With all the red hearts and pink roses in the air, it’s easy to believe today’s all about cupid and romance. But we like to think of Valentine’s Day as a day to show all of the people you care about just how much you love and appreciate them.
Sure, it can be your partner, but also, it can be your amazing friends, a loving family, kind neighbors, cutie-pie pets and anyone else you care about and are grateful for.
We all have those days where we can barely drag ourselves out of bed. Your alarm rings, and after what seems like 10 hits of the snooze button, you finally pull yourself together and think … “Maybe I should have watched one less episode of Stranger Things last night?!”
But sometimes it’s not just sleep deprivation that makes it hard to show up for our day, it’s the fact that we’re not where we want to be in life.
We’re just going to come right out and say it — weekends are the best. You get to take a pause from work, meet up with friends for a glass (or two!) of wine, log some quality family time, not to mention enjoy a moment or two for y-o-u. What’s not to like, right?
Your time off couldn’t be any more blissful, that is, until it hits — Sunday afternoon.
Want to hear something crazy? There were 768 million vacation days that went unused last year in the U.S. alone. “Wait, what?!” You’re probably thinking.
That’s right. Our lovely friends, family, neighbors, maybe even you yourself willingly forfeited 768 million days they could’ve been paid to be sailing around Greece, snorkeling in Hawaii, reading at a park, hanging with their kids and pets, or doing dozens of other fun, relaxing things.
When we’re at a crossroads, or faced with a big decision, it’s typical we turn to others for their thoughts and advice.
You might survey friends with a flurry of texts, call your mom, cousin, old college roommate, and ask everyone down to your local coffee house barista what they think you should do.
How’s 2020 treating you so far? Are you drinking your green juice, clocking in at the gym and moving forward with your resolutions?
Or … are you fighting a cold, still working your way through your Christmas chocolate stash and just beginning to move forward with your big 2020 plans?
Few things beat the rush and excitement of starting a New Year. And we don’t know about you, but this one feels extra significant — maybe because it’s the beginning of a new decade!
Whatever the reason, right about now you’re probably thinking, how do I make 2020 my best year yet? How do I accomplish my goals, all while having an unforgettable time?
It’s almost here! In a few short days, we’re going to be watching the ball drop, sipping a flute of Champagne (or two) and maybe even giving someone a midnight kiss. 😉
Before you start gearing up for the night, why not think about what you want out of 2020? And no worries if you’re not exactly sure — we have some ideas to help you in your New Year journey!
From stringing lights to wrapping gifts, this is a joyous (and busy!) time of year.
