Gloria Steinem on Beauty: ‘After You’re 70, You Have No Interest in Being Sexy’

Feminist icon, author and activist Gloria Steinem has always had a complicated relationship with her looks. Among early feminists she was known as the beautiful one, a designation that rankled.

“Before feminism I was pretty — only after feminism was I ‘beautiful,’” she says. “The low expectations of what feminists looked like had elevated me! People thought if you could get a man, you wouldn’t be a feminist.”

Less was made of her beauty as she aged, and she’s found that freeing: “I want people to listen to me.” Yet she looks terrific at 83, and like most of us, she takes care with her appearance. “I certainly think about my looks,” she says. “I try to look like myself, does that make sense? I feel free and happy, and I like to look that way.”

Steinem talked to PEOPLE exclusively for the 2017 World’s Most Beautiful issue about what beauty means to her, the tyranny of plastic surgery — and why a woman’s never too old to wear a motorcycle belt with studs.

Botox? Fillers? Cosmetic surgery?Botox: no. Fillers: No. Cosmetic surgery: never. I definitely color my hair, but I’ve been doing that since my 20s. God alone knows what’s under there. I get it done every couple of months — if you get those little crayons with the terrible name, Tween Times, you don’t have to go so often.

Do you work hard to stay so slim?I exercise sometimes. I’ve always been conscious of weight because my father and my sister both weighed over 300 lbs. for most of their lives. So it’s like being in a family of alcoholics — you don’t drink. I’m not that careful, I love to eat. I just binge in moderation.

Do you feel bad about your neck, like Nora Ephron did?Yeah, but not that bad. Nora Ephron started to feel bad about her breasts when she was very young — she just felt bad about herself, period. I was so sad that she wrote those articles about breasts and neck — I don’t know what was going on in her head.

Julia Roberts is the 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman! Learn her secrets to staying young — and subscribe now for this special edition featuring over 50 pages of beauties — only in PEOPLE!

Why would you never consider cosmetic surgery?Recently I was in Florida speaking at a book club that benefits services for older people. And the degree to which plastic surgery has taken over is frightening. People would look so much better without it! To look out at these hundreds and hundreds of faces with hair extensions and false lips and false breasts — it made me want to cry. The culture is perfectly clear that it’s gendered — men don’t do it to the same degree.

But you’re genetically blessed…Well I don’t know. My neck is sagging, everything is sagging. My skin is terrible. But so what? I would be afraid no one would listen to me. Talking to someone with bad plastic surgery is like talking to a man with a bad toupee. You cannot think about anything else.

Watch the full episode of World’s Most Beautiful: Rescue Me now on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to  PEOPLE.com/PEN or download the PEN app on your favorite device.

Is there any particular look you aim for as you’ve gotten older?I’m just wearing what I’ve always worn. I saw a motorcycle belt with studs and sequins in the window of a men’s Harley Davidson’s store and went in and bought it. The guy was kind of appalled. I am conscious of trying to look cool, but I do occasionally think to myself — maybe an 83-year-old woman should not be wearing a motorcycle belt! Then I do it anyway.

 

Do you think about looking sexy?Listen, after you’re 70 you have no interest in being sexy. You have no interest in sex, so the idea of being sexy is like, hello, I have all those brain cells now for something else! The culture is so sexualized, it’s hard to explain that you don’t miss it. It isn’t better, it isn’t worse. It’s just different.

Jay Pharoah Slams SNL over Firing: ‘You Go Where You’re Appreciated’

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

It’s been eight months since Jay Pharoah’s surprise departure from Saturday Night Live, and the comedian is finally opening up about his exit.

In an interview with HOT 97, Pharoah shared his feelings about his role, or lack thereof, on the show where he starred for six seasons.

“You go where you’re appreciated,” he said. “They put people into boxes. Whatever they want you to do, they expect you to do. And I’m fiery too … I’m not a ‘yes n—–.’ That’s not me.”

The comedian acknowledged that he grew frustrated as his fellow cast members told him how they felt his talent wasn’t being used. Arriving at SNL thanks in great part to the viral success of his spot-on impressions of Jay Z and other stars, Pharoah says he felt he was put in an “impression box.”

After years of sitting behind Fred Armisen, the actor was finally able to showcase his most popular impression, when he was promoted to play President Obama in 2013. While the show has seen a surge in viewership and buzz amid Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of President Trump, Pharoah opines that SNL “gave up” on Obama.

FROM COINAGE: The True Cost of Famous TV Apartments

“If you really noticed, for the last year and a half, they didn’t do any Obama sketches,” he said. “I was like, ‘Just let me do my character and we’ll be fine.’ didn’t want to do that.”

Pharoah also discussed in the interview his involvement in adding more black performers and writers to the show. Saying he was almost fired in 2013 for his push to diversify, he took credit for the likes of Leslie Jones and Sasheer Zamata coming onboard. “I am the reason it happened,” he claimed.

Despite his criticism and dismissal, the comedian, who is set to star in Showtime’s White Famous, contends he doesn’t hold any ill will toward the show or boss Lorne Michaels. Impersonating fellow SNL alum Chris Rock, Pharaoh cracked, “I met Lorne Michaels and I ain’t been broke ever since.”

10 Comics That Will Speak To You If You’re Totally Sick Of Dating

Are you at the point where you’re debating deleting Tinder and just having your grandma set you up with someone? If the answer is “yeah, maybe,” we’ve found an Instagram account that will speak to you.

On Doodles By Jess, Amsterdam-based art director Jessica Stahl draws super relatable cartoons illustrating her daily life. Some of our favorite doodles document her frustrating experiences with modern dating:

And less-than-generous sex partners:

Thank you for presuming to know my body better than myself

A post shared by Doodles By Jess (@vanillacooldance) on

We know that guy, too. 

The 27-year-old illustrator told The Huffington Post that her doodles are based on her own life and observations of people around her. When it comes to dating, her cartoon heroine is “a series of contradictions.” 

“She’s someone who doesn’t want to be tied down, but who is also still searching for love,” Stahl explained. “She embraces her sexuality and is comically realizing that her preconceived notions about men and dating are way off the mark.”

See more of Stahl’s illustrations below, or head to her Instagram to see them all.

Four best friends learn that running a party-planning business isn’t the good time they thought it would be in this fresh and funny tween novel from the authors of At Your Service and Breaking the Ice. Summer may have come and gone, but for the girls of RSVP, things are just heating up! They put together some of the best parties in town over the summer, and now the tween party-planners have been hired to plan a big-time wedding. Only problem? The Bridezilla’s demands are increasingly loony, and Sadie, Lauren, Becca, and Vi need to figure out how to handle her without going crazy themselves. But with school back in session and less time on their hands, managing the bride isn’t so easy! Lauren is having an especially hard time with the balancing act, and when her grades start to suffer, she’s seeing red. Vi’s dad has also started his new job as janitor at their middle school and really, could there be anything more mortifying than that? According to Becca-yes. Because she’s just learned that she needs braces…and she isn’t happy about it. And Sadie’s already-strained relationship with her mom has not been helped by RSVP’s raiding of Mom’s VIP bride. But when a hurricane threatens Sandpiper Beach and the first-ever RSVP wedding, all four girls must gain a new perspective fast…before this first walk down the aisle becomes their last.

What to Expect Before You’re Expecting


Announcing the prequel. From Heidi Murkoff, author of America’s bestselling pregnancy and parenting books, comes the must-have guide every expectant couple needs before they even conceive-the first step in "What to Expect: What to Expect Before You’re Expecting." An estimated 11 million couples in the U.S. are currently trying to conceive, and medical groups now recommend that all hopeful parents plan for baby-making at least three months before they begin trying. And who better to guide wanna-be moms and dads step-by-step through the preconception (and conception) process than Heidi Murkoff? It’s all here. Everything couples need to know before sperm and egg meet up. Packed with the same kind of reassuring, empathetic, and practical information and advice and tips that readers have come to expect from What to Expect, only sooner. Which baby-friendly foods to order up (say yes to yams) and which fertility-busters to avoid (see you later, saturated fat); lifestyle adjustments that you’ll want to make (cut back on cocktails and caffeine) and those you can probably skip (that switch to boxers). How to pinpoint ovulation, time lovemaking, keep on-demand sex sexy, and separate conception fact (it takes the average couple up to 12 months to make a baby) from myth (position matters). Plus, when to seek help and the latest on fertility treatments-from Clomid and IVF to surrogacy and more. Complete with a fill-in fertility journal to keep track of the babymaking adventure and special tips throughout for hopeful dads. Next step? "What to Expect When You’re Expecting," of course.

Stop What You’re Texting And Look At This New Emoticon

Hello, everyone. It is the year 2015. We still punctuate our emails and texts with little human faces; we’ve just moved on to emojis, where the faces are a little cuter. And there’s one that looks like poop.

We’re not too good for emoticons. They’re just not the novelty they once were in, say, 2001. Some we never really figured out — looking at you, weird dollar sign mouth (“:$ “) — so we stick to smiles and frowns. They’re pretty old news, TBH.

