Let me ask you a question:
Do you have a “shopping list” for your relationship?
A few days ago, I was walking on the Mariahilfer Strasse, which is Vienna’s biggest and longest shopping street.
There are literally hundreds and hundreds of stores here. It’s absurd. 🙂
Has this ever happened to you, that you’re going shopping and you get distracted by all the things that are around? All the stores, all the products, all the promotions, all the sales?
Every time I go there, I forget what I actually wanted to buy, and then I end of purchasing all kinds of things.
And when I get back home and I look at all the packages and stuff that I bought, I realize that I forgot the one thing that I actually went shopping for.
To avoid those situations, what do you do? Usually, we write a shopping list of things that we want to buy, right?
A list of things, so that we don’t forget what we actually came here for. A list of things that we want.
Now, here’s the real question:
Why don’t we do this in our relationships?
Why do we let our relationships just happen, instead of really thinking about what it is that we want.
Why do we get distracted everyday with life?
Because it’s easy to get lost, if we are not consciously thinking about what it is that we actually want.
Because the more we think about it, the more we verbalize it, the more we make it specific, the greater the chances are that we actually get the things that we want. The greater the chance that we make it happen, that we manifest the things we want in our life.
We create a vision a vision for our relationship. A relationship vision is like a shopping list for the life with our partner.
I invite you to try this out now – write down a list of things that you want to experience in your relationship. Write down a list of emotions you want to feel on a regular basis. Write down a list of locations that you want to go to with your partner. Write down everything, but make it specific.
And then read it every day and see where it takes you.
Just just try it out – it doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cost you anything, other than a few minutes every day.
Create your relationship vision.
