partner

If you`ve already found someone you love and who loves you back, you`re really happy! At the beginning of your relationship, everything looks so romantic and wonderful and you may think you`ve finally got an ideal relationship… But over time, it can be a little too easy to fall into a rut and even make a lot of mistakes that, unfortunately, can crack your loving relationship! In order to avoid any kind of bummers like infidelity, breakups, cooling off and so on, you have to teach to be an appreciative partner! It’s really very important because appreciating someone you love is a great daily work that won`t require too much effort. However, it will definitely help you protect your long-term relationship. Luckily, there are so many things you can do to show your love and fidelity. Here are top 10 ways to let your partner know how much you appreciate him or her.

1. Hug your significant other

Leave your business for a few minutes and give your loved one an appreciative hug! Don`t forget that a touch is a basic human need and your touch – cuddling – at the right moment can also convey your appreciation and affection.

2. Give your loved one a massage

We all love massages! Use this trick to show your love and relax your partner after a long working day.

3. Organize a fancy date

Try to plan a spontaneous romantic date in some special place and surprise someone you love. Break the routine of your everyday life and express your affection. Plan a wonderful dinner in your partner`s favorite restaurant and order his or her favorite meal. Your partner will be grateful for such a grand gesture of your love!

4. Leave little love notes or send sweet messages

One of the most romantic ways to show you love your partner is to leave special notes or send cute messages during the day. In such a simple way, you can express your feelings. Show your loved one that you`re constantly thinking about her or him.

5. Notice the little day-to-day things

It’s hard to notice the little things your partner does every day for you because household labor becomes commonplace for us. But it will be really pleasant for your loved one when you say “Thank you, my dear, that you ironed my favorite shirt for today’s business meeting!” Show her you love her and everything she does for you! Or “Oh, how well you mowed the lawn! It looks amazing! You have great hands!” Express your appreciation to him because he’s a special man in your life!

6. Compliment your special someone

Everyone loves the compliments, especially if you say them sincerely. Try to compliment your partner every day because it’s really nice to be appreciated by someone you love!

7. Spend a lazy day together

You`re both so busy… Just remember when you last watch TV sitting on the couch together? What? You can’t remember… Well, show to your partner how much you care and need him or her. Spend a lazy day together – eat junk food, watch movies and snuggle… Be sure, your partner will be happy for the break and your love. Moreover, you’ll both be happy to get some special time together.

8. Buy an unexpected gift

The key word is “unexpected”! So don’t focus on just luxury gifts for her or him. In this case, the monetary value is not important, it’s the fact that you want to give something “just because”! It can be inexpensive, but meaningful or desired one. It can be even a handmade gift!

9. Believe in your partner and always support him or her

Try never to doubt in your partner, whatever happens. Your support and fidelity will help your partner realize how much you love him or her!

10. Listen to your loved one

Sometimes you ignore your partner when he or she tells you something. But such behavior can be really hurtful! Try always to listen to your loved one. Even if you find it not so interesting or you feel you`ve heard it all already. Make the effort and listen to your significant other. Listening is a key to a harmonious relationship.

Conclusion

Being a good partner is learning to show your appreciation for the little things and little actions every single day. It isn`t so difficult to do, but it is very important for your relationship! Never forget that!

10 Things to Write In Your Journal to Pursue Success

journal

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out.~ Robert Collier

What makes a successful person? This is the question everyone may answer differently based on own principles and own system of values. But generally, we imply achievement of goals, accomplishment, recognition and social status, financial prosperity etc.

All of these aspects are the result of hard work, persistent self-development and investment into advancing own knowledge and accumulating experience.

To make this investment pay dividends you should track your own ups and downs, draw conclusions and map out your goals and growth plan along the way. Keeping a journal is a good way to help you do that.

So, let’s go through 10 things you should put in your journal to pursue success.

1.     Your Successful Self-Image

To become successful you should try and see the picture of successful you in real time, right now. What do you look like? Which are the qualities do you possess? What is the occupation that makes you successful? What kind of people make your social network?

Make this page first in your journal. Expand on the vision of yourself in written. This will help you remember what person you would like to be. By rereading this description, you make your brain believe you really are this person. So, make the best of it!

2.     Your Goals and Best Ways to Achieve Them.

It isn’t easier to know where you are headed or what you want to achieve without goals. If you want to succeed, ensure you’ve set your goal and have a plan on how you’ll carry it out. You can plan a goal that you want to achieve in short-term as well as long-term.

3.      Self-Development and Extra Learning

Success doesn’t come easy. It requires you to invest in self-development programs as well as extra learning. Whether you are planning to attend online classes, a professional workshop or anything that will help you become successful, ensure that you include them in your journal.

4.     Your Great Ideas and Thoughts

We easily forget things because human mind was never created to remember everything. Keeping them in your journal might do you some good. Whether it is just a thought or an idea you think is great, document it in your journal.

“Quite often great ideas invade my mind. Unfortunately, they are never meant to last,” says Jill Evans, a professional writer at Superior Papers. “This made me feel regret because I didn’t use to make notes until I introduced journaling into my writing life.”

