Happiness dwells within. It is an intimate, personal experience where you are the CEO, Project Manager, Sponsor, and President of happiness for your life. Other people can expand or constrict it but ultimately YOU are responsible for your happiness for this is the ONLY way to ensure it is sustainable.
If you are happy with self it is easier to recognize and find happiness in other areas of life. As a happy person, there are many people you can enter into a relationship with, marry, have children and experience a happy life because YOU are happy. There is nothing wrong with this life, actually it can be quite a good life.
However there is Amazing Love, an experience where both parties expand each other’s highest good. Amazing Love is…
- Built on friendship and filled with laughter, trust, romance, fun, passion, comfort, growth and security.
- An emotionally safe space where both parties feel safe to be vulnerable.
- A space where both parties feel inspired to become better, pursue their passions, be silly, passionate, etc.
- A space where respect is the norm and both individuals are given the freedom to organically grow, express, and create.
- A space where the couple understands that although they chose to partner with each other, they are not the boss of each other.
- Not a space where either party tries to condemn, convince or convert the other to be or become something that is not organic to their journey.
- Void of control or manipulation (i.e. guilt, silent treatment, coercion, hurtful language, etc.) tactics.
- Comprised of couples who know the key to their healthy ‘We’ space is their individual healthy ‘Me’ spaces and make their health on levels a priority.
- Intertwined with the Art of Conversation and this couple knows how to communicate from a space of love, kindness and respect EVEN when their feelings are hurt.
- Not a place where assumptions are made; instead before proceeding they ask themselves, ‘Do I think my S/O is trying to intentionally hurt me?’ and then proceed for clarification and a win-win resolution.
Once you experience this love or know with all of your being it exists, you cannot settle for anything less; your spirit will not allow it. Fear cannot convince you. The panic of your loved ones cannot coerce you. Here is you and 2016: The Year of Amazing Love! - Misha N. Granado, MPH,MS
