Have the holidays got you down? Do you wonder what you'll be doing? Or who you'll be with?
The holidays can be hard for everyone. But, they're especially hard if you're single or recently divorced. But, you can find ways to take lemons and make lemonade (or as Oprah says -- lemon pound cake!)
Because the holidays are ripe with opportunities to meet someone. And that’s what I’d love to share with you at my next live Video Chat, How to Date During the Holidays. Check out my video to learn more:
We find people attractive for all kinds of reasons. But, most of the time, chemistry is based on stuff we're not even aware of. We're most attracted to what we know. Or rather who we know.

Loneliness gets to some more than others. But why it hangs on isn’t always apparent when read by traditional medical eyes.
Accepting relationships as they come to us is one of life’s greater growth opportunities. I’m not just referring to relationships with partners, but also parents, friends, co-workers and pets. In accepting others as they are, we let go of our structured thoughts, parental criticism and brainwashing. This also leads to increased self-acceptance. It inevitably returns to self-love, self-acceptance, forgiveness and gratitude.
Once you start loving and embracing yourself, you will find it much easier to love and embrace everyone else.To create loving relationships, we need to start by evaluating our relationship with ourselves. How are we loving and honoring ourselves? Are we constantly judging and putting ourselves down? Are we so hard on ourselves, that in our eyes, we can’t do anything right? If this is so, there is a big possibility this is also how we are treating others around us.
