Relationship Advice: The Best is Yet to Come

Mar 11, 2008
In my work with women and relationships, I often help them through break ups. One of the most common lies I hear women tell themselves is, "I gave him the best years of my life." This is simply nonsense. The best is always yet to come, if you choose it to be.

So, you are getting older by the minute and cannot reclaim your youth. But happiness is found in our experiences and our attitude, not our age. By learning how to attract and maintain a good relationship, you will have a happier future and avoid the heartache.

Unfortunately, some people feel that our bad habits cannot be changed the older we get. We think over eating, falling into bad relationships or smoking become part of who we are and we blindly accept the often horrible consequences that accompany them. We've all heard people say, " I'm too old to quit smoking," or, "It's too late for me to regain my youthful figure."

It is never too late and we are never too old to make the changes to better our future. There was an 83 year old gentleman who was a part of my church who was homebound. With the encouragement of some members of the congregation, he was able to give up smoking, a habit he had for many years. With in a matter of weeks, he was out playing golf again, something he hadn't done in years!

It's wonderful that this gentleman accepted the support and encouragement of those who loved him, took the necessary steps to change things, and regained his life. It's just unfortunate that he didn't do it sooner. Imagine the years wasted being homebound.

You cannot give someone the best years of your life because of the youth you have lost. A lady from my church found herself single again. Instead of wallowing in her heartache, she decided to find ways to continue to grow and develop herself. Because of this, she eventually married again in her 80's! She still is enjoying the best years of her life with her new husband as they ride around the country on their motorcycles!

If people in their 80's are still dropping bad habits and finding themselves in meaningful relationships, you can do it too. It takes a good attitude, the right support, and knowledge of how to change. Your life is nothing less or better than what you make of it. You decide when to have the best years of your life, and you can always choose have the best yet to come.
