Rekindle the Fire

Society’s view of the relationship has changed over the years. A century ago entering into a marriage meant, entering into a life long commitment. In today’s world if your spouse becomes uninteresting a divorce is the first option for a way out. It appears the value and warmth within the relationship is forgotten, and its continual development is seen as an inconvenience.

In actuality, a living organism that is set aside and neglected will die, likewise, so will a relationship if not properly cared for. It is vital that time be reserved for communication, physical intimacy and simply to enjoy each other’s company. A union involves two individuals who are willing to cooperate, compromise and share responsibilities. It is an equal partnership.

Additionally, arguments that dredge up deeds of the past will lead to nowhere. Learn to resolve issues through respect and understanding, both parties have a voice and both must be heard. Therefore, do not be afraid to relate your opinions, this should be the one place you can speak your thoughts in love, without being ridiculed.

No relationship will be perfect as everyone makes mistakes, but it can last if both individuals are willing to protect their investment, and that investment is living as one.

I See in Me

Every time I gaze into a mirror it reveals a reflection of me.
The image I see may not be one of perfection but I know that I am still a person of loveliness.
My self-worth is not founded upon my physical appearance but a mind that is pure and true.
I prefer to live virtuously for I know at the end of my days the memory that shall remain, will forever inhabit the souls I had touched.

I will not allow the insensitivity of others to leave a scar upon my heart.
I am bold, strong and determined enough to press forward as slow as it maybe, on the road that will lead to my prosperity, for my spirit shall not be broken.
On this road I may not gain bountiful riches but I will grow in confidence.

I see in me the power to overcome all of life’s obstacles.
I see in me the ability to choose that which is right in a world filled with evilness.
I see in me a person of value, all because, I love who I am.
