I bought my husband an appointment at a sleep clinic for Valentine's Day. Seriously. We are going on the 15th. I am sure he has Periodic Limb Movement Disorder. In laymen's terms: every 30 seconds, almost every night, he kicks me.
We need this appointment because I think he doesn't sleep well. I know I don't. So it was the best gift I could think of, for both of us.
What do those you love really need?
What is the kindest gift you could give yourself?
A shut door with no interruptions until noon? Honest feedback from a friend? Less wine? More time for connections beyond email? An apology that's been weighing you down? Time in nature?
I invite you not to think big or clever this Valentine's day. Think real. And start with you.
