Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I'm one of the few people I know who actually likes Valentine's Day regardless of who I'm with or not with. I understand why people have a problem with such a commercial holiday but what can I say, I'm a hopeless romantic. Irregardless of how it evolved or where it started I really do just love the idea of a day dedicated to love in all its myriad of forms. Sure it would be nice to celebrate it with someone but I guess that isn't what V-Day ends up being about for me. Love, no matter the form, is a powerful emotion. It has shaped countries, kill nations, and made the world interesting. Love isn't always nice or pretty or even healthy but most people are programed, whether culturally or genetically, to seek some form of it out no matter the cost. Love can break you or it can make you stronger. It can push you to lengths you never thought possible or tie you to the ground with unbreakable bonds. Everyone indulges in some form of love and everyone has some idea of it though no two ideas are the same. Every language has had a word for love some of which are so sacred that to even speak them is taboo. It is beautiful and crazy; a wild ride that can take you just about anywhere.

I have loved and I have lost both romantically and otherwise. I will love and I will probably lose again before I shifted off to a new life where I'm sure I will love again. So yes this holiday is a commercial nightmare with candy and hearts everywhere but remember that love is still something special, something to be celebrated.

So Happy Valentine's Day to all those I have loved before and all those I have yet to love. And a Happy V-Day to all you in LJ world. Enjoy the holiday this year, just a little bit, just for me.
