“Lesson 3”
So often attractions are so commonly physical nowadays that getting to know someone has become a lost art. You think just because you’ve seen her with her clothes off, you think you’ve seen her naked.

Ok, so, tell me her dreams. Tell me what breaks her heart. Tell me what she’s passionate about, what makes her cry? Tell me about her childhood. Even better yet tell me one, just one memorable story in her life that doesn’t include you…….. I’ll wait ??????????????

hmmm …


You need to look at her as if she is art.

qtq80-SAXCp0

Learn her curves, her lines, where they begin and end. Discover her depth. Interpret her as her creator sculpted her. See her with imagination. She’s not just beautiful, she’s art and art makes you feel something .

Of course, she accepts your compliments on her face, her hair, her body, etc. graciously; and she is, indeed, beautiful. But not like just a girl in a magazine. She was beautiful for the way she thought, the way her eyes sparkled when she talked about something she loved, for her ability to make other people smile even though she was sad. She was beautiful because she fearlessly wore her scars with pride. She wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks.

You can compliment her over and over and she will smile when she hears it, for she has that beauty that eyes can’t deny. Just Remember, if she’s amazing she won’t be easy, if she’s easy she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it you won’t give up and if you give up, you are not worthy. Yes, she is beautiful, yet strong enough to only be moved once you see her for the beauty that is her spirit.

The Considerations of Breaking Up 

The Considerations of Breaking Up

Breaking up with your partner is one of the hardest things that you can go through. When you get close to somebody and let them into your life, it can be difficult to consider that they may be moving forward and sharing their intimacy with somebody else further on down the line. While it may be what’s best for you in the long run, it certainly doesn’t feel like it at the time. But feelings are funny things, and they can cloud judgement quite a lot. While you can’t put your emotions fully to one side, there are some things to consider when in a clearer state of mind.

Marriage

If you are married, there are a few things to consider. It may be better to stay married for certain tax benefits and pension considerations, but if that is not an option then get a good company and a good representative on your case, such as a divorce lawyer from IRB Law. It can be a tough process to go through, but it’s for the best if you can’t come to any agreements on property and possessions and will also free you up for any future marriage to a potential partner.

Children

If you have children together, it’s going to be a heartbreaking time for them too. What they have grown up with and have adapted to is about to change. While this can sound scary and enough to put you off the whole idea, you need to consider their needs too. Listen to them and constantly reassure them. When you are young, your parents are your world – to see your world split in half is not a nice thing to see.

Friends

Friends are there for you – at least, that’s how the theme tune goes. If you have made friends together, there are some who will take sides and some who will support the both of you. Other will just slink away, and it’s something that you have to come to accept. If you drag your friends into your problems without them wanting to be a part of it, you face losing them completely. Keep your personal life separate and remember that your partner is their friend too – it can be quite hurtful for them to hear nasty things being said.

The Future

You must always look for the optimism in everything in life. If you are more open to the positives than the negatives, this will set you in good stead for getting on and thriving out of what can be an otherwise awful time. Keep those who matter close to you and indulge yourself in the things that you like. There may be a time when you get back together lodged somewhere in the future, but don’t get caught up in trying to bring up the past to ensure what you’ve got set ahead of you. There are so many people in the world that it’s possible that you just haven’t found your soulmate yet – your time will come.

The Five Crucial Stages Of A Romantic Relationship, And How To Know You Are Ready For Them

The Five Crucial Stages Of A Romantic Relationship, And How To Know You Are Ready For Them

Romantic relationships are amazing and stressful. But wonderful, yet can be confusing. In fact, they can have you thinking that up is down and chasing around in circles. But romantic relationships don’t have to be so confusing. Especially if you use the guide below to work out which stage you are at, and whether you are ready to move on to the next one. Then you will be able to move forward with confidence and truly enjoy your life as part of a couple.

You are ready to date

How do you know when you are ready to date someone? Well, most people think it’s when they are lonely. But this isn’t actually the best reason to start a relationship. In fact, a lot of advice now, is that you have to learn who you are first. Before getting tied down with someone else.

This is because if you get into a relationship too early is easy to start to take on some of the other person’s personality before yours is fully formed. In fact, this can happen at any age if you haven’t first taken the time to get to know yourself and what you want out of life.

