He Is So Lavish with His Gifts, I Love Him Already!

Hello Beautiful,

It’s nice to have someone treat you like a queen and buy you presents but, my dear you need to pay attention to some somethings before you fall head over heels.

This can be tough especially if you have been single and searching for a while and then you meet this guy who blinds you with attention.

You might say Rose, 

“He loves me a lot, I have never had someone treat me like this

before and he REALLY CARES FOR ME!”  

“He is always buying very expensive gifts when I am with him and he knows how to treat me like a queen. These gifts are given way too early in the relationship……….

My dear, there is a thin line between love bombing and the emotional displays of someone who is genuinely in love. This is the reason why love bombing is so hard to detect.

The relationship usually starts off as a fairy tale, but it always ends in disaster and you wonder why!

Love bombing is one of the most common techniques narcissists and sociopaths use to lure you in, gain power and maintain control over their victims.

Although signs of love bombing are not easily recognizable, however, they will differ from real love displays in some ways.

Below is a link to the document that has the 7 things you need to watch for to recognize that you are being love bombed. in this document, I talk about the 7 SIGNS TO WATCH OUT FOR, IF IT’S REAL LOVE OR ITS LOVE BOMBING.

Many women are being fooled by being given lavish gifts and they end up with a guy that will constantly remind them of the things he has done for them or get abused by these men.

The will tell you what you want to her all the time, his messages are rehearsed.

Hope this helps you in your dating journey.



Clutter… Why are you keeping it?

Clutter… Why are you keeping it?

We all struggle at one point or another with feeling like our home isn’t organized and most of the time that is due to the clutter that we collect over time. 

I believe that some of the things you are keeping (and anyone else you live with) are not even that valuable to you. 

What’s the reason we keep so much stuff?

We often find it’s much easier to make up reasons/excuses as to why you should keep those items, but in reality you are just delaying making a decision about saying goodbye to it. 

A lot of the time we create emotional attachments with objects and yes memories are important but our memories are not objects or clutter. 

You don’t have to get rid of everything but try removing a few items at a time. Keep the special items and put them on display where you can actually enjoy them.

Most of the time when something takes a lot of mental work to decide if you should keep it or not, the chances are it’s not really important to you and you won’t miss it if you remove it from your house. 

The people that fill our home, the friends, the family and the guests are the ones who truly make your home special. Not the objects. 

The Five Ways to Wellbeing

The Five Ways to Wellbeing

The state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous.” – Merriam-Webster Definition. 

Wellbeing isn’t just about not having a disease but it’s a combination of your emotional, mental and physical well being. Our well being is linked to our happiness

Here are a few factors that will influence our wellbeing;

  • Close friends
  • Healthy relationship with partner 
  • Enjoy your work
  • Regular exercise
  • Enough money to support yourself
  • Nutritional diet
  • Enough sleep
  • Hobbies
  • Spiritual or religious beliefs 
  • Realistic goals

These components all connect with each other;

These components that influence our wellbeing are very connected with one another. Friendship and work provide goals, sense of belonging, and purpose. If you don’t have many friends, and if you have a partner they would make up for the lack of friendships. Religious or spiritual beliefs have been known to help with our mental and emotional state. 

Steps to wellbeing:

  • Connect with your friends and family: A few times a month be sure to get together with your friends and continue to foster those relationships. Try putting down your phone or turn off the TV to truly listen to whoever you are with. 

Good relationships are very important to our mental wellbeing. Good relationships give us the opportunity to share/receive emotional support, you can share your experiences and achievements, they can also give you a sense of belonging and self worth.

  • Become/stay physically active: Try taking up a new sport with a friend, go to a fitness class or try online workouts. Ex. pilates, yoga, strength training, cardio.
    Strength training is great at increasing our muscle strength, helps with joint pain and can even improve balance. (If you’re in a wheelchair, there are many resources and activities for you).

Being physically active is known to raise our self esteem and confidence. Working out releases endorphins which can make you more happy and less stressed. Working out gives you the opportunity to set goals and learn how to stick to them. 

