We all hear how, sometimes, it is the little things that matter in life. That statement is very true, especially in relationships that involve love. Whether you’re married or in a relationship that leads up to the big “M” word, the little things can be memorable. When you think about your significant other and reminisce about when you “first” fell in love, do you ever think about how he or she used to do little things that made you smile? For instance, sliding a little closer to you at night in the bed just to be under you? Rushing back in the house before leaving in the morning, just because they forgot to give you a good-bye kiss. They text you, “I love you” in the mid-afternoon. When we didn’t have cell phones, maybe they made an afternoon call to just say I love you. When you think about those little things, don’t you smile to yourself? Of course you do.
Let’s talk about the little things you used to do. Remember when you used to stop at the store to grab yourself something to drink? What did you do? You also grabbed your spouse’s or partners favorite drink. Think of how you would be driving together. You’re just listening to a song on the radio, and you look over to them only to find them looking at you. Why? Because some little endearing words of love were said in that song and it touched you both at the same time. Remember when you used to walk through the mall and you would slide your hand into his or her hand? These little things were, more than likely, not overlooked. Go back to the basics and find joy in your relationship.
We may not always say with our mouths what we want, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still like the little considerations. A simple hug, a small forehead kiss, a special meal, a hand rub, a neck massage, an I love you, a smile, a hug from behind, help with a meal or just keeping yourself beautiful or handsome for your loved one goes a long way. Don’t let that side of you melt away. You are appreciated for the small things. Click here if you missed the article on how to make a Love Calendar of events. It helps, so try it.
