Falling in Love...

“Falling in love at first sight is understandable.
It’s staying in love that’s the miracle!”

Fifteen secrets for staying in love:

  • Look for reasons to laugh.
  • Count your together blessings, together.
  • Reminisce about why you fell in love in the first place.
  • Recall the problems you used to have and how you solved them together.
  • Anticipate doing something you both love to do.
  • Watch your favorite movie.
  • Take a long drive and listen to the music of your olden days.
  • Pray for each other.
  • Decide that unity is more important than being right.
  • Think of love as a verb: it’s something you do, not something you expect.
  • Forget about changing each other.
  • Take responsibility for your own happiness.
  • Speak kindly and lovingly to each other.
  • Hang out. You can’t work on togetherness if you’re never together.
  • Practice.
35 years ago we fell in love at first sight. It was fun. Now we fall in love over and over, as we gain insight. That is even better!
