Last week Shane and I celebrated 8 years of marriage. When I posted this on our stories, I had people messaging me and asking for me to give a tips for creating and maintaining a happy relationship. My first reaction was “ekkk neither of us are relationship experts!” But it got me thinking about couples we know of all ages, from our newlywed friends to our dear neighbours who have been together for over 60 years. It made me analyse how they interact, how they are themselves and how they make it work.
There is a misconception that once you meet your soul mate it will be all rainbows, unicorns and butterflies, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, when you met your ‘one’ the real work only just begins. Because when you enter a conscious partnership with your one, there is nowhere to hide. They call you to rise and will call you out on your BS, I know Shane certainly does! They reflect back to you things that need to be looked at as they are your biggest spiritual assignments.
Like most things in life, the more you put in, the more you get out of it. To get more love you need to give more love. We need to support nourish and care for everything in our lives- our plants, our pets our , our health and relationships with our lovers are no different, we must put time effort and love into them to reap the benefits of a happy and loving relationship. The best way to do this is schedule a date day- quality time doing what you love. For us this is a gym or yoga session, going to the beach or a nice meal together. Another thing we’ve done is ban phones and TV when we have dinner together, it forces you to connect.
SHARE A PASSION
We became so much closer when we began sharing our passions- cooking, health, happiness and of course the furbabies. When you are working as a team on your passions it brings you gether and is super attractive for your significant other to see you inspired, driven and pursuing something with your all.
