Some people believe that Love and relationships are difficult. Some people create a lot of drama around Love and relationships. They think that is the way they are supposed to be. It is perhaps what they have been used to and are familiar with. However, I believe in a different kind of Love. A Love that is simple, smooth, easy and comfortable. Love that builds and progresses over time in a gentle, nurturing way. The type of Love where you know you are truly loved and cared about. Love that is stable, real, honest and true. Love that is exciting, fun, passionate and delicious! Love that doesn’t always have to move mountains but can be just as solid as one. The type of Love where you get to be yourself. Love that gives you the wonderful opportunity to be Loving towards another.
I was recently looking at the word relationship and I discovered something very fascinating. Look at what happens to the word relationship when you drop the first letter ‘R’…. It becomes elationship!!! Isn’t that what we all want. We want to feel elation in our relationship. Elated that in this world of over 7 billion people we have discovered someone who Loves us as we Love them – no matter what. The word elation means JOY, ECSTASY, DELIGHT, EXCITEMENT, JUBILATION! Now that is what GREAT LOVE is really all about.
I encourage you this week to find some ways to turn your relationship into an elationship.
My picture this week came to me while walking through the mall…even the heart looks elated here!!
“When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.” – Natalie Clifford Barney (American Playwright, Poet & Novelist)
