How do you make love last a lifetime? You refuse to settle for any less! How do people quit smoking and NEVER do it again, they raise their standards and settle for nothing less. How do some people decide to become physically fit and healthy? They raise their standards and settle for nothing less. How do people stay in love for a lifetime? They raise their standards and settle for nothing less.
Love is so much more than a feeling, it is something you do even when you dont feel like doing it. When the person you love hurts you, you love them anyway. When they are upset and crying, you love them anyway. When they say they dont want to see you, you love them anyway. Love is unconditional. In fact.... when the person you love is freaking out or having a bad time... that is when you have to be MORE present and assure them that NO MATTER WHAT, you will be there to love them.
We love our children uncconditionally, we need to love our partners the same way.
The same way you could never kick a puppy, is the same way you will never be hurt for loving someone. If you truly love your spouse, through all the good and bad, through security and insecurity, through laughs and crying, through riches and poverty, through adventure and dull times, and always put one another first no matter what... you will have an amazing full relationship that will last a lifetime. You can create An Inspired Life together and that is worth everything!
