Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship. There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”. When you spend all of your time trying to please another person, at your own expense; they will see you as weak, possessive and clingy.[...]

Have You Seen My Rose Colored Glasses?"

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine. Both of us were filled with dreams that we were working to create together, along with supporting each other's individual dreams. But then there came that "crack", as Zara put it.

A Living Angel

I have experienced, or rather witnessed, a couple of miracles in my life. One of them has been my grand-niece Cassie.

Cassie was born with a very aggressive cancer that was not discovered until she was one. She went through major surgery and massive chemo. They were not even able to give her the last bout of chemo, due to the fact that she was too weak, and they did not believe her frail body could withstand it.
Cassie is 9 now, and she is our little miracle. If there is a such thing as Angels, she is our living one.

Due to the chemo, even after 8 years, she continues to loose her sight and hearing. She has special hearing aids made especially for her. In school, the teacher wears a headset to speak directly to her, so that the surrounding noise does not distract her. She will never be able to have children, but she reaches the hearts of many.


Featuring Cassie and Booger.
