Listening to You to Revitalize Our Marriage
How to “stay tuned” so your partner feels LOVED
In my last post, I spoke about the importance of couples listening to one another, and I suggested an emotional intimacy formula that is more or less full proof when used consistently.
The formula involved the couples asking the other one simple question and making one simple statement...
How We Leave Not What We Leave Matters
Feeling loved is such a blessing. It is a measure of our prosperity in relationship to people and things.
When we feel loved we expand our consciousness and attract more good. We feel blessed and we become a blessing to those around us.
Today I Should be Happy
It's official. Our home has been sold, and that sign we have envisioned with letters S-O-L-D out in front is about to reflect those very letters. This was our dream home.We built it more than eight years ago, after leaving a smaller initial home that we built 13 years ago.
That first home was the home of our new marriage. My soul sister and I blended our lives with my husband as a new "trio". Then we welcomed my parents to live full time with us. It was also the place we said goodbye to my lahsa-poo of 14 years, Hector Flynn (Hecky) and both of my husband's dogs, Dodger and Jiggles. It was a wonderful space that provided a new home for us in a new state.
What You Get is What You See?
This is a time for living each day to the fullest.I am aware of that and yet , in years gone by, a time for closing a home , "should" be a happy one. At least in the past, that was my experience. Of course I do not believe in using the word "should" so even as I write these thoughts, I want to change them.Nonetheless, "closings" were always filled with a sense of starting again, and for this baby boomer, that hope carried me forward. But today was different. I sold a home without fanfare.This sale challenged the wind in my sails as I came to realize that for the first time in my life, my investment in real estate was not the investment I had hoped for.
Were Not Our Hearts Burning:Living Our Legacy
I have always been fascinated by a truth which is a tenet of prosperity: “what you manifest is dependent upon what you “see”. If you see with wisdom you tend to manifest more, if you see with care you tend to manifest more…and on and on.
We are coming to the last month of staying in this home. After 8 years of being here in the "dream home" we built,we feel the attachment to this place quite keenly. Many memories were created here and this was the last home where my dad lived before making his transition. So for me moving on from here is especially poignant .