  • Acts of kindness/giving: There’s been many studies that show being kind and giving can improve our mental well being.
    Try volunteering at a farm or a center that you are passionate about or interested in. Help out in the community. Even simpler ones are; saying thank you to someone who has helped you, asking someone how they are actually doing and fully listening to them, offering help to your friends or family who need help with a project, DIY, or just needs company. 

All of those can give us a sense of reward, happiness and positive feelings. When you do good, you feel good. It will also help you connect with more people. 

  • Mindfulness: Be present everyday. be aware of your thoughts, feelings, your body and your breathing.
    If you are aware of your thoughts and feelings, you have a better chance of working through them before they could potentially become a problem. If you’re stressed, practice some breathing techniques to help lower your stress and make you feel more at ease. 

How do we achieve wellbeing?

  • Join in on activities that you enjoy.
  • Join local clubs or organizations that seem interesting to you.
  • Try to be positive each day. Enjoy every day. Take a deep breath when things get hard and to reset.
  • If possible, try to find work that is enjoyable to you. 
  • Make time to hang out with friends and family


How To Have Power Over Self-Doubt

How To Have Power Over Self-Doubt

We all doubt ourselves and our abilities at some point or another. This can happen when we are looking to apply for a job and its description sounds intimidating to you, so you then start to doubt your abilities and whether you should even apply. Some of us may even doubt ourselves when we hear about a friend’s accomplishment. You want to be happy when you hear their news but all you can think about is your self-doubt.

As soon as you feel self-doubt creeping in, you need to find a way to stop it because if we keep allowing that to grow, we will eventually inhibit the way we live our life. We all want to live a happy life without doubt. Our goal is to be confident in ourselves and our progress.

Turn this…

Into this with these few tips.

  • We need to allow ourselves to realize that everyone is on their own journey in life and accomplish goals at different phases.
  • We need to stop making decisions based on what other people will think. Ex. I need a high up job or an impressive job so people will respect me.
    If I buy these expensive clothes people will think I am cool. When they might not even notice that you got new clothes. If you are going to buy new clothing, buy them for you. Questions to ask yourself; does it make me feel good? Do I feel confident in it? Is it comfy and flattering for my body? Etc.
  • If you have people in your life who support and encourage you, nurture and grow those relationships. They are important. They will help pick you back up if you fall or fail. They will help us through our times of doubt. Our supporters in life will help us gain confidence.
  • Create a gratitude journal. Go to the store and pick out your favorite journal. Set a time each day to write down what you are grateful for at that time. It doesn’t need to be elaborate; it can just be one to two things. Eventually you will feel a shift in your mindset. You will slowly stop focusing on what you don’t have/what you think you need in your life. Give your energy and thoughts to what you do have and your accomplishments. When you think positively, you will most likely feel happy.
  • Put sticky notes up on your bathroom or bedroom mirror. Write positive sayings on them like; I love you, you are smart, you are strong, you are loved, you are good enough or your favorite positive quotes.
  • When you start to be kind and show compassion to yourself, appreciate yourself and honor your accomplishments, you will feel a shift in your life for the better.

Stress Management

Stress Management

We all struggle with stress at some point in our lives whether it’s from work, family, or goals.

For some of us, it’s more than others. The important part is finding ways to manage your stress.

Here are some tips and ideas for you to try:
– Incorporate exercise into your daily routine. This will help with keeping your body healthy and strong.
– Adding meditation and mindfulness into your days will help calm your brain and nervous system. Practice taking deep breaths and speaking nicely to yourself throughout the day.
– Yoga is great at calming the brain and body through breathing and movement.
– Spend time in nature. Nature is very connected to good mental health. Take a moment outside to just breathe. Close your eyes, enjoy nature and take a walk.
– Spend time with friends and family. Plan days to get together and hang out. Find out what is causing your stress and find resolutions to that problem.
– Simplify your to do lists. Stop saying yes to things you can’t do or take on.
– Keep a good sleep schedule. Try to wake up and go to bed around the same time every day. Aim for 6-8 hours of sleep per night.

