Picasso once was quoted, "There are only two types of women- goddesses and doormats."
|Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’ by Pablo Picasso|
This can't be. We are either a wonderful mythical being or a place he wipes his work boots?
Let me explain.
Definition(s) of a goddess:
1. A female being of supernatural powers or attributes, believed in and worshiped by a people.
2. A female being believed to be the source of life and being and worshiped as the principal deity in various religions.
3. An image of a female supernatural being; an idol.
4. Something, such as fame or wealth, that is worshiped or idealized.
5. A woman of great beauty or grace.
Pshhh.. I wouldn't mind being referred to as a goddess..
Definitions are exactly what they are.. definitions. There is no emotional or 'real,' for lack of better word, meaning behind them.
Jennifer Aniston does Goddess right.
Take note ladies-
My thoughts on what a 'goddess' is:
1. She doesn't look to guys for approval.
She dresses for herself, acts like herself, sticks up for herself, and doesn't change her views or beliefs for anyone.. especially not for a guy.
2. She is confident.
She knows she's hot, she works it, has a kick-ass personality, and when she see's
stupid bitches ladies talking about her she knows it's because she is the bomb.com.
3. She is independent and strong.
She treats her man to dinner from time to time and there is not a shadow of a doubt that if she were alone she could handle it with grace and dignity.
4. Her glass is half full.
No negative Nancy here. You can call her Miss. Brightside.
[too corny? so sorry.]
5. The chase is not for her.
Chasing men is so elementary school playground. If a man wants to play games, he gets the boot.
6. She demands respect and respects in return.
Love thy neighbor. Nobody likes a bitch.
7. She is feminine.
She loves her jeans and t-shirts but you best believe she's wearing a little lacy number underneath and is sporting some mascara and lip gloss.
8. She prizes her sexuality.
She knows what she has and how to use it but reserves it for one man, and one man only. Parading around town with your tata's hanging out is not cute gals.
9. She always has time for her girls.
Men will walk in and out of your life, but your girlfriends are they forever.
10. She doesn't let a man define her happiness
The most important rule.. and totally self explanatory.
I post this because I have been reading a lot of blogs lately where girls are having troubles with their guys. I thought relationship problems were more of a summer thing? I bring this up because Andrew and I have been fighting a good bit lately too. By fighting, I really mean arguing. I know, we seem like we live in a fairy tale and everything's great.. well, as in every relationship, it's not all puppies and butterflies over here. While I wish I could spill my guts to yall and get your feedback/support, I know he wouldn't like that and the last thing I want is to cause more problems and not respect his privacy, so I won't. Let's just put it this way- we are arguing about things and talking out things and compromising about some other things that definitely need to be taken care of before we can have a real future together. I think it's a good thing and I know we are going to get through it but your prayers and happy thoughts are more than welcome. :)
Bottom line, don't get discouraged.. remember who you were before the relationship. Love yourself. Love your man. Compromise. Listen. Pray often. Be adults. Be understanding.
Be the girl he fell in love with.
This weekend.. release your inner goddess!
