If you’re in a relationship… it’s a special, exciting day! Think of all the wonderful, kind, loving things you’ll do – choose one and decide to do it every day from now on.
Put a little Valentine’s Day in every day.
Maybe it’s beginning each day with a smile, a hug and an “I love you.” Or replacing one indifferent or distant habit with love and affection. Welcome them at the door or ask about their day and really listen.
One simple, small thing to add affection and care all year round.
Single, On Your Own?
Give yourself big hugs all day and enjoy the warmth of each loving, happy hug. Feel love in your heart, make a special effort to radiate it to everyone around you.
Enjoy, appreciate and delight in who you are and what you do. Resolve to do this at least once a day, every day from now on.
Enjoy and relish your own company, plan to take yourself out for a nice meal another, quieter day. Enjoy a solo adventure.
There’s a marvelous freedom and power in being happy on your own, in creating and carrying your own happiness within you where ever you go.
Reject myths saying we need a “relationship” to make us happy and complete, messages that make singles feel defective, needy and dependent. They say we should look to others for happiness when its true source lies within ourselves.
It’s the loving relationships and loving communities we create around us daily that bring expansive, enduring joy. They can easily be extensive, everywhere.
We can’t be happy in a “relationship” when we are not happy on our own. Resolve to love yourself and be happy on your own, right now.
Make a special effort to radiate love and joy to everyone around you. Smile, seek out someone who is lonely and despondent, give them a special hug, remind them they are loved.
