A romantic love story for our modern times

Their relationship started off on shaky ground to say the least. Hook started by telling Emma and her comrades lies about his survival and Emma was immediately skeptical.

Feminine Anger – more of my own thoughts

Earlier I today I posted a significant portion of an article written by Soraya Chemaly which begins with the bold statement “When men get angry, their power grows. When women do, it shrinks.” I have experienced this truth throughout my life both first-hand and also via observation of the powerful women around me from my mother, aunts, and teachers to employers and political figures.

1_NVHon6CEnIi_sMAnZtEhgQSociety diminishes women who express their anger out loud. They would much prefer we keep it to ourselves, stuffed into a box and sequestered in a closet within our psyche where nobody else has to contend with the “ugliness” of it.

But feminine anger is neither “ugly” or “unfounded.” We have a great deal to be angry about and I will save that topic for a post all its own. For now, I just want to make note of how quickly women have started responding to the writing of Chemaly. It’s certainly garnered more of a response than any other post I’ve written – ever.

Feminine Anger

I can feel her presence. She is always there, nibbling at the frayed edges of my mind. My most intimate and steadfast companion never leaving me behind. Rather, she is the one who jumps into play when others choose to abandon me. I would say she’s back – but truth be told, she never really left.

She exists for a reason and that reason is to protect me when it seems nobody else will. She has never failed me in that regard. Although her means are unorthodox and arguably unethical, she is always effective when it comes to protecting the fragility of my heart. She is not only allowed to feel anger, but she wields it as a warrior might carry a sword and shield.  By contrast, I am not culturally allowed to feel or express my rage myself.

The best love story for our modern times

Since its debut in the fall of 2011, I have been enamored with the ABC television series Once Upon A Time. That year was a time of personal transition and the show beautifully helped me through the difficulties I encountered.

In the pilot, we are introduced to our hero Emma Swan who appears in a doorway wearing a stunning red dress.

It’s okay to not be friends with your ex-partner

I was prepared to write my own content on this subject, until I found the image I would use to go along with it on Bustle.

Writer Lea Rose Emery did a great job laying out the reasons, so I will simply list them here and you can follow the link if you want to read the full article.

Saltwater

“Suppose that particular night never happened, the way a wave crashing ashore empties itself and trickles back in separate communities, mingling yet aloof, a diminishing cortege.”

O at the Edges

 

Saltwater

What if you close your eyes
and your throat relinquishes

the morning’s bright
fingers, freed from bruises.

Suppose that particular night
never happened, the way

a wave crashing ashore
empties itself and trickles

back in separate communities,
mingling yet aloof, a

diminishing cortege. What
is the question? Take this

spoon. Fill it with saltwater.
Upend it into the pail. Observe.

“Saltwater” was first published inNine Muses Poetry in May 2018.

I don’t want to hurt him,

But I have to let him go.

His heart’s not mine to keep.

His path is not mine to follow.

GRACE, NOT PERFECTION !

Even if you can’t see it, its possible. You have more in you than what you realize. The power from within is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4:7)

The Godly Chic Diaries

He transformed my mind and steadied my walk, so I may fearlessly climb mountains. (Psalm 18:33)

I hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection. This year has been one of the toughest and most challenging regarding my faith and trust in God. It’s humbling because at times you think you are stronger than you are. Then the Lord shows you “Ahhhh we still have work to do…”

How many times have you accepted defeat before even trying?!? We are so quick to limit ourselves, deciding who we are and who we aren’t and that’s it. We accept the world’s made-up rules for which we are supposed to be, and believe we cannot break theses rules. Some stay stuck. Stuck in the expectations of others. Stuck going through motions. Stuck knowing there has to be something more. We stay in our little identity boxes, not allowing ourselves to ‘stretch…
