What You Think – You Are





What You Think—You Are

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”1

There’s an old fable that talks about a man who found an eagle’s egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them. All his life, the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken.

He scratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he would thrash his wings and fly a few feet in the air.

Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of its strong golden wings. The old eagle looked up in awe. “Who’s that?” he asked. “That’s the eagle, the king of the birds,” said his neighbor. “He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth—we’re chickens.”

So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.2

How sad when we who are children of the King live as chickens when we could fly with the eagles.

As the old saying goes, “You are not what you think you are, but what you think, you are.”

The Real Reason Smarter Women Stay Single Longer

James Michael Sama

I was recently sent an article titled “Ladies, The Smarter You Are, The More Likely You Are To Be Single.” Well, alrighty…but why?

smarter1

The article sites multiple sources such as this, this, and this, to justify its sweeping generalities of both men and women. For men, it is asserted in so many words that we are essentially power mongers in relationships and only want a woman who will be our subordinate, and not our equal. That smart, ambitious, educated men want someone they can sort of mold like silly putty while she stays home with the kids and he goes out and brings home the bacon.

And they say time travel isn’t possible…it seems we’ve just reverted back to the 1950’s.

The generalization about women is that the more intelligent you are, the more threatening you are. The assumption from men will be that you’re…

Vocation

GoodMorning  Fashionistas

I think you might love this …

Among his various possible beings each man always finds one which is his genuine and authentic being. The voice which calls him to that authentic being is what we call “vocation”. But the majority of men devote themselves to silencing that voice of the vocation and refusing to hear it. They manage to make noise within themselves … to distract their own attention in order not to hear it; and they defraud themselves by substituting for their genuine selves a false course of life.

Jose Ortega Y Gasset ( Mastery pg. 25)

Sexiness ~ Flaunt that Goddess in YOU

Fashionistas,

Sexiness, as I have relentlessly campaigned, is solely not physical. And if ever we are to translate sensuality to measures, dear, I must say it is always subjective! You are desirable if you are yourself. Exude that inner confidence! Wear your true colors! Flaunt that goddess in you!

Sadly, not everyone can adapt to this mentality easily. There are personal restraints and hindrances that we need to overcome still. That is why we are here to help. Girls help fellow girls in need, yes, fashionistas love their kin.

Now, for the curvacious-figured woman who wants to push the limit of style and attraction, following some simple tips may help you wow others with your fashion flair. Know what works best for you and incorporate the latest styles into your existing wardrobe for a fresh look and feel.

While curvy women had only a few chic, elegant choices in attire not so long ago, today is a great time to shop for plus size fashions! Retailers who specialize in this market aren’t interested in relegating your fuller figure to the background, but want to help you stand out in the fashion crowd. Size matters and by that I meant the fuller, the sexier!

While fashion magazines sometimes seem to contradict themselves, as well as changing trends from season to season, once you identify your personal style, you’ll feel much more comfortable and confident in what you wear. You’ll also be able to avoid trends that you know aren’t flattering to your body and embrace styles that make you look your best. Your best plus size fashion tips may differ from the curvy woman next to you, but by dressing in clothes that fit and flatter you perfectly, you can be a true blue fashionista!

Love yourself more!
XOXO,
Nikki ♥
