February isn’t over yet and neither is my list of heart stories. This week we look at history, at a true love story, an organization dedicated to helping women make time for and feel the love, and some real heart stories reminding you to take care of your heart health.
HEART BALM RACKET
From the Smithsonian, we take a look at How the Heart Balm Racket Convinced America Women Were No Good.
What do you think? Was the Heart Balm Racket sensationalistic journalism or a real threat?
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
A love at first sight story, also from the Smithsonian.
How do you like that Mr. Clemmons deliberately writing passages that his wife would react to?
FEEL THE LOVE
HeartStories is an organization whose mission is to help women hear Love louder than all the negative noise in your life. Read about them here. http://heartstories.com/about/ If you can’t or don’t want to join that organization, consider doing something for yourself. Make a goal to set aside time to slow down and feel the love around you.
REAL HEART STORIES
Do yourself a favor and read the Real Heart Stories from The Heart Foundation, then check out the rest of the Heart Foundation site. Make sure you don’t end up as one of those Real Heart Stories.
