“You can deepen your love daily, not through great acts of romanticism but through small acts of great love.” ~ Luminita D. Saviuc
Deepen Your Love
I have always loved this idea of doing small things with great love. There is nothing intimidating about that, is there? In fact, this is something we can all do, no matter where we are and no matter who we are. And the beautiful thing about it is that we can apply this magical formula to every area of our lives, our relationships including and get incredible results.
Since I consider myself a friend and lover of Leonardo Buscaglia‘s wisdom, I thought it would be a great idea to take his beautiful creation called, A Start and share it with you as 9 daily reminders to deepen your love.
9 Daily Reminders to Deepen Your Love
1. Try not to solve all of your life problems at once.
“Each day, I promise myself not to try to solve all of my life problems at once – nor shall I expect you to do so;
2. Remind yourself to learn something new each day.
Starting each day, I shall try to learn something new about me and about you and about the world I live in, so that I may continue to experience all things as if they had been newly born;
3. Communicate your joy as well as your despair.
Starting each day, I shall remember to communicate my joy as well as my despair, so that we can know each other better;
4. Really listen.
Starting each day, I shall remind myself to really listen to you and to try to hear your point of view and to discover the least-threatening way of giving you mine, remembering that we are both growing and changing in a hundred different ways;
5. Do not demand perfection.
Starting each day, I shall remind myself that I am a human being and not demand perfection of you until I am perfect, so you’re safe;
6. Become more aware of the beautiful things in your world.
Starting each day, I shall try to be more aware of the beautiful things in our world — I’ll look at the flowers, I’ll look at the birds, I’ll look at the children, I’ll feel the cool breezes, I’ll eat good food — and I’ll share these things with you;
7. Reach out and touch them gently.
Starting each day, I shall remind myself to reach out and touch you, gently, with my words, my eyes and with my fingers, because I don’t want to miss feeling you;
8. Dedicate yourself again to the process of being a lover.
Starting each day, I shall dedicate myself again to the process of being a lover — and then see what happens;
9. If you miss love, you miss life!
You know, I’m really convinced that if you were to define love, the only word big enough to engulf it all would be “Life” — LOVE IS LIFE — in all its aspects…And if you miss love, you miss life! Please don’t!”
