Hello Wednesday,

I stumble upon this prose over Facebook and it’s very well said. I would like to share it with all of you. Smile

ARE YOU WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?

Image linked to its original source

During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”
The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?” In all seriousness, she answered “How do you know?” Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind replied the author.

Here’s the answer.

Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.

People in love sometimes say, “I was swept of my feet.”Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.

Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you
may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.

People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.

Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.

I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later.

Because (listen carefully to this): The key to succeeding in a Relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found. SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM.

You have to know

WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.

Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), Just as there are physical laws Of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.

Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.

Remember this always: God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let GO! β™₯

Read the book first then watch the movie or vice versa? : The Lucky One a novel by Nicholas Sparks

21 Apr

I got the book from a colleague last Christmas when I shouted that I want a new book. I finished reading it last January 2. I soon heard the news that it’s coming in theaters in April (April 19 to be exact) I was so excited to see the movie because I want to compare whether it will be the same as it is in the book.

Last April 17 friends from Powerbundles (Creative Programs, Inc.) gave a premiere night pass. Woohooo courtesy of Lifestyle Network.

Starring Zac Efron (Logan Thighbault) and Taylor Schilling (Beth Green); of course the movie didn’t started like the book did. The visuals made it more understandable. The flash backs were clear and the whole story was easy to follow.

The movie is about a photo found in the desert after a war in Iraq and Logan thought that Beth is his lucky charm, he should find Beth and thank her.

I am quite confuse now because I don’t know if I’d liked it or not. I like the whole story though.

Is it because I read the book that is why I understood it? I have anticipated every scene.

The ending was twisted (sorry if I am going to spoil some clips). Zeus (the dog) did find Ben not Keith. Haha

It was a feel good movie after all. I do not want to go on details about the movie because some of you might have not seen it yet.

A lot of books were made movie after being a best seller.

So I am leaving you guys a question…

Do you prefer reading the book first then watch the movie or vice versa?

Xoxo,

Sammy