But what does getting to know yourself look like? Well, it can be anything from exploring the things that you are interested in. Such as art, literature, exercise or any other hobbies. Or it can involve traveling the world and have new experiences on you own. Which is not only tons of fun but will show you that you can cope when thing get tough, without being codependent on another person. Or if could be that you give yourself some time to pursue your career goals. So you can dedicate your focus and energy to that and having some fun, before you decide to settle down.

Most importantly getting to know yourself is about not letting being single define you, and learning to deal with emotions of aloneness is a constructive way. By doing this, you know that any relationship you do decide to get into will be for the right reason. That is that you have a true connection with that person, rather than the fact that you feel uncomfortable being on your own.

You are ready to ‘go steady.’

OK, so this isn’t the 1950’s! So maybe ‘going steady’ isn’t the best term to use. But you know what I mean! I mean dating someone exclusively, making a commitment to them as your significant other, and working towards bringing your lives together as a couple.

couple-love-people-romanticImage source

But how can you tell that you are ready for this stage of your relationship? Well, despite the lovely notion of a whirlwind romance, for most folks it takes a little time to know if you want to invest your emotion in another person or not. Yes, it’s easy to mistake the first flushes of a relationship for something more lasting. But in reality it’s best to wait for a little and see how things work out in the longer term.

That is partly because it takes a while for you to really get to know the other person and what make them tick. As well as how this fits in with you and your goals in life.

Generally, you know that you are ready to go steady in a relationship if other potential suitors start to lose their appeal. Maybe you are thinking about the person all of the time? Or perhaps you have started imagining what your future together would look like? If this is the case, then it’s probably a good idea to have the exclusivity talk and make it official.

You are ready to move in

Now, back in the old days, it used to be that folks would date for a while and then get married. But that isn’t always the case now. For a lot of people, there is a stage in between where they cohabit or move in together.

But how do you know that you are ready for this momentous step? Well, if you are spending an inordinate amount of time looking at houses for rent online and in the paper, that might be your first clue. You are obviously thinking about how it would be to further integrate your lives.

Or it might be that you are sick and tired of living out of a suitcase. As you and your other half spend so much time together, one or other of you is always at the others place.

But moving in together is a big decision and shouldn’t just be based on convenience. You have to think about the longer term effect that it could have on you as a couple as well.

For instance, it can be a lot harder to break up if you live together. As you not only have to stop seeing that person, but you have to deal with the financial and material issues of splitting one household back into two.

You are ready to get engaged

So some people might take this step without living together first, perhaps for religious reasons? While others will do this after they have lived together for a while. But how do you know that it is the right time to pop the question, or say yes when it’s asked?

Well, first of all, if you are dreaming of diamond rings, and your other half getting down on one knee, you need to come back to reality, first. Yes, it’s super fun getting engaged and celebrating your love and commitment with your friends and family.

But getting engaged is a promise to marry, and spend the rest of your life with that person. If you can’t see that happening, then it might be better to not take this step in the first place.

pexels-photo-271543Image source

Secondly, your decision needs to be based on the amount of emotional intimacy that you share as a couple. With the general idea being that you see each other as soul mates. Meaning that you feel that this person gets you in a way that no one else has, and that you have an unshakable connection and respect for one another.

If you worry that you will break up every time you have an argument, then maybe you are not quite at the getting engaged stage. As you need to be able to weather the bad times as well as the good times to make it succeed.

Having said that, it is unlikely that you won’t have any doubts as to whether you are doing the right. In fact, it would be worrisome if you didn’t, as then you obviously weren’t thinking about things deeply enough. Which you should be doing when making a true, life long commitment.

In fact, that is why having the time of being engaged before you actually get married is so useful. This is because it allows you to work out any remaining issues in the relationship, while you prepare for the wedding.

You are ready to get married

It’s funny, but if you are an anxious person, you can know down deep inside that you are ready to get married. But still, worry from time to time in the lead up to the wedding whether you are doing the right thing.

pexels-photo-137576Picture

But sometimes instead of looking for a huge thunderbolt moment, it’s the little things that can convince you that you have made the right choice for your life partner. For example, if you are calmer when you are with them than when you aren’t, it’s a good sign.

Or the small fact that they take the time and effort every day to make you smile can help reassure you that you have truly found the one you are meant to marry.

Real Men Dating “Lesson 2”

“Lesson 2”
A few months ago a friend asked what my opinion of a real relationship should be!