But what if we told you there’s a new emoticon? That you haven’t seen? Even though you’ve seen all of them? 

Behold!

What? Where? Why? Glad you asked. 

What it is: An apostrophe, a comma, a colon and a closed parenthetical mark make up this new sassy smiley. ‘,:) 

Where it came from: We found it on someone’s Tumblr, above the comment “10/10,” and was originally posted by user failsyndrome. It is not listed on Wikipedia’s list of emoticons. If you’ve been using it this whole time, congratulations on your genius, but no thanks for not sharing.

Why we need it: The human experience encompasses a wide range of emotions which are sometimes conveyed visually in the form of facial expressions. This one, to us, is the face you make when you go, “Really?” while you’re trying to size someone up in a friendly way but you’re right on the edge of getting real. Like this:

Also, we just want to point out that if it’s 2015 and people are still discovering new ways to anthropomorphize punctuation, then there are probably some other emoticons out there waiting to be found. Happy hunting.

Smile When You’re Lying

Smile When You’re Lying


From Bangkok to Bogotá, a hilarious behind-the-brochures tour of picture-perfect locales, dangerous destinations, and overrated hellholes from a guy who knows the truth about travelTravel writer, editor, and photographer Chuck Thompson has spent more than a decade traipsing through thirty-five (and counting) countries across the globe, and he’s had enough. Enough of the half-truths demanded by magazine editors, enough of the endlessly recycled clichés regarded as good travel writing, and enough of the ugly secrets fiercely guarded by the travel industry. But mostly, he’s had enough of returning home from assignments and leaving the most interesting stories and the most provocative insights on the editing-room floor. From getting swindled in Thailand to running afoul of customs inspectors in Belarus, from defusing hostile Swedish rockers backstage in Germany to a closed-door meeting with travel execs telling him why he’s about to be fired once again, Thompson’s no-holds-barred style is refreshing, invigorating, and all those other adjectives travel writers use to describe spa vacations where the main attraction is a daily colonic. Smile When You’re Lying takes readers on an irresistible series of adventures in Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and beyond; details the effects of globalization on the casual traveler and ponders the future of travel as we know it; and offers up a treasure trove of travel-industry secrets collected throughout a decidedly speckled career.

The Best Places to Shop for Jeans, Dresses, and Work Outfits If You’re Size 26/28

By Sarah Conley

If you love fashion, getting dressed should be a treat. That is, of course, unless you happen to be plus-size. Headlines will have you believe that the plus-size fashion industry is booming, but if you wear a size 26/28, the fashion-forward options are still extremely limited. For example, Violeta by Mango stops at a size 22, while fast-fashion retailers like Fashion to Figure, ASOS, and H&M+ stop at a size 24.

Although shopping in retail stores is possible at only a handful of brands, there are more retailers to be found online. We know you’ve got places to be and people to see, so we’ve put together this quick and easy shopping guide to navigating the best brands that offer sizes 26 and 28.

Workwear: Lane Bryant
When it comes to workwear, Lane Bryant is a classic. Its pants come in a variety of hem lengths and cuts, and the assortment includes a few trend colors every season. For jackets, the retailer has everything from soft motos to classic stretch blazers, plus plenty of top options to mix in for variety.
Other options: ELOQUII, IGIGI, Lands’ End

Workwear top picks:

lane-bryant-lena-pant

Lena Sexy Stretch Printed Ankle Pants, $ 64.95 at Lane Bryant

Tailored Stretch Suit Jacket, $ 79.95 at Lane Bryant

Dresses: Kiyonna and IGIGI
While most brands offer dresses, Kiyonna and IGIGI lead the pack. Between the two, they stock dresses for every occasion—from the office to dinner, date night, and every wedding in between. Strengths: Kiyonna is great at designing bust- and waist-enhancing dresses in solid colors; IGIGI has fun with saturated jewel tones and prints, effortlessly mixing them into daytime and office-appropriate styles. It also has a small but mighty selection of gowns and bridal.
Other options: Lane Bryant, ELOQUII, eShakti, SimplyBe

Dresses top picks:

igigi-kiyonna-dress

Sweetheart Knit Wrapdress, $ 98 at Kiyonna

igigi-ryna-dress

Skirts: ELOQUII
Since its relaunch in 2014, ELOQUII has become known for midi skirts. The brand’s classic Studio Midi Skirt comes in nine colors—and that’s not counting trend-driven options in exclusive prints and seasonal textures. ELOQUII launched sizes 26 and 28 earlier this year, and the extended sizes selection includes a variety of maxi, pencil, circle, and tulle skirt options.
Other options: eShakti, Lane Bryant

Denim: Torrid
Torrid has perfected plus size denim. The brand boasts 11 fits in 27 washes, and even when you narrow down the options by size 28, you’re still presented with more than 150 different styles. Plus, you can shop by length, ranging from extra short all the way to extra tall. There are boyfriend jeans, jeggings, and boot-cuts aplenty.
Other options: Old Navy, Lane Bryant

Denim top picks:

tripp-skinny-jean

Trip Skinny Denim Pants, $ 68.50 at Torrid

torrid-slim-boot-jean

Weekend and Casual: Old Navy
Old Navy has great basics and athleisure styles across the board, but tops are where the brand really shines. Essentials like soft basic tees, chambray shirts, and easy button-downs rotate in and out seasonally, with the best pieces moving super quickly, so keep an eye out (and act fast). Plus, you can always count on them for a classic Breton stripe.
Other options: Torrid, Lands’ End

You’re Not an Alien, You’re an Empath

I lived almost 40 years of my life thinking I was an alien. I always felt like I didn’t belong. I strived to be normal, especially in my teens and early twenties, then after a while, I realized the futility of that, went the opposite way and embraced my uniqueness.

But I didn’t really.

Deep down, underneath all that boasting about being different and bashing normalcy, I desperately yearned to be just like everyone else, to be normal and accepted.

And most of all, to not feel so damn much.

When others could get angry, yell and be over it in 20 minutes, I feared what that anger would do to me if I actually let it in. Or worse, out.

When others walked around carefree, not noticing other people, I saw the hunched old lady on the wooden bench across the street and her loneliness consumed me.

When others could jump out of bed ready to face the day, I spent two hours putting on my mental armor to protect myself from the upcoming barrage of emotions the world would inevitably throw at me.

When others were happily thriving, I spent years in a suffocating layer of deep, dark emotions, merely fighting to survive just one more day, let alone thrive.

When others could go to parties, mingle and have fun, I searched for a bathroom to hide in for 5 minutes so I could get away from the overstimulation of energy before I exploded.

When others were talking about being their authentic selves, I yearned to know who that was and whether she really existed.

When others were deepening their intimacy with their partners, I was running away from him terrified to lose myself yet longing desperately for connection.

And then one day I discovered the term “empath” and I took to it like a starving baby to a lactating nipple. I devoured it, researching the sweet holy milk out of it. As if I had finally come home after a lifetime away, I realized:

I’m not an alien. I’m an empath.

If you relate to any of the above examples, chances are you’re an empath too.

If you’re a highly sensitive person and you can sense or absorb the energy and emotions of other people, animals or nature, you’re an empath.

There is a home for you on this earth after all. In fact, earth is your home, and you are not alone.

Dr. Elaine Aron from the Foundation for the Study of Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP’s) estimates that 15-20 percent of earth’s population is Highly Sensitive. There’s no official documented consensus on how many HSP’s are empaths, but empaths don’t need external evidence to prove something for us, we feel it.

You feel it now too, don’t you? You don’t feel as alone as you did before you started reading this article.

The first and most important step to rediscovering your authentic self and embracing who you are is to start nurturing your nature.

In the same way that you would nurture a plant back to life, you can start nurturing yourself. Here are some tips:

1. Pick off the dead leaves of old, negative beliefs about yourself and your highly sensitive nature.

Every time you have a negative thought about your sensitivity, allow it to drop away. Don’t resist, judge or argue with it. Just let it come and go. You don’t get angry at the dead leaves on the plant nor do you criticize, judge or condemn them. You just pick them off and throw them in the trash without a second thought. Give yourself the same courtesy you give the plant and do the same for your negative beliefs. When you feel them rising, simply drop them in the mental trash and carry on with what you were doing. You may have to do this a hundred times a day every day, but each time you do, their power will be less and less and after a while, you won’t have any dead leaves left to pick.

2. Give yourself plenty of water and nutrient rich food for your body.

Your body is your temple. You may not know this yet, but eventually, you’ll be using it in a powerful way to consciously serve your loved ones and those lucky enough to be in your energetic vicinity. Your sensitivity is not only a gift for you, it’s a gift for the world. And when you realize the incredible impact you can make with your gift, utilizing your body as a vessel through which emotional energy is physically translated, you’ll be glad you started to take care of it today.

