Growing up, we’re taught all kinds of rules on how a woman is supposed to behave. She’s supposed to look a certain way, she puts herself second to others’ needs, she takes care of everyone and everything around her, she doesn’t cuss, she cooks and cleans, and so on and so on.
I say, f^ck that.
To put it simply, I believe to be a strong woman is about having faith in herself, which is reflected in everything she does. This is easier said than done, no thanks to all the messages that are drilled into us throughout our lives. Now, there’s nothing wrong with doing things like cooking (I enjoy cooking, despite the often dismal results). What I’m saying is to do what you love, not what you’re expected to do. Being strong is about sifting through all the noise and discovering you.
Have you ever felt that you’re just going through the motions, that you’re missing something in your life? I challenge you to take a step back (try to take a day off for yourself if possible) to focus on you: What makes your heart beat? What’s important to you? Is there a chasm between those two answers and what your current life looks like? Take a hard look, and you’ll discover that some small changes could help you discover—or rediscover—your own kickassitude—and replace that empty feeling with something much more fulfilling.
She stole his fate…
Lachesis is a Fate, an ancient goddess in whose hands our destinies are unraveled. When she’s not weaving fortune, she does what she wants when she wants. That all changes when she runs into the man she craves but prayed to never see again. And she'll soon discover the god of terror can really hold a grudge.
Now it’s his turn…
The most frightening of gods, Phobos is a predator who takes pleasure in terrorizing the world. After millennia of relentless searching, he finds the Fate who caused him to be cast down from Olympus. Now he plans to use every bit of his talents on the goddess to regain his lost heritage without losing his heart in the process
