A Week in Reflection – The Meaning of an Anniversary

Earlier this week, I celebrated a lovely anniversary with my dear partner. I’ve always adored anniversaries, but this year seemed a bit different for me. For this year’s anniversary, I really felt a deep appreciation for my partner and our relationship. I’ve spent the entire week in gratitude, which consisted of meditation on love and a reflection of our past year/entire relationship. This particular reflection has allowed me to take my love for my partner to a deeper level.

“An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.”

Recently, my therapist mentioned an important point about anniversaries – anniversaries are usually about celebrating, but also it is a time of reflection of the journey of the past year, along with the good times, bad times, moments of difficulties, and teamwork. Overall, relationships take a lot of work, dedication, and unconditional love. Over the past year, I’ve learned that it isn’t all about myself, but it is about my partner as well. A relationship is successful when each person gives 100% and not 50/50. I’ve learned the importance of forgiveness and unconditional love, along with seeing my faults and learning from them to become a better person and partner.

When we hold ourselves accountable in the relationship, we inspire our partners to be accountable as well. Also, our actions encourage our partners to be their very best, which is always beautiful to witness. Moreover, it is beautiful to learn from my partner as well. He has inspired me to always be myself and comfortable within my skin, and comfortable with all of my decisions. He is my number one fan in all that I do, and I appreciate his unconditional love and support.

This blog post has seriously made me appreciate this past year, and I am looking forward to more anniversaries to come. I look forward to learning and growing together as a delightful duo.

Thank you so much for reading my post. I hope I have inspired you to reflect on your own relationships as well.

Much gratitude and love,

Jeannie
