For what felt like hours, I followed a long series of switchbacks. The trail traveled across the mountain, turned 180 degrees and traversed back, each switchback gaining a few feet of altitude. It seemed like I just went back-and-forth without upward progress.
I continued this monotonous, back-and-forth trail, wondering if I was making progress towards Grayback peak. The trail didn’t change and the peak still seemed far away.
Learning to become more romantic may seem like this trek.
You read this romantic blog and want to romance your sweetheart more often. Maybe you review the romantic suggestions and wonder why you can’t come up with these ideas. It’s what you want. It’s your goal.
As you continue, you ask yourself:
- Will it ever become easy?
- When will conjuring romantic idea come naturally?
- Will I ever become the romantic my sweetheart desires?
Join me for a moment back on the mountain trail.
As I made the next 180 degree turn I happened to glance downward. Wow! I was at least 1,500 feet above the trailhead. During the past hour, the monotonous back-and-forth trail had actually led me quite a ways towards the peak.
Maybe it’s time you took a look backwards. Consider where you are vs. where you were when you joined the Romance Alive™ community via these blogs. Even if you’ve only been with us a month or so, take a moment to think back to how you used to approach romancing your sweetheart.
- Are you more aware of ways to romance your sweetheart?
- Have you become more focused on how your sweetheart prefers to be romanced?
It can be encouraging to take a look back from time-to-time and celebrate the progress you’ve made.
And if you don’t think you’ve made any progress, consider this. You’re spending time each week reading this blog and contemplating how you might romance your sweetheart. That’s progress. Celebrate! Robert
