Recently I read somewhere, (Okay in Cosmo to be exact) this cute little excerpt by Gabrielle Bernstein, a New York times Best Seller, Life Coach and the author of the new book, Miracles Now; that made me look at things a little different, and just in time for the red and pink holiday. I hope you guys enjoy, as much as I did.
Get clear on who you want to be in a relationship. Make a list of the things you want to bring to the relationship—do you want to be honest and caring or maybe sexy and fun? Too often we think about what we want the other person to be but don’t think about ourselves. You’ll get back what you put out there.
Treat your romance like a friend and your friends like a romance. Release pressure from a romantic relationship by acting like you would with a friend. You’ll be more authentic and relaxed. And prioritizing friendships by making dates and putting in effort also takes the pressure off the romance by making you less emotionally needy.
Leave a good-energy imprint. Measure the success of your date by how much fun you have, not by how cool or hot you were. When you have a great time, the other person feels that, which creates a positive-energy imprint.
Forgive your past relationships. If you’re carrying resentment from your last relationship, it will get re-purposed in your current one. Letting go of those past dramas will allow you to get rid of your baggage. Forgive your exes to give your current or future boyfriend a chance.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to call some girlfriends, set up some dates, make new memories and finally relax. I have so much going on in my life right now, and Q is a great factor in it. We are not perfect and we both try our best to always become better people. In our relationship or out of it. I want to start having dates with him, where we don’t stay at home watching Netflix all the time (as much as I loooove it) I want some action, let’s climb something, experience new things. Laugh some more, a lot….
I need to make time for it all.
Plus, I really need to start painting….but that’s another story!
