SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Taking your forever lover for granted drives a wedge between the two of you. Then comes the drifting apart you once feared. You become lonely, anxious and withdrawn. What you take for granted, disappears! You and your lover may still be together physically, however, most likely neither one of you are really there for each other.

To avoid the consequences of neglect, you will find that the only solution is the open talk you can allow yourself to have about it. Embrace your concerns. Sharing your true self with your love partner adds a new dimension to your relationship. Allowing your love partner to know your inner-world; to know how you really feel, is sharing at a higher level; perhaps even a spiritual level. You will discover a higher source of strength.

Not being afraid of how your love partner will react is a true test of courage. Being willing to share yourself in this manner tells your lover the level of trust you are willing to express. When you lovingly communicate, the depth of connection that comes from this kind of intimate conversation, brings on a deeper experience of love, most desired yet difficult when you are inclined to withhold because of fear.

You make the choice. Intimacy or separation. It is only and always in your hands. Talk or be silent and wait for the inevitable; the ultimate separation.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  There is no victory without the willingness to risk setbacks or total defeat. Neither is there any conquest of unconditional love in a relationship without the sacred bond that comes from a total commitment to team. Unconditional love implies commitment and the mature exercise of wisdom.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  To live peacefully together in a responsible way, we must learn to understand that we are only responsible for our own individual thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and actions and never for those of our love partner. To neglect our own responsibilities in the relationship in favor of our love partner's responsibility is codependency.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  When you feel a disagreement coming on, think twice or more, before you speak what you feel to your love partner. Angry words, once spoken, reverberate like bells in a cathedral steeple. Remember, you can't un-ring a bell.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Become a happiness enhancer. You can never make someone else happy. That is only and always their choice. You can, however, do things that enhance the happiness others' experience. Dream up a few happy and healthy ways to be that will turn your lover on to happiness. This calls for being creative with your thoughtfulness, being playfully attentive and caring enough to say, "I love you" for no other reason than you experience happiness when you express love in this random and thoughtful way.

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

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Count your many blessings!

"Gratitude unlocks the fulness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. Gratitude makes sense of the past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Melody Beattie, author, "Codependent No More

Larry gets LoveNotes. . . "I have pretty much been a 'know-it-all' during my relationships. But now I have a relationship that means the world to me and I didn't want to mess it up, so I called you. You were matter-of-fact and called me on my %#@*! I didn't expect that but you got my attention and I am determined to make the changes you recomended. I'm glad I called." - J.T., St. Louis

Featured Relationship Article

Read "Forgiveness... What's it For?" - We often think of forgiveness as something that someone who has done us wrong must ask of US. There is always another way of looking at something. My thoughts on forgiveness suggest that you focus on offering forgiveness TO the person who has wronged you. To not forgive them is like taking the poison (continuing to suffer for what they did or didn't do to you) and expecting THEM to die!

Featured Relationship "DVD-of-the-Month"

Books & DVDs make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

The Power of Forgiveness - the DVD The Power of Forgiveness - the DVD - A Film by Martin Doblmeier - Over the last 20 years the topic of forgiveness has come into its own as an area of academic study. This film explores this important work and translates it into a popular, accessible documentary film for public television. The broadcast is only one part of a national outreach effort that includes a community conversation campaign, this Website, and a companion book. The focus is on the emergent understanding of contemporary clinical and academic research that shows forgiveness is validated as having real potential for personal and spiritual transformation. At the same time the film points to the centrality of forgiveness as a virtue in many of the world's great religions and the struggle that people of all faiths have in honoring it.

Larry's Review: What a terrific film. You will want to watch this film more than once.

Sample: There are those who will tell you why it is wise to never forget the pain of the past. . . but if you look closely at the anger, sorrow, and bitterness that has hardened their faces, then you will also see why learning to forgive is the better of the two paths.

Relationship Humor

Kurt was going out with a nice girl and finally popped the question.

"Will you marry me, darling?" he asked.

Lisa smiled coyly and said, "Yes, if you'll buy me a mink."

Kurt thought for a moment and then replied, "Okay, it's a deal, but on one condition."

"What's that?" Lisa asked.

"You'll have to clean the cage," Kurt replied.

Larry James WINS Again!

Larry James has been selected as the "Best Officiant" in the Greater Phoenix area by The Wedding Chronicle's 2007 & 2008 Readers' Poll! - Read more!

LoveNote. . . "When planning a wedding it seems as if everything you choose is the best of the best until the actual day and everything starts to unfold before your eyes. We can definitely say that you did truly live up to your every word and action for that day as promised. The ceremony started right on time, and it was delivered in a manner that had everyone asking us "How did you find the officiant?" "I loved what he had to say!"

You had everyone's attention and kept it short and sweet. You are very personable and open minded. We really enjoyed your style! Thank You for making our day as special as you did. For those looking for an Officiant who's the "best of the best," look no further. We took a gamble and won BIG!" - Melissa & Henry Rodriquez
