It is said that "laughter is the best medicine" and as long as I can remember I have always loved to laugh. I mean constantly laughing to the point I got kicked out of my Spanish class in High School because the teacher thought I was laughing at her.
A few nights ago however, as I tuned in to a comedy show on TV, I noticed a very disturbing trend. Almost every comedian had at least one joke which made love and/or marriage the laughing stock.
My general observation is that oftentimes we tend to make fun of things (or people) we don't understand. And I'm guilty of this too so I'm not necessarily picking on you.
But what if you gained a better understanding of the design and purposes of marriage? What if you discovered that it is a beautiful thing? That you can actually laugh out of the overflow of LOVE in your heart without having to make fun of anything or anyone? What would that mean for you in your search for the love of your life?
Here are 3 benefits of staying the course in LOVE and marriage.
I recently returned from an amazing, super-productive weekend with some of the greatest minds in the Women's Leadership and Coaching Industries. Being in a room full of coaches you are bound to leave with clarity like never before.
Anyone who is serious about reaching their goals and living their life to the fullest needs a coach. Even a coach. So the moment I learned of the opportunity to be able to surround myself with leaders and coaches, deep down I knew I had to go. But the first thought that popped into my mind was:
"I don't have the time nor the money."
With an exclusively breastfed 3-month-old, a very active and curious at-home 3-year-old with multiple food allergies, one primary income source and starting up a new business, I was definitely qualified to make that claim. But I didn't. I ended up going and at the time that I made my decision to go (just a little over a week before the event), I couldn't see how it was going to work. But I followed these 3 steps to realizing the goal.
