Be Careful What You Wish For!

All you wanted was love; what you got was the illusion of love and now you’re suffering from devastating effects of being hurt. That is the nature of human love, it can be warm and inviting one minute, cold and malicious the next, all in one neatly wrapped package.
Let me tell you something, ladies and gentlemen. Beware of the illusion of love. When someone really loved you there is no second guessing. If you have to ask yourself if he/she loves you, then he/she doesn’t really love you. I say this because love can be seen through its expression. When we love, we care and we are always showing the person through examples.
Sex isn’t love, so don’t get it twisted. If a man likes to have sex with you all the time, that doesn’t mean he loves you. Same thing goes for men, if a woman just likes you for your sex, she doesn’t love you. Many people get that confused with love and you would be surprised at how many of us actually settle and believe that’s all there is. Words can have multiple meanings and expression is the truest form of honesty. We have to look beyond what’s masked and ask ourselves is this real? Or is this an illusion I’ve created? Of course we want to believe in something that’s greater than ourselves but don’t be fooled and don’t be a fool! Until next time…….

The Way I See It

Even though I don’t always speak
I write the words spoken from my heart
I follow my faintest dreams and always finish what I start
Procrastination is foreign to me it never held any weight
I’m the first to arrive to do my work and the one who’s still working after 8
I give my all those closest to me will tell
I walk my truth in a heavenly sense even though I’m walking in the mist of hell
To go back..never, to that I say never again
For I have seen my misfortunes and have become too determined
To settle for less or settle for the most great
That is a line I must define
So do not judge me based on my shell
My heart speaks a thousand words in a day sorry if you can’t tell
I may not speak but I do write words from my heart
I keep my word and always finish what I start
Blessed be my name even in my moments of shame
Nothing I have done I regret
I live my life for the better in me
I have not become perfect….yet!

Our Natural Gift And Talent

Sometimes the heart has to be stronger than the mind and vice versa. There are many temptations in life. Those miniature things that cause enormous pain after the high wears off. Us, as humans have many gifts and talents and one is common sense and another instinct. When a situation arises and rattles your soul and every inch of you feels it’s wrong, nine times out of ten it surely is. When you get that jolt of energy and your mind and body are like “go for it” do what it takes to get it done. Your spirit is trying to communicate what your body really needs to stay happy. Some of us ignore that inner voice that tells us what we really need. The world is so fast pace that we forget our gift to use what we were naturally born with. That is our luck, that is our guide, it is our way out of misery, it is our own piece of happiness. Our ability to use common sense and instict. Take time to listen to what your body and spirit really needs. All the mistakes we’ve made and learned from, all the ups and downs, all the joys and misfortunes, your mind, body, and soul have connected with those things and pushes you to see clearly, to evaluate, to learn, to act, to seek, to do what’s best for you!! Bring back the strength of your inner voice and see the changes. Your feelings are valid and so are your thoughts. There’s that light in all of us and it’s natural…..it’s human. Until next time……..

Stress Relievers

Sex can be a very effective stress reliever. Orgasm itself has many benefits. The sedative and relaxing effects of oxytocin and other endorphins released during orgasm may explain why people find it easy to fall asleep after intercourse. But sex doesn’t have to lead to orgasm in order to release stress: simply being intimate with your partner is sometimes all it takes to soothe and relax you. 

A chaotic home that’s crowded with possessions could be adding to your stress. Introduce calm by de-cluttering, especially in the bedroom. Your bedroom should be a peaceful haven for sleep, sex, and intimacy not a storeroom for piles of clothes, books, or old sports memorabilia. Clear out unnecessary clutter, move your laptop or television to another room, and bring in a few luxurious accents, such as scented candles, plush pillows, soft sheets,and dimmers.

Make time for exercise. Physical activity can increase the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.

Take your allotted vacation time. Make sure that you take all the accumulated days you are owed. Until next time……..

Remarkable Oils For The Hair

 

 

 

 

Egg whites help your hair by giving it a punch of protein. There are many variations of this at-home treatment but here’s a good general recipe to follow: 

Step 1 

Use a whisk or a mixer to beat egg whites until they are white and foamy, about two minutes. 

Step 2 

Fold in plain yogurt (using plain real yogurt with no flavoring or extras added is better), one spoonful at a time, mixing gently until the ingredients are completely incorporated and form a thick, creamy paste. (Mayo can work as a substitute or combined) 

In this step you can add any essential oils (jojoba, moroccan, palm, castor, sweet almond all work well)you like or other hair-friendly ingredients. 

