grade fI have a very tough time being criticized, corrected, or accused - of even the smallest mistakes - and I react very angrily. I've wrestled this instinct under control in a professional context, more or less, but I have more trouble with it at home. All it takes is for my daughter to make a mild comment such as, "You forgot to remind me to bring my library book," to set me off. "What do you mean…it's not my responsibility…I didn't know Wednesday was Library Day…" etc., etc.
More and more, I see the connection between perfectionism, control, and anger. Zoikes, how I struggle to keep my sense of humor and light-heartedness! Here are some of the strategies that I try to use to accept criticism. If I manage to use them, they never fail me, but I don't always manage to put them to work.
1. Listen to what a critic is saying. Really listen, try to understand that point of view, don't just nod while I formulate my retorts. Accept just criticism.
2. Don't be defensive. This is theRead More »from Tips for Handling Criticism

I feel the touch of your hand
As you fingers melt to mine
The warm embrace of your arms
Sent chills down my spine
Your gentle kiss upon my ear
Your breath upon my face
nails that travel down my back
To a soft and loving place
Together we lay as lovers do
Your chest pressed upon mine
I take my hands and try to trace
Over your bodies every line
In the throws of sweat and passion
This moment of heavenly bliss
You press your lips against my cheek
With a single loving kiss
This is the moment I realized
What took a touch to start
Would burn forever in my mind
And always in my heart

I'm completely nail obsessed.
If there is a new color, I've got to have it. If there is a new trend, I must master it. So when the subject line: "The World's Most Expensive Nail Polish" popped up in my email inbox today, I was giddy to click and find out what could possibly make it so pricey.
Would it be liquid gold? Or contain micro-pearls? Turns out Azature, the world's "black diamond king," created a nail polish that contains black diamonds -- 267 carats worth, to be exact, which is what makes this bottle of polish cost a staggering $250,000.
I'm going to go and take a wild guess here, but my gut's saying that not even "the one percent" is going to spend a chunk of their hefty tax refunds on this bottle of black diamond-filled polish.
And it seems like even Azature agrees. They only made one bottle of the stuff. And lucky for us common folk, they made skadsRead More »from A $250,000 Bottle of Nail Polish. For Real

What is your favorite quality about yourself?
Intuition, I have learned to trust my feelings, and it has allowed me to read my daughter's emotions, and that is a gift. I am able to keep her and my relationship on the same path.
What is your least favorite quality about yourself?
Impatience, I get information quickly, like a download, and I like to get things done immediately. Not everyone is on my timetable unfortunately.
What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why?
"Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart." This Indian proverb caught my eye on Facebook, and I resonated with it immediately. I strive to be in my heart center, and not get caught up in all the dramas in the world that have many agendas.
What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life?
That's simple - being a mom!

Crossposted from my blog Near Life Experiences.
When I was a teenager, I used to drive my mom up the wall because I had very little interest in how I looked or what I was wearing. I also had very little interest in makeup or hairstyles or any of a number of things I was apparently supposed to care about. The only time I "cared" about my appearance is when I was being given a hard time because I failed to meet whatever standards my mom had for my appearance.
My own standards for my appearance are pretty simple.
1. If I am at home or in a casual setting: jeans and a t-shirt. T-shirt or pants may have holes in them or be extremely worn. Hair: always out of my face. Make up: None
2. If I am at work or a more formal setting: clothes and hair must be presentable and follow whatever rules are in place for setting. Make up: None.
(The reason why no makeup ever is because a) I had never learned how to apply it. b) I have an intense
