“In a world where you can be anything, be kind”.
February is a great month to celebrate love and kindness. And while Valentine’s Day tends to shine a spotlight on romance and couples, there are plenty of ways for you to share of yourself with the world that don’t rely on hearts and chocolate and teddy bears (okay, but a little chocolate never hurts).
Christmas and New Years have come and gone, Spring is still far off on the horizon and sometimes the rainy, grey days can feel endless. February is a month that often requires us to dig a little deeper to find something that makes us smile. But the one thing that will never fail to lighten your soul is to give of yourself to others. This month, Forever Your Lingerie would like to challenge you to act in kindness – to those you love, to those who can be hard to love, to those you’ve never met and – sometimes the hardest of all – to yourself.
We at Forever Yours Lingerie are all about daily selfless acts of love and acceptance, but we won’t let that stop us from celebrating Valentine’s Day with a purpose. Our goal is to listen to our hearts and to intentionally reach out in love to those around us.
Bake your neighbour some cookies.
Buy a stranger a coffee.
Call your mother and tell her about your week.
Treat yourself to some new underwear.
Do the dishes even though it’s not your day.
Take some flowers to a nursing home and sit a listen to someone’s stories.
Go for a long drive and clear your head.
Buy your husband some comfortable boxers.
Volunteer at your local food bank.
Ignore the laundry and make a fort with the kids.
Tell your boss what you admire about her.
Take the initiative and plan the romantic evening.
Light the expensive candle and take a few deep breaths.
Invite someone new to your community over for dinner.
Ignore your inner critic and wear the sexy lingerie.
Whatever you can think of, let it be done with sincerity and out of love. We bet that the love you give will find its way back to you. With all that is heavy and terrible in this world, let’s be people who cultivate and encourage kindness and watch it spread.
And whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your partner or alone, whether you make it a Galentine’s Day with the girls or you focus on all the love you can pour out on your kids, we hope that you will find ways this month to be authentically you. We wish you a very love-filled February with kindness around every corner.
