Hey mama! Are you feeling a little (or a lot) of pressure about Valentine's Day this year?
Maybe this is your first Valentine's Day post baby, or perhaps the holiday has become so routine that you'd rather ignore it — but because the passion in your marriage has been missing lately, you're secretly planning to use it as an excuse to spice things up in the bedroom.
Remember your single girl days, when you worried about whether or not you would have a date for Valentine's Day? Now that worry is replaced with pressure to do ‘enough' for your hubby and pressure to make plans that fit a commercialized ideal of ‘romance.'
This Valentine's Day, I challenge you to forget the ‘Hallmark Holiday' pressure you might be feeling — the dinner and diamonds and lingerie — and allow yourself to experience genuine passion with your partner.
Why not allow it be a truly special day? Not because the advertisements tell you to, but because it is so special.
Embrace the day.
Celebrate your heart's desires.
Fall back in lust with your lover again.
Hire a sitter. Enjoy your holiday together! And accept this challenge to reconnect and recommit to the spark that brought you and your partner together in the first place.
