Romancing and Moving

One year earlier I’d been “made redundant”. Now my severance was running out and still no job. I needed to cut expenses.

A generous opportunity was presented: rent my home out and become a tenant, at a below-market rate.

Mercy! That involved moving, packing up my life into boxes.

  • How do I pack my ten-year collection of stuff accumulated over a lifetime?
  • Do I keep my high school t-shirt (it didn’t fit)? How about the boutonniere from my first prom?
  • What do I pack first? I’ll need to keep living during the process.

The enormity of the undertaking was daunting. Where do I begin stuffing all my essentials and treasures into boxes I can carry? Awwwww.

I’ll think about it tomorrow.

Three weeks later I decided to pack just one box with books. I have lots of books. Not too bad or stressful. Maybe another.

A couple days later, there was a row of boxes: four tall, ten long. And it continued growing.

Romancing your sweetheart can seem intimidating, overwhelming and scary. So much to consider.

  • How do I figure out the best way to romance?
  • How do I plan a Romantic Interlude?
  • Should we go out or stay in?

We let fear of the perceived size of the task immobilize our efforts.

Can you identify?

As a remedy, pack a box today. Take a single step to romance your sweetheart.

  • Reread previous blog until you find one you like. OR
  • Remind yourself of things you’ve done with your sweetheart that she/he enjoyed and make notes. OR
  • Search romantic ideas on the internet and capture two you like.

Take a single action today, then another tomorrow. Continue achieving one thing a day until you’ve had a Romantic Interlude. Continue to another Interlude. And another.

Keep on romancing your sweetheart for a lifetime – one action at a time.
