I read the book, Getting the Love You Want, by Harville Hendrix several years ago when I was trying to save my marriage of nineteen years, but my husband was not interested in learning, counselling or any such thing, but the universe, God, was interested in turning my life around so into my life came a man who would challenge everything I knew to help me grow.
On Oprah’s new Soul Sundays, she ran her interview with Harville from several years ago and what struck me personally last Sunday was Harville’s thoughts about romantic love. It sends us over the top of anything and everything we have known … we are enamoured, often to the point of silliness and high drama (no wonder we love romantic comedies) but then in the other person, our beloved, we ultimately discover triggers and issues related to our childhood wounds that the relationship can help us heal from so we can move forward into healthy mature love, bringing us back together in romance, but this time built on something much stronger (unconditional love) rather than just the thrill of romantic love’s captivating whirl of emotions … or we turn or even run away because we do not understand what love really has to offer us other than the tingly feelings of romantic love.
In essence, my fiction novel, DARK HORSES, I realize says the same thing but in its own way. How sweet is that! Especially when combined with the other stories DARK HORSES also shows and tells. Ahhh, this book will make such a great television series!
And speaking of which, back to the writing I must go … but before I go, I want to thank you readers for joining the cast of characters and me for the ride!
