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!

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.

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.

This is quite an unpopular duo, apparently. Continue reading THE WORLD IS PETRIFIED OF STRONG FEMALES
As women, we don’t like to reveal our confessions of envy to ANYONE, because if we were really being honest, we might come across as terrible, awful people. Luckily, I know I’m not a terrible and awful person. I am human. I have beautiful qualities and ugly, wart-covered qualities as well. And so do you. And so does everyone. Continue reading CONFESSIONS OF AN ENVIOUS GODDESS
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.
