How will you show love this Valentine’s Day?

Valentine's Day is a day filled with chocolates, roses, giddy teenagers, heartbreak and more.  It is a day where we show our love and appreciation to those special around us.  But for this day, I want to propose a challenge to all the administrative professionals.  It is nothing too hard or expensive, but it will make a huge difference in your life.  Are you ready for it?

Valentine's Day

Grab a piece of paper and pen and quickly answer the following questions:

  1. One thing you love about yourself
  2. One thing you love about your work
  3. One thing you love about the people around you

To get you started – here is my list as an example:

  1. I love my “never give up” attitude and purple hair
  2. I love finding solutions to tricky challenges
  3. I love the support and understanding I can easily get from the people around me

Now that you have your answers written down, put that piece of paper somewhere where you can easily see it and the next time you are having a rough day, remind yourself of the positive things you have in your life. 

Often when times get tough, we start to feel that the world is against us and we are alone, and this is rarely the case.  Having these 3 small things answered, and easily accessible you can remind yourself to see the positive, and it will help you keep motivated and inspired to get through any situation.

If you would like to share your positive paper – you can share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #PositivePaper
