The Power of Self-Esteem!

The Power of Self-Esteem!

by: Dorothy Lafrinere

Why are there so many women haunted by a low self-esteem ?
I have shared many thoughts through out my blogs on feelings, jealousy, worries, fears, and self-esteem. Every day I receive mail from all over the world from women suffering from a lack of inner power to get through the day, due to a low self-esteem. It does not only affect their relationships at home, it also follows them into their work place, where they are being suffocated from a lack of confidence.
In a work place the power of self-esteem needs to be high so that ones confidence can guide them through actions such as: important decision making, dealings with an opposite sex boss, office politics, other staff members trying to gain on your efforts, talking to clients or customers...

Early Detection And Breast Cancer

Early Detection And Breast Cancer

by: Brenda Witt

It is generally accepted that by the time a cancer is found by mammography or palpated during a clinical breast exam, the cancer has been growing for 8-10 years. What if we could have been alerted to the problem as it was developing, rather than wait till it is large enough to be seen by the naked eye? Would that be of interest to you?
There exists a technology that can detect an issue YEARS before a tumor can be seen on X-ray or palpated during an exam. This technology has been approved by the FDA as an adjunctive screening tool since 1982 and offers NO RADIATION, NO COMPRESSION AND NO PAIN...

5 Ways to Entertain Your Kids When They’re Off Sch

5 Ways to Entertain Your Kids When They’re Off School but Your Home Business is Open

by: Megan Corwin

1. Put in a DVD/video. What is it about children that they can watch the same movie over and over again? Take advantage of this fact.
2. Barter with the parent of your child’s friend. She can take them to a movie or watch them at her house for the day. Just be sure to return the favor on a weekend or day your home business is closed.
3. Check with your local YMCA or museums. Many of them offer special full or half day programs on school holidays.
4. Put them to work. Smaller children can certainly stuff envelopes. Older ones can possible handle data entry. Let them practice their alphabetizing skills with your orders...

8 Things That Maketh Not The Lady

8 Things That Maketh Not The Lady

by: T. O’ Donnell

1. Tattoos.
Tattoos used to be the colouring of soldiers, sailors, mafiosi and punk rockers. About ten years ago, they became fashionable. The lower-middle classes started taking them up. Unfortunately, unlike last years’ shoes, tattoos can’t be taken to the thrift shop and disposed of.
To a certain class of person, tattoos are ‘cool’. To another, they are a graffito on the temple of the soul. They mark a woman definitively as lower class, alienated, depressed, and a bit daft. They’re also a handy way to identify one absolutely to the authorities. Which shows how stupid some crooks are.
The same goes for piercings. My family are farmers. I associate nose rings with bulls, and piercings with cattle tags...

The Mystery Of The Opal

The Mystery Of The Opal

by: Sher Matsen

There is no other stone that has the mystery of the opal. With it’s fiery colors and maginifcent spectrum of color it draws you in and you are helpless to look away.
Every opal is different. There are no two stones the same. And every stone reflects the light differently depending on it’s depth and personal characteristics. This stone eludes a mystical aura without even trying.
Opals are extremely popular for jewelry and it’s not hard to figure out why with that beautiful array of color. Soft and feminine yet fierce and bold.
Opal has the honors of being Octobers birthstone. Back to ancient times it has beeen associated with magical qualities. It was believed to bring both good and bad luck...

Man Earring: a Radiantly Macho Trend

Man Earring: a Radiantly Macho Trend

by: Sam Serio

These days, there is a call for more “metrosexuals,” or men who are conscious about their looks and clothing, so much that it is actually important for them to be not only presentable, but fashionable as well in civilized society. The television program “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” has revolutionized makeovers for all of us, for it has shown that, yes, it is indeed possible for men to be pleasant to look at without being “girly” or “dandy.” Masculine jewelry, such as man earrings, are a big part of this metrosexuality trend.
Men who can boldly wear necklaces, bracelets and earrings to set off their hair or their eyes are men who have achieved the next level of metrosexuality: accessorizing...

What’s It All About

What’s It All About

by: Jo Ball

For most people life is a fairly ordinary existence – and when I say ordinary I mean a contented, ‘far from perfect’ way of life. And that’s okay… until something major happens to rock the boat.
Divorce, illness, redundancy, an accident or the death of someone close – any one of these events is enough to get you thinking about your own morality. When you realise how thin the cord of life is you begin to contemplate the meaning of your life and the direction you’re currently heading. Life becomes more precious and you ask, ‘What’s it all about?’ or ‘What’s my purpose in life?’
You may be disillusioned with work...

Basic Palmistry I

Basic Palmistry I

by: Sam Stevens

Palmistry is an ancient art and one that has many systems of interpretation. It is also an intuitive art that is easily learned just by learning a few basics about the symbolism that is represented by the lines that run across the palm, the mounts (or fleshy parts) of the palm and the structure of fingers.
In some systems, the right hand represents who you are today and the left hand, everything that you were born with when you came into this world. For “palmistry on the run” though it is best to read the hand that the person writes with, as that would be considered to be dominant hand.
In palmistry, the hand as a whole is divided into three different sections. The Fingers represent the mind and the higher self...

