As many of you know, “I Lost My Dream Life 12 Days Before Christmas.” And as horrific as getting dumped can feel (I’m still dealing with all of the emotions), there have also been a handful of logistical nightmares to tend to. Because we co-habitated, and now I am suddenly living on my own. And through all of this undoing and parting ways, I have been SO thankful that I have had enough money saved to deal with all the shit that has come up. And I just want to encourage everyone, ESPECIALLY females, to establish some financial independence, regardless of your relationship status. It has made all the difference in the world. And it makes this whole horrendous process, just slightly less stressful. Continue reading ESTABLISH FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE, REGARDLESS OF YOUR LOVE STATUS
This is an invitation to you, yes you, to submit to me your real and raw story, to be published as a guest post on my blog. As many of you know, I’ve been writing endlessly about my December breakup. And I’ve had to, for myself, to just get all the gunk up. It’s been so healing, and I’m certainly not done sharing about it! However, I feel the need to step out of myself a bit, and instead hear from you. Because honestly, it’s been so helpful to hear other people’s stories, as I navigate one of the most difficult times in my life. And we’re seriously all in this together, regardless of our relationship status. Life is hard, and we need each other. We need to hear from each other, and we need to support one another. And I want to facilitate that. Continue reading I WOULD LOVE TO FEATURE YOUR REAL AND RAW STORY ON MY BLOG
My nose feels like it’s going to fall off. Because I’ve just been blowing it for the last hour, and wiping away hot and painful tears. This is business as usual since my break-up last month. And the pain has been coming in waves. I have good days and bad days, and today feels like … Continue reading CHANNELED WISDOM, DIRECTLY FROM MY HEART
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
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!
This is a holiday tale about one divine, elfin, benevolent, retail goddess. Who assisted me this one time at Pier 1 Imports. I know this subject matter doesn’t initially sound very potentially divine or magical. But, just you wait… Continue reading THAT BENEVOLENT RETAIL GODDESS WHO ASSISTED ME THAT ONE TIME
I don’t really want to write this post, because I get upset thinking about it. But it’s boiling for me right now, so I must. And after watching S4:E1 of Yellowstone last night, I decided that I will be boycotting violence in the media and aggression towards women. I’m not going to attach a link to the this show, because you can search for it if you’re curious. And I am not going to include any imagery of violence in the media. Because by doing so, I would go against the points I will be making, for boycotting violence in the first place. I would like to keep this short, and get this over with quickly. So, pardon the brevity. And here we go! Continue reading BOYCOTTING VIOLENCE IN THE MEDIA AND AGGRESSION TOWARDS WOMEN
In this episode, I fangirl over Deborah Roberts, mixed media artist living and working in Houston, Texas. This is not an interview with Deborah. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And I share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her! Continue reading MIXED MEDIA ART FOR THE EYES AND THE SOUL
In this podcast episode, I fangirl over Sallie Krawcheck, Founder and CEO of Ellevest. This is not an interview with Sallie. But instead, I give a heartfelt goddess shoutout. And share details about her work, and why she inspires me enough to devote an entire podcast episode to her! Continue reading NAVIGATING THE MALE-DOMINATED FINANCIAL WORLD AS A FEMALE
This podcast episode was inspired by The Goddesses. I mean, what else is new? They’re endlessly inspiring! And from the card I pulled below, I was inspired to pose this question to you: Are you taking ownership of your life, or is it the other way around? And I love this question. Because for so many years, I didn’t even realize I had a choice. I didn’t even know this was a thing I could do! And then I started learning ways to gradually (and sometimes not so gradually) take massive ownership of my life. And once I did this, I got REAL HAPPY, real fast. I want this for you as well. So, please listen and enjoy! Continue reading ARE YOU TAKING OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE, OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?
