I buy bras from specialty stores because I have big boobs. I even need large hats because I have a big head.I'm a big person.So yes, I'm living the 3X life, and I'm okay with it.Well......more

Embracing my Sexuality and Unconventional Life

Let me introduce myself.  I am Mandy.  I started a blog called Aphrodite Blossoming.  I started my blog, in part, to accept my developing sexuality.  I am a married, bisexual woman who is beginning to embrace polyamory.  The path toward a polyamorous lifestyle was unexpected.

Give Me a Growth Mindset

OVERWHELMEDI know you know how I feel. My head is about to explode, my frown lines have frown lines, my chest feels tight, my jaw is locked down and I can't stop thinking about how much I have to do.

In the eye of the beholder?

It all started with four simple words from the soft-spoken young cashier at the grocery store as she rang through the eclectic assortment of foodstuffs I'd chosen to carry my husband and I through a quiet New Year's Eve at home. "I like your hair," she said shyly. ...more

Why Don’t You Like Me? Why Does It Matter?

I was having a conversation with a good friend over text yesterday, and as I tend to sometimes overshare with friends, I got to telling her how I have an underlying anxiety constantly that people are not going to like me. And that’s silly, really. Because not everyone IS going to like you, and that’s normal, and healthy.
