She saw every wrinkle and crease on her face not as flaws but for what they really were, beauty marks that were proof of a life well lived. – Queenisms™
Language matters. When we call ourselves old, ugly, crones, or worse, we’re creating a feeling within ourselves of “we are not enough.” That couldn’t be further from the truth. The next time you look in the mirror, speak out loud to yourself. Thank yourself for having earned each and every laugh line and wrinkle on that beautiful face of yours. Put joyful feelings, rather than fearful ones, toward yourself. Give yourself permission to really see the beauty in experience, wisdom and perseverance. That’s what a life well lived looks like – pure beauty.
