SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Change is always possible in our relationship because it is only and always a choice. Taking responsibility for our choices leads to a profound sense of freedom and inner peace.

What you resist, persists. The more you hold on to being right about your position, the more you get to grapple with your own inner thoughts about doing what's right vs. doing what's wrong. It's an energy drain.

It is abstract conjecture to assume that the more you hold on, the problem will go away. Problems do not go away unless you divorce yourself from your concerns about being right, begin to seek solutions and decide to change the way you are being in a relationship.

We are strongest when we are letting go of what doesn't work. That's change in action. When we open our mind to behave in a different way, we create the freedom to love. To open our hearts to love is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to ourselves.

When you finally understand that it is not unfashionable to negotiate situations rather than standing firm and allowing the past to rule your present, relationships become relationships you can live with.

When you understand that time spent justifying your position that is not working is futile, you can then move forward with a velocity that frees you to address the issues and deploy solutions that are clearly essential to everyone's well-being.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Commitment is a deep trust, a devotion discovered in the choice to be together. Commitment needs no agreements because it is based on desire, not obligation. A forever love relationship requires devotion, loyalty and a mature ability to commit.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Committed love partners know it is wise to plan their time together. Go on a date. Talk about it. Plan it in advance. Don't wait until the last moment. Take turns planning these events. Lovers show their consideration for each other this way. To do otherwise is to take your togetherness for granted.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Affirmation - I know that if I want my love relationship to fulfill its purpose, I must enlighten my experience of it. I must drop judgments, pre-conceived notions, opinions, expectations, positions and beliefs about it. When I do this, a miracle occurs. The miracle that occurs is that the love relationship I have becomes the love relationship I want; the one that nurtures and supports me; the one that truly empowers my love partner and me.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  It is never appropriate to suppress anger or to disregard how we really feel about it. When we feel anger, it is a very real feeling; at that moment, we have an intimate relationship with it. Anger is difficult to contain. When we are angry, we often feel a need to demonstrate it, talk about it and let people know that we are indeed angry. Only and always talking about it is not enough. Talking about it helps only if your intention is to seek to understand it or to find a way through it, not to justify it or hold on to it.

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

Relationship Humor

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. The next week, the man realized that he would need his wife to wake him at 5 a.m. for an early morning business flight to Chicago.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (AND LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5 a.m."

The next morning the man woke up, only to discover it was 9 a.m. and that he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't awakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, "It is 5 a.m. Wake up!"
