“Personal Current Reality”, Lilliam Delmonte

HELLO WORLD ~ HELLO FRIENDS ~ LISTEN AND REMEMBER !!! Most people are out for their own benefit. If they don't haven't voluntarily stayed in touch as a (trusted) true friend apart from the sudden current situation, you need to realize they have no "REAL" personal vested interest and concern in "YOUR" life even if they "SAY" they do. People do what they have and need to do in order to get by in "THEIR" own lives. Even good-minded and positive moral people have their own best interest at heart … [Read more...]

Here is Your Prescription…, Larry James

On the hit TV show, "Elementary," Sherlock, after lots of banter back and forth with his shrink, his psychiatrist abruptly said, "Hour's up!" and handed him a prescription. It read, "Make one new friend before next week." Friendship is a good thing, however, somehow we all forget how important it is. A friend is someone you know well and care about, who also knows and cares about you. We need more people like this in our lives. Great friendships improve all aspects of our lives. When you … [Read more...]

Celebrating Valentine’s Day: What is LOVE?

What is LOVE? ... a question of the ages. Psychology Today says: "Love is a force of nature. However much we may want to, we can not command, demand, or take away love, any more than we can command the moon and the stars and the wind and the rain to come and go according to our whims. We may have some limited ability to change the weather, but we do so at the risk of upsetting an ecological balance we don't fully understand. Similarly, we can stage a seduction or mount a courtship, but the … [Read more...]

Confrontation is Not a 4-Letter Word‏, Larry James

For a healthy relationship to survive, confrontation is often necessary. However, it is one of those words that seem to evoke negative emotions and responses. Many couples do their best to avoid any confrontation. What you don't say if often the very thing that can drive a wedge between couples that can be difficult to move past.

BE YOU Bravely and celebrate ‘who’ you are!

Most people can spot a phony a mile away. I've been running into quite a few people lately who seem to be trying to be something or someone they are not. Every time we make small choices to fit in, we are burying a little part of ourselves down deep. Which got me thinking... When you learn to be yourself, you learn to trust yourself. You will begin to listen to the "voice" within. As you acknowledge this inner-connection, and begin to listen to it, your life will begin to be different in … [Read more...]

A Red Rose Bud For Her Pillow…‏

A Red Rose Bud For Her Pillow… Some men just don't get it! They say they love their partner, but rarely surprise her with something romantic. Taking the time to stop by a card or flower shop to do more than tell her how much you care without words is a great idea. A flower is a beautiful way to convey unspoken meaning. Women love surprises. Especially the ones that show that you were thinking about her and that you had to go a little out of your way to make it happen. So... guys! … [Read more...]

“How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways…,”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning's begins... How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. How long has it been since you wrote your sweetheart a beautiful sonnet or simply told her/him, "I love you."

Simply saying, "I love you," is one way, but there are many other ways. Be creative. Do it with … [Read more...]

5 Secrets For A Happy Marriage‏, Virginia Clark

Sometimes I think marriage is wasted on the young. The qualities that insure a happy marriage are those most of us only begin to master after going through many painful life lessons. I didn’t marry for the first time until I was 53 years old, and by that time I had been through so many rocky relationships that I was “forced” into learning how to be a better woman. Pain was my greatest teacher. I finally stopped using it as an excuse to feel sorry for myself and began to pay attention to how … [Read more...]

OMTimes celebrated AUG: To Be an Emissary of Compassion

We live in a dynamic place of complimentary opposites – positive/negative, male/female, light/dark. When we are born into this plane of complimentary opposites, the unconditional becomes conditional. However, somehow we are still able to grasp the concept of being unconditional even as we are being conditional about love. Just as we are able to grasp the concept of being one, while we are being more than one. We don’t see it logically with our mind, but we know it is true at some other level of … [Read more...]
