Now a days, this celebration of love has become too commercial. Millions are being made by Cards, Cocolates and gift companies. Hotels, Pubs, Clubs and Music make whole of the year’s revenue in just the second week of February.
Dating Sites are being swamped with Fresh Profiles and memberships hoping to find new Dates for the occasion. On February 14, we get engaged in all sorts of acts to find real love and happiness. At the end of the day, after all the fun and frolic, when we try to figure out: Did we get what we have been looking for?
We get one answer, No.
The reason is we didn’t understand Love and we are not looking for it at right place.
Let’s try to get what way and in what form Love comes in your life and how it makes you real happy.
Be A Volunteer:
Objective is to do something for someone. There are number of ways to help others. Rather than being Valentine, let’s try to be a volunteer. You can volunteer at a local soup kitchen, animal shelter, rest home, hospital or hospice, or your favorite nonprofit organization. How about offering your knowledge to the children? You can check your local college campus, school for any organized event or find opportunities on local social media forums.
Why not have your bills go to a good cause rather than pricey dinners? Check your newspaper or online city pages for Valentine-themed fundraisers that support local nonprofit organizations. It would be much better if you arrange your own party, raise the fund and donate the proceeds to charity.
Just think of all those people who have served you every day and made your life easier. Give a thank-you card to the bus driver, big tip to your McDonald’s sever, gift to the waiter at local restaurant who serves you food. You can’t forget to thank the cab driver who often took you to your destination. Remember to wish to the person who picks up your trash. Big smile with kind words at the gas station will be highly appreciated. It’s all about spreading love, right!
Notes & Cards:
Not just to your sweetheart, but to people and organizations that are doing good things for the world, send Valentine’s day Cards and Notes to them. Tell them why you respect and appreciate their work. This gesture will definitely make a big difference. They will feel loved and grateful when you do something for others that is difficult for them to do on their own. If you’re feeling extra generous, include a donation check in the envelope.
Get a head start on spring cleaning and donate clothes, jackets, toys, furniture, household items, books and old computers to the organizations who accept them. You can start off by donating them to your maids, drivers and watchmen.
There is a higher purpose to Valentine’s Day than cards, flowers and dinners, but you do need to express what’s in your heart. Love keeps refilling itself, whenever you freely give it away. You will experience how good it feels to do something for others.
And at the end of the day, you will experience the real value of happiness!
