The HOOD Setup:
Dave and Bill and our 3 very special guests today on CHWR…
David Sabine, Mimi Donaldson & Kristin Andress A Very Special Valentines Day In The HOOD
Mimi was our first guest and she talked about the importance of listing to our spouses sometimes it’s not what they say but the unspoken words of their hearts you need to listen too :O)
Mimi Donaldson, Communications Humorist : Love and Communication – Post-season?
“February is tough on men … football season is out and Valentine season is in!” “Help him get out of “Gridiron Gridlock” … before your love life gets “benched”!
“The Valentine season is upon us, and you need to speak FOOTBALL!”
Mimi Donaldson, Corporate-forged Humorist, Communicator, and Author of “Necessary Roughness, New Rules for the Contact Sport of Life”, “Bless Your Stress”, and Negotiating Fo Dummies”. She is talking football from the locker room to the bedroom with good humor and good taste!

Next was Kristin – Have A Great Valentines Day By Intent! On February 14, America will “celebrate” Valentines Day and likely spend $13 Billion.
So often, we are not sure what our spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend or partner will find to be special from you on Valentine’s Day… or what a day to yourself can mean.
Kristin Andress, Corporate Consultant and Author of “Imagine Being In A Life You Love” says: “Be intentional about designing the day… take out the chance, but keep the Romance!”
“…don’t do this on Feb 14th only… but be intentional about designing romance throughout the year.

and to wrap it up, we then were joined by: David Sabine, Cilnical Psychologist: No Broken Hearts Today!
“Another Valentine’s day is just around the corner and for those dealing with a recent break up, valentine’s day can be particularly painful…”
Will a break up determine how you next romantic relationship will be?
No, nothing is determined in love. But it may indeed influence our choices. Sometimes when love fails we over-react in the opposite direction in the next relationship. But more often, in spite of our statements and vows to the contrary, we tend to seek out future partners that are similar to our past partners.
