When I first heard about Torre DeRoche's memoir, Love with a Chance of Drowning, I thought, "This woman is totally insane." My perspective didn't change much as I read the book. But my respect for Torre as a human being increased with each chapter.
What is the secret to accessing personal power? How does one go beyond fear and self-doubt to triumph in the end? Where does the feeling of power really come from? And how can a person find it for him or herself?
The benefits of comprehending what an unconditional love means and implementing it in our everyday life seems to be significant, not only to us but also to whomever and whatever we interact with. So let's start the process and see it for yourself.
Remember, feelings that are buried alive do not die but try. When I was doing my own deep emotional healing, I learned that I had layers of these buried emotions. I started with the basic and went deeper so as not to overwhelm myself.
Understand that you can be an inspiration to others, no matter what you feel you have or have not achieved. Even if you feel that you have not yet reached the endpoint, and even if you feel like you have reached a low point, you have the ability to inspire.
As Mother's Day approaches, I am humbled by these lessons of partnership, as well as those of parenthood -- the privilege of birthing your best teacher, seeing your clearest mirror, and walking beside your greatest reminder for a lifetime.
To achieve self-actualization, when you conquer one thing, you must move on to the next. Self-actualization does not require any tricks or tools. To reach this level, you need only to accept who you are and then take the steps necessary to becoming the best version of you that you can be.

Happy Valentine's Day! Do those words make you shudder? Whether or not you belong to the 50 percent of the American population that is unmarried, it very well may. Like me, you may get turned off by the gluttonous commercialism of the occasion.
We are in a time of massive, technology-driven, transformational change, pregnant with opportunity. Realize it or not, we have an unprecedented ability to create new products, new services, new markets, and new careers.
Self actualized people have a healthy relationship with reality and are more comfortable with it and do not deny it. They accept the good and bad as parts of the same spectrum where one is in balance and the other out of balance.