3. Give yourself nutrient rich food for your soul.

Read inspirational books and quotes, listen to music that moves you, buy or create beautiful art pieces for your home. Meditate, journal, visualize. Light candles and take warm baths infused with natural oils. Spend time alone, in nature or with animals. Get out in the sun, feel the breeze on your face, watch the moon rise. Take a nap, lie in a hammock, stare at the sky. What soothes our soul is different for each of us so do what makes you feel good inside. No one can decide that for you except you. Explore different ways to feel a sense of sacredness.

4. Check in with yourself every day to make sure you have enough of what you need to come back to life.

Nurturing yourself is a daily habit, not something you do once a month or when you go on vacation twice a year. If you’re extremely busy, you don’t need to usurp your entire schedule to fit in nurturing time. Though it’s not a bad idea, sometimes it’s not practical. It doesn’t matter what you do, it matters how you do it. You can incorporate a sense of the sacred, self-love and mindfulness in anything you do. You may not have time every day to meditate but you have 24 hours each day to be mindful of yourself no matter what you may be doing. It’s not about the activity, it’s about your state of being while you’re doing the activity that matters. Remind yourself to check in throughout the day.

5. Give yourself time to heal.

You don’t expect the plant to recover overnight, why would you expect anything different from yourself? It took me decades to build the wall of shame and self-hatred around me, I can’t expect it to magically disappear just because I decided to love myself one day. It’s a process of chipping away at the old, peeling layer after layer, letting go and being diligent and consistent with the new. Having the patience to love yourself even when you’re impatient about your own growth is key to deeper self-love. Use your natural compassionate tendencies and give yourself the care, concern and empathy you have selflessly been giving others your whole life. It’s your turn.

You’re Washing Your Swimsuit All Wrong: Here’s How to Extend The Life of It

kate-moss-arthur-elgort

You’ve found the perfect swimsuit. OK, well maybe it’s more like the perfect collection of swimsuits (hey, when they’re this cute, who can stop at one?). Now it’s time to take care of them and make sure they don’t fade, stretch out, or get grimy.

Making a suit last all summer and beyond is all in the washing, says John Mahdessian, owner of Madame Paulette, where New Yorkers send their finest clothes to be dry-cleaned (you also might recognize his name if you watch The Real Housewives of New York. He’s Dorinda Medley’s beau!) Mahdessian told us that women tend to do all the wrong things when it comes to laundering their swimsuits, ruining them by (or even before) summer’s end. Here are his tips and tricks for extending the life of your suit:

1. Before you jump in: Rinse off any body oils or body makeup, which will ruin your swimsuit over time.

2. Hand-washing is your best bet: “I prefer the hand-washing and soaking technique with a neutral detergent, like Palmolive or Ivory soap,” said Mahdessian. First, rinse the suit with water to flush out any chlorine or debris, then add soap and rub gently. Be sure to rinse out all of the soap and lay flat to dry.

3. If you can’t hand-wash: “Buy a mesh laundry bag and put the suit in there before throwing it into the machine on a gentle cycle,” said Mahdessian. “Otherwise, the mechanical action will stretch the fabric and it can get bungled, twisted, and tied up.”

4. Don’t leave it to dry in the sun: Lay your suit flat on a towel to dry so it doesn’t stretch out—and do so in the shade. If you leave your suit out to bake in the sun for more than a couple of hours, it will begin to fade. And whatever you do, don’t put it in the dryer.

5. If you’ve got a stain: If the stain is wet, lightly dab it, then start the hand-washing process when you get home. If the stain is dry, do not scratch it off. If you do, you can scratch out some of the dye, which can never be repaired. If you can’t get the stain out, head to your local dry cleaner.

6. Can’t get those little particles sand out of the fibers of your swimsuit? First, try hand-washing and soaking it for a bit in water. If that doesn’t work, wait until the swimsuit dries completely and grab your hair-dryer. Blow out the sand particles on a light and cool setting.

Youre Being Googled! Building an Online Presence and Networking Strategy That Advances Your Career


In today''s world, the Internet is proving to be the most important resource people can use to network and put their name out in the open. When searching for a person on Google, what does – and doesn''t – show up in the search results can be either rewarding or damaging to an individual. Digital dirt- whatever is associated with a person''s name in search features – can help to highlight an individual''s past experiences, skills, and talents. Yet links to negative websites, unflattering pictures, or bad associations can hinder a person from achieving the opportunities they seek.Six Figure Networking aims to advise readers about the advantages of various social media tools, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, as a way of networking yourself to the world. If the information isn''t out there, no one is going to be able to find it. But the information has to be positive in order to be advantageous for building connections, and not anything that will deter people from associating with you.So what if you haven''t spent the last year honing a great online image and building a community of followers ready to recommend you at a moment’s notice? Is it too late? No. Franzoni and Greenspan first provide readers a fast overview of the social media landscape from large public open spaces to a host of highly effective niche markets for your message. Then they show you how to use the tools – and avoid the social gaffes – both obvious and at least three you haven’t considered. And, they provide real-life examples of successful job campaigns including how to express yourself in different social outlets. Finally, a plan for personal branding that will get you through your current search and provide some career insurance in future years.

Into Our 40s: 10 Signs You’re Comfortably (and Happily) Married

I’ve been married 15 years, and no, it hasn’t been easy. In fact, it’s been a 15-year Ironman that requires the equivalent of a daily training regimen. Throughout the years, we’ve confronted major adversity and also have experienced moments of nirvana and immense joy. We’ve grown to appreciate that marriage is a lifelong journey we’re on together. And it has taken us 15 years to get to the place we’re at today and like all other couples, are continuously evolving in our communication, roles and relationship as a whole.

So without further ado, in true Letterman fashion, I humbly present my top 10 signs you’re in a good place:

1. You either finish each other’s sentences when out in public or sit comfortably in absolute silence when alone together.

2. Daily dialogues exist in your own peculiar code language. For example, taken from your network of contacts, you’ve developed a vast database of aliases whereby each one conveys an entire life perspective. Thus, when your spouse’s behavior requires a tune-up, you effectively snap him to his senses with a quick “alias (name) drop.”

3. You still make each other laugh a lot, and have built up a repertoire of witty material that would rival that of any career comedian.

4. You’re 100 percent yourself and unreservedly confide your hidden agendas and Machiavellian aspirations.

5. You come clean about your biggest insecurities, anxieties and fears and encourage each other when the other feels weak.

6. Your kids know they face a united front and no longer bother trying to play one parent against the other.

7. You challenge your spouse to sniff unwashed parts of your body — just for kicks, because you’re still immature like that.

8. Your spouse forces you to look in the mirror and face your biggest flaws then mercilessly challenges you to somehow work them out.

9. You attend weddings and witness newlyweds profess their undying love and devotion to one another. And in unison, nod knowingly, for only through pain and suffering will those proclamations ultimately prove true or false.

10. You know that together, you can conquer the world and have the years, wrinkles, gray hairs, and history to prove it!

3 Ways to Rediscover Your Resilience When You’re Tapped Out

If there’s one thing we believe, it’s this: You can’t annihilate stress; it’s simply part of life. What you can do is shift your response to stress, and through that process, build up resilience to it. But I think we can take it one step further. What if stress isn’t just an ill to manage, but something with a big upside? What if the experiences that cause you the most stress are actually your biggest opportunity to develop the innate resilience that makes you terrifically strong?

Here’s an example. At age 15, honor student and varsity track athlete Danielle Orner noticed a bump on her leg. Long story short, Danielle was diagnosed with bone cancer. Chemo treatments left her too weak to attend school or play sports, not to mention bald. But she didn’t let any of it bring her down. As Danielle describes in her TEDx talk, she covered her bare head with body glitter and fake tattoos. She followed up the amputation of her lower right leg by learning to walk on a prosthetic leg and starting a public speaking tour about how to survive difficult times. She was the poster child of resilience.

Then the cancer came back, this time in her lungs. The scans, surgeries, and treatments lasted an entire decade. Danielle was sure the suffering would break her. But it didn’t. Instead, these experiences helped her grow into her strengths and gifts. She’s now a writer, actor, speaker, and yoga practitioner (and five years cancer-free).

Danielle Orner exudes resilience and courage. But this is what really matters: Her story proves that stressful challenges are what allow resilience to spring forth from deep within, whether you’re facing disease, a tough work situation, or family struggles. Here’s how to tap into your innate resilience so you can bounce back stronger when life throws its inevitable punches.

Stop seeking perfection or normalcy. After each round of bad news, Danielle wanted nothing more than to live the normal, cancer-free life her peers were living. Who could blame her? But when she stopped fighting against the current of her life — and she stopped trying to “pass” for normal — she began to unearth her resilience. She stopped believing that her life had to look a certain way, and that freed her up to not only accept herself, but also to make better and smarter choices that helped her heal.

Try this. Examine your beliefs about happiness. Are you telling yourself you’ll be happy or make time for what brings you joy once XYZ is resolved? Once the right circumstances arrive, or when you’re a better parent or employee? You’re moving the goalposts of your resilience with every one of these thoughts. Try questioning and revising these beliefs them instead, because your peace or joy doesn’t depend on perfection or normalcy.

