The past several weeks you’ve been using the Personal Reflection tool to become more aware of the treasures that lie inside you and inside your partner.

Today, I’m going to invite you to use this powerful tool one more time to become aware of the treasures that lie inside your relationship.

First understand this:  YOU  +  ME  =  WE

Your relationship is a living breathing entity that requires your time, energy and attention, just like a garden.

I want to invite you to make three, new Personal Reflection Lists to support you to explore and find the treasures inside your relationship.

Personal Reflection List #1:

If you and your partner are co-creating your ideal relationship (YOU + ME = WE), what are the special or unique qualities of your relationship that are a perfect fit for you.

Personal Reflection List #2:

If you and your partner are co-creating your ideal relationship (YOU + ME = WE), what is it about your relationship that provides the opportunities for you to express your extraordinary gifts and talents in the world?  

Personal Reflection List #3:

If you and your partner are co-creating your ideal relationship (YOU + ME = WE), what is it about your relationship that supports you to stretch, or risk or grow beyond your comfort zone personally or relationally?

What treasures did you find inside your relationship? How valuable might it be to stay mindful of the treasures? How much richer and happier might you be if you acknowledge these treasures every day?

Once again, please recognize that today is the beginning of a new habit you are building; the habit of recognizing and acknowledging YOUR RELATIONSHIP; the safe place that supports you and encourages you to be the full expression of who you are in the presence of your partner.

Until a habit becomes automatic it’s still a choiceSo, chose to return to your Personal Reflection Lists often, and add to them generously!

Remember, only YOU can make it happen!
