Today I am reflecting on all of the new connections that I have made in the past year. Building relationships with encouraging and supportive women is so important. I have been blessed with an amazing network of sisters that ranges from my fellow Visioneras to my childhood friends to those who share my love for creativity and the written word. In short, today I am … Continue reading Learning to be grateful…
There are so many possible scenarios and ways that things could have turned out but if we alter those decisions that where made way back when,we inevitably alter our lives and our future. We would not be who we are today.I guess I’ll never know but it makes me wonder "What If"? I think most of us wonder what our lives would be like if we had made other decisions throughout the course of our lives.
Is life really just a big "What If"???
People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime, so they say. Most of us, if we’re lucky have a great circle of friends. Some of us have the same friends we had during childhood while others establish life long friendships later on in life. Whatever the circumstance, one fact remains true, and that is the need to connect and … Continue reading FRIENDSHIPS:: Are they seasonal or for a lifetime?
So, what’s the hoopla with the term “FRIEND”? It seems that practically the whole world has fallen victim to this epidemic. It’s a circumstance of denial and untruth. This word is now an easy pretense to putting true meaning to what a relationship might really be. It appears that “friend” has been substituted for – Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Mistress, Ex, and any other imaginable un-platonic connection … Continue reading Are We Really Just “Friends”?
When it comes to men and women just being friends I think that somewhere along the line the man, woman, or both begin to the see the other in a way that they may not have seen them initially. Meaning that during the time that the friendship develops, both individuals are learning about each other in a much deeper and honest way than you would learn about a potential partner. Because you’re relationship is at the friendship level, none of the pressure to ‘impress” each other exists. This allows you to let your guard down and really be yourself. But what you don’t realize at the time is that the overlap in what we want from both friends and partners is significant.

For the past few days I’ve been pondering this question “Is there really such a thing as harmless flirting?”. Some would argue yes while others would say no. I, however, say that flirting can be harmless if there is no underlying romantic attraction (be it physical, emotional, or both).
There can never be enough said when it comes to relationships. When you’re in a relationship it can be one of the greatest euphoric experiences you’ve ever had or it can be a horrific nightmare that you wish you’d just wake up from. Regardless of which category your past relationships fall into the reality is that at some point you cared deeply for your significant other. When a relationship comes to an end the hope is that you learned something from the experience and maybe at some point you and your ex can be friends.
We’ve all heard the saying “out with old and in with the new”. With the new year approaching I’m sure we all have some things we’d like to leave behind. The start of a new year is the perfect time for us to make resolutions about all the things we do or don’t want in our lives in the coming year. For 2010 I say that we all resolve to be fearless. Don’t let fear stop you from going after what you want. Don’t be afraid to take risks or to follow your heart. Your heart will never steer you wrong. Continue reading Out With The Old….