Experience something new. How often do you hold yourself back from having a new experience, in fear that you’re not good enough, thin enough, smart enough to have it? Danielle tells a story of walking into her first yoga class as an amputee and being sure the instructor was going to kick her out. An amputee? Do yoga? Of course he didn’t, and over time yoga helped heal her mind, body, and spirit.

Try this. Sign up for a new fitness class. Try a new outdoor activity. Take on a different responsibility at work. Cook a meal you’ve never had before. Even play a new board game with your family! Any new, cool thing you try shows you can learn, grow, and change. This helps see yourself in a new light and refill your emotional and spiritual wells, an important facet of resilience.

Pick just one thing that makes your life better, and give it the spotlight. There’s scores of advice online about the benefits of keeping a gratitude journal. But when you’re in the throes of chaos at work or home, that advice often falls on deaf ears–and rightfully so. Who can really muster the energy to take a good fortune inventory when you face conflicting deadlines at work or the entire family comes down with the stomach flu?

Try this. Ditch the list. Instead, think of one very important thing that you DO have and imagine what life would be like without that thing. The simple answer is, a whole lot worse. There is always something to appreciate, so until the storm blows over, turn your attention to that one good thing, think about all the ways it makes your life better, and feel your energy rise.

Perhaps you aren’t dealing with a serious disease. Maybe work and family are your stress triggers. Either way, you have this in common with Danielle: you are both more resilient than you think. And those stressful things you face? They are what’s cultivating your extraordinary strength. You (and your resilience) got this.

9 Signs You’re Finally in a Mature, Adult Relationship

This was originally published at www.elitedaily.com

Media dictates so much in today’s world — including relationships.

Whether portraying unrequited love, forbidden love or passionate love, the media’s ideas of love all have something in common: drama.

After all, drama drives the media.

But, guess what? When you’re in a dramatic relationship, this reality isn’t so appealing. Dramatic relationships are just plain sh*tty, and there’s nothing romantic or alluring about that.

Real relationships, to be quite honest, could almost be considered boring, and the media doesn’t value “boring.”

For years, I bought into the idea that a relationship needed some type of drama to be legitimized. As I’m settling down, I’m realizing how truly wrong and exhausting that mentality was.

For the first time in… well, ever, I’m in a healthy, mature relationship. It’s different than previous relationships I’ve had because this one is real. It is solid. It is stable. It is everything I’ve ever wanted, and everything I didn’t know I needed.

It’s also everything I ran away from in the past because it just seemed too “boring.” Only now am I realizing that there is a difference between a boring relationship and a stable, mature one.

1. Being your significant other’s partner isn’t hard.

Until recently, I always struggled when I was in a relationship. Feelings of uncertainty and anxiety were overwhelmingly normal, while feeling secure in the relationship was not.

Maybe this is obvious, but it shouldn’t be the case. Being someone’s partner should come easily rather than feel like a chore or a responsibility.

2. You don’t have to be in contact 24/7.

Part of an adult relationship is realizing that each person has his or her own world, separate of one another. This means that being together all the time or constantly texting just isn’t feasible, and that is OK.

Actually, it’s even nice. I love my boyfriend, but if I talked to him constantly, I’d go crazy.

3. You don’t want to change your significant other.

I’ll admit that I have a history of seeking out broken people and trying to fix them, which never ends well. This isn’t the case in a healthy relationship.

In a healthy relationship, changing your partner shouldn’t even be a desire on your radar. Changing annoying little habits is one thing, but changing or fixing who someone is as a person should not be your goal. Maybe he or she isn’t perfect, but he or she shouldn’t have to be.

4. Your significant other balances you out — and even calls you out.

Rather than always agreeing on every aspect of life, your relationship tests and challenges your views. Your partner brings new views to light — possibly ideas that oppose your own.

When you don’t agree on a topic, it isn’t the end of the world. You acknowledge each other’s positions and move on.

5. Discussing the future isn’t scary.

In immature relationships, there is less certainty and less communication about the status of the relationship, therefore less willingness to discuss the future.

In an adult relationship, plans can be made months in advance without stopping to wonder where the relationship will or won’t be.

6. You may disagree, but you don’t all-out fight.

Observing how the other person argues and adjusting your own style is a learning process, but part of a mature relationship. For example, I tend to shut down when I am angry, whereas my boyfriend is more direct.

Adjusting to this was difficult at first, but now that we know each other’s style of disagreement, we are able to communicate in a more mature manner.

7. Showing your love becomes more important than verbally expressing it.

It used to irritate me that I am more vocal about telling my boyfriend I love him. He, on the other hand, doesn’t say it as often, but shows it in his actions.

Over time, I’ve realized that this is preferable to hearing it all the time. Sometimes love is in the day-to-day actions rather than the literal words, and this is definitely a more mature viewpoint.

8. Jealousy is a non-issue because the relationship is founded on trust.

In an adult relationship, the male can have female friends and vice-versa without the world coming to a screeching halt. Each partner is secure in the other’s commitment and does not possess an unfounded worry about cheating or dishonesty.

9. You’re in sync with one another — mentally and physically.

This may sound like it’s about sex, but it is not the case. It’s more about knowing a person so well and having developed such a connection that his or her smallest movement can be predicted — or sentences finished. It’s about him or her becoming an extension of you in a healthy way.

Robert De Niro Tells Graduating Art Students: ‘You’re F***ed’

“You made it,” actor Robert De Niro told New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts graduates on Friday. “And you’re f***ed.”

The reality check to aspiring actors, dancers and others with creative degrees in the opening lines of De Niro’s commencement speech received an uproarious applause.

“The graduates in accounting? They all have jobs,” the legendary actor continued. “Where does that leave you? Envious of those accountants? I doubt it. They had a choice. Maybe they were passionate about accounting but I think it’s more likely that they used reason and logic and common sense to reach for a career that could give them the expectation of success and stability. Reason, logic, common sense at the Tisch School of Arts? Are you kidding me? But you didn’t have that choice, did you? You discovered a talent, developed an ambition and recognized your passion.”

That aversion to practical thinking, he told students, is what will make them successful.

“When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense,” De Niro told the new alums. “You aren’t just following dreams, you’re reaching for your destiny. You’re a dancer, a singer, a choreographer, a musician, a filmmaker, a writer, a photographer, a director, a producer, an actor, an artist. Yeah, you’re f***ed. The good news is that that’s not a bad place to start.”

De Niro, a two-time Oscar winner, warned students to expect rejection and to not take it personally, like when he jokingly found out he couldn’t play Martin Luther King Jr. in “Selma.”

In the end, he sounded confident that the Tisch graduates will get their big breaks.

“I’m here to hand out my pictures and resumes to the directing and producing graduates.”

It’s OK To Be Fat. Go Ahead. You’re Allowed.

I know the fat shamers on the anti-fat Reddit threads and the “concern trolls” all over the world will disagree heartily, but I am allowed to take up as much space as I want to take up. And, you know what else? I do not OWE IT TO ANYONE to be fat and healthy, either.

Contrary to popular opinion, I can be fat and healthy if I want to be. I can also be fat and unhealthy. Fat people have existed as long as humans have existed, so get used to us. We’re not going to go and hide just because a bunch of people who have a lot of time to waste on a computer are creating hate sights dedicated to making fun of our fat body. I’ve been fat for over 30 years. My fat skin is extra thick and used to your vile and mean comments. They roll right off my back. (And right over my fat ass, too.) And, the mean threads that are started by the fat haters actually fuel my fire and serve as a reminder as to how much there is still to do in the Body Acceptance movement.

To me, it’s plain and simple: You get to exist any way you want to exist. As Pink so eloquently put it recently when being attacked about her body: “I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you, either. I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off.”

Pink is saying what a lot of us “fatties” in the Body Acceptance movement repeat over and over. “My body, my business. Your body, your business.” I have had my run-ins with people (total strangers) trying to police my body and the customers of my lingerie boutique. I even was on CNN talking about the right to be fat and wear lingerie. My boutique and I got embroiled in a fierce media debate about whether or not my plus size lingerie boutique glorifies obesity.

I think it’s happiness that really infuriates and confuses some fat haters. People are often baffled when they see happy fat people. And when you add in the idea that we are not addicted to dieting or working out or obsessed with the notion that we should become some thin version of ourselves, well, that really throws the shamers and haters for a loop. I literally had to defend, on national TV, our right to exist as fat women who want to wear sexy and very revealing lingerie. All bodies are good bodies. All bodies deserve to be celebrated. No one body is better than another body.

So, yes, you can EXIST and take up more space than your neighbor. You do not have to quality that existence with a “but, I am fat and healthy.” You don’t have to justify anything to anyone about your body and what it looks like on the outside or the inside. The people who want to police your body are just sad, unhappy people with way too much time on their hands. They have nothing better to do. Me, on the other hand, I have shit to do. And, the first item on my TO-DO list is to help fat, thick, curvy women to find some sexy lingerie and help them celebrate their fat, luscious bodies.

