Top 10 tips for your new year's resolutions

New Years ResolutionOn January 1, we typically make New Year’s resolutions that focus on ourselves: to eat better, exercise more, start a new hobby or become more organized.  What if this year, you resolved to have a better relationship with your spouse and become a better role model for your children?  In today’s post, I am giving you 10 simple tips from Fight Less, Love More that will work to keep peace in the family and make your love connection stronger. You might be surprised to find that I am not going to tell you to talk more as many experts might insist; instead I am going to show you how to use just a few minutes a day to talk better.
1.  Pick the Right Battles. 
Before you get angry and reprimand your mate for making a mistake or doing something you told him or her not to do, stop and ask yourself this one wise question: “Does this affect me?”  If it doesn’t, button your lip.  After all, your mate is the one who must deal with the consequence, not you.
2. Be a Detective. 
When your mate’s mistake does affect you, what then? Rather than being hostile, find out what really happened.  Ask neutral and respectful questions like, “Can you tell me what happened?” or “I don’t understand.  Am I missing something here?”  You might discover a good reason for the oversight or blunder which could avoid a blow-up.
3. Complain with Impact. 
When you have a complaint, say what you do want, not what you don’t want.  For example, rather than saying “Get off that darn computer, you’re so rude!” target your mate using a positive approach, “I miss your company.  Can you join me in the living room for a drink?”
4. Skip the “Whatever” Word.
Being passive by often saying “whatever you want,” might temporarily avoid a fight, but it could breed resentment because it leaves the majority of decisions to your mate, which can be stressful.  Instead, have a real opinion and share it.  To find out about your relationship communication style and whether it’s harming your relationship, take this quiz, “Are You Mismatched?”
5. Create Policies. If your mate does something that affects and disturbs you such as overspending or making plans for both of you without asking the other first, don’t get sucked into the heated “how could you?” argument. Instead, focus on the future by creating policy solutions, as in, “from now on can we agree to make a budget for our personal expenses?” or “can we agree to check-in with each other before me make plans for both of us?”
6. Show You Care.
Forgetting to ask about what’s going on in your mate’s daily life is a surefire way to erode a relationship.  From now on, if you know your mate has an important meeting, doctor appointment or event that day, don’t neglect it, instead respect it. Call, email, text or ask in person, “How did it go?” This sends a clear message: I care about you.
7. Avoid Factual Arguments. 
Do you and your mate often find yourselves arguing about the name of a restaurant you went to, a certain address, someone’s birthday, an historical fact or sports figure?  Then you are prone to having a dumb argument!  Stop the conversation and do an online fact check, call a friend or simply drive by the location.
8. Apologize with the “B” word.Fight Less Love More
Quickly saying the words “I’m sorry” is a bad apology because it often comes off as insincere, and could trigger another battle.  Next time you seek mercy, add the “B” word:  Say, “I’m sorry because….” and share how you hurt your mate and what you will do to prevent the wrongdoing from recurring.  Research shows that when you add the “because clause” your words are more persuasive.
9. Create Border Control.
Are you ever angry with your partner for revealing something to others that you consider private, like a health issue, a child discipline issue, job insecurity or a marital disagreement?  If so, bypass the “how could you say that?!” argument.  Instead, establish border control:  Outline the topics that should remain private to insure that neither of you becomes an accidental traitor.
10. Give a Daily Dose of Recognition.
Most couples on the divorce path seldom compliment each other. In our on-line survey for “Fight Less, Love More,” we asked people “would you rather your mate compliment you for being kind or good-looking?” the result was that 84 percent of people said “kind.” The lesson: find daily opportunities to recognize your mate for something that reflects a character strength (i.e. you are such a wonderful mother/father, you are so thoughtful when you…).

