Relationships ARE like our kitchen. Depending on how your kitchen is laid out can say a lot about how you view your relationships in life. Think about it for a minute. We all have cabinets, we all put certain things in their certain places and we know they’re there if we need to use them. How does this all play a part within our relationships? Well, if you have a scattered kitchen and things aren’t placed in their perspective places we get lost trying to find them.
In our minds we do the same thing in relationships. We meet someone and we put them in “our cabinet” we compartmentalize them. We ask ourselves questions about the other person. Do I like this person? Is he/she just a friend? Are they a potential lover? Are they someone I want to have a long lasting relationship with? Or is this person just someone who passed through my life? Does that passage have a meaning? When we decide on these factors we put them into a category… or a cabinet. If we like this person as a friend, we put them into the “friends category” (something like where we would store our mixer) because we don’t use it every day. If this same person is thought to be a potential lover, we may put them into the “coffee” canister, something most of us access every day.
The question comes to mind of “What if I’m not sure where to put them?” Then this is where your kitchen gets cluttered…this is where we put our mail…on the counter until we decide what to do with it. We all have departments of our compartments but how we manage those compartments is what defines how we mange our relationships.
Until Next Time,

The good news is they have a place to live. There's nothing wrong with an empty kitchen, it gives you more room to build. Start building.
What about that person who has absolutely nothing in their cupboards?? They live, day to day- meal to meal and most often borrow utensils or depend on take- out to provide them.
Intriguing….but unfortunately I don't drink coffee, so the potential lover would have to go somewhere else…maybe the refrigerator that way they are preserved and will last even longer.
Maybe they are like the mail on the counter…they are to important to be put out of sight and just like the mail on the counter they are important and not to be forgotten, so being on the counter they are always in sight / on my mind….
