Harmony. Diversity. Appreciation

I love May's theme...

Harmony ~ Diversity ~ Appreciation

May is a month to appreciate the harmoney you and your partner enjoy despite your diversity as individuals. Harmony and diversity are neccesary ingrediants for the sucess iof any long-term relationship.

So often we enter into a relationship attracted by those things that make us different, and soon we are bent upon changing one another, We can easily fall into the trap of resenting, resisiting, and ultimately rejecting each othere's differences: men expect women to think and react like men, and women expect men to feel and behave like women. 

Real love, though, is unconditional. It does not demand but affirms and values. Despite the fact that you differ, as all men and women do, you also share and cherish many common goals. Family, work, religion, politics, money, character, recreation, sex - all the calues that resonate inside you - are among the things that create the harmony you snese between you and your partner. 

Rob and I are 'chalk and cheese' we are 'salt and sugar' we are 'apples and oranges' We knew from the start that we had many differences and had a lot to over come to be together. We are total opposites. But we could not deny our hearts. I wouldn't have it any other way! Yes we get into 'heated words' over silly things but our differences have in return brought out the best in each other and we have pushed each other to open our eyes and our hearts to a world which ordinarily we would have turned the other way. How boring would our lives be if we were exactly the same! Yes we are different but realiseing, accepting and working with these differences - that's our secret to success!!
