Woman Wednesday: Cynthia


Q and A with Cynthia from Malta, Europe, living in Ibiza, Spain

“Don’t let go of your vision.”


Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: My passions are wild and colorful. Travel has been my first passion, and although I’m traveling less currently, this is when I feel most alive. I have been passionate about using our full potential doing what we love, since very young. Coming up with creative ideas for the sole purpose to experience wild breakthroughs is my ultimate enjoyment. I have been immersed in yoga for the last 20 years, and this deep connection with oneself started from here.


Q: What were your younger years like?

A: Although I had a happy childhood, things turned less so in my 20s when my parents separated. I was brought up in Malta in a very academic school with not much outlet for creative space. Even though I was left to explore my love of travel and adventure since very young, my dad supported me in more masculine subjects which led me to years of soul searching, “what shall I do with my life?” One example was both my sister and I studied piano. She was an excellent pianist. I wasn’t, or shall I say, not in the strict way I was taught. Studying piano frustrated me immensely, but I still had to sit for one hour per day studying excruciatingly boring scales. My parents talking about my frustrations to friends and family certainly didn’t help with the “something is wrong with me” implications of this. I now know (after much digging in and searching inwards), this was all meant for me to lead me to this path of transformation and spiritual awakening and helping others do the same.


Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: For years, I struggled to see who I truly am. Being in a masculine role since I was very young, I lost touch with my feminine (but powerful) side. This led me to choose a career in banking that was soul-sucking and took me a very long time to realize I’m actually a creative person. I am now so passionate about helping women find their purpose in life and, with their zone of genius, they can create wildly successful businesses, creating the income and impact that they desire (whilst still managing a family). Even if you’re stuck for years and years, don’t let go of your vision to create your mission.


Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: OMG! It is such a broad term in my opinion. Feminism for me is the women rising above and beyond their minds. I still feel that mum and dad have their place in the household and to a certain extent during childbearing years, his might be unavoidable. But we women need to rise above societal norms of “he can’t take care of the kids and house all by himself” whereas it’s totally fine for women to. I’m still so disappointed our partner/husband earns more than us, and we accept our role as a housekeeper instead of a rising Goddess. This is the time for more women to make more money, so we can make more impact and create communities.

Q and A with Emily, Denmark

“I hope others will read this and find out for themselves that there is a whole life out there to be lived. No matter what and how much has been taken away from you, maybe you’ll never get over it, but you can get on!”

 

Q: What is your story?

A: Hi! I’m Emily and I live in Denmark, Europe.

I learned from an early age that you never ever say “no” to people, and I learned to never think for myself. From when I was about 4 years old and till I was about 16-18, my parents cruelly abused me both physically and emotionally. I learned to become invisible and to not be noticed, and my life was a living hell. I’ve been living with anxiety and depression ever since.

As an adult, I’ve discovered that I’m quite creative and I like a lot of things, and my biggest passion is jewelry–the making of it. At some point, we had a break-in, and among other items, all of my jewelry got stolen. I was devastated and swore that from then on, I would never ever buy myself a new piece of jewelry ever again, and that I would make everything myself. I’ve kept that promise ever since.

I started out small with a few pairs of earrings, and things have really changed since then. I decided to learn all that I could about jewelry making and to constantly better myself. I still have a long way to go, but I’d dare say I am actually excellent at what I do, and I’ve never ever had any help in learning. I’ve done it all myself, and that is what I am most proud of.

My all-time fave female singer, whom I have the pleasure of knowing in person, is the first person ever to say “I believe in you and I know you can do it.” She introduced me to “LAW OF ATTRACTION,” and though I still have bad days, it is changing everything for me one small step at a time.

I can do many different styles of jewelry, and I’ve fallen absolutely head over heels in love with the Japanese style called KAWAII. Kawaii is a Japanese expression for “CUTE.” And Kawaii IS cute. Its pretty colours, its cats, its pink, its glitter, its…..[you get the idea]. So, I started making Kawaii jewelry, and I know now that it’s exactly the right thing for me. So, I’ve recently started selling online, and I hope to make a living on it.

I hope others will read this and find out for themselves that there is a whole life out there to be lived. No matter what and how much has been taken away from you, maybe you’ll never get over it, but you can get on!

I am slowly finding my kind of power and getting ready to start living – living the life that I should’ve had, but never got.

Q and A with World Traveler Stacy (traveler of over 40 countries), The Sunshine State of Florida

“My favorite quote is “There’s a sunrise and sunset in every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss any of them.”

 

 

Q: What are you passionate about?

A: I’m passionate about seeing as much as possible of the Earth and sharing it with others. I love exploring new places, seeing nature, and being in a new culture. Sunrises and sunsets are my absolute favorite! My favorite quote is “There’s a sunrise and sunset in every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss any of them.”

I currently work for a large school district in Florida and love my job.

Being able to work with kids, I’m able to instill my love of travel and inspire them from an early age.

Q: What were your younger years like?

A: We didn’t travel much as a family when I was young because of financial issues. When I was in my early twenties, I began exploring and found my true love for travel. I’ve never looked back! I would say my big trip in my 20s was Ireland. It was my first non-tour or “family” trip and opened my eyes to all the ways of exploring the world.

Q: What does feminism mean to you?
