9 Ingredients Of Bold Love

Posted on Thursday, October 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

As a gardener I am learning the importance of fertile soil.

Last year we added three garden boxes.  This year we added three more.  Each time we mixed 1/3 compost with 1/3 peat moss with 1/3 course vermiculite.  Tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, several species of peppers, beans, and watermelon all love it.  They thrived in this soil mix.  After all thriving plants produce great results.

Thriving people produce great relationships.

Bold love — love that can provide room for hard conversations — needs a good mix to grow healthy realationships.

People thrive when they have a good mix of soil.

Here are nine ingredients needed to grow bold love.

Be faithful. Keep promises made.

Be honest.  Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Be on my side. Encourage my growth and maturity.

Be open. Have respect for my faith.

Be reliable. Demonstrate congruent values and beliefs.

Be resilient. Purpose to resolve conflict.

Be respectful. Show that you respect me despite our differences.

Be sensitive. Never knowingly hurt me.

Be vulnerable. Share your ideas and dreams.
