[RECAP] 12 Lessons on Love and Relationships

Openings give us a chance to peek in and see just a little.

At the last Behold.Her Portrait event titled “I Don’t Deserve my own Love Story,” openings happened. I led the conversation on LOVE and WORTHINESS, and I was blown away by the diversity in the room, and then by the similarities that openings reveal.

When we let our hearts speak, openings happen. I assure you that if you lean out just a little, you will notice that someone in your life or around you is peeking into your opening and wondering if he or she is welcomed, if they belong, and if they can safely bring their full self to the table.

I came to the conversation as a single woman, and my intention was to lead from my experience. The event was also right after Valentines Day, and given the topic, in my mind, I was expecting only my “people” in the room. However, a third of the room was married, another third was in a relationship or situation-ship, and the last third was single or divorced. I was also in awe of the judgment-free room, and that is the magic of a Behold.Her event. We laughed, cried, teased each other, bantered, and opened up.

I learned a lot, and here are 12 of the many things I took away from the night.

  • Love requires commitment and work whether you are single, dating, in a relationship or married.

There you have it! I’m placing these lessons in my forefront in this Beautiful Year of Bae! LOL
