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 driving home from my sister’s house last night, and I was feeling pretty good. Considering it’s been two months since being broken up with, I think I was in very good spirits. Then a song came on that made my cry. No big deal, songs make me cry all of the time these days, and that’s okay. But I realized that right after I gathered myself, my cheeks still wet with tears, I started obsessing about romance. And I noticed that it’s this thing that I do, that I have historically done, when I’m in pain. So, on this occasion, instead of letting the obsessions play out, I started using affirmations, saying them out loud to myself in that moment. And these affirmations really seemed to neutralize my emotions, and level me out. Continue reading USING AFFIRMATIONS IN A WAY I NEVER HAVE BEFORE
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?
I am not a mysterious woman. I have always worn my heart on my sleeve, and I do so with this blog as well. So, I will tell you up front the only two things you need to do to find love. And it’s up to you to hang in there with me while I thoughtfully break this down for you. Will you join me for the ride? Continue reading THE ONLY TWO THINGS YOU NEED TO DO TO FIND LOVE
From my experience, the key to being happy at work is all about finding the right match. It’s kind of the same as finding a good relationship. You can work at it and improve yourself, reflecting and growing and changing along the way. However, if your partner sucks, or is just incapable of being decent, it really doesn’t matter what you do. And leaving becomes the best option for all parties involved. I do believe that the same is true for finding happiness at work. And it’s all about recognizing the warning signs. Continue reading HOW TO GET HAPPY AT WORK
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 don’t know why, but whenever I create something, something I really like and am proud of, I can’t stop looking at it. Even when I’m in the middle of creating it, I keep coming back to it, even when I don’t need to. And not with the intention of re-working it, but rather just to gaze at it and adore. Continue reading FALLING IN LOVE WITH MY CREATIONS
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
[This post has a somewhat violin-like tone and is a bit woebegone in content, but sometimes you have to get the woe out in order to move forward.] I recently received a text message out of nowhere, from a childhood “friend,” and without getting into the nature of the text, which was seemingly harmless, but … Continue reading BULLYING
I always feel weird when I see the color yellow. I don’t hate the color, but it just seems a bit much for me. A little too intense. Sometimes, I will see someone wearing yellow and think to myself, “Oh wow, that’s a great color on her, but I don’t think I could pull that off, and don’t even really want to try.” I’m not drawn to the color in any way.
