Look at your back right corner, the far right corner of your home. Also go into each room and look at the far right corner in each of the rooms from the door entrance. That is your love and relationship area. Before we talk about love and a new relationship, let’s just take a few minutes to talk about the old relationship.
Feeling that you are the victim of your circumstance in divorce is one of the things that comes up unless you're taking ownership. It's always a two way street, it's like what do you take responsibility for, because it's never just about one person, it's always about the collective, the two, if you're in a partnership or relationship.
Research shows that in reality, women are better than men in financial terms especially when it comes to investing. It's because we don't have a problem following the rules. And we don't mind asking questions if we don't know.
No one gets into a serious relationship thinking it won't last. When you find someone you can trust and feel safe with, you naturally imagine growing old together. But all too often really good relationships that should last forever just fall apart. Why does that happen? It's often because of three common communication mistakes that, if not caught in time, will tear two people apart.
Divorced women offer so much to a relationship because they know what it takes to be in a serious, committed relationship. They've had all their experiences, been there and done that, so to speak; and so they're the best partner.

We often prepare for a speech, a conversation or a meeting where we need to present ideas and information. But how often do you “prepare” to listen? How often do you think about the quality of your listening, or even ask yourself the question, “How do I want to listen?”
You had some big plans. You wanted a romantic relationship, the kind that lasts forever. And yours was supposed to be special. Sure, lots of people cheat, you thought, but not your partner.
"You don’t have to be in love with your spouse to co-parent. You have to be in love with your “children” to co-parent!" I hate her for what she has done to us! I hate him for what he has done to us! STOP! WAIT! LISTEN! Can I interrupt you for a moment and remind the both of you that your DIVORCE is not only about you but also about your “children” and how they are going to survive it. It is perfectly normal to be angry, hurt and outraged at your spouse for the divorce or separation.
When the word “abortion” appears in news stories, whether it is from a position of advocating for or against, millions of women avoid that news story all together. The most recent news story “Arkansas 12-Week Abortion Ban Becomes Law” is an example of how abortion in the news, while promoting the political information, causes women hiding in their secret shame and grief to push down their emotions.

My husband Mike and I are on the same page when it comes to the green, natural, organic, sustainable movement — whatever you want to call it. Going green together can be a really fun project that strengthens your relationship, a lot like any other project you take on with a partner.
