I just read that the word literally has an updated definition in the dictionary. So many people were using it incorrectly (as in how they use figuratively) that we’ve literally changed the meaning of the word. Isn’t that crazy?

Another thing we’ve accepted as the norm is that career transition is a part of life. In fact, most people will have anywhere from 7-12 jobs in their lifetime. That’s a lot of change!

Because job transition is totally within my sweet spot having been a former recruiter, hiring manager and boss, I’ve decided to dedicate the next few posts to supporting you in your inevitable job search by providing insider knowledge on the process.

Hopefully if you’re quitting your job it’s for another one and you’ve thought it through. Often we see a higher salary or a dreamy office environment and are quick to decide that it must be a better opportunity.

In order to be sure about that, get clear on what you’re moving toward and away from and why.

Change is inevitable but that doesn’t mean we should take it lightly. Each move should be strategic, slowly writing your career story over time.

To that I ask: What bearing does her motherhood have on her right to sexualize herself?

We’re entitled to our opinions, absolutely, but when we get into public forums and shame each other, we perpetuate the cat-fight stereotype which sets our gender back. Instead we ought to accept that we’re entitled to make lifestyle choices that feel right to us and we should honor those in others and ourselves.

For me the issue isn’t her ass, it’s the selectivity of feminism.

Yesterday I was really sick; the kind that meant I was in bed all day watching Netflix movies. I landed on Behind the Candelabra, the Liberace movie. Have you seen it?

I was hooked. The craziest bit was how Liberace (Michael Douglas) had his boyfriend Scott (Matt Damon) get plastic surgery so his face would look more like his own. And he did it!

Imagine being so caught up to make such a wildly ridiculous decision. In a totally unexpected twist (mmhmm), he later regretted it. Sorry, you’re stuck with that face now, Scotty boy! It’s a good thing that hair is so luscious…

Somehow, I could relate. Don’t get me wrong, I was never asked to perform a “face off” but I did change for my job.  [click to continue…]