Well here ya go lesson #2 ? It’s when naked means unveiling your walls ,your fears, and emotions.

tipsfromtia.com Kissing

It’s when a kiss can make you weak and tremble. It’s when there are no secrets only raw truths. It’s feeling safe and comfortable and never questioning. It’s having a person so close to you that undressing their mind and thoughts is the sexiest thing you can do. It’s loving without fear and jumping without regret ! It’s leaving for work and rushing home just bc you crave that person. Finding that a night in can be 10x the amount of fun as any bar. It’s little notes randomly placed to be found later just saying i love you or your beautiful . Just cooking dinner while they tell you about their day over a drink . It’s never wondering how you’ll feel tomorrow bc you know you just know that they desire you with the same intense passion that intoxicates you every second. It’s sleeping every night with nothing but their name on your lips.

Getting Out Of Trouble, On The Double!

Getting Out Of Trouble, On The Double!

At some point in time, everyone finds themselves in a little bit of trouble. Of course, the level and severity of the trouble you’re in will depend on what you do. Some people might get in trouble for not doing their work. But, that’s not the sort of trouble we’re trouble we’re talking about in this specific article. Instead, this post is about criminal trouble. If the police are ever knocking at your door or putting cuffs on your arms; this post will be there to help you. You just have to remember a couple of things to make sure that you’re covered.

prison-fence-219264_960_720(Image Source)

What you do if you should happen get arrested is very important. A lot of people are rude to the police. Or, will try to escape them. Both of these attitudes are destructive and pointless. Once they’ve caught you; there’s not much you can do. So, it’s best to try and get on the good side of the police. In a lot of cases; when people decide to be difficult with police, they will find that they commit more crimes than they had originally. And, this will just get you into more trouble. It’s best to avoid talking too much at this stage. Just give them the details they need and don’t talk about the crime.

Your first priority, once you get to the station, should be talking to your lawyer. This will ensure that you don’t say anything that could harm you. And, to make you aware of the sort of trouble you’re in. It’s hard to make sure that you handle issues like this with poise and grace. A lawyer will be able to do this for you; limiting the chances that you’ll do the wrong thing. If you don’t have a lawyer, you should be at least aware of a good one. Look at websites like http://rokolaw.com/ to get an idea of what’s available. You should always look for lawyers that specialize in the trouble that you’re in. Criminal defense lawyers won’t be good at contract law; but, a family lawyer won’t be very good with criminal law. So, you need to make the right choice.

Getting out of the crime you’ve committed will be unlikely. There’s almost always some sort of backlash from something like this. And, it’s hard to get rid of the backlash completely. So, you will need to be prepared to do some time or other punishment for what you have done. Choosing a good lawyer will limit this time as much as possible. And, will help you to retain your reputation after the fact. So, it’s essential that you do plenty of research. In some cases; you may be able to get out of the issue. But, this will be greatly dependent on the professional helping you.

Hopefully, this will give you a good idea of what needs to be done if you should ever happen to find yourself in a legal battle. It can be hard to focus on something like this in a sensible way. And, a lot of people are very emotional during these times. It’s important to remain calm, though. Never get too excited.

Speak with other moms

“Lesson 1”
To all you Fu@kBoys that are causing women to think chivalry is dead and good guys don’t exist,

If you think this Feb 14th is just a date… If you think birthdays and anniversaries are nothing special than just another year…

Love isn’t remembering to get flowers and a card the day b4 and being proud you made a last ditch effort.

It’s called appreciation.

Tell her that instead of buying something just once. Money can’t touch the feeling left inside her mind when she knows she’s appreciated. I’ll help ya out real quick, Don’t tell her she’s pretty. Instead, tell her how conversations with her can keep you awake all night with intrigue. Tell her how her scent captivates you like freshly brewed coffee. Tell her that she is enough even if others are wanting her to feel otherwise. Tell her how she makes silence look gorgeous and tell her how she makes everything worth the efforts. Don’t tell her she’s pretty, tell her you appreciate she exists. !!!!!!!!

The Privilege Of Spontaneity

The Privilege Of Spontaneity

pexels-photo-4Image source

Spontaneity is one of the greatest things any of us can ever allow ourselves the pleasure of doing. Most of the time, being spontaneous really means being random, but being random is fine. It is more than fine. Life is so focused around routines that it is no wonder more people don’t go mad. We go from school to college to work to retirement. We set our alarms at 6.30am every day, leave the house 8am, get to work at 8.45, go to Subway for lunch, leave work at 6pm, have dinner at 7.30pm, watch our favorite Netflix show and go to bed at 10pm. That is the humdrum noise of so many lives, lives full of stress; so why not be a little bit spontaneous. Better yet, be spontaneous with your best friend.

This could be your wife or husband. It could be your college roommate. It could be anyone, but be spontaneous with them. Doing it alone is amazing in the sense that you have done it alone and learned something new about yourself. But doing it with a friend brings that element of silliness into it, that little bit of fun that doesn’t get allowed out when it is just you. But what random spontaneous things can you do?

Well, chances are you have resisted the urge to do a lot of these in the past, so next time you feel that bubbling energy that says “do it, do it, do it” why not give in and have a laugh. You’ll feel so much better after a good ab-aching giggle. Trust us.

pexels-photo-319691Image source

Spread Happiness

Speak to random people, but do it with an infectious glee. Say hi to people passing by on the street, or start up conversations with those sat around you on the bus, or on the subway. Too many people are afraid to step outside their comfort zones in this sense, but meeting people and making brief half-hour friendships is so an incredible thing to do. There is a word, Sonder, which is the recognition that each passerby has a life as complex and vivid as your own, so why not hear their stories. If you’re not feeling brave enough, or don’t know how to break the ice of random conversation with random people, then why not pretend you don’t know the area. Ask them for advice on where to go and what to see. You’ll be amazed at how such a simple segue will lead into a good old laugh.

Dual Headphones

This is one of our favorite random activities, but go and by an earphone splitter so that both of you can listen to the same music, plug it into your iPhone and head off on a walk. Take it in turns to choose a song, but do it alphabetically. This is such an epic and subtle way to make incredible memories. You’ll see your surroundings in a whole new light, unable to talk to one another, as you listen to each others song choice and look at your surroundings, taking it all in. You’ll see things you never saw before, in see things in a whole new way. You’ll give songs new meanings and you’ll bond with one another without even speaking; it is totally random, and spontaneous, yet incredible too.

Road Trip

Do it, just jump in the car and drive. Put $20 worth of fuel in the tank and go as far as it will take you. See what you stumble across. See what adventures you end up going on. If you see something that catches your eye, then stop and check it out. The other thing you can do to add to the total bonkers-ness of it all is to each pack a bag of totally random things to make the journey that much more memorable. Take candyfloss with you. Or pack a couple of longboards. Go online and see what dashboard items you can get, because there are some incredibly fun things out there. What’s more, they can be cheap too; some companies offer $5~$90 OFF – Custom Bobbleheads Unique Craftsmanship. Why not pack a tent and turn your spontaneous road trip into a spontaneous camping trip. This is your chance to travel with your best friend without going far, enjoying your own neck of the woods, bonding, and laughing, and do it for no good reason. That is what makes this a privilege, is the fact we can do this sort of thing, knowing some people can’t.

Street Musicians

The world is full of talented people. It is packed full of them. Yet all too often we don’t actively look for them, or we don’t give them the time of day, or we don’t see their talents because we are too busy caring about our own little world. So why not stop and take it all in for a minute? Why not go and find street musicians in your area, sit and watch them, dance, sing with them and drop a couple of dollars into each hat. Seeing your favorite band live is a gig that probably costs upward of $60, and yet for $10 you could go to five live gigs. If you can’t spare that amount, though, why not come up with a totally random points system based on your preferences, and then go back and tip the performer you liked best – you never know what might happen. Stop and listen to each one, that will make their day more than you know, but then score them based on song choices, instruments, energy, style, and anything else you can think of.

Events

Every city has an array of stuff going on, so why not go to the first event you walk past or hear of. Head to the local tourist office and ask them to pick a random event that is happening in town today. It could be an environmental march, it could be a seminar, or the opening of a café, or even an art exhibition. It doesn’t matter what it is, it just matters that you embody spontaneity and go. Who knows, you may learn something incredible. You may find you love a certain niche of art, or have a preordained love for a new food, or anything. The thing to remember is that life should be about new experiences, so throw yourself into them as often as you can. We are all learning about ourselves, and that never stops.

