#23 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Danyelle | Role of Tattoo Art in Body Image

September 20, 2021

In this episode, Danyelle talks about tattoo art and its role in body image, life-changing experiences, and different reasons why people do tattoos. She also talks about the psychology and symbolism behind tattooing.

As an old-school professional tattoo artist, Danyelle talks about the importance of ethics a tattooer should have.

A tattooist often becomes a trusted person with whom people share their stories and secrets. Often a tattoo artist helps people to transit through their most important life events.

Danyelle says that even if it’s a full-back or a tiny tattoo, it is a way of expressing something that is within a person. It is a reflection of who they are as a person and should be respected equally.

Danyelle also talks about her favorite cover-up tattoos.

Danyelle’s advice to younger women is:

Know your own value. Be true to yourself. Educate yourself, don’t take everyone else’s word as truth, know your own core beliefs. Protect and look after your health – mind, body, soul.

#22 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Kylie

#22 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Kylie

September 13, 2021

In this episode, Kylie talks about how being in service, has been a thread in her life - from being an older sister to a mother to a personal development professional. She says that she has been incredibly resilient through the ups and downs of her life in that role.

She also talks about recently going through a period of change that made her deep dive into a lot of self-reflection and re-inventing in herself. It’s been scary, challenging, and at the same time incredibly exciting for Kylie. She says that the biggest challenge was not forcing it and allowing time to reform and rebirth.

Living for 33 years at her happy place – sunny Gold Coast - Kylie gets her energy from nature and is passionate about human connection, health and well-being, arts and crafts, and socialising.

 

Her positive changes which she experienced with age are a better sense of self, self-awareness (how and why I engage with others the way I do), self-acceptance, and self-respect.

Her advice to younger women is - Trust your path, your journey in life. Life has its hurdles, they will come and go, and there is a lesson in every one of them. And they are for our growth and well-being.

This is the 45 over 45 chapter of MY BODY MY STORY podcast, where we celebrate rule breakers and role models - the women who inspire us to live life our way and to show their SENSUALITY,  BEAUTY, SOUL, and TRUE ESSENCE.

#21 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Lucie

September 6, 2021

In this episode, Lucie talks about the roots of a perfect body image idea. She believes it’s in a woman's own mind, warmed up by society and cultural pressure, and the idea actually goes against nature. She says that we grow up to be a woman and our body is not supposed to be a teenage body for the rest of our life.

 

She also talks about how she was a TV model in her younger years and is planning to do it again.

 

Lucie talks about how she is dealing with people's drama every day at work, as she is a psychiatric nurse in the emergency department. She knows that to have good mental health you just need to do very simple things – eat well, sleep well, exercise and have good relationships.

 

She says that nothing beats a genuine smile on a woman’s face. You don’t even think about how you look when you are happy. Happiness is very attractive.

#20 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Riska

August 30, 2021

In this episode, Riska describes her life as a rollercoaster ride – thrilling, exciting, a lot of ups and downs, but she really enjoyed the ride.

 

She’s been through a lot of good and bad times but overcame it all and is proud of herself. She sees herself as not a survivor, but rather a warrior because she fights until the end.

 

She talks about when you are young you expect to be perfect; you try to change yourself to fit into society. But once you get older you understand that it’s important to be who you really are.

 

She also says that you have to make peace with yourself to accept your body, your skin and start loving yourself. For Riska, self-love is not selfish it’s called self-respect.

August 23, 2021

In this episode, Lisa talks about how having the body of a 58-year-old, but mind, aspirations, and dreams of a 20-year-old, makes her want to be on the move and try new things.

 

Whether it’s moving countries, riding on the back of a friend's bike, climbing, drumming, singing, walking barefoot on the beach or diving into waves, it keeps her young.

 

If she could change anything in her life, she thinks she would not.

 

She is still working towards living her life loud and dreaming big!

#18 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Kyla

#18 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Kyla

August 16, 2021

In this episode, Kyla talks about the idea young women are raised with - the idea that you will meet a man, you marry him, you buy a house, you have children. But no one talks about how it consumes 20 years of your life… and what is AFTER that. It's only when you hit that line you start thinking – sh&%t, what am I going to do now?

 

Also, as a Manager of a chain of adult stores, Kyla talks about the importance of breaking down stigma and barriers around sexuality, likes and dislikes, and what’s perceived as right and wrong in anything of a sexual nature. She says that a lot of women in their 50s and 60s who visit the stores she manages never had or used toys. Going through them and making women realise that it’s not that scary, and fun is an important part of Kyla’s mission. She thinks that it's incredibly important for self-care that every woman deserves self-pleasure every now and then.

With the biggest challenge of realising her mortality, Kyla wants to do more, to get out there and make the most of it. She wants to leave the rest of her life, not having regrets and do everything she wants to do.

 

Her advice to younger women - You need to make sure that you are putting yourself first! And yep….Don’t eat that extra donut!

#17 My Body My Story 45 Over 45 - Adriana

August 9, 2021

In this episode, Adriana talks about her 1year personal development project of reading 1 book a week - to learn about how a woman’s body and brain work and how hormonal changes throughout the years change them.

 

She also talks about the importance of mother-daughter conversations from an early age and women’s network support at the perimenopause stage, because when you know what is going to happen to your body and you have the freedom to talk about it, it helps a lot.

 

Her advice to younger women:

Don’t give up your goals so easily! We can have it all, just not all at the same time.

 

So, be kind and patient to yourself, don’t give up on taking care of yourself. Have time to yourself and wear high heels to feel yourself the most beautiful!
