Loving Your Body, Loving Yourself

I received this email from a woman: "My issue is I hate the way my body looks. I have cellulite (dimply ugly looking skin), and I feel ugly when I look at it. I have tried to get a simple mindset that I can practice everyday but I end up isolating myself from social events where I have to wear summer clothing.

National Hugging Day: 7 Step Plan To Get More Hugs

"Hugs are what I miss the most." A deep sigh followed by a painful silence. Not knowing the frail little lady in front of me, I was not sure what to say.

Why It's Important To Be Nice

Someone famous once said, "It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." That's easy to remember when life is good, but it's more important to remember when you're faced with a challenge, especially when that challenge is in your romantic relationship, when the tendency is to shut down or go on the attack.
