When was the last time you truly felt like YOU? The you that feels whole, happy, and confident.

Have you found yourself wondering, “What is the secret to a long, healthy marriage?”
In this interview, Carol shares the top 3 relationship success tips that she’s learned throughout her 33-years of marriage.
3 Relationship Success Tips for a Long, Happy Marriage:
Carol attributes her relationship success in part to gratitude.
Every relationship has its issues; you can choose to get hung up on the little ways that your partner gets under your skin, or you can overlook the little inconveniences and focus instead on all the great things you are thankful for. When you find yourself getting annoyed with your partner, ask yourself, “Is getting upset over this going to help either of us? Does it matter in the big scheme of the relationship?” It’s a common problem in relationships to forget the greatness in one another. Expressing your gratitude for your partner can make a world of difference for both of you.
2. Think before you speak.
Another one of Carol’s relationship success tips is to stop and think before you say something. This pause is important because it allows you to think about how your thoughts will impact others if you tell them. You don’t have just to let things go, but when you do speak about a difficult subject, make sure you think about the other person as much as yourself.
The third secret to Carol’s healthy marriage is communication. If you don’t speak from a place of love and gratitude, your ability to express yourself and solve problems will be limited. It’s also useful to remember that you’re not always going to get everything you want in any relationship. Embrace compromise even when your point of view differs from your partner’s.
A long and healthy marriage like Carol’s takes patience and love to be sustainable. Take these relationship success tips that Carol has shared and bring them into your relationship. A partnership built on love is truly a miracle.
What is the number one key to a healthy and happy relationship?
Having patience and approaching problems with compassion and gentleness is crucial to being a loving partner.
If you think you can’t be any more patient than you already are, then this message is for you.
Last year, when I was moving, I rushed through my packing and did not pack as well as I could have. I grabbed all my necklaces and stuffed them into a bag. When the time came to unpack, I pulled out the necklaces to find a big tangled mess. I needed to gently and patiently work through all of those little knots and tangles with care.
The same goes for relationships. To sort through relationship complications, you need the same three characteristics: gentleness, care, and patience.
Developing patience will set you up for relationship success. Next time your relationship hits a snag, you can step back, slow down, and figure out how to move forward with love.
Have you ever suffered a betrayal and felt like your whole world is falling apart?
Have you found yourself wondering, “what am I going to do now?”
I know how you feel. I’ve been there.
After my husband cheated, I missed out on years of happiness and balance because I didn’t know how to deal with betrayal.
Until I did…
When I figured out how to deal with betrayal, my life turned around for the better. I felt joy, peace, and courage again. I felt optimistic for my future, peace in my present, and was finally able to trust again.
These tools that helped me get through, have also helped the hundreds of women who I have worked with over the last ten years. Women just like you.

Is there someone in your life who has wronged you and you just can’t let it go? Is it weighing you down?
If you can relate, believe me, you are not alone!!! Resentment is such a common culprit for many of my clients – stirring up negative feelings and emotions, such as anger, as we re-live and dwell on past injuries.
When we carry around this baggage, it drains us of our energy and attention and ability to form those deeply loving bonds we crave.
Do you want to know the solution?
It may not be what you want to hear, but I guarantee it will help you feel more peaceful and whole.
Here it is…forgiveness…that’s the answer. Learning how to forgive is not only good for other people; it’s good for your soul too. When you forgive, you allow yourself the opportunity to cultivate compassion, which enables you to transform your toxic thoughts into a state of love. By being more compassionate toward others, you will feel lighter, happier, and more full of life.
Forgiveness isn’t about letting the other person off the hook; it’s not saying that whatever they did to you is okay. It’s about detaching emotionally from what happened.
When someone wrongs you, it creates resentment and anger inside. And when you’re unable to learn how to forgive, it has a tremendous effect on your health.
While there’s a pandemic going on outside your body, there’s a health crisis inside of you as well. This inner crisis results from toxic thoughts and emotions. You can avert the crisis by shifting your perspective. By allowing negative emotions to soften, you can make way for compassion. In this state, you’ll feel amazing.
In the video below you will learn a 5 step process to cultivate compassion. When you understand how to forgive, you unlock a whole new way of being and are able to live a life that is grounded in love. Are you in? Let’s get started!!!
5 Things You Can Do to Cultivate Compassion:
1. Write out what is upsetting you. Let yourself feel the full force of whatever it is you’re experiencing
2. Ask yourself what you’re gaining by holding onto that emotion.
3. Ask yourself who you would be without that emotion.
4. Take action.
5. Imagine the other person as the light that they are.
When you learn how to forgive, you unlock a whole new way of being. Start to cultivate compassion in yourself, and you’ll be able to live a life of love.