5.      Your Must-Read List

From time to time you may come across some insightful and worthwhile articles, books, professional materials you should read to contribute to your success and to enhance your knowledge. Make the reading from your list regular and add new valuable stuff as the list is getting reduced.

6.     Your Successful and Positive Experiences

Successes and positive experiences are celebrated once and forgotten. It doesn’t matter how small or big it is, remembering it when you feel less motivated will get you back to your feet. So, do not forget to document them.

7.     Your Failures and How You Could Have Resolved Them

When trying to succeed, failure is always waiting for that moment when you slip and fall. But don’t give up as soon as you fail. Never forget that failures are meant to build you. Remembering them when you can finally achieve something is one way to celebrate your past. So, write them down and include some of the ways you could have resolved them.

8.      People around You and Their Qualities You Would Like To Learn

Success is much easier if you have role models around you. You need to take advantage of their presence to learn a few more good things. You can include in your journal the traits, abilities or behaviors that make them your perfect role models. Contrary to that, you may add your personal drawbacks and negative habits to see clearly what you need to get rid of.

9.      Inspirational Quotes and Sayings of Successful People to Write in your Journal

Motivation will help you achieve the impossible and nothing does this well than inspirational quotes or phrases from successful people. So, whatever inspiring quote or saying you get either from the internet, or you hear from a person, add it to your journal and reread whenever you feel discouraged.

10.     Questions Which Require Additional Information

When you are trying to learn something, questions, just like ideas will invade your mind. Unfortunately, getting answers is never a guarantee, but not when it can wait. So, remember to document the questions you have to make it easier for you to find the answers later.

Your thoughts, the role models you have around you, the environment you live in and resources you can access, offer you a lot to learn from. Take advantage of what you hear, see or smell, add them to your journal for reference, learning and most importantly, finding a solution. Ensure that you write your journal regularly so that you don’t miss the important things.

Are you keeping a journal? Let us know what your list contains and share your ideas.

10 Behaviors Optimistic People Have

Closeup portrait of a group of business people laughing

There some behaviors all optimists tend to share that immediately make them stand out in a crowd.

Some believe that practicing these behaviors every day could actually turn a pessimist into an optimist.

1. Optimists Tend to Think in Idealistic Terms

Because optimists tend to see the positive side to everything, they are also more likely to think in idealistic terms. For this reason, it’s great to have an optimist around when you’re embarking on a new project because they can give the courage and motivation you need to take on any challenge. Idealism tends to be contagious.

2. They Are Forgiving

Optimists are really great at finding the good in every person or situation. This is way, they never really hold a grudge. They may be a little bit disappointed, because of their idealistic nature. But they’ll always be quick to forgive and forget, because, deep down, they know everything happens for a reason, and nobody is really to blame in most situations.

3. Optimists Lead Healthier Lives

It’s a scientific fact that optimists are healthier than pessimists. That’s not just because having a positive attitude every day tends to lower your stress levels. Optimists are more likely to engage in healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthy. And because they tend to have a really positive outlook on everything, they’re more likely to continue with these behaviors, even if they don’t see results immediately.

4. Optimists Don’t Give Up

Because they tend to focus more on the positive side of things, optimists tend to stick with a task for a longer period of time, even when things aren’t working out as expected. It helps that they don’t stress out about all the things that could go wrong, and just focus on what they have to do, and that great feeling of having accomplished something that comes in the end. They can look past minor setbacks, and see them as learning opportunities.

5. They Focus on Future Possibilities

Optimists don’t really focus so much on the present. When they look at current actions and events, all they see is the world of possibilities behind them. It keeps them motivated, and willing to put in the extra legwork to see their vision achieved. But it can also lead to some frustration, and sloppiness when things aren’t moving as fast as they would like them to.

6. They’re More Prone to Taking Risks

Optimists can’t really see all the dangers involved in a task because they don’t see them dangers. They think more in terms of challenges, or puzzles begging to be solved. As such, they are more likely to be risk takers. This tends to make optimists more successful in the long run. All they really focus on is the rewards they are bound to get at the end of the day. Optimists also tend to have higher self-esteem, which means it’s easier for them to see themselves as being capable of accomplishing anything.

7. They Care About Helping Others

Optimistic people make a habit out of helping whenever they can. This practice comes from their belief in people, and what they can accomplish. Because optimists trust not only themselves but everyone around them as well. They know, deep down, that the small amount of time and resources they are gifting is going to bring great benefits for everyone involved. And because they tend to take a genuine interest in other people’s lives, they are more skilled at reading those subtle signs that let them know exactly what others need.

8. Optimists Sleep Better

Pessimists and people who tend to overthink stuff, in general, have a hard time falling asleep, tossing and turning over every little thing that might go wrong in some distant future. Optimists don’t worry about these things so much, and as a result, they tend to sleep better and wake up more refreshed.

9. They’re Proactive

Instead of looking at a problem from every single angle, considering every possible solution, and all the ways in which they could fail, optimists tend to just jump straight in. They are confident in their abilities, and the abilities of those around them. They believe that if anything comes up, they are sure to find a solution as they go. And they find it easier to think as they go, rather than sitting around, making plans.

