In the United States, there is an average of 2,600 divorces per day. This means that there are no less than 108 divorces per hour. Before you have finished reading what I have to say, one new divorce has already happened somewhere in the United States.
While some of us may decide we are no longer keen on staying married, others are growing apart over the years. It is easy to fall in love; it is equally easy to fall out of love. But it does not have to be that way. Commitments are made to last. If we are not able to keep our commitments, perhaps we should not have made one in the first place.
Love is probably the best gift one can get, but please do not take it for granted. There are tools we can use to improve our loving relationship. Mindfulness is one of them. Mindfulness is a self-help tool. When used in the right way, it can make a big change in our lives. It can enrich our living relationship in a way not seemed possible before.
I want to talk about improvement in our loving relationship because I think it matters so much to us. And I have written my book on loving relationship entitled, Mindfulness of Intimacy-Improving our Loving Relationship. We have made great improvement in the field of technology over the years. Sadly, we have not made similar improvement in our well-being and loving relationship.
I hope to be able to embark on the Mindful Journey with you. Someone told me a very time ago that our journey begins with the first word we utter. Let the first word be one I have to say to you. Our journey does not end with the first word I have to say to you. It is just the beginning. Follow me. Let us ride not to the sunset of our loving relation, but to the sunrise. It is a new beginning. It is a long-term relationship of engaging with one another. Next, we can go further to the Mindful Retreat. Committed couples will go all the way out to save their almost broken relationship. I am only a vehicle rekindle your loving relationship. And let me be the one.
