- Travia uses her awareness of her partner’s love language to successfully express love for her wife, and her wife does the same knowing Travia’s love languages are touch and words of affirmation.
- Being aware of the intentions behind your actions and having a loving intent with your partner will go a long way in showing your partner love.
- Travia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020 and had a double mastectomy. Following the surgery, she became more aligned with her body and was able to reinvent herself in a more authentic form, which made her a better partner because she was no longer hiding.
- Reinvention is finding a new gear for who you are today, so that you can become the person your goals require you to be.
- One reinvention tool Travia uses in her marriage is a regular check-in with her wife. They remove distractions and answer a series of vulnerable questions such as asking how well they are meeting each other’s needs. It requires honesty, vulnerability, and listening.
