“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

woman in rollersLife can be hard. That’s just a fact.

And your outlook has a lot to do with just how hard it is. A positive mindset can help dig you out of a negative situation, not by magically fixing it, but just changing how you frame and view it. Everyone gets into a rut sometimes. The people that (loudly) choose to STAY there, though? Those people…male or female… are bitter bitches.

And they’re allll around us. Worse yet, are you one of them? It’s not too late to change that, buttercup. Recognize these 5 red flags? Distance yourself or fix it. Read more…

It Needs To Be CED: A Mother’s Love

September 16, 2014 Leave a comment

 photo a-mothers-love-the-industry-cosign-ceditorial_zps86f214f6.jpgI’m on the train, on my way to work and I see two pregnant women and a young mother with her two children in the same car. Initially, I didn’t give it much thought until I saw how the young kids were being lovingly innocent in the company of their mother. I also noticed how affectionate and caring she was towards them and I couldn’t help but think of what a mother’s love could do for and to a child. Then I start to wonder how our world could be the way it is if this is the start a child gets from his mother.

The strength of a woman can be unbelievably strong in the midst of what she goes through in her life, this is evident. I can attest that as much as I equally loved both my mother and father, I know for a fact I inherited my mother’s strength and as many barriers I’ve faced in life and the struggles I’ve been through, I made it because of that same strength I saw and continue to see in her.

Mac N’ Cheese Sex: It’s What’s For Dinner

September 13, 2014 Leave a comment

http://www.evasaidit.com/2014/09/mac-n-cheese-sex-whats-dinner/

 photo mac-n-cheese-eva-said-it-the-industry-cosign_zps074a26ec.jpgBy Eva

When I think of mac ‘n cheese (spelled here in the warm, ooey gooey way intentionally), it’s like picturing a steaming bowl of “made-with-love” in my hand. I mean, it is perhaps THE most comforting of all the comfort foods. And what’s more comforting than a hot bowl of mac n’ cheese, right?

A hot bowl of mac n’ cheese sex.

I mean … a hot bed of mac n’ cheese sex. Assuming you can’t find a bowl to fit into. I mean… Anyway. I digress. But it’s real, kiddies. And there’s no processed cheese involved…unless you’re kinky like that. Freaks.

You ever just have a need for your partner? Not necessarily a lustful need, but an emotional need? A feeling that maybe you just need a naked, vaginal hug? Well, this is THAT sex. After a tough week of meetings, travel, and general grump and stress, I found myself tired and just wanting the naked closeness that only intimacy can provide. It wasn’t even about wanting to get off. Orgasm is a proven stress reliever to the body, but this time, my soul was stressed. We were beyond “I need a hug.” And the need was more about us being as close as two humans can physically be, in the most vulnerable way possible. There’s magical healing in the power of touch; a decompression and exhale that happens…and it presses a rest button somewhere in the universe that grounds me. Read more…
