Happy Valentines Day.
To those of you who are in a relationship and taking time to celebrate today, good. Love and life should be celebrated.
To those of you who are single – What are you doing to celebrate being single today?
I am celebrating by going to Bristol today. I am so excited and blessed to be able to spend a day doing whatever I like, when I like, it is amazing and incredibly empowering. If you are single and not doing anything special today, think of something you love to do and do it. Life is for living and you only live once. Every minute that ticks on a clock, is a minute gone by and can’t be got back. Every day should be a day when you do something that makes you feel good or happy. Here are some ideas of what you can do:
1 Watch a favourite movie
2 Go to the cinema
3 Go out for a meal
4 Buy yourself a food treat
5 Go for a massage
6 Read a book just for fun – A guilty pleasure book but without feeling guilty
7 Buy yourself a cake or favourite food treat
8 Have an indoor picnic
9 Have a party
10 Dance around your home to your favourite music
11 Run a bath and put candles around it and use your favourite bubble bath
12 Buy yourself a box of chocolates
13 Buy yourself some flowers or a plant
14 Buy yourself some new clothes
15 Buy yourself some new music
16 Buy yourself your favourite aftershave or perfume or a new one you haven’t tried before
17 Take yourself out for the day
18 Take a mini break
19 Visit the zoo – You can use waterproof garments
20 Visit an aquarium – I am doing this one today
22 Go go-karting
23 Go to an indoor climbing centre
24 Visit a spa
25 Buy yourself any gift you like
26 Write a list of positive things about yourself, what you love about yourself and what makes you happy – Read it daily from now on, believe it and take action on the things that make you happy
Please feel free to add your own.
I love the feeling of magic and being special and I take it upon myself to create that kind of day for me. There is nothing stopping you from doing the same.
I am currently on the train and have already started my celebration with some no added sugar jungle fruit shapes.
I am going to the aquarium in Bristol, to the cinema there, and for two thai meals. People ask me if I feel strange doing things like that by myself, I say, “absolutely not.”
I enjoy making myself happy and you can do the same.
One guy on my Facebook page commented that I am breaking the rules, I replied – “That is rather negative – There are no rules, other than the ones we set for ourselves” – That is the rule I always live by.
Enjoy your special day.

These are great suggestions for anybody! I’m married but still sometimes want to do something different, celebrate a recent success, or take myself out for an Artist Date, as Julia Cameron suggests for creativity. I’ll keep your list as a resource for ideas. Thanks.
Hi Susan, I am glad you find my list helpful. I like the idea of an Artist Date, how does that work?
Sandra, For an artist date you’re supposed to go out and do something alone to feed your creativity. Julia Cameron wrote “The Artist’s Way” (and other books) and points out that we need PLAY in our lives in order to be creative.
I agree, and will pass that on to my cuddle toys whom I have the pleasure of looking at every night, and my furry friends who always like to play.
I think it sounds grand!
Thanks Marilyn, I had an awesome time.
Enjoy your day Sandra, have a great time and I hope the terrible weather doesn’t hamper you in any way 🙂
Thanks Sherri, I had a blast in Bristol. I am having another day of fun today
