It’s been almost 10 years since Richard and I said “I DO” on a beautiful rainy day in Boulder, CO.
In celebration of this journey together, we have decided to share 10 Tips To Thriving In Partnership. We feel so blessed to have found one another, but meeting your Soulmate is not enough to create lasting joy.
What does it take to fall in love and stay in love?
Single and married friends alike have commented over the years how much “we work” and how in love we still seem after nearly a decade. We are spending a week camping in the mountains of the Fraser valley celebrating our partnership and the family we have created.
In this #TransformationalTuesday conversation, we will share our Top 10 tips that can be used to create any thriving and joyful partnership.
Feeling hopeless about dating and wondering whether you will be single forever? Let’s unleash the Goddess Within and return you to the truth of who you really are. Become an Irresistible You! Yes Please!
Growing up in a family of strong women, I have always been interested in women’s empowerment. But, just in the past few weeks, I have been investigating emasculation. It is the other side of the coin which I have not really been very sympathetic towards.
It all stemmed from an argument I had with my husband several weeks ago when he was feeling unseen and under-appreciated. It hurt me so much to see how true this was for him. At the time, I was in a state of overwhelm with work and admittedly had not been emotionally as engaged with him as normal.
So, like the personal growth junkie I am, I took total, 100% responsibility for the part I played in this. I also spent some time becoming more aware of how I and the society around us emasculates men. Becoming conscious is truly the first step to be able to make any kind of change.
The first thing I noticed in my own house is how we would make fun of boys being boys and how “icky” they are. (Mind you, these were conversations with my 8 year old daughter). What seems so innocent at first, when you are more aware you notice how frequent such comments are being made, even by men. The first thing I did was to bring this to my husbands attention and shortly there after I overheard him talking to my daughter and letting her know that boys are awesome too! It was as if he took pride in it and took personal responsibility for a more global problem.
If men and women are to co exist, we need to find a place of true partnership. Men and Women are very different and we should seek to understand and celebrate our uniqueness.
I have also realized in the past few weeks that I don’t really understand men and I am wanting to open up more space in my heart for them. It’s as if I love the main male figures in my life, mainly my husband, father, and great grandfather and yet I inherently know that we are wired differently and I often don’t understand how they think or act.
I am committed to learning more about men so that I can connect with them more deeply. Isn’t it funny how this guidance is coming through a week before Father’s day.
So, my challenge for you is to notice where you emasculate men and automatically rob them of their strengths and greatness. I am shocked at how much I do this based on so much conditioning from my family and environment.
If I want to be the most empowered woman, then I must take a stand for men being the most empowered men. We truly do need one another and we all need to be loved, heard and seen.
So, what’s the secret to having a man treat you like a queen? I was pondering this in the shower this afternoon and it really does come down to just ONE thing! It is this ONE thing that makes all the difference. It’s the difference between attracting a man who treats you like crap to one that would bring you and all your friends chocolate bars on a girls night out dinner date “just because”. With my hair wet, I jumped out of the shower and knew I couldn’t withhold this secret any more to my community of women. Today was the day to share this little secret that I had to learn to attract my Prince. Believe me when I share with you that I didn’t always have a man like this in my life. I have had my share of men who were narcissists and the manipulative/ possessive types. I am so grateful to say that some of my absolute best friends have now learned how to be treated like a Queen following this one secret. They say you have to kiss alot of frogs, but if you follow my advice in the video, you will be set off on the right foot to your being treated like the Goddess you truly are. #transformationaltuesday #pinktent #dating #selfworth #loveyourself #treatmelikeaqueen #ownyourworth #selflove #drkelly #vibrationalmatch #queentreatment
