What is a real man?

What is a real man?


What is a real man? A real man is the one that goes above and beyond to protect you. A real man cherishes you. Ladies, I have been through a lot of crappy relationships (including the one with my own daughter's biological father). Eight years ago, I met the man that is now my husband. I had a 5 year old daughter. I was a single mom with no help whatsoever from my daughter's biological daughter. I was single, broke and a stuggling, emotional single mom.

I consider myself lucky. I met a person that became my best friend. He not only became my best friend and lover but he also became my daughter's "dad". It was weird. I wasn't looking for him. I was casually dating his former best friend. I casually went out with his best friend and met him. Him and I became friends and everything grew from there. I dumped his friend and went with him. Needless to say, I was frowned on for that. Yes, It may have been wrong. I wasn't serious with his friend though and I honestly believe that this way was God's way of seeing what I needed and putting it in my life. I don't regret one moment of it

This man changed my whole life. He took over so many stresses in life. He hurt when I hurt. He helped me grow strong. He stuck by me through all my mental breakdowns. I was a brat. I wont lie. I started reading relationship books first when we almost split up (because I cheated). Again, I was an inconsiderate brat. I started reading self help books etc. I came to a startling reality that I loved this man and I loved my daughter and I wanted us to have a good life. I wanted to break the cycle of my past. I started this blog 2 and 1/2 years ago. The amount that I have grown emotionally is astounding. I go back and I read my initial posts on this blog and I am shocked by my own writing. I never go back though on my initial thoughts. I started this self help journey because I wanted to Love Life. I wanted to be a better Mom. My daughter is my inspiration.

On another note though, it makes a huge difference in my life that my husband is such a real man. He never, ever lets me fight my inner battles alone. He has stuck by me through my worst. Now, he reaps the benefits of my best. I'm strong now. You know what? He deserves my best and I love him. He stuck by me through my worst of emotional battles. He was the father to my daughter that he never had to be. Now, my daughter is turning 14. They are the best of friends and he's always here no matter what. When I'm stressed, he knows it. He handles it. I don't have to ask. He cherishes me and my daughter (the same as we cherish him) Our family is happy and secure :-) That's all I ever really truly wanted.

Ladies, I can't stress the importance of having a man that really cherishes you. Don't just settle. Know what the answer to the question "What is a real man"? See more at www.winningatlove.com

Valued opinion quotes

Valued opinion quotes




Do you enjoy learning as well as making other people happy?

Almost everyone feels that their own opinions are good ones, otherwise they wouldn't be sharing them with you. One of the destructive things that many of us do, however, is compare someone else's opinion to our own. When it doesn't fall in line with our own beliefs, we either dismiss it or find fault with it. What does this do? It makes you feel smug, the other person feel diminished, and we learn nothing.

Almost every opinion has some merit, especially if we are looking for merit, rather than looking for errors. The next time that someone offers you an opinion, rather than judge or criticize it, see if you can find a grain of truth in what the person is saying.

If you really think about it, when you judge someone else or their opinion, it really doesn't say anything about the other person, bit it says quite a bit about your need to be judgmental.

Broken trust quotes

Broken trust quotes



Once trust is broken, I'm not sure you can ever really get it back. At least not like it was before the trust was broken. The only way to make any relationship that has broken trust work again is to establish a new trust based on a new commitment.

Trust applies to all relationships. Most people consider trust as a factor that exists only in a marriage or romantic relationship. But trust is a factor in all relationships (Parent/child, work, friends, family members etc). Each of these relationships relies on trust. Once that trust is broken, the relationship changes. The relationship pays a price.

Before you lie, steal, spread a rumor, cheat, talk behind someone's back or needlessly disappoint someone, think about the consequences of your actions. If your relationship with another has been violated, don't think you can repair it. You can't. You can only start over by building a new relationship with that person based on a new level of trust.



Take some time everyday for inspiration and laughter. It's so important in your life. It makes you a better, happier person.

Freedom in relationships quotes

Freedom in relationship quotes


Many people think that relationships are based on a commitment and that commitment takes away from your freedom. Can you have both? Commitment and freedom? Absolutely. Freedom is necessary to have order in a strong commitment.

We all need time for ourselves. Time to do the things we like to do without fear of taking away time from the other person. Men need to be able hang out with their guy friends without fear of repercussion from their wives or girlfriends. Women need to do the very same thing.

