Facebook is a beautiful thing, but seeing a highly unflattering photo of yourself popping up in your news feed (and everyone else's) is not. Should you immediately untag the photos that put you in a bad light?
When was the last time you felt confident? Today? Yesterday? Can you even remember? There is a confidence crisis among women these days, especially in the workplace. And, of course, we all know that what happens at work affects the rest of our lives. Still, women are lacking the confidence to speak up, put forward their two cents, or be acknowledged for a job well done. Does this sound familiar to you? At first the idea seemed foreign to me. Then, I started reflecting on the women in my life and realized that yes, in fact, nearly all of my conversations among friends and associates carry within them the undercurrent of lacking the self-assurance to boldly live their lives. Who knew?!

You know you're confident. Go on and admit it. When you think of yourself and your confidence, you're being honest when you say, "Oh yeah, I'm confident." Oh, just a second. You didn't, did you? Just tell a little fib? You're really not so confident as you tell others? Oh well, that’s okay since we all do it: stretch the truth, that is. However, if you can’t be candid with yourself, then with whom can you be candid?
There are many aspects to attraction. There's the physical and there's the mental. So let's take a look at the physical. You probably have a certain body type in a man that you are attracted to — correct? He must be tall, dark and handsome. Sound familiar? Well, take a good look next time you are out. You may notice that there are many, many men that don't fit this bill ... and it's the same for women.
I recently returned from a trip to Italy and I was captivated at how comfortable women are with their bodies, every curve, every hair strand, every toe nail. They embrace the figure they were born with (no matter the shape or size) and work every body part to their advantage. They are at ease with the fact that men love to look at women and women love to be admired by men. In fact, male and female courtship is a regular discussion at the dinner table.
Being a sensually empowered woman means that you are the keeper of your own mojo. It is that sense of self-confidence, self-esteem and sex appeal stemming from the core of your being and spiraling outward, enchanting every person around you. Sometimes we are in the flow, feeling good and looking our best. Other times we may feel like hiding under a mask, lacking self-esteem and poise. So how do we sustain our mojo and live life in balance?
This is the first in a series of articles sharing my 5 Keys to Finding Hope and Finding Him. This was the topic of my free telecall this week and of my upcoming 8-part telecourse starting October 17. A single man I know once said, "If a woman doesn't seem to love herself, why should I love her?" That makes sense. Keep in mind that: • The way you treat yourself is how others will treat you. • What you expect from people is what you will receive.
It warms my heart that after having their engagement unceremoniously broken off by Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, and suffering the humiliation of an ill-timed wedding photo shoot, Kristin Cavallari is doing so well.

The holiday season is almost here. It seems like yesterday we were making our New Year’s resolutions for 2011: to lose weight, maybe, or get out of debt, find a better job, find love. Was 2011 the year all your romantic dreams came true? Or do you look back on the year with regret? Was it full of exciting, intelligent men or missed opportunities? Laughter and genuine connections or awkward situations? Dates that make you cringe even now?
When you are dating and want to find love, wouldn’t it be great to have a magic mirror where you could see your future with that person? You wouldn’t have to guess about whether or not you would have a “Happily Ever After”. It would play out before you in that magic mirror. Or what about a crystal ball? You could take your date to a gypsy and she could sit you down and let you know whether or not you should even bother ordering dessert.
Years ago there was a very attractive woman on a talk show that was discussing the many men she was dating. She was pitted up against a group of women that found her to be somewhat of a “tart” since she was actively dating more than one man at a time. This woman appeared to be confident, sexy, and spoke highly of the men she was dating. In fact, she even said that she didn’t have sex with all of the men. She was simply enjoying the opportunity to date, to meet new people, and to have new experiences.
The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation ~Thoreau If you have eyes to see, you’ll see it everywhere. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear it. Most times, logging into Facebook provides an overwhelming dose of it. Desperation. It looks a lot like the person who can’t wait for the weekend. It sounds like the person who walks into the office saying “I hate Monday!!”. It’s the person who hates their job but needs the money.
Go ahead, be sexy at work. Be flirtatious. It may seem like it sets feminism back 1,000 years to say it, but the fact is, in a male-dominated industry, one of the smartest things a woman can do is use her feminine wiles to rise to the top.
What’s your biggest flaw? I’ve got more than a few. Plenty, actually. As tempting as it might be to list them out right here for the entire world to see (oh wait, actually, that’s not tempting at all), I’ll stick to just one. I am, quite often, a complete and utter ditz.