7 Signs You’re Ready for a Major Life Change

2015-05-06-1430936858-800036-4431908004_11229444ae.jpg

There are moments in life when we know we need to drastically shift the course of our lives in order to live a life we love and truly be happy. Moments that while sometimes scary, will lead to a change that allows us to grow, evolve, and finally become who we were meant to be.

Wondering if you’re ready for that level of change and the joy that follows? Here are seven sure-fire signs you are ready and open for the big changes ahead.

1. You’re going through a life upheaval.

When you are experiencing a life upheaval whether it’s in your career, relationship, family life, or finances, it’s usually an indication that a change of course is necessary. It also represents an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself, what you want, and how to make the necessary changes to deliver the joy and peace you are seeking. A major life upheaval is nothing more than an invitation to do a bit of digging to grow and evolve as a person while setting new strategies into place to make life what you want it to be. Don’t let this rocky road be a sign that your life is doomed.

2. You’re at the end of your rope and you know it’s now or never.

You’ve been thinking about making a change for a while and you have had just about enough of the lack, unhappiness, frustration, and negativity that has been seeping into your soul. You’re ready to rewrite your life story and make it one of joy, peace, abundance, and success and are willing to do what it takes to create a life you love because you know you are worthy of that. We all are.

3. You’re tired of merely surviving.

You know on a fundamental level that life is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and truly loved and just paying the bills and getting by each month is slowly killing the creative and adventurous soul of yours. You dream of the day you can finally do what you love and live your life purpose and you are no longer willing to just survive. Your soul is telling you it’s your time to thrive.

4. Your current life is too small to fit your big dreams.

You’ve got big dreams and as you look around your current life you know that some things are going to have to shift dramatically to make room for everything you want to do. Whether you want to quit your job and backpack through Europe or build a cabin in the woods to write your amazing novel, big things need to happen and you know that in order for your dreams to become reality, you have to embrace the changes that are coming.

5. Your soul is calling you to be, have, and do more.

At first glance you thought life was great and you had nothing to complain about, but you are beginning to feel an internal desire to do so much more. Your vision isn’t completely clear and you aren’t sure where you might end up, but things are changing within you already and you know that as soon as you say ‘yes’ to that little voice inside nudging you along, the dominoes will begin to fall and your life is going to transform before your very eyes. It’s not a question of if you have more to be, have, and do, it’s a question of if you are ready. Well, are you?

6. All signs point to ‘YES’.

You’re noticing a common theme in your circle of friends, colleagues, and in the world around you. More people are making seemingly crazy decisions to quit their jobs, move across the country, or live their big dream and you can’t help but wonder why. The truth is, these are merely messages from the Universe telling you, yes my dear it’s time. Time for you to take the leap, the risk, and live a little (or a lot). There’s a whole world out there waiting for you and you are beginning to understand your time is coming.

7. You’re reading this article.

The fact that you are on the verge of a major life change isn’t news to you. You can feel the inner rumbling of your dreams and the magnetic force of inspiration pulling you to your purpose and this article is just confirmation for you. Listen to your heart and take the next step. There is no secret map that will highlight your path for you, all you have to do is follow your intuition and take inspired action. It really is that easy.

Couple Married 81 Years: ‘You’re Damn Right’ We’re Still In Love

After 81 years of marriage, Dale and Alice Rockey still haven’t lost their spark.

“You don’t see them together without holding hands,” their son Tom Rockey told Kansas City’s FOX 4 News.

On Saturday, the Rockeys were honored by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian group based in San Bernardino, California, as part of the organization’s 2015 Longest Married Couple Project. The title is based on nominations, so this does not make the pair the indisputable longest-married couple in the country — just the longest-married among the 375 nominees.

2015-02-10-ScreenShot20150210at11.00.58AM.png

The Rockeys — who tied the knot on December 29, 1933 — grew up just a couple blocks from each other in Hemingford, Nebraska. According to the Kansas City Star, their romance began one afternoon before a double date they had planned — but Alice was supposed to be going with another guy and Dale with another girl.

When the other girl was still at work, Dale Rockey pulled up in front of Alice’s house. She was sitting on the front porch.

“He came by and says, ‘You want to go for a ride?’” recalled Alice Rockey. “So we went for a ride, and that was our first date.”

The pair went on to have five sons, 15 grandkids, 28 great-grandkids and six great-great grandchildren.

When asked on Saturday, “Do you still love each other after all this time?”, Dale replied with a laugh, “You’re damn right!”

For more on their love story, watch the video above or head over to the Kansas City Star.

You’re Engaged, Now What? Six Steps to Take Right After Becoming Engaged

Congratulations on your engagement! This is such an exciting time in your life and you don’t want to be stressed out BUT you probably are. You’ve been waiting for him to propose and now that he has, everything is coming at you at high-speed. Many of my clients say that they had an idea of what they wanted their wedding to look like but once they got engaged, all of that went out the window. The engagement period really should be a time to celebrate this next step in your relationship, not a time to be consumed with planning and stress. Here are six planning steps to take within the first month of your engagement that will help take away some of that stress.

1. Pick a date or two. Picking a date gives you direction in the beginning. You may have a venue in mind that you’ve always wanted to be married in but they may be booked on your date. If you’re flexible you may find more success in booking a venue.

2. Sit down with your fiancé and put together a budget. You won’t know exactly what things cost immediately but come up with a number that you are comfortable with spending. If the average cost of a wedding in your city is $ 55,000 but you can only spend $ 30,000, that’s your number. Now is not the time to try to keep up with the Joneses.

3. Hire a wedding planner. It kills me when I hear people say that a friend of a friend or their aunt who “does events” is going to handle their wedding. There is so much more to planning a wedding than fluffing your dress right before you walk down the aisle. We’re here to ensure that you make it TO the aisle! Figure out what the most important things are that you are looking for in a planner and while you’re interviewing, keep those them in mind. Don’t hire someone based solely on their Instagram account or their pricing alone. Ask for references and talk to their previous clients. If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, try hiring an amateur. Trust me on this one.

4. Find a venue. Your venue will help you determine your guest list. If your dream venue can only hold 100 people but you have at least 200 that you want to invite, keep looking. This part takes a little bit of time because you have to make appointments to see each venue. Put together a list of 3 that you like and start there.

5. Make a guest list. I always tell my clients to make 3 lists. Your first consists of your family and friends who you would put into your lifeboat if you were on a sinking ship. You have limited space on this lifeboat so make those people count. Second, make a list of the people who you would add onto your boat if there were a few extra seats. These are cousins who you talk to at Christmas time and that’s it. You’d like to see them at your wedding but if they aren’t there, it won’t ruin your day. The final list consists of those coworkers who you see 40 hours a week and commiserate about work with but you wouldn’t pick up the phone to call them after 5:00pm. Remember that you have to feed each guest and that’s where a huge chunk of your budget will go. If you wouldn’t pay $ 100 for their meal, don’t invite them. Making a guest list should be taken that seriously.

6. Designate a wedding-free time-zone. As involved as your fiancé may be, he doesn’t want to talk about wedding details every day for the next year. No one wants to do that, not even you. There really isn’t a need to talk about your wedding every day during your engagement. That’s why you hire a planner to handle all of the little details so that your relationship doesn’t become all about your wedding. Remember that you still have to take care of your relationship.

What It’s Like To Date When You’re A Poet

I’ve been going on a number of first and second dates lately, by way of the Internet (OK Cupid, Match, Hinge, Tinder, JDate, ChirstianMingle, FarmersOnly, etc., etc.). It’s been an altogether interesting experience and has taught me a great deal about courtship in the 21st century, but nothing stands out more for me personally than the hiccupping moment of how I choose to answer the standard first-date question of, “so what do you do?”

“Well, I work as a legal assistant,” I say, “and it’s a perfectly perfunctory day job. Kind co-workers, good benefits, things of this nature. But what I really do” — and sometimes I lean in when I say this part, and take a deep inhaling breath — “is write poetry.”

Silence often ensues.

“I’m a poet,” I’ll say again, lest there exist any confusion.

I’ve come to regard this as the Unicorn Moment, and I call it that because the first few times I made the big reveal, it felt as though I had just said, “I’m a unicorn! Now come, let us ride to the magical land of pixie dust and make-believe!”

The trouble I seem to be experiencing is that, by identifying as a poet, I’m basically declaring that money and/or financial security are not my primary life pursuits. This can be a challenging conversational exchange to have on a date, depending on the goals and interests of the person sitting across from you.

****

“All women are looking for a man to take care of them,” advised a male co-worker of mine during our lunch break a few months ago. This seemed to me a particularly misogynistic assessment of half the world’s population, but I let him continue. “They want someone who is going to make them feel protected, and safe, and secure.”

“And how do women feel about clouds that look like lightning bugs, or honeypots?” I replied, averting my attention away from this inane conversation and towards the cumulus-crowded sky.

