Venting Anger 101

I looked up “venting anger” on the Internet today.  I was curious about what the cyber world had on this subject.

All the different viewpoints, actions to take and differences of opinion were confusing.  All the articles declaring the weakness and toxicity of anger didn’t make me feel good either.  So let’s sift away all the noise and agree on the bottom line.  It’s all here at:

When Do You Feel Most Beautiful?

Filed under: Culture,Friends,Inspiration,Life,Love,Passion,Personal,Romance,Thoughts,Women — by goddesspower978 @ 6:31 pm

It’s loving our Beauty week and I’ve been thinking about when I feel most beautiful.   Here are a few instances.  I would love for you all to share yours.  Yay!   A toast to sharing new ideas to experience our beauty together.

1.  Today I feel incredibly beautiful.  And the goofy thing?  I have no make up on, nothing.  Not even my beloved lip gloss.  Not one smidgeon of sparkle.  I’m just higher than a kite on life.  I’ve had some fun success in my business and personal life today.  I’m basking and reveling in it.

2.  The sun is finally out!  For those of you in New England it’s been mighty dreary of late.  There’s nothing like the feel of warm sunshine on your body! 

3.  When I make someone else feel good, it makes me feel beautiful!

4.  Dancing, eating chocolate, making love, skinny dipping, blowing kisses, riding in a convertable…I could go on!

5.  When I let something I love go…and it comes back.

6.  When I let something go…anger at someone, something, etc.   It’s hard to let go sometimes, but the weight that’s lifted makes my heart sing!

7.  After a really tough work out.

So looking forward to hearing what makes you beauties glow!

Love, Goddess

A Lesson in Glamour and Seduction

 

 

 

     I love old movies. The glamorous beauties of the era light me up. The playful flirtation and simmering sensuality between the Glamour Goddess and the man of her choice. And I do mean her choice. She chooses the man to seduce. She chooses the man she loves. It’s so fun to see her in action. Wouldn’t it be fun to add a little of her spice, wittiness, sensuality and glamour to our lives? So here we go. Our assignment today is to discover, learn and enjoy a Seductress in action. Watch how she moves, talks, plays and enjoys each man. She even plays with a mans’ resistance to her. She calls men on their BS in a soft, firm and seductive way. She lets him chase her.

     Rent the movie “Gilda,” or watch it on Netflix. It’s full of chemically charged sexuality. The first scene Rita Hayworth appears in is a lesson in flirtation and owning your power. Mr. Munsen introduces Johnny to his wife. Mr. Munsen opens the door to their bedroom and says:

“Gilda…are you decent?” Watch his face. The underlying thought seems to be…God…I hope not. We see a flip of gorgeous soft hair…it’s Gilda. She says:

“Me?” She says it full of play and sensuality.

She sees there is another man. The moment is broken, but she never forgets her power. She slowly pulls the sleeve back over one bare shoulder. Slowly…all eyes on that bare shoulder. The other shoulder stays bare. The shoulder closest to the men.

“Sure, I’m decent.” She’s annoyed…she knows she is being “shown off” by her husband. Is that annoying her, or is it something else? We find out later.

There is a huge flirtation between Johnny and Gilda in that scene. They don’t take their eyes off each other. Gilda says she wants all the employees to approve of her (Johnny is one of Mr. Munsen’s employees) When she finishes that statement, Johnny swallows. Hard. Would he LOVE that approval from her? Study this scene and see the Queen of Seduction in all her glory. Rita Hayworth is the definition of intoxicating sassiness when she tosses her hair back and innocently says “Me?” when the men enter the room. That is a character who knows her power over men. She had men crazy in love with her.

Enjoy! In Love and Seduction, Goddess

Fun…Time For A New Ritual?

Filed under: Culture,Friends,Humor,Inspiration,Life,Love,Men,Passion,Personal,Women — by goddesspower978 @ 3:40 pm

I’m the director of an improvisational comedy group called Rebels Without Applauze. Before every show we do what we call “warm ups.” The warm ups are designed to get rid of the stresses of the day. Warm-ups get us into the mood to really play with each other on stage. Trust me: improvisational comedy is tough. You never know what input the audience is going to give you. We’ve gotten everything from scientific terms we’ve never heard of to German Porn. LOL. You have to honor yourself and the audience by being in a frame of mind to play your cute butt off.

I was thinking about this. Fun and play. It really gets you in a very creative “I can handle anything mode.” So why don’t we have “fun” rituals in our lives? We have them for our bodies, work, how we apply make-up, put our kids to bed. Why not for fun? Especially when it puts you in such a great state of mind? It’s hard for us to make time for fun because we have so many responsibilities. Hmmmm…so will the responsibilities we have run smoother if we add a little fun and play into the daily mix? I know it helps our improv group and its responsibilities for our shows.

