SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

A great relationship begins with you. Make yourself better than you ever thought you could be and you will find the relationship you have with your love partner getting better.

This works especially well when two people are focusing on working on themselves; together. Then, the relationship you have with the one you love can only grow and prosper.

Only selfish people think only of themselves. When you really love yourself you cannot help wanting to give some of your love away. Other people have a need to be loved. So do you. People are like that. Like attracts like.

What you become you attract. Want a great love partner? Become a great love partner! Work on this one. Sharing love with someone else must only and always begin with you. Learn to relate to yourself better.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Affirmation - The greatest rewards of living and loving come when I step out of the bounds of my ordinary existence and extend myself beyond what I believe my limits to be. I am willing to give myself to the relationship without giving myself up in the relationship, and to be willing to be what grows out of it.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  When we are angry our feelings change from moment to moment. Anger produces feelings that are unreliable. Our feelings often rise and fall as our energy is drawn from the unstable emotions present when anger is being expressed. In those moments our feelings may not be the most reliable source of information to help us move past it. Before you blow up, cool down.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Often we are not present in our relationship. We are either looking into the past with regret or into the future with concern. This is it! To experience the reality of the present we must learn to live in the present; to be present to the experience of right now. The possibilities of the present are only available to those who are willing to live and love in the present. We cannot change the past and a concern for the future allows us to be absent from the present. Both options keep us stuck! Live and love every moment of right now!

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  It is only and always fear talking when we hear a voice telling us not to get our hopes up because we will only be disappointed. Relationships can drown in negative emotions. Feelings of fear are created in our own mind. The moment fear appears; we give up our power. Feeling fearful is only an expression of a lack of love working in our relationship. Fear only surfaces when we call it up by temporarily letting go of love.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  An essential part of true listening is the discipline of temporarily giving up or setting aside your own prejudices, frames of reference and desires to experience as much as possible your love partner's world from the inside; hearing what is truly from the heart.

From the book, "LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing!" by Larry James

Featured Relationship Article

Read "A Few Words About Words" - On the way to run a few errands I drove by a bad accident. It was obvious that someone was critically injured. I temporarily forgot I was driving and momentarily closed my eyes to say a quick prayer and ran off the road and hit a tree. When I called my office for help, there was a message on the phone for everyone to hear, which said that my wife wanted a divorce and she would be staying at the Hilton.

Featured Relationship "Book-of-the-Month"

Books make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

I'm Counting to 10 I'm Counting to 10: Hope and Humor for Frazzled Parents - Jahnna Beecham & Malcolm Hillgartner - All parents of young children have a secret, something they find amusing that other adults consider disgusting. Accidentally swallowing the cup of water your daughter used to brush her teeth, pointing out road kill to stop the kids from fighting in the car, letting the neighbor boy - who can¸t find a Kleenex - blow his nose on your skirt. Not for the faint of heart, or for those in pre-parent years (they may choose not to have children after reading this book). Parents in the trenches, however, driving minivans filled with Happy Meal containers, discarded clothing and melted crayons, will find inspiration and understanding in this book.

Larry's Review: An "easy-read" book all parents can relate to. You'll enjoy this book!

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. . . "Sally and I thank you, Larry, for sharing our Big Day with us. I think we all had fun, and truly appreciate your professionalism and gentle humor in keeping the whole event running smoothly. We enjoyed your gentle way of taking charge of the ceremony once you knew how we wanted it, the flexibility of customizing our ceremony made it even more special and personal.

Your messages and philosphies were well received, as it's apparent you care about what you do, and those you do it for. Sally and I enjoyed how you blended in with the fun at the reception. It was, indeed, a Celebration of Love. Thanks again for bringing the perfect atmosphere to the entire event. A great person, a good friend, and a trusted professional, we're glad you were there." - Sally & Donnie Mather - Visit the Mather Photo Gallery
