Despite greeting cards and Valentines, your heart has nothing to do with love. Everything related to love happens in the brain, Nour said. That includes romance — programmed to be fairly short-lived for all of us. If you accept that, you'll have fewer divorces and more happy people. Much of it is unconscious, with instinct guiding you through the process, Nour said.
Lasting love includes the zeal of a fifth grader and the maturity of a friend.
We see people as we want them to be, not as they are. Enjoy it because these intense feelings will go away in a few short years, Nour said.

This phase has an important purpose: It prepares you for true love down the road. Everyone goes through this stage, even the most adoring, passionate couples you know. In a culture that focuses almost solely on romantic love, it can be very alarming when you realize the rush is gone, the passion has vanished, and your spouse no longer makes your pulse race.

Think of this time as a chance to see your partner for what he really is and decide if you made the right choice. If you feel that, overall, you made a pretty good choice… hang in there. People who chase romance and divorce the moment they fall out of love will never experience true love, he said. Our meeting point was Union Square, he was coming straight from a meeting and I was coming almost straight from the airport.
As I walked towards Union Square I saw him standing on a corner — and that is when I felt the rush — I was falling in love! The next three months were hard as we only talked on the phone or over Skype. We had both fallen madly in love with each other, but the circumstances were far from ideal, living in different countries and him figuring out his divorce.

There were times were I thought I should just give up before we even had a proper relationship. I sometimes had cryptic status messages on Facebook that only him and his mother understood as sign of giving up or asking for help. This was a once in a lifetime job opportunity but at the same time my Tony Robbins friend could also be a once in a lifetime true love opportunity. By the 1st of September I had to make a decision. Was I going to move to Sweden for a job or to Switzerland for love?
Almost everybody advised me to go for the job as the love was too new to tell and if it was strong enough that we could figure it out. My brain told me to go for the job but my heart told me to choose love. I called Nissan and declined the once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity. Without really knowing each other we started living together. The next six months were really hard, much harder than those three months before.
We were basically still total strangers and despite being madly in love there was just so much still to figure out between us. There were several times were I felt I had maybe made a mistake moving to Switzerland but I was stubborn at the same time and determined to make this work. With every argument we grew closer and learned how to deal with life and each other until things became really smooth and easy.
It helped to watch Tony Robbins videos and think how he would have solved our dilemma. Date with Destiny, our third Tony Robbins seminar, was in the middle of our difficult six months. We went through the whole range of emotions during those six days and learned so much about ourselves and our love. It was a true date with destiny for us.
We grew closer and closer together as soul mates, lovers and best friends. We talked about following our passions and making our dreams come true.
We both decided to make love and passion our priority in life and that was a big shift for both of us. Exactly four years after our date in San Francisco we sealed our passion for each other with a wedding in Iceland. I also realised that I wanted to live with passion in all other areas of my life. I started to think about how important passion is in your professional life and what I could do about it.
I started to think about having my own business. It took me a few more years to find the courage to start my own business but when I finally did, I can trace back my first thoughts to this first seminar with Tony Robbins — where I found true love and passion. And love is like passion; you have to be open and vulnerable to find both. Passion is within you and when you are ready to receive — love will be there too. Let me know what you think about love and passion in the comments below. I would love to hear from you. I just surfed on your new website and found this inspiring post of your lovestory.
Thanks to you, to be opened and for sharing your private story with us! Long-Distance-relationsships are always hard. Until now I meant, must to avoid this if at all possible… But now, enjoying your true story, I realize, that I would spoil myself a little… And I am encouraged to be more open. Thank you Chantal for your comment.
Where there is a will there is a way. True love is so strong that it can survive long-distance relationships too but at some point you have to make a decision whether to take it to the next level. I decided that it needed to happen sooner than later. Love it. Magic was afoot. This is such a great reminder that anything can happen when you stay open to possibility!

Blessings of beauty to you both, Cat xo. What a wonderful story. A real reminder that anything really can happen. I think many of us in your position would have discounted anything at all from ever happening knowing he was already married, but it just shows how life can work out. I think its wonderful you met at a seminar like TR as it shows you are both like minded and willing to explore your selves, which is perhaps one of the reasons as you highlight, why the relationship did work.
This is a beautiful story, Sigrun. Thanks for being so open in sharing the details with us. Your willingness to be open during the seminars led you to your new love and it is exciting to see that you are still willing to be vulnerable.
