A lovely Saturday adventure in Colorado with my love. Hiking in the Garden of the Gods, adventuring at the Royal Gorge Bridge, taking the scenic route back through the mountains, seeing Beauty and the Beast, and then a late night dinner with good beer. We may only get to go on a date once every 3 months or so... but when we do we do it right. :) Oh, and we may have debated running away and having a small ranch in Colorado. #truelove#tourlife#touringsm#canttakethemountainsoutofthegirl

They had journals before they met... because they couldn't open up to anyone.... but when they met they didn't need to write things down as they could trust each other and tell each other everything ❤️ but when Elena "died" Stefan started writing again.... and when Stefan died Elena started writing again... because their was no one else they could trust and tell everything to #truelove
Successful relationships involve the daily practice of loving your partner and choosing to be loved in return by them. Many people think love is a "feeling". They become perplexed - depressed even - when the euphoric feelings of falling in love begin to wane. They wake up some days wondering if they've made a mistake. Did they choose the "right" partner with whom to make sacred vows of commitment?
Obviously, we are not talking about cases in which abuse or infidelity is present. But the truth is, even long-term romantic relationships with a "soul mate" have days, weeks even, during which you don't have ecstatic feelings of love towards your partner. Some days, in fact, you may not like them very much, just out of resentment from being locked in with them for the daily grind. But it is precisely at those times when you must CHOOSE to be loving. CHOOSE to be kind. CHOOSE to be loyal. Love is a behavior. Love is a commitment. Love is a choice. Love is a decision. Love is WORK.
Many of us exit relationships we're bored with, seeking out the next fix of feelings fueled by adrenaline, dopamine and oxytocin. But that *high* only lasts 6-18 months. Therefore, if you follow feelings, you'll be on that perpetual cycle every couple of years when the object of your affection changes from the god in your mind to the regular human being they are. The real issue, then, is that we shouldn't be looking for "happily-ever-after" but "happily-even-after." We should be taking ACTIONS that enable feelings to follow. Quality time without the smart devices. Date night. Foot rubs. Candlelight baths. Kind words that edify. Appreciation expressed for things done. All of these, done unselfishly, can go a long way to get those feelings revving. This is real foreplay. Start tonight.
