Simple Ways to Let Your Love Flow
Posted By Kate Hanley On February 2, 2012 @ 12:09 pm In Personal Growth, Relationships | 1 Comment
Contrary to the deluge of advertisements, magazine articles and greeting cards floating around right now, not everyone looks forward to Valentine’s Day . Lots of people can’t stand it. Hate it, even. (I know; I used to be one of them until I got engaged on Feb. 14th five years ago.) It can seem like just another excuse to spend money and an opportunity to wish your love life were somehow different.
If you detest this time of year or just aren’t looking forward to this particular V-Day, try these simple ways to shortcut through the schmaltz and societal pressure and go straight to what this high-pressure holiday is really all about. Not flowers , chocolates  or over-priced dinner reservations, but love. May one or some or all of these activities help you transform Valentine’s Day into an opportunity to recharge your love batteries .
I’d love to hear how you get back in touch with your loving nature  when you find that you’ve retreated back in to your shell. Please leave a comment and share!
