As we approach and celebrate Valentine’s Day, many of us are planning and preparing to celebrate love, but do we really know what that is? What is love? My brother summed up the answer to this perennial question best: Love is a verb. No, it’s not just a morpheme used to make a syntactical structure grammatical, but an action. So what does it mean to love? Love is acting selflessly, doing what is best for others, and giving unconditionally.
It is true love that builds a strong bond between partners. And trust comes about when you have true love for your partner. Otherwise you’ll be left hurt if you love your partner and your partner doesn’t love you (unrequited love). When partners don’t pay attention to things that express their love for one another they’ll find it difficult to have a purposeful, meaningful, stable and fulfilling relationship.
Jesus Himself also manifested the power of love by accepting to die the most shameful death on the cross for mankind. And He left a commandment that we should Large Dildos even as He had shown us. Jesus would never ask us to do the impossible if it was so. Therefore, in our Christian life, Jesus expects us to walk in love towards one another.
Expect strange things: While you are dating someone, you probably will find out some very bad things about the person. This is not a time to attack, it is a time to see if the person is going to be willing to drop what you see as a bad behavior or attitude or not. If the person is teachable, good and if not; remember there is no commitment yet and you cannot force anything to happen. You are basically learning at this time.
Do not only feel grateful for the big things in life. Of course you are grateful that you woke up next to the love of your life this morning, and that you are healthy for at least another day. But you should also appreciate the small, simple events of your day, such as a good glass of wine, or a long walk with a friend.
Though gifts are always welcome on a special occasion however buying impromptu gifts for your spouse adds bonus points in your romance meter and your spouse is reminded of the fact that they are indeed special for you.
Do you experience yourself and realize that you are you dating the same physical type of man/woman over and over again. Do you have a physical type, i.e. tall, blonde, bald, hulking, etc. and are not interested in leaving that type behind? In the past, I have been guilty of dating like that. Thus not making room for anyone else to enter my sphere and all the while, still looking for a different response and treatment. Duh! However, are you not ready to leave your type behind but still want something different? Do you want and or are you interested in stopping this kind of behavior? Do you want a different results?
So get clarity on what love and romance means to you. Break that down into specific items and ideas. Then turn these specific statements into positive and present statements that you write and state daily. I recommend doing it twice a day, right when you wake up, and right when you go to bed. This allows you to start and end the day in positive powerful ways to ensure you invite the love and romance you want into your life.
