AS THE SAYING GOES… EVERY BODY IS BEAUTIFUL.
Some days however this forty-four year mama of seven has a tough f-cking time loving the skin I am in.
Some days all I can see are the stretch marks,
that my breasts are not as perky as I wish they were.
All I see are the few extra pounds,
the “love handles” that I do not love.
The jiggle and the wiggle of what I want to be lean and firm.
All I see is how imperfect this skin is.
And here I AM…
Each day is a challenge to balance body well-being, work and motherhood.
Add in my desire to connect daily with my man and I find it often extremely difficult to stay focused on the practices that I know help me to love the skin that I am in and see my inner radiance and my sexyiness as a woman who has given life multiple times over.
Yesterday I felt GORGEOUS.
Today I struggle.
My children yelp for my attention.
They fight and bicker as siblings do.
I look about this house of mine with all the chores that need completed. My list grows ever longer with work items, clients that need attention, friends that need support, taxes that need finished, and laundry… there is always laundry and dishes.
Today I see nothing but the drudgery of this day.
Trapped here in this body that as I pass a mirror I am frustrated with.
The scale never says what I want.
The skinny jeans that I am holding on to with hope of fitting in once again are collecting dust as they nag me from my closet shelf.
I pass by a mirror,
check myself out,
That is today.
Yesterday, I was lean, strong, turned on and felt full of desire for life.
For my man.
For our future together.
I was a rapture of juiciness and love.
I stretched my body out in the clean white sheets of our bed,
feeling each muscle move and open.
I arched my back and opened my chest to the heavens and drew my man in to kiss on it.
I felt yummy.
I felt beautiful.
I wanted to be in my skin.
And with that love and want my day was smooth and peaceful, passionate and fulfilling.
I felt no hast.
Only good vibes.
That was yesterday.
I am all of this, all the time.
As each woman is.
Our bodies and how we feel in them from waking to falling back asleep again has a radical impact on our life views and the energy that we put out into this world.
When we women feel yummy and juicy in our bodies.
When we are turned on to life, to our partners and to ourselves,
our worlds are juicy and supportive of our natural creative abilities.
Our view on life is expansive and we are strong in whom we are.
When we love the skin that we are in.
We are powerful.
EVERY BODY IS BEAUTIFUL.
And this is very true.
Our tiger stripes of pride,
our crows feet of laughter and wisdom.
Every grey hair and random hormone one that pops up where hair should never be.
We wrestle with our ego’s.
We fear that we are not desirable.
if we are not what we deem perfect.
See the world appreciating on social media, magazines and TV.
Real or fake.
Depending on what season we are in,
we are told what our beauty standards should be and how we should aim to meet them.
To be beautiful is to be young?
To be beautiful is to be slim?
To be muscular?
TO BE BEAUTIFUL IN TRUTH IS A FEELING.
It is nothing that our bodies will ever look like.
Never measure up to.
It is not a weight on a scale.
It is not to mimic our favorite celebrity or model.
It is a feeling.
And no one on this planet can make us feel that way permanently.
when our men look at us with love and adoration,
Do you truly believe that they see all our flaws?
Do you believe that they care that your makeup is not perfect?
Your hair needs attention?
That you are not revealing your most perfect pose,
(you know that one that you practice for selfies).
They see your beauty.
And not just your inner beauty.
They stand in awe at the goddess that they have in their life.
They are in love and desire for how our glance makes them feel.
They love watching us move.
Even the wiggle and the jiggle.
They love those little laugh lines they helped put upon your beautiful face.
They love the strength of your body.
How they can get lost in our touch.
And that feeling of beauty that they give to us…
That is our true radiance.
They are helping us to access WHO WE REALLY ARE.
They make it easy to be in alignment with our SOUL.
With our true beauty.
Because they don’t see our fear of imperfection.
They know our truth.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL.
Love the skin you’re in.
And be compassionate to your heart, mind and body the days you do not.
WOMAN YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
