Dispelling the Love Myths 3: Love Takes Time

If you are just tuning in, I’ve been writing for the last couple of days on the what I call The Love Myths.  These are so culturally ingrained, we don’t even realize that these beliefs are running our lives. If Love is  a choice we make, and NOT something we fall into, awareness of our underlying operating system is going to be a big help. Today’s principle Love is Not Time Bound, actually addresses a whole slew of myths. Do you believe any of the following?

Asheville Small Plate Crawl Experience 2014

Asheville is known for its great food, and especially for its local independent restaurants that feature a unique, eclectic variety of flavors that are far more sophisticated than may be expected in a small southern town.  What’s even more exciting than the food, perhaps, is that Asheville provides unique opportunities for locals and visitors to explore the culture and see what makes Asheville so special while having fun doing it.  The annual “small plate crawl” is one of those opportunities, and this year it did not disappoint.  Over 20 restaurants participated in this culinary tour, featuring special small-sized chef creations that highlight the essence of the restaurant and the Asheville food scene.

10 Years In, Who's Bad Going Stronger Than Ever, Spreading Michael Jackson's Music and Spirit Around the World

In 2014, Who’s Bad marks their 10th year performing as The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band. In that span, Who’s Bad has played more shows in more cities worldwide than any other tribute act related to the King of Pop.

Dispelling the Love Myths Week 2: Love is Expensive

I started this series to get people thinking about how much more love would be available if we practiced some simple principles and skills of loving. If you missed that post, you can read it here. Today’s myth? That Love is expensive.  We believe it's something we earn.  We have the idea that we must be good to be  loveable. Often, we shy away from love, because the price tag looks too high.  We have the idea that romantic love will require sacrifices of who we really are. And often it does. Who hasn’t kept themselves small, or kept their mouth shut, in order not to rock the boat? Who hasn’t withheld love when a lover, friend or child has failed to make the grade?

30 Days of Yoga: Days 1-10

"I wish winter would stay forever and ever," said no one ever, so what do you do to beat the winter blues? Well, you could hibernate, drink lots of hot chocolate, go somewhere tropical or look for something uplifting and inspiring; I chose the latter. After seeing all the pictures puppies and purritos (please google purritos) my heart could handle, I turned to TED Talks.

That February Day Men Dread

Perhaps we have Valentine's Day all backwards. And because we have it backwards, it makes us go sideways. And then we fall down. And we can’t get up.

Dispelling the Love Myths

It is our most pervasive myth. Love is something you fall into. You are going along your daily life and BOOM, there she was just a walking down the street! I saw him standing there, and I knew. Cue the soundtrack! We have come to believe in chemistry, and kismet, and that we fall in love, like it was a camouflaged hole that we stumbled upon. The problem with this theory is that we also fall out of love. And then there is all the disappointment, and fingerpointing, and ultimately, we amputate that person from our lives, because the love wasn’t perfect.
