Love You Long Time: 1 Simple Tip To Keep The Love Alive.

After spending more than 13 years with my partner in life, I’ve learnt that there are many ways to help stay in love. If there’s one simple thing that really helps keep the flame alive, this is it.

Only say “I love you” when you mean it.

Forget about waiting for the perfect moments to say “I love you”. Perfect moments happen rarely, and with planned dates, saying “I love you” to your partner some time during the date can be pretty much expected. Don’t just say “I love you” because your partner said “I love you” first. Don’t just say “I love you” because you say it every time you leave the house. Don’t just say “I love you” because of  routine.

What is more important is the recognition that every moment spent with your partner of love is a chance to be grateful that you are in love, that you are in a position to give love.

When you want to say “I love you”, ask yourself why, and tell her at least one simple thing you appreciate about her. It could be because of her lovely skin, it could be because she’s consoling her friend over the phone, it could be because of how she smells when she didn’t bathe, or simply because she’s a klutz.

Do it randomly. While you’re watching TV together. While you’re in the heading to the supermarket. While you’re sweeping the floor. The small element of surprise will make your declaration of love even more meaningful, and tie you in onto your next random “I love you”.

What’s important here is that you appreciate the smallest simple things, and communicate your gratitude clearly. If she becomes suspicious and asks you “Why do you suddenly say that?! Did you do something wrong?!”, just give her the truth, that you love her because of the small (or big) thing you appreciate her for.

All this may somewhat sound silly. But the truth of love never fails, especially when it comes straight from the heart.

Go show some love to your partner today.

The Beginning of The Pursuit of Awesomeness

beginning, journey, path

I woke up this morning – exactly the same as every other morning. The alarm went off, snoozed it twice, rolled out of bed and did my morning routine.

Is it going to be another day of thinking about doing this?” I thought to myself.

Standing there in the home office, I took some deep morning breaths, looked at my glorious glass board of life principles and lessons I’ve picked up over the years on personal development, and glared at the possible path I laid to becoming awesome.

I have been contemplating over this blog for some time now, but fear and limiting beliefs have been holding me back from pushing my boundaries towards contributing to the world through the power of the Internet.

I didn’t almost die yesterday or have some kind of epiphany which may have somehow pushed my mind over the edge into doing it. (albeit it has happened more times than I’d like in the past, another story for a future blog) I feel it’s more of a smoother learning curve, and it’s finally about time to do it.

Today is the day to take some massive killer action!” I screamed at myself (in my head), as I my mind went blank on what and how to even begin writing a blog.

I actually do have a long list of topics I’d love to write about and share with everyone, but as I sit down in front of my laptop, it all just goes blank. I get lost in the paralysis of overwhelming information on how to do it, and how to even begin.

So, I figured the best thing I could do for now is to just apply something I’ve picked up from my very first self-help mentor:

“Begin with the end in mind.” – Stephen Covey

This blog is dedicated to track my journey towards becoming as awesome as possible, but more importantly, to hopefully inspire others to pursue their own way of being awesome. Being awesome can mean many different things to a lot of people, but we can all agree that being in awe would mean feeling a great sense of wonder and inspiration.

If we are not living our lives towards being in awe of ourselves and those around us, then mediocrity will slowly and silently take over. Life will very quickly feel like a routine on a random physical/biological autopilot that has been programmed into our minds through a vast world of limitless distractions, secretly holding you back from your dreams of greatness.

 

So, I have decided that I will post blogs and articles on anything that will inspire the sense of awe, and importantly –  the lessons I’ve learnt and am learning from this journey of life. It is through these life lessons, that we discover and find the very essence of our own awesomeness. I will try to put them in my own words in the hope to help everyone pursue their own way of leading an amazing life.

I hope this blog will serve you well, and that it will be a door to your own pursuit of awesomeness.
