To have partnership in your life is ensuring that the foundation you are building is being properly erected.

It is always better to have an extra set of eyes, skills, ideas, understandings. When we work alone, we can accomplish incredible things, but when we open ourselves to a partner willing to listen and share with the same in return, we grow. We bring more to the project, the community, the world. I can learn any tool or fact or exercise from a book, but I may never see it from the angle someone else may bring.

Individuals are beautiful and should be shared. Our lives are not meant to live alone and without connections.

Foundations are built to withstand pressure, and sometimes there is an issue that can’t be solved without help. We must remember, we all need help some times.

I believe when two or more people come together with a common goal, the power grows. Fear no longer has the means to take over. What stood alone now has support, accountability and connection. A connection that can reach beyond itself and become more.

My partnerships have helped me repair the cracks in my foundation. They have helped me to build higher and more soundly than I ever thought possible.

The reality is, I may be have been able to do it alone, I may have learned what I needed to survive and I may have continued to build my walls alone…but why would I?

We were not put on this earth to do it alone. We would not have been created with such a powerful need to connect to others living beings if we were.

I will always reach out to others. To build relationships in my life. This to me is life. It’s essential and purposeful. My heart would break without it. Why would I ever choose a broken heart.
