Spruce up your life #TurnOnRomance

12:54 AM

The year 2014 came to a close and as I sat in my favorite corner with the ever so scintillating fragrance of Airwick in my room, I was taken by the thoughts of how beautiful the year had been for me. The year for me was filled with Romance to the T, like out of a perfect love story.
We all need romance to spruce up our lives.
Here’s one thing you can count on: Everyone is looking for a romantic relationship that sizzles. No one prefers lukewarm leftovers to a fresh, hot gourmet meal.  In any endeavor, you get out what you put in. Small effort yields small results. The truth is, you've got to fan the flames once in a while. While you are expecting gestures from your partner that turns you on, give yourself a reality check on reciprocation. For me a romantic relation is the key that opens the lock of a happy life. 
Read how we Turn on Romance in our life.
1.       Quality Time (a.k.a Long Walks Together). Walking side by side, with no particular destination, is a kind of moving romantic meditation. The easy rhythm of walking settles our thoughts and feelings, and encourages openness.
We take out time to just walk with each other in the cold weather. While he lends me his oversized jersey and his warm hands, we walk and talk.
Every step you take can bring you closer to each other and to the romance you desire. The purpose of dating is not to see how much frenetic activity you can pack into your time together.



2.       Love Letters.  “Language was developed for one endeavor—and that is…Mr. Perry?” “To communicate?” the hapless boy replies. “No!” the teacher responds. “To woo women!” Or to entice a man, for that matter. Want to light a fire under your romance? Put down your electronic gadgets for a while, and get out a real piece of paper and a real pen.
He writes me heartfelt letter and notes. Pieces of paper that breathe with his words
You don’t have to craft a Shakespearean sonnet—just say what’s on your heart. Then put the letter in a nice envelope and give it/keep it for them.



3.       Imaginative Gift Giving. To qualify as “imaginative,” the gift must be unique and meaningful, as if it could only have been properly given to one person. It must help you say, “I truly see you—and I like what I see.” Such a gift requires attentiveness and observation and the effort to get it right. It’s not just a CD; it is a compilation of songs you made yourself. Not just any book; it is the latest by her favorite author. 
He remembers what I said months ago or even yesterday and that little gesture is enough to say “I do”



4.       Homemade meals. Generating romantic heat with food you prepare yourself is becoming a lost art. But there is something subtly seductive about sitting down to a meal made especially with love in mind.
We cook for each other and steal time to have meals together. Be it a breakfast he wakes me up with or lunch that I bring for him while he is busy with his work.
It is a romantic offering of time, effort, and creativity that can kindle the fire of attraction like nothing else.


Romantic heat doesn't  happen by itself—it takes intentionality. Be the one to strike a match, and watch  as the temperature rises in the favorite corners with your favorite fragrance around.
