100 Actionable Ways To Say “I Love You”

 

H A P P Y   m o n d a y 

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, this post is all about love.  Love is the glue that holds our relationships together- it’s an action, an emotion, a behavior, a tangible feeling.  You have to give love to receive love.  For those of you who think Valentine’s Day is a day only for those who are in romantic relationships- reframe your perspective to include all of the people you love, and do something to demonstrate how grateful you are for them.  Love others, but most importantly love yourself.  These actions can be applied to your parents, your children, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents, pets, friends, co-workers, and of course- you.
