Here’s a great big “hello” from the heart! Yes, it’s February which means hearts seem to pop up everywhere you look. I have always asked myself what it is that I like so much about this month given that’s it’s just as cold and gray as January and the same shorter days and unpredictable weather. I think it’s the hearts. It’s got to be the hearts. I think it dates back to making those Valentine boxes many of us used to make in grade school and that my own kids did in the younger days. And thinking about happy memories such as those just makes my heart happy. I know I can always use a dose of “happy” in today’s sometimes stressful world.
Going into this month, what makes your heart happy? Whatever it is, I hope you find it and pursue it and spread that love to others. And I hope that Unconditionally Her and the features we bring this month touch a place in your heart in some way. We have National Chili Day AND National Soup Day all in the same month and thinking about that already warms my heart! Look for great features with recipes on those days and also a surprise “Sip of the Month” you won’t want to miss. More UNTOLD stories sure to warm the heart will be shared, along with a great DIY bedroom refresh from yours truly. One of my favorite contributors, Cindy Small, writes about self-love and the incredible power of nature in Hug a Tree and shares some interesting facts (do you know where in the world residents are encouraged to hug a tree?). We look forward to making your heart happy this month at Unconditionally Her!
One of my favorite quotes is from Helen Keller and is perfect for this month. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” Here’s to a February full of beauty and love– the things seen and unseen – and to whatever fills your heart.
Be Encouraged, Be Empowered, Be Inspired – Be Unconditionally YOU!
