12 Tips for a Happy Relationship 🎉

Just a few months ago, my husband Sean and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary as a married couple.

With three years under the belt, Sean has taught me the most powerful lessons about human love and interaction and the type of person I want to be.

We are by no means perfect and we both are still learning all the time.

But here's what I've learned so far:⁣

💜 Being "right" is bullshit. Do you want to be happy or do you want to be right?⁣

💜 Drop your ego at the door. The more you puff out your chest, the further others drift.

💜 Say exactly what you feel. All. The. Time. Even when it's vulnerable. ESPECIALLY when it's vulnerable. Life's too short to hold back..

💜 Your partner is not your mind reader. Everything you wish to receive? Ask for it and make it known.

💜 The person who wins an argument is the person who says "I'm sorry" first⁣.

💜 Wanna make a power play in an argument? Make the other person feel validated, heard, and safe. That's your biggest move. ⁣

💜 Love is work, but it's not hard. Love doesn't hurt either⁣.

💜 You really CAN marry your best friend. And should. ⁣

💜 Keeping score is for the insecure. Don't invest time collecting ammo against your partner.

💜 Talk about everything. Obsessively. Over communicate. Then talk about it again. Communication is key for Sean and I and we wouldn't be here without it⁣.

💜 Never stop flirting. Never stop saying, "I like you" 😚.
Never stop saying, "You're so beautiful/handsome today."
Never stop googly-eyeing.
Never stop saying, "I appreciate you".
Never stop saying, "I want you."
You want the spark to last forever? Well, what are you doing about that? ⁣

💜 Remember all the cute shit you did while dating? Re-create it⁣ and make them feel special.

And that’s just to name a few of the lessons I’ve learned.

I’m still cheers-ing to DECADES of beautiful lessons and life to come with Sean, and I hope that this serves as a great reminder for you to show your partner love, acceptance, kindness, and support each and every day
