The Month of Love

For my happiness project this month I’m focusing on love. How perfect and romantic right? Not only is February the month of Valentine’s Day but it is also my 3 year anniversary with the BF. It’s today in fact. Look at us years ago….
….so young and in love.

Thinking of resolutions for this month has been tough, everything I can think of seems so general and archetypal that it’s hard to come up with specific things to measure myself on each day. I need your help. I’m going to share my general ideas and hopefully you all will be able to suggest some more specific daily practices. Sound like a plan?

Here you go:

  1. Love myself.
  2. Love my enemies (not that I have actual enemies but you know, the things that you just dislike, I want to get over those things.)
  3. Be a better partner. This one should be easy to come up with some daily goals for.

Now friends, tell me what you think, I can’t wait to hear what you all have to say.

  1. Your “young and in love” line reminded me of one of my favorite songs I haven’t listened to for awhile – thanks, I’m now listening to it right this moment. πŸ™‚

    My idea is pretty general and maybe lame but for #1 I say to take some time each day to do whatever you want for 30 min. or so – watch a tv show, read a book ect.

  2. Congratulations, Kristiina! What a perfect month to be having an anniversary! I like Ashley’s idea for #1 – it sounds so simple in theory, and yet I find myself not putting it into practice enough. My advice for #2 may be more geared towards rejection, but it may also help with getting over the things you dislike/that get to you: I’ve started a practice of asking myself how much a particular situation will matter 1 week, 1 month or 1 year from now. Looking at the bigger picture helps tends to give me perspective. Not sure, if that’s helpful…

  3. Happy Anniversary!!! I think a really great way to demonstrate that you love yourself is to simply hug yourself every single day. πŸ™‚
