Jack And The Beanstalk.

Jack and the Beanstalk

I adore finding “magic beans” in my garden. Every season a few magically evade picking and eating, so I save them to be displayed and squealed over and sometimes wonder what would happen if I went to a local Farmers Market and tried swapping them for a (pet) cow!

I have grown enough beautiful beanstalks to know that they require staking if they are to reach their full potential, just as I know that all relationships require support if they are expected to grow.

It’s not enough to just expect our union to blossom into something fruitful if we don’t take care of it. The giant who came a cropper in the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk really could have

done with having a kinder temperament. If he had of been nicer, his wife wouldn’t have lied to him, and Jack could have visited more often and had great conversations. Instead it all went horribly wrong.

There is a simple saying “What you give out, you get back.” Kindness is one of the greatest things to give out. Other qualities that will help your love thrive are friendship, open-hearted communication, sincerity, equality, having minimal expectations, honesty, doing your best to understand and be understanding, maturity, patience, appreciation, support, and a good balance of power.

Tell me one magic thing you believe in doing which you know makes your love thrive?

    Love this post. For me a really central thing for making love thrive in my life is to accept people as they are.

      Thank you. Ah yes, acceptance is a wonderful thing.
