I have been with my romantic comrade, Alex, for 4 ½ years. I would say around two years ago we both inwardly realized and outwardly vocalized that we were each other's "last stop" on the dating train.
These days, I'm trying to be on my best behavior with life, in much the same way I was when I was dating my husband. I want to be kind, gracious, attentive, grateful, and trusting with whatever life decides to serve up on my plate. I'm invested in making this one work.
Your son is still discovering what makes him comfortable. It might be a messy room. Or, not. It's up to him to find out. And if you give him a little room (pun intented), you might be surprised that he's willing to put in the time and energy to have a clean one. Or, not!
There is one component that enables us to strengthen any type of relationship. This component represents a basic human need we all crave. But no one really anticipates you showing this component in your business relationships.
Appreciate your loved ones. Appreciate your parents. Appreciate your children. Appreciate your friends and colleagues. One day in the future, not too far from today, everything else will not matter anymore.
It feels like divine momentum that Earth Day and Fash Rev Day are only 24 hrs apart. A multitude of good can spring from even the most dire circumstances -- so how can we best harness the energy of change?
It's important because it separates our experience from other people's experiences. It's important because it allows us to take better care of ourselves -- emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually -- so we feel so much less stressed, overwhelmed, and out of balance.
Often, we overlook flaws because we fall in love with a person. This is admirable, but we also have to recognize the principles that mold a partner into a soulmate -- those elements that fortify a loving bond for the long run. Consider these seven qualities as essential to fostering an incredible, lifelong partnership...
Don't misunderstand me. I absolutely believe in soul mates. But what I have discovered is that just because I found someone who I connected with deeply on a soul level, it did not mean that was the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with.
Embrace your messiness, dear parents... we probably aren't as bad as we might lead ourselves to believe. My kids taught me that (as usual).
Forgiveness doesn't have to be complicated -- nor does releasing our anger and resentments have to be complicated. What it ultimately boils down to is our willingness release it and heal. We are able to forgive and open ourselves to love when we make the intention to forgive, let it go, and heal.
I believe my wife is the perfect match for me: she's smart, creative, sexy and loving. And Meg also knows how to push my buttons in a way that drives me up the wall. That also makes her perfect for me.
When it came to celebrating my husband's professional accomplishments, I wasn't the first to congratulate him. I felt jealous of his time in the limelight for very public recognition of his accomplishments in a career I had given up to care for our family. And I also interpreted his success as taking away from mine.
We are so sensitive and avoidant about death in this culture, aren't we? Not only about the death of the body -- our own, and those we cherish. But av...
Our ego-mind loves to distort the truth in ways that either makes us better than or less than others. I found that this search for who-you-really-are becomes much easier if you first clarify who-you-are-not. You need to peel away any false layers to reveal the real truth hidden within.
