THE POWER OF APPRECIATION
January 17, 2019
The best way to appreciate your partner is just to be there. To really BE there. Be present and supportive, understanding and caring. This might seem like a daunting task but just remember these three underused phrases and your relationship will blossom and grow.
Between work schedules, kids and household chores your gratitude towards each other often get lost in the chaos. Acknowledging the sacrifices your partner makes or the small tasks they do every day makes your partner feel heard. It shows your gratefulness. This is especially important for couples who have been together a long time. It is easy to forget to say thank you, because certain things become expected, which in turn leaves your partner feeling underappreciated and alone. The two simple words of thankfulness can have gigantic effects on a relationship.
I LOVE YOU
The three most powerful words in any language. Say I love you as frequently and as spontaneously as possible. Telling someone you love them is a sign of commitment and appreciation. It is a celebration. Be careful not to say I love you out of habit; mean it every time. Respect the effect these words will have on your partner. Sometimes a text message or call, simply to tell your partner you love to them, is enough to change everything. The small things are the most important things.
These two words do not always have to be spoken out loud. Simple acts of kindness like a cup of tea when your partner is sick, a hug when you know they had a bad day or just simple taking over some of their chores when they are drowning in work are enough. By recognizing what your partner is going through will give them the strength to face it. You don’t have to solve all their problems, just sit there and hold their hand.
Love isn’t all about grand gestures and big events. Love is found in small simple acts of kindness. So love, appreciate and cherish one another.

I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable,
and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and
I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
