    I firmly believe that actions DO speak louder

    than words. In MY opinion....What you do or do NOT do, are a direct result of your thoughts and a conscious decision, to either act or not. No matter the circumstance, how you react is YOUR decision and you are responsible for it. I don't buy into the excuses of I didn't mean to...

    I believed what a man's words told me about him.

    I fell in love with him and he with me. We spent the last nearly two weeks together at his home. He just drove "us" back to my home, ostensibly so that I could take care of things in order to become his ... I don't even know what. When he'd put all of my luggage in the cart...

    How High Is Your Balance In Your Emotional Bank Account?

    Trust...what a heavy duty word and the meaning behind it is even weightier. In business when discussing behavioral organization and the like, we refer to it as an investment into an emotional bank account of sorts. We all begin with an account that is in the black. It is when it...

    Show Me Don'T Tell Me

    I have always been like this. It has nothing to do with the fact my husband's actions have always meant he hated me. Before all that, it was the same. I have never been affected by sweet talk, compliments and praise.It just doesn't resonate with me. Not sure why, even in college...

    Said Another Way....

    I have a mentor that says it this way, "What you do speaks so loudly, what you say i can not hear!" I love listening to him, he has learned so much and has a unique way of taking out of the box to look at things just enough different to learn too. :)

    The other day my husband and I were at a wedding. I have been on the fence lately as to whether or not I am still in love with him, or if I feel like I want to stay married to him. We have been married for 12 years. So we were sitting next to each other at this wedding, watching...

    They Really Do.

    The Best Way To Predict The Future Is To Create It

    This is a statement I have always believed and tried to live by, actions will always speak louder than words. I am not one to talk about something, and if I do then I am going to do it, without a doubt. Life is for the people who are willing to go and grab it, not the ones who...

    All my life people have told me

    that they love me, or was my friend, or would always be there for me but that wasn't always true. I think that if your going to have the balls to say stuff like that to my face and have me believe it then you provide the goods to back it up. It's as simple as that!

    I tend to judge people only

    after they act rather then based on just their words. This means I give them the benefit of the doubt, and leaves me vulnerable. But, it also helps me to make a better decision about a person'a character.

    A lot of people tend to promise something

    but like what other people say.. "All promises are made to be broken." So do his promises that's why I never trust words. The last time I believed in those, I got fooled.
