Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you are enjoying your day with loved ones, and finding the romance in your life. Even if you’re not and want to wear black today to honor the demise of your love life, take heart and know that love has all different forms. Someone in this world loves you. I promise you that!

I also want to take a minute to express to women the responsibility that I believe we ignore on such occasions. Not just Valentine’s Day, but most relationship rooted events like anniversaries. It is not solely your significant other’s job to celebrate the day by showering you with kindness in the form of gifts or other presentations of their affection. We must also do the same. Didn’t your momma ever say do unto others as you want done unto you, or something like that?

Take the initiative this Valentine’s Day, ladies, and surprise your man with a big red heart filled with chocolate. Bring him a bouquet of flowers, or donuts, or whatever he’s into. It take two to be in a relationship, and if he isn’t getting any special treatment for the day, why do you believe that you should?

Food for thought. That is all.
