Life is busy. Most people multi-task all day, juggling multiple things in their lives: work, family, friends, obligations. I am no different. I often feel overwhelmed. But what about love… do we make time for love?
It’s not something we are taught. We are raised to be good people, get a good education and a good job, be an upstanding member of society and raise a family to be proud of. But what about love? Where does time for love come in?
Loving someone doesn’t have to be a full-time job. Don’t believe the Hallmark advertisers… it does not have to be a over-written card, a diamond or a $70 dozen roses.
It really is the little things: a simple text, a quick phone call, even an email can express love. Try sending your sweetie a Top Ten list of the reasons you love them. It’s eye-opening and rewarding for both sender and receiver. Simple gestures like lighting candles at the dinner table make everyday moments special. I recently received a You Tube link of beautiful song from my sweetie. It absolutely made my day.
If you have the time and resources, plan a special day or weekend trips with your sweetheart, just the two of you. You’ll be surprised how much you connect with each other without outside distractions.
Life is short so tell your loved-ones that you do indeed love them. Make time for love… after all, all you need is love.
