Start a love revolution…

Alternatives to Valentines Day

AN34198707A-BUS-driver-rushHannah suggests that February 14th becomes a ‘share the love day’. “Today let’s try to make all people feel appreciated and special. Say thank you to the bus driver, smile at a stranger, go cupid and help a single friend to find love, complement a colleague, or, if you don’t already know them, introduce yourself to a neighbour. It might just catch on!”

This is just what Abdullah is advocating in his marvelous blog: http://bit.ly/1eyhtDb
He says, love is not for a day and each day until February the 20th he is doing something “lovely” and posting a Facebook picture or status update on what he did and how it made a difference.

Why not join him or do your own ten day journey to spread the love? His suggestions on how to:

  1. Call your mum/dad/sis/bro just to tell them “I Love you” !
  2. Sponsor an Orphans food for the day.
  3. Next time you visit a coffee shop, order two and give the other to the person behind you in the line.
  4. When you see your friend tomorrow, hug them and tell them you love them unconditionally.
  5. When buying a snickers, grab two and give the other to the first beggar you see on the road with “hope this makes your day a bit better”.
  6. The dying plant in your garden, go water it and put some extra fertilizer as a thank you for all the oxygen it has given you.

These are just a few suggestions, but be innovative, don’t look for for opportunities, create them to spread the love.

Remember love is everywhere!

Happy Valentines Day.
