So here we are… 2021. Still sheltering in place. Still masking up. But hopeful that this is the year of returning to some state of normalcy. In the meantime, Valentine’s Day apparently hasn’t been cancelled.
Truth be told, I’ve never been partial to this day, even though I never turn down dark chocolate. But it is an excuse to persuade my better half to re-watch sappy rom-coms, and indulge in a caloric splurge, so whether you’re celebrating the day with your partner, your galentine, or going solo, here’s some ideas for spreading the love.
I know, I know, dating myself here, please don’t judge.
These two are not so old, but worth a watch in my opinion.
All of these can be done in the comfort of your bed.
• Listen: Modern Love
• Read: Tiny Love Stories. These tiny 100-word stories sure pack a punch.
• Scroll: Humans of New York. Aren’t most human stories about love anyways?
Doh, but of course. I couldn’t sign off without the classic… spread love by sending flowers. I recently received a surprise bouquet from Farmgirl Flowers and seeing those flowers every morning made my week.
It’s worth saying that you don’t have to wait till the 14th to act on these ideas.
Spread little joys everyday.
