Love Notes - Friday 2/4/11

Check out these great reads about LOVE from around the web this week.

Have a fab weekend!

On the CurvyGurl Chronicles, check out this thought-provoking piece called A Soulful Relationship by Rev. Ronald McFadden:
"Before you get involved and make a commitment to someone, don't let lust, desperation, immaturity, ignorance, pressure from others or a low self-esteem, make you blind to warning signs.

"First and foremost, marriage is designed to help you grow up. It’s not about happiness. It’s not about becoming more complete, despite what Hollywood and popular press would like you to believe. Marriage is about growing. Happiness will accompany you at times along the way, but it’s not the ultimate goal.    And second: your growth – your responsibility; your spouse’s – theirs. When you keep this in mind you realize that all you can control in a relationship is yourself..." Read more
