Who Needs Vicodin When You Have Love?

Standard

It’s almost 5 am, and instead of sleeping, I’m up writing. In search of a little inspiration, I found myself, where else? FACEBOOK, of course. I truly believe that nothing happens by chance, so it’s no surprise that Jillian Michaels (Biggest Loser), posted this wonderful article that made me want to go write. It was so great that I couldn’t wait until the morning to share it. It’s great news for  a hopeless romantic, love pusher like me. Continue reading

Resistance: The incomparable bully

Standard

Part of the Get Free, Get Happy Series…

“What you resist will persist”…

What does that mean to you? From my experience, it means having my priorities all discombobulated.  It means being so caught up in what people will think, say, feel about my life that I forget that my ultimate goal for me is peace and happiness, so fear and resentment stick around a little longer–actually as long as I allow it to stay, it does.

In my life, “supposed” ; it’s such an ugly word. I held on so tight to the lie of what my life was “supposed” to be (false perceptions handed down by family, friends, peers, society), that I didn’t realize that all I had to do was let go of “supposed” to reveal the truth that was already there whether I like it or not.

Wake Up To Your Soulmate

The Get Free, Get Happy Series: Episode 4.0

What is this all about?

Well, how could I ever write a series about happiness, without touching on the subject relationship? I could actually create a major motion picture on all the ways that my failed expectations of friends, mates and potential partners have affected my level of happiness in my 31 years of life. And I can’t say that I have it all figured out; but what I can say is that there are universal rules to this game called life, and who we attract is always going to have something to do with who we are. I think we all understand this concept, regardless of whether or not we conceptualize it. For women, we spent tons of money on beauty products, countless hours to get shiny and appear brand new, tans, waxes, nip this and tuck that–and not to mention fitness fads and diet fixes. Men do it, too. We all go to great lengths to look great and fit the part of partner for our soul mate (if we believe in that sort of thing), or even to attract friends. Most adults that I know complain often about lack of meaningful connections, and some of us have given up all hope.

What do you think about soulmates? Are you searching and your are efforts to reel in our soulmate are coming from the right place?

Here’s something to ponder on Continue reading

What do you think? Are our efforts to reel in our soul mate are coming from the right place?

I will leave you with this definition for today.

soul: the principle of life, feeling, thought and action in humans, regarded as a distinct entity seperate from the body, and commonly held to be separable in existance from the body; the spiritual part of humans as distinct from the physical part.

Don’t worry, it only seems kinky the first time.  ~Author Unknown

Again, I want to keep Friday’s short and sweet around here. So, today I want to share with you a very interesting articled that I found on Webmd.com. There was a study done that proved that sex “enters so strongly (and) positively in happiness equations” that they estimate increasing intercourse from once a month to once a week is equivalent to the amount of happiness generated by getting an additional $50,000 in income for the average American “; and, Overall, the happiest folks are those getting the most sex — married people, who report 30% more between-the-sheets action than single folks. In fact, the economists calculate that a lasting marriage equates to happiness generated by getting an extra $100,000 each year. Divorce, meanwhile, translates to a happiness depletion of $66,000 annually (Dartmouth College economist David Blanchflower and Andrew Oswald of the University of Warwick in England).

Way to stay happy!!! I hope I just confirmed some weekend plans for some of you:-)

Here’s the article: Sex Better Than Money for Happiness

Coach Dee’s Top 10 Sexiest Video’s (in no particular order. Drum-roll please!):

  1. Rock the Cradle of Love, Billy Idol: O.K., so, because I love this song so much, I refuse to believe it’s about underaged girls. Billy was like 50 in this video, rocking the cradle could have been 35, lol.
  2. Flashing Lights, Kanye West: The message in this video is to not ignore your gf. She gets mad, lol!
  3. Justify My Love, Madonna: I used to sneak and watch this video when I was younger. I don’t think I knew why it was so bad, I just knew it was forbidden. Nothing says sexy like TABOO!
  4. Divinyls, Touch Myself: Here’s to Monogamy!
  5. Simply Irresistible, Robert Palmer: Simplicity is sexy, too.
  6. Within You, Final Scene From the Labyrinth, David Bowie: I’m not really sure why a man in tights is sexy, but there was something about the intensity of this scene that I love.
  7. Forrest Scene from Twilight: So who said these were gonna be all music videos? Again, it’s the intensity! TEAM EDWARD, BABY!!!
  8. Beautiful Liar, Shakira and Beyonce: This video needs to words.
  9. Maniac Scene, Jennifer Beale Dance Scene from Flashdance: Here’s to passion, leg warmers and body doubles!!!
  10. How Does it Feel, D’Angelo: Well, the Prince like falsetto, the eye sex that he’s giving, the fact that he obviously had his body waxed to give us sexy are all reasons why this video is wonderful. You get a A+ for this one D (we miss you)!

Honorable Mention: How Does it Feel parody from the Jamie Foxx Show; Why? Because laughter and silliness is sexy!
