Whether you’re married or single… Happily or not happy at all… I believe we all dream of our version of the “fairytale” love affair that sweeps us off our feet, and we ride off into the sunset with Prince/Princess Charming. BUT what if Prince/Princess Charming becomes not so charming, or worse yet, Prince/Princess Harming?! This is why and what you do about it…

It’s simply meant to be.

It’s “supposed to…”

Have you ever said these things? Especially when you’ve met a great guy, or perhaps married one?

So what do you do when “simply meant to be” is not that simple?

First of all, “meant to be” isn’t valid until it’s already happened.

Second of all, you won’t know what’s “supposed to” happen until it’s happened!

If you wait around looking for “supposed to be” you’ll wait…and waste…a lot of valuable life(time.)

Yesterday I asked you if you’re willing to do what it takes to know and love you.

What’s your answer?

If the answer’s yes, then let’s talk about what it’s going to take…

First, in order to discover the incredible possibility and solution, you MUST understand the painful problem.


The first problem is what I call the CINDERELLA SYNDROME.

Broken glass stilettos will also cause create a lot of divorced hearts and broken stories.

It’s the nightmare that follows the belief that HE (or anyone) is going to save and somehow give you your Happy Ever After!

ONE relationship will NOT make your dreams come true, unless it’s with the One who gave you the dreams in the first place, as well as the dreamer herself!

On the contrary, one relationship can destroy both your dreams and the dreamer.

Today we discuss The Cinderella Syndrome starting in Chapter 1 of Date Yourself Well: Page 21-24.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Take some time today to think about what we talked about today…The Cinderella Syndrome.

Journal about it…

Get real honest with yourself.

Is there any old belief within you that is hoping that someone is going to come along and rescue you from yourself?

How’s that working for you?

Journal. Allow your heart to speak to you today…
