Hello KG Goddesses! Who is super stoked about the 14k Gold launch this week?! I know I am! Our brand new collection is crafted from the finest solid gold & real genuine Sapphires, Pearls, Rubies, and Emeralds! These designs are truly fit for a goddess, just like yourself! With this being the theme for this week, I wanted to talk about true goddesses in history and ways you can tap into your own inner goddess!
Let’s start out with an actual Greek Goddess, Athena. Athena is known as the goddess of wisdom, reasoning, and intelligence. What really makes her one kickass babe is that she is known for being the goddess of war. Athena was actually born fully dressed in armor ready to fight after Zeus experienced a bad headache and she sprung from his head! She is known for ferocity in battle and always believed in fighting for justice and righteousness. She embodied compassion and generosity, which us here at KG truly believe are qualities of a queen!
The next goddess in history I want to mention is Emilia Earnhardt, what a badass! This chick woke up one day and said, “I am going to be the first woman to fly a plane across the ocean!” She set an incredible amount of records, wrote plenty of best selling books, and was a key player in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, which is an organization for female pilots. From a young age, Emilia always had a passion for adventure; she was only in her early 20s when she began setting records in aviation. She embodies the title of goddess particularly in the way that she was always challenging herself to accomplish bigger goals. In June 1937, she set out to be the first female to fly around the world but sadly, never returned. We will forever admire her courage, strength, and grit that make her the goddess she is!
Mother Teresa is the next lady on the list! She is a nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity, which stands as one of the leading establishments for free service to the poorest of the poor. This woman dedicated her life to serving others as her work, which impacted over 130 countries, managed homes for people who were dying, soup kitchens, orphanages, and schools. She worked selflessly, even in her later years as sickness struck, to serve society and respond to the needs of the poor. The whole of Mother Teresa’s life represents and shows us the joy of loving, the greatness and dignity of every human, and the value of little acts done with love. She embodies selfless, unconditional love – a trait of a true goddess!
Rosa Parks, a woman who stands up for what she believes in despite opposition, a goddess. In 1955, she refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white person to sit down. She challenged the race segregation that still existed in the south and sparked the civil rights movement, which in the 60s finally won equal rights.
Ellen DeGeneres. You cannot have a blog post in this day and age about goddesses and not mention Ellen DeGeneres. This woman is a true believer in equality for all regardless of faith, sexuality, color, or anything of the life. She is an inspiration to us all in valuing acceptance of who we are. She came out as a lesbian at a time in history where there was still very much so opposition to her sexuality. Her bravery and courage in coming out and accepting who she is while under attack of the media is truly admirable. Ellen is an exceptional businesswoman, entertainer, and leader. She uses the work she does to inspire others and give back, as she has donated great amounts to well over 44 charities to date. She is certainly a goddess, motivating each of us to be more kind, courageous and thoughtful!
All of the women I have mentioned embody traits that comprise a goddess. I encourage us all to take lessons from the lives they lived so we too can love one another selflessly, stand up to make a difference, and push ourselves to be better each and every day! Today, being a goddess means finding inner peace and leading an honest and authentic life while always empowering the feminine self. Here’s some tips I’ve come up with to help you work on becoming your best goddess each and every day!
- Embrace the power of femininity. Be compassionate, intuitive, and healing.
- Place value on creating a safe space where you feel comfortable. Sometimes we all need to disconnect from the demands of social life and sink into our sacuraty.
- Accept your feelings and emotions. Do not brush them aside; do whatever it takes to work through them!
- Mediate, mediate, mediate!! Simple breathing can lead to many benefits!
- Connect with Mother Nature!
- Take care of your body. Eat right, exercise, and work on mental health!
- Dress like a goddess! Wear clothes that make you feel good, not someone else.
- Make time for self-improvement. Take that online class, learn a new language, or sign up for the yoga studio!
- Believe in yourself. Have confidence in your strengths!
- Positive Affirmations. You are beautiful, you are strong, and you are worthy!
