There is only one person who can determine how far you can go in life -- you. Always remember that what you tell yourself and believe about yourself will be the truth.
Worst title ever, best news ever. Those who wended their way past the 50-year wedded mark report a slight uptick in their sex lives. And! More exciting still, sex frequency of long-married couples continued to rise.
We have all done it. After too many drinks we find ourselves doing what our sober selves would never do. We make that phone call to the one person in the world we know we should not be calling at two in the morning; the infamous drunk dial. It is the one mistake that we know in our hearts is a mistake even as we scroll through our contact list and press send.
People can sense the disingenuous person miles away. We have that "gut" feeling which, while we cannot explain it, can sway us one way or another. It does not matter what business you are in, the number one way to be an effective communicator and build lasting relationships is to be genuine.
We were sitting at the pub just a few miles from our house, my husband Michael and I, enjoying a pint of beer and surveying the menus. No kids, no curfew---just two wanna-be hipsters in their mid-to-late thirties pretending we were cool again.

Men take a lot of flak for their obnoxious ticks and disgusting habits, but admit it ladies, putting up with us isn't all rainbow-colored unicorns galloping off into the sunset in a field of glitter, either. Women will argue this until the day we die, but the truth is, we have no fu*king clue what we want.
These negative words are words often used by a bully. Many of us are familiar with the character that just constantly tormented us. I realized that this bully character, which I thought I said farewell to after my teen years, never disappeared in my life. And that person was me.
One half of all of your relationships will always consist of you, and you are the only person that you know for sure will be a part of your love life for ever. Making sure that you know and like yourself is the foundation of your love life, and will make everything else a lot easier.
The signs are everywhere that give us that chance. Taking time to be aware of your reactions, thoughts and emotions will bring you into a space of clarity and balance where you can make informed decisions guided and supported by your soul... decisions that will usher in release and healing for yourself and your life.
Oh young, or even not young, love! Remember when you would crack jokes and your wife would laugh and laugh? That's over now, my friend. Well, sometimes she still laughs, but not like before.
