“Valentine hearts beat more passionately than everyday hearts.” – Anonymous
Valentine’s Day is upon us again. The stores are once again stocked with: flowers, candy, chocolate covered strawberries, romantic cards, balloons, stuffed animals; you name it! Does it really take all of these gifts to show someone that you love them? What about the other 364 days of the year? Shouldn’t we show our significant other that we love them everyday?
Why do Valentine hearts beat more passionately than every day hearts? I think the reason this quote is anonymous is because the person who said it was never actually in love. Because when you are truly in love, you understand that love is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is something you must always work on, not just one day a year.
SOS shares with couples in our Protecting Goals: Successful Relationships program that they should spend some time creating a written understanding of the purpose of their relationship. What is it that they really want to do together? Then the program asks them to develop a mission statement that embodies their purpose as a driving force. We ask the couple to give their imagination free reign. As a couple, what would you do if you knew you could not fail?
SOS Leadership encourages you to show that special someone that you love them each and every day! Remember as leaders we must continue to learn, grow, and teach. This holds true in our relationships. Continue to work on them daily. Love one another unconditionally.
