5 ways to put a smile on your partners face TODAY| Sav Between the Sweat

“Treat them like you’re still trying to win them & you’ll never lose them”

      It’s no secret…relationships are not always a walk in the park, matter of factunless that walk is filled with bills, consistent communication, or the daily battle of balancing your ambition and your love for your partner then i’m not sure if ANY relationship can be considered a walk in the park, LOL! Just being honest here! 

that being said, if you truly want to set the tone for a healthy relationship that will compliment and not complicate your life it takes effort on BOTH ends…and if we wanna get real JLO here “My love don’t cost a thing”, SO….

 

5 ways to put a smile on your partners face before your head hits the pillow tonight! 

p.s i’ll be throwing some pictures of Robby & I from over the years that you may or may not have seen in between the tips 😉 

1. THANK THEM (JUST BECAUSE)

I know that after being with my boyfriend for 5 years that there are certainly some things he does that I may take for granted…just recently I was going through some images on my phone & found some memories that while i’m sure I thanked Robby at the time I don’t know if I expressed how much the consistent gestures TRULY mean to me. Moments like that make me realize I have so much to thank Robby for on the daily even when he does nothing at all.  So, Thank your partner for just being THEM and being there for YOU!

2. LOOK THEM IN THE EYES

OK this might seem odd like…”I look at my partner everyday, Sav” but when is the last time that you looked at them …you know, like it was the first time you saw them THAT WAY…something as simple as catching their eye and flashing a smile can make a HUGE difference in the connection you have for the day and set the tone for more smiles & says a million messages without saying anything at all!

 

3. “TAKE OUT THE TRASH”

First let me tell you I grew up in a household of WOMEN…my mother, my sister and I doing absolutely everything from grouting the tile in the kitchen (seriously) to painting each others nails! Long story short: i’m not afraid to get my hands dirty,  but Robby NEVER let’s me take out the trash he says “its a mans job” ::insert feminist eye roll here:: LOL but truly I love when he feels needed even if it’s as small as that!  That being said, when i take out the trash or do something he normally handles he’s 10x more thankful then i could have imagined because he knows i went out of my way to do it. So take a load off your partner and handle a chore as a gesture of love just for the hell of it!

4. COMPLIMENT THEM

“Treat them like you’re still trying to win them & you’ll never lose them” 

It’s funny because we can love someone SO much we spend our time, our money & our most precious moments with them often thinking that’s enough for our loved ones to know how we feel about them, and perhaps it is, but why not step it up a notch?!

Something as small as reminding them that you LOVE when they wear that scent & you can’t wait until you can hug them just so you can smell their neck again, maybe it’s that you think they look EXTREMELY attractive when they just got done with a workout or fixing the faucet…OPEN YOUR MOUTH, remind them of all the things that spark your fire!

5. …PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY!

This is hands down the hardest part for me especially as someone who has developed form of a career from what social media opportunities bring & i think we have this notion that “once I finish THIS…I will put my phone down” NEWS FLASH: YOUR INBOX IS NEVER EMPTY! There will ALWAYS be one more email…A new comment to respond to, or JUST ONE MORE text… but, SECOND NEWS FLASH you actually need to set the phone down to be able to see that beautiful person in front of you.

While there’s always more work there IS NOT always MORE TIME…there are no promised moments & I don’t know about you but I don’t want to know the feeling of wishing I would’ve been more present if god forbid something happens to the person I love more then words…Yes your work is important but it wont make or break you…they don’t want a PERFECT partner they just want a HAPPY  partner!

 

The more I let go of what I THINK is supposed to happen the more control I actually gain….My priorities are shifting and i’m not complaining!
