What Women Want part 6…

What women want in a guy

 

  • Men that are really listening.

See the last post.

This listening thing isn’t about just hearing.

It isn’t just about acknowledging. It’s about listening with understanding, acknowledgement, compassion and sympathy.

Men have got to listen, really listen and care when you listen.

What Women want part 5…

What women want in a guy

 

  • A man that doesn’t try to fix it.

 

This is a problem for us guys.

We want a job to do and we want to fix things.

We were raised that way and it comes pretty natural to most of us.

We want to fix it and move on.

But that isn’t what most women want when they share a problem or frustration.

They want a man to listen intently and to just listens, period.

It is all about the listening.

What Women want part 4…

What women want in a guy

 

  • Men that don’t hide their flaws and are trying to change.

 

Men in the man world are all about showing a good face.

We strut our stuff and never admit we are weak.

Men don’t be “all that” with a lady, your lady.

She’s flawed, your flawed and we all are flawed. Admit your mistakes and faults and especially show that you are willing to change and get better.

We are all works in progress. Men admit it and show the progress.

What Women want part 3…

What women want in a guy

 

  • Dress to impress.

 

Sweat pants and a football jersey really don’t do it for her.

Dress to impress your lady.

Shave, clean up, put on some smelly stuff.

Not just for special times but all the time.

Mouth wash helps too.

What Women want part 2…

 

What women want in a guy

Chivalry

Open the door for her.

Pull out the chair for her at the restaurant.

Do what a knight in shining wold do for his wife. Give her honor, respect and love.

Be her hero and kill the dragon for her.

Yes, It’s Valentine’s Day again soon…

 

Valentine’s Day February 14th.

I got into an online battle over Valentine’s day a few years ago with a guy who felt he was being forced by society, the world, commercialism etc. to give his wife something on February 14th.

He didn’t want to be forced to show his love for his wife and didn’t want to be pushed into a corner.

My argument with him was you can be pushed in the same way for Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries too.

You have to go with the flow.

Even if your spouse says they don’t want anything for the day. Understand this, underneath it all they really do care. Valentine’s is a test for every one. Yes, we all know it is a bit forced. But we also know that there is a certain expectation that has to be met.

What other day is set aside as a national day for expressing love for another?

What is wrong with that, especially in the negative world we live in?

It is never about the “what” you get your loved one. But it is always the “thought” behind it.

Valentine’s Day is more than chocolates and flowers. It has always been more than the things you give.

Valentine’s day is about sharing a special love with a special person.

St. Valentine the guy who the day is named for, was martyred for his faith, his beliefs and his love. He sacrificed his life for what he believed in. The hearts and flowers came a long time after his death.

So maybe we all feel pushed and shoved by the commercial nature of the day.

But we all can make a little sacrifice of our time and energy to show the one we love that we do love them.

Enjoy Valentine’s Day for the real reason it is celebrated for love, for life for your loved ones.

Be a Gift.

Be a gift.

Most of the time we want to be on the getting side of things.

We want and we think we need.

Change that.

Become a gift in peoples lives.

Bring joy, compassion, kindness and love to the lives of those around you.

We are living in a real negative world right now and people need some good news.

Be the gift, be the good news in people’s lives.

Wrap yourself up in a nice package and surprise people that are in desperate need of a gift.

You are and can be a gift to people.

Beat the winter blues 2

Beat the Winter Blues 2

Here are some more suggestions to beat the blahs of winter.

 

  1. Use bright colors-

Stimulate your senses with some bright colors.

The dull gray outside doesn’t have to rule your world inside.

Just simply having some bright colored pillows or throws can go a long way in beating those winter blues.

  1. Diet-

Yuck, diet.

You know that when you feel down you have a tendency to go for the foods that just keep the cycle going.

Heavy calorie foods just make you feel lousy.

Fruits, veggies and salads are a good choice to overcome the winter blahs.

  1. Spend some together time-

Getting together with friends and loved ones can help get you out of the doldrums.

Meet your friends at a local hangout.

Get your sun, exercise and friendships done all at once.

  1. Give yourself some grace-

There are ups and downs know it and go with it.

It’s fine to feel the blues for a short while.

It is when it becomes chronic that it is a problem.

Laying in bed with a warm drink and good book is OK.

Doing that for a week is not.

 

Winter doesn’t last forever. Unless you are in Game of Thrones and that is a different story.

Be proactive with your moods and get out of your blues.

Beat the winter blues

 

Beat the Winter Blues

Here are some suggestions to beat the blahs of winter.

  1. Natural sun light-

It is recommended that you get at least 20 minutes sunlight a day.

Even if it cold outside get out there and get the sun your body and mind need.

Combine this with number 3 and get a two for one benefit.

Ok, so it’s dark all the time.

Purchase a sun lamp or put daylight bulbs in your lights to simulate daylight.

  1. Sleep as a priority-

Go to bed at a regularly scheduled time every day and get up at a set time.

It’s dark early but don’t let that throw you off.

Don’t expect to catch up on sleep on weekends. It just doesn’t work.

  1. Move-

Exercise a little every day.

Do at least 15 minutes of some kind of physical activity.

Be proactive in getting your body moving.
