Valentine’s Day is one of Hallmarks most successful holidays. They started to produce cards in 1916 and it has been a huge marketing success ever since; remaining the second largest holiday for giving greeting cards. However, the expectations many have for this holiday have far surpassed the original message of love. Makes me think about all the expectations we set in life. Often we can become too obsessed and excessively focused on what we expect to happen and what we expect from others. If we set expectations too high, we only become frustrated, impatient and lose focus on enjoying the daily journey of our lives. I think the better mindset is to expect little and appreciate everything. The more you appreciate people and life in general, the more of it you will have around you. Sending you my sincere appreciation for being a special part of my life, I’m grateful for you all!
