Hi and welcome!
Many of us remember the famous Sex and The City episode when Burger (Carrie's writer boyfriend) breaks up with her on a Post-it Note. It says ‘I’m Sorry, I Can’t, Don’t Hate Me’….”
And then it dawned upon me instead of ‘breaking up’ we could be ‘making up’ on a Post-it Note. An interesting turnaround from a negative concept into a positive don’t you think?
Picture how nice it would feel to receive a message of love or gratitude from your significant other. So why not surprise them and put a Post-it Note Maybe on the bathroom mirror or by the bedside with a nice message. Here are some ideas…
Post-it Note your feelings and thoughts!
- I love you
- The day we married was one of the happiest days of my life
- When I look at you I see your inner beauty shine
- You make me laugh which is one of the many things I love about you
- I love the way you make me feel and our time together
- You’re the best thing that ever happened to me
- I love the family and life we have created together
- I’m so grateful to have you in my life
- I love the life we’ve built together and I love you
You can write anything positive you like!! It takes less than two minutes to write on a Post-it Note and put it where they will see it.
So what does the ‘Big 3’ Stress Solutions Puzzle look like when it comes to Don’t Break Up on a Post-it Note – Make Up with Love Notes!?
I strongly believe complacency breeds contempt and we can take our relationships with people for granted. It’s so easy for us to get into a rut and become stale, all of which can heighten our emotional stress.
This exercise might seem insignificant but when someone shows us we are loved it can reduce emotional stress.
Sometimes it can be the smallest of things which can mean so much. We don’t need to spend money on expensive gifts. Actions speak louder than words and letting our partner know how we feel about them is a critical part of a relationship. The notion you’ve thought about them and surprised them with a loving message will speak volumes about your feelings and love towards them.
Remember my motto for positive change is ‘Little Puzzle Pieces Create a Big Picture’… So keeping the open lines of communication going. Reminding your partner of how much you love them keeps a relationship strong.
So go and have some fun with the Post-it Notes….. You never know what they might get back!
Until next time be thoughtful, be mindful, be present. This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
