Can We Take A New Look at Valentine's Day?
Gregory Godek's book "1001 Ways To Be Romantic" lists new and creative ways to spice up your romantic life. Seems kind of interesting, right?
One of the suggestions in the book is to give your partner a locket with your picture in it.
So let me ask you a brief question:
If you haven't told your partner that you love him or her in years, haven't sincerely asked about your partner's hopes and fears in years, nor given out a legitimate complement, is your partner going to appreciate a locket with your picture in it?!?!?!
I'd like to propose a different way of looking at the meaning of Valentine's Day. It is easy to understand, and taught in our Weekend Workshops (next one is Sunday 2/20/11).
Find a way, if only once a week, to genuinely acknowledge your partner.
- Give a complement - Ask about his/her favorite childhood memory - Clear some space in the calendar for "us-time", like when you were dating
These are just a couple ideas. In our workshop we give TONS more, and they reignite the feeling of dating again, even in relationships lasting 20+ years.
For those wanting to attend our next workshop, just use the code "Valentine" to get $15 off your registration. (Valid through midnight 2/14/11).
Hope to see you there!
