    :angel1: i have finally had enough
    and given myself a smile and a hug
    looked in the mirror and said "you're beautiful"
    when every movie that has everyone that has made a mistake
    relates
    to me
    i have finally had enough
    when all that i ran from
    complained about
    fought against
    had panic attacks over
    yearned for and defiled
    is now just fine with me
    then i know that i have turned the corner
    no more stress
    just calm
    and acceptance
    it's what you should be
    once you reach your 40's
    it's not feeling that you missed out in life
    and not regretting the choices you have made
    and loving yourself the way you are
    and not losing your temper
    but smiling with wisdom and knowledge
    and saying it's okay to be a mom
    and still sexy
    but not needing sex to be sexy
    and tan and fly and don't color the gray and
    i could continue
    but instead i plant flowers in boxes on my deck
    for the spring
    and say...it's over
    and i am just happy...being me
    and still being loved
    by those around me

    Wow! I envisioned you as
    a beautiful butterfly
    stretching out of your cocoon!
    Excepting and loving
    the process it took
    to evolve.
    I'm loving the flow!

    Thats what it's all about... Not
    this superficial world's idea of
    what happiness is or should be.

    great write!


    definitely...
    feelin'it souldeep!

    Yes, it is how you should feel, sometimes I am there, sometimes not. But, you worded this so well, it just had an ease and joy to it.
