The gals at SITS have created a wonderful way to celebrate the entire month of February with their 30-Day Love Challenge (although aren't there only 28 days in February??). Anyway, if you want to join me, they are breaking out the month by weeks and these weeks will have themes.
Week 1: February 7 – 11
We will concentrate on ourselves. Oprah has spent years encouraging women to take time for themselves and darn it, it’s about time we did. If pampering yourself just a little each day will bring you to a place that will allow you to work on other relationships with a clear mind, then it’s definitely something we should be doing!
Week 2: February 14 – 18
We will focus on our relationship with our significant other. What can we do to be a better partner, girlfriend or wife? How do we get back to the girl your special someone fell in love with? It’s easy to become complacent in a relationship and expect your significant other to fill in. That’s why we’ll be making mindful decisions each day to show our partners we appreciate them with even the smallest of thoughtful gestures.
Week 3: February 21 – 25
Our attention will be on our kids…whether that be your furry friends or your own little human monkeys, we will spend the week thinking about things we can do to be better caretakers to them. Maybe that means making a point to get outside for fresh air together or taking the time to cuddle on the couch for a movie. Whatever it is, we’ll inspire each other with ideas on how we can help our loved ones feel more special than they already are.
Week 4: February 28 – March 4
This will be our wrap-up week when we think about our friends, old and new. Friends can hold such a special place in our lives, but are usually the first to be overlooked due to the demands at home. What if you made an effort each day to let a friend know you’re thinking of her (or him)? During this week, we’re going to work on just that. We believe strong friendships make us happier people, and that when we’re happy, we’re better at all of the roles in our lives.
I hope you'll join me and the SITS gals on this fun challenge!
