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 [...]
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’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 [...]
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 [...]
As promised I wanted to give everyone some more insight into the changes going on at All Things Girl and address some general questions, so here goes… Q: What’s with the “beta”? A: This basically means we are a “work in progress”. It allows us to work on the site live and implement changes as [...]
One of my favorite sayings is “woolgathering”, a term introduced to me by author Breena Clarke when we interviewed her in 2008. She said: “But recognize that thinking is part of it (that) woolgathering isn’t a waste of time and you will have times that you will sit and not write.“ It’s a reminder to [...]
If you are a regular reader or contributor to All Things Girl, you’ve likely noticed we haven’t quite been ourselves. Issues have been launching late, the blog is quiet, and though you haven’t heard anything, we’ve just been a little, well, off. To be honest, it’s been the elephant in the room among the ATG [...]
It’s hard to believe that another seasonal change is on the horizon. It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the Spring Equinox and in the blink of an eye, the Autumn Equinox will be upon us. The ancient cultures believed in the forces of nature as the soul of their culture, and within this [...]
We are mid-way through 2010. The Summer Solstice will soon be upon (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere). The soft breath of spring upon the earth will soon become the sun-baked days of summer. Summer love, soul-wrenching good-byes… Tell me, what has captured your hearth so far this year? And better [...]
When we set about choosing themes to recycle for our Retro-Year-10-Year-Anniversary, we all knew that we must include this theme that originally graced the pages of All Things Girl in February 2005: Heart and Soul. Without these two elements of our being – one physical and one spiritual – we as people would be [...]
Everywhere I turn these days, I see studies on how women are over-worked, over-committed, and overwhelmed. We are expected to bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and leap tall buildings in a single bound. Women are incredible at multi-tasking and sheer amazing at the way they balance the worlds of work, [...]
I can’t believe that it’s 2010. It seems like only yesterday we were talking about Y2K. New years bring thoughts of resolutions and goals, new beginnings, and the joy of bringing the wonderful things from our past forward. When Alice picked up a copy of Jabberwocky, she embarked upon a journey that into a new [...]
I’m sure I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s already December! Before you know it, we’ll be flipping the calendar page and greeting 2010. Like many of you, the women that make up the All Things Girl family are focused on family and winding up the year and planning for the next [...]
When planning themes for All Things Girl, we try to balance out something inspirational while matching the time of year. The end of any year brings Holy Seasons for many religions of the world as well as the spiritual and secular impending New Year. “Harmony”, we hope, covers both of those areas for each of [...]
School is beginning and I’ve been thinking about the Lost and Found at the various elementary schools across the world. How long will it will be before they are overflowing with forgotten lunchboxes, jackets discarded on the monkey bars, and trodden upon book bags. Life is like the lost and found of an elementary school, [...]
Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is growing stronger, even though the calendar is telling us that we are *almost* at the end of the season. Families are doing last minute vacations as thoughts of school loom in the near future. And many folks are having pool parties and other gatherings to enjoy the season as [...]
It’s summertime in the Northern Hemisphere, which makes me think of one thing: Summer Road Trip. Road trips are filled with adventure and perils as well as comfort and destinations. This is exactly what we were thinking when we planned the July / August issue of All Things Girl is about; the happenings along the [...]
