Accommodating = welcoming; helpful; willing to do favours
If you are part of a group that has accommodating members, you’re very fortunate. Accommodating describes those who are easy to get along with and willing to help you.
Accommodating is the adjective form of the verb accommodate, and it’s used to describe those who are cheerfully willing to make small adjustments to help you out. The waiter who is happy to serve the dressing on the side, give you extra cheese on the burger, and swap French fries for mashed potatoes, all because that's how you want it? Definitely accommodating.
An accommodating person will prefer harmony to conflict. In any conflict, this person will prefer to give in sometimes due to kindness or sometimes because he/she does not want any conflict. This personality will always play the role of a peacemaker. It appears like this person is “giving in” and allowing the other person to “take”. This attitude does not always solve matters, but an accommodating person will prefer this route because he/she feels the benefit is more.
An accommodating person is considered nice and lovable. He/she will understand other’s feelings and will go out of his/her way to make the other person feel good. An accommodating person is empathetic, understanding and very nurturing. This personality may have been developed from childhood, where parents teach children to always be good to others and then God will reward. Such a person will carry this trait into his/her adult life and apply it.

Don't ever depend on someone else, or you will always be disappointed.
“My girlfriend and I have been for over 3 and a half years now. Her always had a problem with me and she knew that I was not that rich from the time we started going out. For three years she told that if a problem was to arise, she would remain with me no matter what. Out of the blue she tells me a week back that she needs a break and now she tells me that this can’t go on any further and started acting like a girl I do not know.
Love means giving until it hurts, right? Wrong. A healthy relationship nurtures your self-esteem and actually inspires you and your partner to grow. If either of you become too demanding, or constantly please or appease, then it's a co-dependent relationship.

If you’re not currently in the workforce—maybe you’re a stay-at-home mom, or you were laid off, or you’ve been dealing with a health issue—chances are you’re financially dependent on a spouse or partner. That isn’t necessarily bad, but it can be risky. The fact is, relying on someone else’s income ormoney management skills can be a crisis in the making. Especially if you’re married, and especially if you have kids.

Before you go to Japan, you probably look at KitKat like it’s just one of those chocolate bars that every once in a while release a limited edition with white chocolate or similar, less interesting, flavors. Since Japan is oh so very different, they always have many variations of it, so I decided to get myself a variety pack with the current six available flavors.
This variety pack is one of the featured products over at White Rabbit Express and is priced at $10.50 (that’s about 150 yen a pack). The flavors vary by season, so if you’re looking into getting this exact pack yourself, you probably have to place your order before the summer ends.

An English lesson, if you are up for it
Today I am bringing you another of my occasional lessons in our ongoing educational series, "English as a Third, Fourth or Fifth Language". This time round, we are going to look at the way the English use prepositions, which, oddly enough, is not unlike the way postmen handle fragile parcels.
Prepositions? They are those funny little words which tend to denote direction, or movement, words like "from", "in", "up", "down", "to", "against", out" and so on.

March 29 is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day
Locally owned and independently operated businesses are the lifeblood of our economy. With that being said, it gives me great pleasure to celebrate the small business owner on their own day. March 29 has been dedicated as National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.
It’s great for the Mom and Pops to have their own day. If you understand the realities of theirjob, you’ll know they live their business 24/7. Early in the morning to late in the evening, someone needs to open the store, take care of the financials, order merchandise, and do everything else that keeps their business running.
Is 2012 the year the mom and pop’s die?

But has the entrepreneurial spirit died in our industry…read more to find out.
