We All Have A Sweetheart!

There is a saying going around that goes something like this:  On the day you were born your were given a sweetheart for the rest of your life.  Do you kow who it is?  It is yourself!

This sums up a profound truth.  Of course we are all hopeful and desirous of a special partner in our lives and many other people to love over a lifetime.  But the truth is we need to be able to nourish,nurture and enjoy ourselves.  If we don’t we will not be in condition for the adventures, efforts and commitments involved in joining up with others.  Also, if we don’t like ourselves, why would someone else like us?  Think about these things as you take more interest in recognizing your own special talents, interests, coping skills and untapped potential!  Have fun getting to know a very special person.