We haven’t had lunch since.

****

Of course I can’t fully agree with my co-worker’s assessment. But there may be some truth to his hypothesis, if only he’d have shelved the part where he puts the claim on women alone. After all, isn’t everyone looking for someone to take care of them, man and woman alike? To make them feel safe, and secure? Hell, isn’t that why idiots buy guns?!

****

Sometimes the dates work out well. Painters seem to like me, as do other women with artistic interests (actresses, choreographers, that one girl who made cat videos). I live in New York — Brooklyn, actually (sorry) — and thus, there’s no shortage of interesting, artistically-inclined women to meet, greet, and with whom to exchange pleasantries, witticisms, and possibly late-night (or early-morning) farewell subway kisses.

Sometimes, though, it’s less successful. I had a date recently ask me what my five-year-plan was, which made me feel like I was on a job interview (which, I suppose, all dating is — except instead of gunning for the corner office, you’re trying to land a spot in her bed… and/or heart).

“My five year plan?” I said. “I don’t really have one.” We walked a little further through the park, the energy between us fading to a freeze, when my eyes fell upon a nearby toad, leaping through the grass.

“My life’s like that toad,” I opined, freewheeling and spit-balling as quickly as I could. “I don’t know where it’s all going… but for now, I just want to hold it to the light, and count its many spots.”

“I don’t understand,” she said, face scrunched up, arms crossed.

“Karen,” I said, “you don’t have to understand.”

“My name’s Jennifer,” she replied, and I knew there would be no second date.

****

It would be better if I, too, didn’t care about money as a defining characteristic when it comes to the idea of success, but unfortunately that is not (yet) entirely the case. I was born and raised in the wealthy suburbs of metro Detroit, and so to pursue one’s artistic life, full-throttle, in a medium where financial gains seem an absolute impossibility can appear dubious and downright wrong. It often feels as though I am in a tiny canoe, paddling furiously against the stream of parental and community expectations. It has been many years since I left the world of manicured lawns and two-car garages, and yet those values and ideals seem to have burrowed themselves into my skin. It will, I often believe, take a lifetime to unpack myself of such suburban burdens.

“I don’t know why you’re so neurotic,” said one particular date, Bronx-born, of Dominican descent. “You have a job, it pays your bills, and then you have a passion. What’s the big problem?”

I liked that girl. We saw each other five times.

****

But of course, if I am being honest, I know that no woman (or man, or any gender variation therein) will be able to solve my own internal conundrums of what it means to be a poet against a backdrop of a culture that long ago deemed wealth and prestige as the most important factors to determining “success.”

The work is mine to do, and mine alone. It may seem obvious to you reading this, but it has taken me a few months of new dating — and 33 years of living — to finally recognize that no woman will be able to love and/or accept me unless I am willing to love and/or accept myself, and the entirety of what I am, and what I do, in the world, and for the world.

So that’s what I’m working on.

I seem to like myself best when I regularly read, write, and publish poems.

So that’s what I’m working on.

How to Enjoy the Holidays If You’re Alone

For many of us, the holidays are a time for parties, presents, traditions, and spending time with family and friends. However, this isn’t the case for everyone. Whether by choice or because of work demands, financial issues, or other personal reasons, some people will be alone for the holidays. Regardless of the circumstances, here are four ways you can make your holiday alone a special one.


1. Appreciate what you have.

It’s common to hear people complain about their hectic holiday schedules, the annoying relatives they must visit out of obligation, and the stressful expectations the holidays bring. Solitude is rare for many of us and when we’re lucky enough to get a little time to ourselves, we cherish it. There are some people who would love to be in your position. So try to reframe your perspective — you may realize that being alone isn’t so bad.

2. Tackle a new project.

Whether you decide to paint your room a new color, catch up on your to-do list, or write the first chapter of your novel, it will feel good to set a goal and try to reach it over the holidays. It can even be something as simple as learning a new recipe or cooking yourself a delicious dinner. Whatever the task, enjoy your sense of accomplishment.

3. Pamper yourself.

Treat yourself to a relaxing experience. Take a long, luxurious bubble bath. Listen to your favorite music. Pamper yourself with a new manicure, pedicure, or facial. Take this time to create a peaceful atmosphere to recharge your batteries.

4. Volunteer.

‘Tis the season for giving and it has been scientifically proven that helping others makes us feel good. In fact, nothing is more rewarding than helping others in need. Doing so will also make you feel grateful for all that you do have.

All the hype around the holiday season could lead you to believe that you have to be surrounded by friends and family to have a good time, but being alone doesn’t have to mean being lonely. It’s all about your mindset. Stay positive, and remember that a holiday is just a day — and you can choose to spend it making yourself happy.

The Feeling To Ignore When You’re On An Emotional Roller Coaster (VIDEO)

When we’re feeling stressed, it’s easy to spin out of control and let our emotions take over. Is it your ego talking? Is it fear? Progressive pastor and spiritual thinker Rob Bell, star of the new series “The Rob Bell Show,” explains which feelings to trust — and which to ignore — when you’re on an emotional roller coaster ride.

“One of the most helpful things is to get it outside of you,” Bell tells #OWNSHOW. Ask yourself: What of this is real and what of this is fear over things that may never happen?

Many times, Bell says, we have anxiety over an event that may never transpire. The present, he explains, is what you should put your trust in. “What are the few things that are actually relevant for this moment?” he says.

For example, let’s say you’re feeling incredibly stressed about an upcoming event. “Can I do anything about that?” Bell says to ask yourself. “No, because it’s next Thursday. OK, then I don’t have any space to stress about it.”

If you’re finding it difficult to focus on the present, Bell says the key is to take a moment to step back. “Part of it is just seeing it,” he says. “And almost being an observer — learning to be an observer of your own emotions.”

More from Rob Bell: How to start the healing after you’ve been betrayed.

“The Rob Bell Show” premieres Sunday, December 21 at 7 p.m. ET on OWN.

Touching Mirror Experiment Proves That ‘You’re Enough Just The Way You Are’

Mirrors are devious, lying fixtures that should never be trusted to give an honest opinion.

That’s the general takeaway from “What Do Strangers Think Of You?“, a BuzzFeed video that set individuals in front of a mirror, then asked them to honestly describe themselves. At the same time, and unbeknownst to them, strangers in another room were asked to offer their opinions of the individual.

As is often the case, the people judging themselves were their harshest critics. Even more surprising: What they described as a “flaw” either went unnoticed by the stranger, or was perceived as a strength.

The video is reminiscent of the Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches” campaign, which used a similar tactic to promote the tagline, “You are more beautiful than you think.”

Watch the uplifting video, above.

‘The Americans,’ ‘COMRADES’ Recap: You’re Home Now

Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 2, Episode 1 of FX’s “The Americans,” titled “Comrades.”

We all better get it together, because it feels like “The Americans” has found its rhythm and a fair share of drama. Directorate S might be exposed, Paige is getting a little nosy, and Beeman is way over his head.

Elizabeth convalesced up in the hills somewhere and along with her healing is a newfound, full on feeling for Philip. It’s physical and emotional — not only are they having good (I’m assuming) sex. They’re also agreeing on everything from business decisions, like refunding Stan his Hawaii vacation, to spy blunders, like using Henry in a pinch for a dead drop. Elizabeth seems more willing to compromise a bit, and Philip, as demonstrated in his lone mission with the Afghans, can be a badass, too.

On their first ‘date night’ mission to infiltrate a Lockheed Martin employee, Roy, they work with two old friends. They have a family and a real American life, just like the Jennings. It’s nice to see them as part of something bigger, until they walk into a hotel room and find their friends, along with their daughter, shot in the head. The Jennings gather up what they can to help complete that mission but this means that someone, somewhere knows they exist. And somewhere, Granny is probably on her way back into town.

Having her family threatened leaves Elizabeth vulnerable, like that deer in the headlights in the opening scene, and it’s even worse now that she’s fostered possibly real feelings for Philip. So, plot one and a half.

Plot two: Sanford has been murdered by the Colonel and although Agent Gaad can’t find the budget to investigate, he’s with Beeman in believing that something just isn’t right. We can only hope that Beeman’s sniffing around isn’t such a slow burn as it was last season. And now he has Nina to deal with. While he might have something real to work with when it comes to the Colonel, Nina has let him on a new arrival at the Rezidentura — Oleg, who rocks Rod Stewart as much as the party line. She and Arkady are primed to start feeding Stan some information.

What about Stan and Sandra? Unfortunately, not so in love as the Jennings. Meryl Streep makes an appearance through a cameo of The French Lieutenant’s Woman. He shows a bootleg version to Nina, wanting her to emote; instead she pouts and works him. He pays full ticket price at the movie theater with his wife for the same flick: she cries and tries to tap into his soul. Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching too much “True Detective” and am projecting, but his Madonna/whore issues are starting to get to me.

