Expressing Your Inner Goddess

We all have a Goddess inside of us.

We all have our own special inner powers, passions, and purposes to live out, but we have been conditioned to listen to our doubts, fears, and insecurities.

It’s time to let that Goddess shine.

I’m not suggesting you throw a Goddess party, wear a flower crown, or to book a retreat.  Those things are fun, but they don’t have anything to do with who you are- the strong, beautiful woman who has endless gifts to offer the world around them.

Divine feminine energy embraces intuition, inner wisdom, and the ability to both give and receive.  Strong and confident women are secure in who they are, lift others up, and know the importance of self-care.  They don’t have to overpower others to prove their point; they have a quiet power that shines through their everyday actions.

So, are you wondering how to start embracing your own Goddess within?

1. Leave your ego at the door

You don’t have anything to prove to anyone but yourself.

2. Open your heart

You may think it’s safer to keep it closed, but magical things happen when you’re open to receiving.

3. Love yourself without judgment

No one is perfect, and that is what makes us unique!

Embracing your inner Goddess is all about letting your authentic nature free and finally allowing your light to shine.

Somewhere along the road our spirit was crushed.  It may have been a parent’s divorce, childhood trauma, bullying, or a broken heart.  Maybe someone told us our dreams were foolish, or perhaps we were conditioned to think we weren’t good enough.

As adults, we can heal those wounds and go back to our original state of joy, dreams, and delight.  We can let go of what the world around us has said and start listening to ourselves.

From living beautifully every day to knowing the importance of setting boundaries in your life, you don’t need anything outside of yourself to embrace the Goddess within.

She knows the way- you just need to start listening to her.

A Lighter Aesthetic (and State of Mind)

Lately I have been feeling lighter, fresher, and free- and my home reflects how I feel on the inside.

I noticed how my personal aesthetic has evolved over the past couple of years- from blacks to pale pink and gold, I’ve slowly brightened up my life and opened my heart a little more.

My new bedroom decor is a representation of how I feel on the inside, with simple luxuries and a feminine feel.  My minimalist approach to my decor is practical and chic, choosing quality over quantity and a purpose for each piece.

As many may know from my writing, it has been a turbulent few years.  The process of changing yourself on the inside, overcoming pain, and getting (but most importantly, staying) sober is emotionally draining, but coming home to a haven is imperative to my serenity.

I wrote about my leisurely morning on my other blog, Sobah in the City, where I share stories of self improvement and living sober and chic.

Life is a journey, and it’s even more meaningful when you learn to live beautifully.

Simple Ways To Live Beautifully Each Day

It’s the small things in life that bring the biggest joy.

“Living beautifully” is my MO, from engaging in self care to noticing all of the lovely things around me.  Living mindfully has helped me appreciate life on a whole new level, and it doesn’t take much to live a beautiful life.

Here are a few things that will help you live beautifully, too.

1.  Go for a morning walk.  Whether you are able to enjoy time in nature or breathe in the city air, being outside lifts your spirits and gets you moving in the morning.

2.  Arrange a bouquet- either from your front yard or the local florist- to display at home. There’s nothing like fresh flowers to brighten your soul and create a stylish home.

3.  Create a cozy environment with pieces near and dear to your heart.  Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world!  Adding personal touches is important when decorating your little zen den.

4.  Indulge in a tasty tea or hibiscus drink the next time you go out for errands.  Even day-to-day tasks such as going to the bank or post office can be fun when you have something to look forward to.

5.  Use a pretty day planner.  I LOVE crossing items off my to-do list, and having a cute agenda makes daily life less daunting.

6. Embrace your inner goddess by creating a self-care routine each morning. I invested in a Jade roller, cocoa butter cream, and luxurious face serum to start my morning off right after taking a shower.  Bring the spa home!

7.  Drink from your favorite cup.  I have a great variety of mugs and glasses to make my morning coffee or seltzer water feel like a special treat.  Enjoy it!

What do you do to live beautifully?  Let me know!
