‘‘Love is in the air’’. As February comes, it’s seen all over. No one is ready to be behind in this race. Feels like there’s a healthy competition going on everywhere. Advertisements are endorse on a large scales then be it for renowned airlines, jewellery shops, newspaper, magazines, restaurants, garments, gift shops, gyms or malls. Offers everywhere. Same hoardings with red theme and hearts around. Internet and media are also seen playing a major role to promote all these.
Now this has left me thinking, do we need only one day or a special day in a year to express our love? Will it prove our love and relationship? Will it make it stronger by spending all our time, energy and money on Valentine’s Day? Does all who participate by gifting roses, chocolates and various gifts are able to prove their love, or just do it for the sake of doing it to sustain in society? How many are genuine with their intentions?
According to me, love cannot be bound or expressed on a particular day combined with goodies and a dinner date. Love is a divine feeling. We need to feel and live with it for it. It’s a lifetime commitment, how can one day or a moment be enough for it! If you love someone truly make every day a valentine day, every moment special, why restrict it to just one day! True love is not only gifts and dinner dates. It cannot be materialistic. It’s beyond all this. Keeping the one you love happy is important. Provide security by all means. Respect the person and give equal right to the opinions and weightage to decisions in life.
How can we neglect the other aspect for those who all are single or heart broken and alone? How must they be feeling? I am sure they go into a deep shell on such day. What level of struggle they must be doing fighting themselves hard to pass this day out? Would like to give an advice here to all of them to be ‘’happy’’.
By being happy they can survive and conquer not only this day but their entire life. I know it’s easy said than done! Start believing, happiness starts within ourselves. The day we will learn to love ourselves, we will learn to be happy. Many of us misunderstand life, by thinking and making firms decisions for future. We should not trade our happiness for what we think we need. Materialistic things can never make us happy because they are temporary and limited. Don’t spend money to impress people, when you don’t like it. No doubt we become happy by what we give. But don’t get the two confused!
Let’s be creative towards our freedom and passion. It will surely reveal great rewards. Do not allow precious moments to pass-by full of unnoticed experiences. Don’t let the charm and hype of Valentine’s Day make you feel empty, leaving you hungry. Be happy, because you are the greatest undiscovered adventure of your lifetime.
