10 reasons to celebrate your singleness this Valentine’s Day

VALENTINE’S DAY is upon us, and few things send single women (and men) running for the Ben & Jerry’s faster than the thought of spending another February 14th alone.

With social media gloating – from the soppy Facebook status’ to the Instagram photos of bouquets, chocolates and teddies – there has never been more of a need to provide single pringles everywhere with a little positive motivation.

If Valentine’s Day is the ‘Holiday of Love’, then isn’t this the perfect time to love yourself a little more? To remind yourself of how strong, spirited, and independent you are? To celebrate yourself and your life a little?

Here are 10 reasons to celebrate your single status, and remind you why no one deserves your love more than you.

  • Because whether or not love arrives, you are going to thrive.
  • Happiness, worth and self-confidence are not dependent on your relationship status.
  • You can indulge in your inner workaholic – and not be ashamed of it.
  • Celebrate ‘Me Time’, by treating yourself, whether it be a gorgeous soak in a bubble bath, cooking a delicious meal or curled up with a book or favourite film.
  • Money that would be spent on a meal or gift to your significant other, can be spent buying yourself something you’ve wanted for ages!
  • Treat Valentine’s Day as ‘Appreciation Day’ – appreciate the love that your friends and family give you.
  • Grab your single friends and celebrate together. Take inspiration from Sex and the City, and have a laugh whilst sipping cocktails or indulging in eating tasty food and watching female empowering films.
  • Because you will love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.
  • Celebrate: you don’t need someone to complete you, fix you, validate you or give you purpose: you do that all yourself.
  • Before you are ready to wear a diamond, you want to become one.

So lift your spirits; being single on Valentine’s Day can be great – plus, it’ll be February 15th before you know it.
