When two people find each other, they share a bond that is their own. Their job is to protect this bond and never take each other for granted. To ensure the relationship is built on a solid foundation, the two people will give and receive gratitude and appreciation.
Truly appreciating someone in your life is about appreciating all the little gestures they share with you day-to-day. One grand gesture is not what a loving relationship is built on. A loving relationship is built with constant small gestures which provide a safe and secure space to grow together. A loving and secure relationship is a place where vulnerability and imperfection are accepted and celebrated. If your loved one is invested in making sure your day is just a little bit better, that person is definitely worth your attention and energy.
When two people respect each other, their relationship will grow in a healthy way. If your partner makes you a cup of tea in the morning, surprises you with your favorite dinner, washes your car or takes you out to see a movie you’ve been wanting to see – these are the gestures that express their love for you. They give of themselves to ensure your happiness and this is something that should always be acknowledged and appreciated.
As in any relationship, the admiration and appreciation must flow both ways. The special bond brings you so much joy that the effort will be worth it. The universe provides. What we give, we shall receive, therefore when we give of ourselves it gives back. Once you show your generosity in love and kindness it will come back in some surprising and mysterious ways. This is the gift of giving and this gift is appreciated on a daily basis. When showing appreciation for your partner is part of your daily life, you will never question the investment of time and energy required to maintain a loving relationship. You will know and feel the deep rewards it brings.
