Growing up, I never knew a relaxed woman

Successful women? Yes. Productive women? Plenty. Anxious and afraid and apologetic women? Heaps of them. But relaxed women?

At ease women? Women who aren’t afraid to take up space in the world?

Women who prioritise rest and pleasure and play?

Women who give themselves unconditional permission to relax – without guilt, without apology, without feeling like they need to earn it?

I’m not sure I’ve ever met a women like that.

With the wand of creativity, I banish the shadows of anxiety, ushering a serene calm in its wake.

But I would like to become one.

I would like us all to become one.

In the cosmic dance of life, there is no need to hasten or glitter. The true magic lies in embracing the essence of one’s being, unencumbered by the expectations of others.
