Who Are you, Selene?
You know that song by Halsey, you know that one dark, Sexy. Castle used in the Huntsman movie…yeah okay good. Well, the line where she says, “There’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut.” Sit on that a minute. Even if you don’t know the song, just read this line. Say it out loud and tell me how it makes you feel?
Well, it pisses me off. We will get back to that in a moment.
You see it took me a while to 100% get here, to practice radical self-acceptance, but I did. See as a little girl I was the loving motherly type. I dreamed about love and what it would be like to feel and experience its power. I loved, love. Then I got a little older, and shit changed. Now I am fighting. Fighting to keep it together. Fighting to be heard. Fighting to keep a friend. I lost the lover in me, though. Then I found the Goddess and man she was amazing. This new power was unleashed in me and she was a walking, talking embodiment of self-confidence.
What does all of this have to do with you?
Well, separately these are all great but together a force to be reckoned with. So what does the Halsey line have to do with anything and why should you care? Because you are a fucking badass Goddess, but like me, some fuckstick (old man sitting on the throne) told you to be quiet. Don’t curse, cover up, don’t be brass, be a lady. On and on until you cut out literal pieces of yourself and are a fragmented person. I quit loving because I was made to believe it made me weak and wouldn’t get me anywhere except hurt. I quit fighting because I was confident everything was fine I didn’t need to push it, but something was missing. I needed that lover and that fighter. I need all of the pieces to be whole and I am done keeping MY pretty mouth shut.
We as women deal with more shit before we clock in for work than a man does in just 24 hours. But we have become so afraid of our own voices, our bodies and who we are because of someone, at some point told us that we should be afraid. We should be afraid of ourselves. We are powerful beyond compare. And that’s the problem.
Society is the man on the throne and we are those pretty little mouths, but I am done with that shit and you need to be too. Be the lover, the fighter, and the goddess. Let them see that you are not here for that shit. I designed the shirt with that in mind. I feel that every woman is a Goddess, but she’s also a fighter because she has to be to deal with the ridiculous shit in our lives. she’s also a lover because she cares. She gives a fuck and that’s important. When you wear your shirt I want you to feel powerful and confident. I want you to be reminded to be whole be the Lover.Fighter.Goddess and take back the throne that was stolen from you.
Are you ready to live the badass life you were destined to lead?
