I don’t know about you but I love Valentine’s Day because I get to share a smile with so many and remind them how much I adore them…whether it’s clients, colleagues, college pals, or career stars. I have so much fun connecting with all sorts of folks and Valentine’s Day is the best reason in the world to do that. But here’s another perspective: I asked someone who was scheduling an appointment around 4:30 pm Valentine’s afternoon if that would interfere with his evening plans. He replied, “I think Valentine’s Day is such a waste. Why do we wait for a single day a year to remind folks how much we love them?!”
That got my attention! And for those of you who shopped for Valentine’s Day cards, did you miss seeing ones that were heartfelt? The ones that talked about loving someone forever and that they were the only ones to share life with? So as this week progresses, please think about this: Put your emotions into words. Let’s try to stop being angry or upset or feeling let down and as the saying goes “let it go.” The biggest risk to any relationship – personal or professional – is silence!
So with that I say “speak up” and tell someone you care or even more importantly, tell them you love them and mean it! Have a great week and I adore all of you who follow our work and cheer us on…know that we return your positive energy! Lisa
