  • Choose Her Every Day

    Posted on October 24, 2015 by Wendy

    A friend of mine shared this today on Facebook and I wanted to share it with you all.
    Whether you are in a relationship or not it is a MUST read. It's so insightful and true.

    This was written by Bryan Reeves however the link to his site is not working unfortunately
    but I wanted to make sure I gave credit to him.

    Choose Her Every Day (Or Leave Her)

    I spent 5 years hurting a good woman by staying with her but never fully choosing her.

    I did want to be with this one. I really wanted to choose her.
    She was an exquisite woman, brilliant and funny and sexy and sensual.
    She could make my whole body laugh with her quick, dark wit and short-circuit my brain with her exotic beauty.
    Waking up every morning with her snuggled in my arms was my happy place. I loved her wildly.

    Unfortunately, as happens with many young couples, our ignorance of how to do love well quickly
    created stressful challenges in our relationship. Before long, once my early morning blissful
    reverie gave way to the strained, immature ways of our everyday life together,
    I would often wonder if there was another woman out there who was easier to love, and who could love me better.

    As the months passed and that thought reverberated more and more through my head,
    I chose her less and less. Every day, for five years, I chose her a little less.

    I stayed with her. I just stopped choosing her. We both suffered.

    Choosing her would have meant focusing every day on the gifts she was bringing into my life that
    I could be grateful for: her laughter, beauty, sensuality, playfulness, companionship, and so … much … more.

    Sadly, I often found it nearly impossible to embrace – or even see – what was so wildly wonderful about her.

    I was too focused on the anger, insecurities, demands, and other aspects of her strong personality
    that grated on me. The more I focused on her worst, the more I saw of it, and the more I mirrored
    it back to her by offering my own worst behavior. Naturally, this only magnified the strain
    on our relationship … which still made me choose her even less.

    Thus did our nasty death spiral play itself out over five years.

    She fought hard to make me choose her. That’s a fool’s task. You can’t make someone choose you,
    even when they might love you.
    To be fair, she didn’t fully choose me, either. The rage-fueled invective she often hurled at me
    was evidence enough of that.
    I realize now, however, that she was often angry because she didn’t feel safe with me.
    She felt me not choosing her every day, in my words and my actions, and she was afraid I would abandon her.

    Actually, I did abandon her.

    By not fully choosing her every day for five years, by focusing on what bothered me rather than
    what I adored about her, I deserted her.

    Like a precious fragrant flower I brought proudly into my home but then failed to water,
    I left her alone in countless ways to wither in the dry hot heat of our intimate relationship.

    I’ll never not choose another woman I love again.

    It’s torture for everyone.

    If you’re in relationship, I invite you to ask yourself this question:
    “Why am I choosing my partner today?”

    If you can’t find a satisfying answer, dig deeper and find one. It could be as simple as noticing
    that in your deepest heart’s truth, “I just do.”

    If you can’t find it today, ask yourself again tomorrow. We all have disconnected days.

    But if too many days go by and you just can’t connect with why you’re choosing your partner,
    and your relationship is rife with stress, let them go.
    Create the opening for another human being to show up and see them with fresh eyes
    and a yearning heart that will enthusiastically choose them every day.

    Your loved one deserves to be enthusiastically chosen. Every day.
    You do, too.

    Choose wisely.

  • Roasted Vegetables Recipe

    Posted on October 17, 2015 by Wendy

    Waking up this morning with the first frost on the ground made me think about what hearty soups
    I can make full of delicious root vegetables.

    I went searching and found this recipe from House and Garden in the UK so wanted to share it with you.

    You can vary the vegetables according to what's in season and what you have to hand. Vegetables like cauliflower or sprouts also roast well. Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice with a mild, almost lemony flavour.
    It's available at most large supermarkets in the spice section.



    And Remember to Always Be Fabulous!

    Luv Wendy

  • What do Women Really Want?

    Posted on June 27, 2015 by Wendy

    What do Women Really Want?

    I love this! You have to read it to the end, to hear the wonderful conclusion. I won't spoil it for you.

    Please comment and pass it on. Definitely worth sharing. Thank you Ursula for your insight :) <3


    Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighbouring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

    The question?...What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

    He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

    Many people advised him to consult the old ugly woman, for only she would have the answer.

    But the price would be high; as the woman was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

    The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the old woman. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.

    The old ugly woman wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend!

    Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.

    He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.

    He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table.

    Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the woman answered Arthur's question thus:

    What a woman really wants, she answered....is to be in charge of her own life.

    Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the woman had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared.

    And so it was, the neighbouring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the ugly woman had a wonderful wedding.

    The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.

    The young beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared ugly, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.

    Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night?

    Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old ugly woman? Or, would he prefer having a hideous woman during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?

    What would YOU do?

    What Lancelot chose is below.

    BUT....make YOUR choice before you scroll down below.


    Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

    Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

    Now....what is the moral to this story?

    The moral is.....

    If you don't let a woman have her own way....

    Things are going to get ugly..

    Hope you got a cute chuckle.

    Remember to always Be Fabulous!!!

    Luv Wendy
