Bonjour December! Wow, we have come this far towards the end of 2014. This month is actually one of my favorite month of the year; I have my birthday coming up, the best holiday is around the corner (Christmas Day) and plus it’s the last chapter of 2014. Speaking of chapters in the book called Life, how’s your book of Life coming along for 2014? Let me get a little specific: What I really meant to ask, is how’s the book of your “Romance” Life coming along for 2014? Well, whatever your answer may be-it will not change the matter of how your romantic life can still end up being good or even better for the holidays and for the new year. Below, I have listed ways for each days of the week to fall in love again. If you are not in a relationship yet, no worries! This will be a head-start for you to prepare yourself into being in a healthy relationship, when the right time comes along. You may never know, your right time just might be before the end of this year! Always keep hope alive! *Wink–Wink*
This is for the couples who have been going out for quite some time now and have always stick to their “traditional” routines. The same ole date night activities; going to the movies, eating at your usual restaurants and bowling or game nights at home. Then you have the couples who prefer staying in their comfort zones. They would rather stay home,wake up to the same breakfast on the table, reading the newspaper before heading to work, or surfing the online web while sipping bitter coffee.Yeah, I simply get it. You don’t want to change if there’s nothing wrong to even begin with, right?
Um, yeah right! You may not want a change but you sure do NEED a change! Especially when you’re in a relationship. It’s always good to switch things up every now and then. Instead of setting up a date for the weekends (typical date schedules), how about setting up a date during the week? Depending on how busy your time schedule conflicted between school or work, you can still squeeze in time for your significant other. Going out on a date does not have to be during the night-time. You can simply set up a date during the day, choosing what time best fits both of your schedules to catch a lunch date at a new hot spot. Also, you can make it as sweet and simple of planning a date after work/school by deciding to paint a new color that will bring out a nice feeling in your home. Think outside of the box and use your imagination to spice things up.
In your head, you’re probably thinking:
“Boring Monday, I’m really not in the mood to do anything before or during work.”
“Who goes salsa dancing on a regular Tuesday?”
“Wednesday is hump day, I might as well wait until the weekend to turn-up”
“Omg, it’s only Thursday? Turn down until the weekend.”
Well, when there’s a will…there is a way. It’s time to reintroduce romance daily. I have created a special theme for each day, Monday-Thursday to be exact. Hopefully, after reading the followings, you will get a clearer understanding of looking at a normal weekdays differently and will also appreciate each day more…
1.) ManCaterMonday (MCM)
Boring Monday does not have to be boring, it can be ManCaterMonday. Cater your man girl! Let every Monday be dedicated to your man; wake up early in the morning to make his favorite breakfast and surprise him during break/lunch time by joining him and picking up the bill for both meals. Take his request and ask him what is it that he likes for you to do on his day. Instead of going shopping for your therapy needs, take the time off on Monday to shop for things that your man love. Buy him a little gift to remind him how much you really appreciate him (the little things count the most). For the fellas, allow your girl to take care of you. Open up the suggestion to have a special day planned for his/her. Give her an idea of what you would like to do on a regular Monday.Prepare your day on Sunday or earlier, check online for places you would like to visit; whether it’s an activity you would like to partake in or a nice jazzy spot you will like to just chill and relax. Write down a list of food you would prefer eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Monday’s will be your day and figure out the perfect day to cater to your girl.If you ask me, let everyday be a catering day for your girl!
2.) TellAndShowTuesday (TST)
Club going up, on a Tuesday…so why can’t you? Tell and show Tuesday! The perfect day to sit down and communicate with your significant other. Talk to him/her and tell them exactly how you feel. Take turns expressing each other feelings and lay out everything on the tablet that needs to be changed/addressed. After you and your partner exhale all that needs to be said, show how much you care for one another. Showing can be anything from giving a back message to watching your favorite shows on T.V. Action speaks louder than words. If you said some hurtful things to your spouses and you knew you was wrong for something you’ve done in the past, put it all behind and apologize. Talk it out and show that you care! Most importantly, provide space from each other and show that you can TRUST one another. If your man/girl would like to hang out with their friends, let them go out with their friends. You have to understand the part of being in a healthy relationship involves pure trustworthy. How can you be in a relationship without trust? Show effort in the If you love him/her, tell and SHOW them. If you trust him/her,tell and SHOW them. If you can’t live without her and you know that she’s the only girl right for you, (fellas) tell and SHOW them. Put a ring on it! *Wink–wink*.
3.) WeTimeWednesday (WTW)
Ladies, we’re not going to make this about us: WomenCaterWednesday (WCW). Just as I mentioned previously, everyday should be a day we should be catered. But for this month, I’m going to be generous and spread the love of fairness in the air. It’s only fair to share this day for the both of you. Whatever plan that your man have with Tyrone on this day, must be cancelled! It’s OUR day, advise your significant other to cancel any plans he had with the boys or any plan he have throughout this day. If it’s not pertaining to us, it gotta GO! Being in a relationship, it is REQUIRED to have some “We” time. Release all of your negative energy by going out and have a good time with each other. Take dance lessons and dance out your frustrations or head over to someone’s event and party off your aggravations TOGETHER. Make sure that he/she is in good care and keep it that way!
4.) ThankGodThursday (TGT)
Last but not least, be thankful. Take this day to thank God for all that he has done for you and your significant other. Set up a bible study session to get connected spiritually. Forgive one another and allow no distraction in the middle between you, your significant other and God. Acknowledge only the goodness of being together and apply words of wisdom to encourage each other. Guide each other towards the right path and be sincere. If one may fall short, be supportive and remain lovable. Taking the time off to focus spiritually with the Savior will increase peace, love and happiness.
As for Fridays and the weekend (which is normally the days to rekindle or spark love in the air), continue to go out on date nights during the weekend. But don’t just wait until the weekend to fall in love again. Fall in love with your spouse DAILY. Think outside of the box and try something new for a change. Love is a beautiful thing, don’t let others consume you into thinking otherwise. If you had your heart-broken in the past few months, rejoice. Realize that there is someone out there who can treat you better and will give you the world. If you’re having trouble in a current relationship, be the bigger person to pick up the phone to call. Whatever the case may be, it’s not worth having to ruin a perfect holiday or a new year by not spending quality time with your lover. Take the first step to loving again and make sure that you keep it at a repeating cycle. May this month be filled with love, joy and laughter for you and your lover. End this year chapter with a bang and make the end of your love story for this year, a HAPPY ending. Love again and again until the new year and never stop the power to love someone. Love conquers all!
