  • Babies' brains show that social skills linked to second language learning

    Relationships News -- ScienceDaily

    Babies learn language best by interacting with people rather than passively through a video or audio recording. But it's been unclear what aspects of social interactions make them so important for learning. New findings demonstrate for the first time that an early social behavior called gaze shifting is linked to infants' ability to learn new language sounds.

    By:  Lisa Hayes Remember about a decade ago when Oprah said that keeping a Gratitude Journal transformed her life? Yeah, I do too. We all ran out and bought shiny new journals with inspirational sayings on them and started logging all the beauty in our lives.  Not too surprisingly, millions of women started seeing more beauty and fabulousness in their lives. When I say the words Gratitude Journal, I never have to explain it. Everyone knows what it is, and most women either keep one or say something like, “I really liked doing that.  I should get back to it.” Gratitude is one of the…

    Dear Wendy
    Dear Wendy
    27 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    Last Friday my husband and I and a group of his friends went for a weekend getaway. We were all having a good time and, as the night went on, people kept dropping out of the group, finally leaving just me, my husband, and one other male friend. We had all been drinking heavily that day and were staying at the same hotel. We ordered some food and went back to our (my husband’s and my) hotel room to eat. My husband ended up passing out as soon as he finished eating his food. I continued eating and talking to his friend. Within minutes of my husband passing out, his friend started hitting on…
  • 7 “Rules” to Write the Perfect Romantic Love Letter (in about 15 minutes)

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:27 pm
    When it comes to adding some sizzle to your marriage, nothing beats a good old-fashioned love letter. Sure, you can buy flowers, candy or go out for a nice dinner. Those kinds of borderline-cliche gifts tend to be less personalized and their effects fade over time. A love letter, however, is the gift that comes straight from your heart, and is one they will keep and cherish forever. Why? Nothing says “I love you forever” to your spouse like taking time out of your day, putting pen to paper, and crafting the words of your very soul. In terms of romantic rewards, the author of a romantic…

    23 Jul 2015 | 5:38 am
    People who grew up in a working class family are more satisfied in later life than those from a higher class background according to new research. The study also found that English people who climb the social ladder are more content and happy when they get older than people in the States who are similarly upwardly mobile. The research sought to find out whether social mobility makes people happier in later life while taking into account people’s living conditions.
  • Implicit bias against lesbians, gays decreasing across demographic groups, study shows

    23 Jul 2015 | 5:37 am
    The U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling legalizing marriage between same-sex couples in all 50 states follows on the heels of national polls showing rapid cultural changes in attitudes toward lesbian and gay people. A new study confirms this, showing that not only are Americans' conscious and unconscious biases against lesbian women and gay men decreasing across all demographic groups, but the trend also appears to be accelerating. The online study of more than 500,000 people showed that women, as well as white, Hispanic, liberal and younger people, showed the greatest reductions in bias.

    Life is a wild ride, hang on and hold tight. The bumps in the road, seem like mountains at times, yet what you believe to be calm waters, can stir violently from the unseen. Don’t make more, of what is not there, yet don’t ignore what could be. You never know what will cross your life’s path, you can only attempt to prepare for its arrival.

    Vulnerable and eager in the early days of September, 2011, I was looking for someone to trust and to befriend, someone that I could shed all my secrets to, someone who could come with me to compare dresses out shopping, someone who was on the same wave length as me. And I found you; quickly and wholeheartedly you introduced yourself into the void in my life. Dear Ruth, Over the last year or so, I’ve really changed; I don’t think I’m even the same person that you used to know and you might not even recognise me. It’s been about three years since we last spoke and this…

There’s hot chemistry there that I can smell in the air. I never knew that. I know she has doubts about herself – self-defeating things. But every day I wake up beside her, I see something more than I did the day before. She has an everlasting beauty that fills me with content, peace, and uncontrollable desire. I want her all the time, and not just in a woo-hoo kind of way. I just want her beside me, pressed against me, in my…

I stopped all interaction with her and haven't seen or spoke with her since the beginning of March. Fast forward to today...I received a gift card from one of my customers to the place where this girl works so I decided to use it. I called to place a to go order and she answered.

