You Can Change Time!
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."--Albert Einstein
"Summer lovin' had me a blast...summer lovin' happens so fast!" Danny and Sandy, from the epic movie Grease are two of America's favorite high school sweethearts. They began at opposite ends of the spectrum and were brought together by chance circumstances. However, the reason their relationship blossomed into a long-term commitment is because both of them took a RISK. Danny was a bad boy rebel; while Sandy was a good obedient girl. They had strong feelings for each other, but when it seemed their hearts would never successfully collide, they had to start thinking outside the box. Danny began pursuing wholesome endeavors like running track, whereas Sandy started curling her hair and wearing leather--and it WORKED. Bending and flexibility are good for you. My yoga teacher agrees!
"Change your latitude to change your attitude." If John Travolta and Olivia Newton John's characters had maintained their tunnel vision and not thought of new ways to live life, they never would have succeeded in love. This is true in real life too. It is so easy for us to get stuck in a routine--in fact society practically demands it of us. We are encouraged to follow a certain trajectory from childhood through adulthood and then into old age, but these traditional ideals don't work as well anymore. Our World has changed, and we need to follow suit. I have a client who is a beautiful woman in her late 30's. She had a successful and lucrative career as a senior analyst, but it took up a lot of her time. Something was missing. It was around this time that she joined Revolution Dating. She began dating new, interesting, and like-minded men, and is now in a loving, long-term relationship. The same happens in with my clients in their 70s! It's incredible to witness.
Think outside the box. Instead of feeling envious towards happy couples you know or see around town, change your perspective and say to yourself: "Good for them. I am so glad that they found each other, and I hope their relationship continues to grow. My perfect match is just around the corner." You might feel a little silly thinking this way at first (especially if your dating prospects lately have been slim), but it is true that what we think about, we bring about. Be the change you seek. Time has changed you, but you can change time. (David Bowie sang it best!)
Ask yourself: "Is my love life going well?" If the answer is NO, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and know that change is an absolute order. Stop fishing in the same pond. Stop dating the wrong types of people. It is NOT serving you. This is not rocket science. Your love life needs an upgrade. Period. You are wasting your time and not getting any younger. Let your life blossom before your eyes with real love and sincerity. Look at the photos in my column from month to month. Look at their smiles!
"If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten!" In honor of the Summer of Love 2019, you owe it to yourself to transcend your typical mindset. When it comes to love, something is not working for you...or for someone you know and that is why you are reading this column (most likely). You never know what you might find when you get bold and daring! The World needs more love. You need more love. Love heals and love is the answer for all of us. Always remember your next and best relationship is ONLY a phone call away! My team and I are here for you. Thank you for joining me monthly to read this column, which is now published in over 25 publications. The news I share in this column with you is about four letters: LOVE.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
