We Almost Didn’t Make It

We almost didn’t make it. 10 years together, married 5 years TODAY at the San Diego courthouse (then 2 months later with family and friends) And…yup… we almost didn’t make it. So many ups and downs but WOW, so worth the journey!

We Almost Didn't Make It pinterest thumbnailI am more in love with my husband today than the day I said “I do”

What didn’t work for us:

  • Needing to be “right”
  • Putting work before each other
  • Forgetting what we love about each other
  • Blaming
  • Talking to others about our blame.
  • Expecting the other to “change”
  • Wanting to quit when it got hard

What worked:

  • Choosing LOVE
  • Patience
  • Meaning our commitment
  • Working on ourselves and taking personal responsibility
  • Lots and lots and LOTS of personal development.
  • Loving ourselves
  • Listening
  • Letting the unimportant things go
  • Remembering our intentions
  • Working THROUGH things
  • Creating space to truly be with each other.


Men if you want a strong woman be a safe place for her. Strong women need to feel safe and secure. Step into your masculine. You know what that means.

Women if you want a loving man you must love yourself and BE loving to them. Step into your feminine.. you ALSO know what that means… if you don’t , read up: lots of materials on this topic there is not room for two masculine energies in a relationship. That doesn’t work.

I am so in love with my husband Brooks Hollan. Can’t wait to celebrate 50 more.
