Commercial Valentine's day can be rough. Expectations about "romantic love" can feel overwhelming or disappointing. This expressive arts project encourages you to take the best care of your own heart by showing gratitude/love to another's heart.
"Gratitude is the heart's memory." French proverb
"The place to improve the world is first in ones own heart and head and hands." Robert Persig
Expressive arts are a great way to start a self care habit by using creativity to take matters in your own hands - literally. Expanding our sense of personal struggle to realize we are not alone and then working to alleviate a sense of loneliness for another, we change the entire focus of the day for all involved.
