As the first Happy Feet Valentine’s Ball approaches, the air is crackling with anticipation and excitement as ladies are buying dresses, discussing shoes, and figuring out hair styles. How fitting that the first major family event for the Happy Feet Club is for Valentine’s Day, the holiday of love! Happy Feet is all about love – loving ourselves, and loving our friends.
As many of you have noticed ,the unique atmosphere and philosophy of Happy Feet has been to love and support each other and never push each other down. You will only see positive feedback on groups. During Saturday walks there are only smiles and encouragement given to other walkers. The Valentine’s Ball has been no exception, with the sharing of pictures of dresses , ideas for jewelry and even places to buy undergarments!
Loving oneself is an ongoing journey for most of us. On a day to day basis we all show our love for our families and friends, but we forget to love ourselves, regardless of our shape and size. We get caught up in losing weight, and looking a certain way. Happy Feet has reminded us to love our inner beauty and most importantly to respect our health.
The love and encouragement from our Happy Feet friends has allowed all of us to love ourselves even more and by loving ourselves more, we can show our love to our friends. It is a wonderful circle of love!
It is not chocolate and roses from loved ones that we are all looking forward to this year but the chance to show everyone that
“WE LOVE HAPPY FEET!!!”
