Hey there, beautiful friend!
Today I send you a striped, multi-colored croquet set, ready for play.
I send you a man wearing an orange beret, riding a green bicycle with a small dog in the basket.
I send you a hummingbird, right outside of the window, like she’s saying “Wheeee!”
Welcome to your Sunday audio LoveGram.
In today’s LoveGram, we are continuing our conversation about how to be the one to deepen and elevate your relationships.
Hey — I just noticed those two words: going deep or going higher. Creating more meaning and also more lightness!
This is a new phase in the world and it is time for us to acknowledge that relationships are essential to our well-being and our sense of belonging in the world.
Relationships help us grow.
They challenge us to see more, experience more, and feel more!
Listen to today’s Audio LoveGram all about this topic.
Two weeks ago, in a LoveGram called “Be The One,” we explored ways to begin conversations so our connection would be uplifting and would cultivate positive feelings. (Instead of connecting via complaint, which can be an unconscious habit for many of us!)
Last week, we explored how to “Press the Pause Button” when we are hurt or feeling angry so that we could intentionally choose to come from a place of love.
Today, we are talking about creating a container that encourages simple adventure, play, and novelty.
In today’s audio LoveGram, I tell you a story about going to an Open House with my beau, Ian. We aren’t looking to buy a house and we actually never stepped foot into that house for sale, however, driving to that Open House was like a mini road trip!
Simply by “putting a frame around it” or “creating a container” we experienced our time together in an entirely new way. It was amazing!
Instead of simply driving back to his house, which is what we had been doing, suddenly everything seemed technicolor and fascinating.
Look at that! Look at that! We saw all kinds of interesting things as we circled the streets, in search of this Open House.
As it turned out, the Open House was closed by the time we arrived. Haha.
However, we parked in front of it and turned that closed Open House into more novelty for ourselves.
Listen to the LoveGram to hear what we did, because this is something I want YOU to do!!
I give you several variations on this “adventure” because I want you to commit to something like this with someone in your life.
The next time you and your spouse or child or BFF are slated to spend some time together, I want you to turn the ordinary into something extraordinary.
I know you. I see your generous heart.
I know you want to bring more life into your life.
I applaud you for being this kind of person. The people in your life love you for this, too.
Be willing to step out of the same-ole, same-ole and create a magical moment.
You will be so happy that you did!
I can’t wait to hear!!
Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