Top 8 New Year's Resolutions for love


Some of us make New Year’s Resolutions to clean up our eating habits or re-think our bank accounts, and some of us are planning to make our relationships better (or, ahem, make them exist at all).  To find out what resolutions are mostly recommended for a better year in love:


1. Stay in the Moment – “Don’t look back at what you’ve done wrong. Don’t think ahead [...] Just enjoy the moment and enjoy the person you’re with.” –Patti Stanger, star of Bravo TV’s “Millionaire Matchmaker” reality show
2. Be Honest – “We see so many people that are hiding things from their partner, and that is always the downfall of the relationship, because nothing erodes trust faster.” – Deborah Y. Luxenberg, divorce lawyer with Luxenberg, Johnson & Dickens
3. Love Can’t Cure Everything – “Love is not a medicine for all your emotional ills. [...] Keep in mind that your partner is not your parent. They can only provide what they are capable of giving, based on who they are and where they are in life.” – Audrey Chapman, host of “The Audrey Chapman Show” on WHUR (96.3 FM)
4. Improve Yourself First – “Resolve to work on your emotional intelligence in order to improve your chances for finding healthy and satisfying love.” –Toni Coleman, dating coach
5. Man Up – “I watch too many couples fight, disconnect and break up because our brains are instinctively wired to protect against hurt. It takes courage in the face of potential hurt to challenge the assumptions you make about your partner or the world, but when you start down this path, you create possibilities where there may have been none.” – Keith Miller, couples counselor
6. Brush It Off – “Start choosing not to take things personally. When someone says something that’s a little off, or doesn’t return a call, or forgets something you said, resist the impulse to take offense. Instead, consider that there’s an explanation that doesn’t involve you at all.” – Carolyn Hax, Washington Post advice columnist
7. Be Available – “People who are not in a relationship need to resolve not to give up hope. And to go out and tell all their friends that they are looking and make themselves available to meeting new people.” – Dr. Ruth Westheimer, sex therapist
8. Think Positive (and Realistic) – The most effective way to boost happiness in a basically good relationship is to focus and strengthen what is already working. That positive energy makes you feel good and motivates you to keep going in the same direction. Optimism and a positive outlook also attract others to you. And stop buying into relationship myths. Learn the realities of relationships. The biggest reason couples split up isn’t sex, conflict or lack of communication – instead, it’s frustration. Specifically, frustration from unrealistic expectations about love, the opposite sex and relationships.” – Terri Orbuch, author of “5 Simple Steps to Take Your Marriage From Good to Great”

Saguittarius

Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.


Sagittarians are usually modest and are often religious, with a strong sense of morality, though they tend to overemphasize the ethical codes they follow and worship beliefs about God rather than God Himself. This means that, negatively, they regard rigid, unloving, intolerant adherence to ritual and conventional codes as more important than the truths they symbolize or embody. They sometimes pay lip service to religions and political parties in which they have ceased to believe because the outward forms satisfy them, yet they may not hesitate to switch allegiance in politics or change their system of belief if they see personal advantage to themselves in doing so.

They have both profound and widely ranging minds, equipped with foresight and good judgement, and they can be witty conversationalists. They love to initiate new projects (they make excellent researchers) and have an urge to understand conceptions that are new to them. they think rapidly, are intuitive and often original, but are better at adapting than inventing and are at their best when working with colleagues of other types of character that compliment their own. They are strong-willed and good at organizing, a combination that gives them the ability to bring any project they undertake to a successful conclusion. Their generosity can be balanced by their extreme care at handling their resources.

Sagittarians are ardent, sincere and straightforward in love, normally conventional and in control of their sexual natures. Yet if thwarted, they may easily allow their failure to embitter their whole lives or they may revenge themselves upon the opposite sex by becoming cynically promiscuous. They are more apt then the average to make an uncongenial alliance.

If their marriages are successful, they will be faithful spouses and indulgent parents; but their innate restlessness will inspire them to use even the most satisfying ménage as a base from which to set out on their travels. They need to fell free and are often faced with the choice of allowing their careers to take over their lives at the expense of the love of their spouse and family. Sagittarian women are the counterparts of their men; even if they have no career to rival their love, they find it difficult to express affection and may run the risk of being thought frigid.

In other personal relationships they are reliable, seldom betraying any trust given to them. They can, however, be impulsively angry and both male and female Sagittarians know how to be outspoken and exactly what expressions will hurt their adversaries most. On the other hand they are magnanimous in forgiving offenses and are responsible when looking after the elderly in the family.

