Right Hand Bling Rings – The Ultimate New Accessor

Right Hand Bling Rings – The Ultimate New Accessory For The Savvy Single Woman

by: Alex Miller

When my first marriage faded into oblivion, the engagement ring I’d worn with such joy and love was banished to my jewelry case.
Some years later, older and much wiser, I resurrected the ring and had it re-set by a jeweler friend to reflect my newly discovered independence and style. But back in those days, the sight of those diamonds on my right hand was simply a painful reminder of my failure in the marriage stakes.
Now it seems I was ahead of my time.
The right-hand bling ring is the latest status symbol for women who no longer feel they have anything to prove.
Women are earning more, marrying later and have more disposable income than ever before, leaving them with plenty of room for a little...

Co-Dependency and Food: Trying to Fill the Void

Co-Dependency and Food: Trying to Fill the Void

by: Zo Houseman

Nice girls don’t speak up. Nice girls take care of and support others. These are just a few of the messages girls often receive as they are socialized. Often in adulthood, these ingrained messages turn into full-blown co-dependency. Years can go by. Unmet needs build up energy; they demand attention. But without learning skills in setting boundaries, letting others feel their own pain and making oneself a priority, food often becomes the hassle-free, soothing balm to take the edge off and release that pent up energy momentarily, that is until the guilt sets in.
We are in one of the following roles when we are co-dependent – victim, rescuer or persecutor...

Is This The One?

Is This The One?

by: Skye Thomas

Isn’t that the million dollar question? How can I tell if this is the one? Is this one my soulmate? How will I know when I find the right one? There is no magic answer, but I can tell you what seems to work. I asked a psychic one time if a certain person was my soulmate. His answer, “If you have to ask, then he’s not the one.” He went on to explain that with soulmates no matter how good or bad a day you have together, you wake up in the morning knowing without a doubt that this is the one and you go to bed at night knowing without a doubt that this is the one. Nothing that happens in between those two points can change your mind.
Whenever I find happily married couples in their fifties or older who have been married for most of their lives to each o...

7 Successful Stress Management Techniques

by: Lyndsay Swinton

Everyone needs successful stress management techniques. Easy to learn and easy to implement, you can use them for your own stress management or teach them to help others manage theirs.
Manage your stress and be a healthier, happier and more pleasant person to be around. Let’s cut to the chase…

Are Women Really Superior to Men?

Are Women Really Superior to Men?

by: Salma N. Ajani

While doing my search for this idea, I came across something interesting on the web. At a hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where a family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and serious.
Surveying the worried faces, the doctor said, “I’m afraid I’m the bearer of bad news. The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant. It’s an experimental procedure, very risky, you will have to pay for the brain yourselves.”
The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great length of time, someone asked, “Well, how much does a brain cost?”
The doctor quickly responded, “$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a female brain.”
The moment turned awkward...

ThinkExist.com revisits Carson McCullers

by: Mark A. Lugris

MADRID – Sixty-four years after it was originally published, Carson McCullers’ first novel “The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter” is still a literary phenomenon.
Holding the twenty-second position on The New York Times best-selling paperback’s list, thanks in part to being included in Oprah’s book club, but mostly due to its survival as a timeless tale of isolation and compassion.
Born in Georgia in 1917, Lula Carson Smith was a child piano prodigy, yet as a high school student, she suffered from rheumatic fever, which lead to crippling strokes throughout her life. Before graduating from Columbus High School, Carson decided to abandon the piano and become a writer...

Passion’s Search for Destiny

Passion’s Search for Destiny

by: Skye Thomas

She was haunted by a man whom she had never met. He came to her in her dreams. It was not just a reoccurring dream about some random Prince Charming archetype. This guy had flaws, he was just as mixed up and lost as she was. She would wake up from a dead sleep to the sound of his voice whispering in her ear, “Look out the window.” She would argue in her half asleep stupor, “Be quiet! I’m sleeping!” Again, he would whisper, “Look out the window.” She would eventually drag herself up from the cozy comfort of her bed to gaze out the window. There was the full moon big and beautiful. It magically called to her from somewhere in the back of her soul’s oldest memories.
She could feel him there, her ghostly suitor...
