Friendship Before Romance
As we look at our relationships, it’s important to have friendship before romance. Yes, I know it’s easier said than done in the heat of the moment, but it’s crucial in looking at the long-term view with your relationships.
How Well Do You Know Them?
I find, time and time again, people want a romance so badly in their life that they forget to find out what the person is like. They forget to see if they even like the person they’re with. Great advice would be, when you’re dating, see if you like the person. See if you want to be their best friend first. See if they’re loving toward you. Watch them in different circumstances. Enjoy the moment, forget the outcome. Enjoy the present and really watch how they are. Watch how they are with you. Are they loving toward you? Are they your friend in every situation? So, again, enjoy the friendship before the romance.
Of course, we you first start dating someone, there will be sparks; fluttering heartbeat, sweating palms, butterflies in your stomach, etc. In most cases, those sparks may fade over time and you will realize that you are will your best friend and soul mate.
However, if you have built a relationship only on the physical aspect, you may be shocked to find that you actually have little in common and have different values than the other person.
Always make sure to concentrate your relationship before romance with a potential partner. In the long run, you will have a much more fulfilled relationship. If you are serious about a long term relationship with someone, build it on a solid foundation of friendship first.
I’d love to know what you are doing to put friendship before romance. I’d love to hear from you.
I love you!
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
As you go through your everyday life, it’s important to be aware how your actions speak louder than words. Whether you realize it or not, people are always watching you and seeing how you react in certain situations. Your actions say a lot about you. The more you are authentically “real” with others, the better connection you will have with them
How Do You Treat Others?
A lot of people, in the spiritual and loving world, talk about love and beauty and loving, and then many times I see their actions are very different. How are your actions every day? How do you treat wait people at restaurants? How do you treat maids? How do you treat teachers, lawyers, doctors, your spouse, your kids? Think about what you say and what you do. It’s so important to do the same and treat people with love.
Can Others Depend On You?
It’s easy to say that you will help others in need, yet a lot of people constantly run away when they have the opportunity to do so. It doesn’t matter if it’s hurricane relief or simply a ride to the grocery store. If you say you are going to do something, do it.
As you know, children are an information sponge and will mirror whatever you do. The better values you show them, the better people they will become. Having some know that they can alway depend on your is vital in relationship and life in general.
I’d love to know what you are doing to make your actions speak louder than words. I’d love to hear from you.
I love you!
Role Model To Kids
Regardless of whether you have young kids of not, being a good role model for kids is imperative. Kids are very in tune with their surroundings. Your actions can either diminish or strengthen a child’s ability to perceive or handle certain situations.
Kids Are Information Sponges
Whether you realize it or not, kids are information sponges. Even though I may something in passing, kids notice everything and store that information in their brain. You would be surprised to learn that a child may have a memory of a situation from years earlier.
Kids remember bad things as well as good. If you want kids to have a positive life, make sure that you constantly surround them in a positive atmosphere. Even if you are surrounded around a negative situation, put a positive spin on it. As they get older, they will do the exact same thing. Kids will always mirror behavior they see from others.
Show Kids Love
I’m a lawyer, but I decided to stop practicing about 14 years ago. I decided to live in love. But as an attorney, I saw many people going through divorces, and I saw them playing emotional games with each other. And I used to tell them, do you realize what your kids are seeing? Do you realize what kind of models they have? You’re both going to get on with your lives, but your kids need love. They need to see you’re working together for their benefit.
So, even if you’re not going through a divorce, even if you’re in a happy marriage, what kind of role model are you for your kids? What kind of words do you use in front of them? Do you tell them that you love them every day? Do you show them? It’s so important. What are you doing for your kids? Show them love.
I’d love to know what you are doing to be a good role model for kids. I’d love to hear from you.
I love you!
Silly But It’s True
When talking about the subject of love, the term “silly but it’s true” resonates with many people. How many times has something that is normally illogical become logical, all because of love?
Love Isn’t Silly
I notice a lot of people think love is a silly subject – a lot of experts in business and all other things. The funny thing is, love is all there is, because when you’re ready, on your deathbed, and you look back – when you’re ready to pass, and you look back, again, will you realize that you should have worked more? No. You should have done this or that more? No. It’s all about love.
I sometimes laugh when other experts think love is just very trite. It’s not. Love is really all there is. So, when you work on yourself, on your love, your self-love and loving other people, and leading with love, even in business, it will enhance your life. Look over and listen to the other videos we’ve gone through. It really makes a lot of loving sense for you and your beautiful life.
Perception Shapes You
The vision or perception you have about yourself and you views on life and love have a direct impact about your life. If your view on love is silly, you may have a hard time attracting more of it into your life. However, the more you believe that its silly but it’s true, the faster love will find you.
The more open and serious you are in the subject of love, the higher the possibility that true love will find you. And when it does, you will realize how silly but it’s true that love can truly become in your life.
I’d love to know what else in your life that is silly but it’s true in your life. I’d love to hear from you.
I love you!
