Horror Story

Horror stories!  We’ve all heard them.  The date who shows up with terrible B.O and no wallet. The car that flies off the back of the tow truck. The holiday you spent with your head over the toilet. Bummer situations. But sometimes a horror story can teach us a lesson.  Always make sure you google…

3 Things I’ve Learned about Relationships from having Multiple Sclerosis:

Being the victim of your situation does nothing to help you feel better about it. In relationships with others, just as in the relationship with your health, there are somethings you can control and others you can’t. Focus on what you can control…your thinking, your boundaries and how you show up with the people in…

How To Get Back On Track With Your Marriage Goals

I’ve been thinking a lot about creating a change. If you are anything like me, you made a LOT of goals for how you are going to change your relationship and if you are like millions of other people, those goals aren’t quite accomplished yet. You might have even given up on  what you wanted.…

No one ever taught us.

It is assumed that creating a life-long fulfilling relationship, just like being a great parent, is natural.  You fall in love, can’t get enough of each other, things jive between the two of you…it’s easy! How hard can it be to make this relationship feel blissful long into the future?  And anyway, there are so…

The Struggle is Real and I’ve Been There Too.

I know that most women at times (especially in times of big life events – new children, children moving out, new careers, new countries, life changing health issues) struggle to feel connected with their partner. I GET IT.  So many people can’t figure out how to be with their partner when the ground beneath them…

Spotting Your Dive into Drama

Most of us rarely describe our relationships as drama-filled (well, at least not since we were teenage girls anyway).

What Every Woman Should Know About Relationships Before They Commit to a Change

Hindsight is 20/20, right? When it comes to doing anything — whether it’s baking a cake or starting a business or even planning a vacation, we all go in hoping for the best. That doesn’t keep bad things from happening, though. Oh crap, the cake is dry. This business idea totally bombed. This vacation was…

The Inside Scoop on Relationship Struggles

Marriages often operate under a shroud of mystery. You don’t often get a lot of information about how to make a marriage work when there is conflict. We aren’t told that the romance we felt at the beginning of our relationship will change and that the 2nd (and necessary) stage of relationships is the Power Struggle Stage.…
