TO – 02/14 – Valentine’s Day… relationships…

Relationships actually make life special.
I believe that at the end of the day relationships and connecting with others is what life is mainly about. It is about the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others.

The desire, of course, is to have relationships that are built on love and understanding, regardless of differences of opinion, judgment, belief systems, cultures, distance, earning potential.

However, relationships can be extremely challenging. It is true that no matter how committed, relationships go through tough periods and if not managed correctly, relationships can and do fold under the pressures of daily life.

At times we may wonder if it really is possible to build and maintain real, true, solid, and happy, joyous and very successful relationships with family, friends, romantic partners and colleagues.

In relationships we experience the full spectrum of feelings and emotions that exist such as love, hate, anger, elation, loneliness, frustration, fear, jealousy, lust, infatuation, adorations and others. Some of these feelings and emotions can be destructive and very painful, but I believe that if relationships are built on values such as trust, unconditional love, and commitment, they can survive and overcome many obstacles and come out on the other side looking glossier, richer and more beautiful than ever.

To make relationships work we need to be aware of our own personal expectations as well as those of the other person and of the relationship involved.
These needs should be made clear in an effort to avoid misunderstanding, and more.

“However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the "right" person, because he or she is the mirror of who you are inside.”
~ ~ Deepak Chopra

We haven’t great plans for today. We’re planning on eating in (making comfort food for dinner), because the restaurants are just too crazy on this holiday with sooooooo many people and no places.
It seems our weather is a bit crazy. One day of rain one day of sun…

I wish you all have/had a Happy and Fabulous Valentine’s Day!

  9. ...Me and my boy don't celebrate this day (but only because he's subversive and anticonformist, so...he's so strange). I think that sentiments show day by day... but i will receive a red rose at least =))). Your words are right and true... relationships and sentiments are wonderful but difficul at the same time!

    The place in the pictures is amazing and you're wonderful <3

    Luv Luv and i hope that your v day was delicious and rich of love!!!

    Kiss darling (and sorry for my mistakes in this comment!!!)

  10. Happy Valentine beautiful!

  12. Hey Seeker!!!! I hope u have had a beautiful Valentine's Day my friend. I really love your post today. I agree with everything u said about relationships. With love, and a relationship, comes responsibility, I think a lot of people don't realize that sometimes.
    And the Chopra quote is so very true!!!
    Your outfit is gorgeous as ever girl!!! :) take care my sweet friend,

  13. Hey beautiful!
    Happy Valentine's day to you and your hubby! :) I hope you guys had a great one! :))))
    I wish you lots of love in your life, especially love for thyself, becuase just like you mentioned in your post, it's the relationship that we have with ourselves that counts the most!


  14. Happy Vday <333 Yknw I love you :) Great scarf!

  15. Hi there-such a lovely post, hope you had a nice valentines day too! Your outfit is just lovely, so casual chic!

  16. You're right. Our life would be meaning less without relationships. I love other people.
    And when something goes wrong in a relationship, you mustn't give up at once! You have to work on it and overcome the crises!
    Deepak Chopra.. Have you ever heard some of his music? I like his song "Oceans Of Ecstasy".
    Beautiful photos by the water!!

  17. I know I'm too late but: Happy Valentines day :).

    You look great as always and I love the background of your pictures.

  18. Thank you so much for the insight. It's strange because my friends that are single are always like, "I am so jealous you have a bf." But relationships are hard work! Depok Chopra is right. In Four Agreements by Miguel Ruez, he says that you have to pick up your own 'trash' you can't wait for a partner to do this. You in turn cannot pick up someone's 'trash'.

  19. amazing post. i love reading your special thoughts and you are alwys so right! I think it's especially bad when a realtionship ends becuase of the hard work. It's crazy how many feelings you can have in a relationship. I never thought of it before!

    and you look so great in this jeans. and wonderful combo of yelloe and purple.


  20. This outfit is super hot. Super sexy!!!!

  21. Obrigada, querida !
    Agora que encontaste o verdadeiro amor da tua vida, guarda-no como um tesouro !
    Muitos anos de felicidades para os dois !

    Merci de tes mots en français !!

    Bisous verts
