Did anyone prepare you for getting older? I was not prepared when the hairs in my nose decided to come out where I would have to trim them, nor was I prepared when hair grew on my upper lip. Or when the cute moles on my face grew and had to be removed, then there was the size 3 body that I had for over 40 years changed, the hips spread, the flat stomach now looks like a bowling ball and no matter how much the exercise or lack of food I have there is no weight loss (sigh)
No, no one prepared me for getting older. When I think of myself, I think of the slim childish person that my heart says I am. Then I look in the mirror and say "this is not me, where did I go?" It reminds me of the movie Peter Pan when the little boy looks into Robin Williams eyes and says "Oh, there you are Peter." I look into the my eyes and say "oh, there you are."
Ahh, the world may not see it but I'm still the childish person I've always been no matter what changes my body goes thru. So, I'll just save the size 3 clothing, my body may not be able to fit in it but my heart always will :)
Hope everyone has a good week!