Dress Up

Too many of us take life too seriously, so why not go the other way and be as silly as possible. If you have a dressing up box then great. If not, raid your wardrobe, or your parents’ wardrobe, see if there are any decidedly dodgy and retro clothes that you can wear. Why not go one step further and have a 1970s inspired photoshoot. Take what you can find, head to a fancy dress shop, get some wigs, head to local landmarks and hold a hippy-inspired photoshoot. One day you’ll look back at these photos and smile. These will be the good old days when you were carefree and happy. So be weird, be wild, be odd and be you. Trust us. You’ll only regret it if you’re not.

The world is so full of opportunities to say yes, but all too often we don’t. We forget to live in the moment or get the most out of everyday. We believe in things like Carpe Diem, but the reality is very different. Imagine if every morning you woke up and found $86,400 in your bank, with one catch; anything you don’t spend that day is lost. It doesn’t carry over to the next day. You can’t save it, you can only spend it. Well, you would spend every cent, right? Well, we have 86,400 seconds to spend each day, so why not spend them with the same mentality.

Now go and be spontaneous.

A Healthy Mind Makes a Healthy Person

A Healthy Mind Makes a Healthy Person

Our brains are at the centre of our bodies. Well, not physically, but our brains are the main control unit for everything that we do. It houses all of the functions that our body needs to be able to work. Do we need to move our hand? Our brain has to process it. Do we need to go toilet? Our brain will let us know and our body will react accordingly. Our brains also house our memories. Somewhere deep inside of your brain, there are memories that are locked away. Perhaps they are embarrassing situations, perhaps happy moments, or maybe even things you try to forget but simply can’t.

pen-idea-bulb-paperImage Credit

Whatever we do it is in some way related to our brains, so if we want to have a healthy body, it makes sense to have a healthy brain. Here are some great ways to look after your mental health to keep yourself working at your optimal level.

Change Your Diet

Good nutrition is the key to a healthy mind. You should be remembering your vitamins and minerals, eating healthy food and making sure you skip as much junk food as possible. If you aren’t used to counting calories or watching your weight, then you can track your calories with an online tool. You can also take supplements that will help maintain good brain health and give you nutrients that you’re missing from your diet. For instance, if you don’t eat enough fish then you’re probably missing out on omega-3 fatty acids, and citrus fruits are good for vitamin C. Take a look at this brain supplements 101 guide if you want more information on how supplements can empower your brain.

Stimulate Your Mind

If you want you run but you don’t practice running, your legs won’t be able to cope with what your brain wants it to do. In other words, you have to practice running in order to run well. The same logic applies to your brain. If you aren’t actively using your brain and stimulating it, then you aren’t working it hard enough and it will slowly get lazy. If you want to give your brain a good workout, then consider doing the daily sudoku or crossword puzzles in the newspaper, or get a smartphone app that challenges you with some simple or advanced math problems.

Avoid Bad Habits

Alcohol, tobacco and drugs will kill your brain activity. If you are having trouble breaking free from these habits, then it’s recommended to seek professional help. Dealing with an addiction is difficult on your own and the best way to improve your chances is to get your friends and family to help you and to see a doctor that specialises in treating addictions.

Summary

A healthy mind and a healthy body go hand in hand. Having one usually makes it easier to have the other, and both of them are great things to strive for. The key points to take from this article is to eat healthily, stimulate both your body and mind and avoid bad habits. It’s not an easy task, but it will get easier the more you stick to it.

A New Hierarchy Of Needs

A New Hierarchy Of Needs

Are you where you always wanted to be, but still unhappy? Meeting your goals and still facing dissatisfaction can be tough. Where do you go from there? The strange thing about happiness is that it doesn’t fall on one factor. When you focus on getting everything right with one aspect of your life, you can neglect others. As Maslow’s hierarchy of needs can teach us, satisfaction doesn’t come from one thing. There are a few things to get right before we say we’re happy. Even then, you may find that happiness is more elusive than you thought. But, it’s a start, right?

home-1730489_960_720Image from Pixabay

HOME

You can’t find success in the complex aspects of life if you haven’t got the basics right. Food and shelter is at the bottom of Maslow’s lists. If you haven’t got those, the rest of your efforts could go to waste! But, having a roof over your head isn’t enough. What Maslow failed to consider is that you won’t be happy with your home until you have it the way you want it. So, get started making a home you can be happy in. Whether you need a Kitchen refurb, or a complete redecoration, get to work. Think, too, about the furniture you buy. If you’ve put no effort into your choices, you’re less likely to be happy with the results. Buying furniture you love will add to the sense of satisfaction and make the home your own!

WORK
