THE LOVE BOX
It’s our responsibility to show our loved ones the care we truly have for them. I wish the love box helps.
The people we love the most often get our least time and attention. We forget to call our mothers and forget to send flowers to our wives. In the daily busyness we can often be more sensitive to the feelings of our bosses than we are to the feelings of the people we are the closest to. So how can we change this.
I am trying a deliberate and fun experiment with my wife. We have created a small box in our bedroom called the Love Box.
What we do in this is write up all the things I want her to do for me or with me and she does the same. Then we keep adding it to each box.
On the weekend, one of us will pull out one slip and we will do what it says. So why do I think this will work better than whatever I do today
- The box lies in our bedroom and constantly reminds us that we have a solemn duty to share our love, understand each other’s needs better and help make them happen.
- It’s fun to write one’s wishes and wish that what if they could come true one day.
- It’s even more fun to pull out a slip and make something happen.
- Lastly many times we are not confident that our deepest wishes are worthy of being fulfilled. Writing them down makes them more plausible and takes away the fear of expressing it verbally.
So what are some of the things I have put down. Some are fun and naughty like making out in public and others are about places I always wanted to go but never did, like France. I am keen to find out what my partner wants and I wish I can make it happen.
If the idea works, I want to do it for my mum, my dad, my sister and all the people I love. Life is short. It’s our responsibility to show our loved ones the care we truly have for them.
I wish the love box helps.
