11 Ways Men and Women See Money Differently

Growing up, were you told that men know more about money than women? According to one financial guru, men and women see money totally differently because of how they were raised.

You are Enough

With recently celebrating Mother’s Day and through some recent conversation with my husband I am reminded of the importance of being sensitive to each other.  In conversation with some fellow mom friends, not everyone loves Mother’s Day, some feel they have not been a good mother, or feel they didn’t have a good mother, and they focus on the blow it’s in their life so celebrating Mother’s Day is not fun for them.  Being a mom is hard work, being a spouse is hard work, heck being an adult is hard work.  We don’t always feel adequate, or equipped to be the person we need to b...more

And while it seems like a rather harsh rule, I completely understand the sentiment behind it. Performers and artists of all types often live up to the stereotypes about them. Many are self-centered, needy, dramatic. Some have to be the “star” of the relationship and can’t help but feel jealous when the spotlight is focused on their partner. The schedule of a performer is constantly changing....more

In 2004, in a widely published interview, she made it explicitly clear that she did not support same-sex marriage. Four years later, she again spoke against it while campaigning for a presidential nomination....more

Something a small as a blackberry taught me this ...

Picture a busy street. One crammed with four lanes of commuters cruising along at 55 mph. Add the bike lanes. Add the sidewalks.  What do you see? Is your imaginary sidewalk empty?  Or did you see the runner? Did you see the children walking with their parents? Did you see the dog and his owner? Did you see the woman in the wheelchair sitting peacefully beside her companion? What do you think of the things that you see? Or do you, for that matter, think at all....more

JEALOUSY, FAITHFULNESS AND DISTANCE

So many couples are now separated part- or full-time because of military deployment and/or work travel and schedules, I get a lot of questions about faithfulness. Your marriage vows may have said, “'til death do us part” but no one said anything about what happens when a military career or traveling job makes it necessary for you to part, and you want to maintain the closeness in your relationship....more
