{Champion One Another}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
I'm always looking for interesting relationship quotes and bits of advice to share in my writing. Here's something I thought you'd appreciate and could use...we all need reminders every now and then about opening our hearts just a wee bit more!

In his book, Nine Critical Mistakes Most Couples Make, Dr. David Hawkins, known as “The Relationship Doctor,” offers these ways that couples often misstep:
~ They talk sharply to one another.
~ They take one another for granted.
~ They make demands instead of requests.
~ They put each other down rather than offering praise.
~ They fail to get excited about each other's ideas.
~ They forget to champion one another.

So go be your partner's champion today! Be supportive, loving, forgiving, patient, attentive. And in the process, you will both win.... 

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
