Love, Look At The Two Of Us
“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ― Lisa Kleypas, Blue-Eyed Devil
Okay, fine. You are not soul mates necessarily with your job and love is not the feeling you have for your employer. However, whether you want to admit it or not, you are in a relationship with the company that you work for.
Relationships – the challenges, the sweetness and the in between of them – is the topic of conversation here today and In The News there were some very interesting articles on the relationship and life lessons some have learned from them.
Later this morning, I will again open up and share my journey along this rocky and tumultuous road and give some insight about my “breathing point,” the place where I am standing now luxuriating in the wonders of being single.

Have you ever written “Dear Abby” letter?
Read an interesting but not unique one earlier from a woman wanting to know how to tell her children about their grandmother’s newest love – another woman.
Personally, I found it extremely funny, nonsensical but understood that there remain lots of children who believe that their parents’, particularly mothers’, sex and romantic life is over once they gave birth to their last child. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The confusion was further compounded in this case as the “grandmother” was seemingly in a same-sex dalliance. What?
Now, before any of you go ballistic and unsubscribe to this blog, remember the focus here and in all my work is “live and let live.” We are all here on a journey, to explore and experience Life in all its manifestations. My or your purpose is not to dictate to anyone, neither is how to fulfill that purpose. What one person chooses as their path home may not have been your choice but that is their right. As a society, we have created rules, laws and regulations to govern our living and relating with each other, but there will always remain Free Will.
My personal view and the spirituality practiced here is practical and firmly rooted in love. If that does not match or suit you, feel free to unsubscribe and never visit here again. Should you find common ground with what is posted here – welcome to the journey!
June: Gay Pride Month
The month is fast approaching its end and it would be remiss of me not to take a moment to wish LGBT people all over not only a good rest of the month but a great rest of their lives.
Celebrities over the years have brought the issues of the LGBT community to the forefront. Some people have reacted extremely negatively to this and that is their right as long as they respect the right of everyone to live according to their desires. Again, the views here are based on love, respect, and justice not for some but all and, once no harm is done to anyone especially children, “live and let live.”
Some female celebrities, women who stepped out of the closet and shared their stories as gay recently explained how they came to that pivotal point. Read the full story here and the life lessons they learned from their experiences. Ellen Degeneres and Billie Jean King are among those who shared on:
- Being Oneself
Are You In A Relationship With Your Job?
- Ask for what you want
- Be respectful and expect respect
- Be vulnerable
A most interesting take on relationships and you can read it here and share it with your friends. Please also share this blog and articles posted here with your friends.
