Unconditional Body Beautiful: Part Nine: MY FACE IS UP HERE

My face, I’ve seen it age along with me through all these years.

My faithful companion. the first thing that greets everyone i meet.

I’ve seen it get rounder, thinner and then rounder again.

I’ve noticed as laugh lines began to caress it’s cheeks,

as small lines began to trace the corners of its eyes.

I’ve watched as its features have been framed by flecks of grays.

And yes! I enjoy getting you all dolled up, but I love seeing you au natural the most.

There’s nothing more amazing than the feeling of the sun kissing your skin

or seeing the way you glow in its warmth.

I believe aging is a right of passage.

A right of passage not experienced by many,

so instead I choose to celebrate the transition of time.

The beauty of life and the reflection of that beauty

making its stamp on my face for all to see.

My face, people say you should be tweaked, nipped, tucked

but I love your lines, your softness.

They are all badges of honor i proudly wear.

I’ve seen as time has morphed your younger features into those of a more mature woman,

A more confident woman.

And I love being able to witness every moment of this journey.

Until next time my lovelies– remember to be kind and loving to yourselves,


Unconditional Body Beautiful is a self-love series created by Rebequita Rose“It is a year-long collaboration which I created-slash-founded, and I will be doing this with many other bloggers…We will focus mostly on discussing our bodies more than on fashion, but at the same time we will fuse the two together.”


On the 18th of every month we will each publish a new post discussing that month’s theme (body part), so be sure to keep an eye out for the hashtag on social media for some wonderful posts and body love inspiration.

    1. Thank you so much again Melissa for your sweet words.
      And you’re so right, we do get caught up with this mentality that we need to search for perfection or that aging is the worst thing that can happen to us. When in fact it’s the contrary.
