May Have to Burn That Bridge

Do you have someone in your life that's been around for a long time and they constantly bring you grief? Do they make remarks to belittle you? Do they avoid you when things are going well for you? Do you have to self-talk yourself back to normal after spending time with them? Then it's time to let them go. 

Look, it's hard to intentionally burn a bridge, especially when it comes to people who've been in your life for many years. But if most of your interactions with them are leaving you feeling down, angry, small, or hurt, then what's the point? They're toxic and you don't need to have them around.

We get bogged down with relationships resulting from a sense of obligation. "Well she's my cousin", or "he's been my friend since high school", is what you find yourself saying when people question why you've continued the toxic relationship. Then you start to wonder why but it's usually after finally realizing that you have value and that your uniqueness is your gold. 

You'll question the existence of certain people in your life when you start giving your self the love it deserves. I can tell you to let the bad ones go but it is not my place to do that, it's yours. You'll say goodbye in your own time. You'll burn the bridges that you find necessary to burn. Then you'll only be surrounded by people who help you rise.

Love yourself,

Wendy (a.k.a. The Wendenator)

My Secret? Olay Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream

I've always looked pretty young for my age but soon after my 40th birthday, I noticed that my skin was changing. I was losing my glow. I was dealing with little random dry patches, a very oily T-zone and mini acne breakouts that I hadn't seen since my teens. I couldn't seem to link these new symptoms to a change in my diet or a new product I was using. Then it hit me, the change my skin was going through was very normal for women over 40.

A lot of women in their 40's experience dryness, an oilier T-zone, and a return of acne. These symptoms are usually the effect of hormonal changes related to premenopause and menopause. Stress and having a sweet tooth can help to bring on adult acne too. I've been using Olay's Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream for a while and it works for me. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and has reduced the acne breakouts to a minimum. It's exactly what my skin needs and has become a regular item in my stash of skin …
