Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Girl Power! Five Movies That Will Make You Feel Fabulous

Five Feel-Good Chick Flicks

1. The Devil Wears Prada  2. Disney's Brave  3. Mirror Mirror  4. Katy Perry: Part of Me  5. Pitch Perfect

It's a ritual in my home to watch movies every weekend. It's the perfect way to snuggle up and unwind, and if you're in a funk, it's the perfect way to perk up. These are some of my favorite girl-power movies. I know, some of them seem cheesy, but they all have one central theme - a strong gal who works hard to get what she wants. The Devil Wears Prada is a movie I could watch over and over. Brave is a great family-movie option if you like to spend movie night with the little ones (like I do). And I have to say, while I rented the Katy Perry movie for my oldest daughter, I ended up loving it. It shows how she didn't become a success overnight, but rather worked hard for years and years and continues to work extremely hard for the success that she has. Mirror Mirror starring Lilly Collins is another great family movie that both kids and adults can enjoy. Pitch Perfect is cheesy but in a good way. It's a cute and funny movie that is guaranteed to boost your mood.

Have you seen any of these? Which one is your favorite?

  1. I haven't seen any of them.

    I always did wonder if Katy Perry was insane for a year or so. It's the only way she could have put up with being with that clusterwanker Russell Brand...
