Today I turned 38.
There was cake, gifts and hugs from my boys, out of tune singing, more cake, lots of well wishes and a chat with my bestie. I felt overwhelming love for my children, kissed my love, told my Mum I love her and thanked her for having me, loving me and supporting me every day of my life.
I also took myself shopping and saw this dress on the hanger. I was drawn to the spots but wasn’t sure how it would look…..as I did up the zipper I felt that the reflection in the mirror was actually me. Really me. I haven’t felt that good in a dress (or anything) in 20 years.
I feel like I am finally, FINALLY getting comfortable in my own skin. I know who I am, what I am good at, what I totally suck at, what I want to change and what makes me happy. I know what I want and what I don’t. I’m hitting my stride.
Today I turned 38 and I am happy to be me.