Think of how you feel after you’ve tickled someone. Really tickled and had a fun frolic with your kids, nieces/nephews or your lover. You’re all dewy, glowy and so HAPPY! Tickling and laughing make you feel good. The “happy” spreads to those around you. It begins to pour out of you and everyone around you like a burning erupting volcano. (Wow…that coffee really got my metaphor on today!)

The easiest way to start this fun party is with yourself. You always have time to brush your teeth, right? So why not a little nibble of fun? Here are some ideas to add a little fun to our day. Let’s develop our “fun” muscle!

 

1. We have already discussed one of my favorites: Tickling Match

2. Rediscover something you have always loved to do and make time for it. It could be as simple as taking a few minutes to enjoy the ocean or as involved as a lengthy craft project to savor.

3. Anything that involves chocolate is always fun for me.

4. Dancing away! Find an appropriate song to celebrate your fears, sensuality, joy, etc.

5. Go find a pet store and enjoy the puppies or kitties. Bring one home to savor all the time.

6. Make a collage of all your favorite things to do. It’ll be your “Fun Dictionary.”

7. Have a party with your girlfriends. Dance, feed each other, decorate yourselves and savor each moment.

8. Put bright red lipstick on and kiss your bathroom mirror. Leave it for you ( and whomever else ) to enjoy.

9. Meditate with candles, incense and sensual music. If you’re like me…don’t beat yourself up when you can only handle a few moments. Just enjoy the ambiance.

 

I would love to hear about your “fun ritual” and share it here with this amazing community of women. Yay fun!!!! Love, Goddess

Goddess Rule #1

#1: Love thyself: Every glorious, delicious naughty ounce of you.
Even the parts you don’t like so much.

Today we fall in love with ourselves. The parts we love and hate. It’s so easy to love our favorite things about us. Maybe it’s our successful careers, love of crafts, cooking or inner financial wiz. Maybe we can make anyone laugh.
The harder to love are the parts of us we don’t like so much. Remember my impatience blog from a while back? LOL. But to truly fall in love with ourselves we must fall in love with parts we don’t like so much. I know what your thinking. I DO NOT want to celebrate this part of me, Goddess. I hate my (insert here) and you can’t make me love it. I think it’s cute. And I smile at that. And I’ll make a wager with you. (we can discuss terms) I bet that if you just play a little bit with the thought of loving the not so fun parts…you’ll surprise yourself.
This is the least favorite part of myself: The part of me that erupts in anger, frustration, tears and impatience over sometimes, next to nothing. I’ve celebrated that part of me by giving her a title: “Drama Queen.”
Are you familiar with her? Have you ever had those moments where you really just would love to lose it? We all do. But it isn’t proper in our society for us to lose it. We can’t lose it in the boardroom or really anywhere. So where exactly can we acknowledge this part of ourselves?

1. You can celebrate your Drama Queen here…I’m here for you.
2. She can make an appearance with your friends at the “Worry Party” from yesterday.
3. You can call friends.

How do you deal with Drama Queen when she erupts at an inopportune time? Here’s what I like to do:

1. Whenever I see anything with “Drama Queen” on it I scoop it up.
2. When I’m pissy, I have cute stickers I adorn myself with that say “Drama Queen.”
3. I have a basket of goodies by my desk: perfume, stickers, lotion, chocolate, lip gloss
4. I have cards that friends have sent me.
5. I have music I can play….”I hate myself for Loving you,” Joan Jett. LOL

Assignments for today:

1. List all the things you love about yourself.
2. List all the things you don’t love about yourself.
3. Celebrate what you love and don’t love.

Pick something from your “Love List.” You love your beautiful hair? Admire yourself in the mirror and pamper your hair. Brush or comb it. Admire how it shines and smells. Spray glitter in it. Enjoy it.
Pick something from your “Don’t Love List.” Hate your thighs and butt? Perfect. Admire both in the mirror. Apply your favorite lotion, paint a heart on your butt or apply a sparkly sticker. Extra points if you get your husband or boyfriend to help you!!!
Sending love for every beautiful ounce of you! Love, Goddess

Turn Worry into Fun

Filed under: Culture,Friends,Humor,Life,Love,Passion,Personal,Relationships,Thoughts,Women — by goddesspower978 @ 2:52 pm

Turn “Worry” into Fun

What? Are you crazy Goddess? That’s right. Today the assignment is not an easy one. But it will become easier over time. Learning to “Party” with our “Worries.”
First off I want to thank a wonderful man for this idea. One of my favorite all time quotes is from a football player named Rodney Harrison. Here it is:

“I love it when people doubt me.”

Mr. Harrison said it so perfectly. Instead of focusing on all the doubters doubting him, all the bad press, all the “cant’s” “no ways” and “forget its,” he focuses on the outcome…what will make him happy.

