SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

A quick note about the LoveNotes for Lovers eZINE: After much thought, I have decided to continue publishing our newsletter as a text only e-mail. With more than 3,200 people requesting our eZINE, slightly more than half have been able to receive the fancy html version. Over agressive junk or trash filters seem to be gobbling them up. It won't look as pretty, however we will continue to make each issue available on our Website if you have a craving for graphics. (See link to this issue above).

Recently, many of my coaching clients have been singles who have expressed concerns about whether they are ready for a committed relationship. There is no shame in remaining single for awhile. There is no rush. It is difficult to see the full picture when you are inside of the frame. That is why singles call a relationship coach.

It could be said that one of the signs you may be ready for a committed relationship is when you reach a point where you've found someone you love and want to be with, yet you experience a feeling of hesitancy to relinquish the freedom you have also learned to love.

It is the solitude of single life; a place where you learned to love who you are and be comfortable with that. It is proof that you know about discipline. When self-discovery becomes more important than being right, then every situation in our relationship will present us with an opportunity to learn about ourselves in a new and exciting way.

To allow yourself a time of healing, a time to get to know you, is a wonderful gift; the same gift of love that now presents the challenge to step into the future, without holding on to the past. It is the first step you take while you are still afraid.

It requires letting go of the need to be in a relationship and mastering the fear that keeps you from taking the first step to the next relationship; the singles' rite of passage. The reluctance to experience this ritual may come from a lack of conversations that construct the mutual commitment necessary to honor each other's right to be alone while you are together.

True acceptance of your own and each other's individuality and separateness is the only foundation upon which a mature, healthy relationship can be based and from which unconditional love can grow.

A new freedom waits to be discovered; the freedom to be who you really are with the one you love.

About Larry James: Call a coach:

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Women Only - Be patient with your love partner when it comes to listening. Help him learn to listen by saying things worth listening to. In time he will learn how to share how he feels, openly and in a way that allows him to be vulnerable without fear. When this happens, initiate conversation that shows your appreciation of his new way of being. Patience and understanding are necessary.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  You can gain much insight into the power of your attitudes in the stillness of looking inward. A quiet and peaceful mind takes form as a quiet and peaceful body. Your subconscious mind believes every word you say. Your words and thoughts govern how your world and your relationship will be. Believe this and know that when problems surface; the first step is to look within. Take care to accept your share of the responsibility for the problem, then get busy doing what you can to work on the solution. Those who cannot imagine this to be true, spend most of their time and energy making sure everyone knows the problem is someone else's fault.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  A determination to resolve conflict by conversation offers a chance for healing and promotes the opportunity to become closer to the one you love. Cherish your differences. They are there for a purpose. Learn from them by learning to freely discuss them. Withhold your disapproval. Listen with acceptance and understanding. Conversation occurs when someone is speaking and someone is listening. Being an attentive listener often offers an opportunity for healing and suggests a deeper level of love than simply saying, "I love you!"

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  A great relationship begins with you. Make yourself better than you ever thought you could be and you will find the relationship you have with your love partner getting better. This works especially well when two people are focusing on working on themselves; together. Then, the relationship you have with the one you love can only grow and prosper.

Only selfish people think only of themselves. When you really love yourself you cannot help wanting to give some of your love away. Other people have a need to be loved. So do you. People are like that. Like attracts like. What you become you attract. Want a great love partner? Become a great love partner! Work on this one. Sharing love with someone else must only and always begin with you. Learn to relate to yourself better.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  In a sense, a great love relationship lives on the tip of your tongue. Things go well because you both say so. . . and because of what each of you do. The thoughts you have about yourself, your love partner and your love relationship often end up in the words you speak in your relationship. Words can never be recalled. Once out there. . . they do their intended work; interpreted however they may be by your love partner.

The words you speak determine what shows up in your relationship. Relationships cannot be truly great and utterly incredible unless you make internal changes in the way you think and take caution of the words you speak.

Featured Relationship Article

The Dating Daze! - For Singles Only - The grown-up dating game has never been more interesting and challenging. There are more players than ever before. Why? Because of higher divorce rates, longer life spans, and a greater tendency to never marry. This contributes to more single Americans than at any other time in our country's history.
