It seems so simple to acknowledge what we cherish. Yet we can easily take such things for granted. A vital part of cherishing is scanning for these tiny, beautiful moments and appreciating them. To do so, it’s important to be present and make efforts to connect, whether keeping up to date and curious about someone’s daily life or supporting future dreams. Here is an adaptation of the “cherishing” skill from The Gottman Institute, which is dedicated to research and training in fostering healthy relationships. Use it as an ingredient of joyful effort in enhancing any relationship you care about.
In your journal, write qualities that you cherish in your partner, friend, family member, or child. You might jot down characteristics such as curious, determined, funny, loyal, witty—the possibilities are numerous.
Next, write this person a note of adoration or appreciation, using the words you chose. Express your cherishing by describing why, and remember to include small, quirky reasons. End the letter with statements of love.
