Emotional Intelligence


I was reminded this Christmas, as always, that there are worse things to be than single. I went on a cruise in mid-December, a tradition, and there I saw many couples who didn't seem to happy together, and a few that were plain-out miserable.

I ate out at lovely restaurants during the month and saw plenty of couples, some of whom evidence real animosity toward one another.

Have you observed the same thing? This is kind of an EQ thing, a reality-testing thing. We "see" what we're "looking for." One big landmark test in the field of psychology was proving that depressed people scan for sadness, misery, violence, and grief. In a newspaper, for instance, they'll see the obits, and the riot headline. Someone in a happier state might see the side bar on the front page about a rescued cat.

So if you're seeing only ONE THING when you're out with people, think it over. It can be a big clue as to your inner feelings. If you go to a restaurant and see all the happy couples (which enforce your feelings of loneliness), while there are about as many tables around you with miserable married couples, groups of women, groups of men ... try and broaden the picture so you can broaden your outlook.

DRY SKIN CAN BE A REAL PROBLEM IN THE WINTER. Several people have mentioned to me itching and scratchy. Of course I recommend ARBONNE PRODUCTS. They carry a full line of nutraceuticals to treat this condition internally; skin care products for you AND YOUR BABY (ARBONNE BABY PRODUCTS HERE), cosmetics that won't make things, worse, lotions, and I'm sure I've left some things out, there's just so much there for you.

Come shop with me online at My Arbonne. The ingredients are pure and natural, and will leave your skin feeling like avocado and rose petals.

Phillipa who's in my sales group says one of her clients bought the NutriMin system** and and footcare products (pampermint) and says her feet are not "soft as a baby's bottom.

BTW, 60,000 people joined Arbonne to buy products last month. Become a consultant and help supply to the tremendous demand.

**It's smart to buy the whole system, like for anti-aging, acne, baby, etc. Why" Because first of all they're designed (Swiss engineered, remember?) to work together in synergy. Secondly, you get a big discount. Then put it on auto-ship and you REALLY get a big discount. Add to that being a consultant, and it could be half-price. Not sure but I'll be glad to check it out for you.
