For the life of me, I have no clue where 2016 went…Seems like I closed my eyes for a 10 minute catnap and woke up to the entire year gone. My daughter who I swear I still look at and see that bouncing toddler with the multitude of ringlets and contagious belly laugh is now almost as tall as I am…(not that 5’4″ is tall by any means but any mom will easily get my point). At 36, I spend more time than I would like to admit standing in front of the mirror removing annoying grey hairs that seem to multiply by the day. I wake up some days wondering when the hell my body decided it was going to start falling apart, and why I couldn’t have been told how much a woman’s body changes after 30. I once ate everything I wanted when I wanted, never gave a second thought about how many boxes (yes I said boxes lol) of cookies I went through in any given amount of time, cause I simply never gained a pound. My body creaks and cracks and calls the shots now. I get overly emotional at little things and yet somehow bigger things trigger a response of sheer strength that sometimes shocks everyone around me. Yep, even with all of my quirks,one thing I know without a doubt….. I’m one pretty damn hardheaded and strong woman….because I made the choice years ago to be that way! So, bring it on 2017. I’m here and I’m hoping you slow down just a bit so that I can take each and every moment in. ☺️
This is the post excerpt.
As a woman, there are many days that I find myself asking “Have I been all that I can be today? Have I given every ounce of myself to those around me and the things that I do?” Truth is, I have absolutely no idea if I have even transcended through the surface of all that I am capable of. But one thing I have learned as I get older, as long as your focus is being who you are and putting your heart into every single day, you will always be your own superwoman!
