Several years ago I wrote a piece titled 'The Dog Days of Summer.' I didn't really know what that term meant or where it came from. I imagined it meant something about dogs and how hot they got on the hottest days of the year, which led them to seek shade and rest under the nearest tree. After doing a little research I discovered this idiom was referring to a constellation that occurred during the time period between July 3 and August 11. Not at all what I had thought - and a little disappointing!
Kind of a funny concept isn't it! Even I, the author of the above title, must admit, yet it makes me happy to note. I just made it up today as I was Noticing how much joy I get from simply Noticing things, without thoughts of judgment or action mucking up the works. We humans spend much of our time NOT Noticing much of anything. We take in the tasks of the day without noticing what they mean to us. We interact with the people in our lives without noticing who they really are. We partake of entertainment, at times without truly experiencing the moment.
A woman can love a man till death, but if that physical passion combined with mental stimulation, is missing, then she may unknowingly feel unfulfilled until she meets another man who has the passion she never knew she needed.
It happens to everyone. You’re sailing along smoothly in a meaningful relationship and then next thing you know, you find yourself single. Sometimes it’s expected, sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it’s your choice. Sometimes it’s not. Whatever the reason, you’ve recently found yourself single. Now what?
We all have moments when we procrastinate at work. Mars Venus believes, we typically procrastinate when we are stressed out and need to re-energize; we’re a little anxious as we’re figuring out the day’s priorities; or we have a few minutes to kill say before a meeting, between a project and lunch, waiting to talk to a co-worker or it’s almost time to go home. Procrastination and complacency are two blocks any of us can fall prey.
There are literally hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands of ways we can behave that could be considered loving. Yet, it is from where the gesture comes from that distinguishes the loving act from the empty gesture. If your goal is to display your love or affection genuinely, here are my five suggestions.
Women really over estimate who we are. Let me explain. The other day I saw this woman. She grabbed her kid and she said, “God, I miss you so much and I love you!” and just kept kissing the kid. I noticed that she had no ring on her finger. So I started talking to her and I said, “You know, that is so beautiful the way you are with your kid.” “Thank you.” “Single mom?” “Yes.”
We live in a world where there is an overabundance of information about what constitutes good healthy habits and the benefits of healthy habits. We are also aware of habits that are harmful to our health. Most of us have heard that even a small change every day will yield great results over time. So why do we find ourselves in the predicament of inaction?
Here is something very important for us to remember, and especially important to teach the children. . . . Believe in beauty, for the Earth Mother is covered with beauty. Believe in love, for your Earth Mother and Sky Father love you. Believe in magic, and you release your soul from the prison your mind tries to build around it. Above all, don't be afraid, the Great Spirit provides all that is needed. Believe in your medicine.
Dear Dr. Romance: I have been dating this girl for 3 months now but we were talking and going on occasional dates for a good 5 months before we finally made it offical. Now that we are together things have changed. She ignores me when we are around friends and family. When I ask her if she wants to do something or just hang out she always finds an excuse and i end up finding out she went out with her friend at the last second.
