Clarksville, TN – You said you weren’t making any more resolutions, but you know that’s a lie.

Here are 5 resolutions you should reconsider.
To Lose Weight–Yes, I know, losing weight by exercising and eating right is healthy for many of us, but be careful of your motive.

Clarksville, TN – Is your compass broken? Lost? Never owned one?
We all feel lost sometimes. It’s a freaky feeling. You feel frustrated, confused, even panic stricken. You pull over, palms sweating, try to find your bearings, double check your directions, reset your navigation.

Clarksville, TN – Do you want a great marriage? I’ve got good news… it’s completely up to you, not your spouse.

Clarksville, TN – Extended eye contact, suggestive comments, double entendres…yeah, I did that.
Some say flirting is okay, even healthy, that it keeps there marriage on its toes.
I disagree and here’s why. When I flirted with men during my first marriage, it was because I was unhappy. I was lonely. I wanted approval from others. I risked my female relationships for this approval at times, not to mention my self-respect. «Read the rest of this article»

Love Isn’t Enough
This is the part where I tell you what’s wrong with America. We tell girls that being “loved” is the most important thing in the world (after being beautiful, right?). We show them fairy tale romances and doting, chivalrous men fulfilling their every whim. In the U.S., more women do the leaving, a striking 2/3 of the time! «Read the rest of this article»
Valentine’s Day is for women. Everyone knows that. If this holiday was for men, it would be called “Respect Day’ because men need respect. Women need love, therefore they appreciate the concept of Valentine’s Day because it celebrates love, and therefore it celebrates women.
But Valentine’s comes with a lot of pressure.

So ladies, let’s put ourselves in our fella’s shoes for a minute and imagine what he probably wants for Valentine’s. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN - Some people expect too much. Some would even like the world dipped in chocolate and spoon fed to them. Frankly, there are times when we all expect too much. We would love for our homes to be picture perfect, our kids to be genius world-class athletes, and our pie to be fat free.
