The Relationship Super Bowl

Filed under: Relationships — Larry James @ 1:37 am

Have you every watched the Super Bowl and noticed how each player moves with intentionality. If we could only understand that healthy love relationships demand the same intentionality.

You are not in training for the Super Bowl, you are “in” the Relationship Super Bowl. This is it. This is the big one. This game is for real. It’s the only game in town.

How are you going to play it? Play it safe? Or play to win? You are already in the game. When are you going to begin playing? Not playing around. Playing. Really playing to win. Seriously playing. Going all out. Doing the best you can. Life is too short not to always do the best you can.

Healthy love relationships are worth it. They are worthy of your very best efforts, all of the time.

Can you imagine the feeling of the players when they know they have played the very best they could and they won?

Can you imagine what it would be like to have a love relationship that was a result of both love partners always doing the best they can; one you really loved being in?

I’m talking about the kind of relationship where both love partners share the honor of wearing the championship Relationship Super Bowl ring. The ring that gives the honor of number one to both partners in equal measure.

Teams win the Super Bowl. Part of your honor will be knowing you played together as team.

You are winning. . . and you have not yet won the game. The game called “relationship” is never over.

Your relationship is the foundation for all things good. It demands your constant attention. And when you pay attention to it, other good things happen too.

Catch the fever! Let yourself get caught up in the excitement of a relationship that is full of adventure; the one that you thought you could only imagine.

Go for it! Give your relationship all you’ve got. Commit to playing full out. . . together.

Here’s to the heros; the heros of healthy love relationships!

Here’s to the miracle your relationship can become when you catch the fever and play with intentionality!
