Positive Statements on Love:

“Love works a different way in different minds, the fool it enlightens and the wise it blinds.”
-John Dryden

“Just because somebody doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with everything they got.”

“It's amazing how i still get butterflies when I know I'll see you, how I still smile when I hear your voice, and you still take my breath away when you walk in.”
-Amber Fuller

Growing Love

Kirsten, age 10, said: "No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with." I’m sure to some it can feel that way. Love is splendid when it is first growing. Everything is new. The sun shines brighter and flowers bloom even if it is the dead of winter. Then, after a while, the day-to-day sets in. Love plateaus toward routine. For some couples, this is the beginning of the end. On this Valentines, I challenge you to take up an experiment in your relationship. There are two tasks, scientifically tested, that have proved to grow love. Both are based on positivity. Both will stretch your mind. Both will help you to shift your perspective of the one you are already ‘stuck’ with.

The first is a list. Make a list each day from February 14th through March 14th of the five things you are grateful for in your partner. Remember the things that made you laugh, the conversations and secrets shared, the way he talks and the way she walks. In 29 days, you will have compiled 145 things to be appreciative of in your partner. These may be things you noticed during the day, qualities you have admired or memories you have. If your partner will create a list of their own, all the better, if not, just doing this for yourself can make a huge difference.

The second is to share a new experience with your love. Psychology researchers have found that attraction and affection increases when we have new experiences with someone else. Going to a new restaurant, trying a new sport, taking up an intriguing form of dance, traveling somewhere different can all spark feelings that may have faded into the background. New experiences give us new things to talk about, personal feelings of confidence and an adrenaline rush of risk for being in a foreign situation. Make a plan and whisk your love off to a new adventure to celebrate Valentine’s day and grow some love.
