Love is a Verb,
Happy Valentine’s! Everyday should be Valentine’s not just ONE day. We should always appreciate our loved ones, if it is our boyfriends/ girlfriends, hubbys/ wifeys, friends, family or even strangers. Of course, it sounds weird to say strangers in this context but we urge you to get out of the notions and stereotypes of this holiday and actually appreciate the ones we are with. Whether at work or at a coffeeshop, be kind, be open and let people into your lives. You might just be surprised with what you encounter. This is why it does not matter whether you have a ‘Valentine’ because your Valentine can be anyone in your life or someone you just met. Think about it. It’s actually pretty simple. Why make ourselves unhappy and miserable? If we step out of our comfort zones, we will be amazed of what it may lead us to. Love is all around and we need to start spreading love. The world needs love more than ever now, we have so many things going on 24/7- we need to start owning love and showing people that love is all we need. We need to take action and make things happen for ourselves, we cannot just expect things to fall into place. Without action and dedication, long lasting love and happiness is a far fetched dream. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there, to let down your guard and experience new emotions.
We cannot forget that it is also Chinese New Year- Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! Whether or not you are celebrating, we should rejoice in the celebrations. The year of the Sheep, a festival for families to come together and celebrate a new year. If you do not know much about the Lunar New Year festivities, I strongly recommend looking within your city or township and joining in the festivities or visiting friends who are celebrating. It is an amazing experience to be part of the dragon dances, the drums, the lights and the colours of this festival.
