THOUGHTS 3257 TO 3260

MY THOUGHTS 3257
EACH GENERATION MUST RE-EVALUATE THE PRECEPTS THAT ARE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.. MANY OF THOSE PRECEPTS MAY STILL BE VALID TO THE CURRENT GENERATION AND MANY PRECEPTS MAY NO LONGER BE VALID OR MAY NEED SOME MODIFICATIONS. THIS STORY WAS TOLD TO ME A LONG TIME AGO: A MAN WAS WATCHING HIS WIFE CUT OFF THE ENDS OF A ROAST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN THEIR OVEN. HE WAS PUZZLED BECAUSE THE OVEN WAS BIG ENOUGH FOR THE WHOLE ROAST. WHEN HE ASKED HIS WIFE WHY SHE CUT OFF THE ENDS OF THE ROAST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN THE OVEN, SHE RESPONDED THAT HER MOTHER HAS ALWAYS DONE THAT WAY. SO, HE ASKED HER MOTHER WHY SHE CUT OFF THE ENDS OF THE ROAST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN THE OVEN. SHE REPLIED THAT HER MOTHER HAS ALWAYS DONE IT THAT WAY. THEN, HE ASKED THE GRANDMOTHER WHY SHE HAD CUT OFF THE ENDS OF THE ROAST. SHE REVEALED THE SHE HAD A VERY SMALL OVEN AND THAT SHE CUT OFF THE ENDS OF THE ROAST TO MAKE IT FIT IN THE OVEN. REMEMBER THAT AT ONE TIME ALL TRADITIONS WERE VALID AND ‘SOME’ TRADITIONS DO NEED TO BE RE-EXAMINED. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3258
AS A PARTNER IN A RELATIONSHIP, YOU MAY LOOK TO OTHER RELATIONSHIPS TO SEE HOW THEIR INTERACTIONS WORK FOR THEM. EXAMINE THEIR INTERACTIONS TO SEE WHAT MAY WORK FOR YOU IN ORDER TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PARTNER. YOU MAY USE OTHER COUPLES’ BEHAVIORS AND TECHNIQUES AS LEARNING TOOLS FOR YOU; HOWEVER, REMEMBER THAT EACH RELATIONSHIP HAS DIFFERENT DYNAMICS THAN YOURS. YOU CANNOT CREATE A CARBON COPY OF THAT OTHER RELATIONSHIP, BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS SEEK TO IMPROVE YOURS BY OBSERVING OTHERS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3259
MARRIAGE IS THE BEGINNING A GREAT PHYSICAL, SPIRITUAL, AND EMOTIONAL ADVENTURE FOR ANY COUPLE IN THIS LIFE. THAT COUPLE MUST BE STRONG ENOUGH TO MEET THE CONSTANT CHALLENGES THAT THEY WILL MEET ON THEIR GREAT ADVENTURE ALL THEIR LIVES. THEY MUST FOCUS ON ‘THEIR’ NEEDS AND EXPECTATION AND LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES WHILE MAINTAINING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH EXTENDED FAMILIES. THEY NEED TO PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF CHILDREN AND THE PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL CHALLENGES OF OLD AGE. THIS REQUIRES A COOPERATIVE EFFORT BY BOTH PARTNERS. CHOSE YOU LIFE-MATE WELL.

MY THOUGHTS 3260
FOR THOSE WHO ARE PREPARING TO START A NEW RELATIONSHIP AFTER THE ENDING A FORMER RELATIONSHIP, BE SURE TO FINISH UP THE OLD ONE/ONES ‘COMPLETELY’ INCLUDING THE ISSUES THAT WERE CREATED IN THE FORMER RELATIONSHIP. IF YOU BRING THE GHOSTS OF THE FORMER RELATIONSHIP INTO THE NEW RELATIONSHIP, IT IS DOOMED TO FAILURE BY YOUR DESIGN. EmilKoval©2012
