February 13th, 2014, is Switch-Off Thursday, Madly in Love with Me Day, Get a Different Name Day, I Value our Friendship Day, Employee Legal Awareness Day, and Tortellini Day.
Thursday of Go Green Week is Switch-Off Thursday. Participate by switching off lights when you leave a room, unplugging chargers when not in use, and turning off water when possible while brushing your teeth or washing dishes.
Madly in Love with Me Day isn't about conceit or self-absorption. Christine Arylo of Expanding Possibility, LLC, writes, "While it is true that women and girls have more equality and self esteem than ever before, something isn't changing. We believe that something is self-love.... knowing that you can do anything doesn't stop women and girls from beating themselves up, putting themselves into abusive relationships or hating and destroying their bodies." Loving yourself means protecting yourself and taking care of yourself.
Are you less than thrilled with the name your parents gave you? If so, take advantage of Get a Different Name Day. For inspiration, check out my list of celebrity baby names!
I Value our Friendship Day is a nice time to meet an old friend for lunch, make a phone call to catch up, or at least send an e-greeting.
Employee Legal Awareness Day stresses the importance of educating employees about relevant legal issues.
Enjoy a stuffed ring-shaped pasta, reminisent of promise rings or wedding bands, while romance is in the air this week. Celebrate Tortellini Day!