10. Optimists Tend to Look for Creative Solutions

When it comes to a solution, optimists have a talent, and an inclination, to move away from the beaten path. They tend to be more creative in general, but they’re really excellent when it comes to problem-solving. This is partly due to their natural self-confidence, and partly due to their dynamic and active personality. Since they have the ability to see so much potential in the world around, optimists have a tendency to get bored with stuffy, tried and tested formulas.

Optimists, in general, are distinguished by their strong belief in the ultimate good of the world. Practicing these behaviors might help in that direction, even if you’re not yet thoroughly convinced.

You Are Beautiful! You Are Love!

How Can Writing Reduce Your Level of Stress 1

You Are Love! 

You are beautiful. You are amazing. You are magnificent.

How does that make you feel? Do you believe these truths about you? Well, perhaps it’s time to do so. I believe that about me (well, most times) and so it must be true about you. We are all beautiful beings no matter what, who, where we are.

Here’s what happened to me as I began to discover the truth of who I am…

In 1991, I had a spiritual experience as I merged with my Soul, my Divine Self, my true essence. I became one with All of It, and I discovered It was All Love and It was All Me. It was a Great Big Mirror of Love. It didn’t come through positive word or thoughts at that moment, but purely by Grace. However, it was not to last because my ego kept distracting me from the truth of who I am, distractions, which for many reasons, we have been conditioned with.

I had never experienced anything like this before, but curiously, it.. was.. familiar…the light which was very small until that moment, like a dimmer switch, turned on fully and illuminated everything and I recognized myself! (I just had that awareness: When I’ve shared about this experience in the past, I have been saying it was familiar because it was the same light inside no matter what size the flame is). More accurately now, I see I am that Light and so it was in the recognition of who I truly was that this experience was familiar. Sometimes it takes a near-death experience to realize or experience this, and ironically, although not a near-death experience, I was at a spiritual center and we were asked to reflect on what we would do if we were told that we only had a year left to live and faced with our mortality! Life is so wonderfully choreographed!!!

Red rose

The forgetting of who I truly am is absorbed for moments as long as I entertain that voice of the ego. I call this battle of wills, between the lower and higher frequencies, the dark versus the light, Love versus fear, my holy war. My ego constantly instructed me to hide, run, and pretend. And it was louder. The soft whisperings of my spirit or soul, that center of eternal peace, steadfast and always present, got lost in the whirl of ego drama all around and within me.

After years of suffering, now I know all I have to do is listen and I will hear its gentle prompting. It’s always there, always present within me (and around me as I woke up to signs and synchronicities). What a wonderful adventure life is!

Over the years, I repeatedly told myself that I was a failure of some sort and I saw how beating myself up would wear me down, completely exhausting me. I first began to see how fear was an illusion, that my mind is like this computer, doing whatever I choose to tell it or focus on. One day, I began my day feeling tired  —  I was born on July 24 and so the theme, 24/7, instructs my life – it kept me up and it kept me tired.

I began my journey back to love and who I was by using affirmations. I remember walking to the bus depot one morning and I said over and over that I was “energetic, enthusiastic and full of life (something along those lines). I saw how I became energized and my walk became enjoyable with every step and affirmation. As I repeated these affirmations and my energy increased, I recall walking past a young man who smiled at me and that fed my increasing energy and light as my heart expanded. I felt so good by the time I reached my destination. I believe that my energy attracted this man’s smile, that what I felt internal, the universe reflected back to me on the outside. This is how positive words, thoughts, actions improve well-being. Try this and see that fear is truly an illusion (Remember, to create your own affirmations in the present tense and as if you are already experiencing them). Fear based thoughts are projections into the future (worries about not having something, a lack of money, for instance) based on past experience. These old fear based behaviors based on fear-based beliefs are patterns that are habitual. It takes work to unglue ourselves from their grip. It helps to become aware of thoughts that are driving our self-sabotaging behavior, and therefore, our experiences by intentionally changing our minds to choose different thoughts, loving thoughts that lighten our gait, our experiences, and our lives.

The affirmation turns into a manifestation, the first part being feeling better leading to increased life-affirming action as we are motivated by our affirmation and drawing to us that which our energy or frequency is. In other words, if I feel great about my life as it is and who I am by thinking so and seeing my life more and more abundantly, I can then attract to me whatever it is I desire, literally waking my dreams up.

Before any change can happen, though, one needs to be in acceptance of what is. This alone will start to change the energy because I am choosing through acceptance to stop the so-called holy war, the fight with myself and the worlds and wholly accept myself and what is. I accept that I am presently tired. Now what will I do? I want to feel good and so choose to end now and go to bed and rest. This life-affirming action even though I am tired, and not optimally my best, I choose Love in this moment by accepting where I’m at and letting go of everything I feel needs to get done and nourish myself with rest because I am worthy of that love no matter what. And because I was graced with knowing I AM Love in 1991, I know I am here to honor that gift of knowing because my Soul’s journey came back to shine and serve humanity on its Great Awakening. Ego will want to have its say, but now I can listen, smile and say, “thanks for the input but we are going in another direction.”…to Love and to who we really are!
