Trust and Faith

Very often people confuse trust and faith, but they are very different.

Trust is the belief you can get through anything.

Faith is the energy that grows from that trust, helping you carry on until these do get better. You can’t have faith without trust.

Some recent disappointing medical results once again has called my trust and faith into play. Thankfully, they are intact in my belief system and I’m leaning on them right now big time.

What has happened in your life that caused you to look again to your trust and faith?

Get the Message

Life sends us messages all the time. When we don’t hear the message, we get a lesson.

If we don’t learn the lesson, we then get a problem.

And if we don’t handle the problem, we get a full-blown crisis.

Get The Message.

What’s one recent time when you didn’t want to hear the message and it became a crisis?

This happens so often in relationships when we know something is not going well but we believe somehow it will become ok. Rarely does this happen. Take steps now to turn your ship around and head it in the direction you desire in your life.

Who Says I Love You more often and who says it first?

My dear friend, Ana Weber, just shared with me some fascinating online survey results and I think you might also find them interesting.  This survey asked 80,000 members a series of questions regarding the three most important words in any relationship: “I love you.”

 The results were quite intriguing—contrary to popular belief, it is actually the man who says “I love you” first and more often in any serious relationship. The survey also asked where men and women prefer saying “I love you,” as well as how long it takes both sexes to reach this milestone.

Dating Survey: Men Say “I Love You” First and More Often

Women may express emotions more than men, but that doesn’t mean they’re quick to saying “I Love You.”  Seventy Six percent of all serious relationships began with the man saying, “I love you.” 73 percent also stated that men say “I love you” more often. While the survey shows that men tend to embrace this relationship milestone first, they do so privately. Approximately 81 percent of men prefer to say “I love you” in the bedroom, whereas 67 percent of women prefer to say “I love you” over the phone.

The survey yielded the following results:

MEN first say “I Love You” at an average of 6 weeks into the relationship.
·         81 percent of men first said “I love you” in a private setting, such as the bedroom.
·         11 percent of men first said “I love you” over the phone via call or text.
·         8 percent of men first said “I love you” in a public setting, such as a restaurant.

WOMEN first say “I Love You” at an average of 8 weeks into the relationship.
·         30 percent of women first said “I love you” in a private setting, such as the bedroom.
·         67 percent of women first said “I love you” over the phone via call or text.
·         3 percent of women first said “I love you” in a public setting, such as a restaurant.

These numbers may shed light on why certain relationships last. Men are often perceived as emotionally reserved compared to women. This survey completely contradicts this stereotype, proving that men are as emotionally invested as women in any serious relationship.