Prenuptial Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements

by: Johnette Duff

“Til death do us part” is still the language used in most weddings. Couples enter marriage with the hope of making a lifetime commitment. If this goal is not reached or if a spouse dies, the desire to be a couple is so ingrained that most will marry again.
The inability of the marriage laws to meet the needs of many couples makes the concept of a marital agreement quite positive, despite the bad publicity premarital agreements have reached. The freedom to structure a relationship should not be determined by laws that do not reflect the changing realities of family life in American today.
There is no firm tradition of marital contracts in our country because of the inherent resistance of comparing love to a business deal...

Get Married and Have Fun for the Rest of Your Life

Get Married and Have Fun for the Rest of Your Life

by: Terry Hernon MacDonald

How often do do your married friends complain about husbands who spend weekends on the couch watching games? Did they not notice these guys were sports fanatics while they were dating? Did they think things would change after the wedding?
As one guy told me, “In my experience, husbands and wives don’t enjoy the same things.” It doesn’t have to be that way. My husband of 13 years and I enjoy many of the same things, and we have a blast together.
Life is fraught with ups and downs, so it’s critical to marry someone you can have fun with, today and fifty years from now. Here’s how you can find that person:
1. Write down a list of the things you like to do. Then do them...

Have a Simple, Small, Green Wedding

Have a Simple, Small, Green Wedding

by: Debra Lynn Dadd

A wedding is one of life’s major rites of passage. It is certainly something to celebrate! Today, wedding books and magazines promote large weddings so that more and more wedding products can be sold. Wedding expenditures run into many thousands of dollars. And after this major outlay of money, most of what is purchased is never used again.
On the Spring Equinox 2004, my ex-husband (yes, that’s right! my ex-husband!) Larry and I remarried. We had been together for almost seventeen years, and had divorced several years ago when our relationship problems seemed impossible to resolve. But we still loved each other, so we figured out what to do to make things better, and are now happier than ever.
In planning our wedding, we wanted to kee...

Girls Only – How To Have It All …

Girls Only – How To Have It All …

by: Neil Millar

You return home after a tough day and slip into a bath. The taps trickle, the candles glow, the water, warm and soothing, soaks into your skin and the ballad of the moment defines your mood.
Your thoughts drift and the challenges of the day melt away. You’re dreaming of being on a beach. A turquoise tide tumbles on a sandy shore and the warmth that fills your pores now is the warmth of the sun. You feel wonderful and drift deeper and deeper and begin to picture the life you’d love…
Things haven’t been right for a while. You’ve felt like you’re turning up to work, hanging out for the weekend – which turns out to be a bit bland and samey, just like work. Days float by...

How To Overcome Your “Obstacles”

How To Overcome Your “Obstacles”

by: Graham and Julie

……I realised that I really created my own obstacles in life, and if I just got out of the way of myself and let my mind not hold me back, I could do things I never thought I could.” (Hilary Swank, as reported in the Sunday Times)
Hilary Swank puts her breathtaking performance in Million Dollar Baby down to the way Clint Eastwood was able to get her to relax and stop her interfering with her natural ability to create such an awesome character.
What about you? How do you interfere with your natural ability. How do you stop yourself from progressing? What do you say to yourself that ensures you stay within a safe arena? In Hilary Swank’s words what is your “obstacle” to success in your life.
For most of us our obstacle is t...

All that Glitters—Something Old, Something New…

All that Glitters—Something Old, Something New…

by: M J Plaster

Brides through the ages have accessorized with wedding jewelry to add a finishing touch to their bridal attire; however, many brides who don’t wear jewelry in everyday life jump at the chance to wear it on their wedding day. Is it the special occasion or the chance to play dress-up that prompts these brides to don the unthinkable—jewelry?
Those brides too practical to care about jewelry in real life use it on their wedding day to check off all the “somethings” that bring good luck—something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue...

Does Your Watch Keep Time with Fashion or Function

Does Your Watch Keep Time with Fashion or Function?

by: M J Plaster

If you haven’t lived under a rock for the past few decades, then you surely know that Rolex stands for luxurious precision timekeeping, and you know that Timex is the premier name in inexpensive, reliable timekeeping. The vast area between the two, however, offers the widest selection of watches-in terms of function, fashion and price.
We’re all creatures of habit, and if one watch has served us well for years, it’s natural that we gravitate toward the same brand and design each time we purchase a new watch...

6 Tips To Maintaining A Healthy Relationship

6 Tips To Maintaining A Healthy Relationship

by: Kenia Morales

Yesterday was my marriage anniversary and my husband and I were reflecting about the day we got married, and what has kept us together. So, I will like to share with you some of the things that maintain our relationship running.
If you noticed I wrote “working” on our relationship because our marriage is not perfect. I do not believe there is such a thing. Yes we do get along, share some of the same ambitions and at the moment we do not have any major marital problems. Disagreements we have them all the time but, hey my brother and I were raised in the same household and it is actually weird whenever we agree on something; Let alone someone who grew up in a totally different environment...

Tips For A Working Woman

Tips For A Working Woman

by: Colin Ong TS

With a more liberated society, it is no longer uncommon for women to hold full-time jobs. The glass ceiling that has been a barrier for women in the area of wages are showing clear cracks. Even in the area of management strategy, some of the best thinkers are women academics.
However, working women still have to grapple with the multi-roles that they play – these are traditional expectations of society. An example is in the area of looking after the welfare of their young children and domestic upkeep.
This article will provide tips for working women with a young family and without a full-time domestic help:
