The inspirational quote that touches my soul the most and is a perfect description of me:
“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” -Audrey Hepburn.
I have been told many times in my life that I am strong. I have frequently been the one that people turn to in their times of need. Now that I am in my late 50’s, I have made a promise to start doing things for myself. Maybe it sounds a bit selfish, but I am finally putting my needs first. My family supports and loves me unconditionally. I wake up every day and thank God for all of my blessings.
As I have gotten older and my children have gotten older, I have learned to appreciate quiet time because that is when you can clear your head of any chaos that occurred during your day. I make sure I hide away and have my ‘quiet time’ each day. When my children were young, I did not have the motivation to put on makeup, do my hair, put on a pretty outfit. I was always on the go with them. If I could go back and tell my younger self something, it would be to make time for yourself.
My passion is reading. Give me a good book, a glass of red wine and a comfortable chair – you will find me there for hours. I am also enjoying being a woman now. I feel that I am the most beautiful right now because I am finally able to breath and concentrate on me. My wrinkles and fine lines mean that I have smiled wide and laughed out loud.
