Last week’s post dealt with the possibility of rekindling love 30 years after a divorce:

Dear Vicki: My husband and I divorced thirty years ago. We never had children, which was fine with me since I spent almost every hour of the day building my medical practice. I wanted things done the right way, I wanted it to be the best, and that took time. Apparently, it wasn’t fine with Jim because he remarried within a year of our divorce, opened a restaurant, and immediately had two children with his new wife. We both stayed in Albany. Our paths rarely crossed, but in the little spare time I had, I did think of him a lot. Now, thirty years later, he is a widower and manages the restaurant he has owned for decades. I am retired and wonder if there is any chance we might try again. Since I’m not working, I think things could be better. Is that possible?

This week’s post is a Five Elements Fix and offers Five Element ways to deal with insomnia.

Check them both out on my website and while you’re there, take a look around. You might find something else you like!

Blessings to you,

Last week’s post dealt with ways to be more productive when being creative:

Since retiring, he seems stuck and unable to act on many of the “new” ideas he has for himself. He is initially very enthusiastic about a particular topic, but doesn’t seem able to follow through, so quickly loses interest and moves on to the next idea that attracts him. He is very intelligent, but seems to fear not being able to do things perfectly enough to share with the world.

This week’s post deals with complaints about the way she does laundry!

I wash, dry, and fold everything, then leave it on the bed so we can each put away our own clothes. It had been a stressful week for both of us, but last night when it can time for him to put away his jeans, he rather condescendingly said, “How many times do I have to tell you how I like my jeans folded?”

Anxious About Meeting with Friends

Greetings!

Just a quick reminder that the Ask Vicki blog has moved to my website: https://vickimatthews.com/ask-vicki/  

This week’s post offers a Five Elements Quick Fix for anxiousness:

“After over a year of working from home and strict distancing, more and more of my friends are getting together, going to movies, eating indoors at restaurants, etc. I haven’t joined them at all, not even to get together outside. Rationally, I know it’s pretty safe if everyone is outside at least six feet away, but the thought of being with people other than my family makes me nervous, even anxious. I miss my friends and want to join them for outdoor events, so what can I do?”

Our Relationship with a Temporary Environment

Greetings!

Just a quick reminder that the Ask Vicki blog has moved to my website: https://vickimatthews.com/ask-vicki/  

This week’s post deals with the effect of a temporary environment:

This week we’re going to discuss how we relate to those temporary environments we might find ourselves in like stores, doctor’s offices, friend’s houses, and even in the not-too-distant future, places like restaurants, movie theatres, and hotels as we open up from the pandemic. And while some of the same issues we’ve covered in our previous three posts will definitely be relevant, the most important aspect of the temporary environment is that we usually have very little say regarding what we encounter there.

Our Relationship with Our Work Environment

Greetings!

Just a quick reminder that the Ask Vicki blog has moved to my website: https://vickimatthews.com/ask-vicki/  

This week’s post deals with how our work environment can affect everything we do:

“We’re going to discuss how we relate to our work environment, whether we’re working in or out of the home. And while some of the same issues that we covered in discussing our home environment will also be important in our work environment, there are other issues – like who is in our work environment with us – that will also matter a lot.”
