Year End – 2013 – Review

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

photo-3As each year has seemed in my REALLY complicated and interesting life, so too has been 2013 full of amazing happenings. This year has seen new home, success in ventures, books finally readied for publishing and quiet – don’t tell those often referenced delusional lie telling miscreants – feminist husband and I deciding on growing our family even further. Achievements and REAL concrete plans to right wrongs in the upcoming years a great comfort as well … more on that soon. Additions of friends and colleagues – more what we like to think of as extended family – has lessened our burdens and made possible that which we sought to accomplish both legally and in other venues now possible. Vague I must remain but trust me that 2013 has seen REAL and definitive actions that now open a glorious path for myself and my family. My blessings truly are a cup runneth over scenario … an embarrassment of riches is often how I describe my life. Having known REAL sorrow and loss, I remain fully aware  of what is of REAL importance and as such savour the moments of love and companionship each and every day has brought me this past year. There have been heroes and demons present – the good always outweighing the bad in my life somehow … I have champions at the ready to protect and defend my honor. Both biological family that we consider REALLY related and others that for years and more currently make up our rather large and diverse amazing extended family bring joyous celebrations and a solid foundation that helps us thrive. Each day my associates call to not only arrange the day but to be sure I am not in need of their attentions. Thousands of personal friends and social media contacts express affection and support for me on nearly a daily basis – humbled am I by their efforts. Too grand a description are you thinking? No not nearly as mine is a story full of “Oh My” relationships and moments. As we end this year, I wish for all REALLY good people the same – may you too be blessed with the grace of G-d and as I have in my life, his angels here on Earth!

P.S. Year end is here – as such and as mentioned in each of my blog essays, my first book, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! will be announced in papers and more over the next few weeks, with where available [bookstores and online]. This book includes a biographical introduction, a selection of my blog essays that define what and who I REALLY am and a prolgue that details what publisher is calling “the big book”, Life Journey of Heiress Mommy, due out July 2014. ALL in each book has been well documented – no topic nor reference has not been reviewed for 100% veracity. Intrigued I hope – see you at book signing events and hoping you will be watching, listening and reading my upcoming media interviews!

Does Miley Cyrus REALLY Matter?

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

mileyVMAMy husband and I are both feminists – each deeply concerned about what we believe is the REAL growing war on women, both here in USA and around the world. Our philosophies in no way means either of us want to dictate choices to the female gender … Free to be as one wishes should rule the day. This includes expressions of beauty and sexuality for women; however, as my wise husband stated after seeing news reports about the Miley Cyrus VMA performance:This is a case of women making their position in our culture more vulnerable and diminishes women’s values therein !”   [see why I adore this man].

I am frequently reminding folks that business comes after the word, ‘show’ in reference to the entertainment industry. Profit is the assumed motive for any product – so if it sells, well now then it makes perfect sense to do it. The faux outrage about moral standards in reaction to vulgarity is frequently misplaced – shut the television off, do not go to see the film, do not buy the music, etc. is my standard advice. As far as role models for our children – my husband and I are that   and only those we decide as such for our children – not stars or sports figures. True, I worry about those youngsters without parents to guide them and insist the one common denominator of school take up that task.

My REAL fear is that young women are defining themselves singularly by appearance and sexual desirability. This syndrome can be delineated as a consequence of movies, television and magazines representation of the female ideal. We feminists struggle mightily to teach an alternative as possibility for life where all aspects of life prove a healthy and fulfilling direction. Having it all means attending to and developing all parts of your person. Mind, body and soul need tending to and females are lessened by suggestive demonstrations like that of Ms. Cyrus this week – not because it was sexy but instead because it was simply not entertaining, just offensively vulgar. True art that includes a grown up woman being desirable must combine respectful and tasteful representation of the full female gender. This “twerking” behavior has the potential to put young women at risk when they try to emulate Ms. Cyrus and the young women are not in a committed relationship. In today’s world, sometimes even a committed relationship is not enough protection for a woman who is attacked based upon her sexuality. Ms. Cyrus do you really want to be the root cause for another young woman’s misery when she attempts to emulate you in these public outlandish vulgar expressions?  I wish it did not matter.

P.S. In my memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life ! and follow up book, Life Journey of Heiress Mommy, all the REAL details of why my husband and I are so supportive of women’s rights will be shared. In the mean while, remember your mother was a woman!
