V-Day Challenge, Day 8

It is and it isn't...

Words like "love" "friendship" "success" "wealth" are often used without us giving much thought to them.  I mean, my definition of success is probably different from my neighbors.  For today, we're gonna focus  This exercise will take between 5-10 minutes. 


Divide a piece of paper into 2 columns.  On the left write "Love Is" and on the right, write ""Love Isn't." Write whatever pops into your mind about love in the general sense.*  For you, love could be an unexpected smile from a stranger, a sunny day, being yourself with someone, a conversation with a close friend, a warm hug.  

Create your list and notice what does and does not feel loving to you.  What are you already doing that makes you feel loved?  What can you do to add more love to your day?  What causes you to feel unloved? 

*If you have the time,  you can categorize love based upon the 3 of the relationship categories from Day 1 or simply list what self-love is and isn't for you.  Feel free to update this list as needed.

    1. Thank you much, Spinster Jane! I really appreciate your comment. I almost talked myself out of posting these challenges so I'm glad that they're of some help.

      I'm following along with these challenges as well. My "Love Is and Isn't" list just got updated this morning and the Day 1 challenge had me feeling grateful for the relationships that are positive in my life.
