A Woman is Much More Than her Power to Seduce

This article is a counterargument to an article written by SovietLover on The Reporter and The Girl blog. He talks about how women have the essential tools; smile, cleavage, high heels and humor that enable them to accomplish their goals. Check out SovietLover’s article for more details. Here’s my take.
True, a woman has all the necessary tools at her disposal to get ahead in life. These tools, to strongly point out, entail a lot more than sexuality and seduction. A woman is much more than her body and her power to seduce. Instilling this ideology in women is a step in the wrong direction. Continue reading “A Woman is Much More Than her Power to Seduce”

Feel Good Wednesday: Self-Loving, Self-Esteem

Good Morning beloved friends.
We are here again on this magnificent Wednesday morning. It is quite lovely outside. I hope it is as beautiful out there for you. If not, stay warm and remember to stay positive.
Today’s Feel Good Wednesday article is a post that we have seen before here at Memoirs of a Kenyan written by our very own Mimi early this year in May. The reason I feel that we should revisit this post today is because we all need to learn to love and respect ourselves. If we don’t see the beauty in ourselves, others too will not see it. It begins with us, as individuals. Our self-esteem tells others what we want them to see.
In her post Mimi captured the vitality of self-love and respect in a  manner that paints a vivid picture of where we want to be-in respect to our self-image. Please, enjoy…http://herebyhangsatale.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/beauty-is-in-the-eyes-of-the-beholder/
And, Happy Feel Good Wednesday!

Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Beholder? (Guest Post)

I have to admit, I find myself quoting this line all the time but it never really made sense to me considering how materialistic and superficial our world can be! Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder? I was on the bus on my way to work this morning when I heard a girl speaking to her friend about how she thinks she’s unattractive, bad skin and fat. She then commented on how she thinks her friend is so lucky to have such gorgeous skin, after which her friend responded with thank you and they went on to blab about something else. I was intrigued. I was tempted to turn around and get a quick glimpse of both girls. She was really loud and didn’t seem to care if other people heard her or not. Okay I’m sure some people know or have friends that are like this…low self-esteem, insecurity and feeling worthless. Their conversation got me thinking not because of what she said but how she said it. It’s one thing to be insecure ‘privately” for lack of a better word, but it’s another to be so loud about your insecurities and low self-esteem issues.
So I made it my business to look at both girls when they got off the bus, I could not resist. The first thing I thought was, ‘wowwhat-is-beauty she’s tall! She could model!’ And then of course how insecure she must be, I mean, I barely know her but just from one bus ride I know exactly how she Continue reading “Beauty Is In The Eyes Of The Beholder?
