A Co-Committed Relationship from goop

I want to thank again my Guest bloggers- Kelly Pugliano from  and Andrea from who so kindly allowed us to peek into their lives as their share their sweet A~Ha moments.  They surely made the month of love even sweeter over here :-D

I subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow blog- Goop. It is one of the few blogs that I do subscribe to.

And I usually enjoy her newsletters.
She is actually one of my favourite female idols.
Working mom who in her 'middle age' added two new careers (singing and authoring)  to her portfolio how cool is that.
So why am I sharing this you must be wondering.. well this week's post is so interesting and relevant to what I think and say here that I had to share it.
Here is an excerpt from the post that intrigued me- 
 Commitment and re-commitment: "Lasting relationships use whole-hearted commitment as a place to come home to and to steer the relationship. Commitment locates you on your relationship map so you can move from where you are to where you want to be. Recommitting when you mess up is the key, and recommitting to reveal your true self and your true feelings is the crux of it. For example, committing to reveal gains real traction when, in the moment of noticing that you’re concealing anger, you take a breath, recommit to revealing, and share the experience of being angry. What doesn’t work is concealing, noticing the concealing, blaming yourself for concealing, feeling like a failure, noticing that your partner conceals too and jumping on the blame merry-go-round."

I also am partial to this
 "A conscious relationship is one in which people are awake to themselves, their feelings and thoughts, and are open to the flow of love and attention with one another. In a conscious relationship you can be completely yourself and completely connected. In a co-dependent relationship you have two halves trying to become whole: one person who doesn't love him/herself trying to get the other person to love them anyway. In a conscious relationship, both people know they're whole in themselves; they know they don't 'need' the other person to complete them. In a conscious relationship, it’s about two people celebrating together, not trying to get something from the other."

Hope you enjoy it and you gain some insight.
I know I did.
Have a great weekend!


  1. Those are good points. I think these concepts get lost for a lot of people. And need to be revisited. Marriage and sense of self are an ever changing beast.