Their gifts fit Sagittarians for a number of widely differing professions. They are natural teachers and philosophers with a talent for expounding the moral principles and laws which seem to explain the universe. This gift enables them to be successful churchmen on the one hand and scientists on the other. The law and politics also suit them, as does public service, social administration, public relations and advertising. Travel and exploration naturally appeal to such restless souls and, if their opportunities are limited, they may find something of travel and change of scene in the armed forces or through working as a travelling salesman. Others may make fine musicians and, in the days before automobiles, they were said to be successful at horse trading and all activities, including sporting ones, concerning horses. This has been translated in modern terms into an interest in cars and aircraft - and again with emphasis on the sporting side racing, rallying etc. They are said to make good sports coaches, but their tastes in this direction may lead them into imprudent gambling, though the gambling instinct may be sublimated by carrying it out professionally as a bookmaker.

The vices to which Sagittarians are prone are anger they tend to flare up over trifles; impatience - they want to rush every new project through immediately and demand too much of colleagues who cannot work at the pace they require; and scorn of the inadequacies of others while expecting fulsome recognition of their own efforts. They may in one sense deserve recognition, because in completing a major project they will sacrifice their health and family relationships; in their family's eyes they may merit condemnation.

They can be exacting, domineering and inconsiderate in the work place; and boastful, vulgar and extravagant in their private lives. Their restlessness, if excessive, can jeopardize more than their own stability. some Sagittarians risk becoming playboys, wasting their lives away in frivolous pursuits. Others can develop a moralizing, religious fanaticism or else turn into hypocrites, their inner prudishness disguised by an outward appearance of joviality. Another side of the religiosity which is a danger in Sagittarians is superstition.

Possible Health Concerns...
Sagittarius governs the hips, thighs and sacral area; subjects suffer from ailments of the hips and thighs and are liable to sciatica and rheumatism. An alleged deficiency of silicon in their physiques can give them poor skin, nails and hair.

As they are often sportsmen indulging in dangerous pursuits, they are prone to accidents which arise from these. The ancient astrologers mention falls from horses and hurts from them and other four-footed beasts. The taking of risks in other sports is a danger to the modern Sagittarian, and he is also liable to accidents with fire and heat.

LIKES
  • Traveling
  • getting to the heart of the matter
  • Freedom
  • Laws and meanings
  • the general 'feel' of things
DISLIKES
  • Off the wall theories
  • being tied down domestically
  • Being constrained
  • cooling your heels
  • bothered with details

PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS

As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Sagittarius you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.

PROBLEM:  Others have no time for you as you are apt to have too many irons in the fire at any given time. 
SOLUTION:  Be sure that you have a 'product' to match all the 'advertising' you do. Is it fact or is it fiction?

PROBLEM:  Others cease to confide in you or to take you seriously.
SOLUTION:  Try not to exaggerate or be contentious with others as this could be embarrassing if they feel you are not trustworthy.

PROBLEM:  Feeling lost and disillusioned.
SOLUTION:  Focus upon one thing that will satisfy you and work toward that point.

PROBLEM:  You seem anchored in one spot, unable to move forward.
SOLUTION: You should try to think more positive thoughts and set some short term goals that you can reach, then set more. In this way you will move ahead in your endeavors.

Your ruling planet is JUPITER

Some more interesting facts about your sign:

The animal associated with you sign is the centaur.
The Greek love for the horse led to the ennoblement of the centaur in myth and legend. The Centaur Chiron was known for his wisdom and healing abilities. Nessus was killed by Hercules for trying to rape a woman under his charge, and other centaurs were renowned for their weakness for drink. The centaur symbolizes mankinds dual nature as an intellectual creature (the human half) which was also a physical animal (the horse half).

The color of choice for Sagittarius is RICH PURPLE

Your Starstone is the TOPAZ
Topaz, the gem comes in many different colors and is a member of the quartz group. It aids in bringing forth your leadership qualities and enables you to grasp control of any situation you confront in life. Topaz makes you feel more in control of yourself or the situations you encounter and helps you deal with them in a competent fashion. It helps you take the lead and handle things in a competent fashion. Tradition has it that Topaz helped foretell the future, enhance sexual energy, and promote harmony.

