Celebrating Valentines – and Galentines Day – February 2022 Newsletter

2022-03-03T19:33:05+00:00

Welcome to my 50th Newsletter Message🦋 I can hardly believe that I have written 50 newsletter messages. Putting them all together might just be another book🌞Sign-up and Read Past Messages link. And in case you are not aware, I also offer a variety of  Writing Services I recently became aware of Galentines Day (February 13th ), and the funny thing is that the theme of my 2nd newsletter (February 2018) is somewhat similar to what Galentines Day is about. February 13th Galentines Day was put forth by the show Parks and Recreation, and it was declared as a day for girls to celebrate their female friendships and support systems. My February 2018 Newsletter message suggested that on Valentine's week, we show all whom we know – and any whom we think may be lonely – some love and appreciation. Below is some of that 2018 message. You can read the entire 2018 Happy Valentines Week message in the post I created. We all want to be happy. We all want to feel loved. And we all feel good when someone SHOWS they care about us Even though Valentine's Day is known and promoted for couples expressing and showing their Love and appreciation to each other, let's use this day/week deemed for LOVE – to express love out into the world. First, let's ensure we Love ourselves. Loving ourselves – forgiving ourselves and being authentic and attentive to OUR soul's desires ups the love quotient in our being. We can then more easily be loving and generous of spirit towards others. During Valentine's week, let's spread that Love – wherever we can, with whoever crosses our path, and with those we know who would benefit from an expression of Love – or simply a little bit of attention. ❤️❤️❤️ 🍰All the beautiful – and delish looking sweets you see here were created by Scott Taylor – baker extraordinaire.

Scott’s Website   Scott’s Instagram  Although many of us look forward to and experience wonderful Valentine's Days, many do not – and for many reasons. With Valentines Day being so hyped up, it brings with it mixed feelings for many of us. Because Valentines is deemed for sweethearts, people who are not in a relationship – or not in a loving one, often feel bad. Valentine's week may bring a sense of loneliness for people not in a relationship – even if they usually do not feel lonely or are alone by choice. The commercial build-up is so in-your-face that it's hard not to feel any effects from all the hype. For people in a relationship who are not getting along, this week promoted for loving couples may bring with it sadness – for what is not. Let's use this day to ensure we feel good; our loved ones feel loved, and extend simple expressions of [...]

Happy Valentines Week – February 2018 Newsletter Message

2022-02-07T22:59:09+00:00

This is a post I created from my February 2018 Newsletter message.🧡 We all want to be happy. We all want to feel loved. And we all feel good when someone shows they care about us. Even though Valentines Day is considered to be for couples expressing and showing their love and appreciation to each other, let’s use this day that’s deemed for LOVE ... ... to Love ourselves and to spread Love - wherever we can, with whoever crosses our path, and with people we know who would benefit from a little bit of attention or an expression of love. We actually teach our children to do this. And we teach them to be excited about Valentines Day. We may buy flowers, put up decorations, or have a special desert. Excitement mounts for children as Valentines Day approaches and handmade drawings of hearts, flowers, and chocolate are brought home from school. Parents are asked to prepare something for the class Valentine party. Valentines cards are prepared for classmates. And so no child feels bad, left out, or unloved the children are to give cards to everyone – not just their friends. We should follow that lead. Although many of us look forward to and experience wonderful Valentines Days, many do not – and for many reasons. With Valentines Day being so hyped up it brings with it mixed feelings for many people. Because it’s promoted for sweethearts, people who are not in relationships, or not in loving ones, often feel bad. For people who are not coupled up, this day may bring with it a sense of loneliness – even if they may not usually feel lonely, or are alone by choice. The commercial build-up is so in-our-face that its hard not to feel any effects from it. For people in relationships who are not getting along, February 14th may bring with it sadness – for what is not. Let’s use this day to ensure we feel good, our loved ones feel loved, and extend simple expressions of love to all those whose path we cross or who we know may feel sad, lonely, or left out on this day. If Valentines Day brings with it good feelings for you - share the warm feelings with others through your demeanor or with simple gestures. If this day brings with it loneliness or sadness for you, extending a loving gesture to another will not only benefit them, it will also benefit you. Any expression of love we make to another sparks feelings of love within our being. There are many simple ways to make our self feel good and to express loving thoughtfulness to others. (There are links to some of my articles / blog posts on relationships as well as to my full blog and website at the bottom of this newsletter). If Married or In a Relationship Don’t let this day go unnoticed. If your relationship is strong be sure to recognize Valentines Day and show appreciation for [...]
