How’s your February going? I hope it’s great.
I’ve got a favor to ask.
There’s an article I wrote on RELEVANT Magazine’s website called, “5 Problems With Valentine’s Day.” I wrote it because there are a lot of aspects about Valentine’s Day that make us focus only on fulfilling a cultural expectation (buying roses and chocolate, acting particularly romantic, etc) instead of remembering what love is about. Love is bigger than one day’s celebration. We can do better than that.
By the way, if you missed it, you can listen to my Heartbroken Valentine’s Day playlist on Spotify, for all of us who’ve endured lost love (which is pretty much everybody, right?).
If you’d be so kind, go over to RELEVANT and read the article. If you find anything good enough to quote to write a comment about, share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or your social media of choice. I’d be glad to hear what you think about it.
Here’s an excerpt:
5 Problems With Valentine’s Day
Some embrace Valentine’s Day because they love to celebrate love. Some dread Valentine’s Day because they feel obligated to prove their affection to a significant other. A third group of people would forgo the day altogether if it means not having to once again face a longing that’s unfulfilled.
For everyone who’s ever wanted to go to sleep on Feb. 13 and wake up on Feb. 15, here are a few reasons to ignore Valentine’s Day rather than buying into the hype…
