It’s easy to head down to the gym and sign up for the membership. It's not quite as easy to head down to the gym consistently for 5 days a week for the first month, but it's doable. What’s really difficult is doing it, 4-5 days a week, for many years in a row.
As we all know, starting things is easy. Following through for a long period of time is a lot tougher. We also know that to get results, we need to be consistent. We need to focus on the process and not the outcome or expectation.
To live a consistent life, we should align our words and actions, and ensure they are supported with the right intention and the appropriate amount of effort.
The 5 Love Languages
Many of us have heard of the 5 Love Languages, a book by Gary Chapman, but understanding each of the languages and how it pertains to our relationships is not quite as easy as we think.
Understanding love languages can go a long ways towards understanding both ourselves and our partner as we try to navigate our way towards a long term relationship.
This event gives us the opportunity to examine the love languages in real time and with real people so that we can all get a better perspective of how they can impact our relationship.

Nature vs Nurture.
Are there really differences in gender? Are they justified... or are they just excuses for desired behaviours. Many people reject differences that are based on evolutionary biology and feel that the differences are based on culture and social environments.
If we want to progress towards true equality, it’s important to first try to understand where theses inequalities came from and why they existed in the first place. Once we understand that, then we can make conscious choices to deal with them.
The 4 Agreements

Victim - Persecutor - Rescuer
The Drama Triangle.
Now in different situations and at different times in our lives, we might be all 3, but it is important to understand that all three of them can be exhausting.
First described by Stephen Karpman in 1961, the drama triangle represents the roles that we may take on in different situations, which can result in us getting trapped in a role that is not really true to who we are, or want to be.
Are you a victim, a persecutor or a rescuer?
