It’s Valentine’s Day today, and as I sit here writing this article, I glance over at the beautiful bouquet of flowers, sent by my loving husband with a sweet card attached. I had a slow morning so I indulged myself by watching Good Morning America and The View. On GMT, an adorable young couple got engaged on the air – he visiting her first grade classroom secretly, she surprised and teary eyed, then thrilled, they so obviously in love.
Happy Valentine's Day! Today is the day when couples celebrate the love they share for one another. It's a huge national holiday, and there are a lot of expectations riding on February 14 – what gift to give your partner, where to have a romantic dinner, what to do after dinner...

With Valentine’s Day here, is your love life a bit flat? Do you spend more time in your sweats than you do in sexy lingerie? Are your feet more at home in those old pink fuzzy slippers than they are in sexy pumps? Are you stressed because if you don’t plan for romance, none will happen at all? Don't worry because you are not alone!
So, you’ve picked out the perfect 12 red roses, and scheduled their delivery; dinner reservations are set for 8 o’clock. In the midst of picking out the perfect card for your significant other, you begin to consider everything that you’ve been through together, and there’s no card that really fits your current situation. These days, the happiness you once felt, is peppered with confusion and concerns for your collective future. But, that’s okay.
You don't have plans for a romantic Valentine's Day celebration with a beloved partner? Don't let that stop you from finding love today. How? By shifting your Love Focus. Instead of focusing on the romantic love you lack, which steals your joy, stay focused on giving thanks for all the love in your life. Celebrate love on V-day by thanking people who've made a difference in your life, by sharing smiles and friendly words with people you see in your daily routines, by being kind and loving to yourself.
I know. It’s that holiday again. The one where it seems like all of the women in the office are getting a big, gorgeous bouquet of flowers except you. Where you feel like there may as well be a big sign over your desk with an arrow pointing down saying “I don’t have anybody to send me flowers!”

But…because the world around us sends us messages about Love today, telling us we’re lucky if we HAVE a loving partner, and we’re lacking if we DON’T, I wanted to touch base and ask you something important…
Mary's husband walked in the door with a beautiful creamy box wrapped up with a red ribbon. He twinkled his eyes as he lovingly leaned over and gave her a kiss and presented her with her favorite chocolates. It was their Valentine’s Day tradition, and she always loved him for it. She also hated him for it. She knew that one bite would lead to devouring the box, regretting it and craving for more sweets in the weeks ahead. But, she couldn't wait to sink her teeth into that dark, rich chocolately raspberry filled nugget hiding under the lid!
Is your marriage or relationship lackluster? Are you hoping a night of hearts, chocolate and flowers will add a little romantic boost to your union?
