No mind reading happening over here.
This is a top priority on my to do list--what about you, sweet friends?
Give me a πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ in the comments if you're giving this a try, too!
(Mainly so I know I'm not alone! Lol 🀣)

Hogan's are Hoganing early this Monday morning #hogangamestrong #hoganshitshow #communicationskillsonpoint #honeyneuners

We are working so hard behind the scenes so we thought we'd let you in on it!
We are working away on our custom workbooks (they're seriously amazing) and we want to share a sneak peek at them!
Check our Instagram stories for insider access!

"RP: So what would you say are common issues that couples seek therapy for?
T: One partner flooding the other partner with emotion then the other person withdrawing is one main relationship dynamic struggle. One person is more of the emotional, they wanna talk they wanna process things and their partner tends to pull back and withdraw. And then the more that they sweat the person the more the withdraw happens.
RP: Mhm.
T: That's a major issue that people come in with. I mean, when we say "communication" it can mean anything, but that’s really what people mean when they say we’re having communication issues. Or another main issue is when people don't know how to listen and they don't try to meet each other's needs. They're just trying to focus on their own. Another one is deep seeded resentment and issues have never been worked out. They just tend to bleed into everything else and there begins to be this deep seeded resentment which is hard to get past. There is certainly is a portion of people where there's been infidelity. There’s no question.
RP: Can you shed some light on that?"
β€’We're so excited to introduce you to our new-found, resident relationship expert, Tamara Adilman, MA, MEd, RCC. β€’We recently sat down with her and had a long discussion about relationships, her personal journey, and sex.
(Yep, we went there.)
In part 1, of our 3 part series, we’re talking all things relationships. And, man, she's got A LOT of answers--you need to hear what she thinks about technology and relationships.
β€’Link in profile, sweet friends!

Whew. We're gettin' real here today guys.
It's not your partners job to fix your insecurities.
(Ohp. We went there. 😳)
And we'd know, because we've both been there, too.
We've both brought our insecurities and plopped them right in each others laps and expected them to meet our needs and fix them.
It really doesn't work like that.
Our insecurities are OUR own responsibility.
Yes, our partners can accompany us on that journey, but they aren't responsible for it.
Check out the video to hear our thoughts, double tap and tell us what you think!
Yay or nah?

But wait--
What does that even mean?
Do you hold my confidence?
Are you reliable?
Do you show up for me?
We know what it's like to feel confused, betrayed and unsure how to rebuild.
Trust is this huge, vague word and when we tell someone we do or don't trust them--it's really not saying much.
What's more effective is to be specific.
Let's look at trust as an umbrella term and work on being more specific when it comes to building or breaking trust.
Try using words like boundaries, reliability, and holding this in confidence--instead of the blanket term of trust.
(It's worth it, trust our integrity in this one!)
(See what we did there? 😜)
We break down trust in our Events as one of our 4 pillars, so we can really get specific with our needs and shortfalls.
We go ALL in.
If this work interests you, check out our event link and let us work together on that resource (and many more!)
Tell us friends, would you say you've experienced trust issues? ('Cause goodness knows we have! πŸ˜‚)

Have you checked in with your partner lately?
C'mon, like actually checked in?
'Cause if not:
Number 1: You're not alone, we dropped the ball, too! Lol πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Number 2: You can schedule one right now!
Check in's are the way we keep our relationship free and clear of resentment, issues, and built up frustrations. It's how we nab issues before they become conflicts and how we share gratitude and appreciation with each other.
Check in's are so valuable.
It's like a staff meeting for your relationship--we all know when one is necessary and isn't happening and when you leave an amazing staff meeting feeling on top of the world.
Here's what ours look like:
Daily text check in's.
Reconvening nightly or every second night to recap our days, show up, and reciprocate needs.
Monthly or bi-monthly date nights.
And we aim for at least once a week TV time.
This is just to give you an idea of what we aim for and what checking in looks like for us. (Full disclaimer--it doesn't always happen this way! Lol!)
What does it look like for you guys?
And if that ball has slipped like ours, consider this your gentle reminder, sweet friends, to schedule your check in! ❀️
(It's worth it, we promise.)

"A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself--to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to be loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart."
--Leo F. Buscaglia
Well, sweet friends, that sums up our thoughts for the night.
Enjoy your #friyay and be free!

