And Now Our History Has Been Rewritten

If you’re anything like me, you don’t remember things that are no longer important, your brain just dumps them out of your mind. You don’t remember exact dates, you only remember sequences of events.

What I mean by sequences of events, is that you know that things happened before or after other significant events, so that you can line them up in chronological order but you don’t know what the dates or days were for those things.

For example, you know Tim and Bob got married, but before they got married they got engaged, but you don’t know what the dates of that were exactly, you know that maybe it happened in March and maybe you know the year, or maybe you know the approximate time, but you don’t have specific dates, you just know one thing happened before the other.

Everybody Hurts Sometimes

Dear future (ex)wife/girlfriend,

It is time we have a heart to heart. I know that by the time you read this it will probably be long overdue but it’s better late than never…unless we’re talking about CPR, using a condom, or stopping at a red light.

On second thought, there are many things where better late than never doesn’t apply. I don’t think your new husband or boyfriend would appreciate me finally calling to tell you I love you after we’ve been broken up for years. Read more…

Facebook Fake

With facebook people can’t wait to tell the world how much fun they’re having. You get to see photos of vacations, parties, and everyone having a good time. Status update after status update of what people are doing, or what people are buying, and everything in between.

There are typically two responses to seeing these things appear on your news feed. The first and most common is, “Wow, that looks like a lot of fun, I should do that” and the less common but more accurate is, “They look like they’re having more fun than they probably are.”

We tend to look at such things as vacations, new purchases, and other “cool” things in the most envious light possible. To make matters worse there are probably so many people on your friends list that it seems like everyone is doing something cool but you — making you feel kind of left out. Read more…

Pockets of Love

Finding the strength to move on from a relationship gone bad can be more difficult than it has to be. Many people feel they need to stop loving their ex-person in order to move on. Sometimes this isn’t the right thing to do and can cause more harm than good.

There’s a big difference between loving someone and being in love with someone. Sometimes you have to love someone from afar because you know you’re no good together, but just because you break up doesn’t mean you have to stop loving somebody.

The breakup alone isn’t enough of a reason to stop loving and this is why it’s hard for people to “get over” their ex, because they’ve been told in order for them to move on they must have no feelings for them. I find the more pertinent part is not in how you feel for somebody else, but in how you choose to express those feelings toward them. Read more…

Even The Best Fall Down Sometimes

You may be run into a time in a relationship where things get real hard, so hard, that it causes a break up. When someone tells you “It’s not you, it’s me” there may be more truth to that statement than you may realize.

Although most people consider that statement an insult because it’s a cheap way of someone getting off the hook when they really think the problem is with you, sometimes that may not always be the case. Sometimes the statement is an exact description of what happened to the relationship. Read more…

When It’s Over

The most sobering thing at the end of a relationship is not that you’ll miss what you had because what you had was probably shit but rather that you’ll see the person you left behind give another person everything you had asked for.

And you’ll wonder to yourself, if they had just given all that to you, wouldn’t it have worked out?

I mean, that’s all you were really asking for was for them to show they cared, to put you first, to treat you well, to meet your needs, and to love you. Read more…

FitTeam FitStick Weight Loss Theory

Losing weight has become a global phenomenon especially in America where we also have an obesity epidemic on our hands. It is no surprise that we are getting bigger and bigger because the food industry is marketing us to death and the food lobbyists have heavy influence on the government agencies that are supposed to protect us, like the FDA.

Junk food is a billion dollar business, grocery stores are jam packed with items that are heavily processed, unnatural, and contain tons of ingredients that most of us cannot even pronounce much less know what they are. We no longer eat real food, everything is artificial and the food industry has been conducting an experiment on us for the last 50 years. Read more…

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

If you’re single and in your 20’s watching all of your dream girls get married off, don’t worry it’s not the end of the world. At least half of those girls will be available again by the time they hit 30 years old. And if you miss the boat then, there’s another likely chance that your dream girl will divorce again if she gets remarried.

Good things come to those who wait. I don’t know that waiting for 10 years is part of your strategy, more than likely you’ll be marrying somebody else’s dream girl in your 20’s and then setting them free again sometime after. Read more…

The Law of 80/20 in Relationships

The Pareto principle also known as the rule or law of 80/20 states that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. This is a widely known and accepted rule of business but what most people don’t realize is the law can be applied to almost every aspect of life, including relationships.

If you’ve read books like The 5 Love Languages you may have realized at this point that everyone has a different way of showing appreciation and love for their partner in ways that make sense to them.

Simply put, this means two people could be expressing love for each other in different ways but neither of them realizing that their partners way of expressing their love and appreciation is different from their own, thus they completely ignore or often overlook the things their partner does to express their love and appreciation.

A Job Plan for Wisconsin that Works by Jim Belec

Proof that an everyday average guy can become a local hero overnight. Michigan Resident, Jim Belec, decided to take matters into his own hands when he crossed the border and set out Friday March 6th to raise awareness for the failing Wisconsin Economy.
