A Gift from the Heart
Last year, a Facebook pal, Karen, shared a great idea with me on my Facebook Page. She wrote, I'll be spending Valentine's Day giving cards to strangers with hand-written messages and affirmations (some I borrowed from you!), telling them they matter and are loved. Let’s all join Karen again this year in this invitation to share the love.
How about making this entire month a celebration of love? Remember the little packages of Valentine's you used to get as a kid? The ones you'd fill out and bring to school? Well, go out sometime today, pick up a package or two, open it up, and write the words You are loved! on each card (and any additional message you feel inclined to share). Then, put each Valentine in an envelope, draw a heart on the outside, and put them in your purse, in your car, or in your briefcase, and get ready for fun!
Throughout the day, you can leave a Valentine on the windshield of a car, in the shopping cart of a stranger at the grocery store, on the desk of someone at work, in a book at the bookstore, or on a table in your local coffee shop. Each time you leave one, silently bless the person with love, and keep going until all of your Valentine's have been given away.
I can't wait to get started and I hope you'll join me. We have so many people in our global community who will do this that I'm sure we're bound to create a groundswell of love. Who knows, maybe we'll tip the scales and suddenly inspire world peace? Now that's an intention I can wrap my arms around !
Have fun and Happy Valentine's Day!
Take Action Challenge
Along with sharing your love with others this month, do something special for your sweet Self. Buy yourself a valentine and fill it with all the things you appreciate about yourself. Or get yourself a gift, wrap it up, and give it to yourself at the end of the day (I still have - and cherish - the gift I gave myself years ago when I was single and feeling a bit sad on Valentine's Day). Write the words You Are Loved! in red magic marker, surround it with a heart, and keep it in view all month long. Trust me, you'll smile every time you see it!
