Is he (or she) being so jealous, that it's not right and it's not fair? Here are 5 signs to watch out for... #1. Is he calling you all the time and checking up on you? Does he always ask who are you talking to and where are you going?
Has your comfort zone become your prison? Taking time to reflect on your life right now can give you the answer. Knowing yourself is the first step in bursting out of your prison. I know there are many schools of thought on this. One is to take baby steps, just put your toe over the zone and see how it feels. If it doesn't feel good then go back to yourself imposed prison!
Exercise. For most people, the word conjures up unpleasant thoughts and feelings because of past experiences when they struggled with exercise or got hurt.

I learned something this week that completely rocked my world: when you apply eyeliner, you should start from the inside of your lid, not the outside. Did you know that? I’m 52 years old, and for my entire life I’ve been doing it wrong. No wonder it was always a struggle! I was never able to create that smooth line I saw on other women. Over the years I spent hundreds of dollars on varying brands and tried using Q-tips and other devices; but despite my constant efforts, it never worked. I was always starting from the outside.
For the most part, the sex industry tries its best to stay out of the public eye, but every so often something happens to thrust the porn industry into the forefront of public conversation and news media.

Speaking what is true for us in our relationships takes courage and takes practice. To do this we must have clarity about who we really are, what is important to us and why. In order to have the full experience of higher consciousness in your relationships you need to be able to speak your truth to the people you interact with, especially those on the romantic front. The next natural step in this process is to learn how to communicate your truth to other people in a way they can hear.
Good news, moms! The new school year is underway! The time that parents celebrate and kids dread. There are so many new things happening this time of year that many kids feel a bit overwhelmed. New teachers, new schools, new friends…it's a lot! But in my house, that's not all that's new! With each new school year comes a new level of responsibility for my kids. "I'm one of the big kids, now!"
One key mindset that can help you put your guilt-ridden experience behind you is to explore the idea that there are no mistakes. Everything we do creates an opportunity for learning, and one of our main objectives — if not the only objective — here on earth is to learn. Every experience creates one of two outcomes: an opportunity to celebrate or an opportunity to learn (which, in my opinion, is also cause for celebration).
In recent years, much has been written and said about the current generation of young adults and your inflated sense of entitlement. You feel that the world should be handed to you on a silver platter and that your every desire should be accommodated and honored. You deserve every prize that life has to offer. And you’ve been told repeatedly that this entitlement mentality is a bad thing. I disagree.
