We need to allow there to be a space for anger.

Did you eat chocolate on Valentine’s Day? I did, and I love this conversation about making that choice.

Intentionally releasing fear – if you aren’t doing this yet, you can and you should.

Do you dare to dream or do you determinedly remain in the present? Is this a conscious or unconscious choice?

I Show Up:

I show up… because every fiber in my being begs to slip back under the covers and sleep for an eternity.  I show up…  because my heart is filled with the grief of a lifetime immersed in unworthiness.

I highly recommend this post for anyone who is dealing with an onslaught of solicited and unsolicited advice, particularly because it might save you from punching someone unnecessarily.

Sometimes I read things like this and think that I should quit drinking coffee. Thoughts?

Self is not a 4 letter word.

This post from Tara Gentile has me rethinking all of my business plans, in the best possible more more more kind of way.

It’s never too late, to be yourself.

Um – a question that I am ALWAYS asking: Do you get taken more seriously with sleeker locks? ::pleasesayno::

Oh darlings, I know that tomorrow is a holiday stateside, but an eLetter will be zooming out to mailboxes around the world with all the deets about new and exciting Medicinal Marzipan changes. Want to get it before anyone else? Say the word and all the gorgeousness will be yours.

    Beautiful set of links this week! Just thought I’d say I’ve been reading a book called ‘Overcoming Depression’ that’s recommended on the NHS and it could almost have been written by you! There’s so much about compassion and listening to your needs. In the wake of Valentine’s day I would like to say that I’m slightly fed up with articles that are either ‘yes I am single and that’s the best thing ever’ or ‘I am a couple woo!!’. I’d really have liked to see something that’s more along the lines of ‘well if you’re single then go and enjoy that how you feel best, and if you’re in a couple then hey, good for you too, just enjoy yourself either way!’. I end up being made to feel bad about being in a relationship and if people want to make it a celebration of being single, well that’s just as silly as most people say celebrating relationships is, because if you think it’s great, you should be celebrating it every day, single or otherwise.

    My mother’s cousin’s wife (who actually is really close to our family despite the three person off-spin) has two PhDs… She has naturally QUITE curly hair and I remember her telling me when I was in the 7th or 8th grade and staying at her house over the summer that she normally always straightened her hair whenever she went on business because she said the difference in how people treated her was beyond noticeable. She said they didn’t take her as seriously, weren’t as inclined to participate/interact with her, etc… even if it was the SAME group of individuals. She said by straightening her hair she garnered more respect

    Thank you for the shoutout! Interesting question about the hair, but all I have known is straight hair! I have wished sometimes my hair would either be curly or hold curls :)
