MY TOP 11 OVERLOOKED, EMPOWERING FEMALE POP SINGERS

I recently texted my twin sister a screen shot of a new Miranda Lambert song that came up in my shuffle. I often do this when I want to share a song with her and/or solicit her opinion about a song. We both love female pop singers and pop music in general, and have loved pop since the beginning of our existence. Continue reading MY TOP 11 OVERLOOKED, EMPOWERING FEMALE POP SINGERS

WOMEN ANSWER: WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING A WOMAN?

For this article, I polled a range of women, most of whom I have never met, but whom I admire from afar. I am so humbled by the responses I received and feel such gratitude towards all of the women who chose to offer their opinions and wisdom. That being said, in these responses, it is so obvious to me the complexity of this question. Answering it requires an immense amount of thought, delicacy, reflection, and sensitivity.

THE WORLD IS PETRIFIED OF STRONG FEMALES

The older I get, the clearer it becomes to me how petrified the world is of strong females. I used to think when I received negative feedback from the world, it was because I was a terrible and difficult person. I’m not saying I’m not. But ultimately, I know I’m pretty great. And once I reached a place of genuine self-love and self-acceptance, I realized the negative backlash was not about me. No. It’s about the fact that I’m me AND I have a vagina. The world doesn’t like that. If you’re gonna be strong, you better be a man. And if you’re gonna have a vagina, you better be “nice” or whatever. But if you have both, strength and a vagina, ugh. This is quite an unpopular duo, apparently. Continue reading THE WORLD IS PETRIFIED OF STRONG FEMALES

IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

I am a decent listener in some aspects. In other areas, not so much. First off, I love to talk. I love to express and I love to share. You would think that would make me a terrible listener. However, I ultimately enjoy making authentic connections with others, and I know enough to know that you can’t connect with people unless you REALLY listen to them and take a genuine interest in what they have to say. It’s called “being a good conversationalist” and I think I have that on lockdown. However, there is always room for improvement. Continue reading IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE A CREATIVE BLOCK

You’re not gonna like this answer, I guarantee it. And I might be wrong. But, speaking as a person who has been creating since I could hold stuff with my dainty digits, I think my opinion is worth considering. It has taken me many years to accept this fact, and even now, as I feel my creative juices drying up for the first time in weeks, I still resist this truth. But trust me, when you have a creative block, the best thing to do is nothing. Continue reading WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU HAVE A CREATIVE BLOCK

4 WAYS TO CREATE MEANINGFUL ART

I wouldn’t call myself a “successful” artist in the professional sense. My work rarely sells, I don’t practice regularly, and it’s not my sole vocation. However, I do believe I know my shit when it comes to creating meaningful art. I have been making art for my entire life, I attended an accredited art university, and have exhibited my work in galleries and competitions for years. I know how to make art that moves people, regardless of my credentials, or lack thereof. And that is what this article is about. Continue reading 4 WAYS TO CREATE MEANINGFUL ART

5 WAYS TO AVOID LOSING YOURSELF ON A DATE

I am not exactly the queen of losing myself on dates, but I might be the princess of this domain. Maybe a duchess. My personality is quite strong, and I really do know who I am. But before The Goddess Attainable, I was a master of turning my power over to men, especially if I was attracted to them. Depending on the man I was on a date with, I would displaying varying duchess-princess-queen levels of self-abandonment, and it really sucked. Continue reading 5 WAYS TO AVOID LOSING YOURSELF ON A DATE

HOW BLOGGING CHANGED MY LIFE

My life changed when I started my blog and the story is really rather inspirational. I never really put the pieces together when I first began blogging, but sometimes you need distance from something in order to see the magic of it. I have been blogging for almost four years now, and I love it more than I ever thought I would. Continue reading HOW BLOGGING CHANGED MY LIFE

CONFESSIONS OF AN ENVIOUS GODDESS

As women, we don’t like to reveal our confessions of envy to ANYONE, because if we were really being honest, we might come across as terrible, awful people. Luckily, I know I’m not a terrible and awful person. I am human. I have beautiful qualities and ugly, wart-covered qualities as well. And so do you. And so does everyone.
