It’s not being in love that makes me happy. It’s being in love with you that makes me happy. —Anonymous

in love with you

I’m so in love with you.

How you say this phrase can change the whole meaning. 

Is there a difference between loving someone and being in love with someone? 

Does it matter what we tell ourselves? Does it matter what we tell our spouses or the world?

Do two little letters really make that much of a difference?

Think back to those early days with your spouse. Likely at some point you said or thought, “I think I’m falling in love”. 

There was so much wrapped up in how you felt when you were around him or her. There was emotion tied to how he or she made you feel. All the hormones running wild…the excitement, the anticipation, the newness of everything. 

You must have been falling for this person. And then there’s that day, when those little words come out and change everything

Those words had so much power the first time that they were said. Eventually all those feelings had you walking down the aisle, saying I do and becoming Mr. and Mrs. 

And then maybe, somewhere along the line you find yourself stuck in the routines and going through the motions. 

You still say “I love you”. 

Or maybe you don’t. 

Maybe you find yourself thinking “I don’t know if I’m in love anymore”. What happens then? 

Could two little letters make a difference in what you think AND how they feel?

Yes, they can. 

The power of words you choose not only has an impact on you, but also your spouse and your marriage. How you express this to one another is simply another way you choose to do that.  

Change your word choice by saying I’m in love with you.

Watch their face when you say it.

It will change your whole view on that little phrase.
