Take Your Relationship off Autopilot and Reignite the Spark!

relationship spark

When you think about your marriage, is it on autopilot? Do you find that you’re starting to take each other for granted, or it’s just so comfortable that there’s really not a lot of newness or new energy inside of your relationship or your marriage?

This is not uncommon, and if we’re not careful, it’s really easy to fall asleep at the wheel with our most important relationships.

This weekend, Jeff and I are headed to the mountains to enjoy a few days together, and also attend a couple’s retreat where we’ll be sharing with the group some of the things that we do to keep our relationship fresh and exciting, so we’re not falling asleep at the wheel. My relationship with Jeff really is the most important relationship in my life, and I know it impacts so many other areas of my life.

My goal with this post is to wake you up in your relationship, if that’s what you need.

We know that all relationships require effort, and if we're not putting effort into that relationship, it's easy for it to fizzle out. Just like we keep adding wood to a fire, if we want that fire to keep burning.

When we’re in a brand new relationship, it’s exciting, it’s special. There’s a lot of effort that goes into it to get to know each other, to try new things, and then as time goes on we get really comfortable. We get lost in our day-to-day, and it’s really easy to take the people that are most important to us for granted.

We know that all relationships require effort, and if we’re not putting effort into that relationship, it’s easy for it to fizzle out. Just like we keep adding wood to a fire, if we want that fire to keep burning.

When we get into a really big conflict, or resentment, or struggle, it takes a lot more energy to come back from. But if you’re just complacent, this is a good place to be, if you’re willing to put a little bit of effort into the the marriage and into your relationship.

 

 

So as you think about this next week, what could you do to add some spark? Maybe you can invite your partner out to go somewhere you’ve never gone before. Maybe it’s just making a special dinner, or giving them a compliment. Maybe they do something ongoing that you take for granted right now, and you could thank them for their effort. Maybe it’s offering a back rub or a head massage. What could you do to really put some effort into the relationship before it starts to fizzle out?

If you were to make that a practice every day, every week, to ask what can I do today to really show love to my partner, to express appreciation, to try something new? What would that look like this week? And imagine, if you intentionally did that every single week, your marriage and your relationship is going to be burning hot rather than fizzling out.

I know it’s always a nice reminder for me not to take those relationships for granted, and not waiting for the other person to add that spark. What can I do? And as you show up as your best self in your relationship, as you really make that extra effort, know that that’s going to be reciprocated back to you.
