A Tall Velma, Not a Daphne

Much time and energy

Spent fighting the truth

Of my body.

Even at peak physical


My body reflects

the inner geeky,



Yet curvy

Body of a

Tall Velma.

Reaching, wishing,

Even lightening

my Locks to red,


Desiring to be even

A small

reflection of

Daphne’s beauty.

My sexuality hidden beneath

The comfortable corded

Irish wool

Sweaters I so adore.

When being handed out

Looks, Velma was in

Line for books.

We chatted, unaware

Of what we were missing…

So to experience the depth

and breadth

Of my mysteries, one

Needs to see past the

The flesh.

This always brings

On a good measure

Of sadness;

To accept that Velma

Hides the Goddess.

Then laughter ensues,

Envy over a cartoon!

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. Tiffany, you ARE a beautiful woman! 🙂 There is no hidden Goddess…you are visibly beautiful from the outside and felt on the inside.<3 I think you are working through this well…just make a double check that it isn't you that is hiding your Goddess from the world 🙂

    1. Dearest Michael, Such a catalyst you are for me with your comment spurring me into another aspect of this journey. Having already scheduled today’s posts, I am going to be posting what I’m learning from this strong feeling of not being beautiful. Thank you for your words! I’m doing my best to receive them. Thank you for dropping by and leaving a reply, changing my trajectory to something I have been avoiding. =)

      1. ❤️thank you! I love the naughty thoughts. Helps keep the cold weather from affecting me, Fiery Leo.
        I’m starting a new process tomorrow. I’ll see how this feels in 22 days. Right now, it still makes me squirm to believe your complimentary words about my body. ❤️ Finally accepting the word Goddess!
        Resistance is a bitch.

      2. Hi Tiffany, sorry I haven’t been as active as I would like to be on your blog…the volume has just overwhelmed me and I had to surrender. 😉 I hope you are still getting good engagement from other followers though. If not, you might want to consider the tempo…two-three per week. I’ll keep checking in though 🙂

      3. I understand. The fire to create has been hard for me to stop. Realizing earlier today I’ve been running a marathon at a sprint pace. So I’m backing down to max 2/day…& doing best to keep them sweet and short. Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate it.

      4. FYI I’ve edited some of the longer posts down that were already published. So if you’re still wanting to read, online is better than email to save some time. Sorry for the blast!
