Put love first. When you concentrate on your job, you succeed. When you invest time learning about a career skill, your favorite sports team, even more about your friends, you become an expert in those fields. What about the Arena of Love? Don’t you think you should spend more time and effort in that area? You do want a fabulous love life…don’t you? When it comes to your relationship, are you the student, reluctant to crack your textbooks…or the connoisseur?
It’s no secret, your relationship is not something you can set & forget, just “wishing” for the best. You have to do something about it, growing the intimacy in your life…even when you’re not in the mood. I’m not saying you should look at this like work. Love isn’t a chore…though sometimes it may feel that way. Have fun with cultivating deeper intimacy in your life. Treat it like a new fascination, looking for opportunities to get back to romantic playtime. The feelings will follow, especially when you and your partner begin to turn up the steam.
When you put love first, you concentrate on it, you focus on it. You’re putting God and the Universe, as well as yourself and your partner on notice that you’re serious about having intimacy in your life. Begin doting on your relationship as you would a favorite hobby. Have a weekly Date Night, where you and your mate get back to your romantic roots. Read up on the latest regarding intimacy, relationships, and—yummy—sex! Create a Dream Board with your partner, pasting pictures of what you want your relationship to look like on a board suitable for framing. Do whatever voodoo you need do, but…
