How many times have you dreamed that you could take a second during your day to pamper yourself? Between work and home life pressures it seems we hardly even have time to brush our teeth, let alone sit down to put on a facemask. Yet, women don't realize how easy it is to spoil yourself by doing something as easy as turning on your shower.
Teens who may not otherwise be forthcoming about their emotional drama have a platform where they can over-share. With the popularity of Facebook it can be difficult to determine a true cry of desperation amidst the noise of social networking.

With all the articles about the importance of free play in the lives of our children you may be wondering how to encourage it in your home. Here are some of the best ways to encourage free play in your life with your pre-schooler and school age child, plus a few ways to be a good example by incorporating play into your day. Pre-schoolers 1) Make a fort. Make two forts! Inhabit them with stuffed animals and whoever else is around.

This can be as easy as rolling out craft paper on the floor, putting on an old t-shirt for a smock, some brushes and paints and going to town.

You will fairly quickly start to feel that the topic will never end. You will find yourself drowning in a sea of endless repetitive questions, countless accusations and threats. Your name will be nominated as the favorite person to gossip abouut in your community. All this reflects the truth that affairs are much easier to get into than it is to resolve them within a marriage.
Sometimes you just want to watch a funny movie with a girlfriend and just laugh and laugh and NOT critique the darn thing, y’know?

One funny and/or ridiculous scene after the other, laugh out loud funny.
Relationships have given me great opportunities to get to know more of myself. We cannot discount the relationships that have been a struggle because this is where we can learn about our unhealthy patterns. People can trigger negative feelings of unworthiness and lies that tell us we are not good enough. When we start to walk on egg shells, feel unsafe or uncomfortable our inauthenticity becomes a barrier to love. The freedom of joy, passion,intimacy, trust, and safe love keep relationships alive!
After an affair, deciding to stay together may be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make. You have decided to listen to your heart and not to any of your well meaning friends or relatives who may be telling you to leave. You both want to work on your relationship and are committed to a new monogamy, together.
Studies and research will tell you that couples most often fight about two topics in particular: Sex and money; different ideas of what’s too little, too much or how these issues affect the couple. While these are real struggles that jeopardize the health of a relationship, the gaps that lie between partner needs and how to bridge them still aren’t the real reason why marriage is so darn hard. The answer lies in the “shift.”
I was surprised to find savvy online dating advice in a new action/adventure/comedy/romance "This Means War". The film's testosterone-driven opening sequence shows two of the world's deadliest CIA operatives chasing and beating the bad guys. In a quiet lull after the carnage, the CIA warriors played by Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, show us their personal side. One is a player with no desire to settle down; the other is a divorced dad looking for real love. They are inseparable partners and best friends, until they discover they've fallen in love with the same woman, played by Reese Witherspoon.
