SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

There is a line in my "romantic" wedding ceremony that says, "Never stop doing the things that brought you together in the first place." It is part of several tips included in the ceremony for the Bride and Groom as well as a great reminder for the guests.

In my relationship coaching practice I often ask couples what it was that they did when they first got together that pumped energy into the relationship; that originally lit the fire? Many times they respond that they no longer do the things they once did.

When I ask the reason, they tell me that they both work and when they get home, they are just too tired to do anything else. I often hear that the children are their priority now and school activities have taken the place of them having fun together.

Were you too tired when the hormones were dancing and you were excited to see each other again and could hardly wait to be together? I think not. When you affirm that you are tired, you tend to stay that way. What you give energy to, feeds on the energy you give it. It's the law of circulation in action. It gives energy back to you.

Never use your children as an excuse to not be together. Never! Ask a trusted friend or relative to care for the children overnight so you can plan an exciting adventure together.

If your relationship has become stagnant, I would encourage you to get back on track. Make a list of the things you used to do to have fun, then make some new promises to each other that you will no longer use the children as an excuse to not be together; that you will "make" time for each other and you will again begin to do the things that brought you together in the first place.

For a few suggestions, read, "Romantic Ideas to Make it Valentine's Day All Year Long!" If you need some helpful tips, do something fun from this list of 67 things to do together.

It's time to focus on having FUN together. Relationships do not have to be boring. You always have choice to go from happy daze to happy days once again. AND that it is only and always up to you!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  One of the secrets to a healthy love relationship is to never take more than you give.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .   We use reasons to explain away why we don't want to do something different; reasons why we don't want to change. If we know that doing something different might help the situation, not doing something different is called "stupid." The best reason why has never solved the problem. Often reasons why are understandable, however what is not understandable is why we feel the need to have our lives dominated by reasons why we didn't do something different instead of results. When we make the decision to go for results in our love relationships. . . that's the real moment we make a decision to grow and prosper.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Singles Only - If a healthy love relationship seems to always escape you, change your strategy. Instead of looking for love, spend more of your time breaking through the barrier you have built around your heart that keeps love from finding you. This barrier represents the things you are doing that may need to be examined before the voice of your heart can speak the words necessary to bring the barrier down. The only way out of this dilemma is through the barrier. No one can do this for you. Manage your thinking to look at it as a bridge you must cross, not a cross you must bear.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Whenever you become angry you are given the choice to challenge the anger or to surrender to it. Anger loses its power and you are empowered each time you challenge it. You have the power to transform the energy of anger to a constructive experience of release; a letting go of an emotion that can stifle your potential for personal and spiritual growth.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Affirmation - I listen when my lover shares, without making judgments. My heart is always open to hear what my love partner has to say.

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "I lost my temper! It's was like World War 3. Thank goodness he called you and I had cooled down enough to listen. I'm not sure we would still be together if it hadn't been for your calming words and understanding. I truly believe you saved our relationship. C.T."

Featured Relationship "Book-of-the-Month"

Books make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life: A Kick-Butt Approach to a Better Life - Larry Winget - Larry doesn't pull any punches here. This is not your typical self-help book. You won't find any of your typical motivational platitudes or cute little business parables here. This is more of a "your results are your own damn fault, no one cares about your problems, get off your butt and go to work" approach that can help you achieve more success, make more money, improve your business, and have more fun.

Larry's Review: Winget is known as the Pitbull of Personal Development®. This book lives up to his reputation! It's hardcore stuff from a guy with a soft heart to help those who will help themselves. I highly recommend this book!

NOTE:  Watch "Big Spender" on A&E every Sunday evening with Larry Winget! Check you local TV listings for time.

Larry's Newest Book can be found at Business Networking HQ:

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: The reward of being True to ourselves becomes more and more apparent as we realize that most of the fears that stalk us are created by us when we are false to others, or to ourselves; too late we discover that to compromise our own integrity is the same as forsaking our wish to be fearless and free.

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

A newlywed left work one Friday afternoon but, being payday, rather than going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire paycheck.

Finally appearing at home on Sunday night, he was confronted by a very angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.

Eventually, his bride stopped the nagging and simply said to him, "How would you like it if you didn't see me for two or three days?"

"That would be perfectly fine with me," he replied.

Monday went by and he didn't see his wife. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results.

By Thursday, the swelling had gone down just enough to where he could see her out of the corner of his right eye.

LoveNote. . . "Thanks so much for being a part of our wedding. Everything came out perfectly. We really liked the ceremony that you provided for us and we especially liked how we were able to customize it to our particular needs. Your help with the timing of everything and coaching us along was invaluable. Both of us, and our families, really enjoyed your company at the reception." - Cindy & Wes Biery
