You’re feeling pretty lonely and unloved at the moment. Your last relationship didn’t end well, you haven’t heard a peep from that charmer you met for coffee the other day and most of your friends are tired of listening to you complain about your cheating ex. You’re trying to maintain an optimistic attitude, but it isn’t easy.
Here are 5 ways to create those conditions and have a more fulfilling, happy, love life now, courtesy of Huffington Post
1. Be the love you seek.
Being kind and warm to the people you meet every day builds positive energy and allows you to expand your capacity for love. Smile at strangers. Lend a hand where needed.
2. Accept yourself 100 percent.
When you respect, love and trust yourself, you’ll stop looking for an outside source of validation to fix you, fill you, heal your wounds or reflect your love-ability. Intimacy with another happens when we feel safe to be vulnerable, reveal our truest selves, and honestly show up being who we are. It starts with building a healthy, loving, reliable and trustworthy relationship with yourself.
3. Treat yourself well.
Being in a good relationship with another starts with being in a good relationship with yourself. Nourish your body, mind and spirit everyday with healthy food, exercise, positivity, and the enrichment you need to thrive. Get that massage. Meditate. Listen to beautiful music. Do what feels good and is good for you.
4. Treat each date as an adventure and opportunity to experience something new.
Having too rigid expectations or a fixed agenda of who and what you think you want, leaves you unable to enjoy the moment. And you could be missing out on getting to know someone who’s a true gem. By detaching from your preconceived notions and creating a space of openness and curiosity, your heart may pave the way to finding a partner who’s surprisingly perfect for you.
5. Embrace a peaceful, calm energy.
Everything around us is made up of energy. If you are running around frantic and frazzled, your life will be frenzied. If you are calm and peaceful, your life will be calm and peaceful. Calmness is the result of slowing down on the inside and becoming present.
