A Happy Relationship is a Mantra Away

Are you currently A) in a loving relationship with your significant other or B) are you still finding yourself in the same routine of feeling “stuck” or a sense of “dissatisfaction” in the relationship you are currently in? If the answer is “B” and you are looking for ways to going from “A” to “B,” see if the following step by step suggestions work for you.

  1. Create a list on how you want your significant other to feel in the relationship you share. Would you want him or her to feel loved, happy, connected, etc.?

  2. Next, think of  some of the negative feelings your significant other is currently feeling or has felt in the past, when it comes to your relationship? Have they been feeling insecure, disrespected, unappreciated, jealous, etc.? (Note: Do not write these feelings down. Just simply think of what they are.)

  3. Then list down the opposite feelings of the negative feelings you pointed out and add the new positive feelings you come up with to your list. For example, if  the feeling of “unappreciated” came up, write down “appreciated.”

  4. Now that you have a list of feelings you hope for your partner to feel in your relationship (Note: Only write positive feelings.), work on making this new list a reality. You can do so by using your list as a daily “Love Mantra.” Before the feeling you would like to focus on, add present action words such as, “I practice” or “I give.” or “I show.” It could sound something like this, “I show appreciation and respect. I am loving. I practice deep listening.” You can read your new love mantra out loud in the morning before you start your day or during lunch. Whatever works for you!


Tuesday Tips: Finding The Right Images


Scouting for the perfect images to add to your dreamboard can take some time and feel like you are searching for a needle in a haystack. That is why it helps to be creative and think outside of the box. Images can be found on line (you can always google it!), in books and magazines, or maybe you have a collection of photographs you would like to use. If you enjoy painting or drawing, you can add your personal artwork to your board. 

When shopping for magazines, skim through the magazine before purchasing. Make sure there are images that you like and represent what you want to attract in your life. If you can't find at least one image you like in the magazine you picked up, put it down and keep on searching til you find it. Never settle. Remember, this is an investment in creating the life you want to live. You deserve only the best! So only the best images deserve to be added on your dreamboard. You want to be able to look at your dreamboard and feel good, inspired, and motivated.

Tomorrow starts with today

Every great story starts with "Once upon a time.." The hardest part of getting anywhere is the beginning. When the journey ahead seems daunting, compare progress to a flywheel. Each turn of a flywheel slowly and surely builds momentum. The wheel moves just a little at first, yet with each push the flywheel continues to move. Before you know, the culmination of each push churns the wheel until it is flying! Progress is similar in that in life, sometimes there is no great "Aha!" moment. Keep pushing forward and focusing on your dreams!
