Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is fast approaching. If you are divorced and still single it can be a difficult if not depressing holiday. But it doesn't have to be. Kids have the right idea: Give a card to everyone. Well maybe not everyone but certainly you can find a handful of close friends to give a little card or thought to. This is a great time to remember your other single friends and tell them how special they are to you.

If you have kids make sure to remember them with a special card or small gift. Help them remember their other parent by helping them create something on their own. If you are feeling really ambitious and your ex has a significant other help the kids remember them too.

Whatever you do try to remember to look outward on this day rather than inward. It's very easy to sit and feel sorry for yourself. It's very easy to replay the Valentine's days with your ex and become sad about the divorce all over again. Stop it before it starts by thinking of others.

And don't forget yourself. Treat yourself to candy or flowers or go get a new haircut or buy yourself some sexy shoes. There ain't nothing that a new pair of sexy slingbacks can't make better.

Enjoy the day.

Happy Valentine's Day!
