I am not as agile as I once was.
Every ache, muscle pull or tenderness is now a cause for concern. You can’t tell by looking at me or through basic interaction but I’m in my late forties and honestly, minus my heighten sense of physical awareness, I feel damn good!
Forty for me feels a bit like my twenties but with much more of a mature sense of how I view the world and a peaceful connection with gentle acceptance of my authentic self - cellulite and all!
Sadly, societal conditioning and unrealistic expectations that fuels a system riddled with prejudices that thrives on our self-doubts, have assisted in maintaining an array of discriminations. In this case, age discrimination.
I say “F” THEM ALL!
Fling away pressures that are not in alignment with your Higher Self.
Flick away notions and ideals of perfection.
Flouncy away in your power as you float on- in the pureness that is you!
Free yourself and be invisible to anything that does not come from a place of love.
Sending hugs and :::good vibrations filled with love, peace and power:::

It’s been quite awhile since my last post. I wasn’t inspired to share anything on here and I also wasn’t sure in which direction or what purpose this blog would actually fill.
Recently, there’s been a shift in my consideration of this blog, especially pertaining to the industry - with a large portion of the current industry climate pointing towards inclusion, diversity, self expression and what all of that actually looks like.
Now, couple the above with the fact that I post quiet a bit on IG Stories and love sharing my thoughts and views. However, those thoughts and views were only “valid” for 24hrs before they live on in IG archives. Today I hope to place regular consideration on posting and creating a space where my thoughts and views are able to live on for more than 24hrs.
