Journey to Sexual Freedom

I don’t mind saying I have the best sex life ever. Probably better than anyone else’s. I know that sounds egotistical, but that is how content I am, with where I am, in that area in my life. I’ve achieved the pinnacle of success in that area of my life. But not before I swam through a lot of dry flavorless valleys. Actually I wasn’t swimming; I was pretending to doggy paddle and really drowning.

Stop The Ride I Want Off! A Borderline Personality Disorder Story

I've ridden a roller-coaster my entire life, fitting in nowhere, not even in my own home. Of course, by chance when I did, I’d find some way to mess it up. This life never allowed me to like myself or believe I deserved others to like me either. I’d moved out on my own by 16 and was expelled from school just before graduation. My life displayed a pattern: abusive relationships, drug abuse, eating disorders, and other self-destructive tendencies that I never once thought of as problems. I really had no idea who I was. I simply lived my life the best way I knew how.

Why Wait To Look Great?

Ladies, let’s talk about image. Yea, that’s right, the clothes you are wearing right this minute. Do they really speak to who you are? One of my favorite silly eCards read something like this... “Just curious... what part of that outfit made you look in the mirror and say, 'YES. This is how I choose to represent myself today.’?” I feel like saying this every time I walk into a mall. I don’t, of course, in fear of being beat over the head with a bedazzled fanny pack.

Back To School In My Forties

I always felt like something was missing. Like I hadn’t achieved what I wanted to achieve and even perhaps that time had passed me by. A very good friend of mine convinced me otherwise. I am talking about a University degree. I finished high school, back in 1988, and commenced a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting. I spent the next 6 months of my life wondering what I was doing. I only chose Accounting because a friend of mine had, and I didn’t know what else to do. Suffice to say I quit not long after that and headed into the work force, which I totally enjoyed.

Ribbon Wishes

I have this screen saver on my computer that displays various color ribbons flying about. The first time it appeared I was ecstatic! You see, for years I've visualized very similar colorful ribbons whenever I prayed, meditated, or visualized something I wanted to manifest into my life. The ribbons represent to me all of my emotions, compassion, healing, wishes, and dreams going out into the universe to gather and execute all that needs to happen to make my desires come to pass.

Unveil Your Hidden Beauty

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.

Are You Competing With Yourself?

The one key to making perfect self-evaluations is to do it based on looking at the whole person you see in the present mirror. This image is your present personal best. She is the person you can see, touch, hear, know in this present time. She is not the you of the past or the you of the future. She is YOU right now,

Balancing The Migraine Teeter-Totter

As a long time migraine sufferer, I have experienced days that are fairly normal and those that would be crossed out from universal existence...given a choice. The constant motion of my life, the ups and downs remind me of being on a teeter-totter as a child. (I hated it then, too.)
