If you downloaded the 2013 Friendship Calendar, you know that February brings lots of fun things besides Valentine's Day. There is a favorite quote of mine from Betty Ford, that says, "You can make it, but it's easier if you don't have to do it alone." While this quote references addiction, I think it's a good quote to apply to friendship as well. There are things in life that are just easier when we have the support of our friends.
The tip to nurture your friendship this month involves throwing a Valentine's Day party, but if you missed out on that, why not throw an after-Valentine's Day bash. You don't need to follow the calendar to find an opportunity to celebrate with your pals!
Now that winter is in full force, a good way to make new friends this month is by taking a new class or learning a new hobby. You'll instantly be connected with others with similar interests, and it will be easy to make small talk. Invite one or two friends out for coffee after class to get to know them a bit better.
February is also:
- National Laugh Friendly Month
- Relationship Wellness Month
- Random Acts of Kindness Week (10-16)
