As I sat at a coffee shop, I could see a couple across the plaza. The young woman went into a clothing store and left her partner sitting on an outside bench. He kept watching as she brought garments to the window. Usually he laughed at her choice and she joined in his response. Then she brought a glittery dress and he nodded a “yes.” She jumped up and down, holding the dress to her chest. When she came out of the store, she hugged him. They leaned into one another and talked and laughed. Their enthusiasm and delight in one another was infectious.
When was the last time I jumped up and down at a suggestion of my partner of friend? Love is animated, responsive and fun. How might this couple’s energy inform my interactions this day?
