What Camping Can Teach You About Relationships

What Camping Can Teach You About Relationships
Recently, I went on a weekend hiking trip at the Grand Canyon with a small group of people and someone who very special to me. For many of us, it was our first hike to this particular campsite and we knew it would be a challenge. To get to the campsite and back, we had to hike 10-12 miles each way for a total of 20-24 miles.

Self-Love Makes You An Original Not A Copy
Originals are always valued more. People will pay for something which is unique and different. I'm not equating you to be worth a monetary number. But what I am saying is how important it is that you know what makes you special and unique, because you definitely have something which is different, stands out, or is specific to who you are. It might be your wit, sense of humor, candor, or ability to rally others to a specific cause. You have something and that something can help you down the path to creating a healthy sense of self-love for yourself. As I coach my clients about finding mates ...

I found it fascinating because I think Lucas set the bar with the level of creativity he brought to the Star Wars franchise. When George Lucas started talking about relationships, however, this really piqued my interest. His views on the subject of breaking up got me thinking. (more…)