He focuses on what will make him happy.

We all have people telling us what we can and can’t do. And if people aren’t telling us what we can and can’t do, they are probably telling us the right and or wrong ways to be doing things. Which leaves us with a whole lot of doubt sometimes. But where does doubt really get us? It gets us on the procrastination and worry train. We want to be successful but we are bombarded with so much information on how to do it. Right, wrong, blah, blah. So it’s time to step off the procrastination and worry train and fully believe that whatever your gut is telling you is the right thing. If you make a mistake? Cool. You learn. It’s not the end of the world. Pat yourself on the back because you are going for what you want…YAY you!
It’s so easy for us to fall into the “I have so much work to do and I don’t know how I’m going to do it scenario. I did it for a MONTH when I didn’t write for this blog. I was Excuse Goddess and here are a few of them: I have to build this web site; I have to figure out how to do this than and the other thing. I am not a techie. I’m on vacation (okay we’ll let that be a good reason…not an excuse) I have A, B, and C I’m in the middle of and I don’t have time. Guess what. All the worrying, fretting and bitching takes up TIME you could be focusing on all your beautiful progress. So what if you didn’t get all you wanted done in one day. As long as you do your best and focus on the positive side of it all…your success…so what? In fact we are really going to celebrate worry and doubt right now.

Throw a “Worry Party.” Seriously. Get your friends together and celebrate it.
1. Send invitations out that embody “worry.” Black, brown, ugly…just blah!
2. Name the food in celebration: “Procrastination Pate,” “Cheese Wheel of Worry.”
3. Serve really dark beverages.
4. Under dress code put “unattractive:” like your most unflattering and frumpy outfit.
5. Play pitiful music.
6. Have a “worry circle” where everyone gets to vent their worries. Toast to them.
7. Discuss.
8. Switch it. Take out your most empowering, fun, uplifting music and dance your booties off! Celebrate taking time to get all the worry out. Celebrate how clever you are for turning something not fun…into a party!

I can’t wait to hear how it goes! Love, Goddess

Have you found the love of your life yet? I have. It’s ME!

Filed under: Culture,Friends,Life,Love,Men,Negative emotions rock!,Passion,Personal,Relationships,Women — by goddesspower978 @ 5:30 pm

     It took time and a lot of love and focus on #1.  The rewards are sweet.  I communicate what I want clearly and deliciously.  I communicate what I don’t want clearly and firmly.  I take very little shit from people.  I call people out on their “bs” when they dish it out:  clearly and unemotionally.  My relationships are closer because I’m attracting good people into my life.  The riff raff has fallen away.   My focus on pleasure, fun, play and love has paved the pathway for joy. I’ve left behind the old beaten up path that was getting me nowhere.  

     Remember my “oh no’ moment from yesterday in The Perfect Kiss?  That “oh no” was fear.  Fear of falling in love:  the highs, lows, the agony and ecstasy.  And I let my fear ruin it.  I embrace fear now.  I learned so much from falling flatly on my beautiful, love starved face:

      I wasn’t in love with myself so I wasn’t ready to fall in love with anyone else.  Think about this phrase, “falling in love.” “Falling” sounds terrifying.  We have injected “fear” into one of the greatest pleasures on earth:  love.  No wonder love seems like such a fleeting, scary thing.  Surrounded by doubt.  Even when you find it:  I’m getting married, but I want my wife to sign a pre-nup just in case something happens.  “just in case something happens” has become normal today in relationships. 

     Embrace Fear.   Listen to it.  Fear tells you exactly what the next step is.  For me, in “The Perfect Kiss” it would’ve been to slow down…the opposite of what I did.  I sped everything up thinking that that was going to lead to more of those beautiful beach moments.  I didn’t relax, enjoy and just receive what this man was willing to give me. Now I stay relaxed and appreciate every ounce of what a man gives me.  I stay focused on what I want.  No rush.  If a guy doesn’t respond to what I want I have others lined up. (See my earlier blog of flirting with everything that moves)  If this sounds selfish, damned right it is.  My heart is beautiful, sacred and a treasure.  It deserves a special man willing to give me what I desire. I’ll communicate my appreciation and share my admiration and passion with this special man.

     It’s hard to fall in love with yourself.   How do we start?  Here ladies:  in this blog.  Be exactly who we are.  No judgement.  Let out a big whoop and celebrate every one of us.  Let’s create heaven and ask the world to join the party.

     The second step?  Pay attention to ourselves every day.  Women love attention.  Let’s pay attention to ourselves and pleasure on our own terms. Then we can communicate these things to a man.  Check out my past blogs. They’re full of tips and ideas.  Let’s fall in love, beauties!

Love, Goddess