    First of all, I love my wife very much. She is the person I want to be with for the rest of my life. BUT, not like this. Since we have been together (9 years), she has never held a job longer than a few months. When we first started dating she was fired from her job, after that she has had a few jobs for short periods of time (6 months was the longest I believe, all in the same field). Granted, we agreed that she would stay home while our kids were very young to raise them but they are now 6 and 8. About 2 years ago she decided she wanted to go back to school to get her Masters degree to…

It was apparent that my wife used the laptop the day after she returned. She clearly indicated that she met a man on the trip and that she was infatuated with him. She gave this man her telephone # and was missing him. She made searches about how to tell if a man is into you or only into you for sex. She researched younger men/ older women relationships. She missed her military man and explored the benefits of…

    Image Credit: hahahu.tv People like to cut off from their everyday expenses as much as possible. That is why, when it comes to home improvement, Do-it-yourself has somehow become a trend and a motto for most people. This is of course a good way to go. When you do things yourself, you get to do it just the way you want it to go. You get to adjust, change your plans along the way, be spontaneous about what to add or omit, and do a lot more. Doing things yourself also makes you feel that you are indeed the owner of the place. Your touches and your techniques, splashed out all across the areas of…

    When a company announces the development of a new concept car for one of their popular lines of vehicles, this is usually an exciting time for car aficionados and hobbyists alike. While some concept cars are never built (probably because there is a flaw in their design or the design itself is too extravagant and impossible to build and produce), their design, styling cues, and technological and engineering attributes and features are oftentimes used for upcoming new models. The same goes for people who offer wedding car services. Whenever there’s a brand new car out in the market, a lot of…

    While I do love a good wedding ceremony, I also have a thing for good, crazy fun. So, when a friend of mine shared an article about some of the craziest and weirdest wedding celebrations and traditions all over the world, I realized that I just had to go on a trip to experience it firsthand! The list my friend gave me was a long one, but I decided on choosing the top three wedding celebrations which I personally think are just plain crazy and weird. Of course, I had to make a lot of preparations on my own. Saving money was the first thing on my mind, so I had to cut back on useless expenses.

    Have you heard the commencement speech given several years ago by novelist David Foster Wallace to Kenyon College? There’s a great Youtube video that uses excerpts from it, called This is Water. It is a brilliant speech that encourages us all to stop presuming we know what everyone’s motives are, to stop putting ourselves and our own outrage in the middle of everything so that we can maybe understand someone else’s story.

  • A Guardian Of Your Spouse’s Solitude

    Corey
    20 Jul 2015 | 6:21 am
    One of my clients sent me this quote. It’s a great way to frame what growing up in marriage can look like. The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude, and thus they show each other the greatest possible trust. A merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development. But once the realization is…

Taking ownership, accepting and taking responsibility for your attitude and actions. Below the line: Blame, Excuses and Denial. Not taking responsibility, not accepting your responsibilities and actions, and blaming others. Above the line is the mindset of champions – Row your boat where YOU want it to go. This is growing up in marriage! Below the line is the victim mentality – Make your bed and lie in it. Where are you? Above the…

Insurance companies will only reimburse those institutions that follow the 12-step model of Alcoholics Anonymous. If you have known anyone that has gone to a substance abuse treatment facility; you will often hear the gripe that they are being forced to partake in the 12-step model of recovery. This means joining AA or NA which for some just isn't a good fit. In many cases they are told this is the only way to truly recover. This narrow approach has failed many. Forcing an addict to do anything can be a recipe for…

With the advent of the internet, there arose an enormous amount of opportunity for romance, love, friendship, and excitement – all in the past decade alone.

    When dating, women use intuition to help them see if the man they’re seeing is “The One.” Here are the rules they go by. Some women opt to date around before they settle down, but once they do, they start looking for different things in a man. They will still be attracted to the same things like looks, personality and other traits, but they won’t settle for good reviews on those alone. They will look deeper and further into a man’s whole repertoire. Is he a good person? Will he make a good husband? They won’t ask this outright, but they do have ways to find out. How women check…

    As they walked down the courthouse steps, at the same time, but not really together, he looked over at her.  Her hair was drawn back in a ponytail. Her green eyes were glistening in the sun because they were full of tears she was trying to hold back. He reached out to her, wanting to give her one last hug, but he knew she wouldn’t lean into him the way she had so many times before. So he simply touched her arm. He touched her tenderly, and in that moment he wondered if he’d touched her that way more often if they’d be where they were today. It was a question that would haunt him every…

