A girlfriend of mine and I switched it up last night with a yoga class girls night. It was so refreshing to swap our usual wine and food nights, for something a little more healthful.
I had read Anne Friedman’s article about the importance of courting friends, and it made me think about the nature of dating in a love relationship and in friendships.
An effort to keep things fresh and interesting is so important in both. And both require a thoughtful input of time and energy well beyond the “honeymoon” phase. I’m just as guilty as any of easy routines, that can easily become ruts.
Last night was a good reminder of how easy it can be to refresh the way I spend time with the important people in my life.