Cucumber: Cucumber contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and caffeic acid, fiber, along with minerals like silica, potassium and magnesium. Silica is renowned to be good for the hair. 

Olive Oil: great for conditioning and shine. Honey can also be combined with Olive Oil on hair to make the results that much more effective. 

Avocado : Avocado contains mono-saturated fats, which not only if ingested helps to burn trans-fats it can help give your hair strength and sheen 

Pure Coconut Oil: A really good one! Coconut oil contains many good ingredients for your hair: 
– One of the most responsible reasons behind hair fall and hair loss is microbial action on the scalp and hair roots. So, to protect hair against them, what we need is an antimicrobial agent. Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil is one of them. It is basically a triglyceride which yields a monoglyceride called Monolaurin when acted upon by a species of bacteria which breaks the glycerol bonds. This monolaurin has excellent antimicrobial properties. 

– Capric Acid is yet another triglyceride present in Coconut oil, which, like Lauric Acid, yields another monoglyceride called Monocaprin due to bacterial action, having antimicrobial properties similar to that of monolaurin. 

-Vitamin-E. Almost every aptly educated person knows the importance of vitamin-E for skin and hair. It keeps scalp and skin healthy and hair rejuvenated. 

-Coconut Oil has high moisture retaining capacity, since it is not broken down easily nor evaporated, being very stable. It does not let moisture escape thus keeping hair moistened and soft. This prevents breakage of hair. Coconut Oil is a far better conditioner for hair than any synthetic one available in the market. 
-he various fatty acids present in Coconut Oil serve as very good anti dandruff agents and are way better than any anti dandruff shampoo. A regular application can help you get rid of dandruffs for ever. 

Step 3 

Use your fingers to scoop up the mixture and apply it to your hair. Massage your scalp, taking care to thoroughly coat all your hair with the mask and cover in plastic wrap/bag. Let the mixture sit on your hair for 15 minutes.

Selflessness Is A Conscious Effort!!

Thinking of someone else might not come naturally at first. But the more often you can put “we” before “me”, the easier it will become. Thoughtfulness is about giving more than you take, and keeping your lover at the forefront of your mind you will start to think automatically of his or her needs and feelings first. This mindful generosity fosters mutual appreciation, respect, and love-creating  the perfect environment for romance and intimacy to flourish.

Make a commitment to doing something thoughtful for your partner a few times a week. That doesn’t mean bringing home chocolates and roses(Although it doesn’t hurt). It simply involves doing something selfless or sweet. Whether it’s making the bed or sending him or her the perfect I love you email for no reason in the middle of the day. Just taking five minutes out your day to do something nice for your partner can improve the climate of your love.

Even when you have everything else on your mind-feeding the children, bills to pay, a job to do– make thoughtfulness toward your lover a priority each and every day. It will create positive changes in your relationship and beyond! Until next time……..

Advice Teusday/ Forgive N Forget

Honesty and trust require forgiveness. Your partner needs to feel that he or she will not be judged or criticized simply for being honest, or admonished for admitting mistakes. We all have flaws, so try not to expect perfection from your partner.
It’s important that you avoid overreacting to minor transgressions. When you attack your partner for making mistakes, you give him or her the message that anything less than perfection is unacceptable to you. This is an impossible ideal for your partner to attain. You don’t have to forgive automatically, but try to make light of small misdemeanors. Focus on your partner’s good points, rather than his or her shortcomings for the good of your relationship. Until next time……..

Reconnect With Your Lover

Vacations are vital for helping us to unwind and recharge our batteries, but most couples use up their vacation days on trips that simply aren’t relaxing. Taking the children to the beach or to visit their grandparents is fun, but it is hardly a sensual, romantic break. Not to mention that, in between packing everyone’s swimsuits, finding lost bottles, and refereeing the children’s fights in the backseat, you barely have a moments peace. The same is true for traveling with in-laws, who are likely to exhaust not only your energy, but also your reserves of patience and diplomacy.
Couples trips should be a must in every relationship. Time alone with your partner somewhere different and romantic will help you to slip out of your usual roles and routines. When you strip away the to-do lists and the stress, you will finally be able to simply be with your lover. Not only will this give you an opportunity to reconnect with your mate on an emotional level, but it will provide a chance to reconnect on a physical level as well. They don’t call it vacation sex for nothing!!!! Until next time………
