Now that the (sometimes) crazy parts of the year are over, it’s easy to fall into the mid-January blahs. The blahs are when life feels a little lackluster, you feel a bit bored, or you get stuck in a rut. So, why is the back half of January often subdued and slightly depressing for so many people?
Money comes to me from all kinds of random interesting sources all the time. This fact amazes my friends and family to no end. Earlier this week, an employer that I left a year and a half ago called me to say they had an uncashed check sitting there for me.
I recently invited the wives of the world to complete an anonymous survey telling me what they wish their husbands knew and what they REALLY thought about marriage, sex, intimacy, and more.
In case you’ve never heard of it, a reverse bucket list is a list of all the things you’ve accomplished or achieved. It’s the perfect exercise to complete around the beginning of each year.
As we go through our busy days, it’s easy to forget to express thanks for all we have. We run from one chore to another, from one scheduled activity to the next, all while our thoughts are on autopilot. We neglect to express gratitude throughout the day and end up ruminating on the things that disappoint us. This is a recipe for disaster. All those negative emotions bubble up and percolate in our psyche where they multiply. Like begets like.

I’m a busy woman with a lot going on both professionally and personally, so it’s essential that my daily health and wellness routine is something that I can get done quickly every morning.
Women, I think movies have ruined us. They have warped our sense of reality and realistic expectation. Every rom-com out there is chock full of grand gestures, romantic fluff and men that act more like girls. Most of the men in recent films aimed at women are gushing with emotions and are often show husbands or boyfriends that anticipate their woman’s every need. When this expectation clashes with reality, we often get bitchy, naggy or punitive without even realizing it. If your hubby has been a bit distant lately or seems a little less loving than he used to be, you might need to stop being a bitchy wife.
