How Getting Naked Really Did Make Me Feel Empowered

Over the years since I left the adult industry, I have hidden my body away. I covered up. I got more conservative as befits a mother, or so I thought. And I lost some of my sense of self. I lost some sense of myself as a beautiful, sexual woman. I lost connection to a certain part of myself.

Incredible!

If we had to sum Leg 1 up in a single word, it would be 'incredible'. In the 27 days between Alicante and Cape Town we really did see a bit of everything. There were good days and bad days; it was up and down, windy and light, sunny and raining. A true test of our abilities as a team, and an amazing way to begin this epic journey.

Seven Reasons Why Some People Will Never Succeed

There are no short cuts to any place worth going. Making changes that are tangible come from yourself. Ask yourself this: 'Am I on the right route to get to where I want to be or am I aimlessly wandering around, stuck because it's safe and familiar?' Do you have a strategy for your life? Do you know the rules of the game and have a map, a plan and a timeline?

The idea of getting older and entering a whole new decade can be daunting when the focus is on attempting to adhere to social standards determined by age. However, when we do away with the sets of lists and various expectations, which are age dependent, we are able to embrace where we are and look forward to where we are going.

I have not done this quickly either and the project is very much ongoing. Four months or thereabouts in, the benefits of being more like my former trim self are beginning to become apparent. Along with the jeans a plethora of other favourite garments banished to the nether regions of my wardrobe are now reinstated for everyday wear.

I have carried our the same research with over 1200 participants and the answer is clear! reveals that success for women definitely includes the Third Matrix as much as career and financial success. Here's a few examples:

Looking to Achieve Certainty in Life? Embrace the Unknown Through Imaginative Meditation

For me, breaking old mind patterns has led me to cut my office days, giving me the time to witness the seasons as they pass, to cook from scratch, to practice my Spanish, begin writing, and meet my boyfriend with whom I'm now buying a home.

13 days in and we're not half way yet?! Sure it's hard to wrap your head around--another 12-13 days.... 26 days in total. But see that's the best part, we all love it out here in our bubble. To race on Team SCA is what we've always wanted, it's what we've trained for, and it's what we're going to sail faster than the boys for!

When Did Feminism Become Weird?

I find Gwyneth Paltrow's goop website a bit weird or Donny Osmond's wig on last weeks Strictly Come Dancing, but feminism itself? If indeed there is something unnatural or unearthly about this so-called 'crossroads' we hashtag-feminists are tweeting at, is it right to finger-blame an entire movement? I'm not sure that it is, really.

Team SCA begins sailing around the world in the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race, a 39,750 nautical mile ocean race reaching 10 countries over the next nine months. On the boat we are sailing with 12 women, including one onboard reporter (that's me), but our sailing team is made up of 14 women - all incredibly strong and intelligent on the art of sailing offshore.

It has been so hectic here in Alicante, it seems like a moment ago that we arrived for the first time. For myself i'm really excited, it's an amazing story that I am about to tell and I can't wait to start telling it, we really are heading into a journey of the unknown and that's the most exciting part about it for all of us.

Women and Whaling: Scientifically Women Should be Mothers First, and Career Should Come Third (After Their Husband)

They don't blatantly say women should stay at home. Well they do, or to be precise they did, but since it was all too obvious, the public reaction forced them to become craftier at their messages. And, rather scientifically, as in whaling, the politicians turned toward actions and away from words.

We have recently arrived in Alicante and are finally gearing up for the biggest race of our lives - the Volvo Ocean Race. Covering approximately 39,000 nautical miles, the race will last for nine months across 10 legs from start to finish and Team SCA is the only all-woman crew competing.

Learning About Feminism: My Mum and Laurie Penny

My mum seemed to embody what I believed to be the stereotypically oppressed woman. In my youthful naivety, I assumed that nine to five employment was the sole source of female empowerment and that my mum had therefore abandoned any claim to feminism. I told her all this, of course, and she proceeded to correct my assumptions.

Journalism 101 for the Times of India: Boobs Aren't News

It's a sad day when I - a journalism student - am able to say with absolute confidence that I know more about what makes "news" than India's leading national paper. I don't mean to imply that I'm a journalism guru, but recent events have proved it's not very difficult for anyone to claim they have a better sense of the news agenda than the Times Of India.

2014 marks my tenth year attending the CGI. When former US President William J. Clinton first launched the initiative back in 2005, it broke down many of the silos that existed within the development community. Policy makers, academics, and private sector leaders began to have honest discussions. Relationships began, and partnerships emerged.
