Wisdom from Orna and Matthew Walters

Love is not something that happens by accident. It is something you choose to create each and every day of your life. We know this from our own relationship and from coaching thousands of clients.

We didn’t connect until after 40, and when we did, it was different than any other relationship we’d ever experienced.

So how did we learn to create love on purpose? We learned from our past, and made the changes necessary to have a successful relationship.

"And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make" ~ The Beatles
