Jiwoongs Message For His Sister Taeyeon
A post that was written at some point in the past by the older brother of Girls' Generation member Taeyeon has drawn attention.

The post entitled "Taeyeon's Older Brother's Photo, Handsome Gentleman" was posted on an online community site's message board along with photos.

In the photos, Taeyeon's elder brother Kim Jiwoong, who is 25 years old, is shown to have very distinct facial features and shows a cuteness similar to his sister. A message was also left for Taeyeon.

He wrote a heartwarming message that read, "Ever since I got into middle school, you were already mature and, at least in thought, you were like the eldest sister of the house, determined and professional. Even when you were living far away on your own, you always had a stoic and level-headed mindset that always made me bow my head to you (editors note: in respect)."

He continued, "My confidence in you is at 200%. You are my little sister, so I believe that you will do well. Your family is always standing by your side. I love you."

Netizens commented, "Taeyeon's brother has a soft spot for his little sister. I am jealous of Taeyeon for having such a brother and of Jiwoong for having such a sister," and "As expected, Taeyeon has always been a well-mannered girl from the start. I am very jealous of the siblings' relationship."

Marriage Myths Part 5

Marriage Myths Part 5
Welcome to Marriage Myth #5! As you read the Relationship Stages Myths article and read on here, you might consider talking with the people in your life about what marriage means. What do you believe is the purpose or point of marriage? This kind of conversation can be enlightening. While I talk to my spouse about our beliefs about marriage, our connection grows, our patience increases and our love deepens. Give it a shot and please let me know how it goes! (PS - What did you and your spouse discover about your endorsement or rejection of Myth #4?)


Though I'm aware that this idea is presented as a myth, I still believe that more communication is better. I always will. It may not be wise to do so, but I often buy into it when couples boast: "We don't have any secrets from each other." They then gaze longingly into one another's eyes almost as if to prove that the very corners of their souls are completely open and available to each other. I'm easily bewitched by the closeness that transparency appears to bring.

Even so, my young marriage continues to teach me that some types of communication may not be all that helpful. I now know that communication works best when it is purposeful. I've learned that timing is important. My husband continues to remind me that thought should be given to what I can reasonably expect in response to my comments.

For example, it's pretty difficult for me to relate to my father-in-law. We have very little in common. He tends to be a bit bold in his presentation and I'm a little more reserved. More often than not, I'm nervous and guarded when we are together. If I hope for my husband to empathize with my insecurities around my father-in-law, I'm not likely to get it by stating: "Your dad is so abrasive. He is so loud and he always dominates the conversation." I may believe those things to be true, but my saying so could easily hurt my husband. He loves his dad. It's an impossible situation for him to be caught between defending his dad and supporting his wife. Even if my husband isn't offended by my comment, he'll likely be confused about what I want him to do about it. I may find more success in choosing a quiet, private moment when I can solicit my husband's help with specific strategies to manage my anxiety when I'm with his family.

There's also something to be said for keeping the mystery alive in marriage. I may have mentioned that my husband and I were blessed with a new baby boy just under six months ago. Try though I might, I've not yet regained my pre-pregnancy shape. My added padding provides a source of considerable insecurity for me. My husband doesn't seem to see it. Even if he does notice my little bit extra, he certainly doesn't obsess over it the way I do. I could choose to involve my husband in my obsession. I could demand that he stand with me next to the mirror and scrutinize my shrinking (or not) belly. I could seek his support in measuring the fade factor of my stretch marks. Though my misery may love his company, I don't know how much will be gained by such sharing. For one thing, my poor husband is in a lose-lose. If he gives me an accurate assessment of my belly, I may take offense. If he chooses the safer, complimentary route, I will probably dismiss his comments. Instead, it may be in the best interest of our relationship for me to continue on with my early dating efforts towards putting my best face forward. Marriages work best if spouses continue to date. Dating tends to be more successful when compliments are accepted and some insecurities (like my extra pound or two) are left to my blog.

Monthly Horoscope Taurus February 2015

This astrological aspect increases your sensuous and affectionate energy. Thus, you will be impelled to express your emotions spontaneously, direct and on occasions a bit sharp. In love it is not only necessary to want much, but also to want well, therefore it is recommendable to moderate and soothe your emotional reactions. Don't forget that in the relationship of a couple the aesthetic details, refinement and good taste is also important. Declare your love for your companion in a sweet, respectful and comprehensive way, as too much passion could bring jealousy. Passionate love is one thing and another very different thing is loving passionately, and it is necessary to establish a boundary between one and the other. Not going directly to the point will be a little more romantic, gallant, amiable and genteel.

