In John 15:12 the Bible tells us to “Love each other as I have loved you.” It is easy to love your family and friends (most of the time at least 😉 ) but it is not always easy to love those who have done you wrong. So, how do we love everyone, even those we dislike, like God loved us, and why should we?

Easy. Because God says so. I know that is the most “Bible” answer ever, but it is the truth. We should love johnothers like God loves us, because it shows that we are different. When people see how differently you treat others and how you love others, they will be curious as to what it is that makes you different. It is Jesus that makes you different! It is the fact that you know you should love people like God loves you. God loves you even though you have disappointed Him, even though you sin, even though you sometimes do or say things that are harmful or hurtful to others. This is how you should love others, in spite of their flaws and sins. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to be their BFF, it just means you need to treat them with respect and love, just as God treats you.

You will change people’s lives when you love them as God loves you. It is so different from how the world is used to being treated. Be different, and make a difference.

Let’s face it. We have all secretly wanted to try maple syrup on our spaghetti, and it is all because of Buddy the Elf. “Elf” may be one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies. And, although he may not give the best food advice, Buddy the Elf is actually pretty smart when it comes to love. Here are a few things the big guy in green tights has taught us about how to love someone.

  1. Go for it!: Don’t be scared to give love a try.
  2. Take risks: Now, that doesn’t mean eating gum off of a NYC subway railing. 😉tumblr_mc9renKUTF1rhucoqo1_500
  3. Plan fun outings with your crush: How much fun is it to jam-pack every Christmas related activity you can think of into your weekend? Do it Buddy the Elf style and plan to make snow angels for 2 hours, go ice skating, then eat a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as they could, and then snuggle.
  4. Stay positive: Buddy shows us that a smile can solve any problem. In fact, smiling is his favorite. And when you smile, it makes people around you feel the love.
  5. Give them your attention: Show someone you love them by giving them your undivided attention, and by asking them about themselves. It will make them feel like you are interested in them and who they are! Even questions like “what’s your favorite color” are Buddy approved. 😉

See? Buddy the Elf is full of good love advice! Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go curl up with a bowl of spaghetti and maple syrup and watch me some Elf.

XOXO, Chels

How To Get Over Your Ex

Some ex’s are just tough to get over. Sometimes you can even be tempted to go back to go to them! Don’t fall for that trap! Here are some ways to get over those tricky ex’s.

1. Exercise the blues away

Exercise is a great way to boost your endorphins and get out of your depressed state! When you are happy, you aren’t feeling down and won’t be so tempted to go back to your ex! Just 10 minutes of moderate exercise is enough to improve your mood. Not only does exercise boost your mood, exercise helps your body look and feel better, which boosts your self confidence! When you are happier and more self confident, you are in the right mindset to leave your past relationship in the dust and explore new horizons!

2. Take time to rebuild your relationship with yourself and God

chelsea crockett over it

A lot of times, when you are in a relationship you often put the other person’s needs and wants above your own. Sometimes this can cause you to lose a little bit of yourself. That is no bueno! Often when your relationship comes to an end, you may find it difficult to remember the things that you enjoyed or liked to do because you were so wrapped up in what HE wanted. Pray about it. Lose yourself in Jesus and become so close to Him that all of your relationship blunders will fade into the past. Rebuilding your relationship with yourself and God is the first step to moving on

3. Find a new hobby

Now that you are single and free, find something that you love to do! You may have pushed aside a hobby of yours while you were in a relationship, but now that you are single you are free to do as you please! Immersing yourself in a hobby will not only keep your mind off of your ex, but it will also bring you joy! Pick up painting or photography or even reading! Anything you like!

Kick those ex’s to the curb, ladies! Show ‘em you are strong and resilient.

XOXO, Chels

Welcome to the office of love dr. Chelsea! If you watched my  YouTube vid, then you know it is all about my love life (of lack thereof). Well, since I am such an expert on love (okay, maybe not an expert) I thought that I would give you all some friendly relationship advice. Relationships are tough, so a little advice wouldn’t hurt!

  1. Stay independent. When you are in a relationship, it is really easy to want to spend every waking minute with that person. Resist that temptation! I am not saying that it is bad to spend time with them, but everyone knows that girl that blows off all of her friends for her boyfriend, and that is totally not healthy! Doing your own thing every once in a while ad44d43ed81591320331ae17024066d8leads to a healthier relationship.
  2. Don’t try to be perfect, just be honest. Just be yourself when you are with your man candy! He knows that you aren’t perfect, so don’t try to be! Trying to be perfect for him can be exhausting, and it doesn’t show him who you really are.
  3. Don’t take yourself too seriously. This kind of goes with the last one, but I thought it deserved its own category. If you try and take yourself too seriously, then you keep yourself from having fun! Joke around, have tickle fights, just do fun stuff! But also, when the time is right, you can be serious. Joking around can be great, but sometimes you have to take things seriously.
  4. Keep your boundaries clear. When you are up front about your boundaries and morals, it makes dating much easier because they know exactly what you are about! Keep it Christ centered J

The picture I used in this article shows you how joking around can be fun. Love can be a blast, you just gotta have some tips on how to navigate through the waters. Hang on ladies, it can be a bumpy ride!

XOXO, Chels
