When I do readings with men who wish that they could get a little more action from their mates in the bedroom, some kiddingly say, “Isn’t there a viagra for women?” And ladies, you don’t get off so easy.

Valentine's Day is coming, like it does every year! A day that leaves some singles singin’ the blues while others go about their day pretending like it doesn’t even exist. It’s a day that some relish and others despise. All in all, Valentine’s Day sets the expectation that your relationship status defines who you are. I would encourage you to be mindful that you are not defined by your relationship status, it's certainly not your identity. As you read this article, I hope to impart a more open and positive way to embrace Valentine’s Day with grace and ease.

The typical thoughts around this day involve love, happiness, hearts, flowers, bliss, romance, and of course, chocolate ;-) Those who have a partner may plan a romantic evening or feel compelled to buy a card or flowers. Those who are single or in a strained relationship may feel a sense of loneliness or an ache in their heart. Perhaps, they just think all the hearts and flowers are a bunch of hooey. In fact, within relationships certain expectations of what one should do on Valentine's Day can create hurt feelings, anger or maybe even a fight.

AOL reports that February 13th is becoming just as busy for florists, restaurants and others because it's the day men take out their mistresses. In this situation, everyone loses.
I would like to share with you a few of the sections in an upcoming book called Cultivating Character.

Please feel free to pass this article or ezine on to others who would enjoy it. Character is the set of qualities that make somebody distinctive.
“Hello”, I said in a sweet voice. Through the phone, I hear: “Listen sweetie, my name is Dan. We must do this quickly, my wife is out with the kids and I have only a few minutes. I want to tell you something I did. I have a confession to make.” I said, “Sure, you can tell me anything,” and I knew this was going to get very interesting very quickly.
This time of year we are reminded to express our love to that one special person in our lives.
