Conscious Thoughts: Valentine’s Day Is A Friend Indeed

Written by Kim Knight

Valentine’s Day , friend or foe? Is the question for this issue of CTM’s Conscious Thoughts. Personally, for me it is a friend indeed. Maybe I’m bias as it’s my birthday! But that aside from that I do know that the true meaning of Valentine’s Day is not much to do with love and romance, as we have made it in modern times.

However, I do like the idea of it. Many would argue ‘oh but why is it that we need just one day a year to show love? What about all year?’ This certainly is true as well.  However, isn’t it just nice to have that special day? The one day you aim to ensure that your partner knows just how much they mean to you, and vice versa? And the romance of it all…  Flowers, chocolates, nice underwear and the like c’mon you can’t say it’s not a beautiful thing.

Call me an old romantic, a money waster, whatever you want I will always regard this day highly as a celebration day. Even if I was not born on this day, I’d still make a big song and dance about it and my partner to make them feel special. Valentine’s Day is a friend in deed, and I am a proud good ol’ romantic. Gimme hearts, candy, flowers, romantic make-up, a pretty dress and heels all of it! If you are lucky enough to date me, Valentine’s Day, guys you’ve got to be prepared to dig deep.
