And They Both Lived Happily Ever After

And they both lived happily ever after ... Keep your heart open and make a promise to stay true to yourself and you too will have everyone around you smiling and saying… “And they both lived happily ever after.” And They Both Lived Happily Ever After…

Do you ever wonder why some people wind up with the fairy tale ending while others seem to spend a lifetime picking up the pieces?  True unconditional love…How can we be certain that the soul you declared “The One” is actually the one who captured your soul?  Step out of the path of infatuation and experience the kind of love that’ll leave everyone around you saying, “And They Both Lived Happily Ever After.”

  1. Being with your partner makes you a better person– You’ll find yourself being more compassionate to others, more understanding to people’s needs and you’ll experience a more confident and happier YOU. A pure love gives you the feeling that as long as you have that person’s affection the world is at your feet and there is NOTHING you can’t accomplish! “The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.” ~Nicholas Sparks
  2. You care about his/her welfare more than your own- Being in love means no longer thinking of yourself. No matter what is going on in your world, your mind seems to always want to do something that you know would make them smile.  Your way no longer matters and you find genuine joy just making them happy.
  3. You accept their flaws unconditionally– Everyone has flaws; being in love doesn’t erase them, being in love accepts them. Real love acknowledges the flaws and is willing to receive the ‘not so perfect’ qualities with NO intent on “changing them.”  NO amount of Mr. and Mrs. marriage commitment will EVER change anyone. If you don’t whole heartedly accept every single thing about them then keep on looking because it may not be love but
  4. You go to them first when you have exciting news to share and you run to their side when times get tough- You can picture their face as they not only join in with your elation but are so proud of you for whatever it was that made you so happy. You share everything with them, the good and the bad, goals that never transpired and dreams that only the deepest part of your soul is knows about.
  5. The chemistry between the two of you is OFF THE CHARTS- Some think that chemistry is just the sparks you feel when a relationship is new. But in reality, it’s the emotion that, if present, stays very much in place for the lifetime of the relationship. Unlike what many people think, chemistry isn’t just sexual.  It’s the ability to spend hours with each other without feeling exhausted or annoyed.  It’s the intense connection that elevates you to a level you would have never experienced on your own. It’s the natural interaction between the two of you that leaves you encountering a sense of completeness like the missing puzzle now has his last piece.  Vulnerability combined with physical chemistry unlocks the door to greater intimacy.  The absence of it, in turn, leaves two people with a relationship that never gets past the surface.
  6. You can be fully yourself and there’s contentment- Two words…you’re enough.  When you are with the person you love there is no pressure or condescending words to be anything but yourself.
  7. You are each other’s best friend- Conversation happens but isn’t required. Looks are exchanged, eye glances are understood, and a touch is interpreted without a single word.  You’re content and you know without a doubt that the other one has your back.
  8. You can’t imagine life without them, present AND future- This includes, having the desire for everyone around you, especially your family to see them as the amazing person that you do. This person is constantly on your mind on every occasion and in everything you do.  Life suddenly feels complete and you can’t imagine time on this Earth without them.
  9. You are spiritually and mentally connected– Personalities may not be equal, but true souls always are. You are connected by the heart so when they hurt, you hurt.  You are connected by the spirit so when you grow spiritually, they grow spiritually.
  10. No matter your circumstances, you’re willing to take the risk- You open up your heart with the understanding that it may get broken yet in the same breath you unlock your soul with complete vulnerability, because you know that this is the only way to allow your heart to truly feel.

Real love, to me, happens when you find that someone who can and does completely take your breath away.  Finding “Mr. Right” or discovering “Mrs. Perfect,” can be a challenge but the secret  actually lies within YOU. Instead of working to make it happen with the right person, work on making yourself the right person for YOU.  What will happen is the right person will then be drawn to you based on the work you have done for yourself. Dr. Seuss once said, “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.” Keep your heart open and make a promise to stay true to yourself and you too will have everyone around you smiling and saying… “And they both lived happily ever after.”
