My Birthday Gift to Women Around the World

First of all, it's not my birthday today but it's a comin' and instead of expecting to receive presents, I decided I wanted to give instead. Presents are most certainly welcome but that isn't my focus-not this time around.

For such a long time, i've been all about getting. What can I get? How much can I get? When can I get it? Not to say that there is anything wrong in wanting and receiving, but considering i've been all about building a business that helps others, my 'getting mode'…

Mistaken Women's Lib

I cannot be the only one...who sometimes realizes that as independent, as self assured, and as confident of a woman that I think I am, there are times that I am surprised by my need to be acknowledged for doing a job usually considered masculine.  How could a woman who want's to be treated as an equal in the world, and more importantly in my marriage, feel the need to receive the proverbial pat on the head by a man for a job well done...this is a mystery.…

From Zero to Hero - An Introduction

What is it about women- Is it their clothing? Makeup? Personality?

Over the years, there have been many misconceptions about women- stereotypes, to be exact. You may be familiar with some- a woman’s place is in the home cooking, cleaning and taking care of the family, while the man is at work making the money.

While these stereotypes still play a prominent role in society, women are now more powerful than ever before.

Case-in-point, Sara Blakely- she founded Spanx, which…

Handling the work-family stressors

It is no surprise that women face a huge amount of stressors once they enter the workforce, but it increases even more once they take on the challenge of having a family. Balancing work and family life isn’t so simple.

It becomes an even bigger problem for women who are not working high-income positions and taking on these extra roles.

In past research, women who have worked managerial positions have stated that they felt “isolated at work, exhibited Type A behavior and…

Wise Up About Menopause - Watch Hot Flash Havoc

By Marjie Killeen, Contributor- Midlife Wisdom

Hot flashes. Night sweats. Sleeplessness. Mood swings. Anxiety. Memory loss. Low Libido. It’s enough to make a woman crazy!

Historically, menopausal women were considered that and worse. In the Middle Ages they were burned at the stake as witches; in the 1700′s they were institutionalized as lunatics. Even today, many women view the phase so…

Feminism - You're Doing it Wrong

"The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance.…

Love Your Heart

Love Your Heart. Boss Mom on Heart Disease.
What is the number one killer of women? You may be surprised to know that it's not cancer but heart disease. The American Heart Association estimates that nearly 500,000 women die of heart disease each year. Frankly, I never gave much thought to this disease until my dearly beloved mother-in-law died suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack last month.…

My Apology

Last night I wrote a post about how much the women's revolution has angered me and the need for Two Income Households stampeding on the "family life". I did not mean to upset so many people. I am not going to

say that they all had it wrong, but I will say it was a poorly written

post if it upset so many people. My reasons for writing such a post was

to find out how working moms handled their lives emotionally and

mentally and to ask how much real quality time they get to…

Thanks for the mammaries . . . . (sorry)

Women are notorious for being able to bond in almost any circumstance - my husband is constantly amazed at the conversations I strike up with other women in check-out lines, airports, doctors' offices, any place where having to wait in one place creates an opportunity for temporary kinship, and we can talk about children, trying to lose weight, the cute earrings someone has on, or any number of subjects (whereas men seem limited to 'how about those Lakers!'). So it didn't surprise me when I… Continue

Lack of options for expectant mothers of the Central Coast?

This was originally posted on my blog at www.centralcoasttoday.com.



--



After having been here nearly 8 months, I am still in shock about the lack of options for expectant moms in central coast.



I have come to learn that there are a couple of hospitals, and one or two home-birth midwives in the area as far as birthing options, and THAT IS IT.



The nearest freestanding birth clinic… Continue
