Although, as I have stated in the past, men are fairly simple creatures, there is still a side of us we try to keep to ourselves. And while it may seem we are hiding something in an effort to increase our mystique, we are, in fact, simply concealing a number of dirty little secrets that we don’t particularly want you to know.

Anger is such a difficult emotion for so many of us to express. Women, especially, are taught that anger is ugly and we are bitchy if we complain or vent about feeling upset. Afraid of our anger and what it might appear like, we tend to hold it in and repress it. Simmering inside of us, it either turns into depression and we take it out on ourselves through addiction or eating poorly, etc, or it erupts like a volcano and comes out sideways and squirrely, not how we intended.

It always shocks me when there is a backlash against a woman who dares to make her own way when it comes to navigating career and motherhood. Sure, there are a few crazies out there — like the New Jersey mother who took her five year-old daughter tanning — whose choices we may legitimately criticize. But even in that instance, is this the best use of our collective judgment?
Out of respect to the families who were affected by the Aurora, Colorado shooting, I challenge each of us to dig deep into our souls and share our compassion with these families. Across the globe, we are all deeply affected by this senseless loss of life and its tragic aftermath. How can we make sense of something that doesn't make sense? How can we move forward knowing even a movie theater is not a safe place? The Dark Knight Rises is a great example of the mythic hero's journey. The hero's journey is one way to develop your inner strength. You can't attain inner strength by depending on others; you can see others as mentors, but the task or call is yours to figure out. "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink" is the motto for good mentors.
What I learned on my summer vacation... Summer is just blooming, I know, and the headline above may have some of you thinking of fall and going back to school. Those years are long gone for me and instead I find myself going back to work with a fresh perspective and a lingering glow from my vacation last week.
Last month when I was having all that fun celebrating my birthday I had a realization brought about by blowing out my candles numerous times. Each time I did I made three wishes. I realize this must come from various fairy tales and fables where the main character is given three wishes. Many times this doesn't work out very well for them, I seem to remember. They wish for something too small or too big or in some way not right. The big tragedy in the stories, at least the way I remember them, is that the three wishes are wasted!
Having just celebrated the 4th of July this week I am thinking about Freedom and what it really means to me. There are many kinds of freedom that are brought about by our circumstances. The country we live in, for instance! One of the elements of freedom that I am most grateful for today is the freedom to speak about whatever is true for me. I find this freedom flows into many areas of my life. Knowing I am free to speak gives me both permission and a very healthy responsibility to speak lovingly and intentionally - and often.
With all of the election hoopla in the news and talk about "Obama's America" and "Romney's America" and the types of worlds these men would like to live in if THEY were in charge, I started to think of what my fantasy world would be. Knowing I couldn't create a whole world, I asked myself what one change I could make in this world to make it a better world to live in. No surprise, I'd make sex safer.
