A Month of Love
Walk by any flower shop this month, and it should be fairly obvious to all of us that February is known as “the month of love.”
I love the softer sentiment hidden in this month.
While I’m not a fan of the overly commercialized version of “Valentine’s Day!” constantly shouted at us from every supermarket balloon display, I do love the softer sentiment hidden in this month. The month of love is a chance to connect with those close to you. A chance to show your loved ones, well, that you love them. A chance to show yourself, hey, you’re pretty lovable and you deserve a little TLC, too. And that is always a good thing, no matter what month it is.
One thing I know is that love isn’t a ring, a teddy bear or a chocolate filled heart, although those things can all be fun, but truly, love is an action. Think about what actions you do on a daily basis to show love for yourself, your children, your spouse, and your friends and family. Making someone a cup of coffee, listening to a friend, being fully present for your child… This month I’m going to be trying to fill all those little invisible acts of love with a little more intention. A little more love. Because we all know the world could use it.
In February, Move LifeStyle will be taking a look at love from all different angles, taking pleasure in the silly ritual of celebrating all things red+pink+heart-covered, and sharing one of our own love-themed celebrations with you! Hope you enjoy.
Here are some fun links to start off the month:
February is the month of love. We see it as an opportunity to create deeper connections with your loved ones and with anything that ignites a passion in your soul. We see it as a moment to appreciate the little everyday things that put a smile on your face. We see it as the chance to show yourself that hey, you’re pretty lovable and you deserve a little TLC, too. (And that’s always a good thing, no matter what month it is!)
