End of Year Reflection for Relationships: Envision a Shared Future

The turn of the year is a beautiful time for reflection. 

Having an annual pause for reflection helps us identify where we want to grow and how we want to change in the coming year.  

We reflect on our year and set personal resolutions for a better year to come.

Yet few of us use this awareness review and renew with our partner.  Give your love the attention it deserves, start a new awareness practice this season.

"What I like most about change is that it’s a synonym for ‘hope.’ If you're taking a risk, what you're really saying is, ‘I believe in tomorrow and I will be part of it'"

- LINDA ELLERBEE

One of the most critical differences in couples who move forward together and those who don't make it is their ability to cultivate and nourish a shared vision of the future.  

Those who tend their visions together like a garden- (diligently, gently, and frequently) are far more likely to move toward and fulfill shared aspirations.

Every great garden starts with a clear vision.  From that vision, we can create and follow a plan- together.

Today we cultivate that shared vision.  

Once again, give yourself time to sit on your own and reflect on these and write out your responses.  Use the power of your written words to cultivate new meaning together. Check in and share with your partner only after you've had time to really get clear on your own. 

Visioning is intended to be inspirational and aspirational only.  Let your creative dreams flow together.  

With each response, your sweetie shares notice your inner responses and try to ask for more information.  Often we feel pulled to critique and problem-solve when visioning.  If you feel pulled to either set those thoughts aside for a future conversation.

This shared visioning process is some of the most rewarding work I do with couples.  I'd love to share it with you!  Give me a call if you want to deepen this conversation.

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance."  

- ALAN WATTS

You're at a transition point together, looking forward to a new year, and looking back at the past.  

Over the last two days, we've reviewed many of the strengths you share and areas for growth in your partnership.  You're ready to grow.

But before we can move forward, like the leaves in fall, we must release and let go for a wintry transition.  Use today's guide to help you tie up loose ends and resolve necessary resentments as you move on to a bright and shiny new year.

Once again, give yourself time to sit on your own and reflect on these and write out your responses.  Use the power of your written words to cultivate new meaning together.

Check in and share with your partner only after you've had time to really get clear on your own.  Then for each response, they give notice your inner responses and try to ask for more information.  Notice what shows up for you, but try to stay open to what they have to share.  

Today's work requires openness and accountability of both of you.  But this is essential to moving forward into that bright new year.

Getting the Love You Want in Relationships: Clear Requests & Meaningful Support

One of the biggest complaints new clients come to me with is a need for more support in their relationship.  Most folks tell me they've asked and asked (maybe a thousand times) for support but just don't feel like they're getting it.  

Usually, when we talk with their partner the other side of the story includes just as many attempts at support as requests.  And on their side, these attempts are as overlooked or missed as the initial requests.  

So how do you meet in the middle?  It can help to shift the conversation by getting specific right from the beginning. While you might think you're being clear in asking for more support or telling them you feel unsupported, getting more clear will help them learn to meet your needs.

In sessions, we work to identify what meaningful support looks like to each partner- and often in each situation.  For those of you who can't make it in, I've outlined key themes in support and given examples of each on this worksheet to help you in identifying your unique support needs.  

With greater awareness and specificity you can make clear requests and your partner can more easily work to meet you where you need them most.  

Start by asking yourself, what would meaningful support look like in this situation?  What specific behaviors would help before, during, and after the situation I'm working on?  If you need inspiration download this guide for help.  

I hope this framework can help you get clearer about what you need from your sweetie- and can help them better meet you.  Let me know if you'd like my support in this conversation, I'm here for you.
