Wellness strategist Dawn Burnett has an impressive track record for helping people unlock better health and greater vitality.  Like all of us, however, she has had a life filled with highs and lows. The child of divorced parents and a survivor of abuse, she was in a toxic marriage and then, just after her divorce, was hit by a drunk driver. These events, and the discovery that her son had a life-threatening condition, led her to a wake-up call. Studying to become an alternative medical practitioner to heal her child, she also sought answers on how to heal her own life. Along the way, she charted a course to ultimate wellness on a path filled with valuable lessons, deep wisdom, and insight on a variety of issues—including personal relationships.  She recognized that becoming trapped by the toxic emotions of our past can weigh down our spirit and sabotage any chance we have at happiness today or in the future.

The result is Connect, a light but powerful little book that provides humorous yet effective ways to address key issues facing serious relationships. Filled with personal, engaging stories,  complemented by captivating illustrations, it reveals: the pitfalls of dating in the digital age; the many ways we unintentionally sabotage our relationships; why we find ourselves choosing mates from the never-ending 'carousel of losers'; and how we judge ourselves—and others—without mercy. The antidote is a simple, empowering plan readers can implement themselves to heal their own hearts, pinpoint their true dreams and desires, and find meaningful and lasting bonds with their partners — whether they have already met or are still looking. This amazing little book is big on success, and will help readers finally attain what they outwardly say they want—without the emotional resistance associated with trying to change their partner.

Whose Man Is He?

I RECENTLY TRAVELED TO BEVERLY HILLS with my date, my handsome blond-haired, blue eyed eleven-year-old charmer. We had just arrived back at our hotel and were sitting poolside, cooling off with a drink—non-alcoholic for him, of course—when out of nowhere came a pushy dude wearing a suit, trailed by a skinny, long-legged blonde.

Excuse me, I said, but there is somebody sitting there.

He looked at me and shoved over an inch.

Do you want something to drink? he asked.

My date, being the bubbly social type that he is, was busy talking the night away with some Scottish tourist who I later learned was a very intriguing and spiritually awakened man who suffered some serious health problems at a young age, causing harm to some of the family jewels. But we’ll talk about body parts later.

As my son excused himself to the restroom, Mr. Pushy Pants started a conversation with Scotty boy. Before I had time to remove the fuchsia paper umbrella from my drink, Ms. Skinny Blonde began peppering me with questions, which led into a longwinded drama worthy of the Broadway stage. Even though I had only known her for thirty seconds, she began sharing her whole life story, and gave me the complete rundown of her string of recent boyfriends, their considerable faults, and how they had been completely wrong for her. I just nodded and took a bite of my pineapple skewer.

As she continued to offload on me about her current dating situation, as if I was a columnist for a dating newspaper, she told me about her husband’s battle and death due to cancer. Although I felt I empathized with her loss, all I wanted was to relax and enjoy the rest of my evening—and not get drawn into a total stranger’s drama—but she kept chatting.
