In cases of excessive exercising, a person treats their own body as an object rather than as a subject (i.e., they experience themselves as "you" instead of "I"). This objectification of the self allows one to feel a sense of control regarding some aspect of oneself, or one's relationships with others, that otherwise seems out of control.
I probably won’t surprise any of you when I say we have limiting beliefs that our petty tyrant reminds us of on a regular basis. While there is wisdom in choosing our battles, letting people walk all over us will eventually backfire in one way or another taking its toll on our health and our relationships when our petty tyrant keeps us in her grip of fear and forever behaving like the "Good Girl." Too Nice For Her Own Good!
When you find your mate, the world suddenly seems right. You are loved, your love is received. You believe that this is the absolutely best way to live. Warning!

In today's digital age, complete sentences and properly spelled words are disappearing at an alarming rate only matched by the melting polar ice caps. Complete thoughts have been condensed down to 140 characters or less, emoticons have replaced emotions and love letters have morphed into email.
Avoiding the ‘money chat’ prior to saying ‘I do’, is an accident waiting to happen. At that intersection of money and truth, the clock is ticking; that avoidance will control every decision you make in that marriage. The decision to get married is huge, topped only by the decision to have a baby. Getting married becomes legal from the get-go; a blood test is required and a license and a third party to perform the ceremony. Humph! What is this telling us?
It's happened to the best of us. A friend flakes on you, a coworker fails to make it to happy hour or a sibling simply forgets you had plans. When it comes to people we deal with on a day to day to basis, it can be easier to forgive and forget when it comes to being stood up. But what happens when you are stood up by someone on a first date? Do you allow them the same forgiving courtesy as your friends or do you hold them to a higher standard that comes with sharper penalties?

This back-to-school time is a special one for me. Our oldest child is starting Kindergarten. While I have spent years talking to parents about how to help them get their children ready for school, this year, I am living it right along with millions of other parents. I find myself feeling excited, sad, scared, worried, eager, and confused. Can you relate to any of that? I am pretty sure our daughter feels all those emotions as well. So, the questions becomes, how do we deal with all this transition?
I am going to share with you my thoughts on getting over divorce and dating after divorce. As my mentor, T. Harv Eker says, "Don't believe anything I say". And why is that? Because I can only speak from my experience. Nothing I am going to say here is right or wrong, true or false. However, I believe my experience can help you. After spending the majority of my adult life either dating or married to this man, and having two children with him, we divorced. The specifics of why are not important.

We need to own it and embrace it and then that same energy can start moving through our whole body and our whole being.
