I Can't Believe What She Said to Me on Valentine's Day
“I Love YOU!” That's what she said and I was absolutely floored!
Now I know it was the flood of Dopamine released from my brain that made it feel so fantastic. We all could use some of that!
Valentine’s Day is Here Again to remind us that we should take a time out and let our special someone know how we feel about them. Life gets so busy and sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses….Valentine’s Day gives us an opportunity to do just that. I say, Why Not?
Nature's Natural High ~ The Neuro-Science of Love!
When we fall in love special energy is released from our brain, which makes us feel good and as long as our relationship is healthy and vibrant, we will continue to experience these “feel good” chemicals even when just thinking about our partner.
“What neuroscience tells us about being in love?
Thinking about one's beloved—particularly in new relationships—triggers activity in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the brain, which releases a flood of the neurotransmitter dopamine (the so-called "pleasure chemical") into the brain's reward (or pleasure) centers—the caudate nucleus and nucleus accumbens.” Psychology Today
Embracing Valentine's Day ~ So, I say again….”Why Not” indulge in a little FREE dopamine by being in love! Rekindling the flames can be just as fun as the first time. Romance is Alive and Well, if you want it to be. Since we now know the benefits of love, it’s an easy way to create a natural high for both of you….it’s worth the time to plan a romantic event or get-a-way and worth every moment.
Have You Ever Heard the saying, “Opposites Attract?”
It seems true doesn’t it?
Sometimes we feel attracted to someone because of their unique differences, qualities we don’t see in ourselves, but wish we had. This can make things very interesting at first, but sometimes these differences in our personality or the way we do things, can get under our skin.
We all want to feel loved and appreciated, sometimes relationships are difficult to navigate.
Even when you truly love someone, personality issues can arise and we may find ourselves feeling annoyed or even resentful. Feeling happy, or feeling annoyed is all about perspective and focus. Try focusing on all the things you love about your partner and stop yourself from thinking about the things that bug you. A great way to start this is to write down 5 things every day that you’re grateful for about your partner. As your focus changes, so will your feelings. Whatever you focus on, think about, will grow and expand! Choose the good, positive thoughts and you’ll find yourself changing how you feel to something better.
The Ego Gets in the Way!
Keep this in mind.....if you're feeling annoyed by someone, or situations, what it really means is your EGO or personality self is out of balance....start by indulging in some stress relief and self-care. Loving yourself first is the best way to love someone else.
Take a few deep breaths, put your hand on your heart and say to yourself, with feeling: "I Love You." Repeat it until you feel truth in those words. Allow any emotions to rise to the surface and just be, without any judgment. Breathe.
Remember: You are a Beautiful Spiritual Being having a human experience just like everyone else.....remember that!
