The Best Valentines Gift For Loved Ones - You By Shira Litwack

OK - tough adaptation and I won't give up my career or devotion to health and fitness... however I do always say there is absolutely no better way to show love for another than by contributing to their health... now there is true love.
My issue with the notion that 1/365 days we celebrate "valentine's day" is I feel it is almost a mockery of true love. I am all for Mother's day, Father's day... thats appreciation for the people who gave us life. And showing appreciation for others is respect and in some ways humbling and gives us perspective, which is integrity building.
A lesser known attribute of February - that warm fuzzy month (NOT) for many of us, is that it is heart health month.
The heart - the ultimate sign of life. As all of us Moms had our first ultrasound we lay there so excited to hear & see that heartbeat coming from within. That moment is the sensation of true, relentless, I will sacrifice anything for this person, love.
The heart that literally pumps life throughout the body, the definition of the start, and end of life.
So... I am NOT the Grinch trying to steal Valentine's day. The hope of love is it should be coddled by loyalty, devotion, we aspire for it to be endless. We are gasping for air in a disposable world, stresses bombarding relationships every which way. Let's show our sweethearts how much we love them, and how excuse the corny line from Jerry McGuire "You Complete Me".
Let's Make this Valentine's day about true love, let's redefine and extend eternity. Here is my suggestion for a truly romantic Valentine's day:
Instead of the over sugared, waxed box of chocolates (with very little true chocolate) that will be pumping insulin and triglycerides for weeks, head to the dollar store and pick up that tacky heart shaped box. Fill it with squares of some yummy dark chocolate (the higher the cocoa content the better), some cherries, grapes,... honey, figs,bananas... and btw... all of these foods are on the top 10 list of food aphrodisiacs... and yes... show some thought went into your gift, thought of time and thought of health, thought I want to be healthy erotic & sexy with you for manyyyyyyy years.
Chocolate dip (please dark chocolate the real stuff) strawberries, roll in unsugared coconut, refrigerate... feed to your lover... yep I don't have to tell you any more.
Don't just buy cut flowers, buy a rose bush, one that will keep blooming for years to come, and when you look at it together you renew your vows of looking after each other. Thorns are good - they remind us life is full of thorny patches, and yes together we will overcome.
OK, I'm a chick flick person too, you should see what is stored on my PVR... but how bout time together to talk. Make a list together (how bout on some sexy paper, not the computer, like in your own handwriting... ) what we can each do to make each other's lives healthier, less stressed, more fulfilling. Frame it. Please, no emails, text messages... come on work with me here.
Love is helping loved ones live a quality of life unencumbered by sickness. Be fit to have the energy and joe de vivre you and your family may celebrate for years. You know the expression, live long enough to be a problem to your kids...
Happy Valentine's day... a very Meaningful, introspective Heart Health Month, and I always have to put this in there... a life of living cancer free.

Signs of a Failing Relationship By Alexandra Fox

Hi Girls!  Tell me if you've experienced this before:  Let's say you met a great new guy, and you took a liking to each other immediately.  Within a few dates, you're already in constant communication with each other.  You text every morning.  You call every few days.  You try to see each other at least once a week.  And then, one very special date, when you feel like it's time to take the relationship to the next level, you ask him if he's ready to go steady. And after a few embarrassed moments, he says YES! What follows is a great first few days of the relationship. You're ready to scream the fact to the entire world -- you're officially a couple, and you're well on your way to happily ever after!  ...Or so you thought.  Soon after the relationship started, you noticed that he's not staying in touch as often. He's not texting unless you text first.  He doesn't call as often.  He doesn't seem as interested in intimacy before.  He isn&#…

He Led a Double Life Scott Jennings lived in a world of lies, affairs, and deceit until it all fell apart. By Mary May Larmoyeux

Scott Jennings never dreamed he would cross the line. But somehow it happened. He was unhappy at home. He loved Sherry, but … well, she was the boss at her work, and she acted like the boss at home. When things needed to be done, she would tell Scott what to do. And he got tired of it. He wasn’t one to talk about his emotions. So he turned inward. He would escape to the fire station—where he was a volunteer fire fighter—and start drinking. Things got worse after the Jennings’ son, Steven, was born in 1995. Sherry wanted to be supermom and Scott was happy to let her do it. Soon he avoided being around Sherry and Steven altogether. If Sherry went to bed early with Steven, Scott stayed up late and watched TV. He often pretended that a call had come in from the volunteer fire department, but when he left the house he would head to a local bar instead. That’s where he became friends with people who seemed to really understand him. Scott also turned to a woman at work for a listening ear. E…

Why Relationships Grow Cold By Alexandra Fox

Today, I'll teach you a cool trick that can turn around 
even a cold, distant, or loveless relationship. 
Better yet, I'm also about to show you how to “revisit” 
your favorite moments in your love life, even if those 
moments came from past relationships. 
What am I talking about? Just this... 
Take a minute to remember the HAPPIEST moments of your 
love life. 
It might have been early in a past or present 
relationship, when your man was still MADLY IN LOVE

calling, or he kept giving you gifts and asking you out

completely happy... even if the relationship didn't stay 
happy for long. 
Now, imagine revisiting those HAPPY moments. Imagine 
having the ability to make YOUR love life that happy 
again... and make it STAY that happy.  
YOU CAN! And all you'll need is the “cool trick” I'm about

MOMENTS with YOU By Dennis and Barbara Rainey

June 16

Out in the Open
The man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:25

Being "naked" but "not ashamed."

This is why we get married—not just to have sex, but also to become emotionally intimate with another person. We want someone we can be openly transparent with, someone who accepts us, even when we're being our real selves.

Yet although this is what our souls long for, many couples—especially young couples—hide this need behind the mere act of sexual togetherness. They find having sex easier than opening up to each other spiritually, where the potential for hypocrisy and awkwardness always exists. Sex can be easier than opening up emotionally, letting someone else in on their fears and worries and dreams and deepest feelings.

That's why, even when the level of sexual intimacy is high in a marriage, the level of real transparency can still be surprisingly low... and subtly debilitating.

I recall a young single man stopping by Barbar…