Stress comes and goes and it’s important to remember to incorporate tools to help manage your
stress. Don’t allow stress to take over your life.

You are in charge.

Walking Clubs: A Path to Improved Mental Health for Seniors

As seniors age, maintaining good mental health becomes increasingly crucial for their overall well being.

In this blog post, we will explore the positive impact of walking clubs on seniors’ mental health and how they can help combat feelings of isolation. At the RosesLife Women Center Foundation, we recognize the significance of promoting seniors’ mental well-being, and walking clubs have proven to be an effective and enjoyable way to achieve this goal.

Physical Activity and Mental Well-being:
Regular physical activity, such as walking, has been linked to numerous mental health benefits. It releases endorphins, which are natural mood boosters and reduces stress and anxiety. By joining walking clubs, seniors can engage in moderate exercise, which not only contributes to their physical health but also has a positive impact on their mental well-being.

Social Interaction and Sense of Belonging:
Isolation and loneliness are common challenges faced by many seniors. Walking clubs provide an opportunity for seniors to connect with others who share a common interest in staying active. Engaging in group walks allows seniors to engage in conversations, share experiences, and build meaningful relationships. The sense of belonging and social interaction offered by walking clubs can significantly improve seniors’ mental health by reducing feelings of isolation.

Connection with Nature:
Walking outdoors in natural settings has a calming effect on the mind and can help alleviate symptoms
of stress, depression, and anxiety. Walking clubs often choose routes that allow seniors to enjoy scenic
beauty, parks, or trails, providing a refreshing change of environment. This connection with nature
enhances the mental health benefits of walking and promotes a sense of serenity and tranquility among seniors.

Boosting Cognitive Function:
Regular physical activity, including walking, has been associated with improved cognitive function and a reduced risk of cognitive decline. Walking stimulates blood flow to the brain, promoting the growth of
new neurons and enhancing memory and cognitive abilities. By participating in walking clubs, seniors
can support their cognitive health, maintain mental sharpness, and boost their overall cognitive

Combating Senior Loneliness: The Power of Get-Togethers and Talking Circles

Combating Senior Loneliness: The Power of Get-Togethers and Talking Circles

Loneliness can be a significant issue among seniors, leading to various physical and mental health challenges. At the Roseslife Women Center Foundation, we recognize the importance of addressing this issue and providing a supportive environment for seniors to thrive. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of get-togethers and talking circles in combating senior loneliness.

Building Social Connections:
Because of things like retirement, the death of a loved one, or reduced mobility, seniors frequently find themselves alone. Seniors have the chance to interact with others who share their interests through get-togethers and talking circles, developing new friendships, and establishing social ties. Seniors can lessen feelings of loneliness and discover a sense of belonging within our community by having meaningful conversations and sharing experiences.

Emotional Support and Empathy:
Talking circles provide a safe space for seniors to express their thoughts, concerns, and emotions. The act of sharing and listening in a non-judgmental environment can be incredibly therapeutic. Through this process, seniors can receive emotional support, gain valuable insights, and develop a renewed sense of purpose. Moreover, the empathy and understanding shared within these circles can help seniors feel seen and heard, enhancing their overall well-being.

Cognitive Stimulation:
Participating in get-togethers and talking circles encourages seniors to engage in stimulating conversations and activities. This cognitive stimulation plays a crucial role in maintaining mental sharpness and preventing cognitive decline. Crafts, puzzles, storytelling, or even discussing current events can keep seniors mentally active and promote a sense of fulfillment.

Sense of Purpose and Contribution:
Seniors may find a feeling of purpose and an opportunity to give back to their community at get-togethers. Seniors might impart their talents and experience to others by planning volunteer projects or craft workshops. Their whole mental and emotional health can be improved by this active involvement, which can develop a sense of pride and self-worth.

At the Roseslife Women Center Foundation, we firmly believe in the power of get-togethers and talking circles in combating senior loneliness. By promoting social connections, emotional support, cognitive stimulation, and a sense of purpose, we can make a significant difference in the lives of seniors. Through these activities, we strive to create a community where seniors can thrive, fight against loneliness, and experience a renewed zest for life.
