Quality Time: Spending quality time with loved ones emerged as a recurring theme.

Acts of Service: For many, actions speak louder than words. Whether it’s someone else doing the dishes, cooking a delicious meal, or even making coffee in the morning, these thoughtful gestures are deeply appreciated. Acts of service, both big and small, are a tangible expression of love and care.

Words of Affirmation: Kind words have the power to uplift and inspire. Whether it’s a heartfelt compliment, a handwritten note, or a thoughtful message, words of affirmation have the ability to make someone feel valued and appreciated. Being acknowledged for one’s efforts and qualities is a powerful way to express love.

Receiving Gifts: While receiving gifts is not top of the Nisa community's list, they can serve as tangible reminders of love and thoughtfulness. Whether it’s a surprise delivery of cookies or a bouquet of peonies, receiving gifts can evoke feelings of joy and appreciation.

Love a thoughtful little gift!

Embracing Self-Love: Amidst expressions of love for others, it’s important to remember the significance of self-love. Taking time for self-care, honouring one’s needs, and surrounding oneself with positivity are essential components of self-love. By practising self-compassion and acceptance, we cultivate a deeper sense of love and fulfilment within ourselves.

Only let positive things pass through in your life. Learn to love everything about yourself. Write or print out inspirational quotes, and stick them all over your house
Self care makes me feel loved. We all deserve to honour ourselves with thoughts of love - always!


Love comes in many forms, and each expression is equally valid and meaningful. Whether it’s through acts of service, quality time, words of affirmation, physical touch, or receiving gifts, love has the power to uplift, inspire, and unite us all. As we think about what makes us feel loved, let’s take a moment to appreciate the love that surrounds us, in all its diverse manifestations.
