Do I wear my heart shaped glasses this weekend? As a lady of a certain age with no date with a significant other on the docket? Do I decide to see my world as loveless, or do I appreciate the fact that the true lovelessness I was embroiled in with my Ex is now on the horizon?
Do I turn off all the commercials about love and hearts and diamonds? Or do I decide to buy my own, or do something that represents the newfound love I have for my life in some other special way?
One of the zillions of great things about being a woman is that we are wonderfully able to reach out to each other and have fun.
I googled “Gal-entine’s Day” and literally hundreds of events came up!
It seems women all over the globe are hanging out together this weekend.
Ever since the character of Leslie Knope on the sitcom “Parks and Recreation” proclaimed February 13th Galentines day, the idea of women celebrating together has become a phenomenon.
Women started gathering everywhere from gluten-free bakeries to coloring and crafting parties to potlucks to come together and have fun. Some even have bra-less baking parties! Why not?
This is a day to celebrate, not isolate.
I am urging all of you to make a plan for this weekend. Find your fun! Because who appreciates hearts and flowers and chocolates more than a group of other women? And if a Brad Pitt/George Clooney/Ryan Reynolds et.al. viewing part is suggested, well, the night is young and so are we!! So put on your heart-shaped glasses and enjoy this weekend the way Cupid intended – with love for yourself and all of those wonderful women who support you. The only empty heart there will be this weekend, is the three pound heart shaped box of See’s candy you will polish off. Just don’t be too mean to the gal who eats the last piece!
