New accountability group. Want to join?

Raise your hand if you want to be accountable with me!

As I was doing my daily walk today, I was thinking about you. Yes, I’m always thinking about my readers, my clients, and potential clients.

I was thinking about how difficult it is to make the changes that you (and I) say you want. I know for a fact that most diets DO work. What doesn’t work for too many people is keeping the motivation going to meet your weight loss goals. Read the rest of this entry »

Negative Beliefs and Dating: Talk Back to These Beliefs

“For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Hamlet

If you think dating is easy and fun, you are right. If you think dating is hard and painstaking, you are right. How can this be? What do these two contradictory sentences have in common? Two things: you and your thoughts. You are the creator Read the rest of this entry »

Is Hope Keeping You Stuck in Bad Dating Patterns?

I have worked with too many singles who are so eager to be in a relationship that they do not take the time to understand what it takes to make a relationship last. Even worse, it pains me to hear my own friends say, “I just want to be in the middle of the relationship; I don’t want to wait.” Then they proceed to tell me, often with a sad expression, how they have met a man and have already begun a Read the rest of this entry »

Seek to Understand Yourself First as a Single Person

When I was in my late 20′s, freshly out of a divorce from a good husband I left out of ignorance and immaturity, I was determined that I was going to find a new relationship with a great man. I thought I knew it all (you thought teenagers knew it all, but I carried that arrogance into my 20′s) and having recently graduated with my Masters in Counseling Psychology, I was convinced I needed to seek a Read the rest of this entry »

Need to be independent

I’m going to step out  on a limb here and say that independence is over-rated. It’s great to be self-sufficient, but if you are going to create a loving relationship, inter-dependence seems to fit better as far as I can tell.

I know you are a strong woman and you can do anything a man can do. The beauty for me, being in a relationship, is that I don’t have to do all those things myself. I can let myself be helped when there are things that are hard for me to do. I don’t have to be strong all the time.

I would love your thoughts in the box below. And I’d love to invite you to my free weekly webinar, Ask Michelle Anything. Sign up here.

Love me just as I am

Yes, it is so important to be accepted for who you are. My question to you is this: are you holding onto some bad habits that are not really “who you are” but are defenses you developed in childhood that may no longer serve you?

Another question to ask yourself is this: am I willing to accept someone else’s bad behavior? If not, then it is time for some self-examination. When dating, you work on becoming your best “you” so that you can attract the best possible partner.

You don’t have to give up your best self to be accepted, but you may need to modify or get rid of some habits that keep you from finding and keeping the one for you.

Join my monthly webinar on the 14 dating traps to learn more. I’ll send you a remind for when the next one is coming up!
