I am editing my site.
The obstacles we all face are how to keep the energy going at whatever our goals are: be it marriage, health, finance, or our careers. I for one just ordered the book, The Love Dare, to see what it might do to rekindle things with my wife. You can also attend seminars, join a small group for married couples, or create a meetup.com group in which you read relationship books etc.
Of all the things that you find in arguments, money has to be the number 1 or 2 thing for most couples. Last year I was fortunate enough to experience one of the best things that anyone has ever done for me. This was to get me into Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University Class. The [...]
Statistically it matters less if the guy stays in shape than if the wife does. Women who are thinner and more attractive than their husbands stay married longer but when I saw a picture of my face when I am laying down last night complete with my double chin and sun damage it felt like [...]
My wife and I just watched the movie, Silver Linings with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. It really captured me emotionally because I have also felt intense feelings of needing that special person in my life. It also was very much a silver lining to me because as I just turned 39 and have [...]
My wife had a good point one day when we were driving around town and I noted my dislike for companies that buy expensive bright frontage signs only to neglect them and leave them flickering. These flickering signs are just an eyesore to me and the companies operate as if they don’t realize the effect they have.

As I am turning 39 years old I am really feeling it. I went on the meetup.com website to try and find more ways to get connected with social groups in which I will grow and learn. One of the groups is called Dallas Young Professionals and they have a few questions you have to [...]
I just have to say that I am usually not interested in the trite relationships from reality shows. The only reason that this season looked interesting to me was that this guy seems to actually have some integrity. Last night I watched the season finale and it really hit home for me on several levels.
As of now, I am an independent voter. I am not sure that I’m registered independent, but I know that that is how I would vote right now. This is because there are things that I like and do not like in both parties. In fact I sort of agree with David Boren from Oklahoma [...]
I found this cool Podcast on the Dallas NPR station, KERA and it has some good and telling statements regarding our will power and healthy habits. It is by Jeremy Dean, the author of a book called, “Making Habits, Breaking Habits: Why We Do Things, Why We Don’t, And How To Make Any Change Stick.“. [...]
