Goddesses Never Age!
“Goddesses Never Age” by Christiane Northup brought many things to light for me. Pleasure and enjoying life have been something I have a difficult time with. I have a hard time with being free to dance and being authentic in things. I have hopes and desires of sharing my physical beauty and my inner beauty with the world. For me, it stems for a childhood where I was told I was not good enough for anyone to love or appreciate. As I have grown older and started doing some soul work I’ve realized that is not the truth. I’m beautiful in my own way and I can’t compare myself to the other women I see. We all have unique beauty that we should all appreciate about each other. I have a hard time not comparing myself to others and not enjoying my unique qualities.
In Northup’s book she gives tips, tools, and ideas to learn pleasure and joy in your own life. Some of the suggestions I am uncomfortable with simply because I don’t have the freedom for it and I need to figure out how it interconnects with my personal moral code and beliefs. I am waiting for Jesus to guide me to what I should know and do. Listening to my own body is a task that I must make a priority in my own life. Northup’s book main theme is listening to your body so that you can adjust what needs to be done in order to be healthy and find pleasure in life. I like that.
