One Minute Tip:
When couples first get together, everything is new and exciting. They overlook the little annoying things the other person does.
However, after time, the nagging starts, instead of hearing, You look beautiful, they might hear Why are you wearing that shirt? If this sounds like your relationship, first, the two of you need to sit down and be honest that things have changed.
Identify the things each other did in the beginning of the relationship that created the attraction in the first place. Then together, make a commitment to start over. The truth is, both of you will have to work on this. It will not automatically be easy but it is possible. Start by forgiving each other, forgetting the past, and then start over with the flirtation.
Focus only on the special things your mate does and relearn to put the unimportant things aside. It will take some time so be patient.
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.
On this team, we’re all united in a common goal: to keep my job.

How to Boost Your Creativity: Even If youre Not In the Creative Field!
Kate is currently managing the family business. Everything’s going well except that she feels that something is lacking. She feels that the creative side of her is slowly dying. Before she got married, she worked at an advertising agency. She described this experience as one of the happiest in her life.
After marriage, however, she decided to help her husband in managing the business. Although she doesn’t regret her choice, she wants to develop her creativity and do something apart from handling the business. Sounds familiar right? Almost all of us, at some point in our lives, experienced this dilemma. Some of us are experiencing this right now.
We certainly need creative outlets. The opportunities for creative expression are numerous; we only have to keep our minds and options open. Perhaps there is an opportunity right in your family business to express your creativity. Perhaps we need to promote or market our products and services.
If this is the case, we can awaken our creative side by coming up with brochures and pamphlets or even an information packet for businesses. If we look hard enough, we will find that everything, even the most unrelated things, can inspire us to be creative.
If we have extra time, we can volunteer our services to family and friends for a small fee. This will allow us to flex our creative muscles with a lot less pressure than doing it full-time. Better yet, we can just do it for free!
Look for creative opportunities at home, too. Perhaps the house needs to be redecorated or there is a need for creative solution to storage problems. It is fun to do home-improvement projects, especially on a tight budget. Now, that really gets our creative juices flowing!
Perhaps the family photos need organizing. Maybe the garden needs to be designed. An upcoming special family event could use our creative touch. Why not design a backdrop for that big family reunion or put together a snazzy PowerPoint presentation for a wedding anniversary? How about decorating the venue for birthday party?
Explore other creative activities, as well, including some we have never tried before. For example, we can try doing a scrapbook, try our hand in baking, sewing, doing children’s arts and crafts, etc. If you are into visual arts and writing, then the possibilities for creative milking are endless.
Try these other ideas to get our creative juices pumping:
– Enroll in creative writing courses: check local community colleges or the classifieds for workshops in your area
– Practice writing a Journal: just get a notebook and a pen and let our thoughts flow
– Write poems: instead of writing free prose on your journal, try experimenting with rhymes and metaphors
– Draw, paint, or do graphic arts: create something for kids, members of the family, or just for ourselves to look at and say “I did that!”
– Try photography: a picture paints a thousand words; as they say, life is poetry in action. Capture it.
– Try jewelry making, pottery, theater arts, singing, and just about everything else that will keep us entertained!
Creativity is a state of mind. One does not have to be in a creative field to be creative. We can be creative as soon as we open our eyes in the morning. Let us put our stamp of individuality in every aspect of our lives. Above all, make our lives be our masterpiece. Enjoy it!

3 Ways To Keep Your Vision Sharp
In a world where people are concerned with major health scares like diabetes, cardiac problems, anemia, and the like, it’s all easy for us to forget the simple but important things. Keeping your senses fully functional makes a great difference in your life. Losing even one sense can have a tremendous impact on your latter years if you ignore it in lieu of the “bigger” health threats.
In line with this, you can do three things that can help you keep your eyesight sharp. These three tips are simple enough to follow and will help you keep your vision from deteriorating. These tips will help improve your current visual acuity as well.
1) Eye Health Maintenance
Next, try to avoid excessive eyestrain. If you like to read books, for example, don’t read while riding a moving vehicle or stare too long at a TV or computer monitor. If you’re a movie buff, couch potato, video game jockey, or work with computers for long periods, remember to rest your eyes every hour or so.
2) Medical Stuff
Secondly, there are medicines that help ease eyestrain. These usually come in the form of eye drops. While most people think that eye drops are simply meant to clean out eyeballs, these drops actually help soothe tired eyes and also act as moisturizers to keep the eyeballs from drying up. Allowing your eyeballs to dry up is actually one of the fastest ways that can lead to the deterioration of vision.
3) Eye Exercises
A second eye exercise is speed-reading. Read a short paragraph written anywhere. Start by reading at your normal pace. Then try to re-read the same passage but pick up the speed at which you go, until you can literally skim over the entire paragraph yet still absorb it’s contents. This increases the “reflexes” of your eyes. This also increases the rate at which your eyes send and receive signals from your brain.
There you go, these are three simple to follow. Do these and keep your vision from deteriorating.
Tips for your Prosperity:
How to Make Money without Making Enemies
Anytime is the best time to talk about gaining wealth without making enemies. Occasions, such as Christmas, provide a special reason. The best example is Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.
Even if you havent read the book, you must have seen a version of a TV movie or cartoon about the story of a stingy businessman named Ebenezer Scrooge. On Christmas Eve, he was visited by four ghosts. Afterwards, he became more generous and charitable.
When one strikes the gold and gets rich, chances are he develops enemies around him. It could be the manner in which he obtained the wealth or it could be simply because these people are jealous of his good fortune.
So we ask whether it is possible to gain wealth without gaining enemies. The answer to this question is yes.
We all want to have more money. However, heres the dilemma: when we get the money, we are prone to have more power. Thats true.
Too much power can result to enemies. If you do not want enemies, but you want money, below are some of the things that you can do.
It may be difficult but it is all about self-control. By keeping your morals intact, you know how to handle the situation better and in a civil manner. In the world of business, there is a tendency for people to engage in cutthroat competition. If you subscribe to this way of thinking, you ease up on seizing an opportunity that will let you step on others in order to reach your goal.
You should be also confident in the skill that you have.
Do not engage in BS or crap.
If you find yourself ahead than most people, keep your feet on the ground. Do not act all arrogant and exude the aura that you are better than others. You will surely have enemies around if you do so.
Seize every opportunity.
Everybody wants to make money and gain the secrets of the wealthy. They want to be their own boss and live their own lives and become financially stable. There are also people who want to achieve wealth without compromising their relationships with people around them.
It is possible. Just follow the golden rule: do not do unto others what you dont want others do unto you. Always put yourself in the position of the other person, without degrading or incriminating your own benefit. Think of how you can gain from the situation, but also be mindful of those around you.
