Before I get into the topic of how and why powerful women need and want love too, let me start by saying that all women are powerful. All of them. Every last one of them. The passive housewife who has been “obedient” to her husband for her entire life is powerful. Women may not have been given proper opportunities to express their power, but it doesn’t mean they don’t have it. Continue reading POWERFUL WOMEN NEED AND WANT LOVE TOO
For those of you who haven’t been following, I was dumped by my beloved last month. And I’m now in a full-blown, healing-from-heartbreak period. Look out 2022, cuz here I come! And what has been so fascinating about this awful AF period of time, is that I have been welcoming my comforting nights, and really struggling during my waking hours. The nights have been my time of ultimate healing, and recovery, and restoration. And I haven’t been actively doing anything to move it along. I’ve been unconscious for most of it, and it’s been happening to me, and for me. Thank you, Nighttime, you are the best! Continue reading I WELCOME THE COMFORTING NIGHTS AND DREAD MY AWAKE TIME
“I don’t want to marry you,” he said to me, shaking and emotional over dinner on Friday, December 3rd, 2021. He had been kinda weird and distant all week, but I didn’t know why. I calmly muttered back, “Do you even want to be with me?” Like, are we talking break-up, heartbreak, nightmare? Or just an unconventional life path, moving forward as beloved partners? I felt like I already knew the answer, but of course I needed clarity. He responded that he wasn’t sure. And over the next week and a half, day by day, conversation by conversation, reality set in, as I tried to fight it and push it back hard. And on Monday, December 13th, I officially lost my dream life. Continue reading I LOST MY DREAM LIFE 12 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS
This is my last post of 2021. Because I try to practice goddess-esque living in all of my affairs. And taking a break, remaining present for joy, and pulling away for further reflection, are all super goddessy things. And as much as I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE blogging, I am also looking forward to spending a few weeks away. It’s kind of like when you’re in an awesome relationship. But you have plans to go away on vacation with friends. And as much as you love your partner, you also can’t wait to be away so you can fall back in love, and experience that longing again. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, it’s true. So, I am lovingly creating space between me and my beloved GA, for just a short time. In order to return with fresh and fully-formed, open insight, and feelings of galactic excitement to begin again! Continue reading THANK YOU 2021 AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
in “God,” or “A Higher Power,” or “A Power Greater Than Ourselves.” It was all kept pretty general and very open to interpretation. And even though I don’t have a background in Christianity, I still find this holiday to be so incredibly spiritual for me. And without fail, on the Eve of Christmas, every year, I feel such altruism in my heart. Continue reading THE EVE OF CHRISTMAS INSPIRES ALTRUISM EVERY YEAR
love all things Christmassy (if you don’t celebrate Christmas, this article still applies to any wintery holiday). And one of my favorite things to do in the month of December is make cookies. I know, I’m not special or different in this way at all. EVERYONE makes cookies around this time of year. But for this December, I plan to do a few off-beat cookies that I don’t always make. Because I love mixing it up every year, and don’t always want to get stuck in the same celebratory rut. And although these holiday cookie recipes are a bit more labor-intensive, they are so worth it in the end! Continue reading 3 UNIQUE HOLIDAY COOKIE RECIPES FOR DECEMBER
Gosh, asking a Virgo to try letting go of perfectionism, is like asking a bee to stop making honey. It’s just what we do. And for the most part, even though it sounds like a curse, to live under the pressure of perfectionism, most Virgos prefer it. I think our perfectionism can be tied to our self-worth sometimes, unfortunately. And that’s never healthy. But honestly, it’s like we have an internal, built-in drive to just organize and arrange the world in a better way than it already is. It’s very satisfying to do this, actually. And man, do we have our work cut out for us! There are always projects, and tasks, and people to “fix”! And of course, there is also always beautiful art to be made. Continue reading LETTING GO OF PERFECTIONISM AS I FOCUS ON PROLIFIC ART-MAKING
It’s strange, but I have never really felt very connected to France and French culture. I took a European tour when I was in high school, and it was rather terrible. The chaperones got wasted every night, and they whooshed us through so many different cities in one day, I hardly knew where I was on any given morning. I believe I was in Paris for about four hours, and I wasn’t much impressed. And after that, I decided once and for all that I didn’t like France. Silly me. Because the older I get, the more I become convinced that in a past life, I was definitely French! And I’ll tell you why. Continue reading IN A PAST LIFE I WAS DEFINITELY FRENCH
