Hi, Guys.
Being a hero to the woman in your life is much simpler than you probably think, but it’s ever bit as powerful to her as this song implies. I’ll post more detailed information for you soon!
Warmly, Dr. Debi Smith

Where have all the good men gone
and where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise Hercules
to fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight
upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn
and dream of what I need.

I need a hero.
I’m holding out for a hero
’til the end of the night.
He’s gotta be strong
and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.

I need a hero.
I’m holding out for a hero
’til the morning light.
He’s gotta be sure
and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
larger than life.

Somewhere after midnight
in my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
there’s someone reaching back for me.
Racing on the thunder
rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman
to sweep me off my feet.

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear there is someone somewhere
watching me.

Through the wind
and the chill and the rain
and the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
like fire in my blood.

I need a hero.
I’m holding out for a hero
’til the end of the night.
He’s gotta be strong
and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.

I need a hero.
I’m holding out for a hero
’til the morning light.
and He’s gotta be sure
and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life.

Holding Out for a Hero written by Steinman and Dean Pitchford, performed by Bonnie Tyler

Enjoy the Difference! June 8, 2011

Men and women are alike in so many ways. Both have thoughts, feelings, and actions. Both have a will and a purpose. Both need food, water, shelter, and love.

So why do we have so much trouble getting along with each other? We have a tendency to discount the differences between us, rather than appreciate and enjoy the differences.

For example, men are more action-oriented, especially when it comes to their feelings. Despite popular female opinions, men are very in touch with their feelings … both physically and emotionally. However, instead of talking or analyzing, they take action.

For example, if a woman is busy with a project and suddenly realizes that she’s hungry, she’ll often have a complete dialogue within herself about whether she should eat something, what she should eat, and the possible consequences of her choices.

The guy just goes to the fridge, takes out some food, and eats it.

If someone treats a woman poorly, she often wonders what she’s done to incite such a response and what she can do to rectify the situation.

The guy just figures the other person is having a bad day or is a jerk in general. He doesn’t take it personally. It just is what it is. If he doesn’t like it, he will avoid contact as much as possible. For him, it’s a no-brainer.

Can you appreciate that these are different – and equally valid – ways of responding to physical or emotional feelings? If so, you’re on your way to enjoying the difference!
