Commit to an “Awesome” Relationship

I was going to tell you that the following was the secret to a healthy love relationship, but it really isn’t a secret. Although it is quite puzzling to most.

It is most likely something most people know and… never quite commit to doing. I was trying to think of another word to describe what the end result would be if they did and the word “awesome” came to mind. Awesome has been defined as a “respectful wonder.”

Think about your relationship this way…

I believe that the first piece of the puzzle to a happy, healthy love relationship is to think about how your relationship would show up for you if you could totally be committed to it.

The second piece of the puzzle is to create a relationship like a pianist has with the keys. When their music is creatively inspired both the fingers and the keys are in sync. They make beautiful music together. It’s a very close and intimate connection. It’s a connection of respectful wonder or in one word… Awesome!

A pianist knows exactly what will happen when he plays the right key. It’s the relationship he has with the keys that makes all the pieces of music fit together to make the complete work be awesome.

The third piece of the puzzle is to totally commit to consistently play your relationship music like the relationship the pianist has with the keys with the end result being that you make beautiful music together. This is the part that causes most couples to stumble. Learn to play the right keys. Only play the keys that get you the result that you are both committed to. Harmony is a good thing. It creates and supports an intimate connection.

So… now that you know, can you make that kind of commitment to your relationship? If you both want an awesome relationship at least consider it.
