Lend a bit of love to the ordinary

Romance is not complicated or difficult or even expensive. 

It simply requires intention and attention, which most people are too busy, too lazy or too afraid to give. 

Even if we are not fundamentally lovey dovey touchy feely people, just about anything we do that goes beyond the bare minimum counts as being romantic. 

Whether we’re with a date, a partner, a customer, an employee or a stranger, anytime we lend a bit of love to the ordinary, anytime we layer meaning on top of the mundane, anytime we do anything that makes the other person think to themselves, holy smokes, did they do that just for me, then romance is certainly in the air. 

In literature and music, for example, romance was first categorized as art that emphasized imagination, emotion, introspection and celebrated the freedom of the spirit. 

Those are perfectly helpful guidelines for anyone who isn’t sure where to start. 

Reminds me of the advice my mentor once gave to me about making presentations:

Don’t read your slides, romance them. Unite your screen, your audience and your words together in one big love triangle. 

Remember, being with boring people can feel worse than being alone. 

Turn the lights down low, and invite people come see these gifts you have made for them. 


What could you say to bring some love and warmth into this experience?
