Women Are The Soil Of Our Culture

Where women go, men will follow.

I guarantee a majority of you saw this headline and flipped out and clicked on the article just to fuel your fire. So, assuming that's the case, let me assure you that I am not at all saying men can't make their own decisions, lead themselves, or be just as detrimental to our culture. Because men, you are and should be all of those things. But think about the amount of advertising that has a woman slapped to it. Or the commercials where beautiful women walk down a street in heels and get into the nice ritzy car. Okay, my point stands — women are the soil of our culture.

Women not only are slapped on advertising to act as selling points, but women are also the mothers, homemakers, caregivers, and constant of our families and communities. The standard of women becomes the standard of our societies, how we treat and respect others, and how we value things such as relationships and even sound morals.

And it's to no surprise that women today are under an insane attack by the devil himself. Women are being victimized, told their children are obstacles to their success, told their bodies are for pleasure and beauty, and told that in order to get anywhere they have to shout from the rooftops and demand things. Because here's the thing, Satan's smart. He knows if he can get the women, the rest of society follows. Everything break downs and the standard for life, respect, and dignity get clouded.

We see it every day — women now want to be just like men, while also telling men that they don't want men to be men. Read that again if you need to cause it's just as confusing as it sounds. But it's true. Women, while in an effort to be the same as men, step on top of men and tell them they need to be less of a man. And here's the issue: if men are told that they're superfluous and not needed, men will say "okay I'll go home and play video games."

The Creator of man and woman Himself KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING when He made men and women different. He knew the world needed a being who was stronger physically and desires to lead, pursue, and protect. That same Creator ALSO KNEW that the world needed a being who was gentle, caring, loving, and beautifully designed just so that we could get a glimpse of His insane goodness. Why on earth would we try to tamper with that? And why on earth wouldn't we fight to keep order, truth, and goodness?

Instead, we feed into the chaos that is our society today. There's no "man" and "woman" anymore. There are a million different labels and identities and self-proclaimed titles. Families are breaking down more than ever before, children are being killed in the womb, and abused and abandoned outside of the womb. Marriages are splitting rapidly, women are being used as objects and leaving their feminine nature behind. Men are taking longer and longer to "grow up" but can we blame them? We've told them they need to step down and calm down. Why is this even a religious argument at this point? Our world is chaos, mental illness is drastically increasing, the suicide rate is insanely high and we wonder why.

Let's start with our women. Let's build them up, change the way our society views them, and encourage them in their innate nature. I firmly believe if we can get that straight, our whole society and culture will follow.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
