Phenomenal....


I am a woman…………….I have curves…. Full breasts……… hips……… and thighs……….. I am not 5’11…. I am 5 ‘6…… I am not a size 0…. I am size 4….. I am not flat in my chest……… I am a DD cup…… my legs are not stick thin they are strong  with shape……yes woman………..ME………….
There have been many women who have inspired me over the years……….. Too many to mention…………. All but one………….. Ms Maya Angelou…………. The day I discovered her I remember it well…….. I was 15 with already the body of a women……..and a great love for apparel…...but.... with large breast that fashion said NO too…..……….. how cruel I thought it was!...... ………. But Maya…............. she inspired me so much……….. with her I learned to embrace my curves……… accept and love them………. So today I am sharing….just in case you need too embrace YOU too… whether you are 4’11-6’2….. Size 2- 24……. AA cup too FF…………its ok……… no two women are the same……. There is only one of YOU………. Imagine that!!........ all the billions of people in the world……… and only one of YOU………..  Phenomenal woman………. That’s me…..and you and she and her……………(see below for one of Maya's amazing poetry entitled 'Phenomenal Woman)

Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion models size
But when I tell them
They think I’m telling lies
I say
It’s the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my step
The curl of my lips
I am a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
That’s me

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And too a man
The fellow stands or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
A hive of honey bees
I say
It’s the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing in my waist
And the joy in my feet
I am a woman
Phenomenally

Phenomenal women
That’s me

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see
I say
It’s the arch of my back
The sun in my smile
The ride of my breasts
The grace of my style
I’m a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
That’s me

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud
When you see me passing
I ought to make you proud
I say
It’s the click of my heels
The bend of my hair
The palm of my hand
The need for my care
Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally
Phenomenal woman
That’s me.

-Maya Angelou.

Yin and Yang...


My Yin to your Yang..………………… the complete opposite……………… but the fit is so wonderful...... so perfect………..complimenting each other…………… bringing out the very best…………… polar opposite some would say………… but its all in the detail…………… look close…………. See how the little things pull it all together………. The merging of what at first thought should not be……………but works …..so utterly beautiful.

Games....


You meet…………. You like him/her……….. 15 love………………. They call…….. you spend time together…….. 30 love…………… he/she waits a week to call….. 30/15………………. But you speak and it was worth the wait……..30 all………….. you discover irritating habits, can you live with it?................40/30……….. but then you remember you have some habits too…………………Deuce………………….. confirmed as a couple…..Game…Set………Match?.………………….
If only relationships were that simple................no referee needed…….but you and I both know…………the reality is far from that...

The Dark Side.....


Have you ever been tempted?........... to walk over to the dark side……….. your not staying for good………… your just……….. well, you just want to look………… just a peak…………. Just for a moment………… yes that thought…………. to step over the moral line……………… just a sip………… not a mouthful……………. A little taste………. To be bad………….……….. not naughty…………. Bad…………… what stops you?............ its not guilt………………. It’s the knowing that you would like it so dam much………. But there is much to lose…………… too much at stake……………. So for now you flirt…………… flirt with the idea of it…………. Those thoughts………… but no action……………. As you know you cant take it back…………. Ahhh, but that makes it more tempting………………… you know you shouldn’t………… your better self screams no…………….. so you continue to flirt………………. One day you may dip a toe and the juice will be sweet…………… so sweet it will rot your soul.

Shipwrecked....


Life has a way of throwing curve balls………. Just when you least expect it....... just when you thought you had it all under control…………..its ‘man over board’…… you feel shipwrecked……… stranded……………. In a room full of people……….. but strangely all alone…….. you thought that was just you?............. chances are in that same room……… on that same island……….. you are not alone………….. it just feels like that………… the good ole adage of time is a great healer……….. guess what???.......... it’s true. Nothing is status quo………… everything must change………… including you….. you will find your rock within yourself………. Grip it and stand tall.
