"You have to spend it on a self-lovin’ session. Go do whatever the fuck it is you feel like doing that day. Wanna splash some cash on clothes? Do it. Wanna eat junk food all day? Do it. Wanna stay in and just watch TV? Guess what, Valentines day is a day traditionally dedicated to showing the one you love most in life that they are special to you, and the one person in life you should love the most, before anyone else, is yourself."
I consider Valentine's Day an opportunity to celebrate all the things I love about myself. I go for a run with my dog (the only truly loyal boy in my life) to boost my endorphins and celebrate the things my body can do; I take an extra long shower so I can deep condition my hair and enjoy the steam; I put on makeup and clothes that make me feel confident; I treat myself to a movie I've been dying to see or try a new recipe for dinner to remind myself that I can enjoy my own company.
You can do all the things couples do, or do none of them at all and just hole up with Netflix. The important thing is doing something that reminds you why you love yourself, because you're awesome. Self love is the most important love.

"LOVE YOURSELF! If you don’t have a s.o., treat yourself and really indulge in that self love that we so often forget. Gather up your pets and maybe some friends, have your fav indulgent foods, and stay in or go out. But a nice new outfit or fancy dinner. And don’t forget to remind your besties that you love them, too!"
