Happy St Valentine's Day everyone. Ok. It is not a day that is universally liked or admired. Like may things it has become a major money making industry which is a shame. That is the world we live in though and it is how the success or failure of many things is measured. The same can be said of Christmas. 
Underneath all the glitz and show business and shiny wrappings there is something at the heart of it though. This something may be tarnished and, even, damaged but is still there under layers of trappings. Whatever the shortcomings of St Valentine's Day in 2015 you can still find a kernel of hope if you dig deep enough. 
You may think of it as love. :heart: You may think of it as kindness. :hug: Maybe just a healthy respect for other human beings and their feelings. A chance to shine. A chance to be a better you. A chance to show you care. 
I hope you can use these days to be that better person and to find that you like it. Maybe you can be that better person every day. (This is beginning to sound like Bill Murray at the end of Scrooged):P 

So take the opportunity to let those you care about know that you care about them. Life can be short so live each day as if it is your last. If there is a special someone you have not yet let know how you feel about them ........go on.......take a chance. Who knows how that could develop? Maybe good, maybe not. If you don't take the chance you may never find out. 
If there is a special someone you have maybe stopped telling over the years, go on, tell them again. Let them know they are still so special to you. :heart: 
Life is about people, feelings and experiences.

On that note, I would like to share with you some people and their art. These are pictures or words I have found in the last two months or so that have made me smile, laugh, think or just feel good. Please enjoy them and maybe pay someone a visit and leave them a comment that could make their day :heart: :huggle:
