Warning: This One Flaw Can End Your Romance

In my practice, I see many couples with concerns around keeping the romance alive in their marriage.  If I were to determine the single most detrimental thing one can do in damaging one’s relationship, it would be to not pay attention to one’s spouse.  I recently read a quote by Thich Nhat Hanh in which he says, ” When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence.  How can you love if you are not there?

The Day Cancer Came in the Mail

  I love getting mail, the real kind you don’t have to print out.  The kind you have to get out of your chair for.  So I was excited to see my friend’s return address in the pile, and it wasn’t just because the envelope didn’t hold a bill.

In Sickness and in Health? That Depends.

Being Afraid To Love

Love is a tricky thing. It can change you in a good way and a bad way. When you have had failed relationships more than successful ones, it is easy to close yourself off even when someone who enters your life who would be perfect for you. I have never truly been in love. In the past I thought I was in love twice, but now that I revisit those memories and relationships I realize that those weren't true love. They were faux relationships.

Once Upon a time...

Once Upon a time there was a kind little girl with questions in her heart. Once upon a time there was a mom who was ready to answers those tough questions.

I knew the day would come when Mina would begin to start asking me questions about my marriage and recent divorce with her father. She is almost 6 and I thought I had, maybe, a few more years before an in depth conversation.

On Thursday night, I ran out after a speaking gig and hopped on a plane to meet one of my best friends in Paris. YES, I went to Paris for the weekend! And it was absolutely FABULOUS!

The Top 5 Biggest Dating Mistakes We All Make

Looking back on my single days, there are so many things I would have done differently if I knew then what I know now. So many of these things we learn only from experience; from learning about life and love the hard way. But the reality is, when we’re in it, when we’re dating, when we think we’ve found someone who might be the one, when we’re feeling that incredible chemistry, when we’re so lonely we don’t know if we can be alone another minute, when he finally notices us and asks us out, when we feel like we can’t breathe if we don’t

Does Size Really Matter?

Does size really matter? Unfortunately the answer is yes. No one wants to admit that size plays an important role in almost every aspect of dating and marriage.
