The Tangram of Love [Foolish Insights – The Tangram of Love, first published on Sunday, April 16th, 2017] What do you do when your husband or wife is out of town? Tweet That  *Full Trancript* It’s been a long time since I have an entire weekend to myself, without Andrew here with me. Years ago, when he used to travel for work or for family and I didn’t go with him, I would usually stay home and do some spring cleaning. After all, Success Principle #28 is to clean up your Messes and Incompletes. So that’s what I decided to do. This weekend I decided to clean out my closet, give away anything that hasn’t been used for many years and either give them away, recycle them, or somehow get rid of them. On top of all my clothes these are 2 shelves that has some really old stuff there. I’m talking my wedding shoes from 1999, some drafting pencils that Andrew used when he was in art school, and some other stuff that I haven’t seen in a long time. And I came across this little pink toy that I didn’t even remember that I have, and it is actually quite an interesting piece. It is a “tangram”.

What we have here is that, in order to make up this perfect, heart-shaped, intimate relationship, this perfect shape, there is more than 1 piece. It takes more than just love. After all, love is just an emotion, a feeling.An intimate relationship involves multiple pieces, and of course it takes love. Love is the foundation of a relationship, but that’s not all there is. There are other pieces to the puzzle. Not only do you need all the pieces you also need to know how to put them all together. Otherwise, even if you have all the pieces, things won’t work out to the way you like it. If you arrange the pieces differently, you ended up with something else, something other than the perfect heart, the perfect relationship. We’ve talked about the life circle before and if you haven’t, make sure you visit our website and check out the video we posted up on our about us page. The link can be found here as well. It is the foundation of building a perfect, intimate, connected, long-lasting, passionate relationship. Think about someone that you knew that has been through a divorce or a break up. What was their reason for separating? More than likely the formal, stated reason is irreconcilable differences, right? Think…
