3-Step Relationship Makeovers

Are you in a relationship rut? This is your chance to renew the romance in your life, but it's up to you! Love is like a precious flower that grows best in a garden where the soil is fertile and the weeds are pulled. Weeds grow naturally in our relationships as mistakes, confusion and miscommunication, and must be pulled or cleared up as soon as possible. Lies, deception and hidden agendas are the worst kinds of weeds, for sooner or later they strangle relationships and destroy trust.

To start your relationship makeover, write down three weeds that you have allowed to grow. You can start with something small or jump right in with the biggest weed of all, taking our partner or their love for granted, which is a surefire way to have love fade away.

Step two in your relationship makeover is making a list of things that you can do to let your partner know what he means to you. Does he have a soft spot for something? Is there something that you could do to remind him of the most romantic part of your courtship? Just saying "I love you" is not enough. Love needs to be expressed in hundreds of small ways.

Step three is easy. Take some action today! Without deeds of love, words lose their meaning. When we do this, our relationships cannot help but grow, in fact, our relationships are made over, fresh and new day by day. As we practice the laws of love, the weeds in our relationships disappear all by themselves.