Ah. The way to anyone's heart: conflict resolution strategies and food.
Seriously though, this rockstar was AMAZING at our last event. They showed up notebook ready (even though we gift every guest with one anyway!) and could not have been more open and receptive.
We always tell our guests, you get out of this experience what you put into it.
And this lovely friend took it all--because they gave it all.
It makes us so happy to read feedback like this, to see how when you're ready and willing, you can grow exponentially.
We're so proud of all our friends that join us.
We can't put into words how grateful we are to do this work with you, and how we're even more grateful that you show up ready to jump in and fly.
We can't wait for our next event--it's coming up so soon! Woop!
Edmonton, you ready?
Jump in! The link is in our profile!

We have been working so hard behind the scenes and have so many EXCITING things to share with you!
We are steppin' our game up, friends.
We've got some amazing (and incredibly generous!) sponsors partnering with our next event to spoil our guests with INCREDIBLE gifts, giveaways and draws!
(Honestly, were jealous of these giftings!! We wish we could take part in them, too!)
Stay tuned for the partnership detail releases--you don't want to miss them.
Those of you who've already jumped in and are joining us--it just keeps getting sweeter.
We can't wait to spoil you!
If you haven't checked out the event details or gotten your tickets, it's not too late, link in profile, sweet friends!

Hey friends! We sharing with you an insight we had that changed everything.
You can either be right, or be in a relationship, you can't always have both.
Check out the vid to hear more about it! Tell us friends, do you agree?

Hanger is real.
Don't try to tell me it's not.
It's @jakealler here today and I just have one important message to share with you guys.
If you're in a conflict, argument, or just irritated at the world--
Put food in your belly.
It makes a huge difference for me and for my wife @tayloraller.
Hanger is real my friends.
(See how happy I am with a snack? πŸ˜πŸ‘ŠπŸ½)

I recently shared this over on @relationshipproject and it's just stuck with me. I thought I'd share it here, too.
Hello friends! It's just me @tayloraller here today and I want to get something off my chest.
What is with the whole "read between the lines" thing?
The miscommunication about what is actually being said versus what one actually means--is garbage.
When we're in a committed relationship, why would we make things more difficult by not being as clear and literal as we can?
Well, I can answer that.
I used to be one of those miscommunicators.
Honestly? It all came from fear and insecurity.
I didn't want to be a nag, annoying, needy, crazy, stupid, or (what I was really scared of) left and abandoned.
So instead of saying how I really felt, what I really needed, what was really important to me, in a clear concise way, I would say what I thought my man wanted to hear--while still feeling the way I felt.
Because I was scared.
Cue resentment, passive-aggressive tendencies and how I really felt still not being addressed.
As I'm sure you know sweet friends, this wasn't productive, effective, or healthy--literally, it was making me sick.
I'm not saying this whole revelation was sunshine and rainbows either.
This condensed caption took me years to grasp.
Now when we communicate I say exactly how I feel, what I think, and express what I need. No "reading between the lines" or "you-should-know-what-I-mean" business going on over here.
(Bahaha--at least that's what I'm aiming for!)
Whew. I'm glad that's off my chest.

Protection mode over connection mode.
How often, when something challenging or new comes up, do we flick that switch and go for protection over connection?
We choose safety and comfort over courage and effort.
(If you're anything like us, that switch presents itself often.)
Today we encourage you, friends, when that switch presents itself--pause.
That's it.
Create that space to choose connection over protection.
Create space to choose courage over comfort.
Create that space by pausing.
We know this is a little heavy for a Sunday morning, but we are double-dog-daring ya.
You in?
P.S. our next event happening in Edmonton is LIVE! Visit the link in profile to check out the details!

What is your ideal Apology?
(Wait...my what?)
Yeah--we couldn't answer that either until we learned and failed and learned again.
It was, and sometimes still is, a struggle.
But you know what makes that easier? Knowing our ideal apologies.
And, friends, we've condensed that learning into a beautiful 8 Page Apology Guide, just for you!
(And all fo' FREE!)
Lucky you!

Have you touched someone today?
(And no not in a creepy way!)
There's loads of research on the power of touch in intimate relationships, one of the most powerful results indicating that "touch strengthens relationships and is a marker of closeness," psychologist Kraus says. "It increases cooperation but is also an indicator of how strong bonds are between people."
In an intimate relationship, we can use that knowledge of touch to build our bonds and feelings of closeness.
A true indicator of a healthy long-term bond is not how often your partner touches you but how often he or she touches you in response to your touch.
"The stronger the reciprocity, the more likely someone is to report emotional intimacy and satisfaction with the relationship," researcher Guerrero says.
Well, we don't know about you friends, be we've got some touching to do!
(As if we needed another reason!)
