Do More Of What You Love: Living On Purpose by Angela Joyner

Two bricklayers are working alongside one another at a building site. A man walks by and asks one of them what they’re doing.The first bricklayer replies, "I don't know and I don't care. All I do is slap this crummy mortar on these crummy bricks and pile them up in a crummy line."The other bricklayer smiles, proudly proclaiming, "I'm helping to build the new cathedral." We have all met people who focus on the “what” they’re doing instead of the “why” they’re doing it.

Want to Improve Your Relationship with Your Body? Try Gratitude

Want to Improve Your Relationship with Your Body? Try Gratitude By Mary Pritchard PhD

Do you love your body? All of it? I didn’t used to.

5 Ways to Align Your Energy and Attract Your Prince Charming by Stacey Murphy

When I think of love and romance, I have visions of being cherished, valued and pampered by a wonderful man who respects me and the relationship we’re building together.  A man who loves me for my brains and my heart just as much as he desires my body.  A man whom I trust to hold my heart in his hands with care.  A man who is my modern day “Prince Charming”.   I hope, dream and pray for this to be my reality.  Since I was a little girl, I’ve been told in romance novels, on TV and in chick-flicks that my soul mate is out there waiting for me to find him, for us to meet where the feelings are instantaneously recognizable.  We’re each other’s salvation.  We’ve found our other half which makes us feel complete.  From this point forward, life finally feels good. Do you … [Read More...]
