Maybe Am I in the Wrong Marriage is the Wrong Question.

“There’s a real sense of freedom—for both you and your partner—when you no longer make him or her responsible for your happiness.” Sharon Pope, Am I in the Wrong Marriage?

 

Most of us live pretty conditional lives. We’re happy when things are going our way, when we feel really connected to the people in our lives. When our husbands can’t be who we need them to be, we can sometimes bring a more controlling energy to the relationship. We try to convince, to badger, to fight, to reason with him—all varying and fruitless attempts to get him ...continue reading...

Our Happiness: Our Job

“You have to learn to get up from the table when love is no longer being served.” Nina Simone

Anne has an ex-husband that is also a part-time terrorist; I’m convinced of it. She also has a business relationship that’s borderline abusive that she’s trying to un-wind.

Permission to be Happy

“You’re worried about how you’re going to feel at the end of your life? What about right now? Live. Right this minute. That’s where the joy is at!”   ~Abigail Thomas

The Huffington Post republished an article from Collective Evolution entitled, “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” and I’ve decided to create a blog post about the ones that really speak to me, delving further into the how these regrets exist in our lives today, but are suppressed until the promise of living no longer exists.

I See You.

Authenticity means exercising the compassion to know that we are all made of strength and struggle.”  Brené Brown, Gifts of Imperfection

I believe that “being seen” is one of the most profound human experiences we can have this side of heaven.  I think it means that someone understands, accepts and loves your heart, the core of your being.  They are able to fully acknowledge all the beauty right alongside all the ugly; they are able to smile at all the joy, as well as the sadness; they celebrate the light burning inside of us, as much as the darkness ...continue reading...
