Malena the Mom
My daughter is having her 12th birthday today. It's a sleep over of course. I've got 8 little tweens running about, singing and giggling to high heaven. What a day!
I love being a Mom. It's so funny when a little girl comes up to me and says,
"How old are you? About 22?" Then, when I tell her how old I really am she says,
"Like.. Oh my Gosh! NO way! That's old!"
Only a 10 year old could think 32 is old. But I remember the days when I thought the same thing.Haaaaaaa
I don't understand this, "Don't tell your age" business. I love getting older and wiser. I am so SO SO much happier than I was at 22. As women, we must celebrate ourselves, not cut ourselves and each other down. We are the creators of life. It is our job to be loving examples of compassion and light. If not you, then WHO?
Lorraine is a good example of a strong woman. One day, we were checking into a hotel. We walked up to the counter and she told the customer service person what we needed. I can't tell you how differently we were treated once she opened her mouth. Due to her confidence and poise, we were treated like Queens. People take their cues from YOU on how you want to be treated. So, if you are feeling like no one listens to you, look at your body language. It's a big indicator of how you feel inside. One of our favorite saying is from Ghostbusters when Bill Murray says,
"If someone asks you if you are a God, say YES!"
So, get out there and work it girls! Show the world what beautiful, bright, amazing, empowered beings you are! Don't be shy, time is a wasten'!
Love you all
