Talkin' Love: February is the month when we are most likely to examine our relationships. Every one wants to find love, hold on to it, or improve it. We all have an idea of what makes or breaks a relationship. Are there universal habits, actions, and reactions than can improve a relationship? Ruin one?
Join me live for Successful Relationships: Are They Impossible to Achieve? Too Difficult? Or Do We Make Them So? on the Here We Are Radio Show, Saturday, February 19, at 1:00 pm EST. Guest, David Simonsen, Marriage & Family Therapist, and author of the new E-book, 3 Simple Steps: How To Be The Woman of Your Man's Dreams, will help us uncover the answers to these questions and more. If you are feeling lonely, unfulfilled, or unhappy in your relationship, maybe it's time to reassess what you are doing or NOT doing to have the relationship you desire.
Gifts of Love: It's time to be kind... Take the Random Acts of Kindness Challenge and do something special for someone else each day from February 14 - 20th. If only everyone exhibited this behavior 365 days a year, then it wouldn't be called a "challenge"... Even so, sharing a kindness any day is a gift that spreads love and will make another person's life a bit better, brighter, and easier.

Be The Love: Before you can love anyone else and anyone else can love you, you must first be full of love for yourself. Know what you want and accept nothing less.
Flower of The Month: February's flower is the Violet. Its general meaning is modesty, and it is known to calm tempers and induce sleep. Blue violets mean watchfulness and faithfulness; while white violets say "let's take a chance on happiness."
The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness. ~ Thérèse of Lisieux
