It doesn’t get more simple than this.
Everyone loves to hear this and we need to say it more often.
So say it. Email it. Text it. Write it out in a letter. Hire a skywriter if you can afford it.
I know we just got done with Valentines day and I hope you took the time to tell your loved ones that you do in fact love them in addition to the flowers, chocolates and romantic dates. I had big plans to take my wife out to a fun date night, but instead my body decided to get sick and we stayed home recovering. The good news is that when you buy flowers and chocolates after February 14th they are significantly discounted .
But as my Valentines day plans were thwarted, it should not be the only day we say and show our love toward those significant in our lives. So do it again today. Do it all week. Pick out one person that is special to you each day and write them a little note to let them know what they mean to you and that you are thinking about them. Write a sticky note and put it on their computer. Put it on Facebook for all to see. Share something special with them in your own special way that is meaningful to you both. Just take the time to do it.
My friend recently started a mass texting thread with myself and 9 other friends just saying he loved us. It turned into a wonderful conversation of love and mutual admiration between the best group of friends ever.
So tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell your spouse.
If you are looking for inspiration, here’s a quick note I wrote to my beautiful wife. Feel free to steal it.
You are amazing and I love you very much. You are the most wonderful thing to ever happen to me. If anyone ever asks me the secret to being happily married for as long as we have, I tell them it’s simple. Marry someone who is smarter than you…and being gorgeous doesn’t hurt either. You are so smart and so beautiful and I am the luckiest guy in the world to be near you. I look forward to our future with a giant smile on my face knowing that I’ll be with you. I love you.
Nothing will make you swell up with a great feeling like hearing that you are loved from a loved one. Give that feeling to others this week and I bet you will feel a little something from doing it as well.
