Valentines Day is a fabulous time of year…..unless you don’t have a special someone to get chocolate, buy flowers for, or pick out the perfect card…then it can be a little uncomfortable possibly, or even frustrating? There are a range of emotions tied up with this holiday.
However, it is a perfect time that you CAN Sweeten Up Valentine’s for Someone Else with service and helping.
We can all find ways to look outside our self and see who might need a little love.
The promotion of Valentines seems to be that everyone MUST have a sweetheart, or life is over, you have failed, and all is lost.
Marketing at its best.
However, whether there is a sweetheart or not in our life, everyone could use a friend, an act of kindness, a small thoughtful gift; so let’s take this opportunity to spread the love!
There are those who are feeling lonely at a loss this time of year, and even isolated. So let’s see how we can do some good!
Who do you feel impressed that needs a kindness; and remember, age does not matter?
Someone came to your mind didn’t they???
I think so!
Don’t ignore it, and if no one did, then think a bit longer…..
When you do have a name or two or three, here are some ideas that might help spread the enthusiasm of the holiday to last all year long.
We truly are defined by how we handle difficult situations, and this may be a challenging holiday for us.
If so, let’s put on a happy face, choose a way to serve (possibly different people or the same person) at least once this week, or maybe even every day if it’s a small act, such as anonymously dropping off a little treat.
You will be amazed at the difference you will feel, how your own burden will be lifted and how you will look forward to each day with excitement and joy.
