Marilyn Monroe and the Unlovable Myth

Isn’t it funny (sad) how we all ache to be loved, but we only celebrate love for love’s sake once a year?

I’m lucky. I married my soul mate. He’s the yin to my yang. It’s interesting, though. I don’t feel like he just *appeared* in my life. I had to learn a lot of tough lessons about myself first before I could appreciate the gift he is to me.

I am friends with a lovely couple who also believe they’re soul mates. What’s amazing about Scott and Shannon Peck is that they have 3 divorces between them! How easy would it have been for either of them to deflect another Cupid call?

In fact, they wrote a wonderful blog post about Marilyn Monroe’s unrequited search for love. Here was a woman who became known–and is still known today–as the sexiest woman on earth, but who suffered terribly during her brief life from low self-esteem and terror that a man might discover she just wasn’t "all that."

All of us have a secret voice inside that tells us we’re "not good enough," "not smart enough" or even "not lovable enough." We don’t want to admit it. But we’re human, and that self-talk can get pretty brutal at times.

So because it’s Valentine’s Day, and you are very precious to me, I want to give you my version of a Valentine. Scott and Shannon are allowing me to shower you with "All the Love You Could Ever Want," 5 inspirational recordings on how you can experience ultimate intimacy with your soul mate (or future soul mate!)

Happy Valentine’s Day. And please write me back, and tell me what you thought. Or post your point of view on "being in love" on my Wall.


P.S. I’m so excited! I just landed my own radio talk show on KCMO-710AM.If you have a chance, please listen live this Sunday at 11am. My special guests will be Tara Simon, Senior VP of Merchandising for Beauty Brands, and Carey Casey, CEO of National Center for Fathering. We’ll be chatting on "Surrendering Power and Control in Relationships."
