“The difference between where you are today and where you’ll be five years from now will be found in the quality of the books you’ve read.”

In the spirit of February’s two relational holidays: Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing two musts for romantic relationships.
Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard - Episode: Kristen Bell
Kristen and Dax discuss what makes their marriage work. Here’s a hint, it’s therapy.
I think it is a beautiful and real representation of a relationship, even through the bad times.
The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts- The five love languages are a classic for a reason. Whether it is a romantic or business relationship, learning how to connect to people, where they are, is a strength.
Because non-romantic relationships are important too, I want to leave you with Shine Theory from Call Your Girlfriend: A Podcast for Long Distance Besties Everywhere,
"...when you meet a woman who is intimidatingly witty, stylish, beautiful, and professionally accomplished, befriend her. Surrounding yourself with the best people doesn’t make you look worse by comparison. It makes you better."
I wholeheartedly agree! If you are looking for more connection in your own life, then reach out to that woman you admire and grab a coffee, or take a baby step, and let her know something you admire about her.
