A few years ago, I received a call from a friend of mine who was ecstatic after a breakthrough weekend that he’d just had with his daughter.
That previous Friday afternoon, he’d driven to his daughter’s college campus for the annual Parent’s Weekend.
Between her school work, her boyfriend and her packed social schedule, his daughter’s calendar always seemed to be wonderfully full – and this being her senior year, she seemed to be even busier than usual!
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, today I’d like to share three strange ways that you can greatly improve your love life. If you’re single and looking to meet that someone special, I think that you’ll find these three tips truly helpful…
And if you’re not single, feel free to share this blog post with someone in your life who isn’t in a relationship, but who would love to be! I’m sure they’ll thank you for sharing this information with them.
These three strange ways that you can greatly improve your love life come to you courtesy of my son, love and relationships expert, Mat Boggs.
Many years ago, I received an invitation to travel to Dharamsala, India, the seat of Tibet’s government in exile, to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The group I represented at the time was to be interviewed to see whether or not we would have the opportunity to co-facilitate three week-long meetings with the Dalai Lama and other world leaders, to discuss how to solve the world’s most pressing problems.
Do you feel that your relationship has lost its spark? If so, you’re not alone!
10 Simple Ways to Spice Up a Stale Relationship on thebridalbox.com
Over the years, I’ve worked with countless clients who looked like they “had it all” from the outside: fulfilling careers, comfortable lives, and beautiful families.
Yet after just a few minutes of speaking with them, they’d often confess that something BIG was missing from their lives. Despite their success, they found themselves struggling to connect with their long-term partners.
And every time I meet someone who’s run into this kind of roadblock in their relationship, I think back to something that happened to me many years ago.
Sometimes the greatest lessons come from children … .
I was out to dinner one evening with my granddaughter, Allie, and our host gave her a small place mat menu with a maze on it. She smiled and said, I want to show you something. She took her finger to the maze and put it right to the end at the finish and then traced backwards to the beginning. She then took her pencil and found her way very easily to the end!
She said, When you start at the end first, then you know where you want to end up and it’s easier to find your way. I said, You know what Allie, that’s just how it is in life. If you know where you want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find your way.
With this lesson, ask yourself: Where do I want to end up? Where do I really want to be in relationship to the important people in my life –with the earth, myself and my creative capacity? Where do I want to end up when I put my head on the pillow for the very last time?
Because as Allie pointed out, when you know where you want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find your way.
