Today, on my 40th
I went to town this morning & on the way home I stopped at a florist shop-flowers ALWAYS make me feel good! and today being my 40th-I REALLY want to feel good! I specifically pointed to the oldest ones that were open & bruised with brown edges-I turned my head for a second and when I looked back I saw the girl was picking off the brown petals! I said "NO! I like them 'RUSTIC' looking"-she said "OKAY? that's a first!" and made a face-well I can't help it-I like them like that! So on the drive home I came to a realization-whenever I have the opportunity to purchase something for my home I prefer something with 'patina'- chips, cracks, flaws, worn but definitely something AGED. I find that is when something is most beautiful. I am like a lot of women who struggle with CHANGES as we age but in all reality I am SO loved within my home and they see me as beautiful-my issues are my own- SO I think it's best I try to let it go and embrace my own 'patina' and the imperfections I see in the mirror.
