Notice the frequency with which you do (or do not) connect with one another each day. If your relationship is lacking in this way then do your part to recharge this important aspect.
“Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the word 'forever.'
But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing,
such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.” ~ Marian Keyes
When negativity builds up in a relationship we tend to hold
our Thank Yous hostage. We tell ourselves that they should have done things, or they had to be asked to do that (sometimes mul- tiple times) so they don’t deserve a thank you for it. Stop it!!! You will only create a lonely existence within your relationship if you continue to make appreciation something that has to be earned. Give it freely – the only thing it costs you is maybe some of your indignation. Say thank you early and often – say it when they pass you the butter and say it when they put gas in your car.
Look for specific opportunities to surprise them with your
appreciation. Leave sticky notes in places they will find them with loving sentiments on them. The key is to be specific – saying I admire you is not as powerful as, I admire your patience and I noticed it when you spent an hour helping Johnny with his homework.
Do not discount the power of sticky notes! Do you have to ask 100 times for them to unload the dishwasher? Leave a surprise sticky that says I appreciate it when you unload the dishwasher – it makes me feel like we are a good team. This type of positive connection is much more powerful than the 100 times you asked – which I’m guessing weren’t without some tone of disapproval or criticism.
You have the power to turn your relationship around by turning around your attitude and actions. Break free from the mindlessness that has blanketed your daily interactions. Infuse some new positive, loving energy into your relationship and watch how it blossoms like a rose after a long winter sleep.
