About This Quiz

One of the things that modern life tends to beat out of us as often as it can is any sense of the divine or miraculous in the world. It's constantly telling us that what we earn is the measure of who we are, or whether we're conventionally beautiful is a good way to assess our value. We get so caught up in paperwork, bills, commuting and just the miseries of the rat race that we don't have time to look inward. Even our inner selves are supposed to be commoditized and presented on social media, always in a highly curated manner that makes us look way cooler than we are.

However, the world is still full of wonderful things, and it's important to never forget that. Our inner flicker of divine fire, that goddess who is still connected to all that is valuable about us but that cannot be easily measured and put into a graph, is there to remind us that we are more than just our paycheck or our looks. It's there to say that we are good enough, that we deserve to be treated respectfully, and that maybe we cannot save the whole world, but we can change one little corner of it. We just have to take a moment to listen to her - and perhaps she'll be stronger than we thought. Is your inner goddess ready to unleash on the world? Let's find out!
