I see me – at a weight I can live with. It’s taken me years to be able to say that.
I still tend to see my flaws but am trying to embrace them as part of me. I realize that I’m not perfect – and never will be; so I have to love what I have.
I see someone who is not as young as she once was; but is now a confident, strong woman. A woman who is happy where she is in her life – happily married, mother of a teenage boy, a good friend.
My thirties were a turning point in my life and as I begin the journey of my forties – I truly think I am in one of the best places of my life.
No longer do I care (much) about what people think. No longer am I worried that people are looking and laughing at me. No longer am I worried that whatever I say will sound dorky (I know it sometimes will and I don’t care).
I see a woman who is at peace with herself and her place in the world. I see a woman who is happy. And you can’t ask for anymore than that.