Wig Count: 3+1 hat = 4

Nina’s Best Poorly Translated Idiom (Working Title) :

Lessons learned: Don’t open closed doors. Paige, in her newfound curiosity, walks in on her parents having sex. And though she was pleased by their welcome home smooch, this is more disturbing. If only because they turn it into a teaching moment about privacy and trust, just before Philips sneers “do we even know if this is the first time she’s checked on us?” It’s a strange balance between wanting to protect his daughter from ending up shot by strangers and trying to protect himself from his daughter.

“The Americans” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.

Relax, You’re Going to Be Criticized

What are you bracing against?

The Practice:
Relax, you’re going to be criticized.

Why?

The title of this practice is a little tongue-in-cheek. What I mean is, most of us — me included — spend time worrying about criticism: past, present, and even future. Yes, try hard, keep agreements, “don’t be evil,” etc. But sooner or later – -usually sooner — someone is going to point out the error in your ways. Often in subtle versions that still have an implicit criticism, such as giving advice, helping or teaching when you don’t really need it, making corrections, comparing you negatively to others, or focusing on the one tile in the mosaic of your actions that’s problematic while staying mum about the 99 other good tiles.

In other words, criticism is unavoidable. Sometimes we take it in with good grace, other times it stings, and sometimes both are true. As profoundly social human animals, it is natural for criticism to sting sometimes. But whatever sting is inherent, we add to this pain with the jabs we give ourselves.

This “bonus pain” — a self-inflicted wound — includes continuing the criticism inside your head long after the other person has moved on. Or pounding o n yourself way out of proportion to what happened; on the highly technical 0-10 Messing Up Silly Scale (MUSS), what you did was a 2 but on the related 0-10 Fiercely Undoing Self-worth Scale (FUSS), you are lambasting yourself at a 5 or even 10: not fair at all. Or ignoring all your many other good qualities — the other 99 tiles — while ruminating about the criticism.

We also jab ourselves with needless pain when we brace ourselves against possible future criticism, or play needlessly small to avoid it. In many cases, the criticism is never going to happen or it’s very unlikely or even if it did happen it would not be a big deal. We tend to transfer into adulthood expectations we acquired as children, or as younger adults. Maybe there was a lot of criticism from someone back then but you’re probably in a different place today. I’ve spent way too much of my life hunkering down or over-preparing to preempt an anticipated shaming attack… that would not occur anyway.

And even if the criticism does come, will it actually be the terrible experience you dread? Usually not. You can roll with it, take what’s useful, form your own conclusions about the person making the criticism, learn and move on. Accepting criticism as inevitable and refusing to live under its shadow will free you up and make you happier.

How?

When criticism, even subtle, comes your way, pause and try to sort it out in your own mind so you’re sure you understand it. Sometimes criticism is narrow and specific, but often it’s vague, general, and has multiple things mixed up in it (e.g., some statements are accurate but others are exaggerated, tone, content, rationale, values). Slow down the interaction so it doesn’t go off the rails. The ancient emotion centers in the brain get about a two second head start over the more recent logical centers, so buy yourself some time for all the resources inside your head to come on line. Meanwhile, shore yourself up by thinking about people who like or love you, and by remembering some of the many ways you do good and are good.

Once you understand the criticism in its parts and aspects, make your own unilateral decision about it. A fair amount of the criticism that comes your way is flat out mistaken. The other person is wrong on the facts or doesn’t understand the larger context. Think of the many scientific theories that were initially scorned but have proven correct over time.

Of the criticism that remains, some is preferences or values disguised as thoughtful suggestions. For example, when you’re driving, suppose the passenger says you should slow down or speed up when actually you are perfectly safe and the other person just likes it slower or faster. Some people value closeness more than others; just because you like more cave time than your partner doesn’t make you cold or rejecting; nor is your partner smothering or controlling; it’s just a difference in values: grounds for inquiry, compassion, and negotiation, but not criticism.

Another chunk of criticism coming at you is thoughtful suggestions disguised as moral fault finding; now your passenger says you should be ashamed of yourself for endangering others when in fact all you need to do is back off another couple of car lengths from the car in front of you on the freeway; you’re not reckless but could be more skillful.

Then there is that which is worthy of healthy remorse. It’s up to you to decide what this part is. Feel what’s appropriate, learn the lesson, make amends if they’re called for, know that you’ve done what you could, ask yourself how much remorse or shame you’d want a friend to bear who did whatever you did, and then see if you can ask no more or less from yourself.

Knowing that you can handle criticism in these ways, let yourself be more open to it. Don’t stonewall or intimidate others who have a criticism for you; then it just festers or bursts out in other ways.

But also don’t walk on eggshells to avoid trouble (unless you’re in a dangerous situation, which is a different sort of problem) or obsess or over-plan to make sure you make no mistakes. A close friend is an extremely successful professor at a top-of-the-food-chain elite university, and I asked him once what led to his success. He said that while his colleagues/competitors were perfecting their one paper, he was finishing three of his own; one of these would be rejected for publication, one would come back with corrections he could make, and one would be accepted immediately; then when the inevitable criticisms did come down the road, he’d already moved on to his next three papers.

Mostly, just recognize that criticism in its various forms and flavors (and smells) is a fact of life. So be it. Our lives and this world have bigger problems, and much bigger opportunities. Time to live more bravely and freely.

The 3 Most Important Questions You Could Ask Yourself When You’re Stressed

Do you secretly thrive on stress?

While none of us would like to openly admit it, we sometimes indulge in the feelings that come from a tense situation. Whether it’s pushing our work back until we’re on the brink of a deadline or even just immersing ourselves in a friend’s personal drama — we all get a motivating energy from the adrenaline-pumping emotions that come with a high-risk situation.

While research has proven that a little stress may actually be a good thing, like anything else, too much of it can have its damaging effects. Heidi Hanna, a fellow at the American Institute of Stress and the author of Stressaholic: 5 Steps to Transform Your Relationship with Stress, says that many of us even can form a stress addiction. “When it comes to stress, there’s a chemical response happening in the brain that keeps us amped up and we become reliant on that stimulation,” Hanna tells The Huffington Post. “It can become like any other addiction. We are hardwired to be overstimulated.”

So how do we move beyond our natural tendency to feed into stress? When it comes to managing its energy, whether it’s an overwhelming negative or a little motivational, there are simple coping mechanisms we can employ so our brains stay flexible during times of trepidation. Below find three questions Hanna suggests asking yourself when you’re feeling stressed in order to get yourself back on track.

1. “Is this stress I’m feeling mine or someone else’s?”

At the first signs of stress, we should identify the source of the energy right away, Hanna says. Are you stressed because of your own situation or is that energy really coming from somewhere else? By possessing an awareness of the source, we’re able to target how to handle it. “It’s important to understand that we do pick up stress from other people because the brain is so sensitive to our environment,” she explains. “We notice someone’s breath rates or that they’re talking really quickly and we pick that up and mirror that.”

2. “Am I able to help?”

Once you’ve identified where the stress is coming from, the next way to handle it is to realistically asses whether or not you’re able to help or change the situation. If the negative energy is a result of other people and you’re suffering from secondhand stress, Hanna says you need to realize there is only so much you can feasibly do in order to dissolve it.

That goes for your own stress and the stress caused by others. “Having a go-to trick to manage stress is common sense but it’s not always common practice,” she advises. “We’d all love to help everybody but if we’re feeling drained, it’s just not always possible. It’s important at the first sign of stress that you have go-to strategies, like practicing gratitude. It allows your brain to stay more flexible so you can think more positively.”

3. “What boundaries do I need to establish?”

When dealing with stress, particularly in the workplace, Hanna suggests establishing your own sacred spaces or breaks. Going for a walk, taking a few minutes for some breathing exercises or even just grabbing a coffee can allow you to remove yourself from the situation and help you avoid expanding your stressful thoughts. “Be protective of your boundaries. That recovery time is just as important as any other appointment or meeting you schedule throughout your day,” she explains.

Overall, when it comes to overcoming your attraction to stressful energy, Hanna says it’s all about training yourself just as you would for any other routine or habit. “Think of relaxation training like training any other muscle in the gym,” she advises. “Most of us have unknowingly trained ourselves to be dependent on stress and now is the time to change that.”

Lea Michele Releases Song, ‘You’re Mine,’ For Cory Monteith (AUDIO)

Lea Michele has released a moving new song dedicated to her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

The “Glee” star said the song had been one of Monteith’s favorites before his death last year of a drug overdose at the age of 31.

On it, Michele sings:

And I told you all my dreams and fears
And you looked at me and your eyes filled with tears
And you said those three words I’d been waiting for
You became a part of me, yeah

“It makes me so happy, this song. It makes me think so much of Cory,” she told Elle in November. “It was ours. When I think of him, I play this.”

The song will be featured on Michele’s new album, “Louder,” which drops on March 4. But on Monday, she took to Twitter to tell fans they could listen to it now.

“Louder” also contains a song called “Cannonball” that Michele said helped her cope with Monteith’s death, MTV News reported last December. Another tune, “If You Say So,” refers to the last words she heard from him.

