I recently surprised my wife with a day out in the county we live in, which is in the south west of England called Cornwall. I thought long and hard about the types of thing she would like to do and planned an itinerary for the day, to try and give her the most fun day possible.
I think it is important when you are in a relationship to stop and do things like this from time to time. There are many tasks and activities in day-to-day life that can take up your time and take your focus away from your relationship and your loved one. So every chance we get we should make time for our loved ones and put them first. There is nothing like making someone feel loved and feeling loved by your partner.
I think one of the best investments you can make in life is in to your family and I for one am going to try and invest as much as I can in them. The more you invest your time, energy and money in to other things the stronger they will become and the weaker your family will be. I think when you are doing things in life you should always keep your family in mind. You might not always have the same job, the same friends, the same house and the same amount of money but if you invest in your family you will always have a strong unit to fall back on for love and support.
In life sadly there are too many people who never put anyone else first. I think it is important if we are to be a caring and loving society to have more people who are willing and able to put others first. We need more selfless acts carried out in this world, where people do nice things without wanting anything in return.
By having a day away with my wife doing things we wouldn’t normally do, we created memories and instead of it just being a run of the mill day we will always look back on it with fondness.
I am blessed to live in such a nice, picturesque county but the trap I fall in to like many others is – not taking advantage of it. We are one of the top holiday destinations in the UK for tourists so I think we should get the best of it too. Going on holiday or having a break doesn’t have to be about getting aboard a plane or heading for some exotic location. To me a holiday is just time away from the home to enjoy, relax and recharge.
So lets try and make as many days in our lives as special as we can.
