I’ve been meaning to write about this topic for awhile now, but I didn’t quite have enough material to work with. Now I do, so I’m going for it! Because I really believe so passionately that women in particular, rarely ask for what they want in the workplace, especially in terms of compensation. And what I have found, through my own personal experience, is that if you don’t ask, it won’t ever happen. And if you DO ask, you often get what you ask for, if not better! So, women, please do me a favor, and ask for what you want in the workplace! Because you are worth it! Continue reading ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT IN THE WORKPLACE
I was in the car yesterday and was listening to a song from my youth. I wasn’t like a huge Silverchair (ca. 1997) fan or anything. But, a boy I was obsessed with in high school liked them. So, at the time, I made myself listen to a few songs, and actually still really like one of them. And hearing this song in the car got me thinking about the way I behaved when I was younger. I had a strong personality always, but so very often muffled myself in order to be liked and accepted. And I began wondering if there are other females like me who have strong personalities and have experienced being shamed for it. Continue reading A LOVE LETTER TO FEMALES WITH A STRONG PERSONALITY
The idea for this article came to me in a random moment. I was taking the train to work, and was thinking about how many moments of the day females question their own power. Or decide to hide, or dumb it down in some way. And how hard it can be when females express their power deliberately. It’s never easy. Although, I have found that the more I do it, the easier it becomes. But, there are many unassuming ways that females express their power, that can often take others by surprise. Expressing power doesn’t necessarily involve raised voices, physical strength, or other stereotypical “male” expressions of power. Females can express power in everyday behaviors, and can get really good at it, with a bit of courage and persistence. Continue reading 5 UNASSUMING WAYS THAT FEMALES EXPRESS THEIR POWER
This is the first of of my “Real and Raw” guest post series. And it’s coming from one of my favorite bloggers, K E Garland. I’ve been getting to know Kathy over the last few months, via our mutual blogs. And she’s just one of those bloggers that I can relate to. Where something she says makes me go, “Yep, yep.” And where her responses to my words make me feel validated and connected. I was secretly hoping she would submit something for this series, but of course, I didn’t want to push. Thankfully, I didn’t have to! And I think we can tell by this topic of “Why I Hate Being A Woman,” we are in for a real and raw treat! Continue reading WHY I HATE BEING A WOMAN
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
The longer I have this blog, the more enamored I become of women. I have a history of being super critical of women in general, and opting instead to put men on a pedestal. That was the way I saw the world before The Goddess arrived. Continue reading WOMEN ANSWER: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO MANIFEST RIGHT NOW?
I’m so pleased to say that I’ve been feeling so happy lately. And I’m not here to offer any advice on how to get happy. Not that I don’t want that for you. But, I just know that I haven’t always been this happy. And I may not stay this happy. So, who am I to offer smug advice on the matter? This is a fleeting and wonderful place to be right now, and I am thankful for every moment that passes with me feeling this way. So, for now, I’m just enjoying. And because I am feeling so open and happy, I thought it might be fun to offer a magical channeled message from the goddesses. Rather than me blather on about his or that. Continue reading THE GODDESSES OFFER A MAGICAL CHANNELED MESSAGE
This entire blog, and for the most part, my entire existence, is all about how to cultivate my goddess qualities, strive for more goddess-esque actions and thoughts, and ultimately to become more goddess than woman. At the very least, I would love to strike a 50/50 balance (the name The Goddess Attainable succinctly encapsulates this exact idea). It’s a lofty goal, I know, but it’s what feels right for me. Continue reading CULTIVATING OUR GODDESS QUALITIES IN 2021
