I feel more secure and self confident in my thirties than I ever did in my twenties. Does this sound familiar to you? Ever wondered why? Is it life experience? A big change in life? Looking back in your journey and how you’ve changed, you notice those little, defining moment’s in a woman’s life that add up over time and make you strong and comfortable in your skin.
The moment when….
…you stop dressing for anyone but yourself.
…you decide to love and embrace your body the way it is.
…you have the balls to turn someone down into their face, rather than being polite and do it anyway.
…you stop lying about your age. In your thirties (and on) you’re actually proud of your age, because you embarrass some of the twenty something year old chicks.
…you stop over analyzing things (unless it’s work related). You’re too busy to read between the lines.
…you don’t try to please EVERYONE. You realize you’re human; you give your best and also give yourself a break.
…you reach a point where if they don’t respond, you believe it’s entirely their loss, and move on with your life.
…you work out on a regular basis not because of losing weight, but because of your desire to lead a healthy lifestyle.
…you are not looking for a man to sweep in and save you from this life. You’re just looking for someone who’s going to balance you out, and support you emotionally and mentally.
…you can’t be bothered with petty drama. Life is too short and your plate is full as it is.
…you realize the only type of woman you have to be is the woman who you really are.
What do you think are the defining moments in a woman’s life? What are yours?
