I just took a maniacal drive to get some McDonald’s drive-through, and had all sorts of thoughts running through my mind. And I got to thinking, if Aphrodite was a real woman, and alive today, would she indulge in the pleasure of McDonald’s? I have found McDonald’s to be such a polarizing topic. I come across people who haven’t touched it in twenty years, who have never had it, who eat it weekly, or who try to stay away, but often give in. I’m the latter, in case you’re curious. So, whenever I’m questioning my actions, I always defer to the goddesses. And I ask myself what they would do. And since Aphrodite is the hottest of them all, I really want to know if she would say Yay or Nay when presented with Mickey D’s. Continue reading WOULD MODERN-DAY APHRODITE INDULGE IN THE PLEASURE OF MCDONALD’S?
I have been meaning to do a YouTube article for awhile. But I can be really fickle about my YouTube tastes and didn’t want to create a whole article about my faves, only to find that they have changed within a month. However, I have been super obsessed inspired by these channels lately, and figured I would just take this article by the balls and run with it. It’s also 100% possible that within a month from now, I won’t like any of these channels. Regardless, for now, I’m here to share with you my favorite YouTube channels and why I like them. Continue reading YOUTUBE CHANNELS THAT I OBSESSIVELY WATCH TO DECOMPRESS
Wow, the topics of body image and judgement are so huge. And I might be a total fool to try to tackle them. But, I think these are important topics for all women. We all want to believe we’re the best versions of ourselves at all times, but how can we possibly be? And I really would like to know, am I the only woman who goes into judgement mode when I look at other women? It’s terrible, I know, but sharing out loud about uncomfortable topics is my way of healing. So, without further ado, let’s let the healing begin! Continue reading BODY IMAGE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN LOOK AT OTHER WOMEN?
I suddenly became inspired to start a podcast several months ago, and I just went with it. These days, everyone and anyone can start their own podcast, and there is so much information now about how to do it. The “starting it part” was easy and super fun! I also began with a solid idea in mind, but as I have been making recordings, the podcast is starting to kind of form into what it wants to be. And it’s still morphing. Again, I’m going with it and leaning into that. This podcast is very ME. So, if you like ME, then you will probably like this podcast. The Goddess Attainable Podcast is now live, and I invite you to listen. Continue reading THE GODDESS ATTAINABLE PODCAST IS NOW LIVE
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
I am definitely a sugar addict and I struggle with my sugar intake on a daily basis. However, I do think different people struggle with varying levels of cravings, and I consider myself lucky, because when I finally decide to wean myself off of sugar (I go in cycles and never really, truly give it up all together, but instead drastically reduce my intake), I really do make a commitment. The tips in this article are all specific and thoughtful examples that I have personally used to curb my sugar addiction. I hope you find them helpful as well. Continue reading 6 WAYS TO CURB YOUR SUGAR ADDICTION
This is another lifewithlilred inspired post, and I have to say, lilred moved me slightly out of my comfort zone for this one–which is why it’s a perfect Goddess Attainable topic. The life of a goddess is not about remaining static and staying stuck (although of course, that’s always part of life, so don’t panic if you’re feeling stuck), but rather taking chances, embracing opportunities for growth, and essentially, risking making a complete ass of yourself. Continue reading WHAT I WEAR TO FEEL LIKE A GODDESS
I often take for granted how I see the world from an artist’s perspective. I often think everyone sees and feels the same things I do, but I never really realize the specific way an artist’s brain (and soul) functions, until I speak to another artist, or non-artist, for that matter. Continue reading BEAUTY HURTS IN THE EYES OF AN ARTIST
This is The Goddess Attainable’s first guest post in GA history, and wow, did I choose the perfect goddess to feature. I was honestly sort of cosmically led to Sarah of lifewithlilred, and our lovely connection is still playing out. I recently guest blogged for her and enjoyed the experience so much (she’s so generous, open, lovely, kind, and alive) that I could only wait a week (I tried to keep my cool) before I reached out to her asking if she would consider writing for my blog. Continue reading WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET A REAL LIFE GODDESS?
I recently celebrated my 40th birthday (September 19th) and I thought it might be nice to compile a list of things I have learned thus far. Forty years is not immensely impressive, but it’s also not nothing. It’s four decades (holy crap) and includes childhood, puberty, and the terrible twenties (I was miserable in my … Continue reading TURNING 40
