There’s someone special in your life, and you want to know whether to keep the spark alive. Here are 13 things that indicate a healthy, happy relationship. If the majority applies to you, keep him in your life. If you aren’t feeling the love, don’t be afraid to make some changes.

1. You’re happy

First things first, if you are unhappy on a regular basis, get out of there. Make sure your happiness begins within yourself. Those who rely on their significant other for ALL of their happiness usually don’t make it very far.

2. You know each other’s families

You don’t have to go to every family event, but if you’re familiar with his siblings and parents and have met a few of them, you’re good to go. Secret relationships may be fun, but anything lasting means you’re joining the family.

3. You are yourself

You are not afraid to tell him secrets, let him know when you’re in a bad mood, or be a little goofy. You can be relaxed and comfortable with the person you are.

4. You laugh

Maybe he’s not one of the three stooges, but if you are enjoying yourself and laughing a little bit each day, things are going well. Men pride themselves on their humor, and if his isn’t working for you, you know what to do.

5. You don’t have to talk all the time

Silence or pauses aren’t uncomfortable when you are together, and you don’t feel awkward. Good relationships don’t require constant communication.

6. You communicate

On the flip side of number five, a healthy relationship is dependent upon communication. Being open, honest, and talkative with each other is the only way you will get to know each other more. Keep those lines of communication open. The worst way to ruin a relationship is to misunderstand or complicate things.

7. There is little to no drama

If your relationship feeds off the daily drama, someone is going to crack and it will not last long. If you find yourself angry, confused, depressed, or just fed up, it is definitely not a healthy relationship to be in.

8. You have balance

If you are spending every waking minute with this guy, odds are you have lost a lot of friends. If you are bringing your friends to every date night, odds are you and this guy aren’t serious. Find that balance between having both of your own lives and being a part of each other’s.

9. There is spontaneity

If you have fallen into a tedious routine, face the red flag and realize that any healthy relationship has an element of fun to it. That doesn’t mean every day is a carnival adventure, but don’t let things get predictably boring

10. You are learning

A good relationship causes you to think, to be challenged, and to grow. If you are not learning or growing, then maybe he isn’t the one. In my best relationships, I have figured out more about the person I am and the goals I want in my life.

11. You have the same goals

Aside from the happiness factor, this is perhaps the second biggest factor in determining a relationship. If you both want the same things, share the same ideals, and want the same results, you will find success together. If you have no idea what his goals or desires are, it’s time to kick up the communication.

12. He makes the effort to talk with and be around you

Any one-sided relationship will never work. Both sides need to be invested and interested in order for this healthy relationship to flourish. If you are constantly reaching out first or waiting for a text message all day, change something.

13. You feel safe

If you are continually questioning him or doubting your partner, seek safety somewhere else. The healthiest relationships are ones where both people feel safe, loved, and at home.

Maybe you haven’t found your Prince Charming yet, or maybe you’re reconsidering if he really is charming at all. Don’t over analyze these thirteen signs. Every relationship is personal, so don’t be so fast to leave him if he isn’t exactly perfect today. Find the best parts of your partner and figure out if your relationship has a flourishing future.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example

Published

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