The True meaning of Christmas


Just a week before Christmas I had a visitor. This is how it happened. I just finished the household chores for the night and was preparing to go to bed, when I heard a noise in the front of the house. I opened the door to the front room and to my surprise, Santa himself stepped out next to the fireplace.

"What are you doing?" I started to ask. The words choked up in my throat and I saw he had tears in his eyes. His usual jolly manner was gone. Gone was the eager, boisterous soul we all know. He then answered me with a simple statement . . .


"TEACH THE CHILDREN!" I was puzzled. What did he mean? He anticipated my question and with one quick movement brought forth a miniature toy bag from behind the tree. As I stood bewildered, Santa said, "Teach the children!


Teach them the old meaning of Christmas. The meaning that now-a-days Christmas has forgotten. "Santa then reached in his bag and pulled out a FIR TREE and placed it before the mantle. "Teach the children that the pure green color of the stately fir tree remains green all year round, depicting the everlasting hope of mankind, all the needles point heavenward, making it a symbol of man's thoughts turning toward heaven." 


He again reached into his bag and pulled out a brilliant STAR. "Teach the children that the star was the heavenly sign of promises long ago. God promised a Savior for the world, and the star was the sign of fulfillment of His promise." 



He then reached into his bag and pulled out a CANDLE. "Teach the children that the candle symbolizes that Christ is the light of the world, and when we see this great light we are reminded of He who displaces the darkness."


Once again he reached into his bag and removed a WREATH and placed it on the tree. "Teach the children that the wreath symbolizes the real nature of love. Real love never ceases. Love is one continuous round of affection."


He then pulled from his bag an ORNAMENT of himself. "Teach the children that I, Santa Claus, symbolize the generosity and good will we feel during the month of December."



He then brought out a HOLLY LEAF. "Teach the children that the holly plant represents immortality. It represents the crown of thorns worn by our Savior. The red holly berries represent the blood shed by Him.


Next he pulled from his bag a GIFT and said, "Teach the children that God so loved the world that he gave his begotten son." Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.


Santa then reached in his bag and pulled out a CANDY CANE and hung it on the tree. "Teach the children that the candy cane represents the shepherds' crook. The crook on the staff helps to bring back strayed sheep to the flock. The candy cane is the symbol that we are our brother's keeper." 


He reached in again and pulled out an ANGEL. "Teach the children that it was the angels that heralded in the glorious news of the Savior's birth. The angels sang Glory to God in the highest, on earth peace and good will toward men." 


Suddenly I heard a soft twinkling sound, and from his bag he pulled out a BELL,. "Teach the children that as the lost sheep are found by the sound of the bell, it should ring mankind to the fold. The bell symbolizes guidance and return. 


Santa looked back and was pleased. He looked back at me and I saw that the twinkle was back in his eyes. He said, "Remember, teach the children the true meaning of Christmas and do not put me in the center, for I am but a humble servant of the One that is, and I bow down to worship him, our LORD, our GOD."

Best Halloween Candy

National holiday, test your courage. And Halloween marked the start of the holiday season. If you are not exercising enough, read on how to minimize the consumption of this year's Halloween candy.

Small Candy Jars

Most of us, adults, love chocolate. Candy's shape, size and taste. You can not resist the sweets to the children may be cold, and vice versa. Instead of buying candy for your love, your children like to buy anything. Hard and gummy texture of sour candy popular with children. The candy is usually no fat. Unlike chocolate, which is a kind of candy that you usually do not overeat. In the office, workers do not show the other side of the candy jar on their table. If you do not see it, you will not be tempted. If you must have your sugar, save it, you can really enjoy it. Loss of self, and there could be counterproductive and may lead to overeating.

Halloween Candy Dish

You can chew sugarless gum to make your mouth just to do something. When you chew something, it is unlikely that you will pop up another candy in your mouth. Satisfy your sweet tooth it is to overcome the urge to eat sweet candy. Instead of candy, you can fill your tank nuts, dried fruits, vegetables. It may not be completely free, but it is heat than candy. If you have a hard time ignoring the candy jar, move it. If you need to stand up, get candy, it may not be worth the effort.

