Sensuality and Age

I'm 41, have had two children and my body has been through the wringer healthwise. Is there anything I want to change about my looks? Definitely. Make me taller, give me back my perky breasts, flatten my belly, give me longer fingers...please...just to name a few.

Is there anything I want to change about myself? Definitely. Give me more patience, teach me how to tone down my opinions at times, make me put myself first more often, make me feel safer in bringing out the gentler side of myself...please...just to name a few.

While I'm at it...a maid and a personal massuese would be nice.

But, am I happy with myself? Definitely. I love me. REALLY love me. And yes I care about my looks and yes I care about the things that need work...but they don't matter, because they are all part of me, and I love me...the good, the bad and the could be better.

And having reached this stage of my life - where I am comfortable in my own skin - I find that I feel the most sensual than I ever have before. Sure, when in my twenties I was cute and sexy and I loved it. But I don't think I ever felt this soul-deep sensuality that I feel today. The sort that oozes.

And it's not totally about acceptance, for there are things about me, physically and personality wise, that I don't accept and want to change. It's more about the knowing. I know who I am, what I am, where I have been, where I want to go...and where I am going. I know all there is about me...and that gives me a confidence that I've never felt before.

So, I don't need thongs, don't need perky breasts *sigh*, don't need a flat belly, because what I've got is me...and me, while far from perfect and still a work in ME!

There is such a difference between being sexy and being sensual. And being sensual is far more sexy.

Your attitude towards acceptance, your confidence, your compassion and that sense of enlightenment you seem to have..... will always cast you in a beautiful light....

Ever so true,

I only just discovered you ... reading back has been a pleasure.


PS>I have no poetry to match yours but I invite you to read a recent entry titled a "A Cradled Wonderment".

OH yes, almost forgot, you will find my sense of humour also verbose, crude, with nothing held sacred ... for the same reason you cite for yourself.

Hallo Sallypus thank you for the words that depict for me the ongoing journey and cycle to remain true to yourself. When so many others have access to a piece of you so frequently and without recognising you in their moments of take even when you are so willing to give

You can be yourself and value every minute of each stage
of life with its own stage of beauty, just like in Klimt's
wonderful painting. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

It is always nice to find a another who has found happiness in being who they are, someone who is at peace with their sensuality and is comfortable with it. I must thank FreeLove999 for pointing out your blog.

I'm enjoying and understanding the same journey more every day...the new meds must finally be working *laughing heartily*

Thanks for sharing such a lovely vision of life. You are sensual not only for the way you feel, but the way you think and the way you treat others.
