I've been thinking about this concept a lot. When you fall in love with someone its exciting and new. The world exists around this person. They consume your thoughts. You are constantly thinking how you can get to spend more time with them. Then as the newness wears off and life happens you begin to get settled. The IN love part doesn't seem so strong but you definitely love this person! Then as life gets even more crazier and we forget to put our spouse first sometimes even that Love feeling is hard to feel.
This is when we need to stop....redirect....and ACT!
Will you feel IN love every single day - all day long - 7 days a week - for 365 days a year? Um, probably not. But is it possible to feel IN love with your spouse on a regular basis? ABSOLUTELY! Is it possible for the love you feel towards your spouse to grow? POSITIVELY! Is it possible to rekindle a fire that has slowly smoldered out? DEFINITELY!
There is nothing like that IN love feeling. We have to make sure we create opportunities in our lives that will nurture this feeling. It isn't going to happen by itself. It won't. Done. Zero. Get the picture. Love takes work and being IN love takes even more work. But the feeling of being IN love is so enchanting and so tantalizing that its WORTH THE WORK PEOPLE!
