In "Love Games, Part 1," I mentioned the various things a woman should consider in place of pouting to tear her man away from his video game. For instance, get dolled up and venture out. I should mention that sometimes a man really needs his space. Allowing him to have his man-time will only make him miss you afterwards...in most cases. But if your man always needs alone time, or you’re suffering from ‘I need you to more spend time with me or else,’ then consider the following.
So you and your mate have been together for awhile now and it seems to you that intimacy and passion are dead and lifeless? Perhaps you look back to your early years together and wistfully remember when time spent together with your partner seemed alive and even red hot. Or it might be that your intimacy has never felt as close as you'd like. Maybe you've always longed for a spicier and more connected relationship. There are varying levels of intimacy in love relationships or marriages.
For divorce to be a collaborative and respectful process, the couple must be prepared to separate their lives on all levels — legally, practically, and emotionally. To do this, each person must face their own divorce dilemma by answering the following eight questions:
If your love life seems stuck in rut, you might want to consider how you've been spending your time -- if you're really committed to changing it for the better. Let's face it, we all have habits we know we should to change, whether watching too much TV, shopping for what we don't need or eating too much. We have things we do that we wish we didn't or things we don't do that we wish we did. All these distract you from taking the steps you need to change your stagnant love life.
Spring is around the corner and many people may consider doing a little spring cleaning at home. This can bring about a wonderful sense of excitement and a fresh burst of energy as we emerge from winter. For many people, spring means much warmer temperatures and a chance to finally open the windows again! This lets the stale air out and allows the new crisp air to come in. Now, I want you to consider how not only doing a spring cleaning, but a spring de-cluttering will allow the energy to flow more easily throughout not only your home, but throughout your physical body.
"Juliette 'Daisy' Gordon Low assembled 18 girls from Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1912, for a local Girl Scout meeting. She believed that all girls should be given the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, and spiritually."
Here’s my dream: to inspire spiritual, single women to step into their power, speak their truth and live the life of their dreams with their soulmate by their side. Why do you want to find your soulmate? Why do you want to live the life of your dreams?Are you chasing the “paper” (just the guy, the money, the hot body, the next job promotion) or are you going for fulfillment, joy, peace, self-love- your dreams?
How often have you asked a question of or made a statement to a partner, co-worker, friend or relative at a time when you already knew they are angry or withdrawn? Then, when they are predictably angry, closed or defensive, you feel upset by their response. Why did you put yourself in the line of fire? What are you hoping to gain by asking a question or making a statement when you already know they are closed?
In my clinical experience, I've encountered many clients who are afraid to admit they’re wrong. This comes from a culture of blaming and accusing—where one's early family may have picked a “culprit” when something went wrong, and focused on blame, rather than on fixing the problem and healing the hurt. People with such experiences approach every situation as if they're on trial, and they compulsively try to convince everyone they're not guilty. They have no patterns to follow for apology and forgiveness.