Bulk Halloween Candy


Bite-size chocolate bar is hard to resist. They're cute, fun, looks harmless enough. However, they contain an average of 100 calories each. If you let yourself, can not seem to stop, count your candy wrappers. You will be amazed how quickly it can suppress your appetite. Skip meals, do not eat your food, always on time. Hunger weaken your resolve to resist sweets. Drinking water or tea can divert attention from eating candy. Thirst is sometimes mistaken for hunger.

Special Gift For Kids

Sunday was not only Father's Day, but also my hubby's birthday. He specifically told me not to go all out... and he really meant it! I decided to keep it low key and we played this awesome game I found on the FamilyFun website.

I tweaked it a little to make it World Cup themed, but other than that, I just followed the instructions on their website. Here's what I did (and here are a few things that were left out of their instructions): First, get a hold of 9 wire hangers (I got mine from my mom because I don't have any- maybe I need to dry clean a little more). Untwist and bend each hanger like so: Clip the curved part off the end leaving the curly bits- they will help the wicket stay in the ground). To make it all World Cuppy, I printed 2 copies each of 9 countries' flags that my hubby either loves or hates. Then cut them out, glue each pair back to back and laminate with clear packing tape.


Turn your attention to the wickets next and using colored plastic tape, wrap the wire in which ever color and design that tickles your fancy- we just stuck to the flag colors. Attach your flags to the top of the wicket with clear tape and you're ready to play. This game is just like croquet only instead of wooden balls and mallets, you use your foot and a soccer/playground ball. Make a course pressing the wickets into the ground. How large/small/difficult/easy you make the course is up to you.

Taking turns, each player gets one kick a turn to get their own ball through the wicket course. The first one to make it through all nine wickets wins. Simple and pretty easy to adapt to most ages and abilities. We played this quite a few times and because everything is still in great shape, I'm sure this will become a summer staple. Wouldn't this be fun at a soccer practice or birthday party?

Beauty Homemade Birthday Gift Idea



They came bearing gifts. Kings came to see the child who was born in the cave that first Christmas night. They had been expecting his birth. They left their homes in the East and followed a star. They knew this child was something more than special. Every child is special but this one was different. They brought him gifts. Three gifts. Gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Why those three things? Tradition tells us the gold was for a king. The frankincense pointed to his priesthood, he was a priest of the Most High God. The myrrh was use for anointing the body of the dead. Its fragrant perfume foretold the day he would die.


The gifts of the kings tell us something about who they understood that child to be. They tell us who he was, is and shall always be. I find that they also tell me how to walk through this holiday season.

They myrrh let's each of us know that there is often pain amidst the celebrations of our lives. Pain can keep us from celebrating if we allow that to be. Or, it can remind us to celebrate what wonderful things remain in our lives. For those who have buried someone they love, the pain reminds us how much we cared and how much we are able to love.

Some have experienced losses of other kinds in the past year. Divorce, loss of a job, diagnosis of a serious illness, recognition that we have not been loved as we might want to be loved. The myrrh stands for all these things.

The gold is a very special reminder for each of us. Especially if we have known pain in the last year. The gold is that which we must strive to seek. Not the gold of money and stuff, but the gold that lasts. Each day brings gold into our lives if we will look for it. The gold of the smile of a friendly waiter, the gold of friendship, the gold of sight and breath. The gold of a child's laughter and the sun on the snow. The more we look for the gold in our lives and take the time to appreciate and be grateful for it, the more we can find joy in the midst of change or pain.


And the frankincense, the frankincense tells us how we can have eyes to find the gold. Christmas celebrates the entry of God into the world in a way that allows us to see Him, to know Him, and to allow His love to fill us and strengthen us. The decorations, the music, the celebrating all point out his grate gift of love for us. When we take the time to ground ourselves in the love of God, our eyes are open to see the gold surrounding us each day.

Yes, the pain can be there. He was given the myrrh as a birth gift. A life fully lived will hold some pain. But it holds much more gold. Celebrate his birth. Look for the gold. Seek it every day. It hides in so many nooks and crannies of our lives. You will only see it if you seek it out.

Gold, frankincense and myrrh. Let these gifts of the kings remind us all that in the midst of any pain, God is always with us and points us to the gold.
