listen if you dare.
Kiss your own fingertips
and hug your own curves.
You are made of waves and honey
and spicy peppers when it is necessary.
You are a goddess,
I hope you haven’t forgotten.
- Emery Allen
You know, if your body disgusts you now, it will disgust you after you've lost 20 pounds, after you've toned your abs, after you've developed your glutes. If you can't see your body as an extraordinary feat of biology, by virtue of being alive and having got you here, as having risen to amazing demands upon it, as being warm living flesh wonderfully reassuring to touch, and as creating heartbreakingly beautiful lines, gleams, and shadows – right now – then my advice would be, fix that problem first.
And it's relatively easy to fix. Really.
Just go out and practice. Look at people, touch them if that's allowed in your culture, and practice thinking about how wonderful they are, how much you enjoy their skin, their hair, their grace of movement. Practice. You don't need to carry this poisonous judgmental attitude one step further. Just drop it now. It will never serve you. Never. It's not keeping you from "going to pot." It's just a cup of media-stirred poison. Don't drink that crap.

She's such a delight as she reclaims her spontaneity.
It is the gift of her unpeeling the projections of others on her. They had sat around her body like heavy veils, blanking out the sunshine, making her existance heavy & dreary.
One by one, she's stripping off the old clothing of expectations of how she should be , who she should be. In her emergence, she's upsetting the apple cart, forcing others around her to shift, take responsibility, own back their projections that they dumped on her. She is so done with complying so that others feel comfortable.
They know they have no power over her when their rewards for her compliance do not lure her anymore. She will not be cramped or constricted for anything. She will be free.
She is enjoying the power of her spontaneity because it connects her with Spirit, and when Spirit bursts forth through her, it transforms the worn out, tattered beliefs, thought patterns & habitual actions. The old dies to the new. Spontaneity always brings inspiration, freshness & new life.
Here she stands, unpeeled and free!
