SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Happy New Year!

Here are a few ideas to consider when making resolutions:

1. Set realistic resolutions. It is not wise to resolve to run a marathon if you've never jogged around the block.
2. Take a stand for your resolutions. Endorse resolutions you know you can get excited about; make them your own. Never make a resolution because you think someone else wants you to.
3. Take baby steps. Incremental goals work best. Instead of resolving to shed 60 pounds, go for 10. When you reach that goal, set another.
4. Make a written plan. Be specific as to what you want, then set a deadline. When you reach your goal, reward yourself.
5. Develop a support network. Tell a trusted friend what your intentions are; someone who will encourage you to continue and complete your goal.
6. Reward yourself. A periodic pat on the back (when you deserve it) as you accomplish your resolves will keep you motivated.
7. Think: Long term. Everyone slips up once-in-awhile. Resolutions are goals, not rigid absolutes. If you slip, don't call it off, recommit. Dust yourself off and get going again.

P.S. Be sure to visit our special New Year pages:

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. . .  For Singles Only - 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.

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

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  We often get so busy working on trying to fix our love partner - an impossible task, I might add - that we forget that we are responsible for only fixing ourselves.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Two love partners, standing firm - together - can accomplish anything the two of them desire. The creative movement of mutual commitment can produce anything. . . joy, peace of mind, more love, great sex, understanding. . . anything! The unity of two, in agreement, does the work of angels.

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

Featured Relationship Article

Maturity In Relationships - Maturity in a love relationship is everything! First it is the ability to base a decision about a love relationship on the big picture - the long haul. In general, it means being able to pass up the fun for the moment and select the course of action which will pay off later. Maturity is this and a lot more.

Featured Relationship "Book-of-the-Month"

How to Change Your Spouse and Save Your Marriage - Joel Kotin, M.D. - This book features nine techniques for creating change in your marital partner; each thoroughly explained in simple, accessible language and supported with short, vivid examples from real life.

Larry's Review: You cannot really change your partner. That choice is only and always your partner's choice. However, the nine tips that begin with "going six weeks without criticism" and the others will certainly create a climate in which change is more likely to occur.
