During the month of February, which as you know, contains Valentine’s Day, an extremely commercialized holiday, it is good to think about other aspects ‘love’ can encompass. For example, the love of a family member, the love of a friend, the love of a pet, the love of your apartment, the love of your hair or even your city.
Speaking of love and cities, did you know that Philadelphia, the largest city in Pennsylvania, is referred to as the ‘City of Brotherly Love’? It’s because translated from Greek philos is love and adelphos is brother. The ‘Brotherly Love’ motto is attributed to William Penn, the English Quaker, who had envisioned the area to be a place where people of any color or background could live together in peace and harmony. Isn’t that LOVEly!
So instead of viewing this month with negativity and skepticism, perhaps we can adopt a different perspective and appreciate what there is to LOVE in your life! Starting with that beautiful apartment in Philly!
