Valentine’s day is a day of love but for many can also be a day of disappointment. So often we build expectations of what we should receive today whether from a significant other or girlfriend or even our own parents, but what happens when those expectations simply aren’t met? The truth is that the power of love is something that can be seen, heard and felt, but it shouldn’t be restricted to one day a year. Love should be shared every single day and with more than only your partner or best friend. Love is more than saying “I love you” and also about seeing the struggles of others.
Today we explore how to show up with more love than you even realize you have in you, how to recognize the struggles of someone else and truly be there for them, and you are going to learn one simple but oh so special tradition that you can start doing immediately to show more love.

Are You Showing Up With Love?

It’s letting others see and feel how you care about them and truly seeking them out to let them know you love them. It doesn’t have to be huge, over-the-top, shout from the mountains gestures, but ways that are simply meaningful.
