Beauty and Self-Image
I see beauty everywhere, I see it in the sky, blue and full of clouds, I see it in the forests so full of trees and green. I see it on the smiling face of children and in my lover's voluptuous form. Sometimes June has trouble seeing herself as I do. As I am sure you know, June's past has a lot to do with that. She is as beautiful and radiant as the sun and I am working hard to change her perception of what beauty is. I won't say it's the whole reason, but I think the media has significantly contributed to what I believe is an unrealistic and unobtainable standard of beauty for both men and women. I guess I've always had a unique and different mindset, but the beauty of human form is undeniable. The differences between us all are to be celebrated. Tall or short, light or dark, we are all a testament to design and shape.
She knows that I don't tolerate any self-disparaging remarks or down talk about herself. I think that a positive self-image is a important part of any healthy relationship, and even more so when that relationship contains elements of Domestic Discipline. I celebrate her beauty and grace in my life daily. The impact of her beautiful spirit, her kindness, her wisdom and grace are as potent and delightful as the sensual gift that her curvy form is. Every inch of her skin from head to toe speaks of my delight and the warmth that radiates (sometimes literally) from within.
We want to be the couple walking down the street that everyone notices... Not for the clothes we wear or the car we drive but the relationship. We want the beauty and light of our relationship to speak for itself. Being rich in family and spirit is something that we all delight in and we love to let it shine.
As for physical beauty, with everything else I guess there is just no accounting for tastes. June knows that I love her body, and that her body type is what calls to me.. I like curves, always have always will and as she gains confidence, I've noticed that June is becoming less afraid to use them on me! I find her increasing confidence sexy and marvel at how anybody ever found her less than beautiful. My tastes tend to run toward what was once considered classic. My tastes tend to run towards the curvy and the rubenesque...
A positive self-image is more than sexy, it's the foundation of confidence and pride. The beauty we carry inside is stronger and deeper than the world around us!
I have to tell you that I am sitting here with a raging blush, first for Daddy's effusive praise, and secondly because my boldness has been noted (of course I know he notes it, but to have it pointed out that I'm not necessarily as demure as I like to be....oh my). I am Daddy's girl, I am Ward's woman, and I enjoy expressing my love of and my desire for him in many ways.
When I am with him, this mundane world disappears, and the world we inhabit is a beautiful place - the landscape is verdant, the sky is azure in day, and a velvet midnight blue painted riotously with stars at night, beauty abounds and the air is fresh and sweet with botanical scents. When I am with him, my body sings, and I feel as elegant and beautiful and full of grace as any dancer that lights a stage afire with her passion. When I am with him I am who I always dreamed I could be. I am free and unfettered, and without limits.
When he is not here, when he is floating beneath the jeweled sea, I ache for the things that are but pale ghosts without him - and I work with all my might to remain worthy of our life and his esteem.
I don't know if I will ever feel beautiful to the world, but I feel beautiful to him, and that is all that really matters, isn't it? I love you, mo Rí.
