Cheap Clothes Will Hurt Your Self-Esteem

This is deviating a bit from my usual topics, but it’s just as important to share. How we think and how we feel will set the pace of our day and really, our entire lives, so it’s crucial that we notice what makes our thoughts turn sour, and how our feelings can...
Confident Expression

Confident Expression

You’ve seen this woman – she is hard to miss. She commands the room with elegance, a warm laugh, and a natural gravity. She speaks clearly and articulately, and it almost feels like the air stands still to take her in. Even when faced with a challenging...
Why Men Commit

Why Men Commit

As I was perusing the book aisles recently, I found two very interesting books, newly published, on infidelity. The sociologist author had interviewed both men and women on Ashley Madison, the unusual dating service directed towards people in relationships, asking for...

(Not Just) Friends

If you were to take notes from any teenage romantic comedy, you might conclude that every single relationship will face the struggle of, “The Friend Zone.” Now, many of us aren’t singing love songs in the halls of our high schools (as much fun as that may be to...

What a year! I don’t know about you, but this year has certainly brought out a deeper sense of compassion in me. Despite any outward differences, we all seem to want the same things – to be happy, healthy, and safe, and to be able to provide care and resources for our...
The Yin to His Yang

The Yin to His Yang

You’re having a deeply heartfelt conversation with your guy, when he suddenly says something mind blowing. “I love you, but I don’t know if I ever want to settle down.” Or something else equally boneheaded. How are you supposed to take that? How does this man, whom...
