Grand gestures are fun. They can make the heart soar. But if they only happen once or twice a year, what’s the fun in that? Little gestures are not as splashy but they are like raindrops of love, so let your love rain down. When people lose a partner whom they’ve loved dearly, it’s not the grand gestures that they miss. It’s the little things. It’s that perfect cup of coffee in the morning. It’s loading the dishwasher and actually turning it on. I’s checking to make sure the front door is locked before you go to sleep at night. It’s the hugs. It’s holding hands at the movie show. It’s what doesn’t need be said while strolling along the seaside because their eyes say it all. Don’t just settle for few raindrops of love ask for oceans of love, because you deserve to be loved with grand waves and little waves of love.
Here is another way to look at it the little things are like the nails that hold a house together. You don’t see them, but they’re doing their work. And like nails, the little things don’t insert themselves without some help. Each one may not take a lot of energy but if you put just enough energy into the little things, over time you’ll build a great big love. You’ve been taught to say “thank you” for presents, but do you acknowledge the little presents your sweetheart gives your every day? You can never say ” thank you” too many times, thought most people don’t say it enough.
You’re not a trash can . . .
Some days you may push love aside. Other times love may push you around. Just make certain in your heart and in your head that you are working in unison when creating your canvass of love. since you “fall” in love, many people treat love as if it were some strange beast over which they have no control. But you have more say over your emotions than you think. Watch a sad movie and you’ll cry. Dance to your favorite tune and your spirit will soar. You can have a similar effect on the setting of your love dial.
While love can be overwhelming at times, or so subtle you can’t tell it’s their, that doesn’t absolve you from using self-control. Even if you are head over heals in love, you should keep some control, or you risk driving away the person you adore. There are times to go overboard and other times to bank that excess love. And at the other extreme, if your schedule is crammed twenty-four hours a day, you can’t forget that you have a sweetheart who had needs that must be meet. Sure, there are days when you can take out a loan that you promise to pay back with interest, but you can also overextend that type of credit and wind up bankrupt.
You don’t need any special skills to be an artist at love. You just need to be aware that you deserve to be loved and love by that one person special man or woman who you call sweetheart. That makes you want to shout “I love you” across the room. Think of yourself as a painter, a painter of love, a painter who mixes colors to come up with various shades. It’s the same with love sometimes love can become boring if it becomes to monotone. If you are just going through the motions to keep your one and only from ending the relationship then you are short-changing yourself and them. It is far better to get to the root of your problems and see if the love you once felt can be restored.
If you’re in a loving and healthy relationship then take a few minuets and image yourself as a painter of love who mixes colors to come up with various shades. What shades best express how you feel about your sweetheart? Maybe shades of passionate red, or succulent deep purples or soft romantic pinks or maybe all the colors of the rainbow express your feelings of love and passion. You must do the same with love because even love can be boring if it’s always the same old routine. So, some days, even if you’re not feeling overly romantic but vary much in love with your sweetheart turn up the heat and create a rainbow of love. Shout! “I love you “and put an extra oomph into the way you kiss them in the morning. Not only will your sweetheart appreciate your use of the brighter colors in your palette of love, but it will probably change your mood as well.
