You Are Enough

You Are Enough

At an early age, you probably tried harder or were told to try harder if you experienced that you weren’t enough. Perhaps you can relate to one or more of these situations. – Your parents paid more attention to your sister or brother. – Your teacher rated you as below average in some subjects in school. – Your boss made you feel like your work was sub-par after you spent so much time and effort. Their original intention may have been to help you become and do better. And in many ways, this has probably helped you strive to be better and to achieve more, especially in your academic and professional life. But when it comes to love, feeling like you are not enough has an adverse effect. It is more harmful than helpful. It shows up in your thoughts, behaviors and actions, how you treat yourself and how men […]

What to do if You’ve Started Seeing a Guy You Really Like

Have you been on multiple dates with the same guy and feel as if things aren’t progressing the way you’d like? Or are you fresh off of the dating scene and in a new relationship? When you’re still getting to know each other and things are still new, you may not know what to do at times. Here are five resources that help when you are feeling uncertain. Will Having Sex Too Soon Ruin My Relationship? New relationships are exciting, and there’s big temptation to sleep together early on.

Let Love Unfold Naturally

Let Love Unfold Naturally

You must flow in order for love to unfold naturally. Letting love unfold naturally isn’t about being passive and letting whatever is meant to be, happen. It’s actually about being active and takes self-awareness, self-reflection and a conscious approach. Since we’re only human, we get in our own way at times, me included. In much of my love life, it was challenging for me to let things happen the way they were meant to. I approached love in ways that prolonged my disappointment and pain, keeping me from the love I desired. Perhaps you’ll recognize yourself in some of these things I did. Things That Stop the Flow of Love In my dating life and many of my relationships, I wasn’t able to flow. Instead, like many women, here’s how I approached love.

Reclaim the Woman Within

Reclaim the Woman Within

I recently hosted a series of “Reclaim the Woman Within” discussions in New Jersey. During these monthly discussions, each woman participant explored her personal connection with her inner self and then wrote her own unique story. During these sessions, I encouraged them to look deeply within to identify the areas of their lives that required special nurturing. One of the exercises that I introduced during the first meeting involved index cards. On each card were the words “I am loving; I am caring: I am worthy.” I challenged each woman to read the words and then answer the question “Why?” I continued to challenge them with the “why” question until each one was able to get to the root of why she was loving, caring or worthy. Each month, I shared a single thought-provoking quote from The Voice of Knowledge by Don Miguel Ruiz. These quotes served as a guide […]

Share Your Story – Ginger Smith

Share Your Story – Ginger Smith

The first “Share Your Story” of 2014 is a testimony to courage, resilience and faith. It is the story of Ginger, who took a risk and discovered a personal path to peace and possibilities. Ginger was going through a difficult time maintaining her highly visible and very demanding front-office position while also dealing with her teenage son’s behavior problems and mental health issues. Her days were filled with episodes that involved the Department of Human Services, multiple placements, missing person reports, and witnessing her son’s struggle with drugs and depression – ramifications of the murder of his beloved father figure, Ginger’s significant other. Ginger tried to hold it all together but was in constant stress. She found it almost impossible to smile and maintain the required engaging persona on her job. She also missed time from work while attending to her son’s affairs. Unfortunately, her supervisor was neither supportive nor […]
