It’s not about the nail

There was so much conflict in the world this year (2015). At an early age, I was taught to use my words instead of aggression.

In this brilliant video entitled “It’s not about the nail”, can you see past the hilarious interaction and really get as a man from her perspective and as a woman from his perspective?   … Continue reading

The Power of Hello!

HELLO! Do you say “Hello!” to strangers when walking down the street? You can even be fancy and say “Good morning!” or “Good evening!”. Time and time again, I have seen the unfriendliest looking face turn warm and friendly using that one simple almost magical word. It’s like “please” and “thank you” Try it and be amazed. When you get a strange look or people just ignore you, smile and know that you have given them something to think about… perhaps a glimmer of hope that the world need not be a hard and cruel place. It may not feel comfortable at first. … Continue reading

Everyone has a need to feel loved but some people find it difficult to connect with others. It doesn’t help that in North American culture, women will often expect that men will ask them out.

The difference between Masculine and Feminine Energy

[Note: needs more information] Masculine and feminine energy does not mean energy from a man and energy from a woman. It is actually… One of the differences between men and women that I have learned is that the female energy in women has a natural tendency to take a small thing and make them bigger than they are because they feel so much while the masculine energy in men is constantly trying to take big things and shrink them into smaller manageable pieces. Sounds like masculine energy is better, doesn’t it? The advantage of feminine energy is the ability to … Continue reading
