Because we cherish our relationship and we don’t want to lose it again, we introduced a few simple guidelines to each other. One of them is our monthly surprise dates. At least once a month, he prepares a perfect date for me and once a month it is my turn to prepare him a treat. We love every moment we spend together even when we are together 24/7.
So why not show some interest in each other. We are aware that we don’t know what the future holds, but we want to have some good stories to share when we are old.
Well, this is also a good test of how good we know each other. To prepare a perfect day for your beloved person can be sometimes a hard task. Especially when you are in a place, where you don’t feel very well. As an example, I can point out our romantic getaway in Kuala Lumpur. I didn’t enjoy that city at all, but Ian somehow showed me differently. Every place has its own charm, we only need someone to show us.
Everybody has time to spend. It’s up to us, however, how we use it and live through the moments. Again and again, we forget about ourselves due to everyday commitments which fill our thoughts. Only when an extremely stressful situation strikes us we really understand that our body isn’t eternal and only then we actually begin to appreciate the time that is available to us.
We both see eye to eye with Rita Mae Brown who said: “I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.”
