Before each meal my little family says ‘thank you for this day, this food and _______’. It could be an A in chemistry for my daughter. Finding the lost wrench for my husband. Its little things – like forks, dirt roads, ice. We have to actually stop and consciously think about our answers. I have a neighbor with MS, so as I’m walking across the yard, I say thank you because I can walk across the yard. Thank you to the moon. Thank you to the breeze.The weeds that make the prettiest flowers. I’ve had the big house, the trips you need passports for. And I’m far happier in my little house with my little family. Thankful for all the little things that make life amazing.
Our monthly gratitude contest is well underway and we’ve picked our second winner! She’ll be receiving a free Love That Works giftset! You still have time to send in your entry. We would love to see it and you might even win! Until then, please read the wonderful winning entry for inspiration. And a warm shoutout to everyone who’s entered this week. Your gratitude warms our hearts!

There is no time like long summer nights to cultivate our uniquely, profoundly human capacity for pleasure, especially sexual pleasure. Our pleasure response transforms our relationship to each other and even to life itself. Focusing on pleasure not only changes how we see our opportunities for intimate connection, but also invites us into a deeper relationship with our erotic soul.

It becomes hard to trust your own thinking when nothing seems to be working. The space between how I thought it would go and how it is going seems to widen in front of my eyes. Maybe most difficult of all is how often the undesirable outcomes around us spill over into our relationships, both at home and at work. An errant comment too easily turns into an argument. I become blind to my impact on people around me, caught up in the unresolved problems surrounding me. During times like these, we often underestimate the power of the choices we make and how it can create a path back towards what’s working or down the slippery slope of self-destruction, which my husband affectionately calls “flirting with the gutter.”
Here is my short list to making it better when it isn’t working at all. Each one helps you do the next one, so start at the beginning and work your way down.
