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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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’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 [...]
I believe it was Shakespeare who said “All The World’s a Stage”. When it comes to life, there are moments in which we stay in the background, and then there are the moments that we choose to stand out. This is exactly what the May / June issue of All Things Girl is about; [...]
As we move from the March winds and into April showers, we cannot help but think of nature as the earth is reborn. There are cultivated flower boxes and well kept lawns emerging around us, but in other places, we find the wilds, where Mother Nature flourishes. With those thoughts, we are thrilled to bring [...]
