We Almost Didn’t Make It

We Almost Didn’t Make It

We almost didn’t make it. 10 years together, married 5 years TODAY at the San Diego courthouse (then 2 months later with family and friends) And…yup… we almost didn’t make it. So many ups and downs but WOW, so worth the journey!

I am more in love with my husband today than the day I said “I do”

What didn’t work for us:

  • Needing to be “right”
  • Putting work before each other
  • Forgetting what we love about each other
  • Blaming
  • Talking to others about our blame.
  • Expecting the other to “change”
  • Wanting to quit when it got hard

What worked:

  • Choosing LOVE
  • Patience
  • Meaning our commitment
  • Working on ourselves and taking personal responsibility
  • Lots and lots and LOTS of personal development.
  • Loving ourselves
  • Listening
  • Letting the unimportant things go
  • Remembering our intentions
  • Working THROUGH things
  • Creating space to truly be with each other.


Men if you want a strong woman be a safe place for her. Strong women need to feel safe and secure. Step into your masculine. You know what that means.

Women if you want a loving man you must love yourself and BE loving to them. Step into your feminine.. you ALSO know what that means… if you don’t , read up: lots of materials on this topic there is not room for two masculine energies in a relationship. That doesn’t work.

I am so in love with my husband Brooks Hollan. Can’t wait to celebrate 50 more.