That means things like paying the bills, rocking my self care, and doing my alignment practices daily. For me, (and for you, in case you’re wondering), when I get loose around the edges with any…

So, not too surprisingly, our marriage had some significant conflict.  In fact, to be more specific I was miserable, we both were.    Unfortunately we stayed in that relationship and stayed miserable for longer than by my standards today made any sense at all. We told ourselves we were staying together for our son.  The truth was we stayed together way longer than what was good for our son. I knew our marriage was…

    4 Jul 2015 | 12:15 pm
    Dating a jerk? How to know? It may seem obvious when a guy you’re dating might be a jerk — a rude, selfish boor lacking in even the most basic of manners. However, some jerks are much more subtle, and only reveal their true selves when alone with you or in certain contexts.  It can be difficult to tell if you’re dealing with someone who is angry, honest, or just a garden variety jerk. That said, the jerk has a few tell-tales signs which are evident in much of his behavior. Over the years of dealing with a variety of jerks, I’ve found that these signs are common to…

Tensions have always run high between Amber Rose and the Kardashians as Amber’s relationship with Kanye West ended in part due to Kanye’s involvement with the eldest sibling, Kim Kardashian.

Her husband, very wisely, restricts his abusive…

There are lots of people that can go out to a casino and enjoy the fun in gambling whether they win or lose. However, there are other individuals who over the course of time develop an addiction to gambling that can ultimately tear apart their lives. From the outside looking in, it seems as if a person should be able to control their actions – especially when the consequences are severe. Be that as it may, compulsive gambling and/or addiction are progressive and…

I’ll hit a couple of places we should recognise scarcity the next few days. Today, money. When I was growing up, most people who were willing to work too hard and too many hours could make plenty of money. This is still true for some in some places, but it’s less common than it used to be. (Not that it’s wise to work too hard and too many hours for long periods of time.) As a society, I don’t think we’ve caught up…

    When I was in high school, my friends and I often said, “What it is, what it was, what it will never be.” I was reminded of this recently when Andrew (of Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart) said something about the things that will never be. Andrew is terminally ill, so he is very aware of things that will never be. However, I think it’s a good idea for all of us to be aware of what will never be.  The Bible tells us “Hope deferred makes the heart sick”. [Pro 13:12a ESV] This makes hoping for things that can never happen bad because it’s setting ourselves up…

It’s also a great for early morning, late night, or middle of the night (if you’re both into that) sex because it’s slow and easy. You can do this with her fully under the bed covers, so it’s good when it’s cold,  or if she’s uncomfortable with her body. Some women will be fine with starting with this, others will want/need some foreplay…

    Sometimes the best service you can offer is to do nothing at all. She may have a need to do certain things herself, or to do it “her way”. Sometimes it’s not just about it being done her way, she wants to do it herself.  It could be a sense of accomplishment, or doing certain things may calm her down or cheer her up. Ask your wife if there are things she wants or needs to do herself.  Also, let her know if you have things you want or need to do yourself!

    Is your spouse currently dealing with a gambling problem, and you can’t figure out why they’re behaving the way they are? There are lots of people that can go out to a casino and enjoy the fun in gambling whether they win or lose. However, there are other individuals who over the course of time develop an addiction to gambling that can ultimately tear apart their lives. From the outside looking in, it seems as if a person should be able to control their actions – especially when the consequences are severe. Be that as it may, compulsive gambling and/or addiction are progressive and…

    We laughed, we cried, it was better than cats! (and not particularly in that order). Nothing with our family is anything short of an adventure and no parenting moment of mine goes without testing, so it should have been no surprise that when planning a boy’s sweet 16, my own son’s actually, we would end it with so many stories to share.Master Mason decided that he would like to take some friends away for the weekend to celebrate his 16th, in lieu of the huge parties so many people throw. I was pretty happy, because I knew if I did it right, it would also be a lot less money. I…

The movie was very sympathetic towards first wives because of how they were treated by their ex husbands. Each ex-wife then got revenge on her ex husband in different ways. But how is it for second wives? Or the girlfriends after the ex-wife? Is is not always how it plays out in the movies. Secondly, wives or girlfriends after the divorce have had it rough too.

