Movie Review: "Deadpool 2" is a Garrulous, Charismatic Sequel
A holiday like today seems optional. Valentine’s Day is simply like any other holiday – either you celebrate it or you don’t. Yet, when you’re single, it seems sadder then not celebrating any of the other holidays. I’m Jewish and personally, I don’t celebrate Hanukah, but I’m never sad when I don’t get to spin the dreidel or light the candles for a couple of nights. Instead people tend to give in to self pity during these cold winter months and for those that may be single, it’s Valentine’s Day that gets spun as a day of self pity. It’s a time were everyone reflects inward on their life and decides that they can only be happy with themselves if they are a part of a unit. I’m not sure why people do this. I think instead of reflecting negatively on this time of year we should learn to really embrace ourselves for who we are. When we are alone is a time for growth and development. This is time to spend on ourselves.
We can use this time, and money that we are saving, to enrich the quality of our lives. I believe we should stop feeling the self pity that is draining our happiness and think of all the positives in our lives. If you are reading this right now it means you are fortunate enough to have technology in your life. If you have technology you likely have running water, food available to you, and a couple dollars. It’s easy in this climate to feel sad and depressed about how your life is turning out when you are alone on Valentine’s Day but it’s you who is in charge of changing things so that next year you can be happily taken. Or not. Whether you make changes in your life or not, one thing to take away is that we are all in control of our own lives. Make it count.
