Relationships: Giving and Receiving

We all want a relationship where we feel fully loved, deeply understood, and deeply valued, and where we walk the journey in complete harmony with another. Many times we are looking to the other person to provide us with what we want and need, when in truth, we simply mirror that in which we give. We often have the idea that when the perfect person comes around, we will begin to be on our best behavior, and that we will change when we meet him or her.

Spiritual Enlightenment: A Woman’s Emotional “Neti Pot”

It dawned on me today that when we are not spiritually and emotionally sound, we can't be our best - the women that we are meant to be. You know, like when your allergies are acting up; you don't put your best foot forward because you're too busy blowing your nose and trying to breathe - nothing feels right. This is the equivalent of being emotionally stuck in second gear; you can't seem to get where you want to go at the speed you need to get there.

Brain Health Evaluation

I recently did a post on memory loss and since decided to pursue ways to bring new health and life to my brain; it seems like a smart thing to do considering the alternative of chronic forgetfulness and even loss of brain cells. This trek that I'm on started with an evaluation of all the things that I did in my 20s and 30s when my mind seemed to be more like the proverbial steel trap than the bucket of mush it is now.

Diet Stress or Stressful Diet?

Without question, our enjoyment - if not our whole world - as one would say, revolves around what we eat or our decision and anticipation of what we will eat. Yes, we all have been recipients of both the contentment and frustration our decisions have created. Truly, haven’t we all - at one time or another - considered refraining from Big Macs, pizza, french fries, pies, and desserts a stress in itself?

Embracing Your Inner Child: A Women’s Happiness

Have you ever wondered why young children enjoy simple, unimportant interactions with every day objects like flowers (or flour), bugs, water, dirt, and even the really gross stuff? Because their minds aren't filled with the complications of life, they have time for the sensical parties in which we adults refuse to partake - most of the time.

Be True to Yourself

My mom died of cancer at the age of 52. That’s way too young! Why?? Through the years I have thought of her and asked God that question. Consequently, I now know why she went to an early grave. My dad was strong and authoritative, from the generation that taught him to be the head of the household and that the wife must submit to his every wish, while giving up her own desires and dreams.

Yo-Yo Dieting Not Harmful???

I was glancing through a prominent women's magazine this morning and had to laugh out loud. I've increasingly seen the "News Flash" or "Breaking News" articles that either say something's going to harm you (when it hasn't ever been a threat) or something's suddenly good for you (when in the past, it was a no-no). I'm confused!

The Wounded Child Within

How many of us have gazed into the mirror only to see ourselves at an earlier age, an age in which circumstances have left us in a drama of life that we were forever trying to forget; one that we thought we had buried, and yet time has brought forth the resurfacing of misdirected and scattered emotions – often those that have wounded and left us in a state of despair? Why is it we would choose to carry the burden of unpleasant memories rather than allowing them to be released with love and forgiveness, or at least understanding?

Beautiful Skin: One Doctor’s “Inside” Secrets Revealed

When we look into the eyes of another, surely we are looking at the soul of the one standing directly in front of us – or are we? It is difficult for many to get past the physical to gaze any further. We have become a visual society, judging according to our cultural beliefs. We perceive the outside to be an extension of the inside, whether it is health or beauty.

Tea: A Healthy Indulgence

Do you find yourself needing an afternoon pick-me-up most days? Do you avoid coffee because the caffeine would keep you awake at night, or say no to soda because you’re trying to cut back? How about brewing a cup of tea?

Memory Loss: Is It Normal?

Setting aside the wrinkles, the drooping boobs, and the inability to see anything closer to my face than two feet, the worst thing about aging is the sudden short term memory lapses that seem to come at the most inopportune times (ie. missplacing your keys when you're already late; your phone number has vacated your brain when you have to leave a message on someone's voicemail; your child's name escapes you).
