Happy Valentines Day loves! I used to think Mom & Me Journal’s were kind of dorky. Then when I started to use a notebook to write things that were amazing about my mom I realized that it was pretty fun. We pass the notebook back and forth and when either of us are having a bad day or going through a deep struggle that notebook is there with a sweet note from the other person.
This might be a fun thing to try (especially since is Valentines). If you don’t have a mom or don’t want to do this with your mom do it with a sibling, a friend, a grandparent, a cousin, or your dad. This can help build stronger relationships with people in your life and give you someone you can reach out to in a time of need.
You can also use this journal to open up about things that are harder to say in person. Sometimes it can be easier to write things out as opposed to saying them to that person out loud.
I feel like sometimes we forget that Valentines Day is about more than love between a couple. I see it as a specific day to show love to the people you care most about. This is one of the ways that I do that personally. It has helped me see my mom as more of a person and less as the person that makes the rules.
What is something special you do with your mom or someone else you are close to?
