Picture Prompt #10-I Am Beautiful

image

When I was young, walking in circles with colorful strings, singing and dancing with my friends was the most important thing in the world to me. I wanted to be beautiful and I was.

When I was a teenager, wearing pretty dresses and getting invited to dances was the most important thing to me. I wanted to be beautiful and I was, but I didn’t always feel beautiful.

When I graduated from college, it was the most important thing to me to meet the right man, fall in love, have a family, have a career and live my life. I wanted to feel beautiful and I was, but I forgot to tell myself that I was beautiful and I stopped seeing myself that way.

I still have fun with my friends and walk with colorful strings in circles once in a while, but I tend to get dizzy. I would much rather climb an obstacle, do a cartwheel and feel healthy.

I still wear pretty dresses that I can afford because I have a career that buys me what I want, but usually at Walmart because why spend more when you don’t have to.

I have a family. I have two beautiful boys that give me the pleasure of being a mom every day. I have a job that I love and that I’m damn good at and a second job that feeds my passion. I get to write whenever I want because I usually have something to say. I travel when I can and I grow and learn as much as possible.

I don’t know if I have the right man but I realize that I don’t need a man to make me happy. I would like one to be my partner and make me feel complete.

I try to be objective and open minded. I try to be the best me that I can. I am beautiful.

There is wisdom with age.

When I feel beautiful, that is how the world will see me.
