Not so long ago I was silly enough to believe that our relationships are what make us whole. Certainly our relationships enable us to feel connected but others cannot make us whole – we have to do that for ourselves. The more we work on creating our own happiness, owning our power, enabling our dreams and developing our authentic values and passions, the more attractive we become and the more people treat us as the goddesses we truly are. Years ago I decided to stop looking to my husband “to make me happy” and started making myself happy. I stopped looking to others to give me love, I started loving myself. I stopped asking others to define my purpose; I started defining my own purpose. I was then able to enjoy the pleasures of the exceptional people I have in my life for who they are, not who I wanted them to be. And almost overnight as if by magic, my relationships were transformed.
