I am a person who is in love with Love. In my life I have only see a very few relationships last and those are the ones I longed to have.
Josh and I have been together for four years in September. Trust me when I say that I am no expert on love. I have been through my fair share of heartache and despair. Even going through a divorce and let me tell you that it only prepared me for an even better love.
At the beginning of any relationship we get butterflies and we feel all giggly like a little kid. We go on dates and show off for each other, we try to impress each other. As we spend more time together all of the fireworks seem to fade away.
We are still searching for that same kind of love, those same firework we felt in the beginning. We begin to distance ourselves because we EXPECT something. We expect there to be these huge moments of undying love poured out to us just like in the movies. However, in real life this is not always the case. We get frustrated with our significant others because we feel like they aren't doing enough for us but we fail to see what they are doing.
It may not be huge gestures but instead you may find those fireworks in the little moments. Maybe he remembered to make you coffee and fix it the way you like it. Perhaps he keeps your car filled up with gas that way you are never running out. If he is like Josh, you may find him grilling corn for you even though no one else likes it. It is not about how big your significant other serves you, it isn't about how much money they spend on you. They may be giving you a hug when you feel like you can't hold it together anymore. This is not a competition over whose husband, fiancée, boyfriend makes the most money, or who does the most things for each other. It is about remembering why you fell in love in the first place and just trying to catch glimpses of that daily. Sometimes days will seem cloudy and gray but remember that if you hold on to each other than you can overcome anything together. Never forget to look for the small things, and give each other some slack.
