There's something very empowering about modeling nude, especially at the age of 51. Let's face it, I'm not 20, or even 30 or 40-something anymore, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Even when I can be extremely critical of myself, and judge my body harshly, I view the finished photos and see a mature woman who just doesn't give a fuck any longer about what society says.
Where did our beauty standards come from anyway? I don't buy into culture's marketing-brainwashing tactics. This body of mine has delivered me through the joys and pains of this amazing life (so far) and will get me to wherever else I'm destined for.
There's beauty in the laugh-lines around my eyes - I laugh A LOT!
There's compassion in the stretch-marks on my belly - I birthed 2 incredible children!
There's power in every wrinkle on my hands - They have written stories, fed people, grown gardens, changed diapers...
There's energy in my curves - (and guys love them!)
I am mindful of who I am. I am a well-rounded goddess. I live my life deliberately. Seriously, this isn't about vanity or ego. This is about women encouraging and supporting women. Who says women over 50 can't be sexy? Certainly not this 51-year-old divine being!
Empower yourself today. You are a lovely beautiful goddess!
