Wouldn't it be firecracker fabulous if every single day of your relationships felt like the 4th of July? What would that look and feel like? Want to know the secret? First let me share my 4th of July memories with you and then I'll let you in on the secret. For as long as I can remember we always had huge family gatherings at my aunt's house on the 4th. She lives near the High School where there would be the most amazing fireworks display. Growing up it was a day spent in her pool with everyone playing Marco Polo or water volleyball.
LOVE & FEELINGS
There has been a sign posted on Camp Tuffit in Montana for most of the last century. It says "Free Cabins to persons over 80 years old- (If Accompanied by parents)" No one had ever taken advantage of the offer until 80-year-old Shirley Gunter of Missoula decided to check out if it was a legitatmate offer. It was. So Shirley and her family, including her mom, Helen Self who is 102 years old went camping at Lake Mary Ronan, Montana.
Do you ever have an argument or discussion with your partner and think, ‘I have no idea what to say right now’ or ‘I’m so mad that I can’t even hear you’? This post is meant to help guide you through a difficult conversation and manage feelings between you and your loved ones. I will use the word “partner” because communication between couples can be particularly difficult, but it could apply to a family member, a colleague, or a friend. Step 1: Put yourself on hold, temporarily
Whether we're single or in relationship, there never seems to be a happy medium. Also, when it comes to sex, we often find ourselves longing for something more, something deeper where we feel connected, enriched ... or maybe even to try something new and different. But how can we do that without compromising ourselves, our relationships and our personal integrity?
We live in an age where we have grown accustomed to instant gratification. From instant coffee, to instant fast food, to instant messaging, we have become pros at pressing a button or two and having our every wish fulfilled. By the same token, we usually demonstrate loads of impatience with anything, any one or any process that takes longer than five minutes.
Are you sitting home with your partner, night after night, feeling lonelier than if you actually lived alone? Do you long for the past when you and your honey were so connected you couldn’t wait to be with each other and share every detail of your day? Are you pulling your hair out trying to remember how and when the disconnection began?
1. SLUT CALLERS LOOK INSECURE Show me a woman who constantly derides other women for having fat arses or being sluts and I’ll show you a sista that is insecure, jealous and competitive. Not only is she looking at the butts, tits or hair of other women, she is also comparing them to other butts, tits and hair in order to 'judge' them. Straight men look at women, why do straight women look at women, too? Whatever the case, it doesn't bode well for her own self image. 2. SLUT CALLING IS A NEANDERTHAL
Continued from episode 6 First thing he asked; how was your last night? I saw Claire walking towards us and started feeling a little fidgety. Claire smiled and said good morning as if nothing happened. I had a sigh of relief and we started our day in the office. I was sipping my coffee and thinking why I am becoming an emotion fool; why can't I behave like a normal guy who can have good time with girls. Text on my mobile took me out of my thoughts and Claire sent a sorry and sad smiley.
I’ve claimed a new life for myself recently. Now, I believe I already have a wonderful life, filled with meaning and purpose and connection with my family, my friends and general community. Over the last 6 months however, Johnny and I have gotten clear that we really wanted a change of pace, a new fresh start for ourselves and how we “do” our life- both personally and professionally. We were strongly desiring a connection with water, a smaller town feeling, and to be able to walk to most places in our new location.
Love is not real, not the sort the world would have us believe, at any rate. It can be felt. It can be demonstrated. It can also be sung, unrequited, romantic, hopeless, spiritual, free, open, unconditional, crazy, magic, everlasting, true, irrational and even universal, but love has never been defined. It requires active participation before knowing fully what it is and even then it can drastically change within and between people. It is as fluid as quicksilver and yet can deliver a blow far mightier than pen or sword.
Getting where you want to go in life can be fun…if you follow these principles: 1. Ask better questions. The quality of your life is determined by the quality of the questions you ask yourself. When you decide on a goal, ask yourself: “How can this be easy?”… and allow Spirit to provide you some answers. Just be open to whatever Spirit might send your way and keep asking yourself, “How can this be easy?”…You may be surprised by what will unfold!
Todays message is infused with love. Look for it. Feel it. Enjoy it. What a beautiful day to be alive! Find The One? Naaahhhhhh…BE The One, and you’ll MAGNETIZE THE ONE. And THAT’S the truth. How does YOUR River flow? I used to think love was a far-off island. Then I thought it was a tough farm to plow, and work, and develop. Now I know love is a river, it flows without pretension, without judgment, and easily and freely to anyone and everything willing to step in and get wet.
Continued from episode 4 Claire: Why don't you stay here tonight. We can go to work together in the morning and you can tell me what you are looking for in a girl. Me: I don't think that will be a good idea. Claire: Why not? You don't like my company or I am bothering you? Me: No no; you are misunderstanding. It will be inconvenient for you. Claire: Forget about all this tell me what you are looking for in a girl. What's your choice?
Do you have to like or love someone to be considerate, kind and courteous? The answer to that question is simply- No. You can be respectful without agreeing with, or even liking another person. One reason this is such a vital life skill for our children, is for the rest of their lives they will need to interact with, work with and deal with people they may feel are unpleasant. At a young age we begin to establish our own boundaries.
The word love itself has a variety of meanings and interpretations, making it very difficult for many to describe. The health benefits of love, however, are easy to identity and much more obvious. In this article, I would like to focus on the positive health benefits of love in a healthy, loving situation.
You might have heard this powerful realization before: “The quality of our life is determined by the quality of the questions we ask ourselves.” The bigger the question, the more important it is to answer it right now. We just finished a season focused on gift giving and receiving. Here’s a big gift for you. It’s a gift in the form of a question (a big question!) you can use to create your own fulfilled life. Just by answering this question, you’ll be prepared to make this year super great in every way.
