What I’m learning about myself in my forties

I am soft. This is one of the first things you will notice about me. My body is curvy and round. My expression is kind and warm. I will touch your hand or arm as we talk. I hug everyone.

I’m so soft.

That softness can make it easy for the world to get in, it’s true. It hurts me, sometimes. A lot.




We will not be tamed.
