If you have ever been in a long term relationship I am certain you can reflect on the earlier years and I bet you remember the special moments you shared with your man.
Take 5-10 minutes now to reflect on one of your favorite memories from the earlier years. By now you may be feeling the Butterflies you use to experience at the site of his phone calls, or when he gave you flowers, or even the first holiday you spent together.
Feeling Butterflies is hands down one of the most amazing experience and I don’t think anyone would choose for them to ever end. The reality is Butterflies do not last forever. It’s a true blessing to have someone to take the life journey with but most can agree relationship are not easy. Let’s face it, as individuals we work through adversity and relationship are not exempt (couples experience adversity too). When there are obstacles to overcomer come as a team; the journey can leave wounds. These wounds can impact one or both partner and they take time to heal. The biggest challenge is wounds can cause us to loose our Butterflies.
The great thing is we can access our Butterflies at anytime we choose by tapping into our memories. In fact, you’re going to need to remember the good times fifteen years down the road in your relationship and your arguing about family trips, finances, and shared responsibilities.
Butterflies remind you of why you began and have continued your journey together. They give you hope during cooler seasons in your relationship. They are reminder of how bless you are to have someone by you side that love and appreciate you for who you are. They remind us to live it up in the things are going well. Most important; they remind to be grateful to have some to take the journey with and someone to love throughout all seasons.
