You can, you know.
Love, you know.
Find it, claim it, and revive it.
If you really want to – that is, if both of you really want to.
Sometimes one in the duo has to decide to take the lead and to actively love, to break the mundaneness of love that become passive, faded, or a bit neglected.
So, you wake up in the morning and think I love him.
Send a love wish his way as he starts the day. Say goodbye with a kiss and a hug.
Listen to the same old stories and complaints with new ears.
Listen as an ally/lover/friend.
Make the everyday things special.
Use the good china, cloth napkins, mute the lights or dine by candlelight.
Sit on the couch and watch a movie or show together and hold hands.
Read something out loud to him – part of a poem, a novel, and interesting article from the paper or a magazine.
Slip a love note into his wallet or pocket.
Send a text message of love.
When love goes missing, having been brushed aside because the world beckons and work and interests keep you busy, take a pause. Hang on to your love. Reclaim it. The way to get love back – front and center – is to love.
