To meet perceived expectations as my own Divinely feminine internal compass tried to guide me, but was often ignored. I wanted to use my skills and to prove my … Continue reading Power of the Pause
I’m in my luteal phase, an important concept I only uncovered today. Since I’ve been feeling so seemingly crappy, and it’s not yet time for my ‘period’, I decided to pause and investigate. Even as I type this, some part of me is saying, “Shhh…don’t talk about these things.” As a teen, my education about … Continue reading Celebrating my Divine womanhood
