January 17, 2019
“The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And, if you find someone to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CELEBRATE YOUR ANNIVERSARY
1) It’s a Milestone.
2) It’s a chance to connect.
3) It’s a chance to reflect.
4) It’s an excuse to get away.
5) It’s a time to look towards the future.
For some couples, their wedding anniversary sometimes becomes an afterthought. However, celebrating your anniversary is important than you think... but the truth is, your wedding anniversary is extremely important, and you should always make an effort to celebrate it!
Can you remember the first time you've celebrated your wedding anniversary? How about the second, or the third time? For some couples, especially those who've been married a long time, celebrating their wedding anniversary becomes too routine. Sometimes, they even forego celebrating it entirely.
But the truth is, your wedding anniversary is extremely important, and you should always make an effort to celebrate it!
HERE ARE 3 REASONS WHY:
1. It's your own special way of commemorating your special day!
Your anniversary is a way for you as a couple to look back on your special day, and remember all of the fun and amazing moments that happened when you get married.
Try and recall the feelings that you had: the nervousness, the intense happiness, a bit of fear, and most of all, the love that you have for each other. Celebrating your anniversary is a way for you as a couple to look back after all the years you've been together, and to reminisce all of the good times that you've had.
2. It's a time to assess your relationship
Every year, you should as a couple, take the time to assess your marriage. Ask each other if there are things that you're not too happy about, or if there are some things that you can do better for your relationship.
You can also set goals as a couple, and plan for the things that you'll be doing for the next year. You may want to move to a bigger place, have more kids, or just make career plans.
Either way, you and your spouse should always look forward to the more amazing years that you'll have as a couple!
3. It's the time to celebrate your relationship
Your anniversary is a celebration. It's another year that you've been together as a married couple, so it's always a cause for celebration!
Give your spouse a nice gift, or a sweet message to make them feel special and appreciated. Don't think of your anniversary as just some day that you're required to celebrate. It's an important turning point in both your lives, and it's a celebration of your love for each other. Make sure to spend time together, and with your family during your anniversary. You'll be better for it in the long run.
