Why Couldn't it Be 50 Shades of Purple

Discussions about 50 Shades of Grey seem to be everywhere, ad nauseam.  I have been wrestling whether or not to jump into the conversation but I decided I could no longer keep silent as I am passionate about helping people have better relationships and I think there are a few issues that haven’t been addressed yet (believe it or not!) ... so here goes.

First, I love the color Gray…

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports

soccer

This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

How To Make More Time For Your Kids

There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough. With today's hectic lifestyle most parents lead, trying to be at two places at once, balancing between their jobs, caring for their children, doing the house chores, and so on, time has really become a precious commodity. A commodity that at some point will inevitably begin to elude each and…

The Day I Discovered My Husband's Side Chick

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried.  I’ve  known my husband for quite some time.  We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes.  From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies.  After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to  San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again.  Needless to say life is funny.  After 8 years  we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…

Narcissist vs Sociopath Personalities

Recently, I was reading the newspaper and came across Annie's Mailbox.  A reader had questioned about a family member possibly being a Sociopath.  I found the article fascinating, since I was under the belief that my recent ex is a Narcissist.  I decided to do some research to determine which he may be.  



Hopefully this will help others when dealing with a person with similar characteristics. 
From Annie's Mailbox -…

My Mistake In Blogging. Don't Let This Happen To You

I am so disappointed in myself!

Through These Doors - The Manoir at Bout L'Abbé by Diane Condon-Boutier

A fascinating story.

MANOR

About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.

“Through These Doors: the Manoir at Bout L’Abbé” tells of the German occupation of Normandy…

Millennials and the Holiday Spirit

 

Although it may be the holiday season, as far as presents go that doesn't mean a whole lot to Millennials. Like so many other issues, they have their own ideas about gift giving. Apparently what they want is cash, mostly to pay down college costs and other debt.

So much for the negative stereotype that those born between 1980 and 2000 are lazy and have a sense of entitlement. Millennials are laboring under a collective $1 trillion in debt from student loans and still…
