It’s very difficult to climb a flight of stairs, let alone the steep career ladder with a jealous partner clinging to your skirt, while, dragging you down. I had always felt lucky to have a supportive husband by my side as I continue to build my career, but my gratitude catapulted a few weeks ago when I witnessed, what was nothing short of a minor travesty of common sense and sanity.
Strength and Weakness – Become Stronger in Weak Places As a business owner, parent educator, parent and volunteer in the community, I have had an opportunity to see strengths and weakness in many people. Our children have had sports coaches who made them feel great about themselves whether they won or lost the game. Coaches Change Lives
With Groundhog Day here, my mind has turned to the elusive do-over. The 1993 Bill Murray flick named for February 2nd has to be one of my all-time favorite, watch-it-every-time-it's-on movies. For those who haven't seen it (and really, what kind of carpet are you living under? Netflix it immediately), the movie's plot centers around a crotchety guy named Phil Conners, played by Murray. Phil is forced to endure the same day over and over until he gets it "right."
Many pop culture examples point to the external "breakovers" women engage in following a breakup. Is there really something to this? Can cutting our hair or buying a new outfit help us get to a place of being "over" an ex?
Breaking up is hard to do. Even when they guy you're breaking up with was never technically your boyfriend. This Valentine's Day, show love to yourself by making the decision to move on. Here are 7 days, and 7 ways, to get over your ex.
When you are in a committed relationship, Valentine's Day is the most important day of the entire year. You should show your undying love for each other and celebrate the magnificent connection that you have through spending large amounts of money on flowers, candy and jewelry. You should be planning the entire day's event months in advance, and spending a huge amount of time on making sure that each and every detail is taken care of.
There is a lot of controversy swirling around Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, as some speculate that it was all a fluke for TV ratings. Although I do believe that having the show added pressure to her decision to get married, I do not believe that she married Kris for ratings.

Kim Kardashian committed several “DIVA Don’ts” that we can all learn from so to avoid repeating the same fate!
At one point or another we have been in a relationship or in love with a man who wasn’t quite feeling the same way in return. His friends or family would come around only for him to introduce you as his “friend” Tracey or Keisha or what ever your name happens to be. Although you two may be having sex, you never get the title of “girlfriend” no matter how hard you try to win his heart over and prove that you are the perfect girl for him.
We all deserve a red-hot relationship with lasting love, and we typically find it through the dating process. I encourage single men and women to get to know many potential love matches simultaneously--on platonic levels--until you sort through mis-matches and choose your most compatible match for a serious relationship. When you meet someone you view as a potential love match, what's the top question to ask them? Are you dating anyone?
About one in five teenagers has a diagnosable mental health issue. Yet by the age of 25, those number drop dramatically. Have we gone too far in labeling normal teenage attitudes and behaviors as mental illness? Has our society come to accept depression, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder and even substance abuse among teens as normal?
