One of the characteristics that sets the blue ribbon relationships apart from the rest of the pack is the tendency for both partners to live in a state of appreciation. They show appreciation for all the ways that they enhance each other’s lives.
People in positive relationships have an attitude of gratitude.
It prompts them to continually seek out ways to make each other’s lives easier, more pleasurable, more enriched, and more fun. They make it a point to show acts of assistance and support, spontaneously offering words of acknowledgment, kindness, and affection, small gestures and physical touch that say, “I love you.” They show up, are present, notice the tiniest things, and are generous of spirit in a variety of ways.
