Hello Everyone! Today is a relaxing Sunday, woot!
I am having one, nope, two of the battles in life now, are you having one too? Don’t give up! Battles are always tough, but I am sure we will emerge as an even stronger person when we end the battles in victories! 😀
Without further ado, Day-10, let’s go!
Day 10: [Love]
- Imagine your ideal romantic relationship.
“For singles: What’s your dream relationship like? How would you describe it?
For those in a relationship: Identify your ideal relationship with your partner. It doesn’t matter whether these qualities are currently present in your relationship — simply write them down.”
For me, my ideal relationship with my partner is of love, respect, trust, understanding, chemistry, lifelong learning of life itself and appreciation.
All are self-explanatory perhaps except “lifelong learning of life itself”. Be it educational context or improving personal wellbeing as a whole, I am extremely interested and can see myself indulging in lifelong learning perhaps till the day I depart. Thus, my soulmate and partner in life has to be someone who shares the same vision as I do – to constantly improve oneself, because learning never ends.
- Identify simple steps you can make to this relationship happen.
It will be just two simple, yet it-will-be-a-journey-to-achieve steps:
i. High Quality, Regular Communication: I need to constantly communicate with my partner on how and what I am feeling… this is of vast importance. One shouldn’t expect anyone to be able to read your minds… if you have that in your life right now, that is a blessing, but if you haven’t, don’t feel dejected! Dramas/ movies and fictions made this a “mandatory” criterion and beautify love relationship for the sake of viewership.
ii. Be the person I want my partner to be: Simple, yet the toughest to achieve out of the two steps. If I want my partner to be understanding, I have to be understanding towards him first. If I want my partner to trust me, I have to give him my trust first.
One cannot expect the other party to be “perfect” when one couldn’t even achieve half of the qualities one has listed out, yes?
- Take action!
Alrighty! On my mark!
- Say today’s affirmation.
“Close your eyes. Visualize yourself in the exact relationship you just painted in Step #1. Both of you are holding each other’s hands and strolling down the beach together, talking, smiling, and laughing. After some time, you stop to hug him/her, and he/she gladly returns your hug. At this moment, both of you are locked in a tight, passionate embrace. Feel the love, excitement, and happiness arising in your heart as all this is happening.”
“From this moment on, I’m attracting my soulmate, and in time to come we’ll meet and be forever bound in love and light.”
(For those in a relationship):
“I’m in a loving relationship filled with unconditional love, trust, and respect.”
It is easy as abc to list down the criteria and qualities you want your partner to have. It is also as easy as 123 to pinpoint the qualities in which your current partner is lacking of.
However, it may not be as easy when you gotta think and come up of the action steps to working towards your ideal relationship.
Empty talks bring no ideal future. It is time for all of us to be more conscious and aware in our everyday life and interaction not only with our partners, but also with the people around us. Once we are self-aware, we are able to recognise good/ bad points of ourselves and the other party, and come up with action plans to rectify. 😀
Good luck 🙂
