How many times have you found yourself in the cocoon stage, ladies? You know that phase of transformation where you’re prepping for the grand reveal?

In a world where historical narratives often glorify male strength and dominance, it's essential to pause and reflect on the intrinsic value of every individual, regardless of gender. As I sat contemplating the significance of having a granddaughter, I couldn't help but confront the unsettling reality of how society has long prioritized boys over girls. Throughout history, the preference for male offspring has been deeply ingrained in many cultures. Sons were seen as heirs, protectors, and carriers of family legacies, while daughters were often undervalued, viewed as burdens, or even subjected to infanticide in extreme [...]

Motherhood is a journey that spans a lifetime, weaving intricate tapestries of love, sacrifice, challenges, triumphs, and embarrassments, to name a few! Each mom's story is unique, absent a one-size-fits-all manual or a perfect set of predefined tools for greatness. Some of us have experienced an overwhelming amount of joy and pride at our children’s accomplishments, while others have experienced inexplicable tragedies or loss that, unless you've experienced it too, there's no way to relate. I also believe [...]

DECEMBER 2023: DIRTY vs. MESSY. THE FINE LINE.

  During a recent girls' get-together, our lively conversation took an unexpected turn into a debate on the distinctions between "dirty" and "messy." One guest vented about her sister's "dirty" habits, while another chimed in about her own "messy tendencies." As the conversation intensified, a third woman posed a thought-provoking question: What's the real difference between messy and dirty? As we approach the New Year striving to be our best selves,I found the takeaways from this discussion worth sharing with the TW community.

Publisher’s Blog: November 2023

"Don’t Match Their Energy" Have you ever encountered someone who did something so hurtful that your initial reaction was to retaliate? Yet, as anger welled up within you, did you ever feel like you were losing sight of your true self? It wasn’t until recently that I realized I don’t have to reciprocate energy I don’t admire. It’s effortless for someone to disrupt a room’s harmony with their negative energy. It’s astonishing how their negativity can rebound and affect those around them, even when we’re simply minding our own business. Tony Robbins once [...]
