The common belief when it comes to depression is that it is something over which we have no control. Things happen, and we have no choice but to become depressed. Some have argued it's a disease with brain chemistry out of whack and others believe there may be a genetic predisposition. I have a different theory based on my work with clients; my study of the legendary work of Dr. William Glasser and the subsequent development of my own process, called InsideOut Empowerment™.
While I was at the IFM Convention a couple of weeks ago, I got to listen to Dr. Mimi Guarneri, a cardiologist from Southern California and the winner of the Linus Pauling award this year for her outstanding work. I just finished reading her book, The Heart Speaks, in which she talks about her journey from being a type A, by-the-book cardiologist to someone who has grown to appreciate and respect the power and influence that thoughts, feelings, emotions, and a sense of belonging have on heart health.
Long term relationships can become routine, boring and stale. Here are a few suggestions to keep the relationship fresh. 1.Choose to look at the whole picture.

Unless you are seeing the whole perspective, you will not be getting a realistic view.
Just like a rose, life is beautiful, but can also be dangerous. The smell and beauty of the rose compells me to "stop and smell the roses". Pardon my pun.

But how can we do that without compromising ourselves, our relationships and our personal integrity?
Dating game can be discouraging and tiresome. It can be so stressful that you forget that you are a happy woman just because. Here is a little article to give you a friendly pat on the shoulder, because you are happy already! You will have someone significant very soon, meanwhile you can celebrate:
Married people just might be happier than their single counterparts, says a new study. The study finds that while getting hitched doesn't automatically make people happier, it does offer some protection against the "normal" happiness decline that happens with adulthood.
We can't control the future. We can't control the outcome of most events in our lives. We can, however, control how we choose to respond to the fear-based "what-if" thoughts that descend on our minds like an avalanche and try to pull us away from this moment, right here, right now.
Often, when we get in touch with our most heartfelt and hopeful dreams, what may also surface are some of our doubts. There is an important relationship between (what I refer to as) the dreamer and the doubter that live inside of us. It is useful and necessary to develop skills for dealing with our doubt; otherwise your dreams could very well get squelched.
May 13 through May 19 marks National Women's Health Week. And although today's woman has more information than ever about how to live a happy, healthy life, frankly, it can be a little overwhelming to try and keep track of it all.
