What Puts Power in the Power Couple

Grandma always said: Be beautiful at the window, be an angel in the kitchen and a devil in the bedroom. 

Love, trust, understanding and communication are the common denominators for a good relationship, whether you are companions or dating long-term and contemplating the big step.

The Power Couple is the highest level-relationship. They do have their ups and downs, but quickly resolved and never disclosed in public.

The power couple is admired and envied. They always seem to be in sync and display compatibly wherever they go. This is not a fairy tale relationship by any means but the ingredients are different.

How It begins
Most people marry their high school or college sweetheart or, they go separate ways after school for whatever reason – they might marry – then either divorce or become widowed. Then it comes into play at the High School Class/College Reunion. They meet once again, catch up and discover they are both in the “same place” and ready to rekindle that old flame.  

The power couple are also soulmates, which is a rare commodity nowadays. What makes the Power Couple stand out from the rest? Despite their respective heavy work schedule, they also find time to be together and enjoy quality time. The power couple actually miss each when apart; whereby the average married spouse looks forward to alone time away from him/her to reconnect with their sanity.

The power in the power coupe is living a dog’s life. Yes, I know what you are thinking. A dog’s life – that’s sucks. No, it doesn’t and here how it works.

A dog cannot see color, they only see you and see you for the first time every time. Man’s best friend’s love is unconditional. They crave love in return. Dogs also know when you’ve had a bad day and they are there to sooth your fevered brow.

The power couple also see each other for the first time every time – like a first date, that first kiss – the good morning or good night, I love you. They hate being separated for any length of time whether it be work-related or otherwise.

The power couple represent the adage – “love is an itching of the heart that can’t be scratched”

Baby Boomers are the best examples. I had the pleasure and privilege of attending a dance event where the host, a retired attorney, felt the need to share that he missed his bride of 50 years, who was out of town for a few days on business. This touched my heart and I could see they were a power couple.

The power they possess as a couple and as individuals, is that they set amazing examples and are the role models in today’s society that thrives on negativity.  The power couple is amazing with giving advice and positive energy since they speak only of what makes a good marriage and keeping it balanced. Remember the soap opera, Days of Our Lives – Alice and Tom Horton, Hope and Bo Brady. Both power couples. While soap operas are so-called fiction, each episode sends its own message.

The power in the power couple translates into – how well do you know your mate, his/her body language; learning to compromise without sacrifice. Learning to accept/tolerate his/her shortcomings, along with the good stuff and knowing when to console or stand back. 

Shouting gets you nowhere but airing and sharing helps resolve most issues. Need that release from stress or frustation, go into the basement and use the punching bag. 

Life is not perfect. Marriage Is a work in progress; must be nourished on a daily basis and both partners must give 100% to sculpt it into what it should be.

If yours was love at first sight or reunited with that special someone, you might already be that power couple.

Hear My Roar!

There is nothing in this life that cannot be fixed or, resolved;hence, life consists of situations, not problems. Like grandma used to say“there’s a lid for every pot”.

Whether it is parenting, enjoying a relationship or, trying to advance in the workplace, the key ingredients are patience, persistence and pursuit.

Patience:Stand back and view the entire picture.
Persistence: Tool of determination. Stay positive. Let nothing and no one deter you from moving forward.

Pursuit:  Aim high until you achieve that dream/goal.

What you would realize later in life that you live in a negative society that thrives on obstacles that hold you down and hold you back.

The Early Years
From toddler to adolescence, your mind was pretty much on what you wanted to be when you grow up. Family and friends mused over your vivid imagination. You were a child and had no voice of your own.

During the scholastic years, your classmates and teachers (professors) were actually supportive in your goals and what you hoped t…

Before and After Cataract Surgery

Vision is a precious commodity. God gave us one pair of eyes and we need to take good care of them since we cannot navigate without them.
When our vision is blurry, the lens in our eyes get cloudy; hence, cataracts begin to form and need to be removed at some point. 
While cataracts are more dominant in older people or as I prefer to say “aging teenagers”, people in their 40’s and 50’s also have cataract surgery.
I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. My vision was blurry. I also had a damaged optic nerve, plus borderline glaucoma since my eye pressure was 28 and the accepted pressure is 16 or lower.
Before Cataract Surgery You will be given an eye exam by your ophthalmologist and measured for lens.
You will be given a date for the surgery and three weeks prior to the cataract surgery, the ophthalmologist or, as I (old school) prefer to say eye-doctor sends Presurgical paperwork to your physician for specific blood work. An EKG is also required.
You will receive a call from the h…

Why Marrying Your Best Friend could be a Mistake

Each of us has that one special someone we have known for most of our life and to whom we can bear our soul without being judged or betrayed. They are our support system 24/ in good times and in not so good times. They are that one positive, constant we depen -->d on to keep us honest and grounded.
Soulmate and best friend are entirely different. A soulmate is someone who encourages us and helps us grow on all three levels – personally, socially and professionally.
We share secrets with our best friend and other stuff we could never share with a family member, other friends or acquaintance; so why is it a huge mistake to fall in love with and marry our best friend?
A best friend means just “that” / someone we turn to for rescue or advice when life’s ocean creates too many ripples and we feel ourselves drowning.

When we marry our best friend, life changes but not always for the better. That person actually stops being our best friend since marriage takes on a different hue and role. M…
