Do you have a romantic relationship, friendship, or other kinship that has gone flat? How do you add spice back into your connections? Check this out!
Jill and Don have been married for over 15 years. Jill knows exactly what to expect. She’ll get a dozen roses and a box of chocolates. Same old, same old. They’ll likely bicker when they first get home and retreat to their corners of the house barely saying a word to each other except to acknowledge who is taking the kids to practice tonight. Don recognized they’ve been growing apart for a while and he truly wanted to re-engage with his best friend, confidant, and travel partner.
With the flick of a switch, Don planned a lavish night.
Jill walked in after a frantic day at the office to dim light lights, rose petals (laid out by the kids) led to a 4 course meal for the entire family. The kids were excited to see their parents getting along again. Jill noticed a corner of paper sticking out from underneath her dinner plate. Don, with a gentle voice, said, “Go ahead and open it.” It was a gorgeously decorated envelope. Inside there was an invitation to join her husband for an exclusive weekend at a remote cabin in the nearby national forest. Tears began running down Jill’s face. She desperately wanted a break to disconnect from work and rekindle her marriage. Jill reached over and hugged her husband for the first time in months.
How can you bring zest back to your romantic relationship? If you’re not in one, don’t fret. What can you do for a friend, family member, colleague, or even stranger that can use some extra love?
It’s time to add spark into your relationships.
May kindness, peace, and love rain onto this Valentine’s Day. Wishing you a loving, warm, and joyful day!