“It’s a very personal and it’s a very intense song for me,” she told MTV News.

Ironically, “You’re Mine” almost didn’t make the album. Michele told Elle that when the label asked if she wanted to add anything else to the album, she realized she had to include the song.

“I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,'” she said.

You’re Married. Now What? How to Say ‘I Do’ to a Solid Financial Future Together

“I do.”

Remember when you spoke those words at your wedding? Perhaps it was in front of family and friends. Or maybe it was just the two of you on a beach or in front of a justice of the peace.

Do you recall the tears streaming down your face as you looked into your partner’s eyes, knowing that this was the person you’d committed to spend the rest of your life with, until death you do part?

At that moment, you probably weren’t thinking about savings and checking accounts, stocks and other investments or credit scores. You were thinking, “This is the happiest day of my life.”

Well, not so fast.

While being married has put you in a state of bliss, you need to come down off of your cloud for a minute and have a conversation with your partner about finances. In fact, I’d love to help you and your partner secure a solid and happy financial future together, now and forever. Just follow these tips.

How to Say “I Do” to a Solid Financial Future Together

1. Review bank accounts, credit scores and credit card statements.

Gather your bank statements, credit scores and credit card statements and compare notes. How much money do the both of you have? What are your credit scores? What are your credit card balances? Review all of this information. And if one of you has a lower credit score than the other, it’s a good idea to create a plan to raise the credit score. How? First, stop using your credit cards! Second, double your monthly payments, if you can. It’s important that you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to finances.

2. Create a monthly budget, and stick to it.

Creating a budget is super easy. You can either grab a pen and paper or use a software program. You’ll want to include the following:

  • Rent/mortgage
  • Insurance: car, home and/or renters
  • Expenses: utilities (gas, electric and water and sewer) and phone
  • Car payment (if any)
  • Grocery
  • Child support (if any)
  • Child’s school (if any)
  • Adult education
  • Entertainment
  • Cable (or another provider)
  • Internet
  • Cell/mobile phone
  • Other

After you’ve created your budget, review it together and make necessary adjustments. See where you can cut back. If you can’t adjust the figures, make sure you stick to your monthly budget, no matter what.

3. Review investment portfolios monthly.

If you have investment portfolios, sit down with your financial advisor/manager and discuss how you can make changes to increase your investments and/or diversify. For example, if you’ve been playing it safe, you may want to look into more aggressive stocks. On the flip side, if you’ve been too aggressive, you may want to rethink your strategy and be more conservative. Your financial manager will help you choose the best investment options.

4. Compare salaries and know when to ask for a raise.

How much do you make? If you’ve been working your way up the company ladder and earn a healthy salary, congratulations! But if you’ve been working and haven’t received a raise or don’t think you’ve received a raise that is worthy of you and your work, you may want to approach your boss and ask for a raise. While this may scare you, it can be done — the right way. Do not be confrontational. Point out your contributions and market value. If your boss pushes back, gently remind him/her of your results. If the answer is “No,” either accept it or look for another job.

5. Choose a monthly amount to deposit into a separate savings account.

Now, more than ever, it is important to have an emergency fund. Why? Because you don’t know what could happen now or in the future. You or your partner could get laid off from work, permanently lose your job, need to take care of an aging parent or sick child, or experience another life-altering event. Establishing a monthly amount to be deposited into a savings account that is not to be touched is a must. You may not want to do it, but you need to do this, now.

6. Live within your means.

Your mom and dad may have told you to live within your means. Did you listen? If not, it’s time to start listening. Whenever you’re about to purchase something, ask, “Do I need or want this?” If you don’t need (fill in the blank), why do you want it? Make sure you have a good answer. If you don’t need (fill in the blank), don’t buy it. Why? Because you may have buyer’s remorse or you could find a better deal at another store or online; keep your options open.

7. Start investing.

If you don’t have an investment portfolio, you and your partner may want to hire a financial advisor. It’s never too late to invest. Here’s a tip: Go through your home and look at the products you bought. Find the company and/or brand name and conduct an online search to see if they’re on the NYSE or NASDAQ. Research, i.e. has the stock gone up or down? Ask your financial advisor about the fluidity (money flows, hardly any debt) of the companies. If the companies are solid, consider purchasing their stock. You may want to look into real estate investing. However, you must be ready and prepared to be a landlord. You may consider “fixing and flipping” homes, but this takes some skill. Plus, when you start tearing down walls, you may find problems like faulty electrical work that you didn’t anticipate. Consult a professional real estate investor before you buy an investment property. But whatever you do, start investing, now.

8. Get a side job or start a business.

Okay, so you and your partner work 40 or more hours per week and may not have time for a side job. However, you can earn extra money doing what you love. For example, do you like to bake? Consider opening an online cupcake business. You could specialize in gluten-free and vegan cupcakes or offer customers specific cupcakes, e.g. red velvet and chocolate. Maybe your partner is a fantastic artist. He/she could create paintings and sell them online. You may find that both you and your partner have a knack for running your own business. You could eventually quit your day jobs.

9. Sell your stuff.

Now that you’re married, go through all of your stuff and get rid of what you haven’t used in a year or more. Toss out anything that is worn out, but sell everything that is gently used. Why? Because you can earn extra money and deposit it into your emergency savings account; every little bit helps.

10. Keep the lines of communication open.

Most important is to keep communicating with one another. Do not shut down if your partner makes a mistake, i.e. charges a pair of $ 500 shoes. Sure, you may not be happy about it, but it’s not the end of the world. Calmly speak about the importance of creating a solid financial future together. If you need help, seek counseling from a marriage or financial counselor or both. Whatever you do, do not throw your marriage away at the first bump you have. It won’t be 100 percent perfect all of the time. And remember: Sometimes, marriage isn’t like a merry-go-round; it’s more like a roller coaster. And if you think about it, what’s more fun? A ride that goes around and around or one that’s filled with thrills and chills?

To secure a solid financial future, you and your partner need to be willing to be honest about finances and hopefully were on the same page before you got married.

If you save $ 100, a month that’s $ 1,200 a year plus some interest; multiply that by two years and that’s $ 2,400 with some interest. After a few years, you could take some of the money, invest it and triple, maybe even quadruple your investment. Your financial manager can assist you with this.

Having a solid financial future together is closer to possible than you think.

5 Good Reasons To Get Married While You’re Young, According To Research

The average age for Americans getting married has reached a historic high — 27 for women and 29 for men — a jump from the 1990 average marrying age of 23 for women and 26 for men.

While delaying marriage has advantages — a lower divorce rate, higher income for women and fewer and less intense arguments between spouses — studies show there also may be benefits to tying the knot before age 30. (However, there is such a thing as marrying too young. Research shows that marriages beginning when a woman is 18 are twice as likely to end in divorce as those beginning when she is 22.)

Below are five reasons to get married in your 20s.

1. It could make you happier.
According to the National Marriage Project’s 2013 “Knot Yet” report, the highest percentage of people ages 20 to 28 who consider themselves “highly satisfied” with their lives are married, as opposed to single or cohabiting. What’s more, the largest number of women who described their marriage as “very happy” tied the knot when they were 24 to 26. A 2010 study found that “the greatest indicated likelihood of being in an intact marriage of the highest quality is among those who married at ages 22–25.”

2. You’ll make more money (at least if you’re a man).
An analysis of American Community Survey data from 2008 to 2010 revealed that among men in their mid-30s, those who married in their 20s had the highest levels of personal income. Economists have found, in general, that married men earn more than single men — even when you control for other factors like age and education.

3. You’ll have more sex.
Couples who marry in their 20s tend to have more frequent sex than those who marry later. In a 2011 paper, Dana Rotz of Harvard University wrote that “a four year increase in age at marriage is associated with a couple having sex about one time less per month.” What’s more, married people as a whole have more sex than their single counterparts. The sooner you marry, the more time you’ll be spending between the sheets.

4. You’ll drink less alcohol.
A 2012 study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior found that married and engaged young adults reported lower frequency of drunkenness than those who are not in a serious romantic relationship. “Marriage and engagement likely carry with them a heightened sense of responsibility and obligation and a less active social calendar, which leads to less drunkenness,” the study’s authors wrote. Laying off alcohol has many health benefits, including weight loss, better sleep, better skin and a reduced risk of some cancers.

5. There’s nothing to be gained from waiting — if you think you’re ready.
We certainly aren’t advocating a rush to the altar, but if you feel like you’re prepared for that next step, go for it. Research says there’s no advantage to delaying marriage just for the sake of delaying it. A 2010 study by sociologists Norval Glenn and Jeremy Uecker states that “A 25-year-old person who meets an excellent marriage prospect would be ill-advised to pass up that opportunity only because he/she feels not yet at the ideal age for marriage. Furthermore, delaying marriage beyond the mid-twenties will lead to the loss during a portion of young adulthood of any emotional and health benefits that a good marriage would bring.”
