Valentine's Day 2023
Happy Valentine's Day to those who celebrate!
It's a day that can put extra pressure on relationships if we allow ourselves to get caught up in consumerism and big expectations. Instead, consider making the day about celebrating all the types of love in our lives: family or chosen family, friends, teachers, mentors, pets, coworkers, neighbors, 12-step groups, spiritual connections, and so many others. After the last several years of quarantines and isolation, doesn't it seem too limited to focus on just one relationship or relationship goal? Today can be about expanding our circle for many kinds of love and kindness.
Regardless if we have a romantic relationship in our life, we can take today to give ourselves some extra love. Curl up with a good book, snuggle a pet, and appreciate the present moment. And don't forget the chocolate goes on clearance tomorrow!
