Welcome to my blog!
Aren’t we all like that giant of the forest? Don’t we manage somehow to survive the rare storms and avalanches and lightning blast of life, only to let our hearts be eaten out by little beetles of worry—- little beetles that could be crushed between a finger and a thumb?

I am a Millennial Arachidamia. A modern day warrior.
First of all let me introduce to you Arachidamia.
Arachidamia (Greek: Αραχιδάμεια) is a Sparta Queen. Sparta was a prominent city-state in ancient Greece. Sparta was recognized as the overall leader of the combined Greek forces during the Greco-Persian War.
According to Wikipedia, she was a famous and wealthy Sparta Queen. Arachidamia was a strong Sparta lady, the wife of Eudamidas I. She was responsible for empowering the women of Sparta against Pyrrhus during his siege of Lacedaeomon in the 3rd century BC. The Gerousia decided that the Spartan women should be quickly moved to Crete for their safety. Arachidamia, however, “with a sword in her hand,” she marched in front of the Gerousia and fought as to whether women were expected to survive this battle.
Consequently, Arachidamia may have helped to shape how women were viewed in the future in Sparta and the world in general at present times. (Arachidamia)
GEOGRAPHY: Sparta is located in the region of Laconia, in the south-eastern Peloponnese. Ancient Sparta was built on the banks of the Eurotas River, the main river of Laconia, which provided it with a source of fresh water. The valley of the Eurotas is a natural fortress, bounded to the west by Mt. Taygetus (2407 m) and to the east by Mt. Parnon (1935 m). To the north, Laconia is separated from Arcadia by hilly uplands reaching 1000 m in altitude. These natural defenses worked to Sparta’s advantage and contributed to Sparta never having been sacked. Though landlocked, Sparta had a harbor, Gytheio, on the Laconian Gulf.

PURPOSE: What am I fighting for? I fight against status quo, I fight against stereotyping, I fight against mediocrity, I fight against bullying, racial discrimination and I fight against abusing the environment.
DISCLAIMER: I am a non-political, non-partisan blogger. However, I support the accomplished governments who are performing their mandate well and who are “government of the people, by the people and for the people.” —(Part of Gettysburg Address – Speech by US President Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863)
Likened to the legendary Arachidamia, a Millennial Arachidamia is strong physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually as well as financially.
PHYSICALLY, a Millennial Arachidamia is physically fit and strong. She makes time to exercise and be physically fit despite the obligations of being a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sibling and a responsible member of the society. In this modern days, she can finish marathons, ultramarathons, triathlons and sparta races. She eats a balanced diet and does not support processed food for her family.
EMOTIONALLY, a Millennial Arachidamia is a warrior inside and out of herself. She can speaks up and stands up for what she believe in. She shuts her mouth up when she is wrong. She can control her emotions. She cries but at the end of the day, she wipes her tears and keep moving forward.
MENTALLY, she is wise yet humble. She is educated and willing to continuously educate herself. She follows and respects the rules of the modern day education system as well as wise in the real world. She does not think only inside the box, yet she thinks “out-of-the-box” ideas for herself and for others.
SPIRITUALLY, she prays hard to a Superpower and leap her faith up above. She has a soul that is more powerful than her worries, fears, doubts, failures, disappointments, guilt and other things beyond her human powers.
FINANCIALLY, a Millennial Arachidamia knows how to make abundance. She does not only make, she multiplies what she have. She look up to and get inspired to the stories of simple beginnings. The so called “Rags to Riches.”
A Millennial Arachidamia is the Modern Day Warrior.
Nowadays, a lot of problems are arising. The digital world made it more apparent. Conflicts are not only against other states but as well as within oneself.
A Millenial Arachidamia is symbol of hope to everyone. We are strong men and women and we can not be defeated by anyone or anything that is within ourselves.