Encourage your partner to participate in activies and interests that have nothing to do with you. It's OK to have some separate parts of your lives. It's actually important to your relationship.





The importance of discipline quote

The importance of discipline quote


As I write this post this morning, I write it with a sense of frustration. Frustration with our society today. This past Monday was my daughter's very first day of high school. A day that should have been a joyous day. Instead of it being a day filled with positive energy, it was a day that a 15 year old boy took a gun to her best friend's school and shot another child. A day that should have been a good day, it turned into a day of fear.

It seems that every other day now, we are hearing about school shootings. This one though hit me harder than most because it happened right here in my own community. A community that is a good community with good schools. Every school shooting takes a piece of my heart and scares me to death. It makes me scared to send my daughter to school. I should feel that she's safe when she goes there.

Now, I am going to get to the point of this post- The importance of discipline. The importance of active parenting. All over the internet, people talk everday the importance of being against bullying. They blame kids being bullied for kids shooting other children. Yes, I do believe that this is partially true. Let's be realistic though. Bullying has always been around. It's nothing new. It was around when I was younger. It existed when my own parents and grandparents were younger. The difference though is back in those days, kids fought with words. Kids had discipline in their lives. Kids were fearful of their parents. If a kid misbehaved or got in trouble with teachers etc, there were consequences. Yes, they got spanked. They knew they were going to get their butts whipped and there were consequences.

Nowadays, it seems kids are running their parents. If a teacher calls home to say the child was disrespectful or has bad behavior, the parents seem to blame the teacher. Disrespectful and bad behavior is being condoned and justified by parents. I see it everyday. I go to the grocery store and kids are screaming at their parents and throwing temper tantrums and the parents are just buying them something or doing anything to pacify and stop the tantrums. You know the little kids that I am talking about. You see them all in the mall and in restaurants. They are acting up so bad that you just want to jerk them up yourself and take control of the situation. These kids drive me crazy. I have to remind myself though that little kids are not bad at all. It isn't the kid's fault that they are running around the restaurant screaming like a crazy person, it's the parent's fault. Little kids behave exactly the way that they are ALLOWED to behave. They push their limits. They are kids. It's a part of growing up. It is the parent's responsibility to set limits and boundaries for the child to live within, then discipline if they don't. That's not being done in a lot of families nowadays. What is this doing? It is teaching our children that this type of behavior is OK. It's NOT!. What happens next? The children are growing up spoiled and disrespectful. They are growing up with no respect towards another human life.

Don't get me wrong. I am not blaming all parents for their child's adult behavior. I am well aware that you could be a great parent who is strict with your child and they may still take a wrong path in life. I am not talking about everyone in this post. Majority rules though. In most cases, you raise your child with discipline and integrity, your child carries that with them through their own life. I am saying though that some of our youth's problems today stem from parents being too busy with everything else and NOT active parenting. You need to discipline your child from the start of their life. You need to be there for your child. You need to monitor all their activities. You need to monitor their internet use.

You must love your kids enough to discipline them. A lack of discipline is simply a lack of love. I am not saying that you should spank them. Just be consistent in your discipline. If your child acts up, damn it, there needs to be consequences. Children need to know that right choices get rewards. Bad choices get punishment. Don't relent on the punishment either. Follow through on your word. Laptops, IPhones etc are not the greatest gift that you can give to your children. Life lessons are!

Have a great Wednesday.

Imperfection quotes - Nobody's perfect

Imperfection quotes - Nobody's perfect


Have you ever met an absolute perfectionist whose life was filled with inner peace? The need for perfection and the desire for inner peace conflict with each other. Whenever we are attached to something in a certain way, better than it already is, we are pretty much engaging in a losing battle. Rather than being content and grateful for what we have, we are focused on what's wrong with something and our need to fix it. When we are zoned in on what's wrong, it shows that we dissatisfied and discontent.

The solution to this problem is to catch yourself when you fall into your habit of insisting that things should be other than the way that they are. Gently remind yourself that life is okay the way that it is, right now. As you begin to eliminate your need for perfection in all areas of your life, you will begin to discover the perfection in life itself.

What I believe quote

What I believe quote




I believe that life is simple. We complicate it and don't need to. Your results are your own fault. Love, service, and giving must be the motives of your life.
Money comes to you as the result of serving others.
Service almost always comes disguised as work.
Being healthy is a choice.
People can change but only when they want to and never when you want them to.

