Letting Go of the "Must Haves"

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 16, 2017 3:31:28 PM

We’ve all given and received the sage advice, “let go.” Whether it’s a job, habit, idea, or relationship, it’s safe to say that guidance is easier to give than it is to receive. The idea of letting go is light and free and hopeful, but the act of actually doing it can be daunting and painful on a number of levels. Letting go is hard work which is why so many people prefer to stay stuck.

Kelleher International matchmaker, Doreen Justice is no stranger to hard work and letting go.

Matchmaker's Perspective: The Journey

Posted by Kelleher International on May 25, 2017 10:00:00 AM

 

Let’s be honest. None of us know how the story ends, yet we spend so much of our lives speculating and trying to control the path. Inevitably we feel quite certain we indeed know “exactly how this is going to go.” It’s part of the human condition.

And there’s no area of life where we do this more than in romantic love.

Ask the Matchmaker: Do This for Success

Posted by Kelleher International on May 19, 2017 4:00:00 AM

 

Even for the most put together person killing it in business, finding footing in love can feel like navigating treacherous terrain. Some days you feel powerful and hopeful and ready to embrace the world. You put yourself out there, smile, engage, and stay open to the possibilities. Some days you wake up, look over at the pillow next to you with a tender ache to have a soulful connection with someone and then spend the rest of the day fighting the Eeyore effect. The uncertainty can be overwhelming. We get it.

So, what gives? You might be wondering.

What can you do to set yourself up for success in love and matchmaking?

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 10, 2017 11:08:29 AM

For years, relationship gurus, psychologists and matchmakers have recommended more optimism in relationships.

Thinking on the bright side might seem impossible, especially if one or both of you are not optimistic by nature. Don’t worry! Our matchmakers have compiled a guide to help you harness the power of optimism and bring it into your budding relationship.

How Uncertainty Can Help You Find Happiness in Your Relationship

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 3, 2017 10:59:36 AM

As much time as we spend contemplating things, you could say we spend most of our lives living in our own heads. Our relationship with self is the longest and most intimate of any we will ever have, and it’s the one we should always trust the most. That inner voice, sometimes referred to as our “larger self” helps us navigate through life and establish our values. Unfortunately, it can also cause quite a bit of over-thinking when it comes to love.

Complete certainty, when it comes to love, is impossible. Humans are crazy creatures, constantly making decisions, experiencing things, growing and evolving on a never ending loop. When two of these humans get together, they’re both on their own wheel of evolution attempting to move in sync with their partners. You can see how expecting certainty in that situation is quite impractical. So what does that mean for you? You have to embrace uncertainty. It’s scary, and sometimes painful, but more often than not, it’s exhilarating, life-affirming, and exactly where the magic happens.

Follow these tips from our matchmakers to banish some of the biggest bi-products of uncertainty and let your love shine!
