Welcome to the Feeling Good podcast. Thank you so much for joining me today. As I am recording this podcast today, it is two days away from Valentine’s Day. That tells me spring is in the air and pretty soon we’re going to have flowers blooming. I can’t wait to see the beautiful dogwood tree, outside my window, bloom. I know every year on Valentine’s Day, we all have our minds on our sweethearts and on those special loved ones in our lives. In this week’s episode, I want to challenge you to be mindful of your own heart; not just on Valentine’s Day, but every single day of the year.
