Online Dating Lesson

Posted by Maridel Bowes on Wednesday, May 25, 2011, In : Women at midlife 

I’m happy. I’m single. I’m happy I’m single. (Get ready, the “but” isn’t far behind—or instead, let’s make that an “and.”) AND after an adult lifetime of long-term partnerships, there’s a part of me that asks, “Is there someone else out there?” Or, more importantly, “Is there someone in there—someone inside me who is willing to enrich and complicate my current level of contentment?”  I have to admit that despite that satisfaction, I’ve been attracted to the...

The Center of Your Own Universe

Posted by Maridel Bowes on Thursday, May 19, 2011, In : Spiritual therapy 

You never know when it will wash over, under or around you…that delicious swell of feeling like you are at the center of your own universe.

Been That, Done There

Posted by Maridel Bowes on Thursday, May 5, 2011, In : Spiritual counseling 

Didn’t you get a wee bit worn out by the pronouncement, “Been there, done that!” Honestly, it was like an epidemic—people looking for the opportunity to pounce on a suggestion, story, or advice with this hale and hearty proclamation. In all fairness, it was also sometimes used to sympathize as well, acknowledging, “Hey, I know what you’re dealing with—I’ve been there (and done that). It was punchy, I have to admit, but it never caught on with my idiomatic-rejecting brain. (Aft...
