Married Wrong Person?

Married Wrong Person?

There are ‘red flags’ that let us know we are married to or about to marry the wrong person. One flag to take notice of is the person only wants to be around and know about you. They are not interested in your family, your friends, or their family.  You are all that matters. At first this may seem flattering. We all want attention and your love interest seems to pour it on you all the time.  In the background, this is a person who will pull you away from everything dear to you.  In the process, you are blinded […]

Fear of Love

Fear of Love

Relationships whether new or seasoned provide fears. To tell the truth, many of us fear love and therefore hold back emotions or dream up situations that may or may not have merit. Many relationships have suffered due to our false imagination and the real stories we tell ourselves. There are a few things we can do to help determine whether our relationship fears are rational or irrational. When the fear ‘creeps up’ take a minute to consider whether this is a fear you have always had or something new as a result of the person you are dating? Often times, […]

The Need For Intimacy

The Need For Intimacy

It’s so sad that couples are spending less time in the bedroom.   One of the biggest needs in a relationship is ‘Intimacy’ Below are a few reasons we forego intimacy: Couples are working harder, longer hours and too tired for romance when they get home. The closeness they once shared has been shattered by social media such as Facebook and twitter. Electronic games have taken over the quiet time normally spent with bonding and you often see couples sitting in the same room with their different game boards and playing games, rarely talking to each other. Time gets away from […]

11 Signs You Picked A “Dud!”

We all want a great guy but sometimes, we pick a ‘dud’. We’ve all done it. Looking back, the signs were there that  we were in for a not so favorable experience. He looks good, he smells good and he sounds good.  We get lost in the moment and are blind to the signs.  I’ve listed some identifiable signs of a ‘Dud’: He asks you to pay on the first date and says he ‘believes in women empowerment’ He smokes cigarettes and you see him always asking someone ‘do you have a smoke?’ You want to go to dinner and […]

A Sunny Day Motivation For The Soul

A Sunny Day Motivation For The Soul

It’s a beautiful bright sunny day. The trees are a pretty green and the leaves are swaying back and forth as they create a frame for the street.  It’s Saturday and I have so much to think about – what happened this week, what I will do and accomplish next week and the things that need to be completed today. Then a thought hit me to ‘let it blow away!’ So, I let down my window and pretended everything I was thinking about flew out the window, leaving my mind searching for the next thing.  I could feel my eyes […]

The Love of Family

The Love of Family

Family! It’s such a powerful word, yet many of us run from our family, deny our family, or fail to embrace our family! I was born and raised in Louisiana and family was everything. I always thought all families were like mine.  My parents were born in Louisiana, their siblings (12 in all) were born in Louisiana and we played together. When one of my Aunt’s moved to Houston, the others followed. That’s how I made it to Houston.  I have very fond memories of getting together every weekend with my cousins.  We spent the night at each other’s home.  […]

Is It Love or Lust?

Is It Love or Lust?

Don’t Mistake ‘It’ For Love I know you’ve felt it, that funny feeling that hits the gut of your stomach as you meet someone for the first or second time. Is it love?  Is it lust?  What Do I do with this feeling? These are the questions I get often. Although love at first sight does happen (rarely), chances are you are experiencing ‘lust’ or ‘chemical attraction’.  We all have energy that attracts or distracts the people we meet.  Sometimes, especially in a club or on the dance floor, we lock eyes with someone who has a great intense stare […]

Authentic Expressions

Authentic Expressions

We all want to be authentic – to be our true selves. Yet, we find ourselves being everything but.  The need to fit in, the need to be recognized as part of a group, tribe or community often keeps us from being our authentic self. I remember going to a glass shop where they ‘blew the glass’ from sand right in the shop. The best part was knowing that every piece was different although the same design.  Each piece was ‘authentic’.  I stood in awe of how everyone cherished the fact that each piece although the same would have different […]

What A Difference A Baby Makes

What A Difference A Baby Makes

Wow! I remember growing up and seeing older people that were normally grumpy or dormant just light up when there was a baby or young one in the room.  Being in my 20’s, I really couldn’t see the big deal.  I didn’t have any kids, only a lot of cousins, all ages and still could not understand what made people act so silly and giddy when a baby was around. Then I had a son He was a beautiful (of course he was beautiful to me!) baby and I loved him but still could not understand the silliness and downright […]

The Power Of Intention

The Power Of Intention

Having and getting what you want calls for you to be intentional. I am quickly learning to be intentional.  The more I seek the more I find how powerful intention can be, if I  submit.  Today I experienced an example of the power of intention. Family means a lot to me.  Yesterday I was thinking of a cousin that attends my church and I haven’t worshipped with her in a while.  I reached out to her and asked if she would attend church Sunday to which she replied ‘no’ – she has to work.  I told her how much I […]