If you are not involved with anyone, this could be a time when you are enamored quickly and may approach someone that is attractive to you, but you may do it in a daring or untimely way. If you don't moderate your impulse, it is very probable that you may be rejected, since others will see you a bit sharp or discourteous.

Indian Brides Victims Of Fake Grooms
From Troy Media:An investigative team from the Calgary Herald travelled to India recently to report that, in the province of Punjab alone, it is conservatively estimated that over 30,000 young women, some as young as 16 to18, have been defrauded and abandoned by fraudulent grooms from Canada.The exploitation of these young women is never a one-man operation; typically it involves a whole kinship network. The Herald reported that abandoned brides now constitute an epidemic and concluded that they are victims of "organized crime"Fraudulent grooms make stringent demands of enormous dowries, proof of a woman's youth and virginal status, and a swift passage from agreement to marriage. Then, shortly after the wedding ceremony and a brief honeymoon, the fraudulent grooms beat a hasty exit from India back to Canada, dowry in hand.


Nlp Swish Pattern Technique

Nlp Swish Pattern Technique
The swish pattern is a powerful NLP technique that enables you to break an automatic thought or behaviour pattern and replace them with a more resourceful one. The swish pattern can be used for problems such as fear of public speaking, anger management, smoking cessation, nervousness, lack of self-confidence and phobias.


1. Recognize the cue image of the behaviour that you wish to change. Ask yourself what occurs just before this unwanted state begins, what image or scene come to your mind? Remember to think in terms of submodalities to get a detailed sense of the scene.

2. Select a replacement image. You should create an image of how you will be or want to be after changing the unwanted behaviour. Enhance the qualities such as submodalities of the scene.

3. Now place the replacement image in the corner or behind the cue image of unwanted behaviour in your mind. The replacement image or scene should be in small size compared to the cue image of unwanted behaviour.

4. Now swish the two images. You should make both the images change simultaneously in your mind with increase in speed. When you swish have the cue image of unwanted behaviour becoming smaller and shot off into a distance, at the same time have the replacement image (desired behaviour) come closer and larger by completely replacing the image of undesired behaviour. Repeat the process until you feel the scene of desired behaviour is totally replaced the image of unwanted behaviour.

5. Repeat this swish five to seven times. Remember to apply break state during each swish.

6. Now enhance the submodalities of the replaced image.

7. Do a test. Now try to think of the unwanted behaviour again. I am sure you will find hard or impossible to act it out, you should actually think on how to do it, it will not be the same automatic response as it used to be.

HOW TO QUIT SMOKING USING THE SWISH PATTERN:1. Identify the cue image that precedes you to smoking, the image that triggers you to the habit is called cue image. The image may be your hand going to cigarette, seeing yourself with cigarette or seeing a cigarette whatever it comes in your mind.

2. Now develop a powerful replacement image. It can be an image of you are standing confident that you had quit smoking or just a quit smoking picture, just think of an image that makes you feel that you will quit smoking.

3. Place the replacement image and apply swish as mentioned above.

4. Repeat the process every time you feel urge to go for a cigarette.

Why He Lies Reviews What Is Why He Lies
There are always those moments when a woman is attracted to a man but for some reason fails to approach him. Either there are confusions that cloud her mind and complicate her ability to decide or she may have been conditioned to react a certain way thereby missing out on her true impulses. The hesitation on approaching someone who attracts them comes from another fact. Because they don't know how he will react and if he will accept dating them or not.

They might have perceptions of how it does but those are really half-baked ideas that arise mostly from heresy or having gleaned what they may have seen earlier. This results in a certain amount of insecurity in forging a new relationship. The good news though is that Michael Fiore, a very well known online dating coach, has finally come up with a solution that will forever change the way women look at men. These work as a major hurdle in meeting and dating the right kind of men.

A guru of online dating, Michael Fiore seems to have analysed the core issues in the forging of these sensitive and fragile new relationships. The system called "Why He Lies" helps women get into a man's world through his thoughts and what he actually thinks about women. A part of the program that seems to have made quite a ripple is called-The Secret Survey, which allows women to listen and see what men actually talk about. The analyses not only prepares women to understand the quiet signals and body language of men better, it also promotes a certain amount of clarity about the otherwise assumed behavior of men, and the rigid interpretation women form about them.

