How to Stop Liking the “Bad Boys”

I think this may be one of the worst plagues afflicting my sisters, the conditioning of liking the “bad boys”. Let me begin by saying that not only do I get it, I’ve also been there myself. I understand the woes of feeling like you’re just not attracted to the nice guys that come your way; […]

Too Much Too Soon

Too much too soon… this pretty much applies to anything. If you start at a pace that cannot be sustained in any area of your life, the only way to go is down. And I’m sure you don’t want to do that. When it comes to dating, my theory and one that I’ve practiced in both directions […]

Part 2: He (or she) shouldn’t complete you – 8 Steps to Self-fulfillment

Photo Credit – We Heart It It seems that last week’s article, “He (or she) Shouldn’t Complete You” really resonated with many of you in a positive way – and I couldn’t be happier for that. To further echo the sentiment, I was asked if I could write a second part to this article, describing […]

He (or she) shouldn’t complete you

Photo Credit – We Heart It “He (or she) completes me”… If what you actually mean to say, is that your significant other adds happiness and fulfillment to your already amazing life, then great. But complete you? If you did not feel complete before entering this relationship, the chances of it working out aren’t really in […]

Knowing what truly matters makes for easier decisions (most of the time)

It seems a simple enough concept to say that the more you know what matters, the easier it is to make decisions. But when you really truly grasp this, and even more importantly, find yourself applying it, it’s actually, kind of life changing. We (as in I), spend enough time worrying about the right decisions to […]

Put it in Your Pocket

Photo Credit – We Heart It I’d like to touch on a point that I think is very important when you’re getting to know someone. The idea of “putting it in your pocket.” What does this mean? It means seeing something good or bad (ok usually in reference to something not so good), taking note […]

10 Things to Stop Doing Today

Actually, let me put it differently: how close (or far) do these habits bring you towards your goals and the life that you want to live? Here are 10 habits we’re all better off without: 1. […]

Feeling the Synchronicity

It can be hard in this life of endless distractions, to truly know & feel when you’re on the right track, or which decision to make. That’s why the feeling of being in sync with something or someone, feels so damn good. Do you know the feeling? It’s almost like you’re dancing with the Universe, […]

Get Out of the Box

Photo Credit – We Heart It How often do we tell ourselves what we like and don’t like? And how different would our lives be, if we didn’t put ourselves into these mentally confined boxes? I imagine things would be a lot more exciting. I started to think more about this, when I finally decided to […]

Why is it not more commonly referred to as rising in love? When we […]

The Prerogative to Say No

It never ceases to surprise me, how many women are afraid to say “no”. Whether this be a no to helping someone, attending a social affair, going on a date, inviting a man over, and the worst of them all, having sex. I’m just so curious, where this fear of saying no has derived from. Is […]

Part III – Can Trust be Regained and if so – How?

This is my final wrap up on trust: if it can be regained, and how. What I wish to say in this closing piece is that regaining trust and learning to trust again, is not an easy road – clearly. But on the flip side, deciding to leave someone can be equally, and at times, […]

It’s complex and riddled with layers of emotions […]

Walk the Path of Your Own Heart

So, you’ve done a pretty good job of hearing your intuition. You know how you want to spend your time, but it’s scary. Really freakin scary. Because the path less traveled has less people on it. You feel alone and unsure. Wouldn’t it be easier to be on the same path as everyone else? We’re […]
