Summary

Why would someone leave a shining career in management to work among the dead? 
 
Angjolie Mei, funeral director and "life celebrant", recounts how the death of her father—a veteran known as ‘The Coffin King’ in the funeral industry—prompted this dramatic choice.       
 
What exactly happens during embalming? What kind of post-death restoration is needed for second-degree burn victims? What are the little-known facts surrounding suicide in Singapore? 
 
Angjolie offers the insider’s view on these and other aspects of an industry usually shrouded in mystery, and reflects on how her perceptions of death, and life, have changed since she chose this extraordinary profession.

    Healing Your Mind with Positive...

    A positive affirmation is an autosuggestion of empowering thoughts in a form of a statement of something you desire, or a condition of the world, which is repeated consistently in order to implant it in the mind.
    
    Positive affirmations cover a group of affirmations aimed at achieving inner peace, living optimally and building solid confidence to face hardships in life. Instead of just telling yourself what you wish to have in  life,  through  practice,  affirmations  lay  a  much  stronger  impact because when you affirm yourself consistently, you continuously build strong subconscious beliefs in your mind which will then reflect in your outer world. 
    
    There is no reason you should settle for less in your life. We all are put  on  this  earth  to  achieve  our  full  potential  and  by  settling  for mediocrity you are just now doing justice to yourself. So just go for it, you’ve got nothing to lose and all to gain!

    Is he genuinely interested in you, or could he not care less about your relationship together? If you often find yourself wondering how the men you are dating really feel, learn the simple answer to this question that will save you from wasting your time.
     
     
     
    He's Just Not That Into You holds the dating advice that every woman needs but doesn't necessarily want to hear. Though a man's behavior can seem complicated, usually there are only two messages that he is sending: "I'm into you," or "I'm just not that into you." Understand which one he is sending you, identify insincere or indifferent men, and learn to move on, until you find the loving relationship that you deserve. 
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
    ·      What it really means when he says he is too busy to call you
     
    ·      That no matter how right a relationship feels, it may still be wrong
     
    ·      Why you should avoid men who cannot commit to you.
