When Valentine’s Day Hurts

+ enlarge
Valentine’s Day can be painful if you and your partner have lost that loving feeling. It can happen to all of us at one time or another. Even the closest couple can simply be stressed out and not as attentive as they were in the beginning of their relationship.

If you are reading this and you long for romance that used to be there for you, you can change the tide today.

All you need is a piece of poster board and some red construction paper. If you don’t have any poster board, the Sunday comic section makes a great substitute. Post the sheet in your kitchen and start to fill it with notes. On each heart write something you LIKE about your partner.

I know he may be acting like a spoiled brat! I don’t care. The fact is, when all you focus on is how badly he is acting, that is all you see! There ARE some things that you still like about him. Take action and write them down. Invite him to do the same. And, if you have kids, ask them to play the game also.

When everyone is busy thinking about the things they like about each other, you will bring LOVE back in to your home. LOVE is bigger than romance. LOVE is more important than who is right and who is wrong.

You maybe thinking … that is not fair, why do I have to be the one to act. Hey, shape up! Why not you. Take action to bring some loving thoughts into your family. LOVE warms and changes things and every step toward LOVE pays off in a major way.

So, grab your markers, scissors and Elmer’s Glue and get started. Be a savvy soul mate this Valentine’s Day. You will be glad you did!
