I’ve joined the exposed movement – started by blogger firstname.lastname@example.org when she decided that she was tired of hating the way she looked and wanted to turn those feelings around and start to celebrate her body. It’s really about body image and how you perceive yourself and feel about the body you inhabit.
So here I am – totally exposed, revealing the naked truths about my self and my body. Yes, I have –
Silver hair – O’natural, won’t ever change the color – it’s wild, unruly, and all mine
Lines in face – store many life stories and adventures – don’t want anyone to take them away
Breasts – got to love em – a source of pleasure for me and others – so what if they sag a bit….just wear a sexy bra from Victoria Secrets
Arms – strong for swimming laps and they love to give hugs
Waist – hey baby 26 inches
Hips – broad and full – all woman – like they should be
Thighs – my tree trunks that pedal me up Mt. Lemmon and 80-100 miles a week
Calves – strong and muscular
Feet – these feet are made for walking
No makeup, hair dye, nips, tucks, botox, chemical peals, enhancements, or photo shopping – just 61 years of living life actively and fully – all the good/bad, ups/downs, joys/sorrows, successes/failures.
There is still soft youthful skin, a fit and athletic body, shapely breasts and a full zesty life. Yes, there are also lines and wrinkles, thinning hair, excess skin, arthritic digits, scars and blemishes… and I’m OK with that. I like myself and am quite content with the skin I live in.
How about you – ready to expose yourself and appreciate all of your great assets?
