Happy Valentine's Day!

Posted by Jess on 14/02/2018

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every day were a day when we had (and took) the time and were able to appreciate and positively reflect on our loving relationships? How special the people are in our lives? 
The quality of our lives really is directly related to the quality of our relationships and the quality of our emotions. And all that is meaningful really does bring us the most joy is potentially also paradoxically what brings us the most stress too! ... that is a blog for another day!! And that includes the relationship we have with ourselves, loving yourself too. And you are loveable just as you are. We are all a work-in-progress and hurray for that... let us never be complacent or stop growing and learning and being curious. Green and growing, beautiful you. 
It has taken me many years of screwing up, learning and investing in personal development, coaching, training all round the world and applying all the learning to today feeling blissfully content and blessed with an imperfectly perfect magical relationship. Unconditional love, acknowledging and embracing each other, warts and all (neither of us actually have any warts thankfully but you know what I mean: flaws and all 🙄) And there is nothing better. But it requires continual effort, doesn’t it? ... because we all have off days, perhaps when we haven’t slept well, the children or colleagues (interchangeable in their behaviour sometimes!) are being challenging or we just feel under the weather etc Deep heartfelt understanding, compassion, empathy, respect, kindness, playfulness and committed unconditional love, putting the others needs first. Beautiful Valentine  
And if you haven’t found your Valentine quite yet, believe, write down what you are wanting, what qualities he/she possesses, what you will be doing together.... step one, like with anything we want in life, is getting clear about what we are looking for. And no, thinking about it doesn’t count, write it down. Send it to me if you like. And I will share with you the one I wrote before I found Tim (or he will say he found me!). This works. 
And if your current relationship is slightly missing a little sparkle, consider what needs to change, what you are missing and be the change. Delighted to help in any way I can. And yes, it is possible to rekindle that frisson of when you first met ... 
And in the meantime, please join with me in celebrating all those you love today and every day.
Sending you my love and wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day, every day xx

The most important thing from working with Jess was I felt so much empathy and recognition of the things and difficulties I was going through. Seeing somebody with such a bright smile, who has it clearly so together, gave me so much hope, that I could be there too. .. (Read More)
