“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz.
Today is a good reminder to see how your loved one feels love. Last year, I wrote about the 5 love languages in a blog post, so if you do not know your own or your partner’s love language – now is the time to find out here.
If your partner’s love language is quality time, I hope you have planned to spend some time together whether that’s a walk, a meal or an experience. If it’s gifts, then flowers, chocolate or something thoughtful will be appreciated. If it’s words of appreciation, a love note, a kind word of what makes them amazing will be received well. If it’s acts of service, do something for them that makes them smile and it’s physical touch, a big hug will go a long way.
Remember, we often have a few of these love languages, so your safest bet is to do all of the above – that way, you are well and truly covered. If you have the same love language as your partner, you’re lucky, what you give is what your partner wants naturally. If you don’t, then give consciously and also tell your partner what it is that you need.
This is also a reminder to give and receive love everyday and not just on Valentine’s Day.
I wish you lots of love! Happy Valentine’s Day!
