This week I’m mildly obsessed with the song “The Heart Wants What It Wants” by Selena Gomez (and don’t even get me started on that “Stars Dance” song. Oh Selena where have you been all my life? Oh wait, you weren’t born yet). To anyone who knows me as a Motley Crue/Cinderella/Arcade Fire/TV on the Radio/Bjork fan, I’m sorry. Yep, bubble burst. So speaking of hearts, I LOVE Valentine’s Day. A holiday created to sell cards? HELL YES! I love cards too! I even love index cards.
Valentine’s Day is a fantastic reason/excuse to pay-it-forward. There’s still time to Spare a Rose, Save a Child.
I don’t think of Valentine’s Day as a “romance” thing. It’s about happiness, smiles, being kind (even when you really don’t want to be), doing someone else a favor, surprises, simply saying “I LOVE you”, and grilled cheese. Why not right? My only real Valentine’s Day disaster was when I decorated a coworker’s desk with hundreds of heart stickers. Those stickers weren’t liars (so damn STICKY. Tragic clean-up). Well you win some, you lose some right?
And if you need a little inspiration (and who doesn’t love a little magic a la scavenger hunt), please join me in finding some hearts. Send’em my way (as you can see, February is looking a little skimpy): firstname.lastname@example.org
Do Good, Feel Good. LOVE. Oh and get some exercise. Be good to your heart.
