Something To Think About!

This post came up in my Instagram feed today and really spoke to me. It's always a great idea to focus on your own stuff, instead of worrying about others. #foodforthought

When Men Waste Women's Time

Imagine how much healthier our relationships would be if we lived in our truth, each took responsibly for our own actions, and actually had the courage to listen to, and follow our hearts. This is a great article taking men to task, but that doesn't mean us women are off the hook.  We each need to play our part, make sure that our words and actions always match, and that our behavior is acceptable. As stated by the author, "when a guy is misrepresenting his intentions, or hiding his uncertainty about the relationship (and then) he bails out with no warning," that is not okay and totally unacceptable. Check out some other examples that seem to be common practices in relationships today that definitely shouldn't be:

GIRLFRIEND 911 THE BOOK -- Learn How To Tap Into Your Own Power!

My book, Girlfriend 911, is not just a book about how to have a healthy relationship.  Its bigger message is how to tap into your own power, and how to find and keep your self-worth and self-respect -- traits so many women sadly lack these days.  The lessons and themes in Girlfriend 911 resonate with women who have lost their way when it comes to dating and relationships. Here’s an email I  received from a Girlfriend 911 reader that perfectly encapsulates what my book is all about, and why women are forever changed in the best way possible after they read it:

Dear Jacquee,

Thank you for answering my email! I appreciate your input and advice. My boyfriend and I talked, and I am willing to move forward slowly with him as long as he adheres to my standards. If not, he is gone. Thank you for helping me get my dignity back. I was in a bad marriage for a long time and I lost my sense of worth. I now have it back, and whether it works out with this man or I have to move on, I know I will be fine. I refuse to settle ever again. 

All the best,

The Importance of SELF love!

In my book, Girlfriend 911, I talk about how every relationship you're in starts and ends with YOU. YOU have to be okay with yourself, you have to be connected to your Authentic, True self and you have to always be in your power.  How do you do that? Create a set of standards for yourself and boundaries for those around you.

Respect your SELF, love your SELF be okay with YOU. If you are you'll never allow anyone to treat you badly, or take you for granted. Here's a great guide to SELF love by Louise Hay, check it out:

10 Signs You're His One That Got Away!

Why does it take men so long to identify their true feelings for us, when as women we tend to know immediately (sometimes after one date) when we've met our match? Far too often men stuff their feelings down and deny their hearts. I get it, love is a scary thing, but unless you give it an honest chance, you'll never know what you could've had. True love and deep connection tend to freak men out. Sadly, in many cases, men flee and let the love of their life pass them by. Hindsight is always 20/20. Are you his one that got away? Check out these 10 signs that you might be.


This supermoon has been one powerful moon especially in the area of love, because the supermoon is in Taurus, and Taurus is governed by Venus, the Goddess of Love. If you have someone special in your life your affections will be stronger, and if you don't this is a great time to meet someone new.

Also, during this time of heightened moon energy you need to remember to be good to yourself. Self-love is a powerful form of love that most of us seem to neglect. Check out what astrologer "moon woman" says about taking care of ourselves during a super full moon:

"Yes, we're bathing in the energies of the Super full moon in Taurus. So this is likely to:

- amplify emotional situations, bringing any unresolved situations to a head
- intensify feelings of anxiety / depression for those who are energetically sensitive
- heighten urges to self-soothe with sensual pleasure, like comfort eating and sex
- illuminate any issues round finances, property & possessions that have been hidden

Full Moon in Taurus is likely to elicit our lessons in love. Why?
Taurus is governed by Venus, the Roman name for the Goddess of Love.
So if we've neglected to fill our cup of self-love with regular acts of kindness, tenderness and appreciation, this full moon we'll pine or wish for someone else to fill our cup for us. How?
Adorning us with trinkets and affection, words of reassurance affirming how loveable & beautiful we are or action which proves we are the 'the fairest one of all'.
All of this is narcissistic love. The desires of one who is emotionally immature.
Alternatively, our lack of self love may show up as physical ailments since Taurus is an Earth sign. So if you've been comforting yourself with foods that appease your inner child but aren't really helpful to your body this is when your body is likely to ensure you put an end to that.
Ultimately, self love is a practice - daily choices which reflect reverence, genuine care and respect for ourselves and our needs...something most of us know is important, but find it a challenge to ensure it remains a priority on a daily basis."
