Welcome SOML readers! I am so excited to have you 🙂 You can check out my about me, or my recent reintroduction to my readers here. Or, if you want to jump right in, today I’m talking about a favorite subject, love.
So I’m not an expert at falling back in love, but falling in love again – that I do everyday. For me, the key is falling in love over and over with Ben so I never have to fall back into love with him. Here are my 10 tips for staying in love, or falling in love again.
Love yourself. Its true, its hard to love anyone else the way they deserve if you don’t love yourself. Take time for you. Maybe its a manicure, a long run, or working hard at your job; Do whatever you need to make you feel awesome about yourself.
Spend some time apart. Make sure you keep up with your girlfriends, or make some. I love spending time with Ben, and I love it even more when I haven’t seen him for a few hours and I jump in his arms after a whole weekend. Don’t spend too much time apart – but those girls are more important to your relationship than you know.
Serve them. Pick up their laundry. Pack their lunch. Do little things for them.
Tell them you love them, without saying it. Of course, saying it with your voice is so important, but remind them with little things: notes, favorite candy bars, random text messages, unsolicited kisses, you get the idea.
Choose love. Love is a feeling – but its also an action. Its something you choose. Its something you can choose, everyday.