The problem with believing a relationship is meant is that it can be used as an excuse to not end a relationship that is obviously not meant to be. All relationships have their ups and downs, and you should not simply let go of something good for a stupid reason. However, too many women think if a relationship is meant to be, it means they should put up with way too much bullshit, drama and…

    22 Jul 2015 | 4:57 am
    I used to have this boyfriend who was a total prick. But I liked his mum – and every now and then we’d go round his mum’s for dinner and she’d stare at me over the boiled carrots and say, àpropos of nothing, ‘be a clever woman, Kate. Be a strong woman.’ At the time, I found this unsolicited advice baffling. I considered myself wise and strong and utterly without naïvety. As the young do – especially when they’re having sex all the time. With hindsight, however, and the experience of age, I’ve decoded the subtext of her words. ‘Don’t take his shit,’ my boyfriend’s…

The last ‘date’ I went on was for the purposes of reality television – and you already know all about that disaster.

I’m not sure how many there are down there exactly, but at the end of last summer – as I fell out of a taxi one balmy September dawn – I counted nine of the brutes roaming about the street, casually tearing into dustbins, discarded kebabs and small household pets. I tripped over the pavement and scrabbled for door keys at the bottom of my handbag, and they stopped momentarily to appraise me, before turning back, unbothered, to their scavenged feasts.

    When the concept of poverty is discussed, many of us believe that the term “poverty” implies socioeconomic status. For our purposes, the term has more to do with limiting thoughts and beliefs rather than economic resources. When we allow our choices in life to be limited and highly influenced by others both positively and negatively, we have not chosen a consciousness of abundance where we believe that we can truly chart our course in life. Our course would include with a world full of infinite possibilities are abound and come from our intentions and decisions. People that think…

    The more that we are told what to do, the more that we resist and become irritated, frustrated, and simply unhappy. This includes situations involving our boss, spouse, children, friends, and acquaintances in our everyday activities. Many times, we either decide to do the minimum required of us or we complete the request and ruminate about how insensitive the request was to our current situation. When you draw a line in the sand with someone or resist in any way, your resulting emotional state of being is negatively impacted causing you to become in distress. Even though your inner voice is…

    What does it take for a person to be an effective parent? How much work is involved? Many parents start off asking these kinds of questions, which lead to the assumptions and beliefs that parenting is difficult and work. If you truly believe this to be the case, the parenting role will take on these experiences and show you barriers that create difficulty and hard work. What many parents fail to understand is that their emotional well-being plays a paramount role in their ability to parent a child.

He has asked me to write to him, but I still haven’t emailed, sent a care package, or tried to contact him in any way.

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pringles® Summer Jam. It is the summer time and you know what that means? It’s time for concerts, parties and food. We all know I worked in the music business doing marketing for rock bands and I am a huge rocker myself. I love everything music (and musicians too wink, wink)! Music is the soundtrack of our lives. It is there when we are happy and when we are sad. It is a reminder of the best and worst of times. I can remember what song was playing during... Continue Reading

    Kevin
    23 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    This week we’re jumping ahead in the Enneagram to look at the Type 9 Personality. Commonly known as the ‘Peacemakers,’ these are often the hardest personality type to identify simply because they can be so mellow. You might be a Type 9 if you avoid conflict at all costs and tend to procrastinate without really considering the future. These are the people who, when healthy, are able to calm those closest to them, while being a voice of honesty and reason. They can make excellent mediators, and are solid and stable friends. Take a look at this week’s infographic on the Type 9…

    “Experience is the best teacher, and the worst experiences teach the best lessons.” Anurag Prakash Ray Throughout my life experience, I have come to recognise that some of my most valuable life lessons – lessons about who I am and how I relate to others; were not taught in any classroom or lecture theatre, but by reflecting upon my own experiences and in particular, the tough experiences. It is often in examination and dialogue with a trusted friend or counsellor about these experiences, that we understand ourselves more. We learn about our strengths and weaknesses, and the pitfalls we…

    9 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    It is normal for our minds to wander. Whether we are in conversation, at work, or doing day-to-day activities, we have a tendency to think about the past or the future. When we do this, we are more prone to anxiety and depression. By practicing Mindfulness and being present in every situation, science has shown that we will be happier. When does your mind wander, and what do you think about? Next time you find yourself thinking ahead, take a moment and live in the present.

There are few expectations, and it doesn’t take much energy to have them. Yet we all find ourselves craving more.

