1. Use words that encourage happiness. – Typically, when I ask someone “How are you?” they reply, “I’m fine” or “I’m okay.” But one lazy Monday afternoon last month a new colleague of mine replied, “Oh, I am fabulous!” It made me smile, so I asked him what was making him feel so fabulous and he…
I’m going to try at least one!
It’s sad that domestic violence is something people fear to talk about. Did you know 1 out of 4 women will experience domestic violence in Britain, and every week, according to Home Office, two women are killed by someone they have been in a relationship with. Women, Men and Children - everyone can be a victim.
People seem to think that walking away from the situation is as easy as telling them to “walk away”, but it really isn’t. You never know what it is like until you’ve worn the shoes of an individual who has been abused; physically and/or emotionally.
I wish I could help those who are, unfortunately, experiencing domestic violence. If I had the help I’d like to give now, maybe I would have walked away much sooner.
Every day, should be a day where we appreciate our loved ones, and not just Valentines Day. I will admit it, I used to be SO against the day, most likely because boyfriends of my past never used to pay any mind to it, which is fine. I therefore vowed my only Valentine would be my best friend. I forgot to consider that we might, in the future (now present), have boyfriends as well as each other. That doesn’t change anything, apart from that now, we each get two Valentines cards each =).
I had a lovely Valentines day, and though we didn’t go any extra mile to make the Day special (every day should be special together), he really did make me feel special, just by being himself, and I love that about him. Everyday, he is himself and he respects that I, too, am myself. Thank you, my Valentine.
And thank you for saving this newt from a gorgeous feline!!!
NEVER. 💖 #motto #2014 #inspiration #love
