In honor of life, do something FUN today! Get out of your head and get engaged in the real world around you!

How To Tell What He’s REALLY Into!!!

July 15, 2014 | Posted in General, Love, Personal Development, Relationships | By

good-and-evil-2

Whatever you think about most, is what you worship. You can easily discover what other people worship by observing their words, behaviors, and actions. Do they work non stop, then talk non stop about work when they are “off?” Do they listen to music 24/7, and feel naked without their headphones? Do they obsess about their new boyfriend and constantly check his twitter and instagram for new updates? Are they on Facebook all the time and get irritated when they have to put the phone or tablet away? Does he say he’s really into you, then plays video games and ignores you?

These are all examples of worship. Where you put your time and attention tells everyone what you are about. Do you need to balance some of your activities? What if you put the same amount of time that you spend on Facebook into your relationship; would it change? What if you worked even half as much as you played video games or listened to music; would you have more money? What if you volunteered as much as you gossiped; would you feel more fulfilled?

People often get obsessive about what they are doing without even realizing it. Then they can become addicted to the feelings of importance, or connection.  Be careful of people who say one thing, yet worship another. For example, a “friend” may say they hate drama, yet they are the first to share gossip. Or, someone might tell you that they rarely get on Facebook yet they have 100 posts per day! Look for signs of worship more than you listen to the words of lip service!

Be careful what YOU worship as well, it may lead you down a lonely road only to find that nobody is waiting for you at the end. Find your balance, spend time with people you love, do NO harm to others, fully participate in life and Live Inspired Now!

What A Cat’s Belly Teaches Us About Relationships….

July 7, 2014 | Posted in General, Giving, Honesty, Love, Relationships | By

Rubbing_a_cats_chi_2632074b

A cat that likes you will let you touch him. A cat that loves you will let you pet him. A cat that trusts you completely will lay on his back and let you rub his belly.

Now, apply this to relationships. Until you fully surrender and become completely vulnerable to another person, you are not fully committed to them. If you can’t fully surrender, or “show your belly,” then maybe you should reconsider whether or not you should be in that relationship.

Relationships don’t work for long when you have walls up. The greatest gift you can give to someone you love is gift of you! Get fully invested in your relationship, “show your belly,” play full out, enjoy the feelings of complete trust and honesty, and Live Inspired Now!

PS: Please check out my new “couples” page and learn how you can transform your current relationship!

Hey Heather- Why are all boys jerks?

June 20, 2014 | Posted in General, Happiness, Hey Heather, Kids, Love, Moms, Parenting, Relationships | By

HeyHeather

“Hey Heather,
Why are all boys in my grade such jerks? I really like XXXXXX and he said he liked me too, but he acts like he doesn’t like me when he is with his friends. I really want to have a boyfriend and I am mature and stuff, but I don’t think boys are.” -8th grader

Dear Mature and stuff,
You are in 8th grade. Nobody in 8th grade is mature enough for a “relationship” and that is a GOOD thing! Look at the adults around you… most of them are not even mature enough for a relationship! Many adults now are struggling, divorcing, cheating, lying, fighting, or living like roommates! This is because they never learned HOW to have a successful relationship! Schools don’t teach people how to communicate without hurting the other person, or how to meet the needs of your partner unconditionally, or even how to work through conflict. In other words, schools do not teach people how to have successful, happy, and healthy romantic relationships.

It is completely natural for you to want a boyfriend, but you my dear are in an excellent position to have something FAR better! Start learning HOW to be successful at relationships now, so you will be ready for a real relationship later! At your age, boys come and go, crushes happen often, and you will fall in love many times. That is part of the excitement of growing up. Just remember, now is not the time to focus on finding “Mr. Right.” It IS the time to giggle, have fun, hang out with BFF’s, take lots of selfies, talk about boys, drool over your favorite singer, dream of mansions and limousines, plan summer fun, spend time with your family, paint your nails, climb a tree, read a good book, watch a scary movie…. and a million other age appropriate fun things! I once read this saying; “High school is where you meet your bridesmaids, not your husband!” I like that a lot!

I hope you will take it upon yourself to become the relationship guru of your age group! There are plenty of books about relationships, (mine included,) there are youtube videos, and there are tons of blogs… all dedicated to teaching people how to have successful relationships. (Read the hundreds of blog posts right here: http://liveinspirednow.com/category/relationships/ ) You are not too young to learn, grow, and share your knowledge and someday, many years from now, some awesome guy will be grateful to be your boyfriend! Don’t miss out on him because you settled too soon for a “jerk.” Step into your own greatness, appreciate who you are right now, observe good and bad relationships, learn all you can, and Live Inspired Now!

A little more “yay” in your life!?

May 7, 2014 | Posted in Communication, Fun Stuff, General, Love, Relationships | By

yayThere is nothing more awesome than your significant other showing enthusiasm for you! Whenever I text Thad and tell him that I am on my way home from somewhere, he always responds with a “Yay!” Such a simple little thing but that “Yay” makes me feel so good! It tells me that he is excited for me to be back home, and that he looks forward to seeing me! ( Don’t worry, I also say “Yay” when he texts me too!  )

Does your partner know that you are excited to see them? Do you show your enthusiasm when you know they are returning home? Do you greet them with loving arms, a big hug, or a passionate kiss when they return? This is not reserved for just when they have gone away for long periods either… show some enthusiasm even when they are just coming home from work, or shopping, or from driving kids all over the planet. ( Can you tell I am playing taxi driver lately? ) How will your relationship improve if your partner feels loved, and desired?

One simple word that takes less than a couple of seconds to text or say, and it can make your lover feel completely loved, appreciated, and wanted. Say “YAY.” show your LOVE, enthusiasm, excitement, happiness, and Live Inspired Now! YAY!!!
