Ciao everyone!!!! ITS THE TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!!
Let’s face it! This is the time of the year is when we actually feel like love is in the air and all of us would want to be with the person we love. Wouldn’t it be lovely to arrange a romantic candle light dinner at your apartment, dressed in nice body con dress that flatters you (black is in my mind) and red pumps, decorated table, wine and movie and …….. the list would go on and on.
But the harsh reality for LDR couples (those who are not travelling to be with their loved one on this occasion) is we are ALONE!!! Chatting on Skype, Whatapp messages, be on line on social network sites wouldn’t be much of a help when your mind keep screaming “I WANT HIM!!! I MISS HIM!!!!” , even though it sort of eases the pain.
Keeping this in mind, I have come up with a few ideas on ‘How to Survive 24 Hours of THE Day’ – based on my experience as I am away from my boyfriend who is currently working in Austria.
Just to get over the crappy feeling that I will be alone on Valentine’s day which pretty much makes me upset, I have decided to take a short trip to visit some family and friends (who doesn’t have any prior plans for THE day). Travelling would actually help to distract your mind as you would be exploring new places and trying new things out. It doesn’t necessarily have to be somewhere far away, a quick escape to the nearest island you have not been to would be ideal and wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket too. You can either do it with fellow friends or take this opportunity to get over the fear of travelling alone, but either way always remember to be safe 🙂
MAKE YOUR OWN D.I.Y GIFT
YES! Why not take this time of the year to make a gift for your loved ones? Spend sometime thinking of something creative than the usual flower bouquets, chocolates and teddy bears that costs a fortune during the ‘love season’, make your imagination come true and trust me he/she would love it more! Besides, it would be a great way to show that you are actually putting an effort to make that someone special happy!
P/S: I am making our to-date LOVE JOURNEY Book which consist of our conversation since the day we met up till today which is an idea. Highlight important events throughout the conversation e.g when he asked you out again after your first meeting, your first fight, when he/she said ‘I LOVE YOU’ for the very first time, when you planned for your next visit etc etc. I am sure there are tons of exciting moments you can think of! You can either write those specific occasions out or print the conversations you guys have had so far to make it to a book form. Don’t be surprised with the amount of pages you can actually print!!!! ^_^ It would be a great way to remind you of some of the special things forgotten through out the year too and it will make your love blossom even stronger and it would definitely put a huge smile on your face! 😀
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR BUDDIES
Valentine’s day is a day of love and it doesn’t restrict us that on this day love can only be conveyed to the man/woman in our life. Why not take this chance to show love and care to family and friends too? Head out to the cinema, catch up for a good lunch or plan a fun day at the beach, it would not only help you to feel better, it would also strengthen your relationship with your friends! Don’t forget to snap the moments!!!
Take time to make yourself look good. Looking good doesn’t mean spending a fortune on new clothes, make up or hair do. It can be as easy as making that home-made facial mask you have been reading about from the ingredients available right in your kitchen. 100 % natural ingredients work way much better that those chemical products so why not give it a shot?! and by the time V day is over, you know you have done some good things to make yourself feel and look better and be sure to share the secret upon inquiry 😉
Take this time to stay home, grab a few books from the local book store and start educating yourself on things that you are not aware of. In today’s time, relying only on good looks doesn’t do much help. Be a well-rounded person and it would definitely make you even more impressive than you already are! Not a book kind of person? Grab educational DVDs on travel or history. Learn more about his/her culture in that sense and perhaps when the next time you guys meet, you can ‘show off’ that information which would gain you extra credits for sure 🙂
Well, I hope that this little piece of information and ideas would help you to get through THE day in a fun way.
Always remember “Distance isn’t for the fearful, it’s for the bold, it’s for those who willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love, it’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even though they don’t see it nearly enough ~ Anonymous
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY PEEPS!!!
