You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

7 Ways to Deal with Your Empty Nest

It's that time of year. The school year is coming to a close and for those of you who are parents, this means dealing with endings and preparing yourself and your children for new beginnings that lie ahead.  

For those of you that have graduating seniors, like myself, it is a more poignant time of year. It is the time to begin the process of launching your children out into the world. It is the time to deal with your own feelings as your role as parent shifts into a different gear. And as cliche as it sounds, if this is your last child going off to college or adventures of his own, it is your time to deal with the empty nest.

I must confess that while I have helped many mothers and fathers work their way through this time, experiencing this first hand is quite a different story.  So I've decided to share my own process with you in hopes that it will help validate yours. Yours may look different than mine, or the transition you are going through may be different, but I promise you the issues and tasks that must be addressed in order to make your way through to the other side are quite similar. So in the interest of helping you understand what waters must be navigated and how best to do this, read on.

Let Go and Let In

Last week I wrote about how change can come knocking at your door at any time without any notice. This week, I'd like to talk about intentionally finding ways to let new things into your life—a  new job, a new love, a new friend, a new pair of shoes. Both big and small things count. Allowing and inviting new things, people, and experiences into your life breathes new life into you. It's not only healthy to do so but it's what makes life interesting and vibrant.

This goes for your relationships as well. Relationships stay healthy and active when you let in new ideas, challenges, fun, adventure, intimate moments and ways of being.  So what does it take to invite something new into your life?  Well, it takes letting go of something old and creating the space.

Sounds simple... Or is it?

Letting go of the old is not easy. And for some, it is downright painful. But if you do, you will experience a new kind of liberation—a freedom and lightness that comes with detaching from things that may be weighing you down.

To help you in this endeavor, I challenge you to let go of one or more of the following this week:

Another year has passed...

Every year about this time I remind everyone to watch The Pathway to Love video. This video presents the four phases of a developing relationship in an educational and entertaining way. You get to watch a couple's relationship move through the four phases while I describe the issues, tasks and gifts inherent in each phase.  It is a journey that will make you smile, laugh and nod as you relate to all the things that couples go through as they travel from the first time they meet to creating a committed relationship based on deep intimacy and true love.

This video means a lot to me. Not only does it serve as a wonderful way to understand and experience the four phases of The Pathway to Love, it was for me, a personal labor of love. Many wonderful friends and colleagues volunteered their time, talent, and resources in the making of this video. I was incredibly blessed to have so many with so much talent stand by my side while creating a story that teaches, touches and inspires others to create strong and intimate relationships in every area of their lives.

In particular, I take this time of year to acknowledge Terrence Wing, a real life angel, who passed away on December 1, 2011. Terrence was my role model of what it means to be a friend, mentor and professional. He was instrumental in the making of this video. He was the director, editor and videographer. He brought heart and integrity to everything he did and never expected anything in return. All he wanted was for me to be successful. He was a champion to so many and continues to be missed by all who knew him.

So if you've never experienced The Pathway to Love video or have not watched it recently, I encourage you to take 10 minutes and enjoy!

And when you do, send a smile off to Terrence!
