shop for. If I was asked I could tell anyone a good three or four reasonable things I’d love, but I’ve still been told I’m hard to shop for. Why? Partially because if I truly NEED it, I’ll just go get it. Also because I’m a mom. I know this sounds like an excuse to anyone that isn’t a mom but it’s the truth. I’m a mom and because of that I put my kids first. If someone asks me what I’d like I tend to say things I’d like for the kids. However, there are many things I’d like they’re just not very tangible.
I am sure many men find Valentine’s Day tiresome. Why? Because for a lot of men, I won’t say most, I definitely won’t say all, but for a lot of men all the work for Valentine’s Day is on them, and often times they are totally forgotten.
It is easy as we get carried away with life. As we go through day to day we tend to forget about taking care of our own needs. I propose to you to take some time for yourself. Here are 5 ways to treat yourself as Valentine’s Day approaches.
As Valentine’s Day approaches I see, like every year, ads, on social media, on commercials, and in stores, pitching gift sales for your loved ones. Yes, it is very important to display your love and gratitude for the people around you but I tend to argue that just once a year, on a holiday, is an excuse. It should be done year-round. What I fail to see around this time of year is the importance of self-love and I think that is a huge failing to society as a whole.
