as I know I have presented some pretty stunning news: In
short,
you get to move
to the head of the line
. So many women
think that in putting themselves first, they are neglecting their
motherly or wifely duties. My question is: Who defined these
so-called duties anyway? Were they self-imposed, conditioned
from your upbringing, or forced upon you by your spouse? It’s
time to trade in the “old- clunker” thinking patterns of the past

does not have to be a trip to the North Pole, complete with
icebergs and blistering weather, (unless you secretly desire
living the life of an Eskimo, that is.) This should be an excit-
ing and fun adventure, something to look forward to and be
appreciated. You are the princess preparing for the gala, and
your castle is representative of your perfect life and fulfilling
