 When The Little Mermaid first came out, my friend’s 7-year old son wanted to see it.  My friend took her son to the movies.  He loved the movie so much he wanted to have a Little Mermaid-themed birthday party.  My friend’s husband was not amused.  He expressed his concern that there must be something wrong with a little boy who was interested in a movie about a mermaid.  “That’s a ‘chick flick’”, he said.

Are we the bodies we inhabit, or is there more to who we are? We’re in a time where remembrance of Self, that awakening that many are experiencing, dominates our thoughts and conversations with others. The duality of form is a tricky place to live. We make it far more real than it actually is and place an importance on it that it doesn’t deserve.

In the last year, I would assume that you have seen, read, or been a part of a debate regarding one of the following: Black Lives Matter, Breast Feeding, Trump, Transgender people, gun laws, Hillary, Muslims, Christians or some other major debate. I am not against these debates. On the contrary, I believe a healthydebate can change hearts and minds and require one another to open their minds and learn about beliefs outside of their own.

 She is a healer, creator and a designer. Even this is not a pre-planned post about feminism or society.. It turned out that those variables are in the same equation and cannot be separated.;World thinks that each Home sapience who carry two x chromosomes is a born feminist. Eventhough everyone ought to speak for her, her rights and her future, she is the volunteer spokesperson for herself and others.  A girl, a woman, a mother,  a leader; so many roles one chromosomes decide.Mother nature, mother ship even mother nucleus... so many words root from her. Over 50% of the world population. Yet, she needs a voice.That’s not because she hasn’t the voice, because her voice has been diminished over centuries.  Homo erects left females at caves and went hunting and exploring because looking after the offspring was her duty.. Ahem.. ditto even for today.

  I use stock photos on nearly all of my blogs, and as such, I have subscriptions with a few different places to provide them. Over the weekend, I was searching for a picture associated with the word "pinch" - I wanted to do a blog on my author site about an exciting thing that happened and I was going to title it: Somebody Pinch Me So I Know I Didn't Dream This." That title bit the dust when I discovered that finding a picture of someone pinching themselves leads to only three options. Anywhere. 1) A woman pinching her own waistline. Usually a very fit woman, so she's only pinching skin over tight muscle. 2) People pinching their nose as if experiencing something foul. 3) The occasional picture of someone cooking. Unfortunately, the predominant one of those three is the first one. Hundreds and hundreds of women pinching their "flab." Or imagined "flab."

  It is quite an amazing thing! Every time I wrote down a wish– it came true! This is the funny thing about setting goals, when you write them down they become concrete and your brain works to achieve them. I was always amazed by people that told me that when they left notes in the western wall their wishes have come true.  I’m not a believer and I always had a logical way of thinking so as a 12 year old I made an experiment:

It took me a lot of practice to be the kind of woman that gives zero f*cks and actively care less about what other people think, because I misunderstood what the ‘give zero f*cks’ mindset is all about. The misconception about women who give zero f*cks is that they have no priorities or passions.

Welcome back to my new series, A Guy’s Guide to Feminism! I hope that last post wasn’t too snarky for you. Don’t worry — this one is much less sarcastic. Now that you’re a bit more aware of the reality of being a woman, you might see why feminism is a thing. Women just want to be treated like human beings.

 Well now, this is an interesting tarot reading. An expression of duality coalescing from the integration of four spiritual aspects of Self.  Three cards from the Major Arcana (somehow I can't call them Trump cards anymore) along with two cards from the suit of Swords including one Court card, and one card from the Suit of Wands are present in this reading.

As you get deeper, they get shorter. And smaller. The clothes in my closet. Its like some weird Alice in Wonderland thing. Once you get to the back of my closet, the dresses are oddly small and scandalously short. When the hell did my clothes get so much bigger?

Ask any doctor, psychiatrist, counselor or therapist working in the business of treating Eating Disorders whether they believe fat is a feeling and they will likely respond with an emphatic No.However, in modern society, expressing or thinking the sentiment "I feel Fat"  is generally accepted and common among people, both Eating Disordered and not.The expression has no logical basis.  Moreover, it is impractical to entertain the notion as valid in a therapeutic environment.

It’s been twenty years since my mother’s death. She had been ill with COPD and congestive heart failure for several years before her death one month before her sixty-sixth birthday. She stopped smoking ten years earlier, but it wasn’t enough. She died alone in her home.

Fat-shaming has become so commonplace a behavior that society’s predisposition to think, act, and proceed in this particular manner is sometimes a knee-jerk response; second only to breathing.   Skinny-shaming, which can be even more brutal and mean-spirited, is nearly as commonplace.  Collectively, this  cruelty is called Body-shaming, and frankly, it sucks.It's difficult to reconcile either extreme, really.  We are all different people; different bodies.  Some people are born naturally curvier, some are leaner.

Two new hives went into the apiary this year along with two new colonies of bees. We purchased a five-frame nuc for the long hive and a package for the Warre’. The long hive combines the rectangular shape of a top bar hive with the traditional Langstroth design allowing for a nuc to be easily installed.

When you are in the mist of first writing and then publishing your first fiction book, "Untouched," this June,  being nominated for  book of the year, and taking your freelance business to new heights, you need sometime away from writing. There have been so many topics that I would have loved to write about over the past two months, so sitting back and observing has been tough.

It’s OK to be disappointed and upset when you’re rejected, but it isn’t OK to demonize those who reject you.First of all, my bad.I know there are very few instances where someone will be held accountable for something they did at 16, but even after nine years, I still feel like kind of a dick about it. Besides, I feel like women in these situations rarely get an actual apology.So, let’s take a moment to really talk about how and why this happened, for the people who may not understand why this is such a big issue.
