Words have a profound effect on me, they can snap me out of a funk, motivate the hell out of me and know that I am not alone in my thoughts and feelings. Aging is not for the faint of heart, I feel especially for women but there is something quite liberating about it. I say NO a lot more often to mundane time wasting requests from family and friends and Hell YES to the things that light me up.
As you get to know me you come to realize I have a few life mentors on this Journey Dame Helen Mirren is one of them.
"Forget the word beauty, and find another word that applies to you. My word is swagger. It's not your beauty; it's your swagger. "
