not in my dreams

I must have been thinking about this task a lot during the week because I managed to have a romance in my head, while I was sleeping.

There I was in some romantic European city when I met a tall, dark, handsome man who in a thick foreign accent approached from afar, red rose in hand, ‘dinner – m’amour’? Before I had time to answer out of the blue along came my boyfriend, Sam. Yes, in my dream. And even in my dream I realized how lucky to have a lovely boyfriend like Sam and I said ‘Au Revoir’ to Mr France.

During the week, I tried to do little things to up the ante on the romance front. Not that we are completely short of it (yes, we like holding hands) but there’s no harm in remembering to appreciate each other a little more every now and then.

So Sam had told me that romance to him was moonlit walks (see last week’s post), so I gave him just that. Well, not the moonlit kind but more of a fast walk to the tube on the way to work instead of catching the bus kind. It was nice though, we talked and laughed and I ended up getting to work a little happier than I usually would have.

Can’t get better than that.

This weeks challenge: Do something good for someone else, even though you may not want to. Do a favour, help them find something, give them an item which will help them in some way. Start the flow of positive energy.

How hard is this one going to be? I’m sure I do nice things everyday don’t I?

Just sitting here thinking about it, I can’t remember the last time that I did something really sweet for my boyfriend, friends and family. Ok, I do little things every now and then (does the washing up count?) but recently I’ve been a bit slack and perhaps even started verging towards taking people for granted. Ekk.

I can remember nice things that other people have done for me though – like getting flowers from my lovely boyfriend Sam, receiving an amazing sending off from my friends before my holiday to Australia and lots of amazing shopping advice from my sis Lanny (who has no time to do shopping of her own with two little boys).

But now it’s time for me to do the same for them (and others). Well, that’s the plan for this week – challenge one. How hard have I been listening to what people actually need… let’s wait and see.

It would be so super cool if you wanted to try this with me. Especially this one – it’s so nice and you might be surprised at how awesome it will make you feel – making other people happy. And guess what you’ll be rewarded next week (check out next week’s challenge below). Yippee looking forward to that one. I might go shopping for that now just to get a head start.