    FionaBeck
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:57 am
    The idea of finding an intense connection with someone on another continent is incredibly romantic and powerful. It can almost feel like destiny that two souls can find one another in spite of incredible distance. A chance encounter against all the odds. They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder and there is nothing like distance to make you feel truly bonded to someone. However, long distance relationships are also very attractive to a commitment phobic. The built in restrictions and distance can allow them to experience all the positive and romantic aspects of a relationship without…
  • When will he call me?

    FionaBeck
    23 Jun 2015 | 3:11 am
    ‘When will he call me?’ One of the most frequently asked questions that any psychic will hear. Also the most DISEMPOWERING question that anyone could possibly ask. When someone likes you, when they are interested in pursuing a relationship with you, when they want to get reassurance that you feel the same, THEY WILL CALL YOU!! They do NOT play games, go silent, spend time with another woman, make lame excuses about being busy at work, having a sick family member, suffering a bereavement or being stressed. Relationships are about supporting one another through lifes ups and downs.

    We all have dreams, goals and aspirations. Many of these dreams revolve around interpersonal relationships. The desire for love, happiness, a family and security drives us to seek out people and situations that will ultimately lead to this. The important thing to remember is that it takes TIME to establish a solid and stable connection. Problems arise when we become so tired of waiting, so keen to have what we want, that we jump into situations based purely on face value, the exciting potential, the promises and statements that people make when they are keen to impress us and reel us in.

    I love you! Leave me alone! There are many reasons why someone would express undying love for you only to vanish and reject your attempts to contact them. It can save you a lot of time and heartache if you know what you are dealing with. Sometimes it really is a matter of fear. They jumped in too fast, things moved on at a rapid pace and before they had time to process what was happening they found themselves headed for a deep commitment and panicked because they do not feel ready. This may completely contradict their words and actions up to this point, but actions always speak louder and…

    One of the most frequent situations that I encounter in my work is people who seemingly get ‘stuck’ at the stage where a soul connection is confirmed. This often begins with overwhelming emotions, heartbreak, a roller coaster relationship, an immense connection with another person and total confusion as to why this feels as it does and what can be done to ease the pain. It can often be accompanied by signs and indications that this ‘isn’t done’, also known as ‘synchronicity’. Establishing that someone is experiencing a soul, or karmic connection is…

I gripped my best friend’s hand tightly to calm my nerves, and in that moment, I regretted my decision to get on this roller coaster. Until last summer, I had never ridden a roller coaster that went upside down. They scared me too much, but when I went to the King’s Dominion amusement park, my best friend was determined to make me conquer my fears. The good news is that this story did end happily.

    A decade ago, I knew two young women whom I’ll refer to as Molly and Tiffany.  Plenty of guys fawned over Molly, but they overlooked Tiffany, even though she was more attractive than Molly. If you got to know Tiffany, it was apparent that she did not think much of herself. Actually, even if you didn’t know Tiffany, her face and body language advertised how little she thought of herself. Her eyes were often downcast, her smiles lacked energy, and her shoulders were slumped. She asked few questions of others and offered little information about herself. She wore mom jeans, baggy shirts,…

    Kathryn Sill
    22 Jul 2015 | 5:05 am
    If you’ve ever been to Disneyland, then you are probably familiar with the coveted FastPass. The FastPass system allows visitors to insert their resort ticket at an attraction and receive an additional FastPass ticket. The FastPass ticket lists a specific time to return to the popular ride and enter a line separate from the normal line. Thus, it provides a shorter wait time. Guests can visit other attractions all the while knowing their spot in line is secure. If I had it my way, my FastPass would always read a wait time of “zero minutes” so I could constantly enjoy my favorite rides.

    The other day, I was with a friend. As I tried to make conversation with him, I noticed that while he was seated beside me, his mind was miles away, a thousand and one miles away. And just when I was about to ask him what the problem was, he asked, “what are the little things a woman wants?” I shut my mouth for a second as I pondered the reason for him asking. He explained that he and his woman had an argument, and then she blurted something about him not knowing the little things she wanted. Like my friend, most men are ignorant on that one… let’s find out.•Say those four words…
  • Self Love: Accepting Yourself for Whom You Are

    12 Jul 2015 | 4:15 am
    In a world where isolation is detrimental to a happy living, we need each other for co-existence. What others have to say about you becomes somewhat imperative in how you lead your life. There are set standards, mostly unwritten, which we are expected to conform to, regardless of our individual preferences and lifestyles. But when you live your life based on people’s standards, what happens to the real you? There lies a conflict between self love and fitting in.When you look in the mirror, what do you see? A reflection of yourself. In the same light, when people look at you, they see that…

    I wanted to make a quick post to thank all of my readers for their lovely emails, comments, and stories.  I took some time off from writing on my blog, mostly because I needed to take a step away from the energy the twin flame experience takes in your life.  It was time for me to focus on some other things.  I have still been writing though, and I have fresh content and more thoughts and ideas for you in the near future.

