On Valentines day, I make an effort to smile bigger smiles, give random people a compliment, organise a dinner with friends, and make phone calls to loved ones.
Here is my list of sustainable ways to show love on the 14th February, and beyond.
♥ Help an elderly person like your grandparents or neighbour with the grocery shopping
♥ Grab a friend and pick up rubbish in your neighbourhood
♥ Cook a meal for a friend that has been a bit stressed or busy lately
♥ Go through your contacts and pick three people you have not spoken to in a while. Send them a message, email or call them to say hello
♥ Write a love letter to yourself listing your achievements in your life so far
♥ Volunteer your time at a shelter
♥ Walk a busy friend's dog
♥ Get a massage
♥ Host a clothes swap party
♥ Give a random person a compliment
♥ If there is a home on your street with a beautiful garden that makes you happy, drop a note in their mailbox telling them how much you appreciate their garden
♥ Adopt an animal
♥ Donate to your favorite charity
♥ Volunteer at your local hospital, school or library for story time
♥ Plant a tree
♥ Support that friend/partner/parent/sibling and go with them to that free dance class they have wanted to try
♥ Smile at everyone you see
You can even do some of these with your loved one. Throw out your net of love wide this year.
