Spreading the Love

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

~ William Penn

 

It’s time for another Hallmark perfect holiday.

I know Valentine’s Day, with its emphasis on romantic love, creates mixed emotions for people. If you’re alone, you feel it more deeply. I’ve you’re in a relationship, you wonder if “they” will remember. It’s so easy to feel left out or to have expectations.

What if we turned Valentine’s Day into a celebration of caring for one another? And I’m not just talking about those close to us. I’m including everyone we come in contact with on Feb. 14.

What if we practiced random acts of kindness all of Valentine’s Day?

What if our goal was to be the Johnny Appleseed of smiles, just for one day?

And what if we made it more wonderful by not expecting to be identified with the action?

 

Your Call to Action

How might our small actions make an impact? On the world? On us? What if we acted this way once a week? Go on, give it a shot!

 

Happy Valentine”s Day, dear ones!
