Our therapist, Sarah Murray, is now a columnist with Psychology Today as a sex expert.  Her first article was published recently: Sarah focused her doctoral dissertation on men’s experience of sexuality, looking at the connection between sex and belonging/connection/relationship.

I read Donald Miller’s Scary Close book late last fall…and it was one of the best books I’d read in a long time.  It was funny and clever and engaging, and all about relationships, my favourite topic. Y’know it’s a good book, when months after it’s been read, it comes back to bite you in …

Watching and listening and gazing into the eyes of the women in this video chokes me…it narrows my throat, and tears well up…I feel a knot when I swallow.  Somehow this video says something deep and profound and wonderful and beautiful… Don’t a lot of us try hard to be who we think others want …

Ummm…I hear this word “selfie” does everyone but me know what it means? Selfies are a relatively recent development, so let me let Oxford tell you: So…why would anybody take a selfie?  Why take pics of yourself to post on social media? What’s the point?

I love this video that has popped up in a few places: It’s like these women are almost surprised at how disappointed they are at how they don’t/want/can’t own the beauty of the faces in these photos..the retouched, bleached, refined, blemish-removed, pore-airbrushed faces…just not seeing that perfected “beauty” in the image, and owning it as …

Terrified courage

Folks that run into a burning building to rescue a child are regarded as brave heroes.  And we often think of brave heroes as folks who fearlessly do very dangerous things. I’m thinking that anybody that enters a burning building without fear isn’t brave…I would think that’s more like a special kind of stupid. That’s …

I was surfing today and came across two pieces of info back to back.  The first was this*…beautiful portraiture capturing beauty, not as the modelling world might see it, but as it truly is…the expression of joy, exuberance, loveliness, and “the sparkle” in a person’s eye as they laugh.:     The second was this, …

Brené Brown was on the brand new Katie show last week…she was great in encouraging folks to dare greatly to be authentically themselves. Jenny Lawson, blogger and author…and sufferer of anxiety…opened the door to a candid look at her anxiety through her writing.  That took courage.  She didn’t want to create a “false history” that …
