Are You Whipped?

Relationships

  Gentlemen are you whipped? It’s funny how men tease each other. They are so competitive at everything, especially when it comes to women. And sometimes when one man gets the girl, suddenly leaving his single friend with a lot of free weekends, a little bit of jealousy comes into play.   Now all of a sudden you are whipped! Oh there is so much teasing involved that it can sometimes really hurt the ever so fragile ego. You would be surprised to know that it probably has … [Read more...]

  When it comes to spending money, women are masters at rationalizing expenses. We can shop a sale, spend several hundred dollars, and declare that we’ve actually saved money. AND we believe it!   Yep, that’s right! If we actually saved more money by shopping the sale than the actual amount of money spent, we believe that we have saved a bundle. Example: if something is 75% off, we have spent only 25% of what we could have spent had we not waited for the sale. Are you … [Read more...]

Games, Growing Up and Being Real

a day

    What a difference a day can make. Yesterday I was posting on Facebook about the new movie coming out, a prequel to “Gone With the Wind”, chatting how I was looking forward to seeing it this fall. And a few hours later I was so upset I could hardly see straight. Please let me explain, first off, I am a joyful person, love roses and babies, and would give you the shirt off my back.  I have a happy life and a heart full of hope and gratitude. So as they say, … [Read more...]

Be Who You Must Be

woman walking on path

  "I don’t know where you are on your path
 I have never stood in your shoes
 I see not with your eyes. I know not what your purpose is here
 In this stage of your evolution
 But I feel blessed to know you
 As you are not in my life by chance
 And you are my teacher
 As I hope you learn from me
 I pray I show reverence to you
 I pray not to judge you
 I wish to let you be
 Who you are
 Who you dream of being
 I will … [Read more...]

Marriage and Money

couple in bankruptcy

I remember it like yesterday. Sitting at home, taking care of our not-yet-two-year-old, when my now ex announced that we were facing foreclosure. The words did not compute initially, because I did not know how that was possible when he made six figures in the prior year. After all, I had the tax return and bill saying that we owed $20,000 for unpaid income taxes. Perhaps, that should have been my clue that something was bad in the water in Texas. Nevertheless, I was dealing with my own issues. I … [Read more...]
