“You’re not getting older. You’re getting more entitled to be your fabulous self.”—Gwen Stefani
As I sat on the edge of the bed today in my mother’s bedroom, pictures of me lined the wall. Of course, I was not so startled to see the difference between me now and me at age 10. My mother says that I was born at 18 years old and started growing up from there. Of course, that is her way of saying that I have an old soul. This is something an intuitive friend of mine tells me quite often also.
What did amaze me to realize as I looked over the visual timeline of my life was the realization that I am not the same person today as I was just one year ago. As I am approaching the one year mark of the SexyWhispers blog, I realize how fully my own sexuality has blossomed due to this place. People that I have met, ideas that I have gathered, and information that I have shared has affected me…the way I live my life…aloud for the world to see…..without shame.
And, realizing that I am not the same person that I was 12 short months ago helped me to realize one more thing….I won’t be the same person next year either if I am lucky. By embracing who I am I can no longer “play small.” I can no longer live in my own isolation of belief without screaming into the darkness. I can no longer stand on the sidelines accepting the person scared to hug… love… laugh… share…. be.
I can reach all the way around the world with words of comfort, friendship, peace….and yes…sexual acceptance. As I plan the one year celebration of SexyWhispers, I know I am ready to fabulous!
How about you? ~~Dee
