No Man-Bashing Allowed: Your New Gal Pal Valentine's Day Plan


Valentine's Day Ideas: Spending It With Girlfriends
Need a new tradition? Enter the fun, empowering Valentine's Day Gal-Pal Get-Together.

When single girls get together on Valentine's Day, the conversation is usually centered on one or more of these three topics:

  1. Pretending they are okay with being single even though they're not.
  2. Male-bashing because they think men are the problem.
  3. Watching romance movies and wishing they were in a relationship or wondering if they will ever have "movie-love."

I would like to suggest a more positive, fun and certainly more empowering option for a Valentine's Day Gal-Pal Get-Together. One that feels better, brings out the best in you, and celebrates men, women, relationships and a great future. Are you ready?


Valentine's Day is about all about love and can include friends, family, co-workers or anyone else whose day you'd like to brighten.

Although it can be magical to be in a great relationship on this heart-shaped holiday, all too often the pressure it places on couples spawns fights, break-ups and bad memories. The prospect of disappointing someone you care about or just started seeing, inspires anxiety and can take its toll on a fun-filled day and evening.

When you're single, you get to determine how you experience Valentine's Day and you may surprise yourself by making it your best one yet. So, get some upbeat girlfriends together who want to have fun and make some great memories instead of commiserating and male-bashing.

Let me get scientific with you for a moment: the law of physics never changes; we get what we focus on. With this in mind, the best way to make Valentine's Day (or any day) a positive experience is to think about and focus on what you want rather than what you don't want. We're so programmed to think about, talk about and focus on what we don't want and don't like that this may take a little practice, but is well worth the effort.

Here's an example of how adjusting perspectives can dramatically impact your future. Maybe you are wishing you were in a relationship and spending your Valentine's Day with a special someone who you will happily be with for many years to come, but you're not. Rather than focusing on the fact that you're not, use your imagination to create a great picture of your ideal relationship and focus your attention on how it feels to already have it.

Sound silly? That's why most people don't do it even once much less consistently enough to stay in the high-frequency vibration that will draw it to them. Yes, I said "High-frequency vibration," and here's what I mean. The law of vibration is one of seven universal laws that keep the universe running smoothly and are in effect 24/7 whether we believe it or not.
