Accepting a compliment, especially from a man, has never been easy for me. In fact, I probably spent most of my life shutting their compliments down before they could even get the words out. "You look amazing," he would say. My response: "Oh god, what are you looking at? You need to get your eyes checked." Does this sound like you?
Have you ever taken a sneak peak at your lover’s cell phone messages? Have you ever gotten up in the middle of the night to check the history on your lover’s computer? Do you check Facebook to make sure your lover is walking the talk? There are two points to this issue of betrayal:
"It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all...If you could only love enough, you could be the happiest and most powerful person in the world..." ~Emmet Fox This quote by Emmet Fox is hanging on our wall, and it always moves me. However, there is twist here that it vitally important: If you love in order to be powerful, then what you are doing isn't loving.
Are you and your mate considering getting a pet? If so this can be an incredibly exciting time for you both! Congratulations! Before the excitement gets the best of you, I want to point out some things for you both to consider as you bring in a living furry creature into your relationship.

I think it’s very interesting to note, that what is commonly thought of as the truth about any subject, is usually outdated and quite often totally false. I can only speak about my field of health, fitness and longevity for sure, but I suspect it is also true in other areas as well. The myths of cholesterol, calcium, sunlight and aerobic exercise are all good examples.

We all want a soulmate. “The One.” Your perfect partner who can read your mind + finish your sentences. We want fate + fireworks. But believing in predetermined destiny is limiting. It leaves little room for adventure + what life may want to give you. What if The One isn’t who you thought they would be?
Think less. Bitch less. Push less. + create more. The universe responds to your diligence but it also responds to your joy. Consider when it’s time to pull back. Not, by the way, to be confused with letting go. “Easing up” is taking your foot off the gas. Just a tad. It’s 45 miles an hour, not 60. A 5K run instead of a 10K.
You know how it goes – how it feels. You know the thoughts that trip through your head. Maybe I’m just in a bad mood. Maybe this is just the reality of long term relationships and I need to be more realistic. Maybe if I (or both of us) try harder, it will feel right. So you stick it out. You take it a day at a time. And it doesn’t get better. Why do we let relationships linger past their expiration date? A bit of insight.
Today I was inspired by the cold and drizzly weather here in Southern California. I used to think that a nasty rainy day, or a bout of tear filled heartache meant that I was limited to waterproof mascara, and some lip gloss....but not anymore! Although waterproof makeup is usually thought of as a summer staple, I find that I have incorporated it into my makeup arsenal for all seasons. An bad breakup, allergy attack, sad movie, or blistery Spring day have nothing on me now.
