Valentines Day: Reliving The Past Or Facing The Future?

Single for Valentine's Day? Feeling bummed? Here's how to take advantage of all the love in the air

As a dating coach for women, I am well aware of how Valentine’s Day brings out so many emotions, from ecstatic to miserable!

Radio and TV talk show hosts bash the day as nothing more than another Hallmark Holiday. But that is not true. Valentine’s Day is not just consumerism at its best. This day is anchored in some serous history.

Way back in ancient Rome, girls and boys were paired up for a period of time to honor the Goddess Juno. At the end of the event, some couples stayed together and married. Then, as the Roman Empire adopted Christianity, this practice became punishable and St. Valentine himself paid the price. He secretly married couples as was the long-standing tradition against the government and church's directive and was put to death for his actions! This is the origin of the holdiay celebrated today.

Expressing love is a truly timeless practice and an important one. Naturally, romantic love comes to mind first. But love has a much wider scope than strictly romance. Parents love their children. Owners love their pets. Friends have love for one another. I encourage my dating coaching clients to spend this day in appreciation of the braoder idea of love.

If you are one of those people who simply hates this day, could that be an indication you are reliving the past?

  • Did you have a bad Valentine’s Day in your past?
  • Are you still angry about your ex?
  • Are you down on love in general?

As a dating coach for women who are dating over 40,or dating after divorce, I have a bold suggestion. What if you could see Valentine’s Day as a gateway to a new romantic future? It’s certainly possible. Why not make the day about releasing the past trauma of relationships, disappointment from Valentine’s Days  gone by, and broken hearts from love gone wrong. Let Cupid help you make the transition to a whole new world with new romantic opportunities and the love you dream about.

This is your chance to make this powerful shift. Take it! Make the most of the loving energy that surrounds this ancient holiday. Decide right now to ride the wave of love that floats in and out of lives, connecting so many in celebration and appreciation.
Face your future filled with hope, knowing that you have chosen a new path. A journey with exciting opportunities, new people, and a fresh start on love. Here’s to you:

  • To the love that is yours
  • To the love you attract
  • To the love you have yet to create.

Now that you have taken this step forward, surely love is in the works. Believe and celebrate like love has already come to pass. Share your love with all those you come in contact with today so they might be blessed by your presence.The best way to find love is to be loving.
