What is a goddess? I speak a lot about this in my blog posts regarding surrounding myself with women who I consider goddesses. But what does that look like to me? What might that look like for someone else?
Do we consider goddesses to be these statuesque beauties that enthrall both men and women as they walk by?
What about women who have made their own way in the world and overcome great barriers to get to where they are?
How about women who suffer and survive the hardships in their lives?
Perhaps they are women who have overcome great anxiety within themselves and learned coping strategies to better manage their mental and emotional turmoil within.
Goddesses come in all shapes and sizes and they certainly don’t look the same. One thing they all have in common is that they support one another through thick and thin and bring each other up. Goddesses inspire, teach and live their truth. They encourage others to follow their own paths, wherever they may lead without fear or judgement. This is integrity and being in command of one’s own life. The key to being a goddess is that no one can boss her around!
One cannot be a goddess if she is fearful of her own shadow, lives with overwhelming anxiety and worry, and cowers in the darkness when things get a little tough. Seek help for this. No one wants to live in fear and the constant barrage of the critical voices inside your head. It is possible to turn a critic into a fan! If you are aspiring to be a goddess, it’s time to fight those demons and stand up for what you believe.
Who do you want to be? Who are you right now? Deep questions can lead to extraordinary answers!
