3 Leading Questions To Major Life Changes

Successful Boat Building We each model success according to the ideals we hold for our lives and against the standards set by the community, society and even country that we live in. Success is most often defined, delineated and described in terms of material belongings, what you are able to gather, how much you can spend, where and with whom you party and the job title more than the real function. If that “floats your boat,” as an old saying goes, then the last thing on my mind is to

Autumn: The Season Of Change, Shopping And Romance

Countdown To Fall Nine days away from the official beginning of Fall (Autumn) and thoughts are running high in my family about clothes shopping. My daughter is a major shopper – I am not. She goes to a store or a mall every single day – I kid you not. It has become a joke between us when she calls, instead of a hello, I ask “What did you get today?” She now has a legitimate “excuse” for her daily excursions to the stores – a growing child. “I had

Women, Help Stop The Assault!

Uncomfortable Conversations Women inspiring women is the emphasis on this blog. With the support and company of two men, we discuss topics that touch the lives of women living and learning through the daily grind. Some of our conversations might not be comfortable, especially for those who are in denial about the reality of their situation or who might see themselves in the not-so glamorous light.

How To Stop Saying “No” To Your Personal Freedom

Emotional Suicide Previously published on November 3, 2014 Do you know anyone who hangs on for dear life even though the situation they are in is literally or at least emotionally killing them? When my first marriage slipped off the rocks and was rapidly heading to the bottom of a very steep cliff, some people advised me to work on it for the sake of my child. Only 22 years old but very clear that my body could not stand any more beatings nor was I ready to subdue my

5 Ways To Split Expenses Without Splitting Up

Living Together Means Splitting Everything However we may like to think about it, living with a Significant Other is different from living with a roommate. Oftentimes, roommates are brought together by common denominators, such as being students or working jobs with salaries that prevent them from living alone. With a partner, though, we have (or think we have) more say over how things around the house should go—it is not “your room” and “my room,” “your space” and “my space,” everything is “ours.” Ours. Our couch, our room, our swelling

4 Insidious Risks To Women’s Wellness That You Need To Know

Wellness: Anger And Emotions Management We will be continuing our short story series, “Adele’s Pattern: A Journey To Redemption,”  in our afternoon post. This story came about as Contributor, Alexis Ali, and I thought the issue of violence perpetuated by women is one that is hardly discussed with frankness and openness. We wish to support women who find themselves behind the fists, punching something or someone, not judge them. Unless we first acknowledge that there is a problem and then actively provide options or find them for ourselves to solve

Women Empowerment: The Cha-Cha-Cha

The Movements Regular readers know that this blog focuses on women’s empowerment, discussing issues that affect the lives of women all over the world. By extension, we highlight the living conditions of the people who love the women who we turn the spotlight on, primarily their children and their relationships partners whatever the marital status. A few of the Contributors, women and men, might be active participants in the feminist movement. Active would not describe the involvement of others; sympathetic might be a better word. Then there is me –

The Body Image Question: Athletic Women, Hot Or Not Your Type?

What A Guy Wants Are guys put off by athletic or muscular women? Many men prefer beautiful champions, but whether a man likes a sportswomen is a question of choice. A report that I recently read stated that the depiction of women in sports, highlighting the areas of appearance and physique, puts added pressure on them. As a result of rigorous training, the bodies of these women change and when this happens it is a matter of what a man sees when he looks at them. Some men have labelled
