Happy Valentine's Day!

Monday, 14 February 2011

Happy Valentine's Day guys! I hope you're all out spending your time with someone you love. Sometimes people seem to forget that that loved one doesn't have to be a lover per se. It could just as well be a relative, a friend or even a pet. I think on this day we should celebrate the love that surrounds us in general. Whether that is to smile at the people on the same train as you, offer someone a seat or just appreciate the love you see. Some people may argue that Valentine's Day is just a commercial event, created and blown out of proportion by shops who are only interested in making as much money as possible. The same could be said about Christmas or anyone's birthday then as well right? No? Hmm.. I thought so. To love and cherish each other should be a basic act in every relationship, but in reality, when everyday life hits you hard across the face is can sometimes be hard to remember and practise it as much as you should. Valentine's day can then be a gentle little reminder of what you are supposed to do. Of course, if you are one of those people/couples who finds the time to often celebrate your love, Valentine's Day might seem a little bit overrated. A lot of guys say they don't like to feel like they are being forced to get their better half gifts etc on this particular day. But really, common? Is she/he not worth it? A homemade card/rose/massage etc can mean so much for the receiver, and who want's to be stingy when it comes to love?

So after this little preachers speech (sorry, this subject lies close to my heart) I will leave you with the lady who always seems to know who to describe what we all feel - Sade. She is one of the most talented and gracious woman in the industry accordingly to me. This particular song also means a lot to me since it is a song a special someone and I will share forever.

Lots of love on this special day,
