You are Beautiful

I wish you could see the person I do
the positive
the vibrant
the wonderful you


I wish you good health
& vitality in your life
energy
strength
without discomfort or (too much) sacrifice



I wish you confidence,
motivation
courage


I wish you determination
to be the you,
you want to be,
beautiful
& kind
the one with the twinkle in their eye



Because they are exactly who they want to be

The feminine mystique

A heart that whispers

I am ready to love

A body yearning

So fragile

delicate

but ready to touch

*

Her spirit

Her essence

Her breath entwined

Thoughts that magic sprinkle

A mysterious mind

*

A beauty alluring

Complex

unique

Compelling

Universal celebration

Looking within

The feminine mystique

Menopause

Menopause is normal. The symptoms of menopause do not have to be a part of your life.

*

*

Attempting to capture light hearted take on Menopause

*

*

Please excuse me

I need to fan myself

I feel so goddam hot

But where is my fan, I need it now

it seems where i put it, I FORGOT

*

Oh dear, I think my pants have shrunk in the wash

my goodness they feel so tight

a salad a day is all i eat

I am still so bloated despite

*

My stress in high

my libido is low

my belly and chin hairs

continue to grow and grow

*

i look in the mirror

Just as I feared

I resemble my 80 year old mother

I now own 3 chin hairs, it’s my very own a beard

*

I no longer ovulate

My eggs have up and flown

My periods are heavy

I have low progesterone

*

My estrogen is low

My lady bits are dry

Having sex is painful

I try to not to cry

*

i get so weepy

I’m always sleepy

my family say I’m bitchy

My skin is itchy

*

Who are these kids

Mine?

Ive forgotten their names

John

Joe, Jesse

Jimmy

oops I mean oh its James

*

Why is this happening

what is the cause

My doctor says you are normal Dear

it is “ONLY” menopause

*

*

YES it is normal. It is the natural advancement in a woman’s life.

*

Do you have to experience and live with the symptoms of menopause

*

No!

Transition

From her tippy toes to the top of her head

Warmth rising

Flushing her cheeks

To a glorious rosy red

*

Giddiness, joy, elation

Her head did spin

Was it the champagne

Or daily life intoxication

*

A beautiful memory

A face looking at her

Feeling nostalgic

oh dear how young we were

*

Her life of spectacular moments

Tells story upon her beautiful face

Softness, fine lines

Charming, full of grace

*

Youth lays behind

Only in time

Keep dreaming of that life

Passion keeps you in prime

*

A turning point

A time of transition

A time in life

A new definition

*

From light to dark

She will shine inside

It’s grey, Imperfect

Move effortlessly through to the other side

*

Wisdom and experience

As she enters a new phase

Elegance, truth and love

She will continue to navigate life’s maze

*

Welcome to middle age a time of transition. It doesn’t have to be a time of darkness. Stay in the light 💋💋💋

#thursday prompt Sue Vincent

That life inside of you ❤️

To my fellow middle aged mums, do you remember this moment. Those beautiful moments of feeling your baby move. Knowing you are growing a precious life inside you. This little human is part of you, is you and is now your life. Your world. My children are now 23 and 21. They are still my world, my life, my everything’s. Who else still feels like this?

Did you feel me move

I’m playing in your tummy

I am coming very soon

I can’t wait to meet you mummy

*

Daddy lay your hands on me

Gently touch mummy’s tummy

I will be your most precious human

irreplaceable, no amount of money

*

I’m coming into your world

I’ll be here very soon

I’ll shine brighter than all the stars

More brilliant than the fullest moon

*

Nine months inside your body

I’ve listened to your heartbeat

dear mummy, one day soon

We are really going to meet

*

I picked myself a mummy

I picked myself a daddy

I found two people to comfort me,

Wipe my button nose, when it’s runny

*

I will be your adored little girl

No longer just a dream

You will look at me with love

Gentle words and eyes agleam

*

I cannot wait to see your face

I cannot wait to feel your touch

Swaddle me with your love

There will never be too much

*

What color will my eyes be

Blue, brown, or green

I’m going to have the prettiest eyes

That you both have ever seen

*

Do you promise to kiss me every night

on my perfect lips and nose,

Do you promise to play with me,

count my little fingers and toes

*

This little piggy,

Daddy can we play

Be by my side always

Never go away

*

I want to have bubble baths

I want to cuddle a teddy bear

but most of all I just want

my mum and dad to always be there

*

Teach me about this thing called life

I want to do everything

Good,

wondrous

learn from all the strife

*

Teach me how to count

Teach me how to cook

Teach me the alphabet

And how to read a book

*

Lets pick flowers

Cuddle for hours

Teach me kindness

So my morals are the finest

*

Teach me to be like you two

*

We will run in puddles

Play in the rain

Eat ice cream

Again and again

*

I have so much to look forward to

I love you both so much

My best day is yet to come

When I feel your loving touch

💗💗💗💗
