Love One Another Even When It's Inconvenient; That Is True Love.

The quality of a relationship is contingent upon the desire and willingness to invest time and effort.

If you're placing the sole responsibility on your loved one for improvement, without doing your part, the relationship will deteriorate.

In order for a relationship to strengthen and grow, both parties must commit to working together, for the common goal. 

What if you make the first move? 

Don't hesitate. Open your heart, listen intently and show that you care. 

Sometimes your opinions will differ, but the focus should always be on what is most important; loving each other all of the time. 

Follow These Suggestions:

* Give thanks for all of the experiences you've shared together. 

* Share with each other all aspects of life, speak candidly and listen with your heart.

* Tell one another what you need and do your best to provide. 

* Be present. Make eye contact. Show kindness. 

This will open the line of communication, promoting empathy and closeness with the one that you love. 

Remember, love is a choice you must make everyday.  

With love

"Before You Speak, Consider How Far Reaching The Affect Of Your Words Will Travel ..."

Words produce a powerful 
surge of energy within and around us. Once we open our mouths to speak, we cannot retract our words. 

It's easy to forget this truth, especially when we're in the midst of chaos, pain and anguish. 

Why do we say and do things we later regret??

We feel compelled to retaliate when we perceive a situation to be threatening and often act upon an impulse. 

For example, if your friend or a loved one lashed out on you for no obvious reason, is that an excuse to pay them back "accordingly"? 
Do you have to be unkind and disrespectful? 

Granted, we should not resort to rudeness, but we're human - everyone makes mistakes. 

If we can remember that, chances are we'll be more forgiving and less vengeful. 

Our very essence depends upon what we create at any moment, and words are an integral part of creating. 

Next time when someone is "stepping on your toes", pause for a moment. Before you rush to speak your mind, ponder the result you're trying to get. 

You may decide that it's "payback time", but how will that benefit you or them? 
Are you adding Light and goodness to the world? 

We have the ability to recognize when we're in a place of darkness, (negative energy). We can pull ourselves out of any situation, with the power of our thoughts and words.

With love
