Today marks one day until we celebrate the holiday of love!

6 of 7 Ways To Express Your Love

Decorate your love like you decorate your home. When you first move in to a new house you usually paint the walls a beautiful color, purchase new furniture and you may even plant a garden outside. What would happen if we tended to our relationships like we tend to our new homes? Malcolm X for example, used to create little treasure hunts around the house where he would leave letters & small gifts for her in random places throughout the house. Perhaps in the refrigerator, maybe in the bathroom or even in her closet. He never knew when she’d find the special treats but he was always expressing his love to her.

Meet Each Other All Over Again – create a new moment where you re-introduce yourself to your partner. One of you should plan to stay at a friend or family member’s house for a few days and literally date – from a distance – during that time. You could call him and tell him to meet you at Starbucks at 8 p.m. and have a conversation like you’ve never met before (but be totally honest – this isn’t the same as role playing & representing someone else). You’d be surprised what you’d learn about your partner if you step outside of yourself for a moment and look at him/her with fresh eyes.
