One of my good friends called me to meet. She was ready and I said that I could be ready in five minutes. It was 2:00 on Sunday and I was still in my pajamas. I raced upstairs, put a hat on my head, perfume (just like a shower…right?), changed clothes, splashed a little makeup on and I was ready. It really was FIVE minutes. I'm not saying I looked perfect, but this would have never happened at 16. At 16 my breast were perky, my stomach was flatter, my skin was flawless and wrinkle free and I would take TWO HOURS to get ready. I am now 36 and very comfortable with who I am. I know my flaws. I know my strengths. I know who loves me and who I love. I know what I believe and why. I know what I want to be today and tomorrow. I have dreams. I will accomplish some of them and some I may not……that is ok. I like who I am. It is pretty nice to not have to worry about being perfect…..it never worked anyways!
