I wrote in the last issue about feeling like we are embarking in a New Era. Feels more and more like that every day. Im so excited thinking on the fact that we are starting a whole new decade. We are at the beginning of a new huge chunk of time. It makes me dizzy to think about what this means. To step back and think of what Id like to create in the next 10 years of my Human Experience Looking at this New Beginning this way is humbling, and so super Inspiring. Have you pondered similarly?

Todays topic of Co-Creating the Life we Desire is part of the last element, Element5, in our Sequence for better implementing the Successful Couple Strategy:
Element1 Context & Mindset
Element2 Communication & Alignment
Element3 Clarity & Dynamics
Element4 Connection & Intimacy
Element5 Collaboration & Partnership
The Elements are fundamental and powerful in and of themselves, but this is the one where the changes being made become the most apparent, where they manifest in a variety of ways Collaboration and Partnership are key for a thriving relationship. A relationship that is not only amazing in its own right, but creates a rippling Impact
The state of our relationship allows the creation of our magnificent Life Time and again in Visiting with couples it is obvious that they are stagnant, even struggling, in their life because the partners are getting in their own way and they havent figured out how to tap into the inherent synergy of the relationship This is addressed through the prior Elements.
It is very challenging, a white-knuckling endeavor really, doing Life without having more fully figured out and addressed ourselves, and how we fit with our Partner Once this piece of the puzzle fits, the rest of the puzzle just comes together beautifully with ease Then focusing on creating our Masterpiece flows naturally and becomes the joyful endeavor its supposed to be.
Creating our Masterpiece has to do with Intentionally creating the life we desire. We get to Dream, Design, Develop and Display our ever-evolving Creation, throughout our Human Experience. This is where Living our life by Design requires Co-Creation. For we do not live in a vacuum, we live in relationship(s). And, that impacts and influences the quilt of our life
Creating our Masterpiece also has to do with inviting, allowing and abiding by Inspiration. It is about having Vision, and not merely having an idea of what we want and setting goals to achieve it It is grander and more meaningful than that. This is where we connect with our Why. Where we bring in Purpose. Where life makes sense. It has to do with having Inspired Intentionality at the heart of creating the life we desire
It has to do with deciding, owning, who we truly are and are becoming more every day. It has to do with setting up our life to allow and promote this development. It has to do with deciding who we are as a couple, as a partnership. It has to do with defining our Personal and Couple Brand It has to do with living authentically and honoring ourselves and our partnership.
Our Masterpiece is a weaving together of the Partners contributions, gifts, Essence. It is our responsibility to crack the code for a seamlessly weaving experience. So we do get to create a gorgeous and magnificent Masterpiece. We dont want to end up with a mediocre masterpiece at the end of the day, for that would have been a wasted Human Experience We want our Masterpiece to be our Legacy
If all this sounds too grand to you, its time to wake up to your Life! Its time to embrace what you signed-up for Make this life the best it can be. Make your life a world-class life.
