I would like to talk on a myth I hear often and that is the myth of Calories In vs Calories Out = Weight Loss. This one is tricky because, yes, if you eat excessively, you will gain weight, that is not a myth...however, the Calories in vs Calories out is deceptive! We are made up of far more than just calories.
Do these thoughts come up for you (or some version of them)? - I should lose weight and have a perfectly fit and toned body before I attract my beloved into my life. - I should be more financially stable or have a certain level of income before I manifest my soulmate - I should just have myself more together before he shows up.
Ending a relationship is heartbreaking. Whether it's a mutual decision or one-sided, navigating life without your partner, especially if you've been together for years, can be very difficult. You will most likely find yourself thinking of him, wishing things could be different, wondering if you made the right decision or hoping that he will call. Here are 5 ways to navigate your life without him.
Many people ask me if online dating is risky. I explain that the risks of online dating are significantly diminished by built-in safeguards and guidelines used in most online dating sites. For example, you create a screen name to protect your identity, and you don’t reveal your private contact information until you’ve emailed or chatted by video, talked on the phone and met for coffee in a public place.
Sometimes I like to remind people that if you want someone to get better then try building him or her up rather than tearing him or her down. The idea of helping ourselves or others get better by trying to improve or correct our weaknesses is deeply ingrained. Research, however, has clearly demonstrated that the way to achieve greatness is by building on strengths, not by improving weaknesses. This goes against our instincts but it is really important information for yourself and your marriage.
Alone, scared and confused. These words could be used to describe a lost child, but in this case, they’re not. They are the very real and daily feelings of a woman at midlife who is questioning her sexuality. For those of you who’ve been there, this may take you back to a place you’d rather not visit. For many others, it represents the beginning of a totally new and ultimately joyful journey—one of living the life you were meant to and being open and honest about yourself, maybe for the first time.
You may want to dance like nobody’s watching but eat like you may end up on YouTube. Have you ever pulled up to a traffic light - wiping Big Mac sauce from your cheek – only to see a snot-nosed kid in the backseat of your Honda laughing at you while you lick the fallen pickle from your cleavage?
Emotional abuse is as dangerous as physical abuse, and another reason for divorce. It is more difficult to prove, more difficult to talk with the kids as a reason for leaving, but no less destructive in the havoc it causes in the family. Emotional abuse is also much easier to deny and rationalize which is why many people stay in the relationship too long. The longer you are exposed to emotional abuse, the more harmful it becomes, and the deeper it affects your confidence as well as your self-esteem.
I am almost done putting my dating program together and it's pretty exciting! All of these years of thinking and trying different things in my own life and helping others to find and maintain healthy relationships is flowing out of my head and onto paper more easily than I imagined. I've been thinking of doing this for years but never thought I had enough time and didn't trust I could put it all together. I hired an assistant and she has been incredibly helpful by keeping me on task and adding her own ideas and thoughts.