Most people are lazy and need to get off their butts and do something. Laziness, whining and refusing to take responsibility kill your chances of success. Results never lie.

Guilt serves no purpose. Worry is a waste of time and energy.
Happiness comes only when you rise above the approval of others.

Everything in life gets better when you get better and nothing gets better until you get better

Talking about problems inspirational quote

Talking about problems inspirational quote


Talking about our problems with our friends and family can be healthy for our soul. There's a difference though in talking about real problems and talking about problems that you are just creating for yourself.

It's important to keep in mind that nobody likes to be around a constant complainer. It's a downer. Save the talking about your problems for your really legitimate ones.

Focus on the joys in your life.

Nobody is perfect inspiration


If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people.

When we recognize our own flaws and our own strengths, we can share them with others. We can help ourselves and help others.

I know what I do well and what I don't do well. I know the mistakes that I have made in the past and the successes that I have had. I don't need to paint a false picture to others because I know I'm not perfect and I'm OK with that :-)

Believe in yourself and your strengths. Accept your flaws and don't beat yourself up :-)

Missing someone in heaven inspiration

Missing someone in heaven inspiration

Death is always a terrible tragedy when we lose someone that we really love. No matter how many years go by, you never stop missing them. My brother was killed back in 1988 and I still miss him terribly. Wounds heal with time but you always have that void in your life.

Listening to people smarter than you

Listening to people smarter than you

There are people that know more than you do. I know that may be hard to believe :-) Folks who are successful are usually more than willing to help others, but never get asked. Few ask and even fewer take action when they have been given the answer. When you ask someone who knows more than you do, take their advice and learn from it. Remember, they know what to do and have done it.

Do you want to know a quick way to find someone who knows more than you do? Look at their results. Results don't lie. If their results are better than yours, then they know something that you don't. Or maybe they are just willing to do more than you are willing to do. Pay attention. Learn. Spend time with those who are doing better than you. Watch them. Listen to them. Figure out what they are doing and then go do it yourself.

Grandmom

Grandmom

What would we do without our moms? Our children's grandmom!
I often hear the saying that "it takes a village to raise a child". I didn't need a village to raise my own daughter but I will say that I needed "Grandmom". My daughter will be 14 next week and I can honestly say that I have no clue how I would have it made it these past 14 years without grandmom :-). Grandmom is the best babysitter.

The only difference is that grandmom had a heck of a lot more patience than I did. She's been there. She's already traveled the road that I am traveling now. Honestly, I think she enjoys it so much because it's like a revenge thing for all the bad things that I did back when I was a teenager haha. Grandmoms are awesome so this one is for all the grandmoms that help in the raising of their grandchildren. I love my mom :-) She's my best friend.

Importance of having a positive attitude towards life

Importance of having a positive attitude towards life


Having a positive attitude towards life is important. It will help you deal with things that happen to you, but it won't keep things from happening to you.

Attitude alone won't change things. Efforts, thoughts and words change things. It's what you think about, talk about, and do something about that comes about. Having a positive attitude towards life helps you a lot with the three most important factors in changing your life (Thinking, talking and doing).

Establishing priorities in life

Establishing priorities in life

Do you have things in your life that need be done - things that you really want to see accomplished - yet you just haven't been able to find the time to get them done? Now is the time to face the fact that those things are never going to get done until they become a priority in your life. Figure out what is important to you and start establishing priorities in life.

In life, the things that you don't want to do have to be your priority. Things like cleaning the house, taking care of the kids, taking care of your family, accomplishing honey-do's or simply meeting up with a repairman. Life dictates that we have to do these things. Life is full of have-to's. There is no way around that. I have done them. You have done them. Welcome to life. The key is to figure out how to get them done and still have time to do what you want to do, right?

Please stop saying that there isn't enough time. There is plenty of time to do what is really important to you. Stop being frustrated and get into control. There is actually plenty of time to establish priorities in your life for the things that you really want to do. If you want it badly enough, you will find the time or make the time. It's your life and it's your time- Make the most of it.

Story of love inspiration

Story of love inspiration


When we love someone, we can become our best selves. Of course we want to be loved in return, and we want our love to last.
But even when that doesn't happen, we know that we are better for having been able to love. And if we can love once, we can love again.

We grow each time we love. We grow as people.

The story of love is not important-- What is important is that one is capable of love.
