Inviting Others In

by Laurie Richardone

There is something very human about the changing of the seasons, the passing of time spent together. How we all, in one way or another, are experiencing this passage of time.

So, as we welcome this month that symbolizes love for not only the seasons, but our friends, partners, and family, all the people that make life worth living, let’s make sure to bring them along with us. At the end of the day it is love that blankets us with warm feelings of belonging.

It would make sense to want to bring these heartfelt emotions to those around us.

This is an opportune time to take a chance and extend an invitation to someone you would like to get to know better. Not only does inviting others into our life motivate a person to get to know you more, but also it can strengthen the relationship between you and the person you invited in.

What better place to get to know people more intimately than inviting them to sit around the table, sharing a cup of tea, or a simple meal.

Food is the universal love language that is contagious. This language focuses on specific actions that show you care and understand your friend, or your beloved.

Research has revealed that the majority of people find cooking to be a total turn-on. In fact, studies show, when it comes to settling down, finding a partner who enjoys cooking was a top priority.

If you’re cooking for someone, however simple the dish, even if they’re not present during the act, it can absolutely bring a sense of closeness in that you’re expressing your love and your care for someone. It’s a very intimate activity.

It is a delicious recipe for long-lasting love.

Wishing you a magical month, even when the world may be going a bit crazy. It can be thrilling to just keep loving life with boundless, heart-stretching enthusiasm, and gratitude.
