As both a writer and a life coach, I have an intimate relationship with the concepts, symptoms, and appearance of both fear and courage. While I prefer to think of the world and it’s inhabitants in the light of courage, it’s hard to acknowledge without openly discussing its mirror image, fear. I’m often drawn to [...]
Remember when you were little and you couldn’t wait to be five, or ten, or whatever the next magical age was? Freedom was just around the bend, if only the pages of the calendar would turn a bit faster. Then we’d be able to stay up later, walk to school with our friends, or wear [...]
Once upon a time, I was a Road Warrior Princess. Work took me to fabulous cities like Washington DC, New York, Philadelphia, Vancouver, and Tulsa. The more I traveled, the more I realized that I was able to find comfort and connection and a sense of home no matter where I happened to be for [...]
When the new year rolls around, it isn’t unusual for us to stroll down memory lane, exploring the past as if it were pages of a story book. In most cases, I choose to remember the humorous and the good stories and gloss over the not-so-glorious ones. I wonder if it’s human nature to look [...]
Maybe my age is showing, but when I was a little girl, it wasn’t unusual to see color blocks or a back and white test image on the TV screen informing the viewers that the station was experiencing some technical difficulties. Well, up until recently, we were experiencing some technical difficulties here at All Things [...]
I have to be honest: I’m a very logical person – an ENTJ in the Meyers-Briggs world. As I’ve grown older, though, my mind has begun to wrap around the understanding that some things of the world aren’t 100% explainable. I could never say that faith or love can be worked out to a scientific [...]
As we dawdle on that sweet spot between summer and fall, when the world slowly begins to change around us, it’s an excellent time to pack our “bags” and do some exploration. In Writings we are ushered through mysterious, life-changing doors as we explore relationships and the road to finding the courage required to take chances. In Arts we’re treated to lush images filled with a sense of wonderment.
I spent a month in Europe this spring, trekking from The Netherlands to London to Dublin using planes, trains, automobiles, ferries, and a (now) worn out pair of sneakers. This wasn’t what I would deem a vacation. It was travel. It was adventure. It was all about exploration in so many ways. I tell you [...]
All Things Girl is entering it’s 12th year of publication. Pretty incredible. And to be flat out honest: so very exciting in so many ways. Personally, I can’t believe a decade has passed since I joined All Things Girl in 2002. I look back upon the stunning pieces by incredible women and am awe-struck. I’m [...]
Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the color brown is quickly being replaced by a myriad of green with splashes of yellow daffodils and red tulips. I adore spring – and love to see the earth coming to life after its winter sleep. The theme of this second issue of 2012 is “Color!”. When we [...]
I’m always excited when the new year rolls around. It brings to mind thoughts of fresh slates, new beginnings, and lots of opportunities. I’m also thrilled when we bring to you a new issue of All Things Girl. The theme of this first issue of 2012 is “Jump!”. When we planned the themes for [...]
Things that we love can plague our brains to near obsession at times. I know I’m not the only person for whom, during a creative spell, sleep abandons. My brains inability to stop thinking (obsessing) until a beloved project is completed or taken to the next stage is fueled by rich thoughts, insominia, adrenaline, and [...]
We’re midway through September and I find myself so excited this beautiful afternoon as I look ahead to the next couple of months here at All Things Girl. First of all, be sure and check out our Arts Section. I just added two new pieces to our “Wasteland” Collection. We are in discussions with seven [...]
Am I the only one who is shocked when time marches forward so quickly. It seems like only yesterday we were launching our first issue of 2011. And here we are today, midway through September just days away from the Autumnal Equinox. When we were contemplating themes for 2011, we wanted some contrast for the [...]
I believe it was Einstein who defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting different results. So, for the sake of insanity relief, we are making some changes here at All Things Girl. Beginning December 29, 2011, All Things Girl will become a quarterly magazine. As with any relationship a [...]
The calendar page has once again flipped, and here in the northern hemisphere we are well into spring. Summer is just around the corner. As much as I always loved school (yes, I was one of those kids), the lure of sum-sum-summertime was a powerful thing. No matter where we roam as adults, within each [...]
We’ve been having some issues with our submission form recently. Thank you to those who emailed us about it to let us know. We have now fixed the issue (we hope) and it should be working as expected going forward. Our apologies to anyone who has tried to submit their work recently and experienced any [...]
I’m sure I’m not the only person thrilled that the calendar page has once again been flipped. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the month of March, as it brings to mind fat robins, Saint Patrick’s Day, and the first day of spring. March reminds me that though there still may [...]
