S. A. D. (Single Awareness Day)

14 Feb

ValentinesDay

Ah wonderful. Single Awareness Day. Good to see you again. Tis a real pleasure.

Wikipedia:

Singles Awareness (or Appreciation) Day” (S.A.D.) is a humorous holiday, celebrated on February 14 (although some prefer the 13th or the 15th to get away from the commercialism associated with the 14th). It serves as an alternative to Valentine’s Day for people who are single, that is, not involved in a romantic relationship. Some people who observe S.A.D. do so out of spite for Valentine’s Day, as a Hallmark holiday, or for other reasons. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singles_Awareness_Day)

On My Twitter Feed:

Dreading the “single awareness day” tweets from all the girls tomorrow, instead of whining, talk to a guy and maybe something will happen.

anyone who tweets “happy single awareness day!!!” tomorrow will be immediately unfollowed

Happy Single Awareness Day everyone! Raising depression in singles one chocolate at a time

If you call it “Singles’ Awareness Day,” that is why you’re single.

If you’re single.. Happy Singles Awareness Day.. If you’re in love.. I hope you choke on a chocolate.. ❤

I’m not sure why it’s single awareness day too. Are you not aware that you’re single every other day of the year? PAY ATTENTION.

Looking at my Single Awareness Day playlist and it seems like there are a lot of angry girl singers out there :p. girl power on my show yo!

Hey does anyone know any good “Happy Single Awareness Day” jokes? HAHAHAHA! Good one, you guys! Comedy is fun.

COME on people! We should be above this whine fest! Believe me, for those of you who are single out there, I know how you feel- I did not have my first valentine until I was 24. Somehow, when that day rolled around, I always found myself alone. For all the single ladies out there, know that God is not keeping something from you in spite- he has prepared that special someone for you and you know what? You’re a lot better off waiting for the right one to come along rather than wasting your time with some jerk. The cost of a wrong relationship is much higher than being alone when it’s all said and done.

Jesus as Your Valentine

Don’t waste your time getting depressed over not having that special someone in your life yet. If you let yourself think about it, the loneliness can overwhelm you.

As many hearts yearn for someone to knock on their door with a dozen roses, take this day to remember your Savior- a God who loved us more than any human being ever could. With God, you are never without a Valentine! I know you may think I’m being cliche. Lalalala, yes God loves me, blah blah. Heed my words though- it is so true! Find comfort in the following verses and get over the pity partying- it will do you no good.

1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,

Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

Lessons from the single Ladies

Take the time today to do something fun (Do not, and I repeat, DO NOT drown your sorrows in chocolate)! I always tried to plan a party with friends or keep myself busy with hobbies I love.

  • Go shopping- Buy something impractical and frivolous (but inexpensive) like glitter nail polish
  • Go out to dinner with other single friends. Make reservations, get all dressed up, and paint the town purple!
  • Cook Dessert- and worry about diets tomorrow. This year I made 12 (yes, 12) Creme Brulees. 4 cups pf whipping cream, 10 eggs, sugar, and vanilla. PERFECT!
  • Buy yourself some daisies- They’re such a happy flower
  • Make Valentines for all your friends. I especially like this idea- Healthy Gummy Bears packaged beautifully to give away. see the tutorial here: http://undressedskeleton.tumblr.com/post/42764785751
  • Get away from the commercialism: turn off the TV, put down your phone and computer. Grab a game, book, magazine- whatever your desired distraction and just ignore the holiday altogether. St. Valentine’s day was never about love in the beginning. It’s purely commercial hype. To read the true story click here: https://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/churchandministry/churchhistory/st_valentine_the_real_story.aspx
  • Watch the 5 hour A&E version of Pride & Prejudice. It’s my favorite love story of all time plus, it’ll remind you TO WAIT FOR YOUR OWN MR. DARCY! I watched it last night, by myself, while making my decadent french vanilla custards. I had a lot of fun.

**Follow me on Pinterest for many more ideas on activities, recipes, and shopping places.

And not to rub it in any faces, I just want to give a shout out to the love of my life, J. We waited a long time for each other- 24 long and lonely Valentines to be exact! He’s making me dinner, and I’m bringing dessert.
