What’s Love Got to do With a Good Relationship?

Love is a really big deal. So many songs and movies are about love. We search for it all our lives and we’re so excited when we finally find it. But it’s not everything. It isn’t enough to keep two people, or even families together and it won’t make an otherwise miserable relationship healthy and fun. You can love a lot of people, but you won’t marry them all. Not even close. So, when you’re seeking someone to share your life with, love is just the start. It isn’t the be-all, end-all goal. By all means, find someone to love, but make sure he’s someone you can also live with. And don’t stay with someone who continually treats you poorly or doesn’t share your relationship goals out of love. You can love someone else who’s better for you.

What Does it Mean When he Says he Wants to Take It Slowly?

You’re getting to know someone new and the sparks are flying. You’re talking and texting every day. You’re having so much fun with him and getting really excited about where things could be headed.

What Are You Willing to Give Up?

There’s an old saying that everything has its price. I believe that this is true. If something is worth having, it’s worth giving up something for. We understand that this is true in most areas of life, but in matters of the heart we tend to be a bit fanciful. We think that we shouldn’t have to give anything up if it’s right or meant to be. I think that’s B.S. Seriously, we’re talking about finding true love here!! Be willing to give something up. Sometimes, the hardest thing of all to give up is the idea of perfection, of what you thought you’d have or what you deserve. Real life rarely lives up to all of our fantasies, but it occasionally exceeds them. Because trading your daydreams for a shared life with an honest-to-goodness human being holds a magic that you’ll never experience in your imagination. To learn more, […]

Stop Trying to Fix Yourself

I LOVE reading self-help and I’m always growing and thinking of the next thing I want to do to improve myself and my life. I used to think that I was just one (or maybe a few) more steps away from being ready to find the love of my life. When I lose the last few pounds, get more organized, have better clothes, make more money…. But when I met my husband, I was still not perfect yet. In fact, I was smack dab in the middle of a really tough time in my life and had tons of family drama. Didn’t matter. What about you? Do you have a few things you want to tweak before you’re finally ready? How long have you been working on improving yourself? If you’re anything like me, you’ll always be up to something. Why not let someone love you right now? To learn […]

Small Choices Create Big Changes

The life you have today is the result of the choices you’ve made up until this point. I know that random things happen occasionally, but over time your choices add up, just like money in the bank. Choices made consistently over time are the blocks that build your life. This is great news because it means that if you want different results, you can make different choices. Decide what you want and then consistently make choices that align with your goals. Will you encounter a curve ball once in awhile? Sure, but over time, day after day, choice after choice, your life can and will turn around. So, what will you decide to do today? To learn more, check out this video!
