Some people had a great Valentines Day, others did not.
Just as some people have great relationships, some not.

No one needs a “holiday” to show love, but it’s a day like Valentines Day that can catalyze kindness.
1. Say “Thank you.”
Most people don’t take the time to express appreciation for their loved ones. This Valentines Day – before dinner, at the lunch table, in the break room, on the phone, through a text – take a moment to say something specific that you appreciate about that person.
2. Give a handwritten a note.
Text. Twitter. IM. Voxer. Cell phones. Apps. Every communication seems to be instant and electronic. This Valentines Day try something new – actually old – write a handwritten note!
