The Honeymoon

The honeymoon phase, a commonly used term to identify the beginning of a relationship, where all is good and fun. Everyone has one. Now here's the kicker.. how long does it last? I understand relationships can sometimes get estrange, but at what point do you have to pack up the bags and leave the honeymoon forever? People are always so quick to judge saying "you're not the same person you were when we first started dating" well I'd hope not, we started dating 3 years ago. I hope I have changed a little in that time. What I don't understand is why change has to cancel out the honeymoon. Why can't change just increase the honeymoon phase. People grow, some more than others, but that doesn't mean you outgrow the love. I believe the love grows with you. If you can't still fall head over heels for the love of your life, then what exactly was holding you to them in the first place? Whether it's been 3 years or 30, the love you felt in the beginning should grow over time, not shrink. There is no expiration date on the honeymoon phase, you shouldn't stop trying to win over your significant other just because you have them. Everyday should be a new day to show how much you love and appreciate them. I'm not saying grand gestures or fancy gifts, but a simple "I love you" or "I'm proud of you" or even "thank you for being my forever and always" goes a long way in the eyes of your lover. I wish people would stop expecting the honeymoon phase to end as soon as things get bumpy. Love has good days and bad, but that's no reason to give up on something so precious as a honeymoon phase. Someone great once told me "it's you and your partner against the world, not you and your partner against each other."

Cherish your loved one, try to remember the reason you got together in the first place, and those honeymoon vibes will come rushing back in no time. 😍