Are you facing a tough situation in your life?
Do you sense the need to make a major decision?
How do you feel about this decision? Are you clear about it? Or are you a bit muddy?
Maybe the people around you, although well-meaning, are trying to tell you what to do and that’s making you feel all the more confused and stuck.
If you have a question that is weighing heavy on your heart you’ll want to watch this video. It will give you an amazing and clear-cut way to find the answers to those tough questions and situations.
You’ll learn a powerful step-by-step process showing you how to tap into your heart to get unstuck and move forward. The last step of this process will give you the exact question to ask to get clear.
When we are experiencing trouble in our relationship, it can feel like our world is crumbling along with our relationship. Our relationship issues take a front-row spot in the presence of our minds, consuming our thoughts and causing anxiety, stress, sadness, anger, and a host of unpleasant emotions.
If you are experiencing this, I feel you, I have been there myself, and I would love nothing more than to help you move through this difficult time.
So, I want to share three tips to help you find balance and peace so you can keep moving forward.
1. First, acknowledge that everything has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Every event in history, good or bad, has followed this sequence. While you are in the middle of your relationship crisis, it might be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I promise you that it does exist. Just as with everything else, your crisis will come to an end; you will not be stuck here forever.
2. Second, ask yourself, “Who do I want to be in the midst of this story?” In the future, when you reflect on how you showed up in the middle, what would you like to see? How will you have to show up right now to make your future self proud?
3. Last but not least, know that adversity helps us grow and blossom into a better and stronger version of ourselves. Adversity is an inescapable fact of life. Even a tree must endure the constant battles of the wind. But each seed of adversity has its silver lining. As the tree battles with the wind, its roots grow stronger and deeper below the surface, enabling the tree to support itself as it grows taller and taller. Without the adversity of the wind, the tree would eventually grow too tall for its shallow roots and would topple over. With every adversity that you face, there is a benefit. Start getting curious about the good that will come out of the challenges you face? Trust God and lean into His greater plan.
I believe in you. Not only can you make it through this, but you will arrive on the other side as a grander and more magnificent YOU.

Would you love to feel more loved in your relationship?
Do you spend your days feeling disconnected and empty reminiscing about the deep and happy connection you once had together?
Then you might be able to relate to my client, Sally.
Sally was in a challenging relationship with her husband. It seemed as though all the love they once shared was just a figment of the past. Her husband slept in another room and would barely even look at her. I encouraged Sally to switch her focus from the love she wanted to receive to the love she could give. So she began finding ways to show her love by doing small, kind things for her husband, such as making his lunch in the morning and including his favorite snacks. To her delight, his attitude toward her changed dramatically. He began looking her in the eyes and showing his genuine appreciation for her. They experienced more of a connection with that small act of caring than they had in months.
How can you adapt this strategy to transform your relationship?
When we are faced with difficulties in our relationships, it is so easy and common to focus on what our partner is doing or not doing. I have to admit when I was married I fell into that trap but it is a dead-end – you can never control someone else – your point of power is within.
Einstein said you can never solve a problem at the conscious level it was created -you have to rise above it.
So are you up for an experiment? What if you chose to focus on what you can control: your own actions. If you want more love in your relationship, then GIVE more love.
Stop waiting for him to go first and be the bigger person, just like Sally.
Express your love more often, and watch your relationship transform and grow into one that is healthier, happier, and more loving for both of you.
Is there a relationship in your life that has you feeling let down or unhappy? Does someone’s beliefs, behaviors, or patterns of interaction leave you broken-hearted?
Relationships can be tough. At one point or another, we’ve all experienced tense situations that trigger us. We can either react out of anger/hurt/fear or respond with love in these difficult times. Reacting often leads to more hurt without ever addressing the root of the problem. When you respond with love, you work towards healing.
I’m not saying it’s always easy but what I’m about to share IS easy and kinda miraculous.
I have a 4-word magic tool to give you that personally helped me transform one of the most important relationships in my life – it will help you too! It has the ability to shift you out of the habits that are hurting you and embrace a loving perspective.
Before reacting or responding, ask yourself:
When you ask yourself this question, you:
💖 Gain a whole new perspective
💖 Show up in a more loving way.
💖 You get better outcomes and create happier situations.
These four words can help you to improve your relationships with your partner, family, friends, parents, children, coworkers, and even yourself!

Responding with love is the best way to nurture your relationships with others and yourself.
