With so many talking about Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share some things that are important to me not only on a day like this but every day with the one I love. Let’s take a moment together to discuss, “What matters to me this Valentine’s Day with the one I love.”
I know you may be thinking, it is important to make sure you acknowledge the one you love on Valentine’s Day and yes, I would agree. However, I believe it’s important to let the one you love know how you feel every day. I believe it’s necessary to maintain a healthy relationship.
I think it is so important to not make it about things but rather your time… your moments cherished together. Consider all the precious things you really love and appreciate about one another. When you do so, you will look back over your experiences together and treasure them more over what was given.
I understand some like to receive gifts and I am not saying this is a bad thing. Rather, I am saying to consider the entirety of it all over just running out and getting chocolates and flowers. Believe me, I am one who loves to receive both. However, it is when we consider the moments that we have been given everyday with the one we love that we will be so inclined to cherish them more.
Let’s be honest here, it takes work to maintain a loving healthy relationship. It does not just happen. You both must work at making sure you pay attention to the things each loves, dislikes, and perhaps even their needs. For example, how can chocolate help with the need to have a really serious discussion? The point is there is a time and place for everything.
So what matters to me in my relationship with the one I love? Believe me I can include so many things. But for this blog, I would like to include my top three most important. First and most importantly is maintaining respect with each other. Secondly, open and honest communication in every circumstance. Lastly, paying attention to each other’s needs. My husband and I have come to a place where we know, we cannot meet each other’s needs at all times because we both obviously are not perfect. But paying attention to each other’s needs allows us to recognize when we might need some space to reflect on what we are going through. It also gives us a better understanding that we should not assume why the other may be acting or talking a certain way.
In every relationship, we must decide not to put any expectation on the other. When we do this, we are unfortunately at a place where we most likely will fail each other. So what will we do this Valentine’s Day? My love and I will make sure we are both in agreement with our likes and desires. We will also make sure we are not putting any unnecessary pressure on what each of us has to do that may be acceptable.
For those of you in a relationship, let me know what you are doing this Valentine’s Day. Have you both discussed it? Do you prefer to be surprised? Do you take moments to appreciate one another everyday like me and not only for this special V Day? This Valentine’s Day, I will cherish the moments together with my love. I sincerely appreciate that you take moments with me and share your stories.

Love this post!!! It’s so important to nourish our relationships on a daily basis.
Yes it really does take a conscious awareness to one in working on maintaining a healthy relationship. I really appreciate you taking a moment to read and share your comments. 🤗
Good points for sure. It is important to put in the work to grow a healthy relationship, instead of acknowledging the one you love on when celebrating a particular day. The person matters more than the day itself.
Absolutely right. 🤗That’s why I felt like I had to write about this. We should be cherishing the moments we have together daily and not only on “V” day. Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your comments. ❤️
This is beautiful! This year my husband and I are doing something we’ve never done on Valentine’s Day: Going golfing! We both love it and it will be fun to spend the day doing something active that we both enjoy.
Love this. Have a lot of fun together! ❤️ Thank you so much for sharing your comments.
Beautiful post! It’s a great reminder for those who may have been struggling with their relationship during the pandemic <3
Yes, unfortunately there are many who have suffered during the pandemic. It’s important to recognize what each one needs to work on to maintain a healthy relationship. Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your comments. 🤗
Love these reminders. All relationships need to be nurtured and require constant communication between both partners. Thanks for sharing this 🙂
Yes, open and complete honesty matters so much in every relationship. Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your comments. 🤗
How can chocs e courage serious discussion” haha. Loved that line. I think communication is one of the biggest problems and one that requires most attention. Because it makes or breaks a relationship. Second or equally importent is fulfilling each other’s needs, if you’re not attentive, then there is no connection left. Thanks for the thoughts. Xx

Great post and I totally agree with you!!

Love this post.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your comments. 🤗
My partner and I aren’t doing anything for Valentine’s Day. However, I have sorted out a three month subscription to flowers by post, starting on Valentine’s Day, because one of my partner’s wants for Christmas was a new vase, which I got them. So it seemed like a good way to connect the two occasions even though we won’t be together for Valentine’s Day
We take moments every day. Although I see Valentine’s as more of a Hallmark holiday, we don’t ignore it. We just use it as one more reason to show our love. We had a nice dinner at home Sunday to celebrate. Going out for Valentine’s Day is low on my wish list!
I agreed with you that love is something that should be celebrated every day and not just one day.
I believe that every type of relationship is going through crises at our days. It is a bit normal if you consider how many problems we all have and how often we tend to focus only on our issues and forget that another person might also be going through something. Communication and understanding I thing are really important to build a healthy relationship.
Yesss communication is so important in every relationship. Being sensitive to each other’s needs is vital definitely. Thank you so much reading and for sharing your comments. 🤗
I love this post. Such a god reminder of what is important.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your thoughts. 🤗
totally agree! relationships are what’s important in this life. love your intentional point of view around v-day.
This is such a real and honest post thank you – you’re right relationships don’t just happen. There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes to care for your partner and show them love and appreciation. Our valentine’s day is based on spending time together, we don’t place too much stress on the day! I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day!
this is such a great post hun! a healthy and successful relationship always takes work!

I love how valentines day reminds us to take time with the people we love.
Yes, it’s important we make time for the people we love, not only on Valentine’s Day but every day… as often as possible. 🤗. Thank you for taking a moment to read and share your comments.
This is such a wonderful post & I completely agree! It’s so important to have trust & communication not just on Valentine’s Day, but every day.
Yes, trust and communication are important keys in every relationship. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your comments. 🤗
Awe love this 🥰
Wow, great post! Valentine’s is a special day for those in love and I’m happy to have reas this just before 14th!
Have a great Valentine’s Day. Thank you for taking moments with me and sharing your thoughts.
Thank you for this! Agreed, Valentine’s can be a reminder to do something extra special with loved ones but when in a relationship it’s important to talk openly about how we feel regularly. I like celebrating Valentine’s Day with little attentions, extra kind note, special supper, using the time to plan activities for the future.
Yes, absolutely Charlie-Elizabeth. Feeling especially loved on special occasions like Valentine’s makes the day extra special. It is vital that we work at making those we love and care about feel special everyday too. Thank you so much for taking moments with me and sharing your thoughts.
I understand what you’re saying but I think it’s okay to take a day to celebrate and focus on a particular person or aspect of life and make that day extra special for them. Especially if you’re a parent, life can be hectic, taking a day to celebrate slows down the fast-pace lifestyle that we live here in the U.S.
Hey Natalie I love this post and completely agree about nourishing our relationships with trust, respect and open communication. That is true for all our relationships not just romantic ones so thanks for encouraging us to focus on what’s most important!

I totally agree with you that these things are important. Yes, keeping a relationship thriving doesn’t happen on it’s own. We have to make an effort to show those we love them daily.
Thank you Crystal for taking moments to read and share your comments. I believe it takes constant effort to demonstrate that we sincerely love and care about those we are in relationship with.
Wonderful, I totally agree with you. Yes, it take a lot of effort to make our relationship better. Thank you for sharing this article with us.
Thank you Janice for taking moments with me to read and share your comments. To maintain a healthy relationship will definitely require effort from each one in the relationship.
Love this. Such a wonderful reflection ❤️
I appreciate you reading and sharing your thoughts.
