SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Your strength is in your solitude. When you are alone, you are your own. - Leonardo DeVinci

We often cannot see that we have choice. No matter what happens we always have choice. The hurt we experience sometimes keeps us at a distance from responsible choices. We can move through the pain of a changing relationship much more rapidly when we remember that we are never without choice.

Sometimes it is wise to make the choice to be "your own" rather than stay committted to a relationship where one partner cannot acknowledge that there is a problem.

You know the relationship is over when one partner refuses to work on the relationship. One cannot do the work of two. Relationship problems are shared problems. Rarely are problems only one partner's fault.

If relationship coaching is out of the question, then you are faced with several choices. You can stay or you can choose to again be alone. With every choice there are consequences, some good, some leave you feeling lost and alone.

When you have done everything you can to work on the realationship and nothing is working, that's when you must move on. It's a tough decision to make. AND. . . making the choice is the hardest part. Once you make the choice, solutions begin to fall into place.

Always remember that problems are not there to break us, they make us stronger.

You will survive. Perhaps it's time to focus all your attention on "working on you!" Even when you are in a relationship, that is a great idea.

If you need support, never be afraid to request it.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  When self-discovery becomes more important than being right, then every situation in our relationship will present us with an opportunity to learn about ourselves in a new and exciting way.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .   Letting go of behavioral patterns that no longer serve us often feels as though we are risking our safety and comfort. Calculated risks taken for the benefit of our own well being are worth taking. This form of movement is safer than standing still. Those who remain stationary become an easy target for misery of their own creation. The energy we expend by holding on often leaves us drained and with a feeling of hopelessness. It takes no strength to let go; only courage. Courage is a byproduct of a positive self-image.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  There is comfort in solitude. Love partners must learn to cherish their separateness while being together. A committed love relationship fosters respect; respect for each others' right to have some time to themselves.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  You are the architect of your own discomfort. The secret is to never wallow in the suffering any longer than is necessary to learn the lesson the suffering presents.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  You can gain much insight into the power of your attitudes in the stillness of looking inward. A quiet and peaceful mind takes form as a quiet and peaceful body. Your subconscious mind believes every word you say. Your words and thoughts govern how your world and your relationship will be. Believe this and know that when problems surface; the first step is to look within. Take care to accept your share of the responsibility for the problem, then get busy doing what you can to work on the solution. Those who cannot imagine this to be true, spend most of their time and energy making sure everyone knows the problem is someone else's fault.

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "You were right. I needed to take care of me! Without (name withheld) in my life now, I can begin to see what the real problem was. It's amazing the insight I have learned about myself in the past 45 days. Thanks, Larry."

Featured Relationship Article

Read "New Beginnings! What to do, What to do?" - Larry James - Alone again? Perhaps it's time to invent a new beginning. A little "solitary refinement" will help. You can do that most effectively by working on you; preparing for love. . . alone. There is no shame in starting over.

Books make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

A Setback is a Setup A Setback is a Setup for a Comeback - Willie Jolley - Willie skillfully shares his techniques for taking control of your destiny, using anecdotes and stories that will encourage you to focus and take action.

Larry's Review: My good friend Willie Jolley is a winner and has written another winner! If this book doesn't motivate and inspire you to make some changes, you are dead and they haven't buried you yet. Also read: It Only Takes a Minute to Change Your Life. Tip: Never miss an opportunity to hear Willie Jolley speak in person. He's terrific!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - Rarely do I ever send more than one eZINE mailing each month, however one week from today, you will be receiving a very special mailing from me that will help you outsmart any fearful, anxious, or stressful feeling; walk straight into moments that have always scared you; put the magic and meaning back into your relationships and much more. Watch for it!

Guy Finley's "Key Lessons" - The wisdom and wit of Guy Finley. Don't miss this opportunity to brighten your life! At every regular meeting at Guy's Foundation in southern Oregon, there's a special board in front of the class where the Key Lesson for that meeting is written out for everyone to consider before, during, and after the talk. Book mark this page and return every day for a breath of fresh air & something new to think about!

Sample: No one can say 'No' to this world who is afraid to walk through it alone. The unseen cost of this baseless fear is not just to keep the company of cowards, but to lose one's possibility of ever coming to know the company of the Divine.

Pass along Larry's Website especially for authors & speakers, featuring lots of resources, tips, books & articles. Larry has independently published 4 books and offers "author/speaker coaching!"

Relationship Humor

Everything has a gender. You may not know this but many non-living things have a gender.

Ziploc Bags are Male, because they hold everything in, and you can see right through them.

Copiers are Female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.

A Tire is Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.

A Hot Air Balloon is Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air that goes with it.

Sponges are Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.

A Web Page is Female, because it's always getting hit on.

A Subway is Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.

An Hourglass is Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.

A Hammer is Male, because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.

A Remote Control is Female. Ha! You thought it'd be male, didn't you? But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying!

Bride & Groom of the Month!

Wedding (and "Renewal of Vows) ceremonies with romantic elegance and impeccable attention to detail.
