Day 14: Love Takes Delight

The opening of Day 14’s pages say that one of the most important things you would learn in the Love Dare challenge is that you should lead with your heart instead of letting your emotions take the wheel they should be in backseat and you in total control. It isn’t reasonable to think you are going to want to love someone 24/7. He is to grouchy or she gets on your nerves. It’s easy to just get aggravated and the person. By ourselves “we’ll lean toward being disapproving of one another” the pages state.

When you first find that love you are looking for or you just get married you enjoy being with each other and letting people see you together; but, as the relationship goes along it because less new. That is when we have to make a conscious choice to continue to delight in the person we decided to spend the rest of our life with or to fall into that downward spiral that ends up leading to that spilt neither of you saw happening at the beginning. Can you remember why you fell in love? Instead of being grouchy you should remember to once again laugh and to flirt like you were once again getting to know each other and to dream of the future because you to have the ability to change it.

I won that year. I think it was because of him.

Day 14 is one of the important days to remember. It is hopefully the turning point because it says, “if you’ve been delighted before –which you were when you married – you can be delighted again.” The choice is entirely yours because sometimes we have to teach ourselves to once again find what we loved about that person.

Because the heart never forgets. (2004)

Today’s Dare
Purposefully neglect an activity you would normally do
so you can spend quality time with your spouse.
Do something he or she would love to do or a project
they’d really like to work on.
Just to be together.
