Lovers Kiss-And-Make-Up to Reignite the Spark!

August 26 is Kiss-And-Make-Up Day in the US. Couples in Trouble all over the world can get out of trouble fast—Kiss-And-Make-Up with my free Guide “3 Fast + Fun Ways to Reignite the Spark in Your Marriage TODAY,” plus “The 6-Point Plan to Create Romance and Intimacy.”

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Staying happy in a relationship and loving for years and years can be tricky at best. Men and women get sucked into the logistical ruts they know as their lives as husbands, wives, life partners, and taxi services to kids.

That’s why Couples in Trouble Relationship Expert, Dr. Jackie Black, offers her “3 Fast + Fun Ways to Reignite the Spark in Your Marriage TODAY” Guide as a free download.

“This is a much better path to happiness, and a far less costly approach, than the ‘conscious uncoupling’ making headlines by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin,” Dr. Jackie says. “Let’s face it, the path to love’s bloom can take a sharp detour from happily ever after to dread because of bills, dirty laundry, and competing needs and priorities.”

To head off this potential collision and to transform from the day-to-day rut of family living to rediscover the spark of appreciation that brought partners together at the start, Dr. Jackie offers these practical strategies and timeless tips. Read More…

Kiss-And-Make-Up! Couples in Trouble will learn to:

1: Create Intimacy with Deliberate Choices and Actions
2: Make Time to Connect
3: Create Romance and Time for Sex

Head over to today for a free download of my Guide “3 Fast + Fun Ways to Reignite the Spark in Your Marriage TODAY” plus “The 6-Point Plan to Create Romance and Intimacy.”

Please feel free to share this with friends and family who need a little “Spark” in their marriage. I would love to hear your comments and opinions; so either post a comment or, on a personal level, contact me at

Remember, only YOU can make it happen!

You Take Your Values With You Everywhere!

Where did you get your needs and values?

We all have many needs and values, but everyone is different and your values may be different to those of other people around you. That doesn’t make them wrong, just different. Most of our needs and values are acquired as we grow up and reflect those of the people closest to us during that period. However, our experiences also form strong values as we make judgments about what is important to us.

When you form a relationship, the compatibility of your needs and values will contribute to the strength of that relationship. The plain fact is that we all have needs, and our needs are legitimate. The problem, though, is that many of us may confuse the concept of neediness, something very different, with having real and legitimate needs that can be reasonably met!

There may be occasions during your relationship when you hurt your Honey’s feelings or she or he hurts your feelings. There may be those rare times that your beloved does or says something that shakes your trust, or you do or say something that shakes his or her trust. Those times may seem like the end of your relationship. You might fear that nothing can be said or done to repair the damage. Repairing the hurt is possible if you are both willing to work it out!

When you are hurt do you try to hurt your partner back? Do you hold a grudge? Do you reject your partner’s effort(s) to apologize and make up? Sometimes partners don’t have good tools and skills and don’t use their words effectively in emotionally charged situations.

While acting out against your partner may feel good in the moment, it really only serves to make the situation worse in the long run. Acting out creates more hurt feelings and makes it harder for both partners to work through the original hurt.

Tell the Stories of Your Life

Did you know that most of us are naturally predisposed to hear, remember, and tell stories?

And our stories have themes: family history, births, deaths, education, food and recipes, grandparents, journeys, romance, military (war) stories and many more.

So where does one begin to tell one’s stories or start writing them down?

How does one start to review a long and often multi-faceted life? What things are important to include? What events and experiences can be omitted?

The first step…

…is to identify your goal. Don’t be limited by the themes I just mentioned. Storytelling is fun, creative, healing, transforming, connecting, and anything else it becomes for you, the storyteller!

Storytelling is the way you can make sense out of events, experiences and relationships, observe how people interacted, or didn’t, and deepen your understanding of who you are and perhaps why you think, or believe or react the way you do.

Storytelling can be a way to provide a presence and guidance to children when a parent is terminally ill and won’t live to see his or her children through the milestones of life. It is a fun and engaging way to bring back to life, if you will, relatives that have long since died and weave a tapestry of family history that connects children to their heritage.

The second step…
