Today is ‘officially’ Mother’s Day. But let’s get real. Every day is Mother’s Day. Meaning: every single day we mother, we are mothered, we are loving, we are loved, we are our children’s mothers, we have our own mothers, aunts, sisters, friends, mentors, and incredibly brilliant women in our lives that brilliantly impact our lives,…
To all my women, to all my girls, to all the men – THIS. IS. HOW. YOU. MAKE. AN. EMPOWERED. MESSAGE! Congratulations Audi!
It’s been a thrilling, exciting and yes, empowering journey…and today a MAJOR step as THE EMPOWERED MOM TV debuts! And The Empowered Mom Family of Companies continues its growth. Check this out: So, yes, it’s just a bit of a tease – that’s why the video on my phone was blurry- you have to tune…
“JUST a Mom?” “Oh, you don’t work?” If one more person would’ve said those phrases- I might seriously go all Italian on them! Going from a high-profile, public career as an anchor and reporter to having 3 babies within 21 months-(yes, a set of twins in that mix)-to caring for 3 infants was, let’s just…
How are we possibly supposed to it all? All this empowering stuff? Well, we drop the perfectionism! And replace it with EMPOWERMENT! We are about to tape The Empowered Mom TV segments – and there’s still dirty laundry piled up. SO WHAT!! Just do one thing at a time, figure out what matters most –…
T-Rex Sex. And Other Fossil Fun.
Ever Feel Less Than Human?
As a mom (or dad), I know I do.
In fact, one of my boys reinforced that just the other night – telling me I sounded like a
And no, it wasn’t while I was in the bedroom. (Wait, I pause to think now…. was it? But I digress… )
“Momma! You sound like a T-Rex!!”
Yep!! (Now all 3 boys are hysterically laughing at me.)
Wow. Now THAT sounded particularly SEXY!
And the first thing I thought of…. T-Rex Sex. Why? I’m not sure. It must be my demented mind.
They’re telling me how I sound and I’m thinking of sex.
Here’s the skinny…
|SUPERWOMAN’S CAPE IS NOW HER STRAIGHTJACKET — EMPOWER THE CAPE
By: Maria Luce
See, here’s how it happens. She thought she could do it. And do it ALL.But then when she tried to fly and:
SUPERWOMAN GOT HER CAPE WRAPPED AROUND HER NECK.
Time to use your vast array of SUPER-POWERS and EMPOWER YOURSELF.
How many times do you find yourself slipping into the dreaded “I-have-to-be-Superwoman” thinking? Must do it all, must be perfect, and must look good doing it. — Oh! And smile… Yes, THAT thinking. Ever find yourself there?
That cape of yours you think is so darn cute and – not to mention – you look incredible HOT and SEXY in — no, it’s actually like 4 sizes too small, is SO antiquated and idiotic – it’s reminiscent of the corset… and remember, women PASSED OUT and nearly died from those whale-bones-disguised-as-fashion.
Same thing with the Superwoman cape. Screw the cape, I say.
The REAL Superwoman gets help! No, not mental help. (Though, some superheroes have been seen slipping into the nearest padded room with the cape magically transformed into a straightjacket.)
The REAL SUPERWOMEN have MIGHTY POWERS: here it is….. ready?
EMPOWERED PARTNERS I am SO EXCITED to share this with everyone!! I am Crazy About It! So many cool, exciting and FABULOUS things have happened in such a short time at The Empowered Mom! One is the discovery of the fantastic company: Empowered Clothing Company. I want to introduce you to them. Here’s their thinking: We LIVE ON…
So You Want To Talk Empowered?
I packed the hubbs on a plane to Kansas City and off we went this past weekend to figure out this whole bloggy thing I have been doing for several weeks. It’s about time, huh?
We went to something called WordCamp KC. WordCamps are community organized meetings for users of WordPress – the blogging platform that I use. The Organizers, Jacob McDaniel, Josepha Haden and Val Bontrager compiled their thoughts, ideas, and flawlessly executed a WordCamp the first time they tried it. All of these folks are pretty cool people I quickly found out. One of the brightest people at the conference was Syed Balhis – a 20 something kid that appears to have forgotten more about blogging than I have learned. Very fun and entertaining presenter as well.
Wasn’t really sure what was going to happen at this so-called WordCamp. Having never been to one – I thought here I go – just put myself out there and see what sticks. I was really impressed.
Sure there were a bunch of tech geeks at the thing. But Jacob and Josepha did a great job keeping the content people separated from the developers. And that allowed the novices like me to learn a bunch of new stuff.
So here it is – what I learned at (Word) Camp this week:
We got CRAZY over the weekend!
CrazyWithACause℠ that is – and this time it was a fabulous weekend of GIVING, GIFTING and GOLFING.
Oooooh child! Let me tell you – the STARS and Celebs were out in force – and rocking the red carpet at the glittering gala!
I’m so excited I was able to take part and to help out with Media coverage…. check out some of the other juicy details with my exclusive behind-the-scenes access.
But Friday night was just the tip beginning of a star-studded affair, the excitement was only just beginning and you won’t believe all the events.
