Tiger Woods Keeps Rewriting The Record Books And Proves We Should Never Count Him Out

Tiger Woods, there is a reason that we call him ‘legend’, ‘the goat’, it's because he is. After his win last September it became expected that he should win another major. The last couple of weeks I started to expect it from him.

Yesterday's win was just proof that Tiger Woods still belongs in the game of golf. Not all did he win, but he won the Masters. He overcame years worth of back pain and knee injuries to get to yesterday’s victory.

This weekend we saw some of what Tiger is still capable of doing. He is still capable of competing at a high level and taking it to a find of great golfers. The Masters’ field is some of the best golfers in the world. Sunday's leaderboard was packed with some of the great names in golf currently. It had major Champions from last year and the last couple of years.

I think we all knew the last couple of months that Tiger Woods was onto something great. His ability to show up on Thursday ready to compete was amazing. He gave us so many wow moments last week. Some of the best shots from the Masters came from Tiger Woods. Heading into the weekend he showed us one of his best rounds.

Once Saturday got here he did not let up at all. That was the moment that we all realized that this is the year that Tiger Woods is going to win the Masters, again.

Yesterdays win made it five green jackets for Tiger. It also made it his 15th major win. The significance to that is that he is only 3 away from tying Jack and 4 away from surpassing him on the most major win list. Now that we have seen him win the Masters yesterday it won't be long before he wins his next major.

He has a real shot at winning another major this year. He has a chance of winning at Bethpage and at Pebble Beach because of the history that he has at these golf courses. With 4 PGA Championship and 3 U.S. Open wins, there is a good chance that he could win one again this year.

Tiger’s win yesterday does so much for the game of golf. It shows people how much mental preparation goes into the game and what it takes to compete at this level. He brings notice and recognition to the game. With everything that he has been through the last few years, he saw the world what he is capable of doing. He showed the world that the old Tiger is back and he is ready to take it to the younger golfers and some of the great golfers of this generation.

It was just amazing to see where Tiger has come from in the last few years. From thinking that it was time to retire to getting his 81st win on the PGA Tour. It changes the mindset of how we have to view Tiger Woods now.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
