ATTEMPTING TO MAKE PEACE WITH MY PERIOD

Every woman’s body is different, and therefore, every woman’s period is different. I have a twin sister and our periods could not be more different. Granted, she is my fraternal twin, so we are not exactly alike. But even though we are not identical twins, we still share LOTS of genes together. And our periods are like night and day. Her period is in fact so awful, that for most of her life, it threatened her well-being and sanity on a monthly basis. I’m sure many women can relate. She has recently removed certain period-initiating organs, and is just now starting to settle into a never-known peace. I’m so happy for her and can’t wait to see how her new suffering-free life unfolds. However, I still menstruate, and I’m only just now attempting to make peace with my period.

WOMEN ANSWER: WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING A WOMAN?

For this article, I polled a range of women, most of whom I have never met, but whom I admire from afar. I am so humbled by the responses I received and feel such gratitude towards all of the women who chose to offer their opinions and wisdom. That being said, in these responses, it is so obvious to me the complexity of this question. Answering it requires an immense amount of thought, delicacy, reflection, and sensitivity.

WHAT I WEAR TO FEEL LIKE A GODDESS

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.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET A REAL LIFE GODDESS?

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?

THE TRUTH ABOUT DATING AND THREE IMPORTANT THINGS NO ONE EVER TELLS YOU

I am no longer single. But my years of dating and struggling with my love life will forever be a part of me. And I truly thank the Universe every day for finally delivering me from that space of singleness. It was hard and I don’t wish the struggle on anyone. That being said, I … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT DATING AND THREE IMPORTANT THINGS NO ONE EVER TELLS YOU

HOW TO HANDLE YOUR CYCLE LIKE A GODDESS

I used to be confused and skeptical when I would hear women complain about their PMS symptoms, because I had never really noticed many problems within my cycle. Yes, I would get some mild physical disturbances a week or so before my period (I’m going to call her Dana for this post), but nothing too … Continue reading HOW TO HANDLE YOUR CYCLE LIKE A GODDESS

GODDESS DATING GUIDELINES

I write these Goddess Dating Guidelines as a woman looking for love, unwilling to settle for less than that. This article is not really directed towards the casual dater, or for females who are looking to simply hook-up or just have a bit of fun. This post is written with the explicit goal of divine love and partnership in mind.] Continue reading GODDESS DATING GUIDELINES

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE’S FEMININE FLOWERS

I came across Georgia O’Keeffe’s (1887 – 1986) paintings years ago, when I was probably just a tween; and for some reason, at the time, I did not really notice the connection between her floral paintings and female reproductive parts. I have always been a bit innocent, a bit of a late bloomer, and innocence and youth can often blind us to the shock of sex. I suppose I was fairly blind.
