How to be a woman

Welcome to the mind

Of a girl interrupted

Realistic, honest, positive

A girl who grew into a woman

Possibly probably fabulously corrupted


Femininity shone from her effervescent presence

Belief in her spirit echoed

Devilry, mischief

Her sweetness evanescence


She knows what she wants

Stands up for what she believes

At the risk of being crucified,

Love can be a risk, it deceives


She will fight for you

If believes in you

She will teach you

It is irrefutable,

she knows

How to be a woman


A woman knows how to

make broken look beautiful

make love look like her own personal sun is shining

She can make happy look delicious

and make blossoms bloom on her silver lining


She is madly in love with love

Her love sets you free

She holds her breath

And makes her wish

You are free to love the real me

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
