Valentine's Day

February 14. The Heart month celebration. I enjoy this special day with my immediate family as we go swimming. Nothing can beat the joy of being with your family during this time even with or without a special someone. Bonding with my nephews at the pool side makes me feel young and lose tons of muscle nodules caused by stress. Actually the celebration coincided with my father's birthday celebration last Feb. 13.

If we are to contemplate, there are too many things that usually happen in our daily lives that we need to be thankful for and call for some celebration even the simplest accomplishment in life. Normally single people, especially women of my age, tend to be stressed when this special day arrives and no one is beside them to send special notes, flowers or even chocolates.

Sometimes it promotes loneliness and depression for those who think it's important to have someone special on Valentine’s Day. It is the changing trend nowadays that makes the occasion turn out to be like a masquerade as it has become too commercialized. Though it is most women’s hopes and dream to have someone dear to hold, still there are too many fascinating details to celebrate this occasion without being pathetic and spending that much. Remember, even though it is not Valentines Day, everyone is encouraged to show and express love every single day of your lives to the people most important to you. To all my dearest, Happy Valentine's day!
