Far too often, a man’s need for sex is not met. By this I mean, most married men, or men who are dating will willingly tell you, they’re not getting enough sex. Either their wife or girlfriend is too tired, has her period or simply doesn’t need sex as often as we males do. For the average man, sex is more of a physiological and basic need than a pure drive for sex.
Do you ever feel like you are adding to your to-do list faster than you’re crossing things off and then end up with very little time to yourself? Ever feel like your career actually fulfills you, but that you’re still missing out on so much? Or better, are you frustrated with your job, and still feel somewhat absent in your kids’ life? Welcome working moms. Welcome guilty moms. Welcome multi-tasking moms. Welcome frazzled moms. Today’s Blog post is for you.
We all sat down, starved. All of a sudden, completely out of the blue, my 6 year old son began to panic. He complained that it was very loud, and he began to cry uncontrollably. He then said he wanted to throw up, so I immediately ran him to the bathroom. He didn’t throw up, but was complaining he HAD to go home. Not even the burger and fries on the table (which he usually LOVES) could calm him down or get him to eat. We took him outside, and the minute he got outside, he started to relax. He was back to normal. It was near 7Pm at this point, and I knew he was hungry, so I tried to bring him back inside. The minute he came back in, he started to almost shake again, cry, and was literally eating his burger with tears streaming down his eyes, with his coat on. He just wanted to go home. So, after he ate a little, we did just that. We darted home. Besides one time a year ago at a hockey game, where he did something similar, this has NEVER happened in 6 1/2 years.
Spring is definitely coming. Everyone was up early in our house this morning, because of the brighter early am’s. The bad thing… less sleep. The good thing… me not ranting like a fish-wife for everyone to get out of bed so as not to be late for school. Me and rushing don’t do well together. At all. Last week, I blogged about Spring Cleaning your house and your life. Today I want to talk about spring cleaning your body. I think we often take our bodies for granted. Sometimes our bodies can take the abuse, but sometimes, as in the case of Corey Haim, (who grew up here in Montreal), our bodies just cannot. So what can you do to be good to your body, so that it will be good to you.

If there is anything I am on the fence about, it’s the topic of nurturing… too much vs. too little. Encouraging our kids vs. being tough on them when needed. Aah, the joys of parenting and all the confusion that comes with it! Providing for your children’s physical needs, like food, clothing and shelter, is pretty straightforward. However, providing for your children’s emotional needs is an entirely different beast. Every child is different, and you probably see it in your own house, that your nurturing style differs with each child based on their character.
Happy International Women’s Day! Today we celebrate ALL women, ALL over the globe. Here’s to you, ladies!

Brooke will also be one of the few incredibly dynamic people giving me Words Of Praise for my upcoming book, 99 Things Women Wish They Knew Before Starting Their Own Business.
Much to my astonishment, inspiration in fact surrounds our lives in places we don’t look hard enough to notice. There is, if you look closely enough, something to be inspired about every day. And as I see it, it’s inspiration to aspiration. I’m inspired to aspire to something richer, better perhaps even more righteous. I can truly say that I appreciate the sometimes not so obvious little nuggets of inspiration that appear in my daily life. When I stop and appreciate them, my glass is half full, my routine less numb and I am truly inspired.
But seriously, spring is a chance to clean up your house, literally and figuratively! There’s more to house cleaning than just cleaning out your basement and cedar closet! You should be approaching your spring cleaning as an emotional cleanse, just as much as the physical cleaning. What dust-balls are lurking in the corner in your life?? Gotta clean up, ladies!
I love Tina Turner and everything she stands for – confidence, tenacity, resilience, woman of action. If I asked you who you consider to be a woman of action, what would you answer?
Gloria Steinem? Oprah Winfrey? Hillary Clinton? Eunice Kennedy Shriver?
