February, the month we celebrate love. Every month is a great month to celebrate love, but this month we highlight it all. I like to go old school and make gifts, make coupons and make lots of baked goods to give to my family and friends. I love handwritten cards and notes and I love to leave little treats on pillows. I don’t like the commercialism of the month but I love to celebrate love. Try to think about ways you can too.
One word of advice for you this month- ask for what you want. I am serious, please try this. We are such caregivers and the queens of multitasking that our needs always get put on hold and then we get resentful.
Tell your partner what you want. If it is not easy for you, write it down. Here is an example:
“Babe, this week, I would love to have an hour to myself to read and if you could help get that laundry sorted, I would be so grateful , Thanks.”
It may sound silly, but ask for the little things you want. WE DESERVE IT!
I wish you all a happy start to the second month of 2018. I am starting my second book this week too!
