No, we're not talking about a few scraps of paper with dead president's pictures on them to 'buy' passion; this is a 'higher' purpose topic. We're going to use some pieces of paper to incite and invite a bit of passion and romance in your life in only 5 days.
As a successful life coach I'm going to call myself an 'expert' on this one and call your attention to some startling statistics: 67% of first marriages end in divorce over a 40 year period. Half of these divorces happen in the first 7 years. That means that many of these marriages stood a chance if they could have managed to keep their love alive. You can't plant a garden and come back in three months expecting a full and bountiful crop so don't do the same to your marriage. Invest a few scraps of paper in a more passionate relationship.
Let's start with 5 colorful scraps of paper, torn or cut into small greeting card or gift card sizes. Using your best handwriting copy a quote below onto the paper (or type into a blank document on your computer to print, cut and paste later).
Every other day somebody says something without thinking about the power it could have on people. Especially love, it is a powerful thing that makes people do foolish things or something extraordinary. Are you ever moved by quotes? I mean somebody says something about love and you find yourself thinking, I wish everybody could hear this. Below are some of the quotes that make me feel that way.
Think about it. The many problems in our day to day life are caused by the love of power. Many marriages are breaking up because the husband or the wife want to be the one in control. Politicians mislead the people because they are thinking of ways to hold on to power. If we did our actions out of love don't you think the world would be a better place?
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.- Mother Theresa
Putting love into everything we do will without a doubt guarantee success. We don't have to do things because we have to do them, we have to put a loving touch in everything we do. Then we will realize the power of love.
Don't you simply agree, that love is the same world over. Characteristics of love are always the same, forgiving, kind, no fear, being patient and enduring. Other kinds revolve around what is true and they can never mask the real thing.
