They do not say to the minor gods, "Oh, you choose the DVD," when they know perfectly well that they really want to watch that good looking Chris Pine in Star Trek.
Take, for example, Daphne. Daphne was a Greek goddess, the daughter of a river god. She was not a particularly important goddess. She did not, for instance, have a throne on Mount Olympus. Still, when the totally major stud god Apollo fell in love with her, she was not impressed. She didn't care that he was god of the sun. She didn't care that he invented music. Those things may have impressed the gals in Athens, but Daphne was a goddess. She did not need to define herself through him.
When he said, "Hey babe, how about a ride in my golden chariot," she was all, "Get lost, Bozo. I don't need an oracle to tell me you say that to all the girls." She may as well have given him a love potion. Her indifference fanned his passion until he went totally stalker on her. She had to turn herself into a Laurel tree just to be rid of him, but as a nature-loving free spirit she did not mind the decreased mobility for, as the saying goes, "better to be a tree, than a girl who isn't free."
Channel this goddess: When you are tired of people telling you who you are supposed to be or how you are supposed to act. Remember: stubborn is just another word for determined, hyper is just another word for enthusiastic, and easily bored just means that you won't put up with what what is boring and predictable. You are good enough. Don't change for anyone.
Mary: This goddess is for you. Happy Birthday!
