We’re almost at the big 2-0! How would you like to celebrate next Friday when we reach that amazing number? Should we have a cake? Maybe watch the movie Pretty in Pink? Lots to consider ;) In the meantime, let’s celebrate your great writing this week. Here are some of the inspirational blog posts that caught my eye.
Choosing a Healing Provider
Not every healer will be a good match for everyone. Lisa Hutchison focuses on How to pick healing providers who are right for Empaths in her November blog post. She offers useful ideas for selecting a practitioner that is more likely to provide you the treatment you desire and guide you toward your health-related goals. With so many professionals out there, it can be overwhelming to select one, so this is a good read for any empath.
Life: It’s Beautiful
Look for the beauty in life. It’s easier than you may think, as Mariam Naveed reminds us at Women Diaries07. Humans complicate it, explains Mariam. Oh, those complex brains of ours! The blog post suggests that gossip and fakeness are making life more complicated than it need be and detracts from its beauty. This is a philosophical read to take in today or this weekend.
Femininity and Intelligence
Does being feminine mean you are less intelligent? Don’t fall into thinking that! This is the subject of a recent inspirational blog post at My Jawbreakers. As writer Harrison Mines explains, “femininity is cross-culturally categorized as subordinate.” Yet, it doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive from being smart – you CAN be a strong and confident woman at the same time as being feminine.
Loving Your Natural Hair
Your hair is a part of you, whether you like it or not. And Jo of The Melanated Maven encourages readers to not only like but LOVE their natural hair. She inspires us by sharing her hair journey in this blog post. As she explains, our tresses are often tied to our sense of identity as a woman. In particular, I like the section titled “Stop Comparing!” Head over there and give it a read for yourself.
A Poetic Oath
An oath for life is the title of a new poem from Priti C. Her words urge readers to come together with love and support. In this world that is so uncertain right now, the message of unity for men and women is one that is refreshing to come across in my day. I look for positive messages to provide hope and this poem gave me one. Let’s recognize we are not alone and that we truly can help one another.
The Override Button
Syl65 (the pen name of Sylvester L. Anderson) is one of my favorite poets, and he also publishes great prose like this one about the override button. He writes that sometimes “negativity is waiting in the shadows to throw you off and keep you off balance.” When this happens, he suggests we push the override button. Acknowledge that you are allowed to feel whatever it is you feel at that moment – as we’re not naïve, after all – and then try to focus on the good thoughts rather than resting in the bad ones. It is an inspiring read!
