I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It is officially Valentine’s Day week. It is a week to be filled with love, and joy. To be honest though, I have never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day until now.
Why I Now Love Valentine’s Day
I can’t really pin point the reason why I’ve never been a huge fan but it was never a holiday I truly enjoyed or celebrated. Even when Hunter and I started dating it didn’t change my mindset much. This year though my heart feels different about it.
For years, I felt this was just a time to celebrate with your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife etc. Though this is definitely true it is also a time to celebrate and share kindness and love to all the people in your life. It is a week to specifically be intentionally with those you love. Showing your parents how thankful you are for them, giving your sibling a hug, sending your grandparents a card to let them know how much you love them and so on.
It is also a week to remember to show kindness to those you don’t know. Maybe it’s buying coffee for the person behind you in the Starbucks line, stopping to give water and food to a homeless man or woman on the side of the road, or maybe it’s just leaving a note to your waiter to let them know how awesome they are. A simple act of love and kindness can go a long way!
So this week, whether you are a long time Valentine’s Day fan or maybe you are like me and have never really celebrated it, let’s choose to love it this year! Let’s be intentional, and show kindness, and love to all of those around us!
YOU ARE SO LOVED!
