Hi there!

 

“…… Last week Bo and I decided to stay in and
enjoy the evening together.
After having a very pleasant dinner we thought
it would be a great idea to sit closely and enjoy
a good entertaining comedy.

We have always liked the delightful Naked Gun
films, so
we decided to put on the Naked Gun 2 1/2 :
The
Smell of Fear this time, because we knew we
would find it extremely entertaining.

It really was such an enjoyable and amusing
evening;   we kept on laughing for the whole
one and a half hours it was playing.

Watching this fantastic comedy on the television
sitting together on the sofa, it was the best choice
we had made.
It really was such a great way to feel closer to
each other and relieve all stresses of the day……”

” If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane ”
Robert Frost     1874  –  1963

muscles.

Laughter is inherited, ingrained and instinctive.
Even if you are not used to laughing or even

any where.

with others.

When you learn to laugh your life will be much
more enjoyable and pleasant.
You will be feeling renewed within yourself and
also with your relationships.

You will then find that lots of new opportunities
will start occurring to you.
You will be feeling much more relaxed, positive
and really happy with yourself and your life.

Do not wait any longer.
Start laughing now to collect all the health benefits.

The human race has only one really effective
weapon and that is laughter “

Hi there!

 

…… Beauty is to have a good feeling and be
pleased about yourself, and I firmly believe that
laughter is the greatest weapon against ageing .

…… ” As I grow older I become more confident,
I am happier and more sexy;   definitely I feel
much better now than I did when I was younger,
and all these are very comforting .

…… ” There is something very sensual about
having all these imperfections that come
with age;   I love my body and I really feel
happy and fearless .

…… ” I now know who I am and what I want;
I decide what is important for me and I don’t
care what other people think of me;   these
make me appreciate my maturity .

Amour Propre

 

Most women start feeling as if they are
losing control and being in the background
as soon as they enter their fifth decade.
They start worrying that they have now
lost their youthful and attractive appearance.

 Of course this is happening because they
have always believed deeply that their value
as women is only in their youth and external
image.

But the truth is that physical attractiveness
and youthfulness are only temporary and
short-lived.
Consequently, if you define your worth and
importance by these two terms you will never
have any self-esteem and respect.

All you need to help you go through the
transition as the years go is flexibility.
You need to accept your new self-image
as it is developing, and say your final goodbye
to this brainwashed equation of youth
and beauty.

Consider the following recommendations
in order to love your changing body:

a)     Fuel your body with healthy and nutritious
foods, and take supplements.

b)     Exercise your body to keep it strong.

c)     Care for your body, honour it, respect it
and support it, because it is your greatest
tool and your most prized possession.

d)     Concentrate on being healthy physically
and mentally as well as being pleased with
your life at this point.

e)     Adopt an anti-ageing healthful lifestyle,
focus on your passions and how much you
can do from now on.

f)     Be proud and grateful for everything you
have achieved until now, recognising that it
was your body that brought you where you
are today.

g)     Realise that your external appearance is
only a tiny part of who you are and you
deserve to be recognised as the wise and
wonderful person you are.

Might And Main

 

Hating your changing body is a complete
waste of time and energy.
Life is too short to worry about a natural
process you can not stop or alter.

Stop obsessing about the developments
your appearance is undergoing.
True beauty is being you as a human in the
body you own now.

Be glad, satisfied and appreciate the way
you look, accept it and be pleased with it.
Allow your new valuable self to emerge.
Do not hide and work on the new you.

Understand that the Fountain of Youth
is Your Own Mind.

Valentinius!

 

Salve!

 

He was a famous and brilliant lawyer,
and she was waiting outside his elaborate
office to be interviewed for the position
of legal assistant.  She was called in and
offered a sit in his 
private lounge until he
was ready to see her.

Then he stood up and walked towards her…..

Remembering…..

 

Our eyes met, and it was ecstasy..! 
euphoria..!   It’s crazy but I’d never felt like
this before.    It was the most wonderful
feeling I’d ever experienced;   I felt I’d
known her all my life;   it’s unbelievable..!
unimaginable..!

I was so impressed by her stunning appearance.
We stared at each other’s eyes while introducing
ourselves feeling love instantly;   we were so
completely besotted and captivated with
each other.

I was absolutely dying to discover everything
about this fantastic woman.   We met a
number of times, then I realised this
sensational female symbolized all I’d
ever wished for.

I was thrilled, intoxicated and totally
excited.   Bizarre and incredible that
everything was coming so easy for us;
we seemed to think, like and want all
the same things in our life…..! .

A month later they moved-in together,
and four months later they got married.
They needed and were perfect for
each other.   Until today their great
and outstanding love is strong and
surviving the very hard and exhausting
test of time.

Flip Over

 

We grow and evolve as individuals
constantly, and with time passing
it becomes more and more difficult
to keep the bond strong with the most
important other person in our life;
especially if we have been in the
relationship for many years.

You have to work hard;   you have
to be willing to make the effort.
Everybody wants to have a solid,
secure and healthy relationship,
but the majority of people do not
know how.

During difficult, worrying and
problematic times couples start
working against each other.
They get upset and start arguing
and fighting between them even
about unimportant issues.

They neglect each other, become
ironic and demanding,
and begin
insulting the other
partner to his/her
face and behind
their backs.

The situation gets out of hand and
finally they turn to other people to
find relief, feel better, comfort
themselves and most often to
revenge their partner.

Tactics like these never end up well
and lead to permanent distance
between the partners, and unrepairable
damage at the end.

Last Word

 

If you want to have a great relationship
and your love to be alive forever,
total communication is the key.

We communicate not by just talking
to each other, but by listening to
the other person, by being open
and honest, by focusing on the subject
of discussion and by paying attention
to the body language.

Never ever take your partner for
granted;   and always be affectionate,
caring and understanding.

A powerful and secure relationship
is the one which the partners show
respect and kindness towards
each other.

Form a strong bond and bring
closeness, authenticity, trust, faith,
truthfulness and support to your
relationship.

Act immediately before it is too late!
