The 3 keys to passion
It's so easy to fall in love. Remember the excitement, the romance, and the lust? Sure, there were some challenges, but you were so happy. If you're like most long-term couples, the thrill has probably waned since then. Luckily, it's possible to reignite the passion - it just takes intention.

A strong romantic relationship

Extraordinary couples are like everyone else. Except they make their love intentional.

In business, fitness, or even your hobby, you don't passively wait for things to get better. The same is true for your relationship. Don't take your partner for granted. Take action.

  • Thrill: Excitement, attraction, adventure.
  • Sensuality: The entire spectrum from kissing goodnight to holding hands, from making tender love to raw passion.

    How to give an apology

    A good apology takes two people: the giver and the receiver. An apology that heals is based on kindness, generosity, and compassion. 

    The recipient accepts it with grace and, in turn, offers forgiveness. Without forgiveness, it cannot heal.

    The mindful apology in practice

    • Repair: An apology that rebuilds intimacy should have three parts: you need to own the mistake, and then you need to repair the damage. Lastly, you need to vow to improve.
    • Forgive:  If you have been hurt, you may never completely forget, but you can choose to forgive. To decide to forgive means that you don't relive something that belongs to the past.
    • Begin again: Unfinished business will accumulate. Let go of the small and the large wounds, so they don't pile up.

    Love Progression

    As the initial stage of love fades away, a deeper, richer sense of each other should take its place, and couples can find more ways to make things interesting and fun.

    Look With New Eyes

    Staying curious about each other and finding things, memories, places, and activities that are yet to be shared or experienced together is a great way to rekindle the relationship.
    Revisiting your past and finding ways to connect better by looking at the other with 'new' eyes makes us see many things that were overlooked earlier.