    Lola
    5 Oct 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Happy Sunday my friends. I received a couple of emails this week from people struggling with understanding their own Twin Flame experience and asking for advice. While I always preface my replies by saying I am “no expert”, I also started this blog to offer support and encouragement to others, and that I will always do. My conversations with my new friends brought up two topics for discussion: Acceptance and Mediocrity. There are two things that you MUST learn to accept when you are going through a Twin Flame union, or any relationship for that matter. 1. Never accept or allow anyone,…

    Everybody who is dealing with a Twin Flame connection wants to know how you can not only survive, but make it through where you find peace and happiness. The most important thing I want you to know is: IT CAN BE DONE. This video covers some of the ‘darker’ elements of energy and NOT so divine intervention sometimes experienced while working through a genuine OR non genuine Twin Flame Union. These may include the shadow aspect, the opposite polarities,(light and dark) entities, past life attachments, negative thought forms, and false twins. Love & LightLoLa…

    To a mind that is still – The whole Universe surrenders – Lao Tsu Since today is Sunday, and for some is dedicated to honoring their God, family, and themselves – I am not posting about Twin Flames today. Although I have learned to use mantras and meditation during my Twin Flame journey to calm my mind and expand my awareness, this is important for everyone – no matter what journey you are on in life. We all have issues, and we always will. For some just the commute to work alone – or even work itself is enough to drive you insane. For others it may be financial woes,…

  • Is There One Perfect Person For Us?

    21 Jul 2015 | 5:34 pm
    Lately I've been thinking about serious long-term relationships. To be honest with you all, I'm not entirely sure why. It could be because many of my friends are in serious relationships, almost everyone I work with is living with a boyfriend or is engaged, or because I'm watching my ex get serious with someone (which is beyond painful). But regardless of why, I have been thinking about them a lot, and I have been asking myself if I think there is truly one perfect person for each of us. When I think back to my high school boyfriend, Sam, I really think he was right for me at that time…
  • Stay Out of My Dreams!

    18 Jul 2015 | 7:09 pm
    It is no secret that my breakups with Sam and Max were nothing short of torturous. It is still hard for me to express how much pain I felt and how deeply they affected me. I've mentioned that the breakups made me develop severe social media anxiety every time I thought about going online. But, I haven't mention another area of my life that these breakups affected. That area would be sleep. Sleep is essential when going through a breakup. It is the time when your mind can just shut down and when you can escape the world and heartache for a few hours. Throughout the days following my…
  • Do They Hate Me? Why Should I Care?

    14 Jul 2015 | 8:21 am
    After a break up, deleting an ex on social media is a vital step. I advise all my friends to do it and continually tell them it will make them feel less pain. It would be great if I could follow my own advice. When I went through my break up with both Sam and Max I told everyone I was fine seeing them online and it didn't bother me. Obviously that was a lie. Seeing them on social media is probably one of the most excruciating experiences I have ever had to endure. Seeing them post pictures with their new girlfriends and having fun feels like what I imagine taking a bullet would feel like. The…
  • A Moment Of Gratitude

    Hi everyone!  I just wanted to write a short blog sharing my thoughts and thanks on my blogging journey over the past three months!  Every since my break up with Sam three years ago I have been writing my thoughts down as an emotional release. It proved to be the best decision I've ever made for myself. Not only did it help me let out my emotions,  it allowed me to connect with so many others who have gone through similar experiences. On top of that, being able to help others through my blog and experiences has been one of the most rewarding things in my life. I am incredibly…
  • Do Similarities Matter?

    5 Jul 2015 | 2:23 pm
    Today I was on my way to the beach with my mom. We were both excited to have a simple girls day, catch up, and of course do a little gossiping. We got onto the topic of relationships, that is generally where our conversations go lately. We were talking about what I was looking for in a guy, when I begin to look, as well as one of my best friends and her relationship. Lets call her Laura. Laura just moved in with her boyfriend.
