Valentine's Day encourages us to share love, but for those of us who are single, it’s all too easy to find yourself feeling unloved & unwanted on this holiday. Instead of wallowing in a pint of ice cream on the couch while checking your couple-friends social media posts, spread the love to those in need & watch love multiply in your life!
Here are a few suggestions how:
“Volunteer more” seems to always be one of my New Year's resolutions. Check it off the list & spread love to those in need this Valentine's Day! Call up your local refugee center & see if you can host a dinner or clothing drive for the newly arrived. Bring a box of chocolates & games to a local senior center. Give some extra attention to groups who are often neglected, and watch the love come back to you 10-fold.
Show Some Love To Your Core 5
Spread some gratitude & appreciation for your ride-or-dies: Your parents, siblings & best friends that you could not live without. Tell them what they mean to you in a note or ask if there is any labor you can do to help them. Celebrate the deep love relationships you have in your life.
Make a point to give out 14 compliments to people throughout the day. We should never underestimate the power our words have. A compliment can turn someone’s bad day upside down, and evoke feelings of gratitude, appreciation & happiness in you!
Another great idea is to pay it forward by supporting a charity organization! Every pair of FLEEPS purchased donates money to supporting girls' education.
Start spreading the love today!
