The Seven Stages of Marriage....

Every marriage is unique, but most follow a similar path that flows through seven distinct stages. Understanding the work required at each can give you a road map for handling rough times, and help you and your spouse focus on how to be happy, secure and satisfied.

Stage1: Passion. The honeymoon phase, when romance and intense attraction lead to commitment.

Stage2: Realization. Disappointment and conflict mark this unavoidable period. The challenge? Laying the groundwork for a long future together.

Stage3: Rebellion. Self-interest versus shared interests. Knowing the difference between a destructive desire to flee and a healthy need to be your true self is this stage’s key test.

Stage4: Cooperation. In time, marriage means managing money, building careers, raising kids. Going from lover to partner to parent can get rocky.

Stage5: Reunion. Once the kids are grown, then what? For happy couples, it’s time to enjoy each other again. But the ideal can be hard to achieve. Passion’s embers need stoking; expectations need rejiggering.

Stage6: Explosion. Job loss, health woes, illness or death in the family – such events can come in waves. Will your marriage be a source of solace or sorely tired by new roles, limitations and fears?

Stage7: Completion. Marital bliss often soars after decades together because ‘knowing’ each other now has a deeper meaning – and a bigger payoff.

Sperm Count

An 85-year-old went to his doctor’s office to get a sperm count. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, “Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.”

The next day, the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asked what happened and the man explained:

“Well, doc, it’s like this - First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. she tried with her right hand, then her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, and still nothing.”

“We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit and she even tried squeezing’ it between her knees, but still nothing.”

The doctor was shocked! “You asked your neighbor?”

The old man replied, “Yep, And no matter what we tried, we still couldn’t get the jar open.”

Atul depicts.....

The influence here tends to make these people rather physical, and at the same time they can respond to the impulse within themselves through acts of giving and generosity. The physical
element robs them of the sensitivity required to feel people out. They can be pushy without the slightest regard for the feelings of others.

Only in retrospect can they perceive the error of their ways and then some of them still cannot see anything wrong in their conduct. They can be heavy of body. I do not necessarily mean heavy in the sense of weight. There is a materialism that governs and influences their direction in life. They are practical and fascinated with science and all things that represent form and mathematics.

They have an intellectual approach to life that is oriented toward fact and logic and are quite skeptical of anything that is out of the realm of orthodoxy. Hard work is not foreign to their natures.
Their plodding patience will persevere to the end.

So just need to follow the Planet Atul

Wordless Wednesday

You and I cannot hide....
The love we feel inside...
The words we need to say...
I feel that we always walked together...
When you were with me...
There was always a place that we can go, but...

Suddenly our destiny unfolds.... and it becomes Wordless Wednesday !!

True Love !!

What does true love mean to you?

"True love is not how you forgive, but how you forget, not what you see but what you feel, not how you listen but how you understand, and not how you let go but how you hold on"

I promised my angel various things which I just need to hold on, till the time she will be back. I respect her for what she was to me, what she is to her family. But she has decided not to go against her family. She said
" Thank you for all your love and support, these days were the best of the days of my life which I will cherish"

I said hmmm...... What should I reply to this Thank you.... You are welcome. :-))

Do tell me Angel !!

Time to realize ......

It's time to realize, the pain
….which I cannot bear,
….which has been revived,
...of staring at walls,
….being left alone,
….which cannot be released through tears.

A time to realize I should not frown.
Its time to cherish those happy moments…
You've been my angel,
but now you’re going, far, far away

I don’t know what to do, what to say….
whether to scream, cry or shout or sob….

Just come back and don’t leave your baby!

Make a wish to....

... smile at a stranger
... listen someone's heart
... drop a coin where a child can find it
... learn something new, then teach it to someone
... tell someone you're thinking of them
... hug a loved one
... say "I'm sorry"
... look a child in the eye and tell them how great they are
... look beyond the face of a person into their heart
... make a promise, and keep it
... call someone, for no other reason than to just say "hi"
... smell the rain, feel the breeze, listen to the wind
... use all your senses to their fullest
... cherish all of your TODAYS

International profit associates

Business plan is like a roadmap that shows where your business is going and how it's going to get there. International Profit Associates make every effort to provide quality consulting and professional services to small and medium-size business in North America. With many years of expertise, we are able to contribute business related articles for the benefit of all privately held businesses. Business is what all I have everyday on my mind.

I want to start a fresh business but I don’t have any plan to materialize on, but as per my studies suggest I should follow the plan which has already worked and then possibly defrag it and multiply and should take International Profit Associates help.

I have been informed that they are the most branded and reputed name in this market to work with them. I was going through their website where I saw their official quarterly publication of International Profit Associates’ IPA’s Business Today and they provided me an in-depth look at the internal workings of small business with a focus on positive cash flow, accelerating profitable growth, succession planning, determining corporate value, controlling costs, business plans and tax planning.

You know what I prefer to take spend money and get business the well deserved attention and the plan. So be it with best and be best !!
