People have a funny way of looking at relationships. Too many times we look at what the relationship gives us as opposed to what we give a relationship. In every relationship, there should be an element of give and take. While this interaction may not always be balanced, you should expect to be both a giver and a taker. In addition, your personal relationships can either uplift you in joy (sparkle) or bring your spirits down.
The people we really want in our lives are the ones that make US sparkle. Seldom is this relationship one sided, in fact, if you have someone who helps you sparkle, you share that same light, love and joy with them. A sparkling relationship is much easier to maintain and grow than a more difficult relationship. The ease and grace of the giving and taking involve you doing what you feel is best for both your significant other and the relationship. Many people give begrudgingly, out expectation, societal demands or family pressure. In a true “sparkling” relationship, you give for the sheer joy of giving. YOU want someone who will give to you with that same spirit of joy.
It is the ultimate in a win/win relationship. The more love we each bring into our worlds, the more love there is to share with others. The more love we share with others, the more love there is on the planet. The more love on the planet, the more people will awaken to the truth that we are indeed all connected, that we all matter, that every person is important.
Seek out that person who makes you sparkle. And make sure you, in turn are sharing your sparkle with others. When you can find a member of the opposite sex who brings out YOUR sparkle, that person is a keeper. No need to worry if there will be a relationship. Enjoy the friendship, first- the rest may come later.
A light under a bushel cannot shine. Now is your time to SPARKLE!
