Forties, Fun, Fearless and Fashionably Fabulous – Part 3

I am at my best by the ocean, in pink, and under the sunset!

In my goddess dictionary, an “F” word has nothing to do with profanity. For me, the “F word” stands not only for FREEDOM, but also for a variety of other words which perfectly describe the modern day goddess. As a lover of languages and beautiful speech, here are my 6 favorite “F” words which perfectly depict where I am in my life and how powerful and confident I feel. 

1.       Free – My 4th decade of life moved me suddenly into total confidence to express myself fully without doubt, without worry of others’ opinions, and without constraints. Most importantly, free from guilt, shame and blame! I have never felt so powerful, so honest and so open with my inner truth, and so beautiful in my own light.

2.       Fearless – As I grow older and wiser, I am more brave.  I honestly fear nothing and care very little about what others think of me. I love challenges even more and face adversity as lessons that I have to go through and deal with in order to grow and to learn. After all, life is a journey of learning, living, and loving with all your heart and soul without fear, don’t you think?

3.       Fun –  When I was younger, no one told me that the forties stage was going to be the best decade ever! Now that I am experiencing this wonderful time, I cannot wait to get to the next decade! That just means I am ready for more knowledge, more experiences, more fun, and more wisdom! Because of my total respect for my own freedom and my time, I can guiltlessly choose to do only what I love and be with only those I love who make my life fun and full of surprises. For example, if I feel like hopping on a plane and traveling to a deserted island for some solitude to recharge, I can do so because I choose to and it makes me happy, just like playing volleyball in the park with my favorite goddess and titan at midnight if it so pleases me.

4.       Fabulous – How fabulous is it to be in my forties? I have so much intense inner strength and divine power inside that I naturally attract wonderful and fabulous people and energy everywhere I go without much effort. 

5.       Fashionable – As a fashion designer, taste maker, and lover of sensuality, my own style and how I express myself have changed. How I dress today really defines how I feel deep down inside: Feminine, free, sensual, confident, and spiritually awakened. Fashion is not about expensive clothes and designer labels or even overdoing it. It simply is about celebrating your own personal style and natural beauty while keeping it timeless, unique, feminine, and with understated sex appeal. And less is always more in my “tu-anh LOVE” dictionary.  When it comes to fashion, a goddess should keep it feminine and tasteful and wear natural fabrics that allow the body to breathe and be free to move with ease. When we look good and feel good, we bring joy to those around us and that is oh so fashionably forties and fab!

And Lastly, Feminine is #6 on my list of favorite “F” words. In my teenage years, my body grew up much faster than I did. For a period of time, I always felt shy about my “Marilyn Monroe” figure and used to conceal my voluptuousness with loose-fitting clothes. Flash forward to my twenties, thirties, and now forties, I have learned to embrace my femininity and accept my womanly figure that is not so typical of an Asian female. Femininity is a part of who I am and how God has created me. This is the goddess essence that has emerged powerfully in my forties that I hope to inspire all modern day women to own and embrace regardless of their age.

I love how animals are naturally drawn to me, especially island cats!

I certainly have not experienced my 50’s and 60’s yet. But all I can say is “WOW” to my forties decade. Life can’t get better than this! I know who I am, what I want, and that includes what I do not want. I no longer make my life’s decisions based on needs, but instead, they are based on what I choose and what I desire.  How about you? What is a favorite decade of your life?

I do not need someone to buy me flowers and make me happy.

 

 

Jeans and Jazz on the Potomac

 

Clear blue sky and wonderful view of the Lincoln Memorial.

I had so much fun this past Sunday evening spending quality time with some of my favorite goddesses and fans dancing the night away on the Potomac at Jeans and Jazz – On the Water benefiting We Will Survive Cancer. The music was good to dance to, the view was nice to look at, and the sunset was beautiful! Oh and the Belly Dancer,  Asala El-Masri, was gorgeous and seductive!

With my busy schedule and so many causes in Washington DC Area, I can’t give all my time away without making time for me. So I usually am selective about what events to attend and support. Jeans and Jazz on the Water will take place again next Summer and I hope to have you join me there.

Below are some photos from the event in case you are interested.

Gorgeous Persian Goddess Karen Sami is the heart behind this fun event with the cute bartenders!

I love these two goddesses! Gayela, on the right is the Founder of We Will Survive Cancer!

One Door Closes, Another Door Opens…New Moon in Virgo

eyes closing

At the end of a work day when no one is around, I like to close my eyes and just dream in quietness.

When you want something to change in your life really badly, all you have to do is ask!  Are you feeling the energy of this new moon in Virgo today? I have! At least over this past weekend I did. I have been asking the universe to give me signs and clarity for my romantic life. And surely, I got what I asked for. A relationship that has not been emotionally healthy for me finally had closure. I feel so relieved while at the same time hurt and sad, but I am glad that I finally have closure and am able to move on with my life. Don’t get me wrong. I was a hot mess this weekend. For the past few days, I felt like the world had ended. I slept lots and was not very productive at work.

But this morning, I woke up to the energy of this new moon in Virgo and told myself “tu-anh, you need to snap out of it, what happened was meant to be so that you could heal and grow.” And so…I am now out of that darkness and sadness.

In the meantime, I am so excited about my new found emotional freedom. It is the perfect time for me to take charge of my life and get clear about what I want, who I want, and where I want to go. I am learning to slow down and carefully monitoring my thoughts and actions to make sure they all align with my life’s purpose and what I truly stand for…Love, Beauty, Sensuality, Happiness and Truth…

I can feel doors closing and new doors opening around me day by day. I wish, for example, I could share with you a wonderful miracle that happened today at the sanctuary. But for now, I will celebrate this new moon energy and indulge in a therapeutic goddess essential-oils bath with beautiful rose petals floating around me. After tonight, my mind and body will be cleansed and healed from any fears and doubts that have been holding me back from living my most beautiful life.

So here is to new love, new life, and new doors opening! I am so thrilled! And you, will you celebrate this new moon energy along with me tonight?
