Interesting how the Universe delivers. We get a subtle knowing of the very thing or things we need to take a closer look at and think “Hmmm, okay, maybe I should spend some time with this and see what comes up”. A week goes by and you’re still occasionally thinking about it (especially when something ruffles your feathers) and you think “Great reminder. I’ll look into this very soon!”. Another week goes by and your patting yourself on the back for remembering that this is something that you need to spend some time with. You justify and rationalize not spending the time with it, because you want to wait for that perfect time where you have good, uninterrupted time and can devote yourself to it wholly. It’s all good. You’ll eventually get to it. Or will you?
Will you get to it before the Universe delivers a punch so big that you cannot postpone or wait a second longer? Where you feel like a two by four has been delivered with a good solid blow to every single part of your knowing, with a deliberate “WHAMMO! Can you hear me now “Spiritual Self”???, ringing ever so loudly through your head. It’s almost laughable if you can get through the initial shock and pain of it all. In fact, if you are aware enough you might be able to even appreciate it as it’s happening. It is after all, proof that there is something bigger than the “ego self” at work here.
There’s nothing like the feeling of a new “budding” relationship! Those first months of absolute bliss, head over heals, feelings of being “IN LOVE”. In the infancy of a relationship there’s still the uncertainty of “where it’s going” and there’s a lot of figuring out the other person and a slow unveiling of who YOU truly are.
So here’s the deal. After some of the initial glow starts to wear off and both people slip into the routine of being together, things start to change. The relationship slowly starts to morph into more of a “family” type relationship. You know, the kind where you love each other and KNOW IT so you become a little more reckless with your interactions?
Here’s 7 WAYS TO KEEP IT FRESH!
These seemingly simple things can make a HUGE difference in how your relationship feels. My partner Tom and I have been together for 12 years and we pretty much follow these 7 principles. We are happy and honestly never fight. I know that he has my back and he knows I have his. It’s wonderful to be treated special and with such care every single day by the person I love, that there is no way I would give him anything less in return.
It’s simple really. Treat your Lover like the most special person in the world and enjoy a long and healthy relationship!
Loving Life and Living in Peace!!
