Its that time of the year again! Valentine’s Day is slowly upon us. I don’t know about you but growing up I hated Valentine’s Day. Truth be told, I hated it for one reason and one reason only. I was single each and every Valentine’s Day..up until this year! I always believed Valentine’s Day is a day where you receive flowers, candy, letters and gifts from your spouse topped off with a romantic evening out. I would always feel sad and depressed on this day because everyone around me would receive gifts and sweet messages and I was pretty much just there… This is all because society has commercialized this holiday in such a way that if you do not get anything that you are worthless, unloved and lonely. Wrong!
P.S – Did you know you can celebrate Valentine’s Day on any day of the year?
A few years ago my perspective on Valentines Day began to change. I realized that it is a socially constructed holiday that has turned into a moneymaking business. Now do not get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day, but do we really have to make it such a big deal?
Here is why I am here to make it simple for you. Whether you’re taken or single, you can treat yourself to a nice home cooked meal. During my junior year of college, I decided to start cooking more recipes. Fortunately for me, I landed on these quick and simple food videos. I absolutely love it. FYI- It is called Tasty! I would literally save my favorite recipes and try them in my free time. There was one particular recipe I made that took my breath away. Not only was it simple, but it was so yummy! Funny enough, I clicked it because it said “Steak Dinner for Two”. If you know me, you know that I love steak. Secondly, I made a joke to my friend and said I would learn how to make this meal so that I can cook this for my husband one day. Silly right? Anywho, this recipe turned into a dinner for one and that is what I call self-love.. okay!
