6 Powerful Quotes To Remember This Valentine's Day

To all those singles out there this Valentine's Day, this is for you.

6 Powerful Quotes To Remember This Valentine's Day
Selena Spezio

Being "alone" on valentines day can be rough. The cute couple Instagram posts and the beautiful candlelit dinners can be a tough pill to swallow. You start to doubt your worth, you see flashes of the future of you sitting in your living room with 20 cats. We've all been through it.

Here are six uplifting quotes to remind yourself of this Valentines Day.

"Single is no longer a lack of options- but a choice. A choice to refuse to let your life be defined by your relationship status but to live every day happily and let your ever after work itself out." — Mandy Hale


Just because you haven't found your "other half" doesn't mean they're not out there. Let life work itself out, and enjoy it while it's happening.

"Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better." — Albert Camus


Being single is all about working on yourself. You have infinite time to be alone and really develop who you are as a person. As the quote says, take this valentines day alone to really go deep into who you are, and who you want to be.

"Single is not a status. It is a word that best describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others." — Unknown


Now, this quote doesn't discredit those who are in a relationship. It just means that, rather than seeing single as a negative, turn it around into a positive this Valentines Day. You are here, living this day by yourself, with your own strength. You alone can accomplish just as much, and love yourself as a whole.

"Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine." — Roy T. Bennett


Just like I said in the last one, you are strong, you can live through the rough day that a single Valentines Day is. This is your day, live it like every other day, but maybe treat yourself a little more than usual. Evaluate yourself and realize you're worth. The quote says that you are capable of more than you imagine. Remind yourself that every day.

"Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change." — Unknown


Use more mind to do some good this Valentines Day. Take time to bring some positivity into your day. Read some inspirational quotes to lift your spirits. Positive thoughts really will change not only your day, but as the quotes says, "your life." If you live positively, things to change.

"If you really are going to be a happy single, you have to stop treating being single as the annoying time that you pass between relationship and embrace it. rather than focusing on what you lack, focus on what you have: You." —Natalie Lue


The time when you are single is the time that you get to devote solely to yourself. This is your time to shine and become better. Don't think of it as the waiting time till the next relationship, use it as productive time for yourself. Let yourself grow during this time, and on Valentine's Day, take yourself out on a date, you deserve it!

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
