Balance Tip O' The Week - Talk with each other

On the heels of Valentine's Day I found this Balance Tip that works in personal relationships all year long! It picks up where roses, champagne and shared bubble baths leave off ;0)

Talk with each other.
It can’t be said enough: communication is essential in healthy relationships! It means—Take the time. Really be there.
  • Genuinely listen. Don’t plan what to say next while you’re trying to listen. Don’t interrupt. This is not always easy for the Italian, but advice worth heeding.
  • Listen with your ears and your heart. Sometimes people have emotional messages to share and weave it into their words. If you are married to a man, you will completely understand this simple piece of advice.
  • Ask questions. Ask if you think you may have missed the point. Ask for opinions. Show your interest. Open the communication door.
  • Share information. Studies show that sharing information especially helps relationships begin and nurtures them to grow. It's like fertilizer for getting closer and more connected.
Presto, like magic! You are on your way to a deeper, intimate and well-balanced realtionship!

My poor, sweet, clueless husband.....the other night I was talking to him when he opened the fridge and said "can we throw this out?" I said.....excuse me, did you notice my lips moving???

We do communicate about the important stuff! :)

Hi sweet friend! Thanks for stopping by. I've got a lot going on so my blog visits have been waaaay down. I woke early this morning so I thought I'd get a little blogging in while I drink my coffee. lol
Great post...I always say communication is KEY to every relationship.
