JOIN THE MISSION: 100 SUCCESSFUL WOMEN WHO INSPIRE PROJECT

Lovely day to you and yours! I just had to update you on what has been happening! This is something that has been keeping me up at night and I am so excited to finally be able to share it! I just cannot stop thinking about all the amazing women online in the blogging and influencer world who are just filled with knowledge, experience, splendid tips, advice and motivation. These women and their voices have been shining lights in so many dark moments of my life and their inspiring stories often provided me the drive and encouragement I need in various difficult times of my relationships, motherhood, career, business and blogging journey. The internet is riddled with their awesomeness - you know - their recipes, their arts, crafts, super intelligent ways to save and answers to so many of our problems. In fact, I am now on a mission to gather up and beautifully compile in to a handy eBook the brilliance and beauty of inspiring and wonderful blogging and influencer women around the world so that others can easily access their motivating quotes, thoughts and stories every time a 'picker-upper' is needed! I know I could find all the quotes and stories I need right here on the internet or even write a few myself - but that would not be as much fun or even remotely make the same impact as hearing it from lovely, successful women who submit specifically to be featured in this eBook of life and love and who actively play a part in the creation of its content and energy! As a mommy of 7 daughters I should imagine such a book would be a diamond of a gift for my teens and other ladies all over the world! To read these stories of each climb to success- each witty and proactive journey to exactly where she wanted to be, each beautiful and inspiring story, motto, poem, piece of advice from the brilliant mind of a triumphantly satisfied lady who changed her life through faith and confidence - I simply get chills thinking about it! Would you like to share your thoughts with the world alongside other like-minded and successful women who want to change the lives and empower other women to follow their dreams, work hard, make a plan, stick to it and to not be afraid to step out in confidence even when everyone is telling them not to? I know you have been there too!  If this sounds like you and something you would like to put your name to; join our mission by adding your story, your, voice and your unique contribution to this wonderful compilation of total confidence and female intelligence - let me tell you more about what we are up to now!

XXX: THE EMAIL THAT MADE ONE HUSBAND NEVER WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN!

Wow, this topic just came out of nowhere, didn't it?

Well, you see, I spend some time each week talking with couples openly and honestly about sex (or lack thereof) in marriage and relationships on a number of platforms. Sex has never been a topic I find difficult to talk about and I feel that it is important for couples to communicate effectively and honestly about sex at all times.

With that said - there are two recurring issues that I have frequently heard about from couples over the past 10+ years.

1. spouses/partners who feel there is not enough sex in their bedroom; and

2. wives/partners who lament their husband's/partner's porno watching.

Often neither of the pair can understand the other or why they do what they do or feel the way they feel in relation to sex. Frequently also, one cannot determine why the other refuses sex on most occasions, and on the other hand one of the pair is cautious about their significant other watching triple x videos. And who could blame either of the two?

Today, we are going to touch briefly about spouses/partners who sometimes opt to enjoy a blue movie (porn video); and a quirky way the husband of a friend of mine had his porn watching habits instantly ended (yikes!).

MOVING YOUR LIFE FORWARD: OVERCOMING THE FEELING OF FAILURE

Failing at one thing can be the open doorway that we needed in order to see the opportunity on the other side that we had never considered; failure can many times provide us the strength and experience that was missing from our initial effort so that when we do get off the floor we are ready to charge ahead. Failure to properly manage a sudden financial reward in one instance can provide us that keen wisdom we need in order to ensure all goes well should such an opportune moment arise again. The failure of one marriage can very often lead a person to meet and marry their soul mate after the turmoil and madness of divorce before.

MAKING HAPPINESS A HABIT: 3 SIMPLE WAYS TO FIND YOUR SMILE DURING DEPRESSION

There are always tiny things that bring sunshine in to my life even on dark days, but it can take a crap-load of effort to attempt to find happiness during moments of despair or feelings of failure which can often lead to depression. They say "laughter is the best medicine" and that is indeed true - but when even a laugh commands more effort than you are willing to give during these moments - I have found that it is first best to at least find your smile.
