Expectations of your first Vacation trip away together…
After coaching singles and couples for 15 yrs., the biggest culprit to it NOT going well is unrealistic expectations.
Adopt an attitude of curiosity about how they tick, how much space do they need, how do they make decisions, how do they handle plans gone array?
When you eliminate expectations and become fascinated with this new love of your life, you won’t get triggered, you will be more flexible, you don’t take things personally AND most importantly you’ll stay present to YOUR needs.
The second biggest culprit of a first time getaway not being the best it could be, is YOU not telling your truth, saying you don’t mind when you do, saying yes when you mean no, stuffing your feelings and going into denial.
By being present, unattached and curious about how could your, already great new relationship, get even better, you won’t forget about YOUR needs and should you need to communicate something, by not stuffing it, you can let it flow with kindness, honestly, care and even humor.
Bottom line let go of expectations, be present and be YOU… and stay open to things unfolding beyond your imagination.>
