aith, trust, and hope are all things we all need in our lives and our relationships. There are those who trust easily, and others, like myself, who have become cynical and distrustful of everyone. I've been working on it, taking chances with love, and have even gotten to the point of feeling like I trust in what I'm doing. It's hard to trust in others when you have so much doubt about yourself. I'm learning, I hope you are too.

In learning about trust, I've started thinking about expectations and relationship goals. I believe that part of developing trust is in understanding your expectations of a relationship and your set of beliefs on how the other person should be. Sometimes our pasts lead us to have automated ideas of how others should be, ideas that they simply will not meet, as it is not part of their own personality. Acceptance and allowing the other person to be who they truly are and to love them for it, makes a stronger foundations for a lasting relationship.

Next month, we will discuss expectations and how to set goals with your partner to strengthen your relationship and bring you closer together in the ideas of what you will achieve. The end of the year brings us closer to our families and leads to thoughts of setting goals for the new year. This year, when setting those goals, we should consider those that will encourage and strengthen your love and bring you closer together.

Then again, it will be Christmas time. There will be lots of goodies, hot music downloads, a shopping extravaganza, and tons of hidden surprises! Take a moment to sign up for the L-mail newsletter, and start your subscriptions for next year. We will continue to provide a variety of views on relationship matters and lifestyle concerns with a fun mix of music, fashion, and naughty erotic tales! For those of you who want to participate, get your work published and tell the world your ideas... be sure to see the submission guidelines and send in your ideas today!

I hope this issue has given you plenty of thought on learning to trust. Be grateful for the love and trust you share with your family this Thanksgiving. Remember, that ideas for strengthening your relationship, can also help your family become stronger too. As you sit down for your family gathering, think through how thankful you are for each of them, and discuss ideas on how you can be a better contribution and inspiration to those you love in the coming year.

This year I am grateful for my family for all they do for me, my relationship for all its teaching me, and for the love I share with everyone around me. Most of all... I thank you, the readers, for being so supportive.
