All our lives we’ve been told ‘actions speak louder than words’ and we are quick to use that phrase when it comes to a fight or breakup. However, where we often fail in our relationships is acknowledging our own actions versus our own words especially when it comes to how we prioritize our relationship, or the happiness of our significant others.
There are two main things I want to focus on here: time and priorities
Where do you spend most of your time?
How do you prioritize your relationship?
How do you prioritize the happiness of your significant other?
After all, they are called “significant” for a reason. Now let’s dive in…
There are hundreds of articles out there about what people wished they would have done, or how and where they spent more of their time, before they died. More often than not, they wish they spent less time working their life away and more time with their loved ones. These stories never get easier to read, yet we are grateful for their life lessons and inspiration to make the most of life before it’s too late.
What I’m here to say is:
If your relationship is “most important” in your life, yet you spend a majority of the time doing things outside of your relationships, you’re doing it wrong. Remember, many life regrets are “wishing I spent more time with the ones I loved”. So to my original point, how much time are you setting aside with the ones you love, with your significant other whether it’s your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife? If you’re single, how much time do you spend being free, open to love, and loving yourself.
Again, ask yourself this: Where do you spend most of your time? Do you find yourself so busy working, or doing everything else, that you hardly have time set aside for quality time focused on love or your relationship?
Take notes: Make time, and I mean quality time, for love and your relationship.
I was going to go right into priorities, but I want to make sure you take time to digest this love nugget first!
So stay tuned for tomorrow’s post on prioritizing your relationship, especially when it comes to the happiness of your significant other, whether it’s your bf, gf, hubbie or wifey (yeah, that’s me getting my “hip lingo” down!)
