Happy New Year! Feeling excited about 2021?
Yeah, also…how’s your love life?
Did you make a resolution to “have a more connected relationship”?
We make resolutions to acquire something (new body! new job! new relationship! new whatever!).
But…most of us don’t resolve to take amazing care of what we already have. How many of us add “make sure to get car oil changed on schedule” or “pay taxes on time” to our goal list?
Why not? Not sexy, that’s why! And it’s common that people take their romantic relationship for granted…until it’s too late.
Your 2022 relationship can be ah-mah-zing, if you’re willing to make it a priority this year.
Fun quiz time! Answer the following simple-yet-powerful questions:
1. On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate your relationship today? Answer instinctively and honestly from your gut! 1 is “horrible, the worst” and 10 would be “they just made a movie about it with Idris Elba, it’s so dang good”.
2. Why did you rate it that number? Again, be honest with your brain’s first answer.
3. What would make it a 10?
Now, do those things you listed for #3 and thank me later. As if it were so easy!
Relationships are like taking care of your body. You learn about food and nutrition. You try different exercises to learn what results you get. There’s a learning curve when you try something new. Success comes from being patient with ourselves plus never giving up.
Relationships are like getting and staying fit, or buying and maintaining a home. It can be a JOY to pay attention to those aspects of our lives.
Consider making a relationship goal this year.
Wishing you lots of love,
