Thinking of someone else might not come naturally at first. But the more often you can put “we” before “me”, the easier it will become. Thoughtfulness is about giving more than you take, and keeping your lover at the forefront of your mind you will start to think automatically of his or her needs and feelings first. This mindful generosity fosters mutual appreciation, respect, and love-creating the perfect environment for romance and intimacy to flourish.
Make a commitment to doing something thoughtful for your partner a few times a week. That doesn’t mean bringing home chocolates and roses(Although it doesn’t hurt). It simply involves doing something selfless or sweet. Whether it’s making the bed or sending him or her the perfect I love you email for no reason in the middle of the day. Just taking five minutes out your day to do something nice for your partner can improve the climate of your love.
Even when you have everything else on your mind-feeding the children, bills to pay, a job to do– make thoughtfulness toward your lover a priority each and every day. It will create positive changes in your relationship and beyond! Until next time……..
