Being over the age of forty now is a game changer!
|I truly don’t remember which book I took this
picture from….but it is so true!!!
Life truly does change:
What I say is:
Don’t fight it!
Don’t argue with it!
I’m not above moments of ugh….but here is what almost 41 looks like for me:
I don’t care what others think about me!
I don’t care if I didn’t shave my legs and I am still going to wear a skirt (a long skirt…but a skirt non-the-less).
I don’t care if I have strong muscular legs versus long ballerina legs!
I don’t care if I am only 5 foot 1 inch and will never be able to pull off some straight elegent run-way evening gown.
I don’t care that I love wearing my Mary-Jane crocs with my church dresses versus heels.
I just don’t care what others think!!!! I only care about the freedom and love I experience from and with God! I only care that I am listening to what HE tells me I should do in taking care of myself: mind, body, and soul!
I respect my genetic make up!
I respect my strengths!
I respect what I see in the mirror!
I respect the amazing God who created me….and trusted me to take care of me!
I have embraced ALL THAT I AM!!
You should too!!!
Be an amazing example to the girls and women around you.
Be the example you wish you would have had!
And by all means:
Journal today about how you have been loving yourself better, and what you still need to work on!
hugs and prayers always,
