Is Self-Care Selfish?

Jul 25, 2019

Dear Imaginative Woman,

I'm watching season 4 of Queer Eye this week, and I've been a blubbering mess through each episode. They get me every time!!

I was particularly struck by the first episode, where the Fab 5 made over a high school teacher.

This teacher had devoted her life to the service of others for over 30 years.

She worked late into the night, every night, never taking time for vacations, deep rest, or self-care.

In the episode she said she believed any time...

The Unexpected Solution To Your Misery & Ennui

Jul 19, 2019

Dear Imaginative Woman,

The first big loss of my True Self happened when I was 10.

I remember being on the playground at recess and talking to some girls.

They asked what I had done over the weekend, and I told them.

I had watched Saturday Morning Cartoons: Gummy Bears, Bugs Bunny, Inspector Gadget. You know, the usual.

I was shocked when they all looked at me with derision. Somehow, over the course of a weekend, cartoons become little kid stuff. They were no longer cool, at all.

I was...

How To Have a Wildly Authentic Summer Vacation

Jul 11, 2019

Dear Imaginative Woman,

My ideal vacation is sitting in a beautiful spot and reading books for days.

I don't like to do too much driving or activity. I love a full-immersion rest.

My husband, however, loves vacations full of activity. He wants to learn, explore, and be on a full-immersion adventure.

For years, I've done vacations with my husband as big adventures, because once he starts talking about the things we can see in the world, I don't want to miss out on any of it!

How Shame Made Me Hide My True Self

Jun 27, 2019

Dear Imaginative Woman,

When I worked at my office job, I didn't find much space for being my True Self. 

This was because my main interests were in personal development, the healing journey, philosophy, magic, and mysticism, and I was a database manager.

I had opted into a career where, for the most part, I wasn't able to talk about my interests to the people I was surrounded by 40+ hours a week.

I was in a technical, logical community, when what I craved was magic.

Every day as I...

A Scaredy Cat Goes On An Adventure

Jun 20, 2019

Dear Imaginative Woman,

Last week I wrapped up my series on how I came to decide to quit my Dull Gray Cubicle job.

I wanted to dive into this decision in a deep way to illuminate just how important reconnecting to your true self is on this journey.

I wasn't able to figure out what I wanted to do instead of my DGC job until I felt at least a tiny bit like myself again.

It was then that I was able to make decisions from a place of authenticity, which is why I've now become a...
