A Working Mom’s Dilemma

Every mother wants to be the best kind of mother for her children. Almost anyone who is a mother desires nothing but the best kind of life for her children and family. However, in the world today, it isn’t a new sight to see mothers having to desire these good things alone.

A Sudden Truth: Living After the Death of Your Spouse

Losing a spouse is perhaps one of the most emotionally grueling experiences an adult can go through in their lifetime. The deafening emptiness of your home without your partner, the realization of dependency on your spouse, and the loss of everything that you once shared with – companionship, a friend, a person to turn to for advice -  these are hard pills to swallow. For women, especially mothers, this is an unbelievably difficult change in their lives. Being suddenly left to raise the…

HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF AGAIN

Start believing in your heart that you’re equipped to live a quality life. When you love yourself and demonstrate that love, your expressions have an impact more than you can imagine. You will help yourself grow. At times you will swing from tender to fiery. You will enrich your life too. You will stand taller and noble. You will be more focus and less hesitant. You will have a cause to live for, to fight for and to die for. You will feel a sense of purpose, of making a different and of…

What causes unnecessary worries and anxieties?

I think that this day and age calls for lifestyles that are busy, fast-paced and absolutely hectic. As a result, there seems to be not enough quality time being spent. For example, most people wake up; grab a cup of coffee on your way out the door. You might sit down and have something only it you have children or a spouse, but nine out of ten times so probably don’t finish your breakfast.

 

You then get on the freeway rushing trying to bet the traffic, it you get traffic then…

Mother’s can’t deny it: motherhood is truly a satisfying role and many women have said that this is the best job in the world. However, many ambitious, working, entrepreneurial mothers do feel disconnected from their dreams, as they are often overshadowed my maternal obligations and duties.

When trouble occurs unexpectedly, how do I handle it?

Let’s simplify this. What you think about the most will eventually be the dominant force in your thinking capability. This will be the result of which direction you are going to take, or whether you will accept the situation and move forward with your life.  As we know, the children can make you lose your cool sometimes. Your spouse shakes you nerves one in a while. You job frustrates you a day or two, and so on and so on. But the question is how do you handle…

Let’s face it: we all have negative or bad experiences in the past that we just cannot seem to get past. There are just certain things, that when remembered, always cause anxiety and anger to build up inside us. The lost of someone you love is not easy to forget. And we have to admit that sometimes we just don’t want to let go of these negative emotions and memories. Why? Do we want to feel like we’re the victim? Do we need to even the score before we let go?

How long is the grieving process?

 

The challenges we face when moving forward.

I believe it will help you to know that moving forward when an unfortunate station happens is a process; in fact, it’s a long journey of acceptance and healing, and there is not a specific time period.  But I know you can get through it, and return back to a happy and productive life. I know it is hard for you to believe what I am saying right now, but you must hold onto hope, keep the faith. Keep reminding yourself that things will…
