We live in a time when things once they’re broken or lose their charm are tossed aside. We start looking for something new without even making an attempt to mend what is broken, to renew the lost charm. Sadly, the same goes for our relationships and married lives. Once monotony settles in, we don’t find our partners attractive for the same qualities we once went crazy about. There is no fun in cooking, talking and hanging out together. We start questioning, “Is love is meant to be like this – two people just doing the same things over and over again?” Precisely. Love has always been there with you, all this while. Only you had taken it for granted.
Love isn’t a grand, dreamy and chivalrous affair! Love is in the small things you do together, with each other and for each other. And if love is lost to you, here’s how you can find it again.
#1 simple hug
Yes. Never underestimate the soothing effect of a tight hug after a hell of a day at work. When you don’t have any words to calm your partner, a hug does wonders.
This also includes a surprise hug from behind.
#2 Ditch everything and start date-talking
Remember the good old days, when you were always hungry for the tiniest piece of information about each other’s life? You knew everything and would have scored 100 in a couple quiz! But do you think in all these years you have gathered everything you need to know about your partner? Occupy the favourite corner of your house and simply talk (not about groceries, bills or work deadlines).
#3 Who said eating together is not fun?
You simply have to enter into your silly teen avatars!
#4 Once you get tired of talking, find that lap!
No one can ever steal the warmth from this act. Sleeping on your partner’s lap while he or she strokes your hair? Direct entry into another zone of bliss.
#5 Give that surprise call just to say “I love you and I miss you”.
Yes, it will be out of the blue. It will also do the magic.
#6 Become the fools again. Just turn the music on and dance!
Even the most awkward person and worst dancer in the world will never say no to the sound of music. This is your chance to scream and have all that laughter for free!
#7 Appreciate the presence of your partner in life and show them in small gestures like these.
#8 A kiss on the forehead is so much sexier and meaningful.
#9 Be it summer or winter, cuddle always!
#10 Be children and do all sorts crazy stuff together!
Piggyback ride, post weird selfies together, play indoor games, read comic books. Pick your own crazy!
And don’t thank me. Thank Puuung, a South Korean illustrator, who has put together the little pieces of her life in these heart-warming illustrations to show how love is an everyday affair. For more daily doses of love, you can follow her on the links given below.
