You may not know it, but you just made a pretty awesome decision.
Clearly you two are smart cookies, investing in your relationship like this. Yes, I’m aware that one of you may have had to do some serious talking to get her to join you on this adventure into the world of relationship fitness and improvement. If she’s like most, though, she’ll be thanking you when it’s over. Just sayin’.
So many people get it backward, they think that attending workshops like this are for couples who are broken, but between you and me, it is the couples who attend these workshops that are usually the strongest. Sure, maybe some things aren’t the way you want them to be, and maybe you are even questioning whether or not you want to stay together. Or, perhaps you are considering marriage and you want to be sure you’re really, really ready for this commitment. It doesn’t matter what your motivation is, you are the kind of people who are willing to take a look at your relationship, challenge your current ways of thinking about it, and you are open to new information and perspectives that can help move you forward in your life so that you can experience the joyful aliveness, and feeling of safety and connection that we all wish to feel.
Sometime in the week before the workshop, look for an email from me, with helpful information about preparing for the weekend, as well as some pre-workshop homework. If you are traveling from out of town, there are many hotels within 15 minutes of the workshop location. In fact, my office is just 15 minutes from the Indianapolis International Airport, too – so finding a place to stay will not be difficult.
If you have any questions for me, please do not hesitate to ask. Email will get you the speediest of replies, or you can text me at 317.517.0065. (Just let me know who you are if you text me).
I am looking forward to meeting you both, and learning more about your love story and helping you find ways to add future chapters to your love story that will bring you to life and make you feel full of love, gratitude and appreciation, make you laugh, and leave you longing for me.
Cheers to love and happiness!