The freedom to watch a man as his true self is in itself unique and an eye-opener which helps demolish the old notions and prepare women to be far more confident and forthcoming around men. Well -formatted and easy to follow tips and tricks suggested by Michael Fiore have been used successfully by many women. The course is an eye opener because it lets women know exactly what men think in different daily situations. With a better understanding in what regards their behavior and general attitude, any woman out there will be able to instantly see improvements in her interaction with men and in her relationship, if she already has one, after applying the tips and tricks they are taught by Michael in Why He Lies.

Michael Fiore has also been the guest of many high profile TV shows and from there, he has managed to reach out to a wider audience to which he has revealed some of his best tricks on how to understand men better and how to have an even more fruitful relationship with them. The good news about the course is that Michael teaches in a lesson by lesson format, so women will never have to be worried about getting overwhelmed with new findings. In total, Michael teaches 2 lessons per week, so no woman will ever be overloaded with info she cannot fully understand and apply in her every day interactions with men.

With that being said, every woman who would like to learn more about men and also improve her relationship with the guy she already is, will certainly benefit from many advantages if they were to have some useful tips revealed, tips which can be applied immediately regardless of the personality of the man they are dating. With such a powerful insight on men, no woman will ever have to wonder what goes on through her date's mind and whether it would or would not be a good idea to take the relationship one step further.


Beyond The Grave Early Review

Beyond The Grave Early Review

"I can't move forward with my life until I know my demons are confined to the past..."

"Being Charlotte Silver, the daughter of famous paranormal investigators, means my life isn't like that of other teenage girls. Especially after what happened to my parents. Things changed. I missed prom and deferred my big college plans. But I still have my boyfriend, Noah. He's everything I could want-if I can figure out what's up with him. Suddenly Noah is secretive."

"I fear it has something to do with what happened to us three months ago. The bruise Noah suffered during a paranormal attack has never completely faded. Now I've learned Noah is researching demons. And when he disappears, it's up to me to find him-before something else does."

Charlotte just wants to move on with her life, but she can't until she knows that The Watcher is gone for good. She's put her life and future on hold in order to try and hold things together in the aftermath of his attack. She wants to be there for her father as they cling to hope for her mother's recovery, but things aren't looking good. The only thing she can count on is Noah, or so she thought. Something is different about him, and she isn't sure what is going on. All she knows is that he's suddenly being very secretive and not where he says he will be. She has the nagging feeling it has something to do with the Watcher's attack on him as the bruises never faded. Charlotte is going to have to use every bit of strength she has left to keep her family and her heart from falling apart completely as the final showdown looms just around the corner.

Charlotte was a little too clueless for my tastes at times, especially when it came to Noah. Perhaps she was just trying not to see what was in front of her because she didn't want to believe anything was wrong with him. I guess it was just a really bad case of denial, but it struck me as a little immature. She also hadn't learned from her past mistakes of not telling her family everything from the start. Considering the fact that her mother probably wouldn't be in a coma right now if she had come clean immediately I found her continued secrecy to be a little baffling. She self-justified this by saying that she didn't want to worry anyone or cause more stress, but honestly that was a cop out to avoid confrontation.

I was a little frustrated that we didn't get to see Charlotte and Noah together very much. I guess I shouldn't be surprised after reading the synopsis, but it took so long for them to finally get together in the previous books that I was really looking forward their relationship in Beyond the Grave. I just feel that there is so much potential between them and I would have loved to have seen their relationship really grow. I was really happy with the addition of a new character named Michael as he really added something great to the book. Also it was nice to see another side of Bliss. I always thought there was much more to her than met the eye, even though she had previously spent every interaction with Charlotte being nasty.

Beyond the Grave had a slow start but eventually picked up. I felt things ended rather well, and definitely left me with a sense of satisfaction. I think the best part about this series was watching all of the characters grow, especially when it came to their beliefs in the paranormal and how those perceptions changed. Some came to belief rather easily and others were extremely stubborn to almost the bitter end, which made for a pretty diversified cast of characters, in turn making the books even more enjoyable. Now that this series is complete, I'll definitely be on the lookout for future books by Mara Purnhagen as I think she is a very talent author. Fans of the previous two installments won't be disappointed in Beyond the Grave as it is a very good tie up to a great paranormal YA series.
