One of my new favorite questions at the moment is: Is It True?? This one little question can bust open a whole new line of thinking and reveal so many OTHER options that might be available you.

Divorce comes in many shapes and sizes. Just read all the articles on this site and you can see that everyone has their own experiences and issues with divorce. One thing that can be a big issue in divorce is who gets the religion. If you and your spouse came from two different religions when you got married, chances are you picked one and that was how you raised your children.

Your Essence is your true, beautiful, glorious, magnificent self. It is what is most attractive to men. When you shine, men notice. You have the ability to make your Essence shine more brightly. That, more than anything will effect your energy.

For as long as there have been men, women, and relationships, there has been jealousy—the fear of losing the person you love to a rival.

So you know you're not interested in 'serious'. Maybe you've recently divorced, or gone through a break up. Or maybe you're simply focused on other aspects of your life right now. Nonetheless, some part of you is craving sex. BIG time. And you're considering having a casual sexual relationship (or two...or five) cause otherwise, you swear you just might go insane.
Excerpts from Marianne Williamson's Our Greatest Fear eloquently creates the template for generating the life of your dreams! "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
