In a world that often focuses on the negative, it's important to take time to celebrate the good things in life. And one of the best ways to do that is to share those good things with your loved ones.

• Be specific. The more details you can provide, the better your partner will understand why you're excited.
• Be enthusiastic. Let your partner see how happy you are for yourself.
• Be appreciative. Thank your partner for listening and sharing in your joy.
• By sharing good news with your partner, you can help to create a more positive and supportive relationship.
