Ever met your dream man at a local bar? Ha! Or ran into your Prince Charming at the grocery store? Waiting for the bus? No? Not even doing some banking? No? Well neither have I. As a busy business professional, it’s difficult to meet someone. And have the time to connect and get to know them. We are generally absorbed in tending to the needs of others…. family, employees, bosses, clients; there is often no room for a dating life.
Time. Sometimes we use it wisely. Sometimes we waste it. But what is TIME anyway? Philosophers think the passage of time is actually an ILLUSION… that only the *present* is real. Physicists see time as a mathematical dimension. And the rest of us? We see it as something that keeps on marching… no matter what you do with it. Can’t stop it. Can’t slow it. And can’t make MORE of it!! The result? We can chase it, stop it and lose it, but NEVER have enough of it. WE NEED MORE TIME!!! Things pile up, life become chaotic… what’s the solution??
It’s a sunny day outside, not many clouds in the sky… temperature is *perfect*, wind is just right breezy but not gusting, and There. You. Are! Sitting in your living room, surfing the Internet or on an iphone app to check the weather?? Good grief Charlie Brown! What on earth are you doing? Why don’t […]
It is always hard to watch a friend self-destruct. From smoking to drugs, dating jerks to loving and marrying the completely wrong guy…. to even WORSE….inflicting physical pain on themselves. It’s hard to watch, and harder still to watch and do NOTHING. Don’t you just wish you could smack them on the forehead and just snap them out of it?
So you just found out your partner cheated on you, what do you do? If you are Carrie Underwood, you trash his car. But that’s not really the best response…. So what DO you do? It a horrible realization… you feel angry, betrayed.. BEWILDERED, upset, bitter, disappointed, and sad all at the same time. And sometimes, if you’ve suspected it for a while, a little relieved that you are not just a jealous person… you are an INTUITIVE person. Being cheated on is a crushing blow to any woman… to the ego… to your self confidence, and to your ability to trust.
Nothing compares to a friendship between women. Only a woman can relate to the pangs of menstrual cramps, the struggle to not eat your feelings, and offer resolutions rather than criticism. No man, regardless of how much he loves you, can relate to the surreal joy of finding the perfect dress or succeeding at something you once thought impossible. Female coworkers are the only ones who get the challenges of working and competing with men on their own turf. Women are warm, intuitive, analytical and don’t secretly hope to get in your pants one day. And a BFF is the best woman of all because she loves you at your lowest points… and celebrates you at your highest points.
It seems like such a dirty word, and just saying it makes you want to take a shower and wash it away from your oh so clean successful self! The word itself is loaded with a feeling of tense rejection and negativity and a sense of dread. But really, have you ever stopped to think that maybe, just maybe failure is the key to success?
The holy grail of the relationship has to be the “Friend with Benefits”. I mean, friends are the best. They care for you, look out for you, have fun with you, they tell you when you are doing something dumb in a way that is funny and cute to take the edge off and of course they forgive you when you make a mistake in life. Plus who doesn’t like a good hard benefit sometimes? Yeah baby….
n times of moral chaos, politics and money can easily sway people. However, no amount of power or money will be able to move a person with a strong backbone of principles.
Certain realities exist today that make many of us women wonder if getting married is really right for us. Although this may seem depressing, it’s true, and before we walk down that aisle, we should really stop and consider what we want out of life and love.
