Today is a special day for me. It was this day 20 years ago that I met my now husband. Twenty years is a long time and when I look back over it, it has been amazing. We’ve done some really fun and exciting things along the way. We’ve traveled the world together going to places like London, Paris, Italy, Norway, Amsterdam, Egypt, Wow what a trip, the Caribbean and all over the US. We’ve shared some laughs together and celebrated some major accomplishments in our various businesses. You know it has truly been a remarkable life so far and we have had to navigate some hard times as well.
Relationships are dynamic and ever changing.
Recently I was talking with a girlfriend and she shared with a conversation that she had overheard in a coffee shop between two young women. They were casually referencing their first husband problem. They were almost expecting or waiting for that other person to step across the line so that they could get a divorce and move onto second husband. This was their norm and it broke my heart. It was almost like they were going through a marriage where they never truly committed. They just had one foot in and one foot out.
Look this is our time on this planet and we get to say how it goes. And I just want people to know that there is something really special that’s possible in choosing to find true love in a long term relationship. You too can have this in your own life if you choose to create it. What I find is possible in being in a long term relationship is a love that is so deep you can feel it in every fiber of your being. It is loyalty, commitment, admiration, support, trust and it is so worth it.
If I had to sum up, what are some of the biggest things that I had to understand and practice to keep and maintain my relationship, it would be to be true to oneself. Model the behavior that you want to see in your life. Be loving, kind, generous and compassionate even when it is hard. When we fight or resist, we end up just getting more of that. Know your boundaries though and take care of yourself for sure.
Come from a place of freedom where your partner is free to go through what they need to go through. They are on their own journey and they need to know that you love them through all of it. And respect their need to be free to choose the relationship for themselves.
Relationships are a dance and they are more fun when the partners trust each other completely. It gives them freedom to express themselves individually, to grow and expand individually and then come together to create this beautiful move that shines as an example of what is possible for others in the world.
Power UP! for the day:
Be Open, Confident, and Compassionate with your Significant Other to experience more in your relationship.
The impact of this way of being: to you, to others and to the world
This way of being impacts you directly with feelings of happiness and fulfillment. Being Open, Confident and Compassionate impacts your significant other giving them deeper feelings of love and confidence. As others in the world witness this way of being, they see the possibility for peace, love and hope in their own lives.
You can make a difference in the world TODAY by shifting your being and taking your relationship to the next level.
So there, that is what I wanted to share with you today. Thank you for allowing me to celebrate with you my 20 years milestone. It feels like a big accomplishment to be with someone that long, and I adore him and I am super grateful that he is in my life. I want to share that with you and I want that for you as well.
