How Giving Gratitude Can Create The Relationship You Want

How much gratitude do you show in your relationship? As many of you know, I am a huge believer in the power of gratitude. I have experienced the change that living from a perspective of gratitude can have. Gratitude not only affects my life but in every relationship that I have, especially my marriage. When we show gratitude, it's like we create a magic looking glass. Gratitude works a kind of magic that allows us to somehow find good in a bad situation. It allows us to see hope when a situation looks hopeless. It can soften our sometimes critical eye.

It also works a certain kind of magic in our relationships. As the saying goes, what we feed grows. So not only does gratitude create a space of contentment within us, it also increases the likelihood that our husband/partner will continue doing the things we show gratitude for. So, when all else fails, try a little gratitude. What is it costing you not to?

4 Ways To Have The Relationship You Want In 2011

Contrary to every romance novel and romantic comedy we've ever seen, great relationships don't just happen. They take work, planning and time.

I admit, it is a lovey thought BUT sooooo not realistic. Check out the video and learn ways to plan for and Have The Relationship You Want in 2011.

Are Women Too Picky?

While working as a hairstylist for 20 years I've had some of the most enlightening and intriguing conversations with my clients. I enjoy the creativity but most of all I enjoy my clients and the conversations that we have. Needless to say we have some doozies! Being a stylist actually plays a large part in why I am a relationship coach today.

So the question came up, are women too picky? And the conversation went wild! As you can imagine, there was a lot to say. I recalled a story my husband told me when we first met. It involved a young woman he dated before we met. He met this young woman on vacation. They struck up a conversation and hung out together on vacation. They even decided to go out when they got back home. Now, I want to say here and maybe I'm a little biased, my husband is a catch. He's handsome, smart, articulate, gainfully employed, I mean the list could go on. So you can imagine my surprise when the reason he stopped dating her was drum roll please........... She asked about his shoes!

Now this sounds crazy, I know. But that's why they stopped dating. You see, they went out on a few dates and apparently he wore the same shoes. Not run overshoes, not shoes with holes in them, he just wore the same shoes two times in a row. So on date number two she asked, "Are you going to wear those shoes again?" And he decided that that was their last date.

Now I'm sure this woman has sat with her girlfriends at one point in her life and said, "There are no good men out here." Yet, when one passed her way, she was concerned about his shoes.

So when asked the question "are women to picky"? My answer is yes and no. I think we can be far too picky about things that don't matter and not picky enough when it comes to what really matters. We can tend to focus our energy on things like shoes, clothing and swagger which say nothing of a man’s potential to be a loving, committed partner.

So where are you too picky about things that don't matter and not picky enough about what does?
