The World's Most Popular Sentence

When you said it this morning, what did you really mean?

So much of our attention is on the L word: love longed for, love discovered, love gone wrong, gone crazy, gone away, rediscovered, laughed at and criticized. 


And the most repeated sentence of all time? 

"I love you" (to a romantic partner, sibling, parent-child or friend).


Problem: some say it when they want something, while others do it to hear it back; still others are really asking,"Are we okay?" 

Some have tossed "I love you" back and forth so often that it has long since lost all meaning. Even when things are not going well, still, it returns like an echo.


And believe it or not, there are those who only say it to express strong affection and caring.

If the 'I love you' in your relationship has been drained of life, or if it has come to mean something else, there are two ways to put the magic back.

Use it only to express warmth and caring.  For those who want to know if the relationship is okay, or if their partner still cares, take a deep breath and ask.


And for those who want to hear it back, again, start with a deep breath and ask.  Vulnerability, all by itself, can go a long way toward deepening a relationship.


The second way to ignite those 3 words?  Stop the echo.

Instead, when you hear that remarkable sentence, take a moment to take it in -- all the way in; and then take another moment to enjoy it.  Let it lift your heart.  Your life.

Oh, and be sure to let the other person know what you are doing before going silent, which brings us to this.


What happens when our own 'I love you' is met with silence; you know, when the other person is busy taking it in?  Some of us will be feeling (very?) uncomfortable, but that discomfort is just a feeling, a feeling that fades. 


And with a bit of persistence, you too can experience the miracle: that amazing sound of love as it surrounds the other person; and have the same experience as it surrounds you.


More Self-Love.  Anyone?

What a life!  Shoe lace breaks, sink backs up, car won’t start and so it goes—small irritants and big—roof leaks, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming. 

And then?  We  make ourselves wait to eat, wait to use the men/women's room and even put off doing what we were looking forward to.

It's true!  Way too many of us do these, and more. 



Because what we are doing is more important than

what we need.

                          A Life Made Easier

Every time we treat ourselves better, we feel better.  When we string some 'feel betters' together, life itself gets better, problems easier to handle.

And one, simple 9-word sentence can completely change the way you treat yourself.  A sentence that comes in this:

"A Life Better Than It Has Ever Been"

It's free

It's entertaining 

    (like the Love post above)

And it comes with continuing support

    Also free   


A gift for the one

In your life

Who needs you most
