This digital lifestyle can be all consuming and I think it’s important to limit our time with these sorts of social networking apps and remember to interact with the people who are physically present in our lives.
When it comes to choosing our Man of the Moment here at All Things Girl, we always go for intelligent, sexy, and talented. With Actor Ray Ford, we are certainly fulfilling all of those desires – and more. You will find Ray on ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23″, which begins Season Two [...]
“Let’s go exploring!” Many summer afternoons my friend Lisa would show up at my front door, a mischievous glint in her bright blue eyes, and issue that invitation. Actually it was more like a command, since Lisa was definitely the master sergeant and I the dutiful foot soldier in our childhood relationship. In those days, the [...]
In Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, a favorite book of mine since the age of six, Jo March complains that the reason for her November birthday is that – at least according to her sister Meg – it’s “…the most disagreeable month of the year.” For the longest time, I had a silent disagreement with [...]
We can’t control everything that happens in our lives, but we can control our reaction. And it is our response to such stimuli that has the most powerful impact upon our story. Setbacks in life happen. But as long as we live and breathe, it is never too late to redraft our narratives.
I’ve come to really understand that some pieces of you may never heal. It isn’t that you are flawed. What your soul is telling you is that you aren’t meant to forget every painful part of your past. Instead, you are learning to integrate who you were and where you’ve been with who you are now and where you are going.
You wake up, bleary, not sure exactly what time it is, the alarm clock keeps going off and all you know is that you can’t hit snooze for the fifth time. Sitting up, you rub your eyes, and wonder if you have time for breakfast. Or a shower. But certainly not both because you overslept. [...]
We wage wars every day. The most dangerous ones are waged within ourselves. It is these conflicts that break us. That change us. That keep us honest. Or keep us hiding behind an image. Personally, surrendering to this war of image and expectation would mean death. Waving the white flag would mean living a lie. [...]
When you were little, did you ever rip up a picture you’d worked really hard on just because you colored a little out of the lines? I’ve had a lot of experiences like this throughout my life and I am just now beginning to regret it. When I was in high school, I wanted to [...]
“There’s really something about playing a young, female character who is extremely intelligent; it’s empowering. Makes you feel you can take on the world.”
Whether you’re a circus fan, a person with a deep-seated fear of clowns, or somewhere in between, there’s little doubt that you understand what a ringmaster is. Our July Man of the Moment, Johnathan Lee Iverson isn’t just any ringmaster, though, he’s the man at the center of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey [...]
I am a huge advocate of digging into the recesses of the heart and finding purpose and passion in life. However, lately I have been lacking the energy to “self-explore”. Sure, I love coming into the magical state of a new consciousness, but what if I took a little bit of that energy and explored [...]
I knew for certain at age 13 that this would be my profession. I had open heart surgery and when I woke up from the surgery I felt crystal clear about what i wanted to do.
My first job was at Ecolodge San Luis and Biological Station in the valley of Monteverde, Costa Rica. As a naturalist, I first studied the flora and fauna of the rainforest by walking in the rainforest every day. I learned to see trees as individuals and recognize birds by their calls.
Early on in life, we learn the power of if, then statements in a very simple and and innocent way. For example, in math class we use if, then to learn logic. If a = b and b=c, then a=c. Harmless, right? However, it doesn’t end there. It goes on and on. We play [...]
I remember the day that I spit on the American Dream, wrapped it up in a few squares of two-ply toilet paper, and sent it swirling down the toilet to the land of crappy inhibitions. I was six. It was summer and my Grandma, hardcore but extremely caring, was doing the dishes. Other girls in [...]
