There are 26 letters of the alphabet running from A to Z and each letter can teach us about love.
The letter A stands for Admire. Take time to admire your partner both mentally and physically.
When you first start dating you spend a lot of your time admiring each other, you watch their every move, visually learn every line on their face and listen intently to every thought they utter.
Have you heard the saying ‘familiarity breeds contempt’? Unfortunately over time we start to take our partner for granted, we know what they look like, their thoughts are no longer new to us and gazing lovingly at them for an hour seems like a waste of time.
Well it’s time to get back to admiring your partner. Take time every day to stop and look at your partner, don’t think about anything just look at them.
This is a person that loves you, they have invested their time, trust and love in you so appreciate it.
Fair enough they no longer seem as exciting as they were in your dating days but be honest, are you still as exciting?
You may even look at other people and think “I wish I was single again” but believe me after some time with that person you would be in exactly the same boat.
Your partner has seen you at your worst, they have listened to your boring stories and bad jokes, they took care of you when you were ill and they devote much of their life to looking after you … yet they are still there.
They may have a few more lines on their face or a pound or two extra on their hips but those changes have come with time together.When did you last admire your partners beauty, the beauty that attracted you to them in your dating days.
Your partner still has hopes and dreams … when was the last time you asked them about their ambitions in life. When did you last spend time really listening to them and admiring their thoughts?
Take some time, have a good look and remember why you fell in love with them in the first place.
Go on, have an admire of the person you love.
