Happy Valentine’s Day!

Holly-and-Mike's-wedding-2012002For me, Valentine’s Day is about reflecting on our intimate relationships and you can’t get any more intimate than being courageous enough to choose a life partner!  So I thought I would re-post that essay I wrote with Dennis, When Love Beckons You, for your reading enjoyment.

Back in 2012 I had the delightful honor to capitalize on the ordination I received as a part of graduating from Norm Shealy’s and Caroline Myss’ four year Intuitive Counseling program to officiate a wedding.  As you can see by the picture it was a fun time!

What I said during the ceremony was so well received that I decided to write an essay with the content of what I said.  Dennis Mead-Shikaly, my esteemed colleague, contributed equally to the words but was unable to attend the service.

Today it is these words from that essay that stand out to me:

For being happy with each other does not mean that everything is perfect. It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections. And apologizing does not always mean that you are wrong and the other is right. It means that you value your relationship as much as you value the preservation of your individuality.

There are questions in that essay that are good reflective touchstones on intimacy.  Enjoy!
