Best Of Me It is the beginning of a new month, April, but it is also the end of a journey we have taken along the path of intimate relationships. Over the last several weeks, we have been looking at how to be and give of the best of ourselves in our relationships. The conversations never ends, however, as we must – and I deliberately use that word – always try to be and give the best of who and what we are and continue to become. Monday through Friday
Starting With Your Passion It was love at first sight! My eyes were glued, my heart skipped several beats as my fingers explored the seeming wonders. “You’re just too good to be true, can’t take my eyes off of you… .” And for sure I did not for the 25+ years since. It has been my longest, dearest, most enriching and fulfilling relationship. Every update, upgrade and new possibilities we have explored together. Funny enough, I have never given my long-term mate a name. Strange? Yet, our relationship has and
Direction And Stability “The way I am running is not aimlessly; the way I am aiming my blows is so as not to be striking the air.” Setting relationship goals shows direction and stability.

Because I Stay Since the beginning of March, we have turned our attention to intimate relationships. We examined various aspects of how you are in relationships, what could help improve your intimate relationships and asking yourself whether you are in fact in a spiritual partnership. Reviewing all these posts to come to a conclusion as we approach the end of the month, I wondered whether anyone thought we might have suggested you behave as if you are stupid? That is putting it bluntly. That is the furthest thing from our
Every One Before we even arrived in Edmonton and unpacked our bags, my heartbeat was already attuned to the culture of the Aboriginal people of this country. I soon began my search for more information about their spirituality, leafing through the tourist brochures that my partner brought home. While the primary purpose for these was for planning trips to places of interest that we could get to by bus, I looked for places where I could experience Aboriginal spirituality. The pressures of finding employment and keeping on top of the
To Your Advantage Vulnerable in love. Good, bad, somewhere between? “The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility,” says Paulo Coelho. Are you ‘exposed’ in your intimacy? How does that make you feel whether you are or are not? Is it really exposure, weakness or you are feeling vulnerable? That was the conversation this week – How to be strong in your vulnerability. Leaning heavily on the work of Brené Brown, we began Weekday Wisdom© with the following affirmation: “I love my partner and I am vulnerable.
In Pakistan Today I am touching on a subject that is taboo in my society. It may be somewhat strange for many since it is very different from what western women are accustomed to. Physical intimacy between Pakistani couples especially on the woman’s part. Before I go any further, you need to have a little understanding about how an average Pakistani woman is raised when it comes intimacy. The concept of physical intimacy is one that is entirely untouched not just for young women but also for men in our
The “V” Word Have you ever noticed that until you buy say a particular type of car, you were almost completely unaware of the number of them already on the road? All of a sudden, every other car on the highway is a M-series BMW (yes, that was my dream car). Well the same thing was happening to me with a particular word just over a decade ago. I was in conversation with someone and she mentioned her fears around intimacy. We discussed this and her concern had to do
