How To Keep Your Heart Open When You Lose A Pet - Part 2

Ariel, a 2 pound fluffy white bichon frise tied in a pink bow, was my 21st birthday present from my parents. I giggled with her when she humped the stuffed pig my best friend had given me in college (who knew spayed female dogs still have such libido?)  She decided that pig was her bitch, and I begrudgingly relinquished it to her.

Simple Steps To Bring Ease Into Your Relationships

Do you ever find yourself saying or thinking “I want to be understood. I don’t want to be judged, I want to be seen for who I am”?

When We Make People “Special:” A Lesson From A Course In Miracles

As part of my personal Prescription for living a wholly healthy, balanced life, I have been studying A Course In Miracles (ACIM). I find that this Course helps me bolster both my spirituality and my relationships, and I know from the research I’m doing on my next book that spiritual connection and healthy relationships are both essential to a healthy body and healthy life.

How Do You Know When It’s Time To Leave The One You Love?

She’s family, so there’s blood tying you together. But every time she calls, you wind up feeling gutted.

You love him, but you spend more time crying over the words you write in your journal than you spend laughing (and you know from past experience that the quality of your relationships with guys is inversely proportional to how much time you spend writing in your journal).

You’ve known each other for years. You once called her your best friend. But you realize you continually have expectations of her she fails to meet.

How To Keep Your Heart Open When You Lose A Pet

I was only seven when my parents hired a chimneysweep to wipe out the cobwebs on our brick flue. They didn’t expect him to stumble into a nest of four baby squirrels so tiny they had veiny, bluish, hairless skin and fused eyes. The chimneysweep brought the nest of baby squirrels into our house, but my mother insisted we must put them back, that maybe their mother would return for them, and that if she didn’t, perhaps it was God’s will for them to die.
