"I appreciate when you..." by Harville Hendrix & Helen LaKelly Hunt, May 2011
Our lives are but an accumulation of moments. The way we live tomorrow, next week, and next year will be the product of what we are doing right now. If we are critical and angry toward our partner today or too busy to share a connecting moment, we are spending the currency of our lives unwisely.
Our relationships have the power to transform our lives. This transformation occurs not with the wave of a magic wand, but through the daily accumulation of small acts building to a critical mass that we end up labeling a "life" or a "relationship."
In a conscious relationship we intentionally design actions that move us closer to our goals. Each day matters, since the whole can never be greater than the sum of its parts. Appreciation expressed clearly today, or the time spent in idle chatter, is giving weight and definition to your life.
Remember to share an appreciation to your partner today and every day.
