Enchantment as Love – by Lori Peters

Enchantment seems to mean several things, but I think of love. I guess that’s because I am getting married, for the first time, as an older person. I feel the relationship is magical and I’m spell-bound because this person whom I’m marrying is like no one I have ever met. Besides my Father, he is the only person with whom I trust my life. I told him that and he had to walk away because it had such a profound affect on him. I call him salt of the earth; I have never met anyone like this before. I  am truly mesmerized and somewhat shocked with the way he treats me.

We discuss the honeymoon stage and our biggest fear is that we don’t always show affection for each other and that things become mundane. I have lived on this planet long enough to know that relationships do and must change. It’s a good thing. However, I am also aware that we need to keep on top of affection, true caring, boredom, and other issues. We talk about “bringing it” all the time. The magical question is…can we? That’s what we’re about to find out.

I think the enchantment of love and the magic in it is finding your own way, as a couple, to make it feel great as things change. Lots of relationship experts discuss date nights, open communication, finding the best in each other and it’s all true. For goodness sake, I do public speaking on happiness and well-being; I should be able to figure it out! So here goes- I want to find that magical place where I do my best to find the good in him even when I get annoyed because we are fairly different. Let’s keep those compliments coming and thanks you’s going, along with making time to be alone with affection at the forefront.

Yes, I ‘m still enchanted with love. I still think if you know what it takes and are very conscious and aware, it can work for a very long time. Let’s face it, it does for some couples; therefore, it’s possible. So, I send all good vibs to those couples making it work and to those who hope to have it work very soon. Here’s to the mystery of romance and love with all of its delights showering upon you and your current or future loved one.

    That is so exciting. I cannot help but think of that old song, “Some Enchanted Evening.” It is wonderful you are aware that good and happy relationships take work. I am happy for you.
