What is it with most people, I include myself (at times) are never really happy with what we have or who we are. Is it just human nature? We don’t really appreciate childhood, until it’s gone. I know I didn’t really relax and enjoy my teen years, I wish I had.
I read a young woman’s blog where she wants to be more than just ‘the pretty girl’. I read older people’s blogs where they resent that they are no longer ‘the pretty girl’ or guy. I’ve found that’s true, as I get older I find I become more invisible.
When I was young, thin, petite, and cute with big boobs, my friends used to use me as bait in the bar to get free drinks. During those years I remember being frustrated that most guys didn’t know I had brown eyes. Heck, as an old Mom, I think it would make my day just to get one double take! These are the days of, Ma’am, and ‘that’s Nick’s Mom’ (or Alaura or Lisa). Soooo I guess I need to take my own advice and just relax and enjoy being a "ma’am", someone’s OLD Mom…. heaven knows the outside of us always goes, even for the most beautiful, so I better make sure the one part of me that will stay young, my soul, and my personality, are not dull or boring.
I think I’m doing pretty good so far, besides if they only knew some of the things that really go on inside my head…. well let’s just say that’s what keeps me occupied and is probably more fun than it should be. Are you enjoying where you are at in life? Being part of your children’s life, what ever stages they may be in? Relax, ENJOY, LOVE! BIG HUGSS, Steph
