What do you give your spouse, partner, significant other this Valentine’s Day? Not only on Valentine’s Day but the rest of the year.

The most precious gift you can give is YOU. Sole access to your soul. That means trust, honesty, openness, vulnerability, baring the “real you,” in contrast to the many faces and hats you’re often required to put on with the rest of the world. That means exposing your weaknesses and ugliness along with the better angels of your nature.

It’s an honor and a privilege to be allowed into someone’s “inner sanctum;” the very private place which has a capacity of one. That, I believe, is the essence of marriage or a relationship… of man and woman becoming “one flesh.” Body, mind, spirit completely intermingled.

This is not necessarily a sexual or physical presentation, but the gift of a constant renewal and reaffirmation of your love and commitment is ALWAYS best. It will not only make him/her happy to be with you but it will also STRENGTHEN your bond.

So here is my recommendation:

Whatever attracted you to each other: CONTINUE
Whatever you perceive is a lasting give; GIVE

Material possessions are nice, but that’s NOT why you are together, is it? I sincerely doubt it. It’s very simple, BE HONEST, BE YOURSELF and TRULY LOVE your spouse, partner, significant other.

That is so much better than ANYTHING you can ever buy.
